Happy First day of Spring! I wanted to take the time and apologize for my lack of newsletter this winter, I guess with every season comes trials, and the trial I was facing was unmotivating, and it overwhelmed me. I can’t thank myself enough for taking those few months break to focus on myself and my family.
So, here is to new seasons and a fresh start.
How many of us go through our days parched and empty, thirsting after happiness? For most of the winter, I was so unhappy with where I was with my life. The lack of motivation to organize my home or even write was eating me up alive. It became so overwhelming that I just shut everything off and with that, the laundry started piling up, the amount of takeout we’ve eaten was immense, and the amount of dust that collected on the shelves was just so overwhelming to me.
One day I woke up and just realized that today would be the day I would quench my thirst for happiness and just acknowledge that what I can accomplish in one day would be enough. Learning to be happy with what’s in front of me, and not adding too much to my plate. I’m starting over. My journey to self-discovery is something so real and it’s the best thing I ever decided to do.
I’ve been trying to find a delicate balance of living in the world and not belonging to it. meaning, I can live each day but not in the motion where I don’t enjoy those moments that is worth living for. I see way too often, people who live their everyday life the same, and nothing to really look forward to, and for me, that scares me, because I don’t want to live a life like that. So finding a purpose that means something to me, has helped me restore a sense of rhythm in my life. Honestly, how much rhythm do you have in your personal world?
I still feel that having a Rhythm in your home is just so important. Just like children how they need a bedtime, us mothers do too. We need a daily routine, a steady flow, to help us with the daily chaos. These will most likely change whenever our household dynamic changes, and that’s ok. But a rhythm 365, 24/7, all four seasons, is just so important. A progression from your early mornings to late at night, with a rhythm that will fit with your personal needs and desires.
I think for me, I lost my sense of rhythm along the way, and I was having a hard time figuring out what needs to change. So, while I sat and contemplated what type of world I long to have, I remembered the few things that mattered most to me, and that was the simplicity of our everyday life. Less noise, fewer electronics, more homemade meals, more family time, and more comfort within these four walls we call h o m e.
Today, the first day of spring, we should all take a moment and quietly reflect on the role that rhythm plays in our daily life. Do you have a rhythm for your home? Does it work well? Do you need a new rhythm? Your heart will always tell you what’s working and what’s not. Restoring a daily rhythm to the way you live your life will bring you so much more contentment and a sense of well-being that will nurture and sustain you when the cares of the world can’t be left behind.
