It will be okay in the end. And if it’s not okay it’s not the end.
I enjoyed getting to create this beautiful quote for the lovely Ashdon. It is such a great reminder.
So many times in life we place expectations on ourselves. We think things like, “I’ll graduate high school with straight A’s, go to an esteemed university, get married by 22, graduate with the degree I love, have five beautiful and perfect kids, and die at an old age, happy as can be”. There is a very fine line between setting realistic and attainable goals, and having unrealistic expectations.
Even though I have mostly good days, there are the tough ones, as well. Like this month I have been so anxious/excited about Sunny coming that I literally haven’t slept! And I got pretty sick because of my lack of sleep! One morning I was still awake at 6:30 AM after Joe had left for work thinking to myself, “have I gone completely insane!?” Some days I think I have my life under control and others I feel so behind when it comes to preparing to have another baby. That’s when I started taking things off of my to-do list because at the end of the day, all that matters is that I stay healthy (and mentally stable!) for my babe.
In the end, everything ALWAYS works out the way it should, whether I know it or not. One of life’s greatest lessons that I’m learning on a regular basis is that I’m okay where I’m at. Everyone is! As I’ve kept this in mind, the world inside my head is more at peace. Life is meant for us to accept who we are, flaws and all. I’m trying to do this every day and let me tell ya, it isn’t always easy! I’m happy that I’m having these experiences at such a young age because they are really shaping me into the woman I want to become.
Life is good! I think this reminder was more for me than anyone else! 😉 Thanks for reading!
