Please welcome Katie. I invited her here to chat about CHANGE as her change’perience is one Ive NOT experienced.
And yet? I can still entirely relate. Change be universal…
When I saw Carla was looking for guest bloggers to talk about change I immediately jumped at the chance.
I mean really.
If there’s anything I know these days it’s change.
Then I thought it over a little more.
I wanted to write this poetic post, filled with metaphors and nuggets of genius but then my kids woke up, the buzzer on the dryer went off and I got real.
As a newly minted mom of two, life is good. Crazy but good.
So to give you an idea of just how life has changed, I thought we would play a game of Less and More.
Shall we begin?
Time for leisurely browsing or reading
(fewer) new clothes in my closet
Time to myself
(fewer) leisurely long runs whenever I want them
Fear of change
Money in my pocket
Snuggles and cuddles
Kisses and hugs
Smiles and laughs
“I love you”
Confidence in who I am
And the list of “More” goes on and on.
A friend of mine told me before E was born that parenting is the…and I quote “toughest job you’ll ever love” and he couldn’t be more right.
Every day is different, new challenges, new victories and a lot of change but at the end of the day, it all pales in comparison to overwhelming sense of purpose I feel.
This is exactly what I’m supposed to be doing right now.
It’s not always easy, it’s not always fun but it feels right.
So while I’m changing diapers and making bottles, I’ll continue to learn to embrace change.
It’s done me well so far.
