Look at the stars…

I’ve been complaining too much my own liking lately. You see, I am usually a “cup full” kind of person. I am a big picture person I usually manage to put things back into perspective. But these past couple of weeks, I’ve et the little things bother me. Blame it on third trimester tiredness maybe…whatever the reason, that has to go because I am not one that will give up her a cup full that easily.

Yes, my ribs are starting to hurt as baby girl keeps on growing. But I am SO Lucky to have that baby girl inside of me. It’s such a gift. Yes, the house gets messy and out of control. But I am SO lucky to have a loving husband that cares for me, and these two wonderful little girls that are full of live and creativity. Yes, I wish I had more time to work on the blogs and the 1000 projects that are bubbling in my head. But I am so lucky to be doing something that I LOVE and that gives me the flexibility to see my kids grow and spend time with them.

What I need to do is take a breather, and remember how, things ARE good. The stars are shining so bright. And I can’t let a cloud or two make me forget that. Anything that you do when you start loosing perspective on things? 

PS: Don’t mind me while I play around with paper – I’ve been wanting to do more paper cutting since that one I made last year for hubby.

    When I loose perspective on things…well….easy one : I CALL YOU or WHATSAPP you, or skype you. All possible mens to reach you and fill up my empty cup 😉
    Love you my cup gone. Xoxo

      Thanks Ana! The thing is, I always know how lucky I am, but sometimes when tired and feeling overwhelmed, it’s harder to act like it – know what I mean?

  3. Aw yes! Things ARE good!! It’s such a good quality to be a “cup full” type of person and see the bigger picture, Audrey! But of course, we all lose perspective from time to time :) …when those feelings start happening, I tell myself that it’s all just one reaaally long slippery slope… Looking on the bright side of things is just so much more enjoyable and nurturing for our lives :) When I start to lose perspective, I usually center myself by bringing the focus inward and taking a moment to work things out in my head, and of course, my mantra “If it’s meant to be, it will be!” There’s nothing we can do if things are not meant to be, right? Those star cut-outs are so cute and oh my! That paper cut-out animation you did for your hubby….cutest. thing. ever!!

    I know SO MUCH how you feel 😉 My last semester has been hard. Like you, I tried as hard I could to focus on the GOOD side of everything (and there are so many), but let’s face it, sometimes it’s just too much. So I would cry a bit (5 min are often enough to just let it go, and then you’re fine and happy again. Silly hormones).
    Due date on the 20th here, so baby could arrive any time now. And this makes me more serene, I’m really enjoying the last days: to feel the baby move inside, to read long stories with the ‘big’ kids, to just relax and NOT care about anything. It’s a totally different state of mind when the pregnancy is almost over. Somehow it means you’ve made it to the end, and it’s going to be fine, and it’s sooooo fine indeed. I can’t wait to see our third little one !
    I wish you all the best for these last months, you’re doing great :)
    And don’t be too hard on yourself, you also have the right to feel a bit down at times, it’s no worry. Don’t forget your hormones are playing with you 😉
