Howdy there

It has been a while since I sat down to write some of my thoughts and what not down onto “paper”- life with 1 husband, 2 kids, a busy job and animals to boot made time scarce. But I think I am starting to get a grip on the way I should handle myself and my business… so to speak.

We have been a busy bunch in the last several months. I have really come into my own in the last year or so. I feel like I have spent so much of my life trying to please others. I was SUCH a people pleaser. And now I feel that I have my priorities in place. They are in fact my priorities and they don’t always align with what others think I should be doing or how I should be spending my time. But I know myself better than anybody else.

I feel like I have been going to therapy without having gone to therapy. I know understand why people say turning 30 is so wonderful. I have truly become quite introspective. I think about things in such a different way than when I was in my 20’s. I am truly my own person now. I feel like God has put in a place where I can be of service to Him, in my home, in my job and in my church. I have not felt so happy and fulfilled in a long time.
