I've got a lot on my plate. My mind has been overfed with a heavily packed goulash of thoughts and emotions. Over the last few months, many ingredients had been added into the pot, and as time went on, it began to boil over. I think I went into an emotionally induced coma. I can no longer consume at the same pace. I needed to stop, take a minute to unload, breathe and try again.
I am a very introverted person, I tend to sit back, take things in, and really delve into introspective thoughts about life, family, growth, love, God, faith, change, and how all of those elements come together and impact home. Life truly has been an interesting journey and adventure that I probably wouldn't change. I've learned a lot, laughed a lot, cried a lot, embraced a lot, internalized a lot, endured a lot, prayed a lot and loved a lot, and it hasn't always been "easy". But somehow, someway, God Willing, I make it through, stronger, better, wiser than before... I don't even want any explanations anymore.
Bottom line is, I can't be certain that the ingredients are now perfected, but I know that the foundation for the plate is definitely in place and where there once doubt... There is now hope, faith, and promise. I'm not sharing this to invite questions or even concern for me, I'm sharing this for a few reasons, one, to document life and share my story, two, proof that bloggers are human, and three, a reminder to myself that I'm not Super Woman and THAT is A.O.K.!
I apologize for not being more present lately, but in retrospect, sometimes its better that way.
***I want to thank my mother for helping me see that, in her own way, the featured photos/quotes are ones that my mother shared with me today, even though we hadn't spoken or seen one another since Sunday, she somehow knew just what I've been feeling and just what I needed to hear. Love you Mom.***
Until Next Time,
