Seasons of Life
I want to be straight with you for a moment. I did not create this blog to create any guilt to those who may be thinking "I wish I had time for that." Now, if it's something you truly want to do, then you can carve out some time for it and make it happen. There's a blog post for that. Now back to business. You may be thinking "how does she have all this time?" or "she's doing all of this and I'm here drowning with 3 kids and a full time job." All completely valid. I want to discuss a term that has created a lot of comfort for me, especially now after becoming a mom!
There is a reason I created this blog now. I am in a season that is somewhat of a sweet spot of parenting. Liv sleeps well at night, she's pleasant during the day and takes one solid nap. I found myself wanting to do something with the added time in my day. This never would have happened 8 months ago because my life as a new mom couldn't handle it. There also may come another season in the future where I will have to take a little time away from the blog. That's ok too!
We all go through different seasons. These seasons can last weeks, months or even years. Right now I am getting to the gym 5 days a week, but my life 8 months ago I was getting to the gym about 2 to 3 days a week. At times, this can get you down, but I want you to start giving yourself a little grace and understand that life events can cause these different changes. Some weeks I make all the foods from Pinterest for Liv, and other weeks we get chicken nuggets and frozen veggies from Whole Foods.
Enjoy the season you're in. If you aren't happy with it, do your best to make small changes, but also understand that it is a season and all seasons come and go eventually.
