When I started this blog, there was really no intent to go mainstream. Sure, I wanted to learn about SEO and stats but really, I didn't have much of a goal.
I wrote a bunch of emails, briefs, concepts during the 11 years I was working. I just really needed to write to feel normal.
Writing also helped me process the changes in my life. It was such a shift from making annual marketing plans to wedding plans, from being a boss to a bride, from being a bride to a wife. So many changes. Writing helped me to make sense of all the chaos.
It has been 8 months since I retired. I've been married to S for 3 months now. Things are starting to feel normal again.
I'm starting to ask myself, if the title of this blog is still appropriate. Am I still on Pause? My life seems to be in full swing...
I am starting to accept and enjoy being a housewife. I do help out in S' business but not full time. It's such a blessing to have the opportunity to have the time to enjoy the simple joys in life. Dinners at home are always very pleasant.
My husband works very hard. I have seen the effect on him when he comes home to a happy environment.
Because I have a type A and a very dominant personality, I tend to excite and inspire everyone when I am passionate but conversely, I stress everyone out when I am stressed.
I'm no longer on pause. Everything is normal. I love my new normal. I love making breakfasts, doing yoga, having coffee...sigh.
And I'm allowing myself to bask in this bliss because I know it won't be forever...
