What I’ve been doing. It’s nothing really. Mostly, I am in the thick of training. 15-20 hours per week right now. Some weeks, those hours are unattainable. And I have to learn to be OK with that. When you are a mom, it’s just not possible to fit in a 5-hour training day. So I’ve learned to be efficient and effective with the time I have to give. My goal this year is to do well, really well. Qualify for some things. And with that comes the obligation to train outside of my comfort zone. To make it hurt. To push a little more.
I think with that being said, my goal this year is do more of that. Push myself to go beyond what is comfortable. Whether it be with photography, my training, my faith, etc. To travel to a place of unrest and uncertainty. To challenge myself in every sense of the word, physically, mentally, spiritually. I am tired of trying to fit into one mold, or, be apart of another. The biggest stride I’ve made in the last couple of months is being at peace with the fact I am a stay-at-home mom. When people ask me what I do, I respond with, “a mom.” And I end it at that. Because in the past I’ve wanted to include so many more things to make myself feel significant. In the past I’ve worked. This year I am in new territory and it’s taken some time to get used to. But at the beginning and end of each day I am a mom and a wife. All the other stuff is so temporary. And it really doesn’t matter.
So I’ve just been immersing myself with things. Sucking in all there is in the moment. Learning.
And I created this space to do just that. To not be a place of one thing or the other. But rather a collection of things that encompass me.
So thanks for visiting.
