finding space

I have so many dreams for this space and stories, thoughts, and ideas I want to share with you. And yet, lately it's been a struggle to find the space in my days and weeks. Sometimes, I embrace the season. Other times, I feel like I may burst if I can't figure this out and find the space to express what is in me. 

It would be simpler if I was someone with an organized mind who could sit down and hammer out a post in a 30 minute block or two. But I am slow. I don't think fast or write fast or paint fast or run fast or fall asleep fast. I do eat fast, but I need to stop that. ;)

I could force it. I could MAKE it happen, but lately... there just hasn't been a peaceful and present way to do that.

I have found myself scrolling through instagram and facebook and comparing myself. I see lots of other moms with multiple children doing allllll the things, and I wonder why I can't be like them. But I don't want to play that game. I'm NOT them, and my kid is not their kid, and I may not know their whole story ( -- like that they have a babysitter 2 days a week or that they never ever sleep).

I'm hoping the space in my days will soon return, or that we will find a peaceful and present way to MAKE it. (We have some ideas, and are working on it.) I do have some posts in the works that I am excited about finally sharing, hopefully SOON! The first is about Creative Parenting, something I am growing increasingly passionate about.

In the meantime, do you find space to create and pursue "extra" things? What are your tips and tricks? I'd love to hear.
