Have you ever had any of those days where you just want to crawl into a ball and escape reality?
One of those days where every phone call you get seems to bring more and more bad news?
Where you are in utter disbelief that these terrible things are happening to your family?
Well, that was today for me.
I’m sorry for being so negative right now, it’s almost Friday, and yet I’m sitting here with my eyes stinging from crying and exhaustion, and I’m at the end of my rope.
Today has been a tough day.
I sat down to write a post about how excited I was for this weekend, but it was so fake. It was so forced. I don’t have it in me to act happy and upbeat right now, so I’m not going to.
What did I do to get through the day?
I tied up my shoelaces, left my phone at home, and hit the pavement for a run. I blasted all my “powersongs” and turned off any negative thoughts. I focused on my legs pushing me forward… carrying on.
I hugged Bobby. I hugged my handsome husband so tight and let him take care of me.
I went for a walk…. to the liquor store to get a bottle of wine that I’m about to uncork and enjoy immensely.
I wrote. First in my journal, and then on this dear little blog which I usually try to keep positive.
And of course, I bitched. I bitched a lot.
Tomorrow is a new day, and yes, all the issues that came along with today will still be there, but…. I will be prepared to face them.
For any of you out there going through something tough, just know that you are not alone. Do whatever you do. Help yourself through it. Be kind to yourself and have faith that things WILL GET BETTER.
“When things are bad, we take comfort in the thought that they could always get worse. And when they are, we find hope in the thought that things are so bad they have to get better.” – Malcolm S. Forbes
