I am embarrassed. This is my first post in a couple of months. It is not for lack of trying. I have sat down down started typing but I could never find it in myself to actually finish. Shoot, finishing this post may be a small victory in itself.
A lot has been going on with me. Summer was plagued with a series of ups and downs (much like the temperatures for summer 2014). Have you ever felt like not all aspects in your life can be in sync at once? Through God's blessings I have had steady temp work since May. But at the same time I feel so bored to tears. I feel like with more money comes more bills. I am always struggling to stay ahead. This can't be life! Sometimes I crave quiet and stillness in my surrounding. My brain is on overdrive most of the time. And it is exhausting.
My love life has been a whirlwind in every direction. Sometimes really good sometimes really bad. It can be hard to walk away when you should. It is pretty difficult in admitting to yourself that no matter how great you think someone is and how awesome they think you are that it still may never be. After the storm has settled your life has been shaken and in the end you are alone. Again. What hurts is the most is when men think I am such an amazing person, yet I am not amazing enough that they see a future with me. I would probably rather you just tell me I am terrible then at least then I could hate you.
My spiritual journey has been at a pause. I still go to church. But where is my fire? Where is my follow through? Where is my passion? I am stagnant. I have not really grown. And perhaps my lack in devotion has contributed to my feelings of being overwhelmed.
I am a tired caretaker. I am scared about my mom's future. I see her gradually get worse. I see her needs expanding. And I question to myself over and over again if I can handle this? Am I prepared financially? Emotionally? At times I just feel like a terrible daughter. This roll reversal is a battle in patience and I think I am losing big time.
But you know what, I am going to do better. I have no choice. Life isn't easy, this I know first hand. But I have faced worst and I have gotten through it. I need to get back to being me, fabulous and all.
