Embracing the Season

Monday, January 16, 2017

I read a lot of mom blogs. Like A LOT. I love hearing (reading) about day-to-day life and watching their kids grow up and being a fly on the wall in another person's life. One thing I notice is a recurrent theme to attempt to embrace the season they are in. For wives to embrace the season before they are blessed with kiddos, for new mamas to make the most of their sleepless newborn lives, and for moms of littles to enjoy the crazy chaos of the mess their toddlers create.

So instead of allowing myself to feel like I'm on the outside looking in, I'm working on embracing the season that I am in. This semester, I have no early morning clinicals. Right now I'm not a morning person, and I love love love my sleep. And I am embracing that! Today I treated myself to a long long Netflix marathon, complete with cuddling with Gertrude and leaving the bed only for food. I don't know what is around the corner, but today I have the ability to do that. Right now, I am in a season of fluidity and of minimal responsibilities beyond myself.

So right now, I'm embracing my easy, breezy, care-free(ish) lifestyle.
