The dreaded anxiety did not follow me around too much today, which is an incredible Valentine’s Day gift!
This week has been very rough, anxiety wise. I was sitting between 8-10 on my measuring scale, which is incredibly uncomfortable. I had intense mood swings, and burst into tears for no reason. It was pretty rough.
There is no way I could have made it through this week without the support of my husband. He was loving and kind, even though I was ridiculously moody. I feel incredibly blessed!
I hope you all had a good week, and if you had a week like me, I hope you had someone to help you.
This week I really tried to focus on finding the positive moments within my day and mediating on them. I had some trouble on a few days (grumpy, overworked, and sleep deprived ones) but, overall, I realized I couldn’t have done it without the support of my husband. When I was being whiny and negative, he reminded me that I needed to find something good to anchor my mind on.
I have been thinking about how blessed I am to have found someone who fits me so perfectly. I didn’t find him until I was in my late 20s, and I wasn’t sure I was ever going to find my “one true love”. I actually wasn’t sure that exsisted outside of the movies and books. However, God proved me wrong, and unleaded my inner romantic. I am so happy that I have someone who challenges me to be the best I can be, and encourages me to find the good in every situation.
Again this year, I am back at my childhood home with my family. My husband couldn’t come in because he needed to stay and take care of his mom. It is difficult being here without him during Christmas, but over the last few days I have realized that I have been taking him for granted. I work with him, and live with him, I am just expect him to always be around. I think him about all the time and I want him to be with me!
It is true that absence makes the heart grow fonder!
I hope you all had a great weekend! I really enjoy Halloween because I have an excuse to play dress up! This year my husband and I went as the Walking Dead! I was a zombie and he was Daryl Dixon! We had a blast!
The redeye flight my husband and I went on tonight (or morning now) wasn’t too terrible. However it was difficult to sleep! I wiggled back and fourth, and back and forth! I couldn’t find a comfortable position and I kept getting hot! LOL! I have learned that I am a “sleep snob”!
Here is my husband as he woke up as we landed! I had fun waking him up!
I haven’t been posting a lot lately because my husband and I have been remodeling our garage! It has been a wonderful experience for us because it has really brought us together. In a marriage, you go through ups and downs and we had been in a period in which we seemed to be getting on each others nerves more often than not! LOL! Well since we have been working cohesively, as a team, to get the work done, we have reconnected! It has been wonderful. It is really interesting that when you work together to reach a common goal, the closer you become. This can be true in many other relationships. When we have our eyes on the same target, we shoot straight, together. 🙂 Check out the pictures from our project! It is still a work in progress, but I am really happy about what we have accomplished so far!
