AM SURE THAT YOU NOTICED. Or maybe you didn’t because you decided to take a step back too.
Either way, I did this because looking back at the last few years I realize how much stress I held in my life by trying to do it all. I have this desire to accomplish all the things I know I C A N do and it has ruled my day to day. God has really been working on my heart to stop leaning into that desire and focus on more of what he has planned for me.
The biggest thing that I realized is that my phone was taking a huge priority over the little faces right in front of me and that the most important place I could focus on instead of my phone was my home. This has meant that I can’t keep up with weekly stories, posts, blogs and even newsletters. I’ve set all of it on the backburner to be more present and committed to my family and my children specifically while I have so much time with them.
I often ask for advice from older parents about what I should do or really lean into when it comes to parenting and they always say TIME. Spend time with them because one day they won’t want it and it’s hard to hear this when you’re surrounded by toddlers and infants that ONLY want you but it’s true. Time is a thief and they won’t want to be around me like this forever. It’s my job on this earth to be a good wife and mother FIRST over my career.
When it comes to blogging and being an influencer this could be considered a kiss of death not to fully commit to doing ALL THE THINGS but I am sharing to be transparent and to hope that you understand even though I want to do it all I just can’t until school starts. That’s when I have committed to getting back into my work groove and being consistent on social media again. I really want to be honest with you, always and by doing so, my hope is that you understand and still continue to follow along with my journey.
YES, I do love and share all things healthy and holistic but I also promote doing so in a real way in motherhood. Sometimes that means taking some time away and focusing on family. Living in burn out land is the exact opposite of what I stand for and I promote so breaks aren’t a sign of weakness but a sign of strength when you can see what is failing and what needs to thrive.
Creating is something that I have always been drawn to, I am an enneagram 4 if you’re wondering, and I am excited to get back to just that. Here’s to a fresh start heading into a new school year for Moms and Kids striving to live a healthier and more nontoxic lifestyle.
