Earlier this week, I was doing a bit of blog reading, and as I caught up on Shannon's blog, her 'Lately' post really struck a chord with me.
In the recent months, I've been trying to do more event/project/recipe/DIY/giveaway based posts, rather than bore all of you with the nitty gritty details of 'a day in my life.' But, I'll admit it, lately I haven't had much time other than to just live according to the daily grind. Maybe it's a rut, but I feel like getting it all out right here might help me get it off my chest, and move on to bigger and better things!
Lately, I've been chugging along with my business, keeping my big clients satisfied, and working to sustain all of the responsibilities that I've already committed to under the 'BOLT' title. I wish I could say that there are also a handful of new and exciting things going on in that slice of my life, but, the truth is, I just haven't had the time (or energy) to grow this business the way I had hoped I would by mid 2012. I have so many great ideas swirling around in my head, but I have been struggling to find the time, and sometimes, the motivation, to kick off some new initiatives. I know the time will come, and I'm excited to be able to say that I have a call scheduled for tomorrow with a new prospect, but it's just been a topic that has been weighing on my mind of late.
Lately, my life has been full of babies: new babies, baby presents, baby showers and baby visits. While I surely have no reason to complain about any of these joyful happenings, I would be lying if I said this current state hasn't given me an awful case of 'the fever.' I feel like I've struggled so much with knowing when the 'right time' would come for us to start our family. It's like I was waiting for God to drop something straight from the heavens that read: "OK, it's time now!' But, that's just not life. I've been trying to keep a level head, to not let it stress me out, and to accept that God has a plan, but, full disclosure, this is much easier said than done. Lucky for me, I get to help welcome four new babies into the world in June, and although this may only cause 'the fever' to intensify, I am over the moon excited to meet each and every one of these beautiful babes!
Are you getting tired of hearing my woes yet? Good, I am, too. But hey, this is my blog, and it was just time for me to air it all out.
On a more personal note, I'd like to thank all of the special women in my life that have been listening to me babble, cheering me on, and just really being there for me lately. Above all else, I know I have the most incredible girl friends and I feel truly blessed.
