So I'm sitting here with so much on my mind. It's been 2 1/2 weeks since my surgery and I've had nothing but time to think about my life, my kids, my husband, this blog, my faith, my talents, etc. I have not been blessed with the talent of writing. I stumble a lot and probably ramble but what are blogs for, right? I have so much I'd like to change. Do you ever just sit and think about things? I just feel like my life is spinning out of control and I'm not sure at all what to do about it. I know I need to get organized but I'm so overwhelmed with the mess that I can't even muster the energy to start. So what did I do? I started a new blog about getting organized thinking that it might help just start my projects.
I have a garage full of thrift store finds that I need to fix up. So what did I do? I started a new blog about thrifty finds. My husband and I started a new blog...I'm actually pretty dang excited about it. But it's just ONE more thing added to my list. I thought that maybe by starting these different blogs I'd be more inclined to actually finish these projects.
This weekend I decided to SIMPLIFY my life. But how? Where do I start? I have so much I want to do with my life so how can I still accomplish them if I simplify my life? Hah! That's my answer. I HAVE to simplify in order to start plugging along with my life's goals. So what are they?
I'm starting with:
My blog(S): No more multiple blogs. I'll keep the one I created with my husband. We are starting that soon. I'm so excited about it. It's called "Happily Ever After...Then What?"
So this is it. You'll be subjected to EVERYTHING...crafts, feelings, thrifty finds, and more importantly my weight loss journey. That's why I call my blog "eclectic." So this blog is now my life in a nutshell - my lifestyle blog if you will.
I'm also going to start making time for ME. If I don't get "me" time I one cranky girl. But how? When do I have the time? I am lucky enough to have an amazing husband who let's me have the time that sometimes I so desperately need. He's amazing. I have a really good friend who said that if there were more husbands like mine the world would be a better place and I think she's right. But I need more...more time and I need to dig a little deeper into ME.
I'm reading a book called "Eat, Pray, Love." And I LOVE this book. It's really made me re-think my life and my relationship with God. It's made me wish that I had a talent for writing but it's not a strength of mine. I love the message of her book. I even went to the library today and got some meditation books. I realized that I need to be more valiant. I need to deepen my relationship with my Heavenly Father. I've heard leaders of our church tell us to meditate but I've never really done it...until now. I'll let you know how that goes.
I'm determined to make my life the life I've always dreamed it could be. I will no longer be afraid of what people think. For too long I think I've let it stop me from doing the things that I REALLY want to.
So, what do you say? Want to come along on the ride with me? It's going to be fun! It's my own "Eat, Pray, Love" journey.
