It’s been a while since I’ve written an normal blog post on here. Mostly because not a lot of people are into reading blogs anymore, according to research. They prefer video now. I started a YouTube channel years ago, posted a few videos, but the amount of time it took to shoot, edit and post them was SO labor intensive. Then I had a baby and well…..the rest is history.
I feel the need to bring my creativity back! I am feeling so good lately after finally getting some me time in my schedule since having my daughter. I am really starting to notice a difference in my joy and happiness. It’s a privilege to be a mom, but it’s also very mentally and physically taxing. It’s about being focused on someone else besides yourself all day and all night and when there’s not the proper balance of taking care of YOU, you can start to notice things.
I’ve finally started to get some balance back and it’s been rejuvenating.
I am saying yes to opportunities that come my way, like being interviewed for the Chicago Tribune, volunteering with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and speaking at the CancerCon conference this past April. Those things truly make me happy, knowing I am making a difference in the lives of others who are struggling. I feel a huge need to help people. I just want to do more of it and on a larger level. So, this is where I am now. Trying to bring back my creativity in a way that is efficient but also allows me that outlet to be creative and help people.
I’m not sure what it’s going to look like but I’m excited for what is to come.
