Weekend highs to Monday lows…

By the title, I’m sure you can already relate to this post!
We are all living in a time when we all look forward to what the weekend brings for us. Mstly, because we either have a job, go to school, or just can’t have any fun unless it’s on one of those weekend days!
Well, today, I’m experiencing one of those times when my weekend was SO good, my Monday just isn’t comparing to it one bit.

I was able to spend some time out with my amazing husband Friday night, we had fun shopping and stuffing our faces at Sonic. I can’t forget the singing along to Kid Rock and Vanilla Ice on our way to pick up our youngest. On Saturday afternoon we had fun setting up my husband’s new office. Sunday, we had a great church service and fun time fellowshipping with my father in law and mother in law. We were all in happy spirits, the house was clean, I had help with the boys’ and dogs’ crazy shenanigans…..

 

Then Monday happened. We woke up all was well and I was determined to make it a disaster free day! Well, it wasn’t. What Monday is ever disaster free?

Nothing that I would normally consider disastrous really happened, it was just the small things that piled up and turned into one big melt down!

I seriously cried over the dog peeing on the floor for the millionth time a few minutes ago. That’s what tipped the bucket on the meltdown.

After I had that meltdown, I straightened myself up, pulled my shoulders back, practiced my breathing (if you’re apart of my facebook group, you’ll know what I mean by this on Day II of the #AGELmotivation challenge), I prayed and asked God to help me…. and then I opened up my laptop and just started typing to you guys!

I realize that it’s okay to have those bad moments. It’s okay to melt down… as long as I get back up from where I went down and keep on moving forward! Instead of just laying there on the floor and letting my boys wake up from their naps to me rolling around in tears, I chose to get up, straighten up, and share my experience to let you all know, you are not alone!

These Monday lows are NOT the worst thing in the world! They aren’t the end of the world! They will pass, just like everything else in life. Please, let’s not dwell on them. And let’s not have high expectations for our Mondays like we do our weekends. After getting pumped up over the weekend, I went into this week thinking, “Oh yeah, this week is going to be a doozy! I’m going to get so much done and be so progressive!”
HA! Day 1: I’m alive and my kids are alive…. let’s leave it at that.

Take one day at a time. Don’t gobble up a whole week just to make it to the weekend. You have to get through each day individually in order to make it to the next!

Thank y’all for taking the time to read this, I’d appreciate the prayers!

 

Dear Lord,

Please help each and every one of us get through this day according to your plan. Help us to look to you in our time of trouble and trials. You know what’s going on and what kind of things we’re each going through. There’s so much stress and pressure to be who we are, help us to rest in you and find comfort in you, Lord. Thank you for all that you do and all that you’ve given us. This life would be nothing without you, Lord.

For it’s in your name I pray, Lord.

Amen.

 
Sincerely,

virtuousmama

    We have to take one step at a time, one day at a time. I’m sure we all have had days like that.
