What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’ve never been so tired. But I’ve also never felt so in love with my life. I’d also tell you that timehop showed me a picture with a similar caption from two years ago, where Christopher’s work schedule was insane and we were sacrificing sleep so we could be normal and go to the bar with our friends. I felt in love with life then, sure. But somehow, giving up sleep for a snuggly little munchkin is more fulfilling than giving it up for drinks and dancing. Who would have thought?
If we were having coffee at my house there would probably be cartoons playing. Jack has reached the stage where he really enjoys the colors and music of certain cartoons, and it’s adorable. I’d tell you that I’ve been pretty surprised by how cartoons actually talk about important stuff! Jack can’t understand what’s being said yet, but so far I’ve heard songs about sharing with your friends, taking care of your pets, being yourself, and pitching in with hard work. It makes me happy to know he will grow up learning these things from shows he actually likes.
I’d tell you that I’m learning it’s possible to be overwhelmed and also a little bored at the same time. It’s a weird feeling to end the day so tired from all I’ve done and overwhelmed by all I didn’t get done but also feel a little bit bored because I didn’t get out of the house, or get any fun hobby related things done. I think anytime a big change happens it takes a little bit of time to adjust, and right now I’m adjusting to working from home and taking care of Jack without any help. This life is messy and perfect and I wouldn’t trade a single bit of it, but it is taking a little bit of adjusting.
I’d tell you how much this cracked me up. If there’s anything I love more than basic, popular things…it’s a good satire about basic, popular things.
I’d tell you that I’m still going strong on the healthy creamer. And I’m still feeling way better in the mornings that I was with the good stuff (MISS YOU, BAE).
Now…your turn! What’s going on in your life?
Ps..that mug is from Francesca’s and Chris found it on his own and bought it for me. I won the lottery with that one.
