Hey-O…it’s Monday! And since I could use ALL THE COFFEE , I thought we’d have ourselves a little Monday morning coffee date. So…grab a cup and hang out while we talk about all the things!
If we were having coffee this morning I’d tell you that my kids are officially on the fidget spinner bandwagon. If you’ve never heard of these things, count yourself blessed. It’s the $6 toy from hell. Maybe it’s not that bad. But they are bad enough that there was no way I was spending money on them. And bad enough that I’ve banned the kids from taking them anywhere. That being said, it does seem to help Colin calm down when he’s upset. So that’s a win.
My Thursday night was epic. EPIC. After years of being on the top of my “must see” list, I finally got to see Eric Church in concert. Guys. GUYS! It was the best concert I’ve ever been to. The man played for 3.5 hours with only like a 10-15 minute intermission. Just him and his band. No opener, just Church. And he nailed it.
It was just an amazing night and I will definitely see him in concert again. Annnd try to actually meet the man. Because he’s that good. If you have the chance to see Eric Church in concert…do it.
In other news, I’ve been doing a pretty good job of beating myself up and I have got to find a way to move past it. The thing is, I just never feel like I’m enough. And it’s really easy for me to get stuck in that space. I feel like negativity is easy to get sucked into and really hard to break free from. I’m trying but for every step forward, I feel like I go 10 steps back. It’s frustrating and infuriating and I really don’t know how to break that cycle.
And I keep getting told to just think positively. And I have. I have tried that. Every day, I try that. And it works for a good 20 minutes until it doesn’t. It just seems like this is where I’m at in life right now. And I’m not OK with it. So I just keep working, little by little every day, to push past this stage of life.
Just know that if you’re where I’m at…you’re not alone. And I know it feels like nothing is going right and that you are failing at life. But I promise you, you’re not. And you just have to find a way to remind yourself of that. For me, I look at my kids and see them light up when I walk in the door. And that has to mean I’m doing something right.
