As a mom, do you get into a funk every so often where something, you can’t figure out what it is, is bothering you and you just want to sulk? Well, that’s been me the past twenty-four hours. It is not that I am unhappy, or anxious about anything, but just in a lull; one that I am certain will be over and done with by the time I publish these thoughts.
I find myself in these odd moods every two or three months. And, then I snap out of them and often find the true reasoning to why I was grumpy to begin with. But, I do think it’s normal, and I don’t feel like it’s something that we should hide as mothers. We have so much on our plates, everyone’s different, and every mother has her own personal capacity when it comes to how much they take on. I have shared before about how I could feel crazy when I look at our home, our family life, how we’ve chosen to spend our days and the loud, constant, wild that surrounds us on a daily basis. But, right now in this moment, and forever, I would choose this life, this husband, these kids, over and over again.
So, if you’re a mama and have little struggles here and there and feel crazy, or confused, or maybe in a lull, don’t you worry because you’re perfectly normal. Sometimes writing things down, getting out a journal and pouring out your thoughts helps; I know for me it is a huge part of my routine. Or share with another mama friend because chances are she’s been through the same thing. Us girls are emotional creatures that need a little encouragement every now and then, and I hope you find that wherever you are today. xo
