It’s been a long week. A mix of a lot of ‘to-do’s’, lack of sleep, only seeing my husband for 20 minutes every late night because he’s in his busy season for accounting, and grief for my dear brother. My tipping point was mid-week, feeling like I was working hard and doing the best that I could and going no where. I hate when my self-doubt, stress, struggle for control, and lack of trust and communication with the Lord gets the best of me in weeks like these. Those things I mentioned are tough. Really tough. And when I need Him the most. I am thankful for the women close to me in my life for reminding me they’re there, that God is there, and I’m not alone in the tough. Simple truths that we so often forget, don’t we. I’m also thankful for a piece of clarity yesterday – a nudge from God to keep going. Keep working hard. Keep being creative – photograph, edit, and compose this blog post. Continue to prep for this party. Keep going after it! It’s week two of this blog of mine, not year two. Oh, how my perfectionism loves to steer me away.
So, you know what? Forget you, perfectionism. It’s FRIDAY! It’s time to soak up that California sunshine we’ve been getting (it’s supposed to hit 70 this weekend! All of the emoji praise hands!), enjoy the blessing of two whole days off from the rise n’ grind routine and…… have a cocktail.
