Life has been so chaotic lately. From my whirlwind ALDI trip to Chicago....to the beginning of baseball season with Caleb....to surrounding myself with all things Zumba...Life has been crazy!
I'm often asked how I pull everything off. Most of the time I don't actually realize how busy we are or how fast paced our life is. The truth is my husband is one hundred percent ADHD. Combine that with a very active four year old little boy... It's either keep up or get left behind!
There was a time when I got left behind. When I was 80 pounds heavier, I didn't have much of a life. My idea of a great evening was sitting on the couch, watching TV, and eating my favorite comfort foods. We didn't go out with friends often because I shut myself off to everyone outside of my family. I never felt like I had anything in common with others women my age. I kept to myself and I had no hobbies, so in all honesty I didn't have much in common with other women.
After a couple of really hectic weeks, I have been able to step back and examine life now. I lead a very full life, but there is so much joy in it! I have this never ending peace and happiness in my heart because for the first time in my adult life, I am truly living!
I don't put a ton of pressure on myself to be perfect at everything I do. This is real life and perfection just isn't going to happen! I focus on the things that mean the most to me and my family and that's honestly all I can do. We love God and our families, we spend time together, we eat healthy and we stay active. Anything outside of that is just a bonus.
So my calendar may be packed and I've got 50 million things going on....but I do it because I can now.
