After a long talk with my sister for much of the afternoon yesterday, a discussion with my husband last night, and talking to my mom this morning, I realize that there are some personal changes I need to make in order to stay true to my resolution of living for myself.
I have spent the last week and a half feeling overwhelmed which in turn sparked my depression to the Max. I pride myself in being the rock of my family. I feel it is my duty to put the needs of my kids, husband, and the rest of my family above my own. I have been overwhelmed because I took on the sole responsibility of planning Valentine’s gifts for my son’s kindergarten class, planning my son’s 3rd birthday party and my daughter’s first birthday party which are a couple weeks apart, and get everything finalized for my husband and my trip in 2 months. This has proven to be quite a lot for one person to handle and I have realized that I need to lean on others when things get to be too much.
On top of all this, I lost sight of why I started this blog to begin with. I did this for me. So I could live for myself. Much discussion has helped me get back on the right path. It’s not going to be easy. There are going to be many challenges and rough patches. There’s only one way to go and it’s forward. Here is my vow to not lose sight of my goals no matter how out of reach they may seem.
How do you stay on track with your short term and long term goals? What do you do to get through the rough patches?
