When I Step Back

Looking at my calendar on my desktop, I am finding it hard to believe that November is flying by like a hurricane without a warning. It's almost Thanksgiving people! For some reason I can't warp my mind around that. 

After months of traveling, deadlines that never end, road trips, and just life, after it all I find myself in disappointment when I step back and look at my life. I have made time for traveling, I made time for my Inspired Blog, time for client shoots, time for guest posting, time for cross stitching and the list goes on. What I find myself not having made time for is one-on-one time with my son, date nights with my husband, coffee dates with my mom, this blog that's so dear to me, and capturing the daily beautiful life not just the pretty things I do and make. 

For the past few months I would find myself cross stitching to relax and not playing Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes with my son. There have been a few things that have been bothering my husband and I about my son's behavior, but this week, I see why he's the way he is. I've left him to fend for himself while cranking out my work. I was still there and took 2 minute breaks to be with him, but more than 50% of my brain was still on work. 

I'm not hammering on myself as that is no good and because God gives me grace. It's pointless to beat myself up for my mistakes and flaws. It's important that I give it to God and ask Him that He now works on these area's He has just showed me. I am happy that I see these things and that He is giving me grace to change! 

I've decided to join in on the December Daily, but in a digital form. I need to slow down, say no to things that I need to and focus on the things that are dear to me. When the holiday's get busy I will have an activity to keep my priorities where they need to be, and that is with God and my family then He will bless the rest. I hope to get back into this little blog of mine and make those memories count.
