I know it’s kinda late, but I just felt called to share this tonight, so here it is! This was me right before wedding dress shopping the other night. Yeah, I posted a cute picture with my bridesmaids after it was all done, but what you didn’t see was before. I could barely smile for this picture because I was so anxious and stressed and scared and I wanted to throw up.
I was seriously struggling. The past two weeks have been H A R D. It’s been a while since I’ve been in a funk, so I’m not even sure if that’s what this is, but guys, I have to share with you. Everything has been going wrong lately. Family members getting sick. Our car getting towed. Wedding plans not coming together. Work changes. Getting sick. Getting expensive hospital bills. Car problems. Stress on stress on stress. My anxiety habits are back (biting my cheeks and scratching my legs in my sleep)... The only thing that has been consistent for me is Arbonne, and that’s a blessing I could have never seen coming. But that’s NOT the point of this post.
This post is to remind you that life happens. Impact happens. It’s our job to prepare for it. Bad things DO happen to good people; to everyone. It’s up to us to be ready for it. I have been so caught up in my problems and stress lately, that I’ve ignored the good things right in front of me, but God has reminded and humbled me every single day. I’m not sure where I was going with this, but I just wanted to remind you that you’re not alone and it’s not always as easy as IG or FB makes it seem. I struggle and I fight every day. If you ever feel like you need to talk to someone, I am here! You’re not alone. You’re not the odd one out. I just wanted to say that. I hope you guys have a great night, and just know that you have it in you to be who you want to be and where you want to be! Goodnight friends 💕 - 55 seconds ago
