From one burnt out mother to…herself.

This content has been archived. It may no longer be relevant

OK, so I’m feeling the need for some Monday motivation again. In light of my last blog post about my grandfather’s passing, I am feeling a little very burnt out and overwhelmed (to be honest I already was feeling a little worn out before it happened). I need some inpiration to get me through the next few weeks. We were already feeling pretty busy and under the pump – throw in a loss and the need to suddenly pick everything up and head off on an interstate trip and it all gets a bit crazy! I have so much to do in very little time (or money), with very little energy and I need to somehow find a way to make it through without being committed to a mental institution! Hello, people. I have to take a toddler on a plane too. I tried wine yesterday, but I was a total light weight and had to stop after two (smallish) glasses. So that’s not gonna fix it. I know what you’re thinking. WHAT? WINE DOESN’T FIX EVERYTHING? STOP THE WORLD. I WANT TO GET OFF. Just hang in there, I’m here for you. Or was that just what I was thinking? Never mind. Here for you anyway.

Here goes:



OK, so I’m not entirely convinced this is true in ALL cases. Sometimes chaos is just something people are addicted to in their lives. However, in my particular case I would really like to believe this pretty, instagrammed bunch of words. I hope that all the things that I’ve been dealing with lately (not all of which are bloggable things) will bring me to a new clarity and peace in my life. I would like to learn something great about how to live my life better out of this and sometimes we have to deal with the crazy to get to the good.


I like to think that I am generally a pretty positive person. However, when I’m struggling with this, I like to count my blessings and remember what I am grateful for. I am grateful for my family. Grateful for my true friends. I am grateful for the beautiful memories I have of my grandfather. I am grateful for my blog readers who allow me to express myself when I so very much need to.




I want to do more of the “keep calm” part. Wish me luck.

While we’re on the subject of gratitude, I would like to let you know that my blog has now had over 20,000 hits. I am a small fish in the sea of bloggers so this makes me very grateful for all those who have visited my page. I now have over 100 Facebook likers, as well as 136 or so subscribers. You all make me very happy. Also, you are reading my 100th blog post right now.

Thanks! I hope you have a really great week. I’m going to try my darndest. If that’s not a word, I don’t care.
