You know the old adage of "if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all?"

That's usually how I approach my blogging, Twitter and Facebook - I keep it upbeat, happy and generally rated PG. Luckily, because my life generally is.

Obviously though my life isn't all rainbows, unicorns and sunshine. If you thought it was, god bless you.

I'm stressed this week.

So many questions going through my head. 

Am I on the right career path? Is my relationship on the the right track? How am I going to pay for all the events I have in 2013? I'm probably going to have to take out a loan to get my roof/windows fixed. My mom. My car keeps needing more money getting put into it. How am I not eating dairy, wheat and working out four times a week and my weight is still plateauing? Am I going to have to move out of the city of Cleveland proper? Why is this zit on my chin so big? Am I prepared for the future that could be my life? Is it what I want?

Stressed. And I'm being vague and very high level.

The positive side, which I always try to think on, is that I know everything happens for a reason and that everything is going to work out. It always does.

I just pray for the serenity to accept the things I cannot change - that's a famous prayer for a reason, guys. 

Oh eff it, blame this entire post on my PMS hormones. 

Happy Friday, kids.

  2. life is full of a million challenges and so much is out of our control ... but keep on doing it. somehow we find the most strength when we least expect it and i have no doubt it will come to you in more ways than one :)

  3. Have some ice cream--just a bit. Or sorbet if you must. You've got to allow yourself a treat now and then.

  4. You're going to be great. Weeks like these, questions like those, and pms is inevitable. Keep up the hard work with the diet and exercise- your persistence is inspiring!

    I admire that you were able to put in a positive side even with everything going on :)

  5. I totally understand...this is what Matthew calls "Jen's Crazy Week." I try to withhold all major decisions during this time.
    Seriously, I feel like doubts and worries are a slippery slope. Take a deep breath, have a nice weekend, and everything will sort itself out the way it should.

  6. Being grown up sucks. The more layers we add to our lives (careers, pets, spouses, children), the more complicated the questions become. And just when we think we've got the answer to one, five more pop up. I want to go back to the time when I was wondering where I'd find a dollar so I could go get penny beers at my college bar! =)

  7. OMG... I just read your post and thought - Is this girl for real? 50% of my problems are 50% of your problems. All the way down to the chin... I swear it wasn't there this morning when I put makeup on...?? Then I read a few more posts and realized that we need to get a glass of wine (or three).

  8. I usually lay blame on the GOP. It helps.

    I hear you lady. Being an adult can suck sometimes with all the crap that we have to deal with. I don't know what the answer is. All I do know is I try to take one problem at a time and deal with it because thinking about All The Things all at once can be so overwhelming.

    Hugs to you!

  9. Hi Alexa! Just came across your blog and would LOVE to be added to the Cleveland blog roll! We've been here 3 years in Feb and I've been blogging since 2008 as well! I'm actually also in the marketing world so cheers to that! :) Can't wait to follow along!

  11. Everything does happen for a reason and unfortunately, all women have that week where life's little things escalate into huge things. However, you are lucky to be surrounded by people who love you and really, that is all that matters.

  12. Ah - I totally feel you. All you can do is trust that your gut is going to take you where you need to be. Sometimes things just fall into your lap when the change is right - but wouldn't it be nice if it wasn't just hindsight that was 20/20?

  13. I'm catching up on some (very) belated blog reading and just read this. So I hope your February is going better than the end of January, but I hear you.

    For some reason, the beginning of this year more than others has been a time for that kind of questioning. First off - kudos for opening up on the not-so-great things. Secondly, thanks for reminding me about the prayer for serenity. It's the second time I've read a mention of that prayer in the last week - I think the universe is trying to tell me something.

    I hope there are more rainbows, unicorns and sunshine ahead for you.
