This week we hit a major landmark. It’s been a really tough, stressful school year in this house but we are officially halfway through the school year once we get to Friday. This is a reminder that everything does eventually pass. The important thing is not to get swept up in the tumultuous current and let it carry you so deep that you cannot escape. Believe me, I know because I am standing here soaking wet, barely able to catch my breath. The experience, this stress has changed me in ways I am not proud of. It has stirred up an ugly place that I don’t care to revisit anymore. New year. Fresh start and time to put the ugliness behind me now. Nothing is worth your sanity, your health or your peace of mind. The toughest part about being a mother is the inability to separate from our children. I don’t necessarily mean physically but rather mentally and emotionally. I take this job very seriously and how they turn out, what they become is a direct result of the kind of job I do. I know that is not entirely true but it’s hard to convince myself otherwise.
Happy Monday! Find something to be happy about and focus on that. It feels so much better to be happy and our thoughts do make a difference. Choose good ones.
