There Is a Huge Difference!

Most of you know exactly what I’m talking about here. You wake up day in and day out tired, achy, headachy, groggy, no energy, no focus, making it through your day with a pot of coffee, sodas, energy drinks and going through the motions. You feel like crap all the time and do nothing but look forward to taking a nap or going to bed.

I used to live for coffee all day long.
Ibuprofen was my best friend.
I couldn’t get up out of bed without hurting.
My feet and body would take hours to start “working” with some kind of normalcy.
A headache was just a given.
I had no energy.
If I wasn’t working, I was sitting on the couch or laying in the bed.
I was always in a bad mood.
Irritable.
Depressed.
Moody.
Always asking myself “What is wrong with me?”
Or telling myself “You’re just getting older, it’s your job, it’s the kids, this is just a normal part of getting older.” It’s not.
It’s not normal.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
I am proof.

Do I still get tired?
Yes
Do I still have not so great days?
Of course

But those moments are now far and in between and not my daily life anymore. For that I am thankful. .

Why Wouldn’t You?

Seriously!
How could you not?
If something has really
Made a difference for you,
How could you not want to help
someone make a difference for themselves?
That’s why I continue to share.
That’s why I continue to post.
Someone out there somewhere is struggling.
Struggling with the same things I struggled with for so long.
Someone out there is tired all the time.
Stuck on the same corner of the couch.
Someone out there hurts too much.
Someone has headaches all day every day.
Someone needs more energy.
Someone out there needs the same help I did.
Someone out there needs to find what I found.
The same nudge.
The same push.

This was me.

Not anymore.

Never going back to that.

Ever.

One Reason

This is just one reason I need
My “mom/grandma juice”
My “energy in a glass”
My “gut balancing trio”
My “there is no way I could have done this the way I was feeling 2 years ago magic drink”

I gotta keep up. Wake up. Stay up and keep moving cuz she isn’t slowing down any time soon. How could I not wanna get healthy for her?

You would think that your own children would be motivation enough, but for me that wasn’t the case. You get so caught up in the every day life and go through the motions, all while telling yourself it’s normal to feel bad all the time, tired all the time, hurt all the time, headaches all the time…but it’s not.

Most people have no idea how good they are supposed to feel. I know I didn’t.

When Life Takes Over

Ahhhhhh yes…life. It’s a wonderful, funny, frustrating, lovely, exciting, beautiful, infuriating thing. It can take over without you even being aware of what is happening, and before you know it, you are stuck in a stupid routine you didn’t even want in the first place.

How many times have you set out to do something. You started doing it and then things get all flustered and hectic and that “thing” just kinda slips away. It is something you really want to do, everyday, for you. To keep your sanity, to keep a small piece of you in play…but then life takes over and suddenly you are doing everything for everyone else, again. Why do our mom brains, wife brains, work brains allow us to forget our me brains?

Structure doesn’t work well for me. I have tried. Same things, same time everyday and it just doesn’t work. I will get more stressed out trying to do that than just letting things play out. My work schedule isn’t the same on a day to day or even a week to week basis. Therefore, I have to adjust. My family has to adjust. Sometimes it just feels like it is chaotic all the time.

Rarely, if ever, do I have downtime. My downtime consists of laundry, picking up, fixing dinner, etc. On occasion, I can sit down with my crochet, sit here and write something like this or just sit and do nothing. I thoroughly enjoy the crochet, writing and nothing. But! When I do that and finally decide to do laundry, I find 4 loads in the washer, not washed, that someone just wanted to get off the floor. Why would someone else actually want to do a load??

I understand that when you become a wife, mom, grandma, and work outside the home there are certain things you sign up for. I get it. However, why do we let those things always override ourselves? The age old question…

Soooooooo. Back to my laundry and picking up before I have to go to work and pull a very, extremely busy late shift 😒🤷‍♀️

What’s Your Path?

What path are you on today? Sometimes we are all ready, set, go on a certain one…then life happens and we have to readjust, adapt, maybe even change our way of thinking. That’s ok…there is always a reason for everything and even though we may not know what that reason is, we have to trust ourselves and our intuitions to help lead us the right way. If you find you end up in the wrong spot, make a new path. .
