Ever have that inner fight going on in your head – those two miniature versions of you on each shoulder yelling back and forth and you are just watching them like it is a television show…(PLEASE tell me you know what I am talking about!)
Here is the situation – I was going to write about some of my struggles (the things that keep me up at night) but then I realized that wasn’t very POSITIVE. Then I struggled with well this is supposed to be a REAL blog – the ups, the downs, the good and the bad. (Right now you are LEGIT getting a real life look at what happens in my head – scary RIGHT?!? HA!)
BUT then I realized that sometimes my STRUGGLE has the opportunity to be POSITIVE!! I didn’t make a list that would be EASY to check off, and I didn’t make it easy for a reason – I wanted to challenge myself! I want to be a better version of the person I was yesterday – today and tomorrow. That means I have to constantly WORK!
But sometimes it is a struggle…
Sometimes I am:
- Plain and simple – OVER IT!
AND then I remember my WHY (or in my case my multiple reasons WHY – to be revealed deeper in a much later blog!) I also remember (and am so GRATEFUL) for the times that friends and family have said – YOU HAVE THIS! Those three powerful words (much like the power of I LOVE YOU) make it a little easier to get up at 5am or push myself a little harder when I am ready to just give in or make me take that little bit more time on something that is IMPORTANT!
I am Human. I struggle with asking for HELP. I appreciate the kick in the butt (oh you have no idea how much I appreciate them). I REALLY appreciate you coming along on this journey with me!
So in closing here are some of my STRUGGLES lately that keep me up at night:
- Balance – Work/Life/School (will I ever NOT be tired!)
- Eating Healthy – IT IS HARD! Where do I find willpower? And how do I resist the urge for junk when I am TIRED (which as you can see is ALWAYS!)
- Guilt – In particular about the fact I have not volunteered this month nor have I set anything up regarding volunteering. (this one is weighing a bit heavy…)
AND there you have it!
Check in next week for the first month CHECK ( ✅ ) up on the list! 🙂
