Life has been throwing me for a loop lately. I've been fighting pretty heavily with depression, anxiety and just a basic feeling of being completely overwhelmed. Many times I have sat down to write a blog and express these feelings. Today I saw this on a blog I follow and I loved it. So today is just about taking stock.
Making: An obscene amount of to-do lists.
Cooking: Separate meals for Millie. Still.
Drinking: A lot more wine than I usually do.
Reading: "Beneath the Wide & Starry Sky"
Wanting: Peace, fun and time
Looking: Across the Salt Lake valley on this beautiful summer morning
Playing: Snowmonster with Millie
Wasting: Time on Facebook
Wishing: For strength
Missing: Biking and yoga
Enjoying: My lovely backyard
Waiting: For Seth's work schedule to feel easier.
Liking: Bright lipstick, gardening and bad TV
Wondering: Can I handle a second kid?
Loving: My daughter more than anything in the world
Hoping: I am a better mom than I give myself credit for
Marveling: At Millie.
Needing: A vacation away with Seth
Smelling: Office coffee
Wearing: Summer dresses and high heels
Following: The lives of everyone and comparing too much
Noticing: How exercise changes the way I feel in general
Knowing: Things are going to be just fine
Thinking: Too much. Always thinking
Giggling: At the brilliant things my daughter says
Feeling: Antsy and sad but hopeful
