1 Girl + 4 Boys = Fashionably Dirty // by Stephanie Dyane
Taking time to breath // It’s the little things
Life has been a constant GO GO GO lately with the hustle of business, work, family and summer activities for the boys. I’m sure many mommies out there can relate to the hectic schedules we take on as women. It might just be me, but I tend to worry a lot rather than enjoying life and focusing on the amazing things happening around me.
Lately, I’ve found myself getting caught up in the daily worries of what was and what could be, rather than was is and what’s now. Being a pregnant mommy is amazing and there is so much to be grateful for as my body is a home (or oven as Chris likes to call it) for our THIRD son. He will be here in September and I can’t believe that I will be the mother of three boys! Boys that will be MEN someday! Lord, I pray that we raise them well… (and there I goagain, me worrying… haha).
Pregnancy is an amazing time in a woman’s life and I’ve tried hard to focus on my body and baby and enjoy every moment of this miraculous process. Sometimes I get sidetracked or pulled off course. I’ve strayed from focusing on what’s most important and I haven’t been taking time to breath and enjoy the little things and take care of myself. (How’s that for confession time?!?) Personal blogging has been put on the very back burner and that’s made me a bit sad because it’s such a fun and in the moment way of sharing what’s going on behind the scenes. We live this crazy fun life and as we get older and the kids get older, it’s amazing how fast time really flies. I know I sound like your grandma saying that, but it’s SO true! Billy will be two soon and Kole will be 13! Where did the time go?
We are given a limited amount of days on this planet Earth so each day should be worry free, full of love, forgiveness, gratitude, honesty and sincerity. When we stray from those things, it’s urgent that we bring ourselves back to center and take time to breath. It’s the little things at the end of the day that make us smile.
