4 HUGS, 2 children, 2 adults (1 husband, 1 Mail Carrier)
Sometimes I just want to scream, “Get out of my way!” but then I realize how fruitless that would be when the person I am screaming at is me. I sabotage my own happiness. It’s madness. Why would someone willingly do that to themselves? Yet I find myself doing it time and again. Today was one of those days when I just couldn’t get out of my own way. I attempted all my tried and true measures, playing with the kids, walking the dogs in the sunshine, reading positive blogs, even reading my entire new copy of O magazine. Yet, happiness was elusive. (as it has been on and off for a few days now)
Fortunately I have an amazing hubby who allowed me to take an almost 2 hour bath when he got home from work. He could see that I needed it. It was just what I needed to recharge. I contemplated, reflected and most importantly surrendered to the foul mood. It is what it is. It gets the best of us. I expect that tomorrow will come and I will be renewed and joyful once again. In the meantime, this early Valentine helped thanks to my creative, loving stepdad.
Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
