Motivation & Inspiration

I am blessed.  And I forget it every single day.  I wake up in the morning dreading having to crawl out from the warmth of my bed and into the frigid tundra that is winter in Indiana for 4 months out of the year. I complain about the post-work crowd at the gym and how it takes 2x as long to get my workout done because of it. I curse God every time I hit a red light when I’m late to an event or even just to meet up with my boyfriend after work.  And then, I have moments like this, as I’m writing now, when I realize how petty all of those things are, and I feel ashamed for not feeling grateful – because there are mothers living no more than 5 miles from me worried about providing their kids’ next meal, and I’m here pissed at the world because Wal-Mart ran out of Soft Batch cookies.  Pathetic.

There are so many items in my closet right now that I truly wish I never would have wasted my money on.  I mean, I think I literally buy a new dress every time I go to a wedding, and the result is that now my friends have a great “store” to choose from.  My closet.  Because I was the idiot to buy all of them.  Oy vey.  At this point, there’s not much I can do about it except try to avoid those buys in the future, but heck, it still hurts sometimes to see all that wasted cash staring me in the face each morning when I’m picking out my outfit.

Confession:  Being a woman can SUCK sometimes.  Royally suck.  Like, “I want to flip my middle finger to the sky and yell curse words until I can’t breath anymore” suck.  We not only have to deal with raging hormones once a month (seriously, why am I mad that the dishwasher isn’t loaded correctly?), but it’s also pretty damn expensive.  Guys just have no idea how much bras, make-up, and getting your hair done costs (and if any fellas are reading this, let me tell you, it’s A LOT).  But on top of all those semi-superficial reasons, some of us also have another battle we’re fighting that men cannot comprehend – and it’s highly more difficult to overcome.
