Yet there was a silver lining to this ebb... I have wisdom and peace on my side. Wisdom and peace affords me the luxury of being calm enough to know I can "start again". And just like that I had a huge amount of solace placed on my heart. I had managed all these things before; now I needed desperately to love myself enough to hit the pause button and then when I am ready... Slowly start again. >> Read more of this WordPress exclusive at http://wp.me/p7qdv9-1YQ #MommyFab #EfabulousHB

In the middle of this summer I felt my creative spirit draining away. There wasn't just one catalyst. I was overwhelming myself with back to school, financial issues, fighting off the onset of a Sarcoidosis attack and not managing my stress. I was really in a "shhh storm" emotionally and mentally. 

It is as though my consciousness made an executive decision. Turn down your efforts on your blog and businesses. Focus on your health, your child and the fiscal well being of your home. 

And so I slowly warehoused my business ideas, blog ideas and extraneous goals in the storage facility of my mind. It was hard to admit, I needed a break. I needed to stop the circus and busy work of trying to make being a single working mom, working a full time job, trying to run 3 very small businesses and be some faux quirky Bohemian writer/ blogger work. ... Cause I was so mentally overwhelmed none of the shhhh was working. My brain was not working properly.

Yet there was a silver lining to this ebb... I have wisdom and peace on my side. Wisdom and peace affords me the luxury of being calm enough to know I can "start again". And just like that I had a huge amount of solace placed on my heart. I had managed all these things before; now I needed desperately to love myself enough to hit the pause button and then when I am ready... Slowly start again.

This is real life. Real life ebbs and then it flows. You have to love yourself enough to smile, laugh and dance in between - paying no mind to what you lose to stay sane until you flow again.

“The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around — and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness.”
~Daniell Koepke 

And that is because of Jesus Christ

#DivorcedMomChronicles  ... I used to believe this, whole heartedly. Now I too silence the lambs. I have simply loved the wrong people in my lifetime. I have loved them dearly. I have loved them completely. I have loved them to my own emotional undoing. No longer am I up for it. I'm no longer in the market to be hurt.  I value my love and compassion so much, I have resigned myself to keep it to myself. Really, only God and I truly value the beauty that my love and compassion brings. I'm totally okay with that. #100 #MommyFab   #EfabulousHB   #LoveYourSelfFirst
