There are so many changes coming in 2019 not only for me but I’m guessing you too! So this year is my (drum roll): SEASON of Less!!
This decision has been a long time coming. Let me say that again A. LONG. TIME. COMING.
I am finally ready to admit and accept that its time.
That’s the hard thing about change though. ACCEPTANCE.
Especially if you are like me and don’t do well with change.
So here are some tips that helped me get here.
Reflection, making a list, talking it out, realizing its time, finally accepting the change and acting on it.
For me during my reflection of my goals and how I’ve been feeling the past two years, one thing was clear.
It was time for less stress and time to focus on what I feel is a priority. My family and My mental health and then my business.
That order is what I have always strived for but I was always feeling stressed, especially when it came to balancing my children and business part.
So instead of stressing out about it, like I normally do, I’ve decided to roll with it and ride these crazy waves into My Season of less.
What does 2019 really mean for me?
My husband, who we will call Dragon Dad, started a new job and it has an unpredictable schedule which means more for me as the stay at home parent and obvious changes for my business. I have been struggling to find a balance since we decided Dragon Dad would take this new position.
Which prompted me to reflect and make changes.
This is where my idea of “Season of less” came or maybe it was my mother in law, lol.
Rabbit hole moment she loves saying “season of life, season of motherhood, season of …” you name it she has probably said to me. Love that lady and her cute little “season” phrases!
Back on track here, for my season of less I decided I would be taking a supportive role in the birth world.
What does that mean?
I have decided to leave doula work behind for now. I know that’s confusing to hear considering the post I did before this one was about how I work as a doula and my #doulamom. But That’s how life rolls.
I stress out easily and that makes for a cranky Dragon Mom
The idea of running a business, homeschooling, taking on more at home and the uncertainty of Dragon Dad’s schedule mixed with “what If I have a birth” was really stressing me out.
Deciding that 2019 would be my season of less helped me feel good with deciding to do less birth work, spend more time on family, start a blog and rocking my role as a placenta specialist.
I’m hoping this will be a positive change for my family and my business. I have made some changes to my website over the past month to showcase my new focus.
