The Days You Feel Like You Can’t

The number one greatest thing about my husband is… well, truthfully I could never choose just one.  But he is a great listener.  Which is really good because I talk a lot.  But he also gives pretty awesome advice.  For example:

“Nothing happens overnight.”

Everyone has a day or two (or a hundred) when things don’t go as planned.  That feeling of discouragement sinks in…

When you feel like you can’t…

…do things right

…be on time

…be pretty

…make a change

…learn math/science/how to set the sprinkler system

…remember anything to save your life

…get things done

…make a difference

…be good enough

When those hurdles seem insurmountable.

And sometimes those plans and dreams seem so far away from each other.

Eventually, and more than once, the moment comes when you realize that not everything in life is not directly under your control and that sometimes you have to do your best and let it be.

When that nagging voice in the back of your head is saying “You can’t, you can’t, you can’t, you can’t…”

That part of life where you’re just coming around the bend and don’t know what lays on the other side.

When things are chaotic and so fast paced you can barely catch your breath– and at the same time the days are long with waiting and wondering…

Get up.

Take courage.

Try again.

  1. Beautifully written, Meg! Life is filled with uncertainties–there’s only so much we can do; only so much we can plan for; only so much we can accomplish. All we’re asked to do is try. Sometimes we succeed; sometimes we fail, but I truly believe that all that matters is our intention. ❤

    Love you to pieces! I'm going to see you in a WEEK! xoxo ❤

  2. Perfect timing – i’m actually really satisfied about my life but i’ve been sleeping horrible this week and i feel terribly UGH today! Negative nancy!
    A good night’s sleep will solve that though 🙂

    Great post!
