Right now you are always doing something! There isn't a lot of time for rest right now + when you do find some me time, you feel guilty about it. You are working on that. You are learning that is just as rewarding to cross off a completed 'to-do' as it is to just delete something that isn't important. You love being at home with Morgan and Parker and you are settling into a nice daily rhythm (as opposed to a routine). You are practicing being present + blocking out distractions. It is all a work in progress as you remind yourself that your family is more important that your to-do list!!
One year from now I hope you'll be more calm, more willing and able to relax and less feeling like you have to be doing something constantly. You will have a better handle on getting + staying healthy - eating well + getting active - not just for me, but for Morgan and Parker to see that this is your way of life. I hope you will be spending more one-on-one time with Mark, doing things you both enjoy. You will continue to strip the crap out of your life - the physical, the mental - and focus on what is important to you!
The overall spread includes the back of March's prompt (2 - 5" x 5" inserts: one is just patterned paper with a label tag, the other is another self portrait...I'm going to use the photo above), plus the above letter. I will take a final photo of the complete layout after I develop the photo. It'll be cool to read this next April and see what has changed, and what remains the same.
So much to focus on. One day at a time.
