I’m Back! Plus 5 things my first year of motherhood taught me about living life beautifully

robyn post

It has been a very long time since I’ve written to you friends!  A lot has changed in my world and I’m eager/scared to get back into posting regularly.  Eager because sharing and communicating with you really lights me up; scared because I’m trying to push my personal boundaries and get uncomfortable, which putting myself “out there” more intimately definitely makes me. Cheers to facing fears!

It’s been a good two years since I wrote for this blog. (Alyssa has been rocking it for us in the meantime!) I felt like a failure when, after preaching how to conquer mental illness, it consumed me wholly and completely, dragging me down to its depths. Time off work and medication didn’t do the trick, the exhaustion overpowered my will and desire to pursue healing, and I gave in to the darkness, settling in defeated.  I felt like I’d failed myself and the people I was hoping to inspire.

But hindsight is seriously 20/20 guys! Skip over a very rough pregnancy, a preemie baby, 11 months of sleep deprivation, and 3 months of crawling back to sanity and here we are now.

Becoming a mother has been the hardest, most exhausting, humbling, wonderful amazing beautiful experience of my life. It has changed me in so many good ways; slowed me down, taught me patience, taught me compassion for other parents, and now I try to see the world with child-like eyes. Everything is more beautiful and magical and inspiring; it has breathed new life into my adult existence.

Today I’d like to share with you some of the best things my first year of motherhood has taught me. All the sleepless nights are worth the wisdom 🙂

The Art of Letting Go

Last year was a year of transformation for me. It was a biggie. Uncomfortable. Challenging. Overwhelming.

It was the year that changed everything. The year I got grounded and comfortable in my skin.

Throughout my year of transformation, one of the most valuable acts of self care I learned to do was:

We All Start Somewhere – How To Embrace Your NOW

Hello Lovelies!

For me, this blog is an expression of a desire to lead a more sustainable, balanced lifestyle. It’s about embracing minimalism and simplicity and prioritizing our health and wellness, as well as the health of the environment and ecosystems around us.

Lofty goal right?

It’s a simple enough idea to sum up in a sentence, but it’s by no means simple in practice. Living a more conscious, intentional lifestyle is hard work! Seriously! It takes effort to learn about supply chains and how to buy better. It takes time and energy to declutter. Moving away from processed foods means developing cooking skills and new shopping habits… none of that just happens on its own.

So how do you deal with the inevitable frustration or overwhelm that comes with making changes to your lifestyle?

Introvert Ideal Part 2 – It’s Time to Thrive

You wanna fly you got to give up the shit that weighs you down.

– Toni Morrison

I LOVE being an introvert.

No I’m not crazy.

Seriously, I’m not!

It took me a while to get here, but I can say in complete honesty that I am content with my nature and embrace it completely. I’ve learned how to thrive as an introvert and find new ways to grow every day. It’s an ongoing journey, but it’s worth it to get to a place where I feel right, myself, good, amazing! I honour myself, push my boundaries, test new waters, GROW.

Imma gonna rock this introvert shit!
