  • Normalcy!

    If you’re always trying to be normal, you’ll never know how amazing you can be. 

    -Maya Angelou- 

    These past months have been crazy and not a part of society’s normal way of living. Crazy that my four-year-old son is getting used to or should I say now knows that before we get out of the car he needs to put on a mask. Never thought I would see the day. Crazy that a part of our normal for the past four years has been with Donald Trump as our president. (lol, that’s a whole different topic) I am truly still trying to adjust to this new way of living and it is so much more abnormal than it is normal.

    I am at the end of my run-in school and the plans that I once had in place for my future have seemed to change so drastically. I am in love with the fact that everything for school is mostly online, but I’d planned for Bailyr to be in school. That would’ve given me more time to focus and actually work on my own brand. But, I would much rather him be at home with me, rather than me worrying about him possibly getting sick by one of the other children at school. For some reason, that gives me anxiety and I am just not ready to take that step.  How are you all handling that?

     

     

    What I will say though, is my family has seen and come in contact with a lot of blessings and new normals due to this pandemic.  And yes, it’s all LEGAL (lol). So, this post for me is simply to put into perspective that our usual normal is great and something that we know. But it’s the abnormal that sometimes bring about the best and deepest change. I am usually completely fine with being at home, but now that I am being forced in a way, I am so uncomfortable. But, in this time I must say, I have been able to strengthen as well as rebuild my relationship with family and God.

    This uncomfortable space at times is so quiet, but the growth is so LOUD! Whereas this may not be the same situation in every household, the energy can be just as positive. Try to focus on the good and the growth that’s possible within your walls. Allow the quiet places in your life to manifest positive and peaceful vibes. I hope that this time is being grasped and taken advantage of in your home and I pray for nothing, but peace and positive light in the lives of you all. This post was a bit different, but I felt it was needed. Everyone can use a bit of encouragement sometimes, right?

     

     

     

    Life will not always make you comfortable, but it’s the uncomfortable moments that truly present the opportunity for you to live!

      We all need encouragement. The world does enough to discourage us every day.
