project enjoy life: pregnancy
this pregnancy has been so good for me. it’s helped me slow down a bit. and really start thinking about what i want my life to look like. i have been rather introspective lately. looking inward and just thinking about life. where i have been and where i am going.
i was talking to a new friend last night and i was thinking about how far i have come in three short years. i don’t even feel like the same person anymore. i have been on quite the journey, and the best part is that it is still only the beginning. it doesn’t even seem possible that my life was in a million pieces only three years ago.
my dear friends, you can put the pieces of your broken life back together again. i am living proof. i never imagined myself in this space, healed and whole.
this whole revelation has had me a little more thankful than normal. really taking everything in and just well, thankful that my life is so darn beautiful. i feel like i am actually able to stop and actually enjoy this time. which is quite shocking for me, since i usually don’t enjoy being pregnant.
i have been kicking my feet up more. i have been playing with new paintings. i have been recovering furniture and buying new pillows. i have been thinking about writing a book. even more, i have started on a book proposal (taking my time and really doing it well). i have been getting together with some of my favorite women. i have been making boundaries for my heart that feel oh so good.
i feel the best i have felt in a very long time. at peace. settled. hopeful. renewed. and healthy emotionally.
