there are days...

Follow my blog with Bloglovin


there are days my voice mailbox is full... but i have no energy to listen to them.

there are days i want to be a cooking wiz for my man... but then i remember how much i don't like cooking.

there are days i want to throw out all of my clothes and start new... but then i remind myself i have no money.

there are days i feel pretty... and some where i don't.

there are days i dream of being a mother... but then i selfishly remember all the things i want to do first.

there are days i feel lonely... so i call a good friend.

there are days i'm inspired... but i don't follow through.

there are days i don't want to pray... and those nights i don't sleep so well.

there are days that i don't want to get out of bed... so i don't, and that's okay too.

there are days i want to cry... so i cry, and i feel much better.

there are days where all i want to do is laugh... so i do, and those days are really good.

there are days i want to blog... but i have nothing to say.

there are days... and then there's today.

  7. I feel like you need a virtual hug! {{Hug}} I definitely feel you on the mother thing...I always thought I would have popped out a few by now, but I don't want to share my husband with anyone, including children, and I'm not ready to give up my freedom yet.

  16. I love this post! Lately, I've been feeling like throwing everything out and buying a whole new wardrobe but definitely can't! I always try to pull what I have out of my closet and see what new outfits I can make, that seems to help! Everyday is a refresh!

  38. I think we all have those days, but it's really tough being a blogger because there is so much pressure on us to put out really positive and happy vibes each day when really there is not one person on this planet that never has a bad day. Love your post.
