And since I am being real here, if you are following me on instagram(@Lexruns92)..You saw how I shared this picture. I am currently typing this up while sitting in pants I have been in for like, six days straight. They are pretty much just a part of me by now(totally horrible, but totally honest). And I am currently choosing to do everything but take a shower. A mess right? Right.
I have talked about how messy life is. I talk about that a lot. Because, these days social media can be so very deceiving. It is insane. I am here to share the story of my life. And the beautiful train wreck it is.
Okay, so you all are going to think I am completely insane. It is okay though. I am honest. And a complete mess.
Hi. My name is Alexis. I am twenty-three years young. I got pregnant at the age of seventeen. I had my gorgeous daughter at the young age of eighteen. I got married right after I found out I was pregnant(Yes, at seventeen years old). I was married for three years. Divorced at the age of twenty-one. Remarried at the age of twenty-two. Divorced for the second time at the age of twenty-three.
Yes, my life is a mess. I have made a lot of interesting decisions. I wouldn’t really consider them “mistakes” because I really have learned a lot since the age of seventeen.
People pretty much call me crazy and insane I am sure. That is okay with me. I love life. No matter where I am. I may have anxiety out the roof and some days I feel like I am sinking into a black hole. But, I adore this life I live. I love learning. I am growing. I am constantly growing.
I wouldn’t change anything I have been through. I am here for a reason. A very messy reason, but a reason at that.
On other notes…Here are other messy areas in my life…
My house gets a little too messy at times…The dishes start to stack in the sink…the laundry doesn’t get done for days at times and piles up. Some days I look at the clothes and roll my eyes. I mean, come on. That pile totally taunts me. My daughter’s attitude. Oh lawd. That child just turned five and she thinks she is fifteen. I have to remind her often she isn’t a teenager and most days, she doesn’t believe me. 😉 Some days I
don’t even brush my hair. Some days a shower just doesn’t happen. There are a ton of days the make up calls to me and I ignore it. Some times I wear socks for like, 4 days in a row without washing them(to answer your question, yeah, my feet do stink sometimes). I often times repeat outfits to work…and by that…I mean from one day to another. I miss my weekend cleaning days at times. I put off going to the grocery store all.the.time.
See. I am not afraid to point out the flaws in my life. I am not afraid to share with the world when I fail or mess up. Because, in the end, it is okay. It really and truly is okay.
There is no need to sugar coat life. My life is anything but glamorous. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. Without the hard times we couldn’t truly appreciate the beautiful moments.
(And to finish up this post for you all. Here is a picture of me that I did not mean to take. I thought I was taking a video for my vlog. Yeah, again, no perfection here.)
Thanks for reading the short story of my crazy, beautiful, and
