This week has been a little bit slower than usual in terms of my physical capabilities. I climb up our three flights of stairs slower, I talk slower (a much welcomed pace for Adi), I turn from one side to the next slower, I walk slower, and I swear, I think slower. In the beginning of the week, this annoyed me to no end and I attempted to push forward and categorically refused to accept that 31 weeks of pregnancy would “slow” me down. Earlier this week, Adi and I went out to dinner and when we got back home, we decided to take a walk since it was so nice out. About half way through, my body was screaming “get me a car now” while my head battled “walk weakling, walk!!“. And then there was last night. Lately, we’ve been eating our dinner kumbaya style on the floor of our living room so that we can watch the NBA playoffs together, and last night I walked into the living room where my husband built a pillow fort for me to sit on. If I didn’t love that man so much I would have been insulted, but when I needed help getting in, I knew I had another thing coming.
By nature, I loathe the word “can’t”. I refuse to accept that one simply can not do something and find excuses rubbish. Some people (mom) have told me that I can be a bit harsh while others (husband) have told me that it will all catch up to me. Well, I’m not admitting to anything quite yet, but I will say that there are some things that I just
can’t have a harder time doing. I’m not sure how much more my body will be able to take before I finally accept that I’m not as strong anymore, but I will say that I’ve been secretly enjoying the back-rubs, sofa curl-ups, and 10pm bedtime.
On a completely different note, this morning, I woke up to something that made this week all better. If you don’t already know about her, I strongly recommend you make your way over to Sarah’s blog and prepare yourself to be lured in for hours upon hours. Not only is Sarah a fabulous blogger, wedding designer, and event stylist, but she’s such a lovely person with a beautiful, happy heart and a bucket list of travels that puts the travel channel to shame ( major bonus cool points). A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of meeting her while traveling with my dear and amazing friend/photographer guru, Jessica Lorren, and today I’m beyond thrilled to have been featured in her amazing series, “what I learned in my 20s”, which you can read here. Be sure to bookmark her and check back tomorrow as Sarah will share her own lessons and plans for never slowing down. Happy Thursday all!
