I really don’t know where to go with this post. I thought I would be talking about fashion, but my heart has been so heavy, and to be honest, I just don’t know why. Well actually, I do. I’m just tired of it.
The last few days I have been working on so many deadlines and projects that I let the stress of it all and life get the best of me. The pressure of doing it all and being it all can get so overwhelming. Sunday night I got zero sleep, I tossed and turned all night. I’ve been working overtime and I feel like I am just one hot mess. Ever feel like that?
I don’t know if it’s a women thing, where we feel like we need to be there for everyone and do it all, that in the end, we put that stress on ourselves. You gotta hustle, hustle, hustle. Cook dinner, clean up, do laundry, work on your business, be there for your kids, be there for your husband and then you do it all over again the next day.
I hope I am making sense here, I have no idea where I am going with this… and I guess I just need to vent! Haha
No but seriously, I always feel like I can be transparent with you, and that although some may roll their eyes, I know someone can relate.
Jordan and I tried to implement a new schedule and I hate to say that we only talked about it, nothing has been done. Go figure!
The thing is, its moments like this when I push myself away from God, and the distractions of life get the best of me. When my problems in a way become bigger then God, or instead of me focusing on Jesus, I am focusing on being it all and doing it all for my family. In a way, I’m setting such an unrealistic standard for myself knowing that I can not do it all.
Today I want to encourage you (and myself really) through this madness we call life, to let go and let God. There isn’t anything too big, or too little for God. His word says to “cast all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”-1 Peter5:7. Let his strength carry you, for he is near and mighty.

Fabulous summertime combo! I’m loving your sunnies and blouse very much!
Thank you sweet girl!
Thanks! Needed to hear that today ?
You are so welcome Hanna!
I totally know what you mean. I have been stressed lately too…marriage, baby, teaching, keeping the house clean, keeping up with blog/social media, and feeling like I’m failing on every front. Loved reading this. Sometimes I have to give myself permission to step back.
Hannah, I know what you mean. It’s funny because you end up thinking you are the only one, but yet when you find out your not it makes you feel less crazy! Always here to chat and cry together if needed!
You need a rest
But the marvellous thing is that you CAN ease up. Don’t try to do it all… and then collapse! No-one is perfect, nor should strive to be. In fact I love my imperfect friends with all our quirks and idiosyncrasies. Look at your life and what you can change – even if it means cutting something out. It’s so refreshing to hear you sharing normal feelings in such an honest way… Give yourself a hug xx
Love this post ….I totally relate as a mom….this week has me in shambles and I just want to curl up somewhere and hide 🙁 Hope things are looking up for you soon and you can get back on track!
Aw man Erica, I am so sorry you have been having a bad week. I will be praying for you. I hope you find some time to rest and to take a breather mama! Sending you lots of love and hugs!!
