Baby I’m Back
Sometimes We Need a Break
The strangest thing is to walk into a shopping centre without wearing a mask. I don’t know about you but I feel a bit naked and cold lately. With all that’s going on I can honestly say the world is changing. I’m not always sure what to think. What I can tell you is my motivation and strength first and far most comes from above.
I stepped away from my blog to adjust to our new lifestyle where I permanently started homeschooling my four kids. I also entered my forties and for some reason needed time to adjust a couple of things for this second half of my life. So much lessons learnt and so many hard moments but also moments of joy and achievement on so many different levels.
It’s not always just bad, life offers a bit of both and we have to embrace each moment, live in each day and work to move forward. The only way to get there is by taking one step at a time in faith and know where you are on your way too.
Two Years Of Crazy
Where to begin? So much has happened over the past two years and although I’m still the same person, I almost feel like a completely new person. Renewed in vision for my future and taking the time to get to know myself all over again. When we are moms of small kids we get lost in nappies, milk, nap times, schedules etc but, as they grow a little older and no longer requires 24/7 assistance it is time to bounce back.
With covid the world changed in a blink of an eye and no one knew what to expect and how much it would become our new reality. For some this new reality became their worst nightmare, others got to know their kids for the first time again, time became a lot, fear creeped into homes, hearts and futures.
We all dealt with Covid in our own different ways just as it affected everyone in its own different way. Fact remains it was a hard reality everyone faced all over the world, everyone in the same boat.
I for one have learnt that it’s okay to have days where you are not okay. Then it’s also okay to be happy when someone else is sad. Or to cry in the bathroom and shut down for a day. It’s okay to get stuck in your own world for a while. Or to take a break, walk away, do something for yourself or be a little selfish with your time.
As long as we don’t stay in an unhealthy place for too long. Consider those around us and we don’t hurt others around us on purpose. Understand and know exactly why we are feeling and doing what we are feeling and doing. Every single person walking this planet has good days and bad days. The perfection of life does not lie in a perfect life. It lies within those small perfect moments that we treasure and make count.
I am happy to announce that I am back and I am busy with so many exciting new things.
I look forward to be sharing life with you as I did before. I’ve become the CEO of our home. As I got to know myself all over again I am happy to share all the ups and downs with you. Being a mom, wife, daughter, sister and friend is part of who I am. It is time to take the step and finally do what I was called to do.
Thank you for all the support and love over the years. Cheers to this wonderful new journey that lies ahead.
