But, as good as I was physically feeling..mentally, I knew I wasn't as good as I should be. Don't get me wrong, I'm not talking post partum or upset with my "new life"..not in the slightest! Instead, I was just feeling a tug from my " old" self, it was calling and begging for some attention. The last 6 weeks I have been full on, 100% baby brain, which is what I should be but, I also needed a reprieve. A break..a piece of normalcy..I just didn't know what! Eventually I sat down and discussed this with Adam. I was desperate to do something every day that got my mind going again. I was craving a project, a job..a slice of time for myself. I felt flustered and desperate for ideas and then Adam said the simplest of thoughts that made everything click. All he needed to tell me was this, "you just need to start. You just need to do something" and, just like that.. It changed my thinking.
Funny how the obvious just sometimes needs to be heard, isn't it? Need something to write about on your blog? Give yourself projects! Teach yourself something new every week, challenge yourself. Pick up your camera and work on your skills, photograph the every day, just like you used to!
And with that, I've been creating lists of things I want to experiment with and challenge myself with. I will be sharing all my ideas and challenges here on the blog this coming year, and I do hope that, if anything, you all can take away something..anything...from each post. To begin, starting this Sunday I will be posting a new column on here entitled "This Week on the Farm", a weekly photo wrap up of the comings and goings of our life here on the farm. I do hope you enjoy it!!
Until Sunday, keep warm my friends!!
