3 Things Thursday - Focus, Focus, Focus
2. Focus. It is ok. It could be so much worse. The things that have taken my focus from me are ultimately good things. Things that will put Eddy and her family in a better place with a better future. But it is not without change and the anxiety related to that change has eaten away from my usual big picture - "every little things, gonna be alright" mentality. It is ok for Eddy to struggle. It is ok if I gain a couple of pounds back. It is ok to feel overwhelmed. I've come a long way, and this is all about growth and strength, mental and physical.
3. Focus. Valentines Day is right around the corner. This has got me thinking about love and flowers and sweets and all things Hallmark. I'm not a huge Valentines fan, but it is nice to have a reminder to do something special for the one we love. Hubs and Eddy have the same love language - we are both Acts of Service people. We do things. We try to keep up our ends of the bargain. I launder Hub's shirts, he takes out the trash. I destroy things, he fixes them. We are ying and yang. We try to get time alone for date nites and the such, but with my focus issues (see above), I've been taking my stress out on Hubs. I need to focus not only on Acts of Service but the other love languages as well. Focus on us.Awwww.....
