How I’m Dealing With Stress

Since I still haven’t found the rhythm to our life at our new house, I haven’t been writing or video blogging as consistently as I used to. In a momentary fit of procrastination, I sat down yesterday and recorded a short vlog about a recent epiphany I had regarding the “stresses” in my life. Maybe you can relate.

Oftentimes, when I’m feeling stressed or overwhelmed, I think it’s my perspective that’s the problem. Rather than seeing the many blessings in my life, I see to-dos, and obligations, and unmet expectations. Remembering that each thing is truly a blessing has really helped me relax, and rediscover joy in my day-to-day activities.

Hope you all are well! And I really, really hope to find my rhythm again soon. Call me boring, but I sure do love having a routine.

xoxo, mj

  1. All I can say is, “I’m right there with you.” We moved 2 weeks ago and so we’ve been enrolling kids in new schools, unpacking, dealing with a longer commute (for me), and a new church family (my hubby’s a pastor). Yeah, all wonderful things and lots of *good* stress.

    Just wanted to say, you’re not alone. Piles of laundry are on my couch right now too!

    • I’m glad I’m not alone, but I wish I could ease your pain. I feel like it’s not getting much easier, and we’ve been in our new place for almost a month. When will my sanity return!?
