Raise your glass too! (Clink!)

Monday, January 07, 2013

Here's to a new year. A new page. A new opportunity.

Each day can be viewed this way - a new moment to step into. As an anxiety ridden mom, I tend to hold to the worries of yesterday, bringing them into today and projecting them to tomorrow. I don't *like* doing that though. It never feels natural, normal or helpful - merely overwhelming.

I've been looking at some of my words from the last few months. 2012 was an extremely difficult year with many challenges. Some of those challenges have already reared their lovely heads in 2013. Some of them can stay where they were. Life is full of challenges and opportunities, and I *do* have a choice in how I approach them. It doesn't always feel like there's a choice, but there is.

My son was sick the week of Christmas. As a result, I was sick the week of New Years. Though I talked with the doctor on Thursday, I'll get to call again today. Too many issues came together last night to create a "violently ill" feeling, which is not one I can let continue. It's only 1:30, though. There's quite a bit of night left. This feels like it will lead to two, possibly three different appointments, which feels like a lot, but is a possibility. I'll know more by this afternoon, and will make the calls as I'm able after getting the kiddos off to school.

I will do what I can do. I will breathe. I will smile. I will find a way through. It's what my choice is this morning.

Thanks for reading.

    one step at a time...more than that and we wind up on our face. i do understand how overwhelming life can be; and fearing it will never end. just do the thing in front of you and trust you'll have courage and strength to do the next.
