I do believe this is the first post in awhile where I am focusing on the content and my life and feelings over providing pictures first then talking about the “outfit” or “good stuff” (I will get to that shortly) but first off I just want to admit that last week was just so emotional. Do you ever have weeks where there are good things but the smallest little bad stuff just creep in and consume your thoughts or actions and the good is no longer appeasing or a thought? That was my week last week and it was not fun.
I have been in prayer about it but I know a lot of what the root issue is and that is I feel like a failure. I have tears bunching up in the corners of my eyes as I type this. See about 4 years ago I lost my teaching job around this time and so I am having nightmares and just thoughts of feeling like I failed and it is causing me to carry it on into my parenting and daily life. I even had a mini panic attack thinking about it the other day where I blanked out and couldn’t let it go and my breathing changed. Then to make matters worse I just felt frustrated with blogging because I was comparing myself to other bloggers so I felt like a failure with my posts last week. Did I mention I felt like a failure in my daily life? This has all been in with comparing myself to parenting, in friendships, and in my walk with God. (plus it had been that time of the month so I was already an emotional rollercoaster).
By Friday my bad week ended on a good note though (Thank God)!
There is just a jumbo amount of things I could rant and vent on right now that I have been feeling but sometimes there isn’t even enough words to utter these out, but instead I have had to step back, pray and learn to just give some time to meditate on God’s word and truth. I will leave the conclusion to my bad week and heart issue with these scriptures and perhaps it will reach to some of you who might be hurting or feeling some failure in your life as it has helped me:
Jeremiah 17:14- “Heal me, O Lord and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.”
Psalm 147:3- “He heals the brokenhearted and binds their wounds.
How are you really feeling lately? Even if you don’t believe in God how are you feeling? How can we be in prayer for each other?
Now on to the outfit (taken in horrible bright light outside, sorry but I hated to ask the hubby to do it while we were running errands that day, as he was having a horrible day that day as well).
Since this was such a horrible day and time to shoot pictures I didn’t get very many nice ones, so I am sorry for that. I did however want to point out my new sweater cardigan worn here from The Mint Julep boutique that I got from winning a giveaway last year from Jessica of blessherheartyall.com blog (thanks J)! I have worn this cardigan like two times a week since getting it and it goes with everything. I have been dreaming since the late fall to have an oversized sweater/sweater cardigan so I was glad when this one was on sale at The Mint Julep boutique so I could snatch it up. This is such a cozy one too!
Thanks for reading today! I hope you can join me tomorrow for another “Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me” link up as I will feature my favorite 5 from last Tuesday.
