Do it with passion or not at all.

First let me say, there is still hope that Pablo may turn into an Instagram husband. I literally dream of this. Lol! He took these pictures and I don’t think they’re half bad, si or no? Second, I am so happy to use some of my downtime during this holiday weekend and look back at my blog. It’s been 6 months since my last post! I stopped a little after my nanny quit and I just could not do it anymore. In fact, I was feeling resentful about all the things that were pulling my attention. So I’ve done some major rearranging in the past six months. The lesson here is that when you aren’t happy with with how things are going, you aren’t forced to accept things the way they are. Change things! Don’t get me wrong…I have been stuck plenty of times in my life where I’ve blamed everything and everyone. And there were times where patience was in order and I’ve had to buckle down and wait for the right timing. However, I am often asking myself the hard questions, and I am continuously rearranging aspects of my life to make sure that I still feel passion, joy, connection and peace. Sometimes, it’s as simple as trying a new exercise regimen and other times it’s more difficult, like letting go of things or people that hold you down or waste too much of your time.

It takes support to live this way, especially as a wife and mother, and I am thankful that my family is so supportive. But it also takes courage. To feel the fear of people’s opinions or even failure, and do it anyways!

In 2017, I hope you find new ways to feel passion, joy, connection and peace. Cheers to rediscoveries and reinventions!

Love,

Ana B
