It's a Hard-Knock Life

I'm here to tell you today that life is not always easy. Sometimes even the smallest, most trivial things can drag us down.

Things like laundry and dishes and a dirty house. Things like your husband leaving his clothes piled on the floor and muddy boot prints across your newly mopped floor and paying more attention to his friends instead of you for an evening. Things like a teething baby and a defiant toddler and a mouthy teenager.

Life happens, and while life is what we all hope and wish for, sometimes life just feel like too much.

It's okay.

You are not alone. We all come to that point from time to time. We all have days that seemingly never end and moments where it all just feels extraordinarily overwhelming.

Breathe deep, pick up the pieces, and move on.

Tomorrow is a new day; a fresh start. You are not stuck in the mess of days that are just too much.

You are free.

Free to start over, free to make better decisions, free to apologize, free to ask for help, free to cry it out, free to smile and laugh and face each difficult day with your head held high.

Focus on the better days. Life is too short, too wonderful, to be spent in the corner crying about things that we cannot change.

Life is a celebration. 

Celebrate every moment, good and bad, for the lessons and blessings that they bring.


  1. I love this!! I always tell my family...pick the hill you want to die on...because you only get to die once. :)

  2. I absolutely love the quote in the picture! Man. I need to write that on a million sticky notes and put them all over my house.

  3. I love this. I do. I tell myself it's not that bad Stephanie, get your head out of your ass daily. It's the little things that get me and I need to stop letting them.

    See you soon!!

  4. This is perfect. I need to print this off and read it on the reg (I'm sure the hubby would agree).


You don't know just how lovely you are...thank you.
