Bring in Da Funk

So I'm going through a blogging funk.
I'm going through a mom funk.
A life funk.
Not really sure why.
Just feeling like I don't have a whole lot to say.
My life is a bit overwhelming right now.
Been throwing a lot of white flags lately.
I feel defeated.
The kids are winning.
My job is winning.
Lack of sleep is winning.
The scale is winning.
And, though I'm getting a lot accomplished,
I feel like I am losing every battle.
I feel inadequate.
I know this won't last too long.
I need to get outside more.
I need to call my friends more.
I need to ask my amazing husband on a date.
I need to go to the temple.
I just need to stop.
Stop thinking about all of the bad I see.
Stop worrying about things I can't control.
Stop comparing myself to others.
And remember that I love myself.
I am a good mom.
I am a good wife.
My family loves me.
My friends love me.
I am a daughter of God.
I am enough.

oh my gosh, me too girl. I've been sick and stressed and my house is disgusting and I have no energy to tackle anything. It's a battle for me to even get ready and put on makeup in the morning. Hopefully this funk will leave both of us soon. And hopefully we can both learn to not worry about things we can't control. Why is that so completely impossible?!?!

Feel better. If you need a friend phone call, feel free to dial my number.

I'm so sorry :( let's get together again soon, or just bring the girls over to play for an hour or so while you go get a massage... I'm being dead serious here!!

We all get in a funk sometimes. We are allowed to. I just eat chocolate and then do something just for me. Just know that I think you're pretty awesome. I wish you lived closer 'cause we'd hang out all the time. I'm not moving to Utah, though. I can't handle the snow. I'm done with that stuff. But you're welcome to visit me any day!

Yep. You are enough. I'm sorry you're feeling that way. I know it's a struggle to get out of that. But you will. Loves!

We all get in that funk sometimes and it bites! That's just our role as mothers and wives, we have a lot on our shoulders and we want to do it all! I'm sure you are great at both of them & that's all that matters!

I love your blog layout BTW, I think I'll have to use that one on mine!
