the rainy days…

I haven’t been feeling like myself lately. Not at all.

It’s been a struggle to do anything this past week – walk, drink coffee, keep my eyes open.

I won’t lie – I’ve been pretty down about it. “I should get my butt to yoga… I should be doing more than just walking 10,000 steps… I should go out and seize the day” etc, etc. You want to know the quickest way to NOT do something? Smother it with the word “should”.

Should = guilt = I didn’t make it to yoga so I might as well eat the entire pot of mac and cheese. Epic fail.

(Found this on Pinterest. If I had a vision board, this would be on it)

Why admit all of this? My only intention is to document my humanity. In this social media dominated culture, we are great at sharing the good, the pretty, and the perfect (read: stop instagramming your perfect life). That can make us forget that dips are part of what makes life rich. But they are inevitable. And they are necessary.

So be kind to yourself, especially on the rainy days.

Happy Mama’s Day.
