I started this blog at the beginning of 2015 with the intent to share my thoughts and experiences and basically give myself a hobby. As a new full-time mom I needed something that was just for me. Writing, story telling and having some time to check out of the everyday to-do’s is what I enjoy. Even when it doesn’t happen everyday.
It has been a month and I think I have a good start to the year. There are times I become so overwhelmed in the daily get-it-done fashion of my life and have no time to brush my own hair, let alone create a thoughtful blog post. Whenever everything seems a bit chaotic and I have a very near sighted look at the future, I remember my blog. I know that at some point I will accomplish what I need to do to take care of everything and everyone and then I will have my coveted typing time right here. When I am here I feel like the hyper activity of the household is on pause and I get to just be slower.
So, I guess my blog is doing its job. Is there anything that comes across your mind and reminds you to just be slower and restores your happiness? It seems silly that my blog does it for me, but my blog encompasses my life, my house, my family. All those things are the very essence of my blog and are what makes me slow down and just be happy.
