It’s kind of been my state of mind in general lately.
Not that I’ve completely let go of appearances, but I have definitely fallen into the mom trap of putting yourself very last. Days go by where I don’t brush my hair at all. There have just been so many other more important things on my mind. Like feeding myself. Or peeing.
I get really stressed when things aren’t in order, and to say that things have been out of order for the past 6 months is an understatement. Still, I have found joy through the chaos, laughter through the mess, and happiness through the struggle of having a baby. Sure I’ve found pain too…and lots of crying. But joy nonetheless.
Having a baby brings out so much in a person. Actually, it brings out everything-the good, the bad, definitely the ugly, and definitely the cranky. But it also brings out some things you wouldn’t think; like confidence, humility, and empathy. It’s these qualities that make me feel like I am getting back to my same old self.
Now that I feel somewhat confident in my ability to keep another human alive, I am starting to have some room in my brain to think about things I enjoyed doing. It’s also a new year so that always brings thoughts of improvement for the future and I have decided that I am going to take blogging a little more seriously this year. What does that mean? It means more posts! It means more recipes and health topics and more crafting. And to me, it means taking this blog in a new direction and I’m excited about what lies ahead.
There are so many fun things to do with a child and I have had months to think and get all sorts of new ideas.
Plus, mommy and me OOTD’s are a thing right now…
So here’s to 2015.
Let the fun begin!
