It’s been 2 years since my last blog post, these are my confessions…
I know my Catholic friends got a little laugh there 😉
1.) I’ve missed writing. Writing has been a huge passion of mine for many years. Since I was a child, and all the way through college, I wrote in journals and diaries. I cherish having those memories preserved in writing for my eyes only. When I took up a job writing for money, I stopped writing for me. Only after I entered a new profession did I realize how much writing was a part of my life. It took not writing to figure out how much I missed it, so I started a blog. My last post announced that Patrick and I were expecting our first child. Pregnancy took over, followed by full-time mommy hood, and I lost my voice. It seems now, as an adult, a wife and a mom, when I actually have something to say and document about my legacy, I’m denying myself this gift. I truly feel God blessed me with my ability to write, I need to use it, not abuse it!
2.) I’ve missed documenting my life. These are the golden years, the years I’ll look back on and wish I could get back (every mother who has a child that is grown tells me this, so it must be true!) I need to preserve these moments…even when it seems impossible to do so!
3.) I need to be more regimented in my life. Being a stay at home mom, it’s very easy to slip out of a schedule. Sometimes it’s necessary to be flexible, I know this, but other times it’s a lack of motivation and just pure laziness. I see myself slipping into the latter, filling my free time into mindless things like Facebook scrolling and cell phone games. I need to makes the most out of my minutes – they go by way too fast!
4.) I need a “me joy”…that thing in my life that I’m doing for me and only me. So much of my life is dedicated to my child (soon to be children) and husband…the cleaning, the cooking, the washing, the folding…it’s never ending! Seriously…NEVER ENDING! My life has become domestically monotonous, I need my outlet back where I can express myself!
So there you have it…new year, new blog! Now I hope you’ll follow along 🙂
