Y’all. Does anyone else feel like they are flying by the seat of their pants? Life has been so crazy lately and isn’t slowing down any time soon. For those who don’t know I stay home with Sadie and also have two part time jobs. I am the marketing coordinator for a home builder and also work a retail job a few nights a week and on the weekends. All of that on top of being a stay at home mom, wife and blogger. I am in no way complaining about my life. In fact, I feel SO blessed to be able to do all that I do and I thank God everyday for my health and body that is able and a supportive husband.
With all of the craziness on my plate, there are inevitable deadlines. Some are deadlines given by others and some are deadlines and goals I set for myself. I am my own worst enemy when it comes to this topic. As a creature of habit I love order and meeting deadlines and when I am unable to because hashtag life, it really does a number on my psyche. I’m always beating myself up for days on end, I lose sleep and my anxiety is through the roof. I need grace over deadlines. This is what I am learning lately and it really is so hard for me to grasp. Or so it appears.
I am learning that I can’t do it all. And that is okay. Sometimes my sanity is more important than the goal I had to finish the laundry that day. Sometimes it is more important for me to ask for an extension on a project than it is to kill myself trying to get it done. Because, for me when I do that I can’t even enjoy what I’ve busted my butt working on.
So whatever deadline you are facing right now, whether it was given to you by someone else or yourself, show yourself some grace. Allow grace over deadlines to take place in your life. And a huge thanks to Aria Claire for showing me grace on getting this post published. At the end of the day it is about women empowering and supporting other women. And I have the best of the best group of women standing behind me cheering and spurring me on. Y’all know who you are and I’m thankful for y’all.
Now, lets talk about this little Aria Claire Nursing Cover. Bet you didn’t even realize it was a nursing cover did you?! Because I didn’t when I first saw one. Which I LOVE. I have another nursing cover that I use occasionally as a shopping cart cover, but it always felt like a red flag when nursing in public. Like, HI IM NURSING HERE. I love that this just looks like a normal poncho that just happens to conveniently be great for nursing!
It can also be used as an infant carrier cover, shopping cart or highchair cover and is made of bamboo so holy soft. It also comes in a cute little pouch so you can easily store it in a diaper bag or purse and not worry about it getting yucky if you don’t want to wear it. If you do choose to wear it you can even knot it like I’ve done here for a fun twist on a poncho!
Finally, I just want to say thanks to each of you who take the time to read my blog. This has been such a joy for me and it has been so neat to watch it transform over this past year into what it is now. And it wouldn’t be what it is without y’all. Your love and support means more to me than you know. Each text, email, insta message is so special to me.
And as always, because the condition of my heart is far more important than any outfit, I leave you with this. “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
