Life is messy…


Hello friends! I am sorry I have not been posting as much as normal. My life has been quite busy the past few weeks. Two weeks from now is the big move and I have been knee deep in packing and getting things organized. I have been a bit overwhelmed and all my free time has been put towards packing up my house and moving what I can into the new house. I have a problem with wanting everything to be perfect. Boxes labeled, things matching, everything clean, no clutter. Something I need to let go of moving in with two little girls. I have thought a lot about this and how I can save myself the stress and anxiety over worrying about things being perfect. I saw a quote the other day that said “You can do anything but not everything.” This hit home with me and was exactly what I needed to hear. As busy as I have been with moving, work, the kids, the dogs, I need to remember to slow down and breathe. That everything does not need to be perfect and things will get done eventually. The house does not need to be in tiptop shape the moment I move in, things do not all have to be put away that day and having things a little messy once in a while is ok. I mean life is messy, right?

I like to pile a lot on my plate at once. Not only am I working a stressful full time job, trying to move, planning a wedding, taking care of kids, taking care of two bulldogs, making time for my fiancé and friends and starting a new workout class, I am also about to turn 40 in two weeks. March 31st, I will officially be part of the 40 club. Then the next morning I move into my new house with my favorite people. It sounds like a lot but if I did not have all this chaos going on at once, something would be wrong. So, now I just need to remember to take a deep breath and breathe, to not sweat the small stuff, to enjoy turning 40 with my friends and family, to enjoy the adventure of moving into my new home, to take time to say goodbye to my old home, to work out when I can, to keep pushing myself at work and to remember “You can do anything but not everything.” And that my friends is OK! Cheers!
