I Thought Everything was OK
There's a point in your life when you feel OK.
Just OK's not bad, It's pretty great when everything's OK.
But when you're laying in bed after, what you thought was an OK day, you think back on it and realize you were wrong.
You think about your 3 month old letting out her first belly laugh a few hours ago. You keep rewinding it over and over in your head as it keeps you awake with the permanent smile it leaves on your face.
You think about how much more strong willed, you thought your husband really was, by cutting sugar from his diet and trying to be a healthier, better person. Even if it's just to be a better example to his kids.
You think about your Three-and-a-half-year-old son being cuddly and loving for no reason at all, just wanting to show you how much he somehow loves you, even after all of your flaws as a mother.
That's the moment when you put it all together and realize your life isn't OK. It's way more than OK. Sure you don't get everything you think you need. You don't get to run out and do all the things you've ever wanted. That's not what makes your life awesome. What makes it awesome is being in that exact moment where you are, no matter where it is, and realizing everything it way more than OK. "Everything is Awesome!"(couldn't help the Lego Movie quote).
Have an awesome day everyone!
