March Goals + Fun Friday: Podcasts I'm Loving
So, February feels like it was the fastest month of my life. Honestly, it was all a bit of a blur, and I’m still getting the hang of this mom-of-3 life. In short, it’s crazy. I’ve been a bit more brave, getting out of the house more and actually handling all 3 kids for preschool pick up and drop off by myself, which is nuts. (One day in the freezing rain. That was fun!)
I’m currently sitting at my kitchen island on February 28, all the windows are open, and the sun is shining outside. It’s exactly what I need today - after a week of freezing rain and waking up with a cold this morning, this sunshine is making me feel so alive today! Lyndon is asleep, Milly is having “quiet time,” and Beaufort is supposed to be sleeping, but instead is talking in his crib.
TBH, goals haven’t been high on my priority list these days. Making dinner, changing diapers, and feeding a baby have been. I go back to work in 2 weeks, and I’m trying to soak in every moment of these fleeting days with my sweet babies!
But I will confess: there is ONE goal I’ve been working on behind the scenes through out maternity leave, and I’m pretty excited about it!
I have spent a lot of time in prayer about this, I’ve been working with my sis-in-law and bro-in-law on the sound and set up, I’ve been scheming with Sammy Jo on content. It’s been in the works since before maternity leave, but it’s been a refreshing project to get me excited to ease back into work! So stay tuned - If you are on my list, you’ll be the very first to know about it!
So as I’ve learned through my last maternity leaves, giving myself a LOT of grace for a “re-entry” into work is essential. With that in mind, here are my goals for this month!
Finish the Contentment Challenge (!!!)
Go back to work 3 days/week
Speak at Making Things Happen
Finalize Podcast Launch
