Sometimes, life is hard, and that’s okay.
It can look like it’s a piece of cake through the computer screen, but you don’t know the whole story.
Life throws things at you all the time.
Some days dishes don’t get done.
Some days, blog posts aren’t done until that night.
Many days, the laundry stays piled up.
Food gets forgotten at the grocery store.
Lunches are thrown together.
Weekends are packed.
The house isn’t cleaned every single day.
We come home exhausted and sometimes lay on the couch instead of doing anything on the to do list.
Yep, that’s life! You know what? It’s ok. We still manage. We still have food to eat. We still have a house that covers us. Benson is fed, we are fed, and we’re happy! It’s easy to feel overwhelmed, though, with everything we have to do every single day. Right now, that’s exactly how I feel with laundry, grocery shopping, and cleaning, to name a few, but it’s ok. We survive, and make the most of it. It’s hard to keep up with a full time job (even though I’m subbing, it’s still the same as if I was full time), blogging (which can be almost a full time job!), staying up to date with social media, keeping in contact with family, working out, and everything else. But you know what? Life doesn’t end just because we didn’t eat the healthiest lunch, or finish our to do lists. It goes on, and we need to make the most of it.
What is something that has been neglected from you lately?
How do you balance it all?
Thanks, Amanda, for letting me think out loud today!
