I have a confession; I do not have it all figured out.
Last week I received an email from a beautiful soul back east who told me that my blog has given her inspiration to continue on, even when times get rough because…I have it all figured out and she has the hope to figure it all out one day as well. While I am uber flattered I don’t want to lie. I am here to say, I do not have it all figured out. Blogging can be a funny thing, many people get to see snip-it’s of your life and based on how pretty your clothes are, how your hair is styled, they way you write, the things you do, etc. make your life looks so much more glamorous than it is. Now do I think my life is glamorous? Hardly but I love it all the same.
The year 2015 is already shaping up to teach me a whole slew of new life lessons. Learning how to be a mom, wife, career woman, and lastly this girl name Meghan has been a struggle, to say the least. Things have happened to me that have made me take a step back and wonder if I am in a movie. There is no way I should be old enough to deal with these things. With only being three months into the new year, friendships have been formed, been tested, and been strengthened. I have learned how to stand up for myself and be able to be proud of where I am in life.
If you stop and listen to the signs that life gives you along the way, then you will see that it is as easy as putting one foot in front of the other and hanging on for the climb.
I do not have anything figured out because life is always changing. In my mom world, I am currently trekking through this world called toddlerhood. Have you heard of it? It involves random screaming fits (I am sorry, you can not run with a fork in your hands), weird toddler songs about using the potty (who invents this stuff), picky eating (Zaba’s… we go every weekend because he wants tacoooo’s and wwwiccee) and the inability to just chillax once an awhile. In my career work, I am dealing with the stresses of hoping that I am achieving everything that I have set out to… Is my design still up to par, are people reading my writing, how in the world am I suppose to hire two new people for my team and train them and wait…what…what do you need (okay, I’m on it!!). My wife life… I love my husband, I swear, he gets the short end of the stick sometimes, but I need him 150% of the time. Lastly, this Meghan thing… Who is she? Isn’t she Logan’s Mom? The Marketing Manager? Wes’ Wife? Yeah, this one I am still working on. What fun is life if you don’t have it figured out?
Cheers to all of you who thought I had it all figured out and damn I just told you all I didn’t.
Here’s to one foot in front of the other.
