I’m sorry for neglecting you and I have missed you dearly.
Needless to say, time is a limited resource for me and you’ve paid the highest price. I had devoted time to you during the small daily breaks that I have had to myself either in the early morning, nap time, or late at night. But alas, I’ve been cheating on you. There is another and his name is “Exercise.” I made the choice to abandon you in order to fit into a pair of pre-pregnancy jeans. How shallow of me? I know.
But would you believe me when I say that I did it for your own good?
You see, Exercise has allowed me to have more energy. It has lightened my mood and enhanced my creative spirit. I no longer spend countless thoughts on a wardrobe I couldn’t touch or dreading a summer spent in maternity clothes (although the baby is 9 months old). I am kinder to myself when it comes to the food I eat and the time I spend with my good friend, Exercise (with whom I have had a love-hate relationship).
I have come to terms with the reality of my life: I must constantly choose how best to spend my time.
There are mornings and nights that I have tried to spend quality time with you after Exercise but it’s never worked out. There have been hugs I’ve needed to give, a rolling baby I’ve needed to find, an impromptu concert I’ve needed to applaud, and my one true love needing my immediate attention – a Red Velvet Cupcake (just kidding, Ever-Patient).
I have about a dozen posts you’ve held onto patiently, waiting in the wings in the “Saved Drafts Folder.” It’s time for my return to you – a love that I never knew I had until it ceased to exist in my life.
So let’s rewind and start anew. We have a lot to catch up on.
