Well, hello there ladies! It has been awhile hasn’t it? With a toddler, a pre-teen and a teenager and two business…oh and did I mention we added a puppy to the mix? Yes, we now have the cutest pug ever, Lucy!
I don’t know about you, but every time I’m stressing about feeling overwhelmed, I add something to my plate and then I’m like, “ok I can manage this too”, I don’t know if its good or bad but it works for me.
When I completed 75hard in January, I learned a lot of things about myself. I found out that things that served a purpose before, maybe weren’t going to take me to the next level. It was a gradual but quick mind shift change that I desperately needed in my life.
Have you also noticed that when you think you’re good and nothing can bother you, something triggers you? That has been me the last couple of weeks. Like, who knew at 35 you would still be learning and growing?
Which makes me reflect on my childhood, and think, damn! My parents were growing up AND raising kids. My perspective to certain events in my life, changed completely.
As my kids grow up, my parenting style also has to evolve with them, and that’s something no one can teach you.
Which brings me to the next thing, I have been trying to be more present at the moment and go back to the things that would make me happy. Reading books, walking alone or with one of my kids or my husband. Enjoying a good movie night were we all cuddle in the couch and watch a movie and just BEING.
Social media is great but it can also be a distraction and it’s a thin line to navigate. I don’t feel the need to post as before but believe me when I say I have had the urge to take a lot of pictures, capture moments. I don’t know maybe it’s because I see my toddler and I see my two older kids and I can vividly remember them being that small.
I just want to be present..good, the bad, the ugly and the fun times.
Toodles my noodles! ❤️
