Hi everyone. It’s that time again for Sunday Lately with the Blogger Tribe. AND…I’m definitely hanging out with the late part of this week. Please tell me I’m not the only person who feels like the weeks are flying by this year.
SUNDAY LATELY #58: Creating, Finding, Switching, Forgetting, and Craving
Creating lots of sewing projects last week and this week. I feel like the week is disappearing with me thinking it’s still Tuesday on Friday. I created this gorgeous Swoon Harriet for Pattern Revolution in honor of my great-grandmother, Hattie. You can read all about it here. I am amazed at how much she has influenced my life and decisions. I miss her terribly; however, she’s still here with me in spirit.
I’m finding that my kids are growing up way to fast. When they were little, I wished that they would be a little older. The stress of trying to balance everything (kids are 14 months apart) seemed like too much. Now, I’m finding myself wishing they were little again. The twins are potty training like champions. My oldest is writing his name and reciting his alphabet like he’s known it all his life. It’s amazing to realize that the older I become the more I’m finding myself being nostalgic.
Switching my mindset to positive things has been hard this week. There are a lot of negative influences around me, personally. Trying to keep things positive this week has been really, really hard. However, I know that switching my behavior and environment will prevent the negative influences from being in control.
I keep forgetting that I’m not alone. Being a stay-at-home mom is an interesting thing. Sometimes, I feel alone in the world. It’s like being isolated without trying to be isolated. I’ve been shown numerous times over the last week that I’m not alone, that I am worthy, and that I should really stop forgetting these things. Forgetting who you are, as a parent, can be easy to do. Remember that it’s ok to have a down day. Forgetting the unimportant things is important. Be yourself…move forward.
I have been craving sushi all week long. I have indulged in my cravings. Sushi…..yummy! See now, I want more. My other craving this week has been Starbucks. I’m trying very hard to avoid this craving. All the calories!! However, this week, exercise wise, has been good. Gosh, I need a Starbucks and some more sushi!
Thanks for joining me this week for Sunday Lately. I hope you’ll enjoy the content this week.
