Hey friends! As promised, I’m back to share the last few updates from my summer. This past week, I shared part 1 where I talked about the months of June and July. But August and September have been eventful as well. I’ve mostly been focused on family, and it has been really good for me. Here’s what I’ve been up to.
Happy Monday, friends! Can you believe we are only two days away from the start of fall? One change I am anticipating is the slower pace that fall brings with it. Time to reflect, read, and rest are on my list of things to do.
Hey friends, I hope that you’re doing well. I looked up a few weeks ago and realized I hadn’t blogged all summer. Oops! There are a number of reasons for this. The first being the fact that my summer was incredibly SO eventful. From the very end of spring up ’til now, I’ve been on a rollercoaster. I’ve been pushed, pulled and forced to transition in ways that I didn’t see coming. But the beauty in this is that I’ve continued to move and grow. I’ve not been stagnant or stuck. And for that, I’m grateful.
April 28th is Pay It Forward Day. It was created with the sole purpose of creating a ripple of kindness that touches people around the world. If you’ve ever been on the receiving end of a random act of kindness, you know just how lovely it is to be thought of simply for being in the right place at the right time. And if you’ve been living in the United States this year, you know just how desperately we need to see things change.
A couple weeks ago, I hit the motherhood wall. Meaning that I had completely tapped out. Although I was going to bed at night, I was still running on E. This feeling began to impact the way I took care of my family, as my fuse became shorter and shorter. After speaking with my husband, we decided that I had to get some time away. I was in need of a momcation.
When I married my husband three years ago, I had a hard time bringing up things that bothered me. I never learned how to have hard conversations, so I would keep problems to myself. But if he didn’t know what was wrong, he couldn’t address it. My silence was actually hurting our relationship.
