Still here…

Hey guys! It has been nearly one month since I’ve posted anything. What began as taking some time away to spend time with family turned into transitioning my kids through the last couple weeks of school. We had to return books, pick up supplies that were left at school back in March, and then finish up the final two weeks of school, which was filled with virtual field trips, field day at home, STEM day, and then two days of zoom meetings with teachers and classmates. Add in everything that has been going on in our nation/world, and writing a post has not exactly been on the top of my list.

Even though I haven’t written anything, I have been taking pictures for posts, and I think I have a nice little collection for posts to come. All that to say, I’m still here, just taking care of life. Sometimes it is needed to step back and focus on the things in front of you. I encourage you to do the same if you’re feeling overwhelmed right now. There is A LOT going on in the world. We are dealing with Covid, the most anti-climatic ending of a school year, and the talks of race and racism. It is exhausting stuff. I’m not saying we should avoid these things. I’m saying it is so easy to get caught up in social media and trying to prove a point, that it begins to consume our every thought.

I give you permission to stop answering those posts, to stop getting involved in places/conversations where you aren’t needed, and to redirect your attention to where your attention is truly needed. I’m not going to tell you where that is, you know what that is for yourself.

So, thank you for stopping by, thank you for reading this, and I hope to see you again later. I also hope you’re able to find some time to disconnect and reconnect with yourself. I’ll be here when you’re ready to come back. πŸ™‚
