Where I live in Alberta, we have been put back into lockdown. I understand that I have a lot of privilege and the lockdown does not affect me in a major way. Believe me when I say that I am incredibly grateful for that. My husband and I comment daily about how lucky our family is.
However, COVID fatigue is real. We have been on a constant rollercoaster for the last 14+ months. The kids going from in person learning to online learning and back and forth takes a toll. Especially when you have a child that requires substantial support, a preschooler who is deserving of attention, and another very understanding but at times, neglected, child.
Over the last six months this project has been an incredible outlet for me. I have loved sharing with you on Instagram and that won’t change! But the weekly posts here on the blog need to stop for the time being. Only until I can get longer than 3 uninterrupted minutes and I feel good about my kids’ emotional needs being met. As well as my own, my husband’s, and the other important personal relationships I have.
A few years ago, this would have felt like failure or defeat.
Today it feels like growth and achievement. I’m prioritizing myself and my family. I am recognizing that instead of trying to do it all and resent anything that gets in my way, I can take a step back. It’s ok to rest.
So please know that if you are a supporter of this blog–I love you!!! And I can’t wait to get back to serving you some amazing content. Trust me when I say I didn’t think I would be on hiatus this quickly. But also know that I want you to have the absolute best of me. And for now, that means a break.
But my vaccine is booked and the end of this shit show is on the horizon. So stay ready, baby!!!
