How has it been so long? So much has happened. The world has changed and so has our tiny corner of it since our last blog post. It is so embarrassing to say that we just lost track of time. But when I look back on our last post and it says 2019; I’m literally speechless!
Do you ever just have the best intentions, but all your so called obligations keep getting in the way? That is truly what happened to our intentions with the Wife and Wife Inc. blog. May I list a few of those so called obligations and see if you can relate?
- Work that is busy work, but you think is working towards your actual work but it isn’t work at all. But you are currently still working on it.
- People that need you now, not later, immediately for their own needs, wants and/or desires. These are the folks you just can’t say no to because you have yet to work on boundaries.
- Getting caught in the rabbit hole of just about anything. Social media, Netflix, a good book series, training for the cookie eating championship of 2022 (it may not exist but I feel like I’m real close to getting chosen for the team).
Ok, so beyond that there were actual things that we did that made sense: actual work, actual growth, actual connection and actual living of life beyond the great soul suckers aforementioned. It is those great big blocks of time that you lose that makes you kind of lose out on greater things you could be doing with your time; things that you really want to pursue. Plus the fact that diving into something that could make you better can be a scary place. Rejecting things that could be a good thing in your life and get you out of your comfort zone can make the brain protest and make excuses of why you can’t get things (like a blog) up and running.
So here we stand. A new year. A new blank slate. A new batch of expectations. If anyone else thought 2021 was trash please let us know. It was the hardest year for us since we don’t even know how long. In its defense, the hard really gives you opportunities to grow and learn and shift. We already feel a shift. That shift has fueled the resurrection of the blog.
We hope that you can learn and grow and shift (and hopefully laugh) along with us in this labor of love that we are creating. We are before you committing to a new year of truth, support, vision, growth, learning and sharing.
Happy New Friends…this is only the beginning!💜💛
