I try to always let my life be an open book (mostly) I’m not the kind of person who has a hard time getting personal or letting people in. (not that I spew everything out to everyone, but I like to be honest about my struggles and lessons learned).
That said, today I definitely woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I don’t know if it’s lack of sleep, stress, or what but this seems to be the story of my life lately. It seems that if I am not on guard constantly, my attitude tends to get bad fast. I am usually a very happy person in general- not that I haven’t been through tough times or had my seasons of depression because I have- but in general I have always been an optimistic person, so this bothers me and I want to know what is going on.
Yes, I have a young baby and emotions can be wild for the first year after pregnancy, but I think for me to blame it on that would be a cop-out, I think this has everything to do with my focus not being on God. As moms of young kids it is SO HARD to find time in the day to spend alone with the the Lord, and without that it’s so easy for our focus to go south really quick. I really need to make time every day no matter what and I am sharing this in case you are feeling the same way.
Last night I was reading a chapter Jesus Calling by Sarah Young and wanted to share what she wrote because it was so good for anyone in this stage of life.
I don’t know about you, but that really spoke to me.
