I just can’t seem to write here. I don’t do well with writing in my journal either. It seems I’m in a period of waiting and preparing. I have a lot of ideas for creating and I’ve been reading a lot and am still going to the gym. I just haven’t managed to figure out when to get my ideas accomplished. Here are some thoughts on what’s been going on in my head.
Things I’ve been noticing:
- Going to the gym is constant, but what I do there fluctuates. I was crazy into cardio there for a while. Then I started doing this weight class and recently I have been enjoying yoga. I’ve just been listening to my body and what it needs. It also seems to be telling me to cut out unhealthy treats. I am pretty addicted to Dove chocolates. Lately, I will grab a handful after the kids go down and although they are delicious, my body doesn’t need it. For the past few days I have not eaten any. Instead I’ll have two raspberry chocolate milanos (have you tried those? yummy!) and sit in the wanting. It’s amazing to me that choosing to deprive yourself and wallowing in that pain, however slight or ginormous, can actually be liberating.
- I’ve discovered Enneagrams. It’s a bit like Meyers Briggs, but more emotional, less professional. I would bank on myself being a 7. Apparently I like to avoid pain and am very enthusiastic.
- I’m still learning to be a better mom. I will never be perfect, but there is always room for improvement! By “better” I mean kinder, gentler, more forgiving of myself and making choices that will encourage my kids to grow and be better themselves as well.
- I heart making wreaths. Jason encourages me to make them and sell them. If that ever happens I’ll let you know. ;o)
Spring is coming! I will be ordering rain jackets soon because apparently this is to be the wettest Spring yet. I’m excited to get things cleaned up around here. I know the first year with a new baby is for the baby and soon I’ll be crafting and writing and missing these baby days. While I’m waiting and preparing, I’m also enjoying and delighting in this time with my sweet baby boy. Hope to be back here soon!
