Video Girl!

I wonder really often how much people actually read blogs anymore. 
I watch YouTube videos DAILY without fail!
I forget to check bloglovin' sometimes. 
No one appreciates the written word anymore.

I love to read... and I love to write... but I cant help but feel like I would reach a bigger audience through video.

Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone

It is so easy to get stuck in a routine nowadays. One or two days pass and then you find months have passed and you have a whole list of things you wanted to do/wish you should have done. That's how it usually is for me anyway. 

One of my goals this year is to make sure I step out of my routine. I literally hold myself back from doing things in fear of the unknown. And it's a slew of unknowns. How is it going to turn out? What are people going to think? What if it doesn't go the way I imagined? It is super easy for me to get caught up in myself and just let life pass me by out of comfort. 

I don't want to miss out on new experiences or opportunity because I am comfortable with the way life is now. Complacency is not a word I'm embracing in the new year! Time to do big things! 

What helps you step out of your comfort zone? What plans do you have for trying something new this year?

A Breastfeeding Mom's Inner Monologue....

Before Feeding....

"I wonder when he's gonna wake up..
he's been asleep for pretty long...
It's not time for him to wake up?
Hope he isn't hungry.
What if he doesn't know he's hungry?
God I hope he wakes up if he's hungry.
He has to be hungry my boobs feel like rocks.
Is that a lump? *feels boobs*. I hope that's a milk lump.
How would I ever know if I'm abnormally lumpy?
Gosh my boobs are full... "

During Feeding....

"At least I don't feel like my boobs are gonna explode anymore *sigh of relief*
Is he sleeping? Nope... Just taking a break.
He looks so peaceful... sweet baby.
OK kid... it's not playtime. Stop trying to look around with my boob still in your mouth.
OUCH! Why are baby gums so sharp?
You better hope you don't get teeth any time soon!
I have to pee.... I always have to pee *crosses legs*
Are you done?... No don't scream... Shhhh shhhhhh
Why is this taking so long? How big could his little stomach be?
Why was that so quick? He couldn't have eaten enough!
It's fine.. take your time..."

After Feeding....

"Phew! Finally! My arm was going numb!
Awwww! Look at the cute little sleeping face. #milkdrunk
Now if I could just lay him right........ CRAP... hes up!
I'm not re-latching you kid you aren't hungry.
You can't be hungry it's impossible!
Shhhhh SHHHHHHHH it's OK sleep baby!
Here you go... take the paci... shhhhhh
Why isn't it working?
Oh good he isn't crying anymore he's just staring at me wide-freakin-eyed!
I'm gonna be housebound the rest of my life. "

*This post was intended for humor. I love breastfeeding and wouldn't trade that opportunity for anything at all! But we all have our moments and if you don't then pat your perfect self on the back and know that I DEFINITELY have mine! LOL*

The Inevitable....

And by that I mean the New Year, New Blog blah blah blah post.

Is there any point to it? Why should you change your whole blog just for the new year? I mean granted it looks a little different around here... But my blog header had a whole bunch of stuff in it that I never write about so it had to go LOL.

I'm just happy to find my footing again in blogland. I promise it won't get away from me.
