I’m a social 🦋 I could befriend a brick wall. So it’s crazy to think that up until this last November I spent 2 years being a hermit.
Going into public with my children was the scariest thing. When were they going to have a melt down? Because that was inevitable. Did I pack everything I could possibly need for any given scenario for a 7 minute drive to the store??? I couldn’t handle it so I didn’t.
We stayed home everyday. My husband came home to three females who were going stir crazy. Not to mention I was hyper focused on keeping a clean house because now that I’m a SAHM I had to have an immaculate home or I wasn’t “earning my keep”. We are our own worst enemies, right?!
One day my husband said screw the house, y’all need to start getting out. For some reason knowing he wasn’t expecting perfection took a huge weight off my shoulders.
We started small with story time. I quickly started making friends which led to more activities. Soon we were going to play dates and birthday parties. This photo is from our ladies nights, which we’ve started making a regular event.
I stopped focusing on the things that weren’t important and started working on the things that are and now life is Fuller and I have a community.
