Manic Monday: Time’s A Wasting 

Another Manic Monday’s Thoughts: Don’t Waste Energy. I know it’s been a while since I’ve written anything on Manic Monday’s thoughts. I’ve had so much on my mind lately it’s been hard to organize my thoughts and pick ONE thing to write about.  This is one of my favorites from 100 Days Happier: So many of life’s eventualities are beyond your control. Work out what things you can influence and come to a peaceful acceptance of the rest.
Don’t waste your energy
 Sometimes everything will go your way and on other days nothing at all seems to go right. If you are having one of those days, instead of wasting your energy raging against something you can’t control, take a deep breath and accept it. That way, even though the moment may be ruined, your day won’t have to be.
This has struck quite a chord with me lately. I’ve been witness to someone being so crude and ruthless, arrogant, vengeful, negligent, spiteful and hateful all at the same time it’s made me wonder how they manage to get through their day without having a massive coronary. I pray for you and your family. I feel like you need it the most. You need peace. You need to breathe and let go and live. What good is life if you’re merely existing and not living? Life is short, really short for some of us, wouldn’t you rather live it happily?   

I want to leave this earth and I want the girls to remember that although I was hard on them I was hard on them in a way that was pushing them to do and be their absolute best. I want them to remember that it was fun to color outside of the lines and letting the music move us instead of moving to the music. I want them to remember the spontaneous road trips we always took, I want them to remember fishing trips and treading through knee high waters and plucking ticks off our bellies from walking in the woods. I want them to remember me laughing because their grandpa drove me crazy. I want them to remember the stories their grandma’s and great grandma’s had to tell about us. I want to leave my mark on this earth so that these girls know what their parents were made of. Love, laughter and full of LIFE!

Life doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful -Monica  
The following two tabs change content below.
Hey there everyone, My name is Monica. I am a mom to two girls. I work as a massage therapist at a local resort and spa and I absolutely love what I do. It's been very spiritually awakening to have this calling in life. As I've gotten older I've found blogging to be very therapeutic and I'm really enjoying everything I'm learning. My life is simultaneously simple and chaotic. I find myself surviving off of caffeine, carbs, my wits, some wine, yoga & a little bit of gangsta rap. I truly believe motherhood is thug life. If you're not managing and running the show like The Godfather then these hooligans we love so much will run all over us. God bless 'em. My life would be...well, I don't know what it would be, because my mind seems to have run off many moons ago.

  1. This gave me goosebumps. I feel exactly the same way. We only get one chance at this life, we have to make it the best we can. You sound like an amazing role model to your children, teaching them what matters and they are blessed to have you. No point wasting time. And life. We just never know what’s around the corner.
