Amazing what getting good quality rest will do for you.🙌🏼 Amazing what getting too little, poor quality rest will do to you too.😴 .
This past week after getting back from Dallas, I was already tuckered out from busy days and less sleep (no naps for this pregnant mama🤪) than usual. Upon getting our boy back in our arms and catching up on all the kisses 💋we’ve been struggling this past week with any of us getting good quality sleep and any good amounts of it due to us battling his asthma—especially as it worsens when he’s laying down—it’s been one long and tiring week and it’s affecting me in more ways than one. Add into the mix overwhelming topics of planning for our FUTURE to include all things life insurance and the like can be mind boggling to someone like me who it just doesn’t always make total sense to can mean mind boggling. 🤯 Oh and, dreary rainy weather ALL week with no sun.😭☀️ Low energy, less motivation to workout, anxiety and worrisome flaring up, and foggy ness taking over mental clarity have been all things making up my week. A.k.a. Not very fun.🤦🏻♀️ .
But what has helped:: Daily prayer and leaning into God and His presence in my silent time with Him each day, taking a break in the middle of the day to meditate on my Rosary, moving my body somehow each day even if it just meant sometime stretching or a 10 minute core workout, getting in all the healthy nutrients to fuel myself so my immune system doesn’t turn against me, giving myself GRACE to not have all the energy to keep everything as spotless and tidy as my usual self does, and just being thankful as I lay my head down each night for all that God had provided us with. No matter what trials and suffering you may be enduring at the moment, there’s always, always, something to be thankful for.💫💖 ‘After your season of suffering, God in all His grace will restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.’ -1 Peter 5:10 🙏🏼☀️🌱 .
P.S. Pinky promise I’ll be in bed before 8:00 tonight.😏
