Tired and Parked

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.

I’m tired.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

      Martha, Thank you for stopping by! I’ll ponder how to update my page to reflect my current circumstance. My husband is in the military and currently residing in a different state, so I am a single mom. 🙂 You are correct, sometimes being tired can feel like a big bubble. See you soon! XO – Lemon

    Love this! SO important! Thanks for sharing. Even when we no longer have little ones in our house full time, we can feel like this in our attempts to care for those around us.
