1. Wow – thanks so much for sharing. This post is so powerful, I’m sure it will give strength to everybody who finds your blog and I hope that this also gives you strength because you deserve it!

  2. Oh, girl, I was in that place just a few weeks ago. It will get better, and I love that you are looking at things positively. I hope you can take some time, even if it’s just a few minutes, just for you so that you can reflect and refocus. That’s what helped me. And that is so cute that Lilly and Audrey get ready with you and Tater goes off! My Dino (cat) and Jessie get ready with me, while my Chester stays in bed as long as possible.

  3. I love this “It’s not okay to STAY not okay.” So true! Sorry you’ve had a rough week. Balancing life with kids can be a hard one. I am not even sure if that is what you are struggling with, but I sure know it is what I struggle with a lot.

  4. Hang in there, Molly! I have had my share of blahs and I too love focusing on the little things. Such a blessing to see an old friend 🙂

    Oh man, I have been off my blogging game lately. Since going back to work, I just haven’t had the energy and I can’t get ahead enough on the weekends. Oh well, I am just gonna have to be okay with some crickets around the blog…

  5. I know how hard it is to push yourself into doing something that you are really not in the mood to do, but just remember that everything seems impossible, until it’s done!

    I hope you have a great weekend Molly! I’m tagging a few of my favorite bloggers to join my #SimplyWinterWishlist tag! I’d love for you to join! Just create your own list and mention that you are a part of the #SimplyWinterWishlist and send me a link to your blog on Twitter (@SimplySabrina) i’ll retweet your post 🙂 More details are on my blog, hope you join!

  6. Molly, I really needed to read this post today. I have just been in such a slump and have been such a grouch lately and it really is no fun. I do need to snap out of it. Some more prayer time wouldn’t hurt.

    I hope you enjoy your family filled weekend, sounds wonderful.

  7. This is a good strategy, as long as you don’t ignore you need to process through the okay. Don’t be too hard on yourself, as a new Mama there’s a lot going on behind the scenes in your mind, body and soul. Let it process. (sorry, my counseling degree kicks in sometimes 🙂

    In the meantime, I love the little moments strategy. I want to share one of mine – this keeps me going when I feel moments of despair, sadness and exhaustion.


  8. it is more than OK to feel not OK with all that you are doing right now 🙂 keeping another human alive while also trying to be a good wife, dog mom and working is no joke. its the little things that will start to make a difference like an unexpected shower or new sound or giggle. hang in there friend, maybe when things slow down we can have another playdate :)))

  9. Your week sounds like how I feel . . . Well, almost all the time.

    I often feel like the world moves way too fast for me, like I am running on a different clock than the rest of the world and mine is forever behind. It’s probably a factor of my flavor of Autism, but I am just naturally inclined to slow – paced work where I can take my time and get it right, which I don’t think anyone values anymore, as I am reminded of every time I read a job ad, because the words ‘fast paced’ or ‘multitasking’, things which I definitely do not want in my next job or in my life in general, appear in every one. Every time I go to work, I have to keep up a pace that is unsustainable for me, and I feel like I am letting my co – workers down every time I get behind, which happens nightly. I’ve also been clinically depressed most of my adult life, so I suppose I naturally see the glass as half empty if I don’t automatically assume the contents of the glass are poisonous. I often feel like the world just doesn’t have a place for me at all.

    It’s the reason I need to be reminded by people who are naturally positive, like Kristi and you and most of my more optimistic friends, that there are good things in life as well, and I do have a place in it, and a purpose, probably one that I just haven’t discovered yet (though I do feel I am in the right place at the right time most often when I am in front of my computer writing, so that probably has something to do with it), and that this too, shall pass. It’s just a matter of hanging on until it does.
