Do you ever just feel like you just can’t do everything? Who am I kidding? Everyone feels that! I got my daughter in and out of the carseat at least 13 times yesterday. It was the beginning of the month, which meant grocery shopping, but we have other big things coming up too and I had to get ready for them. Let me just tell you that I’m terribly exhausted and don’t ever want to sit in the car or run errands again!
Not to mention that it was just one of those days where I just felt selfish and tired and felt like I’m doing it all! I had a pity party yesterday when I went to bed…why am I the one who has to take all the recycling, vacuum the house, clean the bathrooms, plan the menu, do the shopping, cook the meals, clean the house, entertain the kids, get snacks for community group and all he does is sit at work on the computer all day?? This morning, I crashed. I had yelled at my kids and honestly felt as if I could sink into the floor in tears. I just couldn’t do it all. So, I finally stopped everything that I was trying to do and we went outside for a walk. What a difference that made.
I’m still stressed out, I’m still frustrated with things and I’m still crazy tired of doing. But my perspective is better and I feel as if I’m more centered than I was 24 hours ago.
I just read this tonight…how fitting to go to bed with these words:
Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. ~Psalm 55:22
