It was 3 am on a Tuesday morning when I looked at my than 4 month old baby and said I can’t do this any more. I though of my wonderful boyfriend and though I can’t do this to him any more. Out of work, lack sleep, no time for me, and fighting Postpartum Depression, life was in a downward spiral. Finally I walked into the bathroom, looked into the mirror and said “I can’t do this to you any more.” Looking in the mirror I saw everything that I wasn’t and wanted to be slipping away and the person looking back was a stranger.
Okay, so maybe it wasn’t on a Tuesday, but it was 3am when I realized that I needed to make a change. It was time to reinvent myself physically, mentally, and spiritually. It was time to stop waiting for the ‘right time’ to do things and instead start perusing my goals, opening my own doors, and see where that takes me. This blog will be about goal setting, finding the joy in life, my rants, and endless chatter about my darling baby (Bug), my supportive boyfriend (R), and my slightly abnormal but always hilarious kitties (Conrad and Sophie). This is my journey through life and I hope you come along with me.
So, who is this person on the other side of the computer screen?
Well, I am a lover of lists, traveling, kissing small babies (usually mine since most people don’t like a stranger kissing their little one…), photography, consuming vast amounts of coffee, and reading. A bit of a bore, maybe. Sarcastic, who me ;). A constant contradiction, you got me there after all I hate the rain, but I love living in Seattle. Happy, usually. On an adventure, always.
