Keeping it Real {Sunday}

 I love Sundays {most of the time}.  For me, it's a day to spend with my family, attend church and just relax.  There ARE times I don't like Sunday's, like when I don't want to be around other people and feel like I have to talk to people. 

 I am having struggles with enjoying my life lately.  Sounds silly huh?  I have 3 beautiful children, a wonderful husband and I have so much to be thankful for.  I should be blissfully happy, right?  Well, not so much.  I am trying to remember this:

 Easier said than done, right?  I am REALLY trying to work on this.
I think what it really comes down to is this:  I have a low self-esteem.  I always have.  I don't know why.  I have never felt good enough or smart enough.  I am not saying this so you can feel sorry for me.  One of the reasons I started a blog was so I could express how I feel and to be real.  I am just sayin' what I am feeling.

Sometimes I wonder what I have to contribute to this life.  I don't have any GRAND talents or abilities.  
But, I am a MOM.  That counts for something, right?  My mother has had such a big impact on my life and I have always wanted to have that same kind of impact on my children. 

I don't mean for this to turn into a FEEL SORRY for ME post.  It's not like that.  I am just going through the road of life and happen to be hitting some roadblocks.  
Everyone does.  We just need to get through them and get back on the road. 

It's important to keep plugging along and to not give up.  Happiness is work.  It doesn't just come naturally {well, for some people, I think it does}.  

I hope this may have helped someone like it has helped me writing it down.  
Have a fabulous SUNDAY and BE HAPPY!

  1. Hey Karen,

    Your post couldn't have come at a better time for me. I guess I feel the same way you do. I work m-f 8-5 and I feel like the weekend is the ONLY time I have to catch up on housework, laundry, and everything else in between. I feel like I should be everywhere and be everything for all who need me. But some weekends I just want to blog, and maybe read a magazine. I feel like I should have it altogether, but we don't and that's ok. I know moms are so hard on themselves, when really we do so much for everyone around us. I just wanted to thank you for your post, I am glad I am not the only mommmy feeling this way. Thank you again for such a great blog <3

    Hope to see you around blogland!



Thank you so much for your comments...I love them!!
