Well, friends. It’s been a while, but here we are. It’s April 2017, and somehow, this post will be my first of the year! Life is crazy, but I refuse to let the dreams that I’ve had linger in the back on my mind any longer. I want this blog to be something that I keep up on consistently… that has just been a little tricky lately.
Do you ever have those points in your life when you have so many big responsibilities throughout the week that you forget about slowing down, taking a deep breath, and reminding yourself to take it easy for once? That’s been me for the past 3 months. Ever since 2017 began, I feel like I have hit the ground running and haven’t really stopped since. But at the same time, I feel like there are so many things that I’ve been neglecting. Yes, I have been working full time (40+ hours every week, with kids) and have been planning a wedding when I find the time, but I feel like, when I do have that time to just relax, I just sit around with dreams in my head of where I want to be, forgetting that I have the power to actually do something to work towards my dream.
My absolute dream would be to live a life where I can work from home and blog or have a YouTube channel to bring in money. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I totally love the kids that I work with. They may be crazy, but they are the best. But there’s something really intriguing to my introverted heart about being able to work from the comfort of my own home. Now, I also know that it’s something that won’t happen overnight, and that I will have to work really hard for that to even become close to a possibility, but even just the thought is so exciting to me.
Right now, I’m on vacation in Myrtle Beach, soaking up some sun and spending time with family. It has been such a nice break from all of the stressors of life, but I have also been using it as a time to refocus and figure out my game plan for what I’m going to do when I come back from this little hiatus. So, I have my new, pretty, aqua blue spiral notebook in hand, ideas in mind, and a renewed spirit of, “Hey, girl. This is your dream. Let’s do this!”
Sorry for being absent for so long. This time, I promise it’s not for long! Look out for more fun stuff coming soon.
