Okay I hate to be a downer here but I bet I’m not the only one who gets this feeling on the weekend. You know the feeling that it’s supposed to be perfect. And I spend a lot of time feeling like I wish I was doing something different. I wish I didn’t have to work and I could spend more time with my family. I wish I had more money so I could plan something super spectacular or at least get a babysitter and go on a date with my husband. I wish I could do this or that or whatever. Wishing.
Talk about not being present. Ugh.
So I wanted to put it out there today and be honest with you. That I suck at this. I’m trying so hard somedays but it seems for naught, and I HATE it.
I feel like part of the issue for me is the whole it will be better when or it would be better if mentality. I somehow have gotten the idea in my head that others are enjoying life more than me. If I’m super honest I bet a lot of people are enjoying life more than me but it’s not because they have everything or they are the best at anything in particular, it’s not that they plan the best vacations or have the greatest meal plans, no not at all. If there are people who are enjoying their weekend more than I am, which to be honest I certainly hope they are because I’m currently being a total crank ass, the ONLY reason they’re enjoying it more is because they are being PRESENT to what they’re doing adn where they are.
So it’s dinner time on Saturday and I’m choosing to be right here. I’m not going to dwell on earlier. I’m not worrying about tomorrow. It’s just not important. Sometimes I take some convincing and I’m guessing you may too. Sometimes it’s as simple as this for me, if what I’m currently doing is not working (the whole dreading and complaining piece) then I might as well try something else 😉
Happy Saturday friends, here’s hoping that we can be as present as possible and enjoy whatever gifts we can find in this moment!
