big changes, little package

i see little one being a new big theme in my writing.  we’re in the “home stretch”  now (yay) to meet our new little one.

i find i’m ready in many ways (like to be able to eat a normal meal and sleep on my back – in addition to the obvious meeting our lovely baby), and in others i will continuously need to grow and push myself.

in the last month or so, my world has been inundated with possibilities for thinking about who i want to be for my little one.

i’m thankful for all these little hints, reminders, pushes towards who i can be, especially right now with my crazy hormones.  one minute i’m at peace with the world and whatever is thrown at me.  the next day i’m back in my high school insecure selfish mind frame and the silliest thing has me crying.   then, once i sleep or eat or just get past the sillyness – i think how i want to get back to that at peace with whatever comes at me, because little one is coming and i want to be more, better, stronger, etc for this little being.

below are a few of the most recent things i’ve come across that have influenced me in numerous ways.

this first video was recommended  by a friend.  while i am more of a spiritual person than religious – i believe in the overall idea of this video – leading by example, and what exactly is that example.

this quote has given me pause when making decisions or when reacting to a situation.

Live so that when your children think of fairness, caring, and integrity, they think of you.
~H. Jackson Brown Jr

this quote too

in the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.


and for some humor, because sometimes laughing is just what is needed
