I promised myself that I would be real with these posts. Well, today I have been having a rough day! It’s not one big thing, but just a bunch of small things that turned into a big stress ball in my head. I have been feeling a range of emotions today because of it. Anger, irritation, sadness, loneliness just to name a few. Feel sorry for my kids! HAHA
I hope it just those pesky monthly hormones that will go away, but it got me sad to feel this way. I feel like it was a dig at my normal happy self, but I also know that even the happiest person has an off day! Today is my off day. Probably why my body decided a 4 hour nap was needed. I also feel frustrated that I can’t stop thinking about food today. I found myself standing in front of the fridge multiple times today despite the fact that I feel no hunger. Isn’t it crazy how long one can go without giving into something and then poof, it comes back out of the blue. Thankfully I haven’t done anything to hurt my diet. I am currently munching on some fresh raspberries.
What I have to tell myself it is this is just part of the ebb and flow of my journey and I have to accept it won’t always be an easy road even though it has seemed that way for quite a while now. What I also have to do it not let it derail me like I always did in the past.

I know this sounds mostly like rambling, but it just needed to let the emotions and the words out. I want to be real in my journey. There are cloudy days among the sunny days. I will break through the clouds and be triumphant.
What do you do on your cloudy days? What do you do to make yourself feel better?
I know tomorrow is a new day and I will be OK, but just tonight I could sure use a hug!
