Everything Tragic Seems Trivial.

*Edit at bottom.

This past week has been a stressful one:

Cleaning, Listing, and Selling a home.

Offers. Counter Offers.

Buying a home.

Figuring out how I want my business to go this year.

How many sessions to take?

Babysitters? Nanny?

Home studio, perhaps?

Baby Weight. How to lose it when I can barely open my eyes, let alone get on the treadmill.

Money? Budgeting?

Can I learn to use my Cricut Cake in time for V-day?

How many days of preschool next year?

So many things I have agonized over this week.

Today I read THIS. I watched THIS.

I read one of the comments:

Reading your blog has made everything tragic in my life seem trivial.

I could not agree more.

EDIT: Since I wrote this post, her husband passed away. My heart breaks for them.

Thanks Joy for sharing. It's amazing how we get so wrapped up in our own selves and forget what really matters. Are these friends of yours? And where did you move? Crazy times! But what adventures to remember!

Joy said...

I do not know these people, I just know she is a photographer. Her most recent posts had me sobbing over my computer today.
We are just moving to another home here, not a real 'move' like we are leaving. :)

It is good to be able to put things into perspective.
Not to minimize the daily struggles you and I go through, but in the grand schemes of things we are lucky to go through them and not be faced with these issues.
Anxious to hear about the house.
