someone asked if i was a writer yesterday and i shrugged and said 'not really, i used to be'
days when life overwhelms i seem to have a harder time putting it into words than before. my sister and i love the saying 'may your life one day be as wonderful as you make it appear online'. i find myself walking the tightrope between posting only the great things and posting the not so great things and being a debbie downer.
i have had an overwhelming week, feeling stressed and confused about the future and our direction. letting my negativity take over is never a good idea and tends to end in a inwardly selfish spiral.
then i was at the pediatrician for well checks with annie and eve. they were well behaved and delightful. as the doctor (that i adore and have known since lily's first 1 week check up) left the room with a hug she said 'life is good, mama'. and i thought, it is. it really is.
