I think we can all relate to those feelings. Being a busy mom sometimes doesn't allow for us to focus on ourselves and we get neglected, then when we aren't where we "think" we should be, we feel guilty, worthless. And to add to this...don't you think Satan wants us to feel those feelings of doubt about ourselves? Focusing on that keeps us from focusing on God. It is genius really. Just know that if you aren't all you want to be, or if you "drop the ball" sometimes, it is okay...I think you have the perfect remedy for that funk. Great song!
LeiShell- You are so right on! Thanks for the encouragement. I really appreciate it.
No(dot, since I don't know how to type your dots above the 'e)el...'tis far better to have had the ball in the air, then let someone else kick it around. You are a Wonder Woman! No worries, okay? I'm sure that there is some kind of grace you can give yourself, and after the jam session listening from Mumford & Sons? Release that guilt. Besides, I really want to meet you at Influence, and I don't want to have to shake your shoulders to get the funk out. :) (I just discovered your blog a few weeks ago, and you are most definitely one of my FAVES!) Hope it gets better.Barb F.(be forever lovely blog) p.s. i am shy if i don't know, so i may not have the nerve to say hi, but i think you rock! once i know you, you will ask me to please stop telling you my life story. :)
Barb, I don't think Noel is going to Influence, unless she is just landing to shock everyone's socks off. Which, you could, Noel.=) We would love to be shocked.=) Instead we are all just a bit bummed.I hope your candle puts you in a good mood. I was feel rather overwhelmed with my week, but I decided to just start doing what needs done, rather than stare at my list. Things are looking up. Don't go to the PO today-its closed.Happy Columbus day!=)
Oh Barb- What a love you are. Thank you so much for your kind, full of Grace and encouraging words. Truly, you just made my day so much better.AND Bernadette is right I am not going to influence. I so wish I was. I am however going to be at the PNW blogger meet up in Nov. Any chance you'll be there ladies?
There is no condemnation in Christ so hold those nasty thoughts captive and kick them out! Don't let them live rent free in your pretty little head anymore! Praying for you... it is hard sometimes to juggle all that we, women, juggle. Here's to a better afternoon and great tomorrow!
wouldn't it be awesome if we could trade heads? ya know, just for maybe a week of so? i would trade with you :)
Truely understand getting the funk out of my head! A good book and some rest help me. Also a little mini vacation out of the house, for the afternoon. Blessings!
Luckily these moments pass. I think you have the solution. Treat yourself to some small comforts, like a good book and a nice walk, and just wait until that sun is shining for you again. Feel better! :)
I love this post because I relate to it SO much!! I try so hard to smile and be positive, but some days...I tell my husband that I can't even stand myself, so I don't know how anyone else puts up with me!! Some days we just need extra prayers and grace! Hope you're feeling better, and I love "Balls UP" ;) Have a blessed day!!
Totally relate... the good thing is the ball usually always bounces back in place. :)
Oh! So sorry, for some reason I thought maybe you were going to Influence. I am super happy that you are going to a fun conference, and no, I'm not going (although I'd love to, one of my best friends lives in Portland, and I miss her dearly). I'm glad too, that your day is a little better. The good thing is, especially that I've appreciated about my mistakes is, that the world keeps turning, and we don't fall off thanks to Him! :) Bernadette, hopefully I can meet you at the conference, you are from the Mitten, yes? :)
Thanks for all the encouragement ladies. It really means so much to me to have your kind words here.
Oh and because of your kinds words, I'm feeling very much over the Bleh...
