Do you ever feel like the pressure is just too much?

The pressure to be good at your job (or jobs). The pressure to be thin, pretty, interesting, nice. The pressure to be stylish.  The pressure to be a good wife, Mom, friend.  The pressure to have a good blog that people want to read. 

As I read all of my pressure points I see that they are all pressures I put on myself, but I really want all of those things!

What I am finding however, is that all of these pressures can be really un-motivating (maybe not a real word)!  I am tired! I am tripping on my own toes.

What are some things that I can do to relieve the stress.....

I can't quit my job.  I can't quit on all the hard work I put in to lose the weight.  I like to be interesting.  I want to have a good blog.  I want to be a good wife and friend (I am only a Mom to my dogs currently).

I think I need to give myself a break. I think I am trying to hard. I need to just be myself and everything listed above will come naturally. Right? I know that there are things that have to be worked at, but I need to give myself a break!

Serenity now, serenity now!!!

  1. Just remember, girl, being a good anything doesn't require you to be perfect. Live it and enjoy it. And if you mess up a little bit, it's OK. ;o)

    1. Lisa! Thank you for you inspirational words!

  2. Great honesty here - I think this is something most of us struggle with, but a lot of people hide it. I go through phases of feeling so much pressure too, but you're right, it helps to remember that it's usually us putting that pressure on ourselves, and it's okay to give yourself a break! Take the time you need for yourself and do something just for you!

  3. Laura! Thanks for commenting! I was a little afraid to throw this out there. It makes me feel better that other struggle too!
