Time is an amazing thing.
It just has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters.
And for me, time has revealed that I want to live a fulfilled life on my own terms.

A Crazy Change In Perspective
I remember the heartbreaking disappointment like it was yesterday.
As I sat at our kitchen counter, completing the hand-written envelopes that contained postcards canceling our second wedding, tears streamed down my face.
It was so embarrassing.
And, not to mention, I was so mad at myself.
It wasn’t because our plans had fallen through. It was because the plans that had abruptly come to an end weren’t truly my own.
I had allowed myself to be talked out of my dream, and the aching feeling of compromise that remained was killing me.
Have you ever been there?
If you have girl, you know it is NOT a fun emotional space to be in.
So how do you get out of it?
Here’s how I did it:
I let go of who I thought I was “supposed” to be and became brutally honest about what I wanted.
For example, instead of throwing a gender reveal party for our precious bundle of joy, I simply mailed scratch-off cards to our closest family and friends. Then, once they had discovered the surprise, I shared the reveal on social media.
Everyone wasn’t thrilled with the idea, but their opinions didn’t matter. What mattered, was that our tribe was invited into our baby’s life in a personal and special way.
And let me tell you, every text, video and phone call from each our family and friends was worth it!
