The [Un] Balanced Life

The [Un] Balanced Life

We've been home for almost 2 months now. And figuring out the "new normal" is the current dance. Everything feels a tad chaotic and I am learning [trying] to go with the flow. To embrace the chaos, the disorder, the imbalance of things. 

It's my current season.

As a creative, a dreamer, a seeker of DIY projects, business owner... My brain NEVER shuts off. I am constantly thinking. Constantly wanting to "do" something. Something creative. But I have a sweet little boy and an awesome little girl who need a lot of that attention right now, and I wouldn't trade it.

For over 10 years I have owned and operated my own business. For almost 8 years, I juggled working at our church. And for the past 3 years we have homeschooled and now recently adopted. Life is full.

And in all of those years, life has never been "balanced" or "down to a science" and flowed smoothly. It has always been bumpy as we would go in and out of seasons. Even now as I learn a new "normal" I know it will be bumpy and messy and unorganized as I try and organize it and clean behind a little tornado... And really, honestly; "the brutal truth? There is no such thing as balance. All of the things we juggle collide in a thing called 'life' and life is messy. Absolutely and beautifully messy. [And I'm learning to] EMBRACE IT."

Embracing the chaos, the impromptu unplanned moments is what 2018 is going to be about. But in that, is a LOT of freedom that I am SO thankful and excited to have and explore.
