It has been some time since I last blogged. Since then, I’ve had a baby! She’s a doll. I’d say the transition into motherhood has been made kicking and screaming (more from me, not darling child) but as time passes, as it so sneakily does, I’m recognizing more and more the amazingly precious joy she is and just how much I’m growing myself. As is with most things in life…it’s a process.
A validating and motivating conversation I had this morning reminded me I’m in a phase of life where “getting it all done” is nearly impossible. There’s just not enough time or enough of me. There’s only so much I can do within a day and I have to focus on priorities and doing what I am able to the best of my ability.
And accept that THAT IS OK. Hmm, therein lies the rub, doesn’t it? We justify beating ourselves into the ground for not doing it ALL and doing it PERFECTLY. Whose meter stick are we measuring ourselves up against anyways?
Back to this mornings’ conversation. It was a gentle but very needed reminder of what’s most important. And so, moving forward, as I evaluate how to best use the resources I have to grow and promote Merge Fitness, I invite you to join me on this journey to discovering how to do life WELL with what you have, where you are, with those around you…and learning to lovingly accept yourself in the process.
Plan on being surprised each time I post - it could revolve around a recipe I made over the weekend that was DIVINE, it could be about understanding an aspect of fitness, ie: stretching and why it’s CRUCIAL to your health and the how to’s/how not to’s, it could get all touchy feely and delve into things we don’t often say out loud but think about often like the beating I referred to earlier…why do we think that is ok?? Or, it could be none of that and perhaps just a hysterical story from our life as first time parents.
Who knows. Sky’s the limit! I welcome suggestions.
Welcome to the Merge Fitness Mom Chronicles. I look forward to seeing you again soon.
