To be honest I am still recovering from this past weekend. My husband and I had a little get away to Austin alone without our children and I feel so behind on all of my regular mommy duties! Well to be fair, we only lasted one night instead of the intended two. It felt so good to be alone without interruptions, but we missed our kids and came back earlier than expected haha.
While being back in Austin, TX I thought a lot about what I wanted for myself and for my blog for the remainder of the year. It’s been difficult these past few weeks adjusting. Between juggling a full time career, a newborn, a toddler, and now more than ever investing more time on the blog I feel overwhelmed at times.
I try to remind myself that I started this blog as a way to have fun, and while it may still require a lot of work I have to remember to only continue if I truly enjoy it.
With that being said, I think it’s important to “find the light at the end of the tunnel” in any situation life brings you. I remind myself that this is truly fun and that it keeps me motivated and inspired. When I start to feel this way I always have to reevaluate where my mindset is. I seek help from uplifting podcasts, positive people, and most importantly love from my family.
So whatever situation you may find yourself in lately, I hope that you can find the inspiration to keep going and remember that your mindset is usually the light at the end of every tunnel.
Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope you make it a great week!
