Day Seven: Even Superwoman Has Her Days… [The Self Love Project]

Today was one of the roughest days I’ve had in a long while.

It started early this morning and just when I thought everything was over, something else would happen.  Do you believe in the domino effect?  I experienced it first hand today.  After speaking with my Dad, he made the statement “Well you know what they say… when it rains…”
I finished with “it thunderstorms”.  I meant to say “it monsoons”…

Though I wore a smile all day long, and though I was placed in situations that were not ideal, and though I had to make decisions on spot and hear not so hot news, I stayed strong.  My smile didn’t waver.  I stayed strong in the face of adversity…

That is, until I got home.  Just like that, I broke.  I broke because … well… I don’t know exactly. Could it have been that I had kept it all inside?  Could it have been that the last words I uttered was the straw that broke the camel’s back?  Whatever the reason, warm tears fell on my cold cheeks.  The more I tried to stop them, the more they kept coming, so I just let them flow.  The comforting arms and words of my husband brought everything back into perspective and I found peace.  I reclaimed the day and was more motivated than ever to make things happen.  That stuff that happened earlier?  Done and done.  I still have more life to live, y’all!  Can’t dwell on the past or I’ll spoil my present.

To pamper myself, I indulged in a fashion magazine, ate some homemade pizza, and cozied on the couch with my favorite pups and boy 🙂 Ahhhh, I feel so much better!

A setback is just a set-up for something great!  Thank you, Lord, for never leaving my side.  If He can take care of the birds I know He can take care of me.  Excuse me while I prepare for my comeback…
*in my ratchetess voice* I ain’t got no worries!
Whether it be a few years back, yesterday or even just a couple hours ago, just remember: the past has no power over me!

    MAN. This was exactly what I needed to read. This past week has been epic fail after epic fail. We have been taught to “encourage yourself” but sometimes, just seeing somebody else making it through is encouragement enough. Thank you for sharing!
