and we are still transitioning.
For some reason I had (unrealistic) expectations that things would slow down after our sweet little Gray was born, or that life as a family of 4 would fall right back into place as it was when we were a family of 3. I often believed that after my pregnancy, I would regain all of my energy and my body would bounce right back into balancing on my hands. Then we decided to move into a larger home (which I am so grateful for) and I felt like things would simmer down once the move was complete and all of our belongings were into place. Wrong again.
Why did I believe these things? Because if I didn't, I'm sure I would have scared myself out of moving forward. I would have 2nd guessed decisions and stayed with what was comfortable. Our mind has a way of giving us beliefs (true or false in the moment) so that we can push through the hard stuff, so that we can keep focused and so that we can keep growing.
I have called this TRANSITION. And while I'm ready for life to slow down a bit, I trust that all of these major changes are part of the process. That if we stop transitioning (in any way, shape or form) we stop growing. This, for me, has taken 6+ months of solid work and acceptance and to be honest, I'm still working on it.
Life changes, it gets uncomfortable, it gets scary, but DAMN it's all worth it. This life is joyous and this life is a blessing.
So please keep letting yourself, your business, your relationships and your life change. And then give yourself a little "thank you" when you come out stronger on the other side.
