Consistantly​ Inconsistent

I don’t like the fact that my last blog post was in March. In this season of life, my greatest challenge is consistency. I joke that the only consistency in my life is that it is inconsistent. What I enjoy most about blogging is the transparency of it all. It’s an opportunity to welcome readers into my world and to leave them better off with thoughtful, insightful, and applicable content. I’m grateful and proud of the rich perspective my various life roles provide. As a faith-filled Christian mother of three (one now a young adult), former teen mom, a wife of almost 11 years (in an interracial and blended family), a former classroom teacher, current yoga teacher, vegan, lover of regular self-care and exercise, and “fur mom” with an eye for interior decor, I enjoy many colorful days.

I am coming to terms with my priorities and limitations. Currently, graduation preparations for my firstborn (Layla) are my main focus. Likewise, having two younger children with activities and a desire to invest quality moments with them, leaves me unenthused about banging out 300 characters every week. I don’t enjoy the over connectivity of smartphones and binging notifications. I feel the overwhelming culture of produce more, be more, share more, is going to leave many of us burnt out from merely living. Therefore, I’m going to take some time to catch my breath behind the scenes and devise a better plan for how to share my life moving forward. In the meantime, I’ll continue to share moments via Instagram stories and check messages, but most importantly embrace just living.

What type of season are you in as a mom or wife? Feel free to drop a line below.

Much love,

Monique

    A very weird season really as I’m not back in my career as I want to be but somehow my side hustling is suffering, not flourishing. I have the extra time to devote to my side hustle but I just want to go back to work and that’s all my mind is focused on. Unfortunately, there is not a plethora of job opportunities open in my field (in my area) right now so I need to be patient… and patience is not one of my strengths!!

    One day husband M.D. took the children out for frozen yogurt. I was in a similar state of which you expressed. He captured a quote on the wall and texted the following: “God’s timing is forever accurate. Believe it, trust it, allow it.” I pray this season will grant you perspective and clarity. Thanks for sharing Candice!
