Real truth: I am at a point in my life where every moment is important to me. I chose to be a wife first and then a mother and those two things are exactly what I want to be. I no longer have time for mindless entertainment, gossip, or distractions from reality. I sincerely love all of my friends, but I'm choosing this life I have today and this life requires sacrifice. My peace, health and sanity are very important. I no longer have time for things that do not replenish my soul or feed my spirit. So just being honest, my commonly used term these days has been "no". Not that I cannot participate in certain things but it is not worth the sacrifice of my health or sanity anymore. I choose my family first. I choose me first. I choose what I know is best, not what I don't want to miss out on. I'm saying no to one of my best friends weddings because I will be close to my due date and that's just life. I need friends who can understand that too (and she totally does don't worry). But I write this at a place of realizing that some people won't understand why I say yes or no to certain things and honestly it's nobody's business but mine. If you love me you'll want me to be healthy and have peace in my life. I can't be everything to everyone and I won't be. Not saying I'm getting rid of all friendships, but these days the friendships I do put effort into have to be ones that are good for my spirit and replenishing, not exhausting. This season of life only comes once and I'm going to protect it and enjoy it as much as I can.
With true honesty and love
God bless #ilove #wifelife #momlife
