Congratulate yourself today - you didn't give up!

Already the post title sounds trite, I know, but it is really what I want to say.

You did it! You didn't give in to the stress, the worries, the anxiety about the known and the unknown that lie ahead for you and your family, and the to-do lists, and the unending needs of those you provide for, and the fact that the long and winding road looks really long sometimes. You didn't decide that it was too much. You didn't let negative thoughts and self doubt sink your boat. You didn't feel the weight of the burdens you carry and decide to put them down. You kept going. You did your many, many jobs, and you went looking on the internet for help and inspiration and ideas from people who get it. You deserve to feel good about that. I think you should feel good about being you today.

Brought to you from a gloomy person trying to claw her way out of the abyss, who today, sees joy ahead, and hopes you do too.


  1. You are so right. Feel good about being you today! Coming to you from Love That Max today. Glad I found your encouraging words.

  2. Some days it is hard to see beyond the stress, anxiety and worries and notice the good things; thank you for reminding me to not let these things get me down.

  3. Discovered this via the Love That Max link-up and it couldn't have come at a better time. Really needed to see this.
