essential life skills {7} enjoying life

A womans life is a hard one. For me at least. A woman is always doing and being torn in 100 different directions. We have to find the things that are most important to us and do those things well. The rest doesn’t matter so much.

I remind myself, one day my house will be clean. One day I will make good dinners every night. One day I will know my worth. One day dumb things won’t stress me out. What are your things? What do you remind yourself of? Cause, I know that this part of my life is only temporary and that this part is fleeting. I look forward to the change and also relish this part where my kids are little and smiley and sweet (in general). I am thankful for our good health and that we are still together after 10 years (9-ish married + 1-ish dating).

And She fights for her life
As she puts on her coat
And she fights for her life on the train
She looks at the rain
As it pours
And she fights for her life
As she goes in a store
With a thought she has caught
By a thread
She pays for the bread
And She goes…
Nobody knows

    Well, we don’t seem to be the most fertile people EVER so, instead of letting myself be miserably depressed over it, I tell myself, “I can’t plan my life around children I don’t have yet.” So I am trying to plan my life without them as it stands. Most of my friends don’t have houses yet, but they all have kids, so why not. Maybe we’ll squeeze in a trip or two. I don’t know. Yeah, being WOMAN is really hard. I think the standard of ‘perfect’ is daunting.

    I like to remind myself that one day I will have a bachelors degree. One day I wont work at 1-800 Contacts any more and will have an awesome career with my awesome bachelors degree. I also have to always remind myself that I’m doing a good job… with everything. I am really hard on myself and so I always have to tell myself that I’m doing really good at school, Church, at being a good wife, daughter, sister, friend. It gets hard to juggle everything, but I am doing the best that I can.
