Holy mother the year is halfway over!
I started this year with my theme being to shimmer, and I've done so many different things to make that happen.
I gave myself time to create, I made the appearance, I promised myself to just do it, I stepped back and considered what would be next, and I talked about getting serious about saving.
So in July, I'm going to give myself some time to rest - a little mid-year relaxing if you will - and some time to recognize how far I've come.
I've been able to let things go, and really live in the moment, instead of always looking forward.
I'll be 30 in a little over two months and I'm having a blast not only planning an event but crossing things off my 30 before 30 checklist. If they don't all get done, they don't all get done. Whatevs.
I've learned to give myself time - to recover from a cold, to process a big decision, from blogging, or even from letting myself feel burdened.
Ben and I just passed our three-year "trying" anniversary. Three years or trying to have a family and being told no. But instead of bemoaning that fact, I'm focused on some cool new beginnings.
I guess my point is - mid-year like this I figured I'd have done some things and not others, and that's mostly true.
I'm changing. I can feel it. My smile comes easier now, and not just because things might work out - more because I know if they don't...eventually it will be okay. It's a smile of triumph and heartbreak, of hope and fear, of confidence and questions.
I'm so comfortable in my own skin it's not even funny. And I love it. I'm loving every minute of it.
I can see glitter behind me. I can feel myself starting to shimmer.
Do you set a theme for the year or monthly intentions? How are you doing with them?
