I keep having these conversations about how I often feel like I’m spinning. Spinning in and out of mama world, in and out of biz world, in and out of house chores, and on and on. As time moves forward, the spinning feels faster, like I’m constantly and quickly spinning from one thing to the next. I can’t keep up, and I worry sometimes that I’m moving too fast. After I had True, life really slowed down for me on a very personal/internal level. I like the slow, I’ve embraced it, yet the rest of my life isn’t on the slow speed. When I’m with baby and family I’m there spiritually, physically, mentally and I totally feel settled, in the moment, and breathing. I’m even a little surprised at how calm I feel inside these hours. Love it!
When I spin out of family time and into another piece of my life (biz, housework, personal biz, etc), all hell breaks loose and it’s fast, fast, hurry, hurry, do, do, do – all stuff I want to be doing, but the pace is FAST. It’s sort of driving me bananas, the in and out, the calm and the storm. I can’t seem to have a full conversation on the phone, finish a thought, follow up on house projects, and gather up all the scattered pieces – even just for a day or so – of my crazy full amazing life. Do not get me wrong – I’m not complaining, but rather trying to figure out how to cope with all the pieces that are in the air at all times.
I know so many of you can relate. Please say you can relate 🙂
And then I had a vision, an aha moment that put all my chaotic spinning feelings into the sweetest most positive perspective. I have to share it with you.
As I was trying to reframe the whole spinning chaotic feelings I was having, I thought of the above recent photo that my friend Andrea took of me. I thought of how happy I was in that moment. How alive I felt. How joyous I felt. And yet, there I am blissed out and, you guessed it, SPINNING!
And then I thought of this photo that I took of her a couple of years ago. There she is blissfully SPINNING during a fun silly moment with our cameras.
And then I thought of this shot taken during the same play hour together. That’s me being sassy after my spell of spinning in the grass.
