They say that you lose yourself when you have children, but I think that's far from the truth.
You discover a beautiful new version of yourself that's stronger and has the capability to love so much deeper than before...
My sweet Charlie, I'm still not sure how it's already been a month that you've been in our lives but I can't imagine it without you now. You were worth all the waiting and now sleepless nights.
If you've been around here for a while and have decided to stick around for this new journey, I just want to say thank you.
I know my space here has changed drastically over the years- starting out at in my college years as a track athlete, becoming a CrossFit junkie, diving into weightlifting, getting injured, recovering, finding a new balance and now starting a family. But hey- that's life and change simply means we're always growing, which is never a bad thing.
I still feel drawn to share fitness related content and I will still continue coaching because my love for it is still so strong, but I wouldn't be honoring myself if I didn't admit how passionate I feel about pregnancy, birth work and now motherhood.
Because, bringing Charlie into this world has truly been a transformational experience for me.
So I guess I say all of this because I'm not sure exactly of the direction I'm going, but I do know that I trust the universe and that my intuition will guide me to where I'm supposed to go. Welcome to the new journey.
