Just spending some time reflecting this morning. With change comes a bit of loss, and I am feeling some of those losses. Not in a bad way, just missing my people and my places and my coffee shop. Missing my moments of solitude in these woods in this photo. I will find more people and more places and a new coffee shop. I will find pockets of solitude and new woods. I have moved a lot in my life and experienced a lot of change, but this is the first as a mom. Being a mom comes with its own weird isolation. I LOVE being a mom (and I wouldn't change a thing about it), but it is that struggle of never being alone yet often feeling lonely. This is real life, y'all. Feeling the feelings is good because it allows us to work through them. If you are in a life transition or change and feeling the feelings of it, please know you are not alone. Today I choose to find joy in the small things. Today I choose to spend my energies celebrating new opportunities instead of lamenting old ones. And most of all, today I allow myself to feel the feelings, and then release them because I know God has brought us here for a purpose. And I am grateful and excited for it.
