Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with how much my life has changed and how it just keeps changing when I’m not quite ready. Lately, when that anxiety and those overwhelming thoughts take over, I’m trying so hard to lean into it all. Allowing my self to feel all those feelings instead of pushing them away is hard and messy but the other side is where the magic is. When our emotions are validated and supported, we can move on to the good stuff in our lives...mothering a toddler has taught me so many techniques for managing my own emotions ya’ll. Yes...I don’t get to sleep in anymore and I don’t see my friends as much as I’d like and I’m always tired and my house is constantly dirty and on and on. But you guys...there is so much beauty and growth and love and joy in this wild time of extreme growth. I’m so thankful for all of it, even when it’s all really hard.
