Life right now.

They say having a child changes everything. You never really know what that means until you are in it and going through it. I have to say, it’s the single-handed most wonderful, most rewarding, most amazing, most awe-inspiring and most difficult thing I have ever done. I am madly in love with my little guy and also truly understanding what “having it all” looks like on a day-to-day basis. I’m back at work full-time, and the second I walk in the door after work, I am a full-time mom.

This leaves little time for much else. So far, I’m squeezing in a few runs a week – mostly in the wee pre-dawn hours when even the dog gives me the “are you serious?” look. After little one is asleep at night, it’s time for my husband and I to catch up while we cook dinner. Then off to an early bedtime since I know someone will be waking me up around 1 or 2 for his next meal.

I am honored to have this be my life right now. I am honored to be a mom and to have the opportunity to work full time. And I am also conscious of exactly how much I am capable of packing into one 24-hour period. After six years of blogging, sometimes five days a week, I’m not in a place where this fits anymore – at least not with any regular frequency.

I am still very much part of the DOC, but those capacities and involvements have evolved as my life has evolved. I may come back to more blogging as my little one’s needs change, or I may decide to keep posts occasional for the time being. I’m not sure. Just like everything in life, time will tell and I trust that things will play out the way they are supposed to.

For the time being though, I am needed in roles outside of being a blogger,¬†and I’m going to answer that call with my full attention. I am still here, but taking a more passive, quiet role in the DOC. Perhaps it’s meant to be that right now, I’m in listen-only mode. There are times when observing, learning, and processing are more important than being the loudest voice in the room. Perhaps this is one of those times. I will continue to listen to the universe for where I am called to next, and pledge to evolve with those needs. We will see what adventures await!

Keep in touch my friends :)

No one commented, so I will :) Good luck! I have a 1 & 3 year old, so know what you’re going through (um yeah, good luck finding time & energy for blogging right now).

I haven’t gotten to read much in the DOC the last year or two and I’m so happy to see your happy news! My little one is now 16 months and is the light of our lives. She is truly the most joyous and exhausting part of my life :) Soak in all the time you have- they grow heartbreakingly fast!

Alexis,

I myself am a Type 1 Diabetic and I was diagnosed at the age of 32. It’s great seeing other T1Ds sharing their story through blogs.

I’ve actually been medication free for over 2.5 years since I was diagnosed by following a plant-based, low-glycemic diet. I put my blog link below in case you were interested.
