The past couple of days, I have felt like I have been in a funk. Like nothing was going right, and my self-worth was really low. Here is a short list of things that were on my mind/stressing me out/bringing me down...
  1. Working on a new project (yet to be named on the blog), and getting nowhere.
  2. Home DIY projects have been falling through.
  3. My house is not blog worthy. (This is what happens when you compare your house to other bloggers houses and all of their cute decorating/ideas. Who has time/money for this?)
  4. Self motivation to work out has been nonexistent.
  5. My close coworker, Suzie, retired. Without a replacement for her at the moment, I'm staying much busier (or more stressed, whichever). 
  6. My blog posts have been sparse at best. (I feel like I have no free time...)
I had been so caught up in everything that was worrying me and bringing me down I had lost sight of what really matters. After throwing myself a nightlong pity party, I sat down to watch an episode of NYMed on ABC. One of the stories was about a girl named Lyndsey who has cystic fibrosis. She is 26 years old, and she was waiting for a lung transplant. I had to stop watching by the time they got to her surgery day. It made me a wreck. What was I so worried and upset about again?

The next day, I read a devotional when I got to work. It was about Mary and Martha (Luke 10:38-42). I realized I need to worry less about the details and listen more. I need to slow down, be present in the moment, and realize that everything will work out the way it is supposed to. I need to be more like Mary and less like Martha.

Also, I bought a latte today. Lattes usually make bad days better. I hope you are having a good day, too!

  1. I am glad you pretty much learned the lesson you needed to all by is called maturity. I know you are a worthy person because of all the blogs out there, yours is one of about 25 I follow because of your happy and kind and fun spirit and I know this even tho I am a complete stranger. So carry on as they say!
