Lately....


Lately I find myself a little bummed 
because I can't catch up on all your blogs as much as I want to...
I want to read and comment at my leisure but life gets so busy....
I miss my leisure time....

But then I remember my time is no longer mine 
and I have responsibilities that are bigger than myself...
I look at my son sometimes and I am taken aback by the fact that he needs me....
Without me (and of course Mr. Pancakes) he cannot do for himself...
And he is so tiny still...I want to be his everything because this time passes too quickly...

Lately I find myself starring loving into my son's eyes and thinking I could have ten more of him...
Then reality hits and he needs my full undivided attention....

Lately I find myself wanting to snuggle in closer to my husband in the mornings....
Surrounded by love that is stronger every. single. day.

Lately I find myself wanting to take care of me more...
Exercising has become part of my normal routine...and the eating is getting there too...
And #ProjectMilf is becoming something that I am proud to be part of..
And hope will awaken a sleeping lioness that lies in all of us....
To make small and big changes in our lives for a lifetime...

Lately, life is moving too quickly and I want to slow it down just a little bit...
But then I am reminded that time is the only constant thing in life...
And I am comforted that the world is unfolding exactly as it should.



Question of the Day:
Lately, what do you find yourself feeling and thinking?

We just had our first baby in November so I totally relate to what you said. I have these brief moments where I feel a twinge of sadness for the loss of my pre-baby life. But that all disappears when I look over at him. He and this new life are totally my dream come true :)

Lately all I can think is: I need a nap!

I agree with so many of these points. Life IS busy and I am SO tired by the end of the day. Le sigh. I wish I had as much time as I wanted to read other blogs as well. But... I DO like it when I get to read and comment. Like now. xoxo

Beautiful post! Lately, I find myself wondering when I'll be ready to have children, and how I'll balance my own goals and desires once the time comes.

Lately I want to make some money and get a good paying job but I can't find a job that pays me enough to pay daycare and loans *sigh* I am itching to get back to a job that is flexible to be with my kids.

I definitely find myself wishing time would slow down. Trying to constantly take my brand to next level and managing being a mom and wife is a lot to handle. Lately, I find myself dreaming of running around NY discovering fashion and interesting people to write about. It's the one dream that I still want more than anything. Who knows maybe, it'll light a fire under me.

I find myself wishing I had a husband and a child so I could be focused moreso on family than work. It gets lonely especially when all of my friends are moving toward that next stage of life and I'm not.

I can totally believe that you're feeling all this! What a major change is a baby, right??
I can't imagine how it really feels but I hope to follow in a year or so ;)

I'm always feeling and thinking and working on my never ending path to progress! Don't pressure yourself to read/comment on blogs. I've taken the "to do" out of my life and strive "to be"...do what you can when you can and baby comes first from here on out. xo.
