Do you ever have those seasons where you are going and going and then you just want to stop and do nothing?
I feel like I am there and I need to pull myself out of it. We are moving. I am so thankful to have a contract on this house and one on a new house. After the emotional tug of preparing the house to sell, getting contracts and losing them, having my husband travel, and sick kids…I just want to stop and breath for a bit.
Breathing room to me is always being outside or creating.
In all honesty, I have projects I want to do. I want to enjoy my little family and create. The list of fun things, like finishing our school year well and starting life in our new house, is weighing heavily on my mind. I want to buy a bed for our foster care room. I want to decorate the new house to be warm and inviting for new neighbors and children that need a safe haven.
The truth is I am not there yet, and there are steps that need to still be taken to get me there. So, as much as I want to rest and to start living on our new path….my living requires still being present here. So, I will continue to fight the fight in my head of what I want verse what I need and act on starting to pack.
The fun stuff will come, but I am still in the fight to get through it all. I miss my blog, and I have great plans to show and reveal more of all my projects and plans for the new house. Thank you for being the most amazing readers and caring about each little step we are on.
So, what about you!? Do you have a battle going on in your head too?
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!
I love this one. I am facing this battle in my head right this very moment. We are not moving (not yet anyway haha), but life is crazy busy and I would love nothing more than to go sit myself down on the couch and do nothing, but that is unreasonable, and in reality would only make me happy short term. I need to be busy, making bags, or working on projects with the boys… sometimes you just feel like you’re on overload! Praying for you. Much Love and BIG hugs, Anna
I love you Anna!!!! Thank you for helping me to not feel crazy or alone! We can do this with God’s strength!
You know I have had a huge battle going on! I think this winter has just lasted a little too long for us. I also feel like I have so much going on that I can’t really get a handle on ANYTHING! Hang in there my dear, it will all get done…eventually.

Hang in there, Erica! Because I teach, that battle wages from August to May in my head every year… stuff I gotta do/need to do, vs all that creative/DIY energy just dying to bust out. There’s only so many hours in the day, you know? Try to breathe through these times, knowing they’re growing you for what’s in store and your “fun” stuff will be all the more so because all the other stuff will be behind you.
Love you, girl!
Heidi! I love you!! Is it time for our next hang out yet!?! Thank you for your constant encouragement!
