Lately, life has been so turbulent. Lots and lots of turbulence. Not that constant rumble up in the air, but the kind that jolts you up a little; makes you wonder if that was normal. I usually look to the flight attendants immediately to see their reaction, but they are probably trained to hide it.
It's almost funny just how much turbulence we have experienced. But I don't really want to focus on what has happened. (although some of it just may make you laugh at the sheer absurdity of how common drama has fell upon us.)
I want to be an encouragement.
That's why I blog. I absolutely adore writing. It's a love; a passion, if you will. However, I use this platform because I believe people are beautiful, even if their situations aren't always beautiful. I believe that all of my struggles are only met to enlighten and then move on, as glowing lanterns- inspiring us all to look up for a moment and then, ultimately, within. Within, to see the beauty of our spirits, the strength of our calm.
Jimmy is working two jobs at the moment. It's incredibly hectic. But, there is potential in both jobs, so it is worth it to make it work. He works at Verve Coffee Roasters and also, at a local design group called Stripe. (he works at the men's storefront called, you guessed it, Stripe Men) It's neat because it will keep his creative side happy. (side? he is basically 100% creative. music, art, photography)
Has anyone's husband had to work two jobs as well? Because I could use all the tips on how to keep life running smoothly and avoid daily meltdowns. Seriously though, anyone have any advice for me? We have been being very purposeful about family time, because with Jimmy gone so much, we figured it is essential to keep that a priority. It's important that our kids get time with both of us around, or just with Jimmy. We have possibly seemed a little anti-social, but really we are just attempting to keep our family sane. I would say that is the biggest thing I have learned about having a husband working a lot.
