Life Currently...

Friday, May 11, 2012

I was inspired to start a {Life Currently} series after seeing several of them on Kelli's Blog and thought it was a great idea.

Sometimes I feel like my life is one big story where each day is a another page turned and the plot takes numerous turns by the milliseconds. There really is never a dull moment and the hours seem to be slipping away from me before I can even truly understand it. These past two months have been eventful to say the very least. Then again, this year has been damn-near-crazy-eventful!

  We finally have fulltime custody of my Fiances kids which is a blessing in itself. I mean, thank the lord as we have been praying for this for years. I've always known this day would come and I love every moment of being a stepmother to these amazing boys {I love you Dylan & Dominick}. They are pretty awesome and I never thought I could love them as much as I do...especially for not being their actual birth mother. Since getting them, Babylove and I have been in full gear around the clock with getting them enrolled in school, library trips, swimming, homework duty, meals, tennis lessons, and even babylove teaching the boys to skateboard. My nieces Alexis & Jayden are in heaven now that they all get to play together, and wake up rather early on the weekends. I mean 6am on a Saturday? We are definitely on our way to getting outnumbered by the kids! lol

 I got to celebrate my twenty-seventh birthday with my loved ones this past weekend and I must say, it was by far the best birthday. I woke up to enormous amounts of hugs and kisses followed by a gourmet seafood lunch prepared by an amazing chef {my mother}. We all watched movies and then headed to the tennis courts to get a rather funny and entertaining family game in. It was most definitely a sight to see being that not one of us actually really knows how to play tennis...properly that is! LOL Ahhh the memories I will never forget.


THINKING ABOUT - Time Management. In between being a full time mother, my relationship, family, friendships, household duties, and launching a business, my time management has been rather challenging. Hence the extremely lack in posts lately. This is something I have struggled with all my life and am really hard on myself about this subject. In all honesty, I had a bit of a breakdown yesterday. I feel like I am not doing enough and I need to be doing more...but there just isn't enough hours in the day. How can I give 100% of me to every aspect of my life & business with out falling short in other areas? I am such a perfectionist and feel really strongly about being an active mother and  successful business woman...and its so hard to balance it all out. I know it's still all new on both aspects and this is transitional until it all balances itself out...but I can't help but feel like "Am I ever going to figure this time management part out?" I am grateful for everything that I have as I am truly blessed, and all I can do is leave it in Gods hands and pray that he continues to give me the strength and guidance.

WATCHING - OWN {Oprah Winfrey Network}. I am a semi-obsessed with watching several different shows on this network. Lifeclass {Teaching you to be a better you}, Masterclass {Learning from those who have mastered being successful}, & Next Chapter {Learning about life and the world from another aspect}. All of them is so thought provoking and nourishing to my soul. I am in a very spiritual place and feel an innate sense to progress from the inside out. Maybe it's just me, but watching these series has opened my views on my thinking in many ways and it truly is something to watch. If you have a chance please do yourself a favor and check it out. 

EATING - Semi Healthy. I have been cooking a lot more, but with the boys being here they tend to like kid friendly food {homemade pizza, hamburgers, pasta, etc} which by the time I'm done making theirs, I'm too tired to make mine.. so I nibble on whatever I made for them and always add a salad. I am trying to stay away from carbs to continue to lose weight but for some reason I've been semi addicted to the Rold Gold pretzel sticks lately. Hmm hopefully that craving subsides soon!

FEELING -  Gratitude. Towards everything good and bad in my life. It's all part of the plan and only until you're fully grateful for what has been bestowed upon you, can you really receive anything more. At least, that is what I believe and practice on a daily basis. 

I would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions of how you handle time management or leave links of your life currently posts!
