Do you ever feel you may be trying too hard?
I have given up some things in the past couple months which I truly miss.
The first was my lunch dates with my husband.
Once or twice a week he would stop and we would have lunch. I’d get a chance to get a hug and a couple kisses. Even some time to talk. I decided Thursday I needed this time back. So he stopped by and we had a nice lunch together.
The other was my love for baking. Sometimes there nothing more I love to do than be in my kitchen whipping up something fabulous.
Thursday night I had flour all over me and on the floor. I could smell my fresh cinnamon rolls baking in the oven.
My mother always gets mad at me. She tells me I try too hard and then I fall flat on my face.
I agree with her.
But it is hard when you have had success and don’t want to go back.
So I think I will always keep trying to be me and let myself enjoy life.
I have to understand I must do it in moderation and keep myself grounded.
Today I look back and smile.
I feel like I picked up a couple of little pieces of me I left behind!
