I’m so glad that January is over, because, it’s been a hard month. I’ve started many posts this month, some filled with inspiration that I hope to finish. But, most of them were complaints of everything going wrong so far in 2017. They were totally pity seeking, so I decided they were best unpublished.
I’d like to share when we’re in the midst of hard times, but that’s not exactly what this blog is for. I hope you know that things aren’t always sunshine and unicorns over here. We go through quite a bit over here and it isn’t always easy.I’ve written about Jordan’s tough schedule and motherhood hardships before.
I really just wanted to drop in and say, “Hey, how are you? I miss you guys” I don’t normally go longer than a week without blogging and I hope that this doesn’t happen again.
I’ve been pretty sick the past couple weeks and am working hard on caring for myself so that I can start feeling more like myself soon. So, although I won’t be blogging here as frequently for a bit, I’ll stop in a couple times a week. And my blog posts might look a little different.
This has been a wakeup call for me and I’m hoping to continue my journey of self-care and wellness even more this year.
I’m not really sure what all is going on in terms of my health. I went to see my doctor yesterday with my long list (something doctors don’t typically love) but, he sat down and dissected every issue I was having. I had some blood work done yesterday, so I’m hoping it’s just a vitamin deficiency of some type. On top of that I’ve been having quite a bit of upper back pain #ruby #poorposture. I’ve been getting back to yoga this year even with my sprained wrist (seriously) my sweet instructor limits the planks and downward dog.
I feel like I’m falling apart a little, but I know that it’s important to care for myself well. I’m actually feeling less anxious and more ready to actually do something and reset and start over.
I’ll keep you all updated.
Again, I’m sorry that I won’t be updating this space over here as often since life has changed a bit. I think it’s important to value my wellbeing right now, but I’m going to be updating a couple times a week over here. Because, this blog is also a part of that.
