Life Update

Hey Ya!

Been super consumed with life right now, to the point where pumping out sweet content for my blog has taken a bit of a backseat right now. Tallest Tallman was away for two weekends for work, which wasn’t killing my groove too much, but then he came back from Minneapolis last weekend (yeah, yup, #SBLII !!!), and a day later came down with the flu. And we had a snow day. And then Littler Tallman seemed to be getting sick, too, but she seems to be fine now. So, with all of this stuff going on, I’ve needed to be there for my V.I.P.s.

A short update on life, and a quote from Brene Brown! www.theshortesttallman.com

With all of that care taking, I was only able to be thinking and taking notes on bloggy plans. And that’s ok.

In that time, I read The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are by Brené Brown. Such a good read! It’s all about living “wholeheartedly”- coming from a place of inherent worthiness. Wowza!

Now that I’m back, everyone’s back to their “normal” selves, I’m trying to pick up the pieces with housekeeping, calendar-keeping, and joy-keeping. It is sometimes tiring being the glue the keeps the family together (laundry- amirite???), but it is also so much fun. So much joy!- if I allow it and choose it! And it’s soooooo a choice.

I’ve got two major projects going on right now: a big PTA event that I’m chairing, that is kicking into high gear the next couple months (anyone have any tips for running a killer school carnival? lmk!!), and a secret project that I’ve been working on. So psyched to share it with you soon.

I’ll leave you with this quote from Brené Brown’s The Gifts of Imperfection (p. 125):

Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of worthiness. It’s about cultivating the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough. It’s going to bed at night thinking, Yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid, but that doesn’t change the truth that I am also brave and worthy of love and belonging.
