it’s time to break up….

oh not you and I, don’t worry ;)

It’s time for me to break up with a few things in my life….especially STRESS!!!!!

I am feeling completely OVERWHELMED at the moment and I feel a purge and cleanse is the only way to make it through it

The only problem is, I don’t know where to begin…. Do you ever feel completely overwhelmed and stressed out but have NO idea how to fix it? I often feel lost and like I am drowning in my own thoughts and emotions.
It doesn’t help that Christmas is only a couple weeks away…what? I added it up –  I have SIX days to get all my shopping done {days that I am not working and have *some* free time}. Ugh…where to even begin with that one!
so for anyone else out there feeling down, overwhelmed or tired….lets help lift each other up.

leave a comment with your favorite quote or saying that may lift our spirits

or maybe just make us smile…or be reminded we aren’t the only ones with a messy house, tons of laundry that needs to be done, dishes in the sink, unfinished crafts laying around, greasy hair….and nothing but diet coke in the fridge. Cause right now – that is TOTALLY me :-/

    “Everything happens for a reason”. Recently my boyfriend lost his job and it’s been stressing me out so much! I’ve had the worst headaches ever! There isn’t much I can do except be supportive and help to make our money last, which is really hard this time of year. This quote has been getting me through every day!

    6 days of shopping! One way to eliminate some stress…commit to shop less. The day I decided to make Christmas more about visiting with my family, cooking with them, going for walks, and enjoying our time together versus spending most of my free time shopping for presents that most everyone does not need was the day my holidays and my LIFE took a turn for the best! Remind yourself you don’t have to buy into the hype…I hope you have a beautiful holiday surrounded by people who love you.

    My Mom always says, “Sometimes you just have to walk out and shut the door behind you!” Making the decision to do ‘something’ is usually the first step to healing.

    “Everything is okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.” My favorite quote of all time. It has helped me get through soooo many hard days, lol! ♥

    First- remember just how special you are! Just like in the movie The Help- You is kind, You is smart, You is important.

    Second- Come home from work- Get some nice hot tea and then shop on-line tonight and relax!

    Third- It’s my birthday today! A few years ago I reached an age that I felt I could no longer lie and say I was younger. (I have quite a few 20-40 year old women in my life) So I told everyone I am 75 years old- so now….they tell me I look good for my age! Freeing! My 20 year old daughter gave me a Happy 75th card this year!

    Christmas can be so hard- there are so many expectations that we put onto our shoulders. When life is felt it was out of my control I tried to have everything else in my life that I could control “perfect”. Stop and enjoy what the season is about…How a baby changed everything! Let go and give some of the things- stress up to Jesus- It’s hard if you are a “Martha” type woman. Try to be a “Mary” (which can be equally as stressful! hahaha)

    My mom gave me an awesome wooden plaque that is hanging in my kitchen that says:

    “Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful.”

    Here’s a favorite quote! “Those who move forward with a happy spirit will find that things always work out.” – Gordon B. Hinckley I love how much there is to it with so few words. I’ve had to say this to myself a few times lately, as I too have been stressed out of my mind. My house has turned into a disaster area and all things cleaning have taken the back burner. All to get a few things done. And it just doesn’t seem to end! But if I remind myself of this quote I feel like everything is ok. And sometimes the house just has to be messy! I felt like I was reading my own words when I read this post. It’s nice to know that I’m not alone right now, however, I’m sorry that you’re going through the same feelings and emotions I am. It’s no fun at all! Thank goodness for Diet Coke and M&M’s!! :)
