I am currently having a hard moment. My summer is going to be the best this year, I know that as we have such amazing plans with friends and in-laws coming to town on top of our many trips planned. Despite it all I find myself comparing this summer to the one I had last year.
You see last year I wasn't where I am in my career today. I didn't have a blogging schedule, magazine shoots and so one to fill my time nor did my mom have a job and we didn't have much of a yard as we had chicken in the yard. This year I've been working on my career, my moms been doing her own thing and we now have a gorgeous blooming yard. With all that being said we are now spending our time at home whereas last year we would spend our time exploring parks, going on walks & visiting our favorite neighborhoods. Today I have a blog that needs to be posted on my Inspired Blog so there is no time to go anywhere as I have to come up with the content, photograph it, edit the images, put the post together and then post it to all social media sites, that just how my work goes.
I went through some images of that we did this day last year and we went strawberry picking! How fun does that sound right now? Today Tin refuses to get out of this fuzzy pj's and all he want to do is watch Dinosaur Train. That's a stark change from what happened last year! So now I have to figure out how to make sure that we take the time to get out of the house and SO something that's fun, adventurous and educational without braking my commitments, taking that time away from God and having a decently clean house.
This change has been bugging me for some time. I just need to be happy with where I am today and be extra thankful for when we do get out. I need to stop comparing my summers and embrace this one as it's a new season (preaching to myself here). I could also be feeling like this as today is the first day of summer and it cloudy, cold and just plain boo boo. I need sun, I need heat I need to feel like it really is summer. Wow, kinda feel better that I put it out there and not keeping it all pent up inside of me! Can anyone relate with me?!!
