My blog has been sorely neglected, much like my self care, the last few months. I’m going to change both of those things right now. Every day this month I will write on my blog. My goal is to get things flowing again and reclaim this space as I focus on doing things that nuture myself.
I have always been the type of person who enjoys being busy, always undertaking projects, but as a mom I lose my Self in the mess of life and all the things I have to get done. I need to focus on those moments and rituals that I enjoy and that I do for the sake of my own happiness and wellbeing.
I didn’t think of this topic until just now, so I didn’t intentionally do something for me. We did go to the farmer’s market, which is a trip I enjoy despite the toll it takes on my energy. We shopped for good food, visited with familiar faces, and ran into some unexpected people, too. I treated us to pho and yam fries, not AIP foods. I told Wallace to get up off the floor at least 30 times and stated for the 100th time that I need a collapsable shopping cart.
We came back home, I got some school done, my mom made dinner, we went for a walk, and then it was bedtime. I’ve 0got to get back o school work and hopefully have an early bedtime tonight!
