A lot on my plate (not food).

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

I am having an emotionally draining week.

Started off the week with some major tension and drama at work. I sincerely hope that we can find a way to work through all of this because I truly don't want to have to start looking for a job elsewhere.

Then I get a call that yet another friend of mine is pregnant. To be honest, there is only one person I know right now who is pregnant and it truly doesn't bother me. It's not that I am not happy for these people, but it is really quite difficult on me and my husband given our situation. I am just mentally and emotionally tired from having to constantly put on a happy face all the time.

Add to all of that the general frustration and anxious feelings permeating everything at home with the poor job market and the impossibility of finding a job where we live. I truly don't want to have to move again, but I am beginning to really see that we may have no other options. This makes me so sad. I love where I live. It is the first time in my entire life where I finally feel like I truly belong somewhere and that I am honestly making a difference here in my community. It will break my heart to have to go.

    Strong sailors aren't made on smooth seas! Hang in there girly, this too shall pass!

    I hear you on the happy face thing. In the past 24 hours I have spent $300 on friends weddings & baby shower related things. I'm tired of putting on the happy face AND spending money for everything. And then sitting through showers where all of our money is opened and you have to fake happy like "Another diaper/onesie/dish set/kitchen appliance... yay." I think our society kind of makes it hard on us because we're EXPECTED to put on that show, you know? But you aren't alone!

    Sending you some good vibes!

    Hang in there my friend!!! Life can sometimes be cruel and hard. But getting through tough times is what makes us strong. To quote my favorite children's book, "I Like Me" by Nancy Carlson. "When I fall down, I pick myself up!" Remember the reason we fall down is to pick ourselves up!!!! And I'll offer a helping hand to you to grab onto and help you lift your spirits out of the dumps! A young terminal teenage cancer victim and his family that live in our area spent his last days passing out lemons to any and everyone they met with the message that when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. A few days later he died. He had followed this motto during his short life and lived his life to the fullest. This was the message he wanted to leave for others. Life is too short, make it sweet. emoticon
