It’s been a hot minute since I last blogged. I needed to step away and re-prioritize my life.
When January hit, I was so excited for what the year was going to bring. Lists upon lists were made of new ideas, what I want to accomplish.. and then February came and a whirlwind of life took place.
February was such an emotional rollercoaster that I needed to seriously step back and figure out what really makes me happy. What and who adds value to my life. What is my plan going to be now.
So here I am. It’s March. It’s supposed to be the time for a change of seasons upon us. But I live in Nebraska and it’s so cold and snowy here I don’t see the end of winter being any time soon.
This alone adds to my mental health issues, but a little self tanner and blonde highlights are doing the trick for now.
I have thought long and hard about where my heart is and where I need to focus my energy.
Most of my energy obviously goes to being a mom & wife. Taking care of my family is the most important on the list. I don’t know how I have energy some days to keep up with this household but God gives me the strength.
The Be Kind Movement is so important to me. My heart just pitter patters when I think about it. So this is something I know I need to continue with.
But here’s where I’m at with the energy factor.. I can’t focus on making keychains and trying to build another business.
There just isn’t enough time in the day. I will have some supplies on hand for those random orders but it’s not my main focus anymore.
My collaborations with the Tee Studio Shop will continue forever. I love what we are doing together. Helping raise money for specific people, spreading kindness and changing the world. This is something I won’t give up. It’s near and dear to my heart.
I also launched a podcast in the last few weeks. The thought of having my own podcast, to share my thoughts and to actually let people hear my voice is something I’ve wanted to do for a while. Blogging is great. I have loved sharing my life through words. I’m sure I will still blog from time to time, but the podcast is also another outlet for me to share what’s on my heart.
God has put all these great things in my life for a reason. I’ve discovered that I can’t do EVERYTHING. I am not super woman, even though most days I feel like I’m pretty close.
Stepping back and really deciding what truly makes me happy and adds value to my life needed to happen or I was going to spiral into a deep hole again.
My 30’s are learning years for sure. I’m lucky I’m learning this lesson at the age of 32 instead of 52. I want to be the best I can be for the two littles that watch me every day. If I’m able to put all my energy into just a few things, I’m able to do them better and with passion. Not just enough energy to slide by.
So here’s to making a few changes that will change my life for the better. My advice to you: do what you love. Do what makes you happy. Do what adds value and be around people that add value. Don’t waste time with anything less.
That’s all we need.
