decor8 Sometimes I look at my inbox and think "WHY?" but most of the time I relax and say, "Hey baby why not??!"I think that's the approach you have to take to being busy these days... Realize it's a blessing, 😇that people want to reach out, that you have something to give, that you are still relevant in a very crazy world 🌍that often pushes you out for the next new thing. You have to always strive to be the next new thing. It's hard. I'm currently rebranding Blogging Your Way ️and relaunching an all new decor8. It's expensive. and tiring. But it's the only way to grow and challenge myself and stay focused. It's the only way an inbox will stay lively or else we risk falling off the grid. These emails are from the past month. (I have yahoo mail on my iPhone now and all of them I've dealt with since the beginning of the year got dumped here, so don't worry, I have answered them already.) But this is just mail account. I have ️I'm not saying this to brag because I know everyone has a packed inbox too and to be fair, 30% is evil spam , 10% is miscellaneous , 20% are pitches from publicists and companies and the other 40% is what I need to reply to.. In the end, just be happy when you have a lot of work because it means you still exist ️and in a world (online esp.) where everyone wants a piece of the action, you have to grateful and value all who are reaching out to you - even when you wonder if you'll have time to reply or even have the energy to. I hear so many moaning about being too busy lately, esp on my Facebook feeds. Don't moan it - own it! You're on fire! That's good, right? 5d

decor8 Don't even get me started on how curious and grown up he is for 12 months old! We ran around the forest yesterday and he kept touching the trees and looking straight up at them with a big happy grin! I love it now that he's walking because we can hang out together and really interact and he's a total doll so I love our times together. It's been one year of being with him each day, no childcare, me working mostly nights and during naps, and everything is good. Sometimes I want to work when I feel creative energy and I can't so this an be hard.,, but then I try to channel the energy into our play times and just take him somewhere to explore or go for walks like my mother did with me at his age. My mom always had me in the forest too telling me what everything was, unlike me she knows the name of every plant, tree and bush... It's funny how I remember back so long ago because of those long walks with her. And today, I happen to have a forest in my backyard too and can do the same and it wasn't even intentional. 6d
  •   stellaandthestars This has made my evening - Thank you for sharing #sameboat 6d
  •   marmelade666 Thanks for sharing, I can so relate. And btw, I said it before, Aidan is exceptionally fast, what with walking and so. He looks much older than twelve months, wow! Super cute! 6d
  •   christinaliveb Beautiful thoughts. I admire your dedication and determination to give your son the things that so many children lack these days. This is my goal for my future children too, and I hope to inspire others to do the same, which is why I started my company LiveBeautiful. Thank you for showing that beauty to your son. 6d

  •   decor8 @cozamia Hello Nancy! I'm not renewing ads on decor8, I've decided to go ad-free now. 6d
  •   oakprincess Lovely post! I really enjoyed this one! Yes, my social media for YouTube and such has to be done during naps and at night. I'm 12 weeks pregnant with baby number two now so it's super hard these past couple months. I go to bed early and nap when she naps. Augh! Lol but somehow I do a little bit. Lol energy is slowly coming back I'm hoping! But I enjoyed reading this post, very relatable. 6d
  •   rosesianna Your mom would be do happy hearing this 6d
  •   cozamia Oh I see! thanks for letting me know Holly! 1d

decor8 Our baby walked over to this lovely street performer downtown today and he stopped playing and invited him to play his electric guitar (with it still on). So he tried it and was so happy touching the strings hearing the sounds. These are the best moments in life - acts of unexpected kindness, so random, made my day. #hannover #12monthsold 1w
