I’ve been posting less often the last week and a half. I’ve really just been laying low, relaxing and focusing on enjoying my last month. It has been B.L.I.S.S.
Today however, is off to a ROUGH start.
Patience are wearing thin.
Buttons are being pushed.
As I type this Ezekiel is screaming in his crib, protesting sleep, after 1 hour of screaming and yelling and throwing fits before nap time. He’s even refusing to nurse in an attempt to not sleep.
If I know one thing it’s this: he.is.persistent.
If I know another thing it’s this: I.am.stubborn.
We’ll see who wins this battle.
I actually woke up this morning early to do some yoga, shower and enjoy a cup of coffee before Ezekiel woke up. I thought “this is brilliant, we are going to have such a great day.”
Don’t you hate when your expectations are thwarted, and worst of all it’s completely out of your control.
It’s mornings like this when I really need to stop, take a breath (or two or three or a thousand), bring myself back to a place where I can calmly deal with a screaming child while not inwardly losing my mind.
It’s days like this when I really need time to pray, read and reflect to keep my energy up and enjoy the moments when Ezekiel isn’t screaming in my face.
It’s days like this that I really need to practice gratitude.
Screaming or not, this miracle boy is everything and more that I ever dreamed of, and in every moment I will be grateful for his presence.
What are your challenges lately? How do you overcome them?
