Letting It Go

The last few weeks have been a bit crazy for me. I have, at times, felt like I couldn't breathe or like I was drowning in all of the stuff I had going on. Last night while I was driving home, my mind was racing as I was thinking about all of the things on my to do list that were not done and my head began to pound.

I kept telling myself to calm down, stop stressing out, and the world would not stop just because I didn't finish everything I felt like I needed to. But you know what, I couldn't calm down. I was freakin' out and the twitching of my right eye was proof I was losin' it.

Just when I wanted to cry, a song started playing on the radio. I remembered loving this particular song and playing it to The Princess when she was still in my belly. I remember telling her that I knew life would be tough for her but this song expressed some of the things I wanted for her. And last night, in that moment as the song was playing, I decided to shut down the stress. I decided to focus on the things that are important and my to do list was not one of them! I decided to take a breath and let it go.

I'm not sure what you have going on in your life but if you're overwhelmed, stressed, or just need to take a minute to get yourself together - stop and listen to the lyrics of the song - I mean really listen.


  1. Dammit. As if I wasn't already emotional... LMAO!

  2. When my eyes start to twitch it's exactly when I know that I need to take a step back and reevaluate what's getting me stressed. Sometimes, it's not even worth the hassle.

    Hope you are doing better.

    Relax this weekend.

  3. What a beautiful thought. Thanks for sharing and I truly hope whatever stressors you have going on clear up. I always tell myself I can get through anything as long as I know it is just for a certian amount of time. "And this too shall pass". Keep on keeping on!

  4. i hope you are feeling better and you went home and danced with your daughter!!!
    sending hugs,
    hang in there!!!!!!!

  5. Beautiful reminder. Hope you're feeling less stressed now!

  6. LOVE that song. You're so right. I totally get it. I have had too many of those days the last year to count. I hope that you can slow down mama, and take a few deep breaths and just de-stress!!!! I know that is much easier said than done right? Thinking of you. Hope you're ok.
