Walking #WIP (an update on my break)
Well, that was nice.
The first month of this new year has been slow in the greatest way. Taking an intentional step back from my business in January gave me the chance to take a big deep breath. And it's caused our whole family to look at how we want to spend our time.
Its been healthy.
(If you missed the reason behind my month-long sabbatical, check out my previous blog post.)
Honestly, I loved that the pressure to post to social media was off. I loved that my laptop wasn't the first thing I retreated to when I found a spare second. I love that I had time to clean out and organize my embarrassing Tupperware cabinet and daughter's cluttered room. I love that homeschool wasn't daily interrupted by my to-do list. I loved making time with the stud-hubs a priority in the evenings.
I don't have it figured out yet...this relationship between mom, creator, teacher, business owner, and what else am I forgetting? But I'm so glad you stick around to see me through it. Though one day I may have more space in my day or a team of people to help, I really don't expect to ever "arrive."
See, there's this beautiful thing called process.
That can hold even more significance than the destination.
That our Father seems to treasure deeply.
And I want to keep learning how to delight in too.
I've never been more okay with being a walking work in progress.
Hey! Next t-shirt, maybe? :)
