Over the past week or so, I’ve been thinking alot about balance.
Is there any such thing?
We have been pretty productive during this season.
Marriage. 4.5 Children + 1 Bonus Baby (through foster care). Home Manager. Working Part-time.
Honestly, there isnt a lot of me time. I love the idea of self-care but when the rubber hits the road, I have to make the best of our situation. While I would love to go get a pedicure and spend some time alone, honestly I have loads of laundry that need to be washed, dryed and folded so the best that I can do is listen to one of my favorite podcast and read a chapter in a book while I wait for my children at baseball practice.
I know it won’t always be like this but for right now I have to grab the moments when and where I can. So to all my mommy friends, take the little moments until the big ones are available.

Today I did something new~I attended a Writer’s Guild at my local library!
This was new for me b/c I have never physically gathered w/other writers to share my passion for writing, ideas and my struggles.
This experience was so inspiring! I loved to hear about the great literary ideas of others as well as get some tips perfecting my craft.
Soooo…starting next week I will be stretching myself~literally. I will be doing something called “Flash Fiction” Month. Every week, for the month of June, I will be posting a fictional piece to expand my writing more in the creative, spontaneous sense.
These posts will be a way for me to test out my skills in the Christian Fiction genre as well as get me out of comfort zone of writing inspirational posts.
Let’s get ready for something new!!!! I intend to put myself in an uncomfortable position to cause growth…and maybe awaken a new thing in my writing.
What about you…what’s your something new???
