Welcome to Finding “It” in my Forties! What is “It” you may ask? Who knows? “It” could be a miracle eye cream that erases the signs of your new limited sleep schedule. “It” could be the best kid-friendly-don’t-feed-it-to-the-dog recipe. “It” could be the perfect bra that holds up the girls after the relentless task of breastfeeding and what a horror show that can lead to. “It” is going to be different for everyone and when you find it, you will know it.
I has taken me several months to work up the motivation up to start blogging again. I was a blogger up until I had a baby back in 2014. I loved blogging…I shared recipes, talked about fashion finds, personal thoughts and even stupid stuff my husband did.
As many of you know, having a baby changes things…a lot. I tried to keep up with my blog but just didn’t have “it” anymore. I got to a point where I was blogging just to blog and not really saying anything that hadn’t been said before. I was forcing my creativity…something I am just not good at. If it doesn’t come to me naturally, I just don’t do it.
Having a baby at 39 seemed easy in the beginning…until things started “changing.” My body, my emotions, my attitude. Some of these changes were for the good (like realizing what is truly important and how much time I have wasted caring about things and people that don’t matter) and some were for the bad (like delayed postpartum depression).
Well, it took a trip to the mountains of Georgia for Thanksgiving this week (code-word “no malls within 2 hours”) to finally get me going to start blogging again. My old blog was more of a lifestyle blog…this one is going to be similar but also cover some heavy (and always honest) topics about being a Mom of “advanced maternal age.”
Thanks for reading…
