Best Mother’s Day ever!!!

This is what my nap time hustle looks like today ☕️🖤📖
.
.
Most days my nap times include switching laundry over, picking up toys, checking emails and any other work I can squeeze in. I’m sure my mom bosses out there an relate. .
.
Well today I took the quiet time to “mom hustle” to my favorite chair with my coffee and book to spend some much needed time on myself. Time spent like this might not get the chores done but it does help my family. .
.
I’m filling my bucket. I am happier. I will be a much better mother and partner if I spend this time with myself to recenter. .
.
Take a moment today for yourself even if it’s just an hour. Spend that time doing something just for you. Fill your bucket up a little. You will be happier and so will the ones you care for! .

Goal setting and future planning on a rainy day 🌧
.
.
The beginning of a new month always feels so refreshing. A new start! I’m starting to schedule more of my days. I use to resist scheduling everything because I wanted to feel free. Instead I feel like I never get to what I want to do. My goals keep getting pushed off further and further into the future. .
.
I am now embracing a schedule to make sure I have time for all the things I want to get done! .

A little spring detox with some Acu-yoga!! 🧘🏻‍♀️
.
.
I have found that I love acupuncture! This was an amazing relaxing class that helped detox my body, mind, and emotions. Spring is the perfect time to detox in all areas of life. Emotionally, mentally, physically, even around your house and office. .
.
I am taking this sense of detox forward with me this spring and clearing out all the junk I have let build up over this last season of life. Time for new growth 🌱

“rest in your body.
live there for a while. .
.
how many times do you leave yourself in search of a different home?” This weekend was filled with old friends, good talks and wine. My heart and soul feel full and energized. .
.
There is something about spending quality time with old friends I haven’t see in a while that makes my heart happy.
We talked about many topics but one that I have been struggling with lately is my sense of meaning and purpose in this new season of my life. .
.
I am a new mom again; a mom of two. We are in a new state a thousand miles from friends and family. I’m staying home full time. I’m building new friendships and helping my kids foster new friendships as well.
I don’t feel like I have a space that’s mine yet.
I want be there before and after school. .
.
But...I want something in life that’s just mine. I want a space that I can create. I want to find meaning outside of my kids. This weekend help me feel that there may be more out there for me. That I am not alone in my search. .
.
I love being Mom but I’m searching for my other title.... .

Today baby girl, you have been a handful. You don’t want to nap or be left alone. I just want to clean the house and tackle the mountain of laundry that has built up on the floor. I want to put away the clothes where they belong this time instead of at the foot of our bed where they have been for the last week. I want to do the dishes and start some spring cleaning. I have no other kiddos to watch and no where to be so please just calm down so I can get some things done.
But then you put those little arms up and reach for me. Something you just recently started doing. And it reminds me that so very soon you will not need me like you do now. I will miss the times you laid on my chest asleep. I will miss this.
I have no kiddos to watch and no where to be so I will hold you and let you sleep and remember this is something I will miss. The rest of the world will wait.

“The art of living lies less in eliminating our troubles than growing with them” - Bernard M Baruch

Enjoy a morning of peace out on the porch with my coffee and the newness of today. Reflecting on this quote gives me a sense of power and control over my life. Instead of trying to get rid of my struggles I can learn to grow with them. .
