Random Wednesday {Therapy Edition}

Oh happy Wednesday.

Let's talk about something for a second. Motivation.
Something I've been lacking and desperately trying to find lately. Sometimes things can just become so overwhelming I feel like I'm digging and digging, trying to find this motivation. Through being everyone else's therapist, I've realized something. I put way too much pressure on myself. Why do I put this pressure on myself? I really have no idea. I do know that the constant pressure has been weighing me down and making it hard to find that motivation. I'm tough on myself. In therapy I teach my clients how to work towards changing their thinking pattern. It's something I've been trying to work on, myself.
I'm constantly reminding myself that it's okay to mess up.
It's okay to forget things
It's okay to be selfish sometimes. 
It's okay to eat the extra chocolate.
It's okay to buy the shoes (or the purse, or the clothes) if it makes me feel a little better.
It's okay to say "NO"
It's okay to not know what my life will look like in six months.
Not having control over some things in my life makes me feel a little "crazy" sometimes. And that's okay, too. When I feel like this, I just envision my "happy place"...the beach!

So, I guess today's "random" took things in a little bit of a different direction than usual. It feels really, really good to get that all out there, though. So, thanks for bearing with me. I hope you all have a great Wednesday!

Linking up with Shanna for Random Wednesday...


  1. I actually really enjoyed this post because I've been doing a little self experimentation in the way I think and live, lately. A falling out with a good friend had me reassessing all of the relationships in my life and I went through a super funk a few weeks ago but am much happier now! New follower from the hop!

  2. I like your happy place :) I really need to be better about this, about accepting that some things are just okay sometimes. I'm so bad about beating myself up over stuff.

  3. I really love this. it IS okay to mess up sometimes and sometimes I forget it too

  4. It is absolutely ok!!! We all forget things, we all make mistakes - it's human nature :) And I have to learn to be more selfish sometimes too.

  5. Oy I have the worst time with this! i will say though that lately I have been really trying to focus on "me" time which is especially hard. Take a bath! Those always lift my spirits. ;)

  6. Just stumbled upon your blog and I am smitten! I would absolutely jump for joy if you came over and said hi! We could totally be friends- loved this post. Also, I sound like a stalker FREAK, but I promise I'm pretty normal. Side note: Sometimes I break promises. Ha! XO

  7. I can totally relate to this feeling! I know it well. I think it's great that you're working to remind yourself that it goes on and everything will be ok. Keep up the awesome :).

  8. I am constantly working on the "saying no". I tend to over commit on all things all the time...
    Thanks for sharing the giveaway and hope you are having a fantastic weekend!

  9. definitely relate to that - and I want to be in your happy place!
