I am going to take this summer to regain my health.
Emotional, physical, and everywhere in between.
I feel like lately I have been surviving, not living.
Just getting through everyday, and sure, there are moments that I deeply enjoy (my boys bring me this joy), but I feel like everyday is stress.
Racing around, figuring things out.
Where is the money going to come from?
When do I need to pick up the kids?
What else do I need to do at work?
The kids are sick.
Is my boss upset that I am missing so many days of work?
How will I pay for daycare next week?
The credit card is maxed out.
The bank account is in the negative.
Another kid is sick.
The house is a mess.
The laundry needs folded.
And over and over and over.
There is no peace.
And whenever I do have a moment to myself instead of doing something productive, I sit.
I watch mindless television, feeling unmotivated and lazy.
But I am done!
Life is what it is, struggles are a part of life.
And I can either take them for what they are, overcome, and live.
Or drown in them.
So I am turning over a new leaf.
I know it sounds strange but I think it starts with taking care of what I have.
Show a little pride of ownership.
In my home, in my body, and in my life.
I need to keep my house clean, keep up with the yard, watch what I put into my body, workout, read the Word, and engage in relationships that are positive and healthy.
I am excited about this summer.
I am excited to be healthy again.
