What am I trying to accomplish? I have had to ask myself that question so many times lately. Whether it has to do with my children (shoutout to Barry, almost 2 and Milo, almost 3 months!), or my marriage, or my writing and professional life, that is the question that seems to lead all of my decisions. Don’t worry, even though I’ve taken a little bit of a blog hiatus, I’m still here, writing every single day. I’m still being me. What I realized, though, is that I was placing so much value in whether or not I checked something off of a list (such as a blog post), that I undervalued myself in the ways that really mattered. So I took a little break and I collected my value from somewhere else. Before, I can honestly say I had no idea what I wanted to accomplish. I say this because being a lover of so many things can sometimes make it difficult to know what direction to walk in. So instead, I’ve been thinking about what is most important to me. My family. What I want to accomplish is something that stems from there. I want to be my best self for them, I want to provide everything I can for them, and I want to keep writing. Right now, my notebooks, this blog, and the new podcast are what I feel will help me do those things. I’m so excited to see what happens next!
Speaking of podcasts, Joy, my youngest sister, and myself are starting an extension of this blog! It’s going to be a podcast where we talk about all the things! We’re definitely going to get this blog up and running, but the two will sort of go hand-in-hand, which is going to be a lot of fun and create accountability, and let’s be honest, we both need it! Stay on the lookout for updates about our podcast! Also follow us on Instagram @someadultingrequired and on Snapchat @adultingish ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
