There was one season of my life where I was working three jobs, married, blogging, in the middle of a constant home renovation and trying to stamp out the feelings that come with infertility. It was too much. At the time, all I could think about was “Am I busy enough yet? Is everyone happy with me yet?” But when things started to crash and burn, I was forced to stop and take stock of what was going on inside of me. I was chasing a life that other people expected of me instead of chasing a life I wanted. A thriving life.
Our world is full of so many opinions and expectations. Every day our energy, talents, emotions and time can feel pulled in seventy different directions. It’s only too easy to lose yourself to the static and forget to look inward. We forget one very important fact.
