It has been a while since I have done much on Glowing Local, as we have been taking some time off to welcome our new baby boy to our family. Another red head and such a great little baby…we are all thrilled to add him to our pack.
The past two months have been a much needed break for me. I had great intentions of getting some good blogs written, planning quite a few things for a holiday Christmas launch, working on some new journals; but, none of that happened…and it is great. Our family, my body, my soul…it all just needed a good rest and break from it all.
It has been nice to not feel the pressure to “do more” this holiday season, like trying to sell products or get our family overbooked in December. It’s been nice to take a big break from social media, having deleted the apps from my phone for a good chunk of time. It was especially nice to delete my work e-mail off my phone, making sure that I didn’t feel the pressure to “do something” all the time. Overall, it was just what I needed as we readjusted to our new normal routine around here.
I have been praying over Glowing Local quite a bit lately…after the summer, I was having funny feelings about doing the whole Christian business thing - whether I was being authentic, whether this is the direction I still wanted to go, whether I was allowing comparison affect me more than I realized. The past two months have been good to just step back and reset…I am still not quite sure what is next, but I know it has been good for my soul!
As the year winds down, I am thankful for so many blessings, especially our family, my work, our friends, and this great community who have supported Glowing Local over the past year - THANK YOU!
