It's okay

(I saw this on someone else's blog today and loved the idea. There are some places I just need to remember that it really is okay....)

It's cry at the drop of a hat because one of your best friend's is moving away and the littlest things remind you of her.

It's okay....that our garage is a mess. Because it's just a garage.

It's have angry feelings and to feel them.

It's plan a day trip on Saturday without my son or my husband, because sometimes mama just needs some girl time.

It's okay....that I'm already listening to Christmas music.

It's hang on to the "skinny clothes" I still have.

It's struggle.

It's okay....that I miss my mom even though she's been gone for almost twelve years.

It's not be over it.

It's okay....that we're always scraping by. Because we always have everything we need.

It's okay....that I'm still in therapy and that I still need it.

It's google "how to do the shuffle" at 10:45 at night, and then try and practice it in your pajamas. Everybody's shufflin'....

It's press the snooze button too many times in the morning.

It's okay....that I'm still not yet the size that I want to be.

It's enjoy being a working mom even if things get a little hectic.

It's not feel "okay" all the time.


  1. I so, SO agree with the first one. I said goodbye to a very good friend of mine today, and even though she might be coming back in February, it's never easy.

  2. Superfantastic Lori sent me over cause of my most recent post on my own blog. I needed to hear this tonite. Maybe this week I'll post my own list. Thank you for sharing, we need to know we're not alone.
