My baby is about 8 months old. I'm back in the swing of things and feel like I'm living in the tension of "things can wait" and "this has to get done today or right now". I'm holding space for my family, and their needs. I'm holding space for the needs of my small community. I'm holding space for myself in this new season. All while acknowledging the big and small duties that I also owe to my dreams and this business as well.
My dreams tether me to other people. My clients, my business partners, the government, venues, wholesalers, anyone that I'm in a business or personal relationship with needs a slice of my attention.
I feel simultaneously like I have enough capacity to serve everyone but also like I have nothing at all to give. I'm continuously stretched and impressed with myself for not breaking under the applied pressure during this season of being a new mom.
I'm hopeful of even more expansion and also ready for the release of the tension.
I am hoping that this cycle never ends and also that it stops soon.
This tension is so new to me, and at times so hard. Nonetheless, it's proven to be valuable and I trust that on the other side of this tension is a stronger business woman and mom.
Capturing these feelings feels so sentimental, because I know I'll look back and see the way that this tension was shaping me <3
