I get quite a few messages from fellow bloggers/mamas asking how I do it all. The stress of it. The competition of it. The need to create ahhhh-mazing content ALL THE TIME.
And to be honest, I’d say like most things, it’s all in moderation. One can’t be perfect at one thing ALL the time. You can’t stress about it. Then what fun is it?
I don’t dress up super cute everyday. I remind myself all the time the reason I do this blog thing and pursue my Instagram so heavily is because I want to. It’s not because of anyone else.
I am passionate about this little space that I’ve created and it’s an outlet for me to be me. Every post or square might come off glamorous or “perfect” but it’s not, folks. Times get hard. Being a mom is hard. Having a miscarriage this year and also losing a beloved pet – it’s easy to tell 2017 to go stuff itself. So I try, with all my might, to just be positive. Everyone, believe it or not, needs positivity. And it’s okay if we all just need a break sometimes.
I read a quote recently that said “Everyone isn’t everything they POST to be.” How true is that?
I’m getting back into yoga and it feels good. I don’t strive to be the greatest yogi ever – I just simply go to breathe, be conscious and to stretch this body of mine. It’s a way to NOT think about all the things that could possibly wear me down. It’s an hour where I don’t have to be committed to a screen. It’s a time where tossing on my new tasc performance duds and putting my hair up is totally acceptable.
I think it’s really important to know your limits. To focus on what’s most important to you. The older I get the more I realize that every minute shouldn’t be taken for granted and that you where you invest your love you invest your time. Both of those things are so equally important to me.
Anywho… I’m done being a bit preachy, but find what recharges you and go do it. If it’s anything athletic or being just plain comfortable (I get it!) – grab some tasc Performance clothes because also #treatyoself 🙂
