Do you ever feel like you just suck at life sometimes?


“Today? It is going to be okay. Take back your motherhood. It is a gift. Listen to the life-giver, NOT the liar.”

I was on Facebook today and saw a friend of mine post an article that had the above quote in it. I love it! The article is called “This is What Happens When Satan Steals Your Motherhood.” It couldn’t have come at a better time because I have been swimming in a puddle of tears since last week. Seriously. I don’t know what’s wrong with me either. I have been in a F-U-N-K! FUNNNNNK! It started out about a week ago when a pretty cool work opportunity came up for my blog and then went away almost as quickly as it came. I was pretty disappointed but usually I can shake off disappointment pretty fast cus it happens to us all but not this time. Then it has been one stupid thing after another. Mommy fails. Wife fails. Friend fails. Woman fails. Nothing bad. Nothing earth shattering. Just an all around feeling of I suck at this whole life thing and toss in a summer cold and there you have one delicious self pity cake! lol

crazy3I’m usually pretty positive about everything in life too (except maybe the mild form of road rage I have, but I digress) but man, it is like someone just pee pee’d in my Cheerios and I can’t shake it. For real. Do you ever just cry for no reason and then look around like what the haaaail is wrong with me? I got a random sweet text this morning and cried like a baby. After reading this article though, it kind of hit me over the head with some much needed perspective and I realized, I gotta get off this crazy1negative Nan crazy train and back to Chipper Cindy! My favorite saying has always been La Joie De Vivre but I have been having no joie in my vivre. Hmmmm…then I also thought, well if IIIII feel this way…some of you may be feeling this way too, right?

So there it is. Full honesty. And I am putting it in writing here, no more letting Satan steal my joy! In fact, you can suck it Satan! I am even gonna have a glass of wine tonight and toast his exit! 😉 And to get my mood change motivated, I am also sharing my favorite goofy faces with my girls because tomorrow is a new day!

    I think you stole my life because that is exactly how I feel….lol!! But truthfully there are major similarities!! I am a single mom who has been single since a divorce that was final in December 2006. I have barely dated (if it can even be classified as that) nor has there been anyone that I have felt a deep enough connection to even bother trying to build a relationship. I just took my 16 year old son to court ordered drug and alcohol rehabilitation yesterday and I can truthfully say that I feel like a failure at everything. It’s a complete lie because I have successes in my life but they feel so insignificant that it’s like they don’t matter. I know that it’s Satan. No doubt!! He is attacking us all with a vengeance!! My defenses are weak but I am still fighting to get back to my happy place! Thanks for acknowledging that even though you have a wonderful husband, fantastic friends and great kids…..that you feel just like me

  • We must be drinking the same water this week…seriously. Just know great things are brewing, even when you don’t know it. Keep on plugging chicadee. And call me when you’re crying next time. We can cry together. 🙂

    There are many things in our life that we are totally not in control of. You are a great person who loves life and you are allowed to let your guard down every once in a while. Don’t beat yourself up. This too shall pass!

  • I hate these days, luckily they are outweighed by those great days.
