Man oh man. Even though I’ve been doing so good with blogging daily, I’m glad I took the last few days to really just step back.
Okay, so I was actually just way too tired because of my puppy and the Disney trip I took yesterday. But the break came at a much needed time.
Since I’ve been going on and on about my puppy and some of my struggles, I realized that I haven’t really shared my experience thus far.
Tomorrow is the marker of the first full week with Pepper and am I exhausted. I normally try not to nap but this week naps were my saving grace. The past few mornings I’ve been waking up with my eyes burning and feeling so stiff since I’ve been sleeping on the couch.
Yesterday was a much needed break from worrying about the little one. I’ve spent my whole week stressed about the fact that I got a puppy and stuck in my thoughts questioning myself.
But yesterday made me realize how much I do love my dog. In just a short week, I’m not mad at myself for getting him but I’m excited for him to be able to explore the world.
Imagining the future is a good way to keep in mind the things that we want for ourselves. It’s hard to keep sight of it when we are not doing the things that we had hoped we were.
Truth is I don’t have any advice of how to stay focused on the goal at hand. It takes a lot of mental energy for me to just remember that this stage is only temporary. It’s something I’m always aware of.
Keeping faith isn’t easy. Giving up isn’t any easier. And that’s what I keep reminding myself on the long journey towards my future.
