Life Keeps Moving Forward
A funny thing happens when you go away for ten days, life keeps moving forward. While I have been away the life I left behind at home has gone on, an Etsy shop has opened, registrations for my spring workshops have been rolling in, connections were strengthened, and I began to feel like the old me. That last one, beginning to feel like the old me, that one, well that one has me feeling pretty darn amazing. I said in a text to a friend the other day I have my mojo back.
This trip south has been so good for me. Time away with my little man deepening our connection, time by the ocean, walking on the beach, and soaking up the sunshine allowing my heart, soul and spirit to heal, time with my parents, chatting and feeling supported, and time, time to be, to soak up the present moment, and to enjoy slow and simple days. This trip has allowed me to focus on the things that are important to me, and I think in doing so, I have found myself again, the real me, the one that is happy, content, and inspired.
I still have many questions about my future, and many options to explore, but right now, as I sit here writing this post, I feel ready for whatever lies ahead. I know there will be more bumps along the road, there always are, but I feel strong, and most of all, I feel ready to accept the challenges that will come up. Life hasn't been easy the last few months, if anything parts of it have been downright horrible, but you know what, I am here, I am happy, and I made it.
Tomorrow, Reece and I begin our journey home, and I am looking forward to stepping back into my life at home, the life of a homeschooling, homesteading, homemaking mama. I will arrive home inspired, with new dreams and goals to work towards, feeling grateful for my time at the ocean, and blessed, yet again, to walk this path I am on.
Wishing you a lovely start to your week my friends, and sending a little love your way.
