Tired. (Five Minute Friday)
Tired seems to have become my new norm.
I sometimes find myself tired of being a single mom.
I’m tired of the physical, mental, and emotional demands I encounter.
I’m tired when there is 1 more stop, 1 more errand to run.
I’m tired of wanting to change, and yet remaining the same.
When I find myself drifting down a “tired” tunnel, I must create a bypass.
my thoughts of self-doubt, worry, and “What ifs.”
I park my thoughts of self-doubt and worry.
Parking requires effort and does not come as easily as I’d like it to.
I park in a space designated for “Needs Prayer.”
I focus on my blessings, not my strife.
Yes, I’m a single mom physically, but thankfully I have support emotionally and mentally to get through those rougher days.
Yes, I’m a kid-Uber, but that means we busy living, busy seeing, and busy experiencing.
So, when that tired cloud creeps in attempting to overshadow my energy and good vibes, I grab an umbrella of gratitude, park my thoughts in a space of prayer and rest.
