I have the ability to talk through the emotions and see what is not real. I have the ability to see the imbalance and even the causes of that imbalance. I have the strength to persevere and the faith to continue swimming. I am a buoy and that buoy is not alone. I have a rope of love attaching me to so many other buoys, they are my friends and my family. Together no wave can take us down.
Between the high stress, high emotion weeks of losing my grandpa which transitioned into the weeks of new baby and no sleep there has been a lot to process. This morning I could not process it alone. And my gratitude soars for the help I received and the love I felt this morning.
I'm so grateful to witness the signs of a storm too big to weather alone. I'm grateful to have the skills of rational thought even when rational thought alone cannot cure the issue. I'm grateful for my husband taking time out this morning to remind me that I am important and my wellbeing is more important than the calendar. I'm grateful to my amazing cousin who reached out to help me see some light of truth and share some mom laughs with me over the growing pains. I'm grateful to know I can do this and even more grateful to know I have a great support system. I'm grateful for the reminder that I am not an island, I am a buoy, and it is ok to ask for help. I'm grateful to accept that this does not make me less, ultimately it makes me stronger.
What do you do when you are overwhelmed? Who do you reach out to or how do you talk yourself through it? Do you know that you are supported?
May today bless us with the courage to open our arms to help. May we admit our limitations and embrace support. May we know in our hearts that our request will be answered and we will grow stronger from our vulnerabilities. Have a beautiful day!
