Life has been busy, but I feel ready to come back to writing, reflecting and sharing. It is always about balance and finding a rhythm and routine when raising a family of five. And like many of you said in one of my posts, it is also important to take time for me, for self-care and writing is a huge part of that for me. I rarely blogged this winter and even stopped taking so many pictures and videos of the kids. For a while all I was thinking about was all that I wasn’t doing right or wasn’t doing with and for them and was trying so hard to try and do everything perfectly, I feel like I got into a depression, which is so unlike me. Normally I focus on the good and positive. I realize not taking photographs, writing, reflecting, sharing and connecting led me to a pretty dark place.
Life isn’t easy (especially with a family) and I know it can never be perfect, so blogging is my way to celebrate the good, positive and simple joys that I find in life, whether it is in homeschooling, food or a recipe, something my girls said or did, a photograph of nature, an uplifting song or quote, a lesson learned in life. All of those things are like food for my soul and spirit.
A lot has changed in our life since I was last actively blogging, which makes me think of starting over somewhere new. I’ve changed, the kids have changed A LOT. Life is different. I am not sure yet whether I am going to stay here in this space and continue writing my journey or start over some place new. I think it might feel good to take on a new fresh start and give birth to a new self in a new space, a space still filled with all the things I love, like my kids and family, recipes, quotes, songs, thoughts, life lessons, spirituality.
I am also really thinking of sharing more about our Waldorf-inspired homeschooling. Autumn’s work is so amazing and I really have felt that it is a gift to be shared for those who are interested in this approach to homeschool. She does the most amazing pictures, poems and drawings. I feel like life is a lot more focused on the homeschooling than recipes now and that is maybe something new I have to share with the world. I just don’t have the time I used to to be in the kitchen with the homeschool planning and running after our busy toddler.
For now I am still thinking and planning, but just know that I miss all of you too and no matter where I go a big part of the blogging is sharing and connecting with you sweet souls.
If you feel inspired to leave a comment, I would love to hear from you!
Love & Light,
