Things are really changing around me

‘ve been working out. As in, squats and digging and raking and hauling dirt– working in the garden of course! Things have been busy here outdoors and around that it seems lately I’ve been neglecting sitting down sharing my thoughts. There are a lot of thoughts and reflections I’ve been sharing with friends but I thought I should of course share them with you.

Something has happened these past few months, a big shift not in just career priorities but mindset. I’m attributing it to age. I’m feeling more present and intentional and focused on where I am and how I want to spend my time which is living life – gardening, hosting, having meals with friends and serving in areas that I know God has called me. That can be at home helping my husband at times, or with organizations I believe in.

The vanity metrics and building and hustling isn’t a priority of mine anymore on the social media posts or blog. Other areas in my life are my focus and I guess you can say I’m no longer defining myself as a career driven woman, at least not for now. And yes, I do feel incredibly fortunate and blessed to say that. I don’t say it boastfully because I can quickly shift my decision by next quarter and so many things can change in life, or – when things around me slow down. Or maybe something else sparks my interest and I do that for a while. Oh the life of a creative and a woman who likes to find new home projects to tackle.

I’m just glad to feel like I’ve arrived in a comfortable stage in my life or at least season. I don’t look forward to the future as much as I did when I was in my twenties because it’s here now, I like where I’m at, what I’m doing and the friends around me. To be honest I don’t want anything to change and I know it will and so I just live in the moment as much as I can with gratitude.
