I decided to do these “Truth Is” posts spontaneously throughout the next year. I like the idea of them. I stole it from my friend Lisa, who got the idea from her friend. It’s a great way to be honest and to maybe learn more about me, and I find them to be fun.
Since my blog is used as a place for me to write, something I love to do, it can be used to write what is pressing on me, and lately I feel there’s so much going on in my life. I obviously wouldn’t have time to share everything, nor do I feel the need to share everything, but every now and again it’s good to be more vulnerable. So here it goes……
Truth is.…..I hate being told I can’t do something. It’s probably a pride thing, but when someone tells me I can’t do something, I have to try just to prove them wrong. My husband has learned to never say “bet you you can’t……”
Truth is……I really want a dog. In fact, I had it all planned out that we would have a house with a big yard, then a dog, then kids. Well baby R came first. Love her to pieces, but I still want a dog; a Viszla to be exact. They are great running partners, and you know what they say they are “mans best friend.”
Truth is……I honestly didn’t think I could do this whole mom thing and really enjoy it (most days that is, because lets be honest it’s tough). Baby R brings so much joy to my life. Every time I look at her it brings a smile to my face. Even when she’s crapped all over me and I look at her, I can’t help but smile.
Truth is…….I wonder what I am doing with my life. I have a Masters in Human Nutrition, but yet I don’t want to work away from home now that I have a wee little one. I sometimes wonder if it was a waste of time and money….but then again I love reading anything and everything about nutrition and health, and educating others. I can get pretty passionate about health related topics. I want to find a way to pair them.
Truth is……I haven’t read my Bible for weeks and I still wonder why I have so many doubts. It’s something I miss, and something I need to do more of. I haven’t made the time for my devotions. It seems like it’s the first thing that goes, when it should be top priority.
Truth is…..I am a firm believer our bodies are meant to heal themselves, and when given the proper nourishment they can do so, without the aid of conventional medicine. Don’t get me wrong, conventional medicine can be important, but for the most part, we as Americans use it as a crutch. It fixes the symptoms, but not the underlying cause.
Truth is…..I sometimes feel like a prisoner as a parent, especially in this infant stage. I can’t be gone for long, because I am the babies source of food. You may say I could pump and have milk for someone else to feed baby R, but she won’t take a bottle (we’re working on it). I don’t know if the NICU ruined her, because she took a bottle there, but at home she won’t do it. I just feel l can’t leave my house, and when I do it’s so much work. Sometimes I miss just being able to run into the post office real fast for stamps, or to the grocery store to pick up a few items. These simple tasks are a little harder to do with an infant. And to be honest, I hate leaving her, because she’s all I think about.
Truth is……sometimes running in snow stinks. You work so much harder to gain footing and to move forward. It makes 8 miles seem like a marathon. Lungs burning, calves burning, and sweat pouring.
Until Next Time Be Whole and Be Fit
What’s something pressing on you? Do you have a “truth is…” to share?
