I like to write. I really do. I would even say I love to write.
Writing is important to me for so many reasons, including:
- stress relief/therapy for topics I need to get out of my head
- creative outlet
- adult conversation
But… I’m not sure writing is my passion. No, actually, I know it’s not.
It occurred to me, especially after writing this post a little over a week ago, that just because I’m a SAHM now with another one on the way does not mean it’s time for me to give up on pursuing anything. There’s no time like the present to pursue the things I am passionate about.
I started this blog as a means to express my passions and connect with people who share some of those same interests. Along the way, I fell in love with writing, but it’s still not what I yearn to do above all else. I want to write about that.
Considering that it is Monday morning and no one should really get too deep on a Monday morning, I’m just going to say: I’ve made a decision. I am going to start pursuing what I really want to do.
What is that you ask?
I love the world of childbirth and breastfeeding. I want to be a lactation consultant and a doula. I may even want to pursue midwifery someday. In the past week, I have connected with my local La Leche League (way overdue) and looked into Bradley educator training (I used and loved the Bradley Method and at least one of the doula certifications I looked into required training in a childbirth method).
I just thought I should fill you all in on why I’ve been so quiet on here. I still want to do reviews and giveaways for the baby wearing and cloth diapering products I use and love. I will definitely be doing an itti bitti tutto diaper review soon, there should be a giveaway, and I will provide more details very, very soon. Oh, and I will also be updating you all on what I’ve decided in the childbirth department for baby #2 this week.
