I’m feeling 22… ok maybe, 32

I’m one to enjoy birthdays. I love them. As of lately I’ve been talking about living a life well-lived and doing that wholeheartedly, it shows that there should be no reason to not celebrate today. When you’re constantly doing what you love there is a lot to rejoice in. During this crazy pandemic life we’re all in, I am especially grateful for another birthday.

I recently heard this saying on the show The Morning Show, “you don’t always have to prove everyone wrong.” It’s ok to just be. It’s ok to love your babies like you’ve never loved anyone before. 

There’s a reason there are cliches and from what I’ve experienced these lackluster sayings hold so much truth, even when you’re trying to prove otherwise. 

  • I’ve accepted my extra fluff in this stage of life. 
  • It’s all a season: motherhood, parenthood, weather, and farming.
  • One hard day is really just that, one day.
  • They (my kids) grow up so fast.
  • When it rains, it pours. In both good and bad times.
  • There’s nothing wrong with stopping and smelling the roses. The work, the chores, and the obligations will always be there.
  • Work hard, play harder. We truly aren’t promised tomorrow.
  • It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.

These are just a few sayings that I think to myself over and over. 31 had some really high moments and some really low moments. In this next year I am surrounding myself with people and things that are going to lift me up and to help me stay optimistic and grateful. I’m going to continue advocating for myself. I love motherhood and everything it’s brought into my life but I have seen how easy it is to let every bit of yourself go into that part of your identity. With that being said.. LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE. 😉 

Not really, but I just like to chuckle at that saying we’ve all seen hanging in someone’s house. In all seriousness, I’m going out there and proving to myself what I am capable of, no matter how cliche it is or not. Thank you for being here and following along in my social spaces here online.
