This weekend flew by, didn’t it?! It was so great, though. I enjoyed some much-needed quality time with Mitchell. We had brunch with friends on Saturday and visited with family.
We made it to church yesterday and the message was just what I needed. Have you ever gone to church and felt like the word is speaking directly to you, personally? I love it! Today’s message was about turning to the Lord when you’re seeking life and happiness, rather than trying to find it in objects, or status. In the Lord, there is an unending love, and through the word you can find hope and guidance if you allow yourself to open your heart to it and believe in it.
This is so true and resonates in me. A little over a month ago, I was feeling so much anxiety and this heavy sadness. I couldn’t pinpoint why, but I knew something needed to be done. I was having these random anxiety attacks and would cry and cry and cry. I’m not able to say why.
I let my OB know and he recommended I see my primary care physician, who recommended a prescription and that I talk to a therapist to help. After doing some research on the prescription and its possible risks, I decided against it.
I shared my feelings with my parents and a close friend, who told me she had experienced similar feelings. I’m so glad I opened up to her because she really helped me get through it, knowing that I wasn’t alone. She recommended I talk to someone, a book she had read, and to open my bible. All of these things together helped, but I have to say that reading Word reminded me that he lives in me and everything will be okay.
A little scripture that’s helped:
I am with you always | Matthew 28:20
My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness |2 Corinthians 12:9
I know I need to stay strong, happy and healthy not only for myself but also for this little baby. And I now remind myself, as I pray each morning on my way to work that He live in my heart so others may see his light through me.
After church, we played some tennis, which I haven’t played in years! Running around the court made me realize just how out of shape I am. Honestly, I’ve been hesitant to work out fearing that I might hurt the baby. My friend who does cross fit explained some of the benefits for the baby and how it’ll make labor easier. So, I’m determined to get back in the gym. My goal is to work out every day this week. I’ll be sure to update you guys on how that’s going on my Snapchat: Katkle1n.
Have any of you mamas out there felt the same way? Did you work out while pregnant? If so, let me know in the comments below.
I’m looking forward to a great week ahead. Be sure to check back daily, as I’ll be sharing some of my summer favorites from my reading list to my closet and some style inspiration as well as links on where to shop to achieve the look for less.
Hope you all have a great week! Thanks for stopping by.
