it stays in my head even when i’m away from it

Posted: May 24, 2014 by Rachel

 

today was tough in an intrinsic kind of way

meaning: i brought it all on myself.

this habit i have of being consumed by my thoughts

is so, so bad for meĀ in so many ways.

 

i used to love fridays

before becoming a mother.

now, especially being a stay at home mom,

all the days just blend together.

friday has lost its luster.

it’s just

any other day, now.

 

i have one hour to improve my mood

to shrug off the day (so far)

before putting on a smiling face

and meeting friends for dinner

 

so i came here, to this space,

hoping to find the answers.

 

…..

 

just as i expected.

 

 

happy friday, anyways.

 

xo,

rdg

    I struggle with this every single day, and it truly feels like torture, sometimes.

    this gets me too rachel, maybe it's a bit of solace that we all feel it sometimes! I too mourn the loss of a "real" friday
