i really wanted to be able to go. i need this. someone make it so. someone FIX IT.
too often, i hang my happiness, or potential happiness, up onto this Thing, and if the Thing doesn’t happen, or doesn’t happen the way I want it to, somehow the potential for happiness is gone.
that sounds so stupid, doesn’t it?
because the Things are so small, yet I give them so much weight. capital Ts and all.
Life isn’t perfect.
Life is messy.
It’s okay that I am not perfect.
Perfection is boring.
Perfection doesn’t exist.
I’m going to be fine.
I am fine.
I am enough.
I have everything I need.
i have all these great mantras and i can go through them until i’m blue in the face, but they still don’t take away the….the what? disappointment? anger? hurt? shame?
all of the above?
this makes me feel like i am five years old, unable to tolerate such feelings so that they come pouring out of me as behaviors – physical manifestations of my nebulous emotions.
in other words – they become real.
letting go is super hard. processing this is hard.
someone teach me how.
someone please FIX IT.
Hey everyone amazing news we actually closed on a house last week can you believe it we’re HOMEOWNERS
and not a moment too soon.
cuz immediately following getting our keys we went to the Oregon coast for the weekend to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and I can’t believe this year has gone by so freaking fast omg but the decision to go to the beach/coast was an amazing one because I am DYING IN THIS HEAT and we have to wait before we can get help to move into the new AIR CONDITIONED house which means this baby had better STAY PUT so I can labor in the house not only does it have AC, but it also has a soaking tub and a shower WITH SEATS it’s like it was made for pregnant ladies
fast forward to now where we’re moving small things everyday and waiting for the big move on Saturday and omg it’s HOT and I feel crappy that I can’t physically help pack and I have zero energy and maybe I’ll just put a few books in this box but oh I can’t do too much because what if I trigger the labor to start NOT BEFORE SATURDAY
maybe I should sit down I AM NOT MOODY SHUT THE FUCK UP
my hips hurt and I am hungry again
I am so BLESSED and I can’t believe everything is falling into place right in the nick of time and I am SO EXCITED and I still can’t believe that I am going to have a little human soon and a house this kinda makes me a real grown up now and oh crap now I’m crying
that seems to happen more often these days
my feet are swelling up again maybe I should sit down and eat something WHERE IS MY FAVORITE MUG is it packed already WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO MY LIFE
no labor til after Saturday Little Duck you stay in there til after Saturday
time for a nap.
