This post will be short and sweet:

I just wanted to introduce you to my new baby boy!

Our second son, Case Michael, was born on February 5th weighing in at 6 lbs and 11 oz.

He is just the sweetest baby and both myself and him are doing well.

Unlike with my first son, where I tried to steamroll over all of the uncomfortable feelings I was going through, this time I’m just allowing myself to relax and enjoy.

Right now you are most likely to find me in a rocking chair in his nursery breast feeding and reading a book or staring out the window.

When I think about my life just 10 years ago the difference between now and then is astounding.

One isn’t necessarily better than the other…but just…so different.

Ten years ago you would hardly have found me at my apartment at all. If I wasn’t at work I was attending classes, at the gym, on a date, or out for drinks with friends and coworkers.

My life was jam packed.

Today I’ve done what I never thought I’d allow myself to do.

Give myself space. Breathing room. Say no to opportunities that I’d like to say yes to. Be present. Pay attention. Attempt (and sometimes fail) to be the best mother I can be.

Sometimes in life you need to pull back and find your focus.

Focusing on what matters most is hard work, but it’s the best kind of hard work. It’s the work that leaves you often exhausted but grateful, not striving to be perfect but full of grace.

This is just one season of my life. It reminds me of winter.

In the winter we go inward, we build strength, allow for peace and quiet, and get ready to bloom again.

What season are you in right now? If you were to follow your heart and find your focus, what would that be?

XO
Alexis

    Dear Alexis, thank you for sharing such a lovely and personal experience. What a beautiful baby. Yes, I have been feeling this as well… and love how you’ve put it into words. There’s been too much running to and fro. I’m resting, choosing to have faith and put my energy into one thing at a time. Take care, you are blessed.

      Thank you Roxanne! I’m glad you enjoyed the post and that you’re realizing that you need to rest and choose faith. The irony is we tend to have more success when we put energy into just one thing at a time. Blessings to you <3

    Hi Alex. I am happy for you and baby Case, I am also grateful to God for all the emails you send. They are really helpful. Right now I am in a bad space, like there is a lot of negative energy surrounding me, both at work and home. I try so hard to be calm , but there is one thing that keeps striking me. There is this one person at work with whom each time we have to be at one place together it does not happen either due to miscommunication or other constraints. Unfortunately a bad report is always sent to management on my case.As i reflect now, my work is like one hell of a place, pressure negativity, chaos no planning, I am just overwhelmed. At some point i felt like maybe its time i started spreading my wings. It is so hostile I feel like i am chocking. I really need a friend right now.
    Alice

    Congratulations on your gorgeous baby! Giving yourself permission to rest is key. I’m definitely in my winter right now but looking forward to my spring. I’m the mother of 6 and recently separated, trying to focus on where God wants my life to go. I’m trying to find my purpose and how to follow my passions while balancing kids.

      Thank you Meghan! Wow – a mother of 6 is amazing. Following your purpose while balancing kids is a challenge, but I know you can do it. xo

    I think it’s maturity for a woman to realize, “How many times in my life am I going to participate in a miracle?”
