How are you feeling?
With the whisper of fall in the air, I’ve started to think about change. I’ve been feeling overwhelmed lately and trying to figure out how I can best both process those emotions and move through them.
Having all of these little, wonderful children around is incredible in so many different ways, but one thing I’ve noticed is that I don’t have the time and space that I used to.
Talking with friends, sipping some tea, and even writing here feels grounding in a way that I welcome…almost like a way to re-find myself in the chaos of managing childhoods.
I both struggle to embrace these moments with my darlings, but also realize that I need time to myself to recharge so that I can be my best self with my kids. I’ve been so surprised how a quick trip out alone can help me feel restored when I see them again, and how I want to hear all about what they’ve been up to while I’ve been away.
How do you feel you’ve been able to manage all that life throws at you? I would love to hear…
