October 2013 marked a bunch of new changes for me. While transitions can be stressful, sometimes they are so necessary to help get your life going in a better direction. October marks a new beginning for my boys and I. We are now West Coasters!! I have been wanting to get out of Newark, NJ for quite some time, wanted a new job and just a new way of living. So with my maternity leave wrapping up and a great offer from my uncle and aunt, I decided to relocate. So October was a new month with so many new challenges to deal with and many new parts of life that I get to learn as a woman and more importantly as a mom.
New as of October: city, home, parenting 2 boys, school search, job search, exercising with 2 small ones, dealing with tantrums (aaaahhh!), parenting 2 without the usual support people near by AND life’s vision. I’m sure this list can go on, but I’ll stop here for now.
As I go through life, I’m learning to be patient. Patient with others and most of all patient with myself. I mentioned that my vision is new, well I should probably say it’s a bit cloudy right now. This transition took a lot of thought and I’m not sure what my new vision is. I do know it includes being THE best mom I can possibly be and contributing to the changes in the birthing situation for blacks in America right now, all while living a happy, healthy life full of new adventures.
The tone of this blog may be a bit different moving forward but I hope you will still enjoy as I continue along this journey.
