It’s been several weeks since the ‘Living Fit Mommy’ blog has received any of my attention and I must admit, up front, that I currently post content for more than one site. This blog was always meant to be the one with more personal insight into me as a married, mother of two, with a strong desire to have the body of goddess (no, I’m not kidding about that last point either. I literally do about 1000 sit-ups a day and exercise more than I likely should in an effort to reach my personal physical goal of being “too sexy”).
But, egoism aside, and more seriously than that, I write this blog because I need a release from the daily dial of being completely overwhelmed by this world of mine. It’s a state that I have found myself in more often than not over the last couple of months—due in large part to dealing with the death of a very close relative—and I could not juggle it all. I needed, as they say, “a minute”.
I’m not Superwoman, by any stretch, and my faith, patience, convictions, and personal views on life, love, and family took quite a hit after losing a loved one so dear and I struggled mightily to find my center again.
That’s the edited truth of it.
Thankfully, my foundation wasn’t built on sand, but on God, and that’s a hard foundation to obliterate without decidedly making the decision to forsake all I know and walk away from His love completely.
And that, my friends, is something I will never choose to do.
That said, I’ve had to breathe and give myself a break from bearing my all here for a few weeks because, plain and simply, I couldn’t handle the candid chatter without falling to pieces at my laptop.
But, I will be making a more concerted effort over the next few weeks to be more present here if for no other reason than I’m ready to try and come back to some semblance of normalcy in my creative life, too.
So bear with me and stick with me, I’m finding my way back.
