The Princess and The Prosthetic

Is It Hard or Does it Feel Hard?

November 24, 2020 in Warrior Princess - 1 Comment
I’m feeling extremely overwhelmed right now.
Callie’s upcoming knee surgery.
Trying to plan, anticipate, and schedule all the things for it especially during Covid.
I just started on a new insulin pump.
I’m working on a ton of high level projects at work.
The stress of sending my husband to work is at an all time high.
I have to bring a dish for Thanksgiving (I’m usually delegated to rolls 😆).
I’m not getting my workouts in as regularly as what I want to.
I feel like our house is a disaster between doing the reno and two of us “working” from home.
Friends have pulled away because of the career my husband chose and my support of our law enforcement family.
And oh yeah….we’re in the middle of a pandemic.
So I have to take a step back and ask myself….
“Is it hard or does it FEEL hard?”
Because those are two different things.
Callie’s surgery and watching James go on duty each day…..hard.  Those are two things that I can legitimately say are hard things to deal with and work through.
The rest of the things….feel hard but I realize that I can try to take steps to mitigate that feeling.  I can do things to help relieve that feeling, head it off at the pass, and work through it.
  • Journaling.
  • Asking for help.
  • Realignment of my definition of “success and achievement” right now.
  • Prioritizing my health and letting the other things like the housework go–gracefully.
  • Gratitude practice everyday.
  • Making a list and tackling things one at a time.
  • Perspective Perspective Perspective.
And the reminder…..this to shall pass.
We have a pretty good track record of triumphing over what has tried to slay us in the past💛

    It is hard but you’ve overcome worse and I’m sure you will continue to do so. Sorry to hear about “friends” that part has been the toughest for me as well lately. Sending positive vibes your way, know you and your family are not alone. <3

    Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
