Today was the pits.
I think I was on the verge of tears more times than I could count. 
I have a lot going on lately & feeling extremely overwhelmed. 

I am trying my to make the best of what I have been given.
It is not always easy.
There are times I want to throw in the towel when it comes to the people or struggles in my life.
Today has been one of those days.

I pray that God would continue to give me strength and wisdom to get through this season.
I'm exhausted.

I am always reminded, however, that tomorrow is a new day.
For that I am grateful.
So. very. grateful.


  1. I wish I had something clever to say, but all I can offer is to keep putting one foot in front of the other, and cry/scream if you need to.
    When I'm going through a tough time and feel overwhelmed, I often find that trying to bottle it all up makes me even more emotional. I hope that you find peace and rest, even if things are still exhausting xo

  2. Sorry to hear life's rough right now! Keep on praying that God will give you the strength you need to get through this and he will! Hope today was better than yesterday :)

  3. I randomly came across your blog today.
    So sorry to hear that things have been a bit rough for you. This crazy thing we call life can be extremely testing sometimes but trust me when I say that things will get better.
    If you haven't read 'the power of now' you absolutely must!!


  4. I completely understand. The past nine months have been rough for me, and even during that period when I thought things would get better-- they wouldn't. So many days I wondered why God was not answering my prayers and why things were not getting better...But now things are finally starting to look up. Everything happens on his time and his plan is always best, even if we think otherwise. Sometimes he puts us through bad situations because hes trying to give us a wake-up call and wants us to do something else. Read the book of Jonah, it helped me a lot! You will get through this <3

  5. I usually respond to each individual comment on my blog.
    For this all I could really come up with was a huge 'Thank You' to you all.
    Your sweet words have been absolute encouragement for me!
    We definitely all have our days and things will get better ... even if it happens slowly.
    Today is gorgeous outside (82 degrees, my friends!!), I have the day off, and time to spend with family & friends. :)
    It doesn't get much better, right?! :)
    I wish I could give you all a big hug, but I hope this small comment expressed how grateful I am to log into my blog to realize that some of you took a few minutes to leave me words of encouragement!
    I hope you all have a beautiful day!
    much love, colie
