Do you ever have one of those days where you just CAN’T get happy? I mean, It’s not like my life is awful. I have SO much to smile and be happy about. But even so, sometimes it’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Between working full time, going to graduate school full time, homework, and a photography business it’s hard to keep my sanity.
(I don’t know how people go back to school when they have kids, seriously!— Whole new level of respect for them!)
I want things in my life to fall in place and they just aren’t. No matter what path I choose, something goes wrong. It makes me feel like it’s my fault. Like there’s something wrong with me.
I tend to overthink mostly everything. (I need to work very hard on changing that about myself.) But when I step back and look at the BIG picture of life, how lucky I am to even be living, how lucky I am to have a laptop and a cell phone to use whenever I please, how lucky I am to have an entire family that loves me– I remember a line from one of my favorite songs ever, Simple Man.
“Troubles will come, and they will pass…”
Although life isn’t exactly comfortable or easy for me right NOW doesn’t mean that it won’t be next week, or next month, or even next year.
I just need to be patient and remember I get the privilege of waking up every morning to work towards a future goal.
