Oh those days

You know those days. Where it feels like everything is crashing and you feel like you are suffocating. Nothing you do is right or you may feel like a complete failure.

Those are days where I have to take a step back and remember this:

Yes it may seem silly. But it’s important to acknowledge the little things you did during the day because THEY DO MATTER. Even if I am not leaving the house and I’m planning to paint all day, changing into a pair of jeans I feel is a cause for celebration because I was able to get out of bed that day and press forward.

It’s not always easy for me. There are days that I deeply struggle and the thought of being wrapped in my comforter with my dog next to me sounds like bliss. I have to be able to give myself incentives and goals so I can keep striving.

Also, I can’t afford to be down now. I’m a parent. I’m a wife. I’m a dog momma. I’m an artist. I’m a friend, sister, advocate and so much more. I can’t be down. There are too many things in this world that need me and I need in return.

So do you.

It’s hard. Keep finding those little things that make you smile. Keep striving for those moments that bring you peace.

You deserve so much.
