Life Isn’t Fair so Keep Moving Forward

I’m having a hard time getting inspiration to post lately.  I’m having a hard time getting the energy to exercise to continue my life change (which I have lost 27 pounds for already). I’m having a hard time keeping myself emotionally together, even though I should be jumping up and down because we are less than 3 weeks away from the end of the school year and the start of the glorious summer. 

This is because I am still learning at days away from 32 years old that Life Isn’t Fair. We have an illness in my family right now that is not going to go away, just continue to progress.  My husband called me last night to let me know that he unexpectedly lost his job.  We suck at financial management. 

How do I explain to my beautiful daughter who is almost 4 what is happening?  I can’t keep things from her.  She clearly sees that things are changing.  I don’t want her to learn at 4 years old that life isn’t fair. 

I am afraid at the changes that are coming.  But I do appreciate and cling to the support of friends and family, no matter how far away they are.  And that we had already paid for our pool membership for the summer.  At least we have that going for us.

So, I continue to keep it together. I plan and organize things the best that I can to focus on getting things done.  My new motto (stolen from “Meet the Robinsons”) is going to be “Keep Moving Forward”.  I can’t look back.  I must put one foot in front of the other and keep things from impacting LittleM as little as possible.  I can do it. Keep Moving Forward.
