…I don’t know about you, but my kids seem to do the trick! I tend to carry a lot of stress in my shoulders and my back. I don’t have too many girlfriends and I don’t gossip or do anything of that nature, I tend to keep to myself. I am very social, love being around people, but lately I have been so focused on my stress, it has been hard to be “me”.
Today I took a moment and stepped back from everything going on and realized that I missed not having too much stress, that I missed being stress free. I had a few things going on these past few months that cause this stress, but I soon noticed that no matter what I do, the bills will still be there, the worry, the stress…it’s not going anywhere.
So, in stepping back today, I had an amazing day with the twins. Even stressed out, I could have an amazing day with them. They literally light up my life with their ways. I enjoy everything about them. My blog post today is just ramblings from yesterday. I enjoyed their laughter, their jumping up and down, my daughters tumbling (can’t wait for her tumbling/dance classes to start), my sons innocent smile and the way his eyes light up when he does smile, and my sons stutter (its amazingly cute). I enjoyed just being a mom today! We went swimming…correction, my kids went swimming. I dislike our new pool in our apartment community. They tore out a perfectly good one (9feet, I might add), to replace it with a 5 foot, freezing cold pool. They say it’s heated but its solar panel heated, meaning if it only gets to 70…then the pool is only at 60. It is the dumbest thing and the whole community hates it, except the UCCS students who now are residents there since UCCS master leased two buildings…oh, I digress.
So, back to being a mom…today was splendid and super amazing. There isn’t hardly ever anything to do in Colorado Springs, you always have to go up to Denver. However, I was reminded that the Territory Days are going on this weekend and I am taking the twins shortly. This is a huge vendor event, from all types of vendors, DIY, jewelry, candles, makeup, food (my fav) and musicians of all types, bands in different locations to wow each type of Coloradoan, and loads of just fun! I can’t wait to show you all some amazing pictures!
Today taught me a lot though…I can’t control what others do (even though I try…it is a Swift woman thing) and I can’t control the stress (a little though I can and I know it), what I can control is how I handle it. Something new I learned on my lovely journey!
