What a time, and way, to be reminded that it’s ok to not have all the answers and it’s ok to not know how things are going to end up.
What I do know, is we can give into fear and panic, or we can use this time to self reflect and reprioritize. We’re trying our best to choose the latter in our house.
What it comes down to is I refuse to let this fear circulating distract me from the good that is still happening. I still have so much to be grateful for and there is still so much joy to be had. I won’t let the negativity of others judging and panicking slow me down. I will not judge others for their choices, I don’t know the whole story. I won’t panic, I’m doing the best I can and that’s all I can do and I trust God will help with the rest.
So I’m going to make the most of my extra time with my kiddos. I’m also going to regularly find times to escape for a couple minutes and take care of myself. I’m going to help others when I can, if I can.
Is it going to be all sunshine and rainbows and my kids will get along perfectly and I’ll never be exhausted physically or mentally? No. It’s going to have its ups and downs but I’m here for the ride and I’m making the most of it. One day at a time.
