Here I am, with another outfit from two months ago. I am so unbelievably behind on content, it's not even funny! I've tried to be easy on myself and not get frustrated with my lack of motivation because the first trimester of pregnancy is tough for me (or it has been the two times I've been through it) but hopefully soon I'll start feeling normal and will get back on more of a schedule. I have to laugh at myself too because three or four months ago I started a "Friday Fives" series and have only done one since- I promised to do them every Friday. What a joke! I do want to start that up again and have so many other big plans for the blog, so please continue to be patient while I attempt to get back on track(ish). Y'all are the best!
Anytime I start to come down on myself or beat myself up about not being where I should be with the blog, or as a wife/mother, or a friend, I have to take a few steps back. It's so important that we remind ourselves: we're all just doing the best we can. Some days are tough and survival mode is all I can hope for. Other days I feel like I'm really gettin' sh*t done like a boss and while those days are few and far between, they're a total high. More often than not, I'm somewhere in between those two ends of the spectrum and it's easy to feel monotonous and unproductive. And you know what? I've come to realize that that's okay. Every day doesn't have to be a cross-eighty-seven-things-off-the-to-do-list kind of day. Some days there's no To Do list at all, and that's okay, too. At the end of the day, all that really matters is that Bear is happy, Zach's happy, and I'm happy. If those three things are in place, life is good.
Tonight I'm going to see Girls Trip with one of my girlfriends and while I probably should stay home and return the mass amount of emails I have starred, I'm going to cut myself some slack and enjoy a MNO. Because YOLO (apparently I'm on an acronym kick). Will I feel guilty about the emails tomorrow? Possibly, but I'll remind myself yet again that Momma needs a break sometimes. Bear's happy, Zach's happy, I'm happy. Life is good.
