You Have to Brave the Storm to See the Rainbow

Not sure what cosmic crap has been brewing this past week, but I feel like my household has been cursed with crazy behavior and rollercoaster emotions.  Needless to say, I am SO relieved it’s Friday.  An end to a shitty-ass week.

With that being said, I have had some great highlights to my week – Wednesday I drove 2 hours to give a 5 minute presentation for a conference that my day job puts on every year.  It was a great experience, and I would probably do it again next year, if I’m asked to of course.  That night I joined in on some much needed Wine & Yoga time.  My weekly ritual to help melt away my stresses.  Probably one of my favourite parts of the week! The instructor is awesome and light-spirited and she puts up with us crazies that show up on a weekly basis.  It’s wonderful! hahaha.

Last night, my sister took me to a “Cocktails & Calligraphy” class.  Now I am obsessed with brush lettering.  I told the instructor, whom I happen to know since High school, that by the time I am done, I will probably have it all over my walls at home.  We haven’t covered up the builder’s paint yet (I know, it’s been over 2 years), so might as well write all over it before we finally make the time to paint! Alicia at Alicia Spence Design Co did a fabulous job and she got us super pumped.  I think if she didn’t tell us we were already over the allotted time that I would have stayed all night.

Today, a potential client from New York sent me a text message asking for my makeup services!  Apparently I was highly recommended by a fellow makeup artist, so I am quite excited to do this!  Unfortunately, I will not be going to New York to do this, as they are hosting their engagement party at a golf course just North of the salon I partner up with.  But, a girl can dream big and hope for that flight to New York right???  One day! For now, I will be happy with this job; the client sounds like an interesting person, so I can’t wait to meet them!

This weekend I will probably use the time wisely to get shit done at home, reflect on a few things, and spend some time with my kids.  They drive me insane all week long, but they are mine, and mine alone (ok, my husband’s too lol) and need to enjoy me at my best too.

I chose today to talk about my highs, because this week has been full of lows.  I need to remind myself every once in a while that good things happen, whether big or small, and that no matter what storm may pass, there will always be a rainbow and beautiful sunshine waiting for me.  Can’t appreciate the good things without some of the bad.

Hope you all have a beautiful Friday and enjoy the wonderful weather ahead!

Signing off for now,

The Super Exhausted, Working Mommy
