Sometimes starting over is a must!
This week has been a trying week for me, and mentally I am worn out. I’ve spent the week reevaluating my life and thinking about all the times I say the word “NO.” I tell myself NO so often that it’s starting to get on my nerves.
The cause of my NO’s is due to my cheap ways. I prefer to see money coming in and staying in rather than leaving as soon as we get it. But as a result of all that saving, I’m left feeling bored and incomplete.
So I’m left asking myself, “Is saying no to travel worth sacrificing living a little and being happy?”
When our kids were little, we left the country a few times, and then the more significant they became, the more they were involved with sports. Three kids and four different sports equals a tired mom and dad. We became comfortable watching a movie at home on our off days and taking short road trips.
But now I’m BORED! I need to break out of this life I’m living and explore.
So I’m starting over! Today is a new day.
I’m done telling myself no
I’m done being so cheap
I’m done with not being completely happy
I’m done watching life pass me by
I’m done saying no to my husband, that’s always ready to do something
I’m done being bored with me
So I’m starting over!
I feel like Mary Tyler Moore when she did her iconic twirl beside the Nicollet mall in Minneapolis and tossed her blue knit beret into the air. Her beaming soul-snatching smile will forever be etched in my brain. And I want to feel that joy as much as possible, but I have to get out of my way and make it happen.
Move Bella get out the way
We’re starting over today!
