Howdy! I hope you had a fabulous weekend!
We went electronic free Saturday and Sunday in an effort to turn our little trolls back into little boys. No TV, Ipads, or Xbox. It was a loooong weekend but it felt amazing to spend so much quality time with the kiddos. Here they are Sunday helping with a neighborhood lemonade stand.
Like I mentioned last week, I have been a bit stuck in my life.
I have been doing a lot of thinking these past few weeks. I have had some amazing support from my friends, family, and those of you who have been kind enough to read my little blog.
That being said. I’ve realized that I basically need to chill the fuck out.
It is time to slow down, prioritize, and start to truly enjoy this beautiful life of mine, instead obsessing about what is next.
#1, Above all things, I need to be more present with my boys and my husband. I want to learn to enjoy our time together more. I need to stop going through the motions, show more patience, and be a kinder human in general.
And for ME, I will finally take the time to nurture some passions that I have let go of these past few years.
I was a terrible student in high school. I attended a very prestigious, and competitive high school, a setting I do not thrive in. As a result, I was a huge, insecure asshole.
When I went to college, and the onus was on me whether or not I attended class, and everyone was there because they wanted to be, I thrived. In fact I graduated college as an honor student. College also ignited in me a passion for writing. Last week I bit the bullet and enrolled in a 6 week creative writing course, and I am SO excited!!!
Secondly, I love to cook. Believe it or not I love to cook more than I love to eat. (hard to believe, I know).
I remember being a little girl and just following my grandmother around the kitchen. I even dabbled in culinary school for about a year.
But lately I seem to have lost my love for cooking. I really feel it is something I need to explore further as to why, and my hope is that my passion for cooking is re ignited. To get the ball rolling I went to Bed, Bath, and Friggin Beyond on Saturday and bought a few fun gadgets. I also spent a few hours over the weekend “freshening up” the kitchen.
I am excited to see what these next few weeks bring for me, and I am going to just keep foraging ahead because that’s what moms do.
I think these two goals are lofty enough so I will stop there.
Are there any passions you have let fall to the waist side that you would like to re ignite?
Until next time,
