project enjoy life: pregnancy

August 22, 2012

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.

kicking my feet up

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.

    So glad the pregnancy has made you slow down and think about what you want your life to be like. It’s a wonderful part of pregnancy to really tap into and make use of. I loved it with both of mine
