WHAT THE ACTUAL HECK!?!?!
I wanted to drop in and say Hi and update you on life since things have come to a drastic halt for most. we are smack dab in the middle of a “ global pandemic“ and life is currently in a state I never thought I’d ever see in my lifetime. Both Aaron and I have been home since mid March and honestly right now we are soaking up our last few months with Brax before he turns the big O N E!!!! Aaron is working hard on school work and I’m just editing photos from home for now. We are SLOW living and it Is something I am not going to take for granted.
Aaron really opened my eyes to our ”normal” reality a few days ago. I had made the comment that I want to use this time to really search deep on things that our life can just do without. There are so many things that we think we MUST do, but when those things are taken away from you, you get the chance to step back and really see, they really aren’t that important and most of them you’re really just not obligated to do. We put so much unnecessary stress on ourselves. So when I was mentioning this to Aaron he said, “Babe, I wake up for work at 5AM and we usually don’t roll into our house until 9PM or later...” and y’all, Id love to say he’s being dramatic, but the truth is that it’s 100% fact that most days this is our normal.
I still haven’t come to the solution to this issue, but I’m still working on it. It’s hard to cut things from your life that you genuinely care about. However, I’m already seeing the positive effects on our family since being forced to slow down. Its actually a really nice way to live. Obviously, I cannot wait to have my normal everyday job back, but at least I’m using this time to sort things, and grow. My little family has never been so close and this time together (especially super close to a deployment) is something I will truly cherish forever!
What are things that you’re focusing on during this time?! I’d love to hear! -bB
