Honestly, this is just to say that I posted something and to follow through with my goal. Here on my blog I will always be transparent and speak MY truth. I’m not here to pretend that I have it all together or that life doesn’t hit me. I’m not here to compete at all. I’m simply here to speak MY truth, MY perspective. I’m not in the business to lie, sugar coat, or prove anything to anyone. I’m human!
I am mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually exhausted. I feel drained. I think I am mentally drained the most. I feel like my mind has been through it all this week. It went through so many highs and lows that I cant seem to get it under control.
Between work, being a mom, taking care of home (With taking care of home comes alot), relationship, bills, my mental, starting, growing, and building 2 businesses, maintaining my blog and everything else that I have going on, it’s so much to name. I AM TIRED!
I feel like I just don’t even want to think about anything. Wishful thinking huh? Yeah I know. I get off work sometimes and come home with the intent to spend time with my boys, eat dinner, shower and get in bed by 8pm to be up again at 4am. I plan this but it never happens.
This week I find myself upset and crying out of nowhere sometimes. What makes it bad is that sometimes I cant even explain what is wrong. Or I don’t even know what is wrong.
I know that this is just a phase and I will snap out of it. I always do. Sometimes it last a day, other times it last days or longer. I always, always, always snap out of it and I come back stronger than before. I think life and all that it brings gets to you after awhile.
People ask me how I am able to keep pushing and never give up all while keeping a smile on my face and remaining positive. Besides the fact that people only know and see what I choose to put out, my response is usually something along the lines of. The storm won’t last forever, eventually the sun will shine again. Life isnt easy, but I must persevere because life is short and you only get one. So cry if you have to, punch something if you need to, but once you are done get your ass up and fight.
Sometimes I don’t know how I do it. It’s mostly my conversations with God throughout the day that keep me going. I constantly remind myself that I am never alone. I am human. I have my days just as everyone else does. Don’t judge me, because I’m not judging you.
If you are reading this, I hope that you are able to find peace in all of the chaos of the world and your lives. Remember that storms don’t last forever. The sun will shine again.
What do you do to get motivated again when you have reached your point of exhaustion and wanting to give?
I’ll leave you with a quote that I will reference very often from Rocky Balboa,
“Let me tell you something that you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is very mean and a nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You me or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t how hard you hit, it’s how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much can you take and keep moving forward? That’s how winning is done. Now if you know what you are worth, go out and get what you are worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not point fingers saying you ain’t where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that.”
As I always say, this is simply my perspective and the thoughts that are on my mind. I never expect for you to agree with me nor will I judge you for your opinion. I do not participate in negativity, drama and bashing another person. I welcome and enjoy conversation so please leave a comment and lets talk.
