  • I love it when one season ends & a new one begins....
.
It’s a little reminder that we are not stuck in any situation.
.
We hurt and we heal.
.
We build and we break.
.
We fall and we get back up.
.
I saw this quote that I had to share because it taught me an important lesson. Maybe it’ll help some of you, too. 👇
.
“All the trees are losing their leaves & not one of them is worried.” -Don Miller
.
A dying leaf is just as much a reminder that we will bloom again in the spring. However, being able to embrace the changing seasons of life is about being HERE. It’s not about staying stuck in the past season or fixated on the future one.
.
We want to know where this road is going and when this confusing or difficult time will end.
.
I’ll admit it, many days I wish I could fast forward to when I’ll have my life “all figured out.” As much as I love this spontaneous phase of my life, I also crave stability and I look forward to the day I can settle down, start a family and stay put for a little while.
.
Frankly, I don’t know if anyone ever truly has it “all figured out.” The quote above reassures me that it’s important to embrace life’s uncertainty. Because, when nothing is certain, anything is possible!
.
The trees aren’t worried that their leaves are falling because they know it’s just part of the process. Trust it.

  • Yesterday was one of those FULL days. Like, really full days. We left the house at 8am and didn’t get home till 10pm. If you watched our stories, you saw it all. ☺️ We had a 3 hour photoshoot for Seebz + Neo + Shi in the morning. Then drove an hour for Neo’s audition for a short film. And then another 30 minutes-ish for a casting call for our whole family + grandparents. (Sidenote: many people ask HOW to get their kids into modeling and I have a whole blog post about it on my website- link in profile.) Also, our days with modeling don’t often look like that but this was the perfect fun storm.
•
I had dinner with my BFF and then we headed to my parents house for Seebz to meet with them (they are selling their house and moving and my hubby is a realtor 😉- intentional plug 🔌 right there.) And then we cruised down the road to look at an RV for sale (more on that to come 😏.)
•
By the end of the day, I was spent. I had nothing left but to plop in bed and sleep. 😴 And I’m thankful for a husband who woke up with the kids this morning so I could sleep in.
•
It was a hectic day yesterday and the kids were pretty good but also... terribly wild and crazy during some of it. But when I think about yesterday, I think of our adventure. I think of the beautiful sights we saw, the historic buildings we explored and the laughs we had together. Amidst the chaos, I find so much gratitude. And this constant reminder that today is the gift we have right in front of us. Take hold of it and be thankful. Live life well today, no matter what is on the agenda. Full or run or full of rest, make it matter.

  • The kids have been asking me for a sleepover in The West Wing but there has been carpet ripped up and holes in the walls and we still only have storm windows in there. So, I’ve been putting it off because I know I won’t sleep at all. Arrow still wakes up to nurse and I normally bring her back in bed with me.
•
But we sat on the car ride home last night and I began of thinking of all the parents who have lost children. Who experienced tragedies. Who held their kids in their arms one moment, and the next, they were gone. I don’t know why my mind went there, but it did. Not in anxiety or worry but in a gentle reminder to grasp hold of what I have right now.
•
And I thought of my Neo, asking me over and over again to have a family sleepover with them.
•
So, we got home late, grabbed our pillows and blankets and snuggled up in The West Wing (or old breezeway + 3-season porch we have re-done.)
•
All 5 of the big kids needed to be touching me so I laid there with them all piled up on top of me and around me. And we stayed up late talking. They asked me questions about God and we told stories and prayed together. It was beautiful. We held hands and I told them how thankful I was for each of them and that I loved them exactly for who they are.
•
We softly each took our turn falling asleep. And then... I moved positions throughout the entire night tending to each of them - not sleeping much at all. Holding them, loving on them, being there for them. I wanted to make sure I was right there by them when the sun rose. So I stuck around instead of going back to my bed.
•
It was the sweetest of memories I will cherish.
•
When you feel the urge to show up, listen to it. When you feel that nudge to be near, scoot closer. Today is a beautiful gift you have been given. Let’s make it wonderful and magical and enjoy the ordinary moments that will shape who we are and how we grow. Love your people today. Hold them tight. This life is fleeting and fast and so worth making the most of.

My handle is @meghanjoytoday for a reason- I never want to forget the loveliness in TODAY.

  • It's been a very difficult 3years with both my physical and emotional health. My emotional health got so dark I was scared for myself. ** I knew original causes for the depression were the cancer, family leaving me to go it alone and the addition of prednisone. That put me over the top, almost cost me my life. But I knew if something else was found to help me breath and I got off the prednisone I would be ok. Finally after many different trials the breathing issue was answered. Got off the prednisone along with my GP changing my antidepressant meds and I have turned into me again. Well a better me. As strange as it sounds, but those who have gone through cancer know the change in the way we view life. Also meeting so many wonderful people on IG and my religious beliefs strengthening played a MAJOR roll in getting me through three years of hell. ** I want to sincerely THANK EVERYONE who read, responded or not, prayed and encouraged me. Though I still have many struggles to come. I know I will get through them. I have grabbed that brass ring for the second part of my journey and am going for it all. Hugs and love to all!

  • CROWDING OUT THE NOISE 🙉

Social media has felt a little noisy for me of late.  There’s so much content and updates flying around it can be hard to keep up and can get majorily overwhelming for me. 🤯

At the weekend I took a social media break to help limit the excess noise and the peace and quiet did me the world of good. 💯 
I enjoyed being in the moment more, less stressed and more focused on what was going on around me. Also, I think it’s helped reset how I use social media and I feel less compelled to check my phone every 5 minutes. 📱

Taking a day off social media each week is definitely a new addition to my self care routine and much needed. 💕

When social media is such a large aspect of your work, taking a break can bring up lots of anxiety inducing emotions - what if no one sticks around?!? 😔

The reality for me is that I woke up to a few more followers the next day and everything was the same. Truth is the people that want to stick around will and those that don’t, they obviously didn’t connect with you and your message wasn’t for them anyway. 🔥

How have you shaken up your self care routine lately? Do you take regular social media breaks? .

  • Are you enjoying your todays or always looking to another day that you hope will be better?

We never know how much time we have on this earth, we never know how much time we have anyone else in our lives. What if you stopped looking ahead to a future time and just enjoyed today? Can you imagine how much more happiness you could have in your life?

We are so very blessed for each day we have. And we are blessed with the choice in how we respond to those days. I am choosing to make my days good. How about you? .

  • I love my shakes at home, but I love them even more when I’m on the run! On vacation this week and that typically means, we eat breakfast and dinner and don’t stop the adventures to eat lunch. Instead of snacking on trail mix and junk, I quick mix this up in my water bottle! Perfect boost of nutrition to stay on track!
.
This could also apply to running kids to activities, at work, or whenever you can’t stop to eat. Just leave one in your purse or car! .
I am giving away FREE samples to the first 5 people that respond. Just shoot me a message and I’ll get back to you!

  • A few weeks ago her Vet suggested that she lose five pounds.

I wasn't upset about the discussion in any way.  It was a great reminder of how important being healthy is for her mentally and physically.

Since the discussion we've been more active with her.  This Saturday she hiked two - four thousand foot mountains.  She's now climbed 15 of the four thousand footers in NH.

She had this smile on her face the entire climb.  When we got back to the car, the smile disappeared and her tail stopped wagging.  It was as if she knew we were done hiking for the day. 
It was the best reminder of how important it is to do the things we enjoy doing.

  • Yeah I know, this sounds crazy right? But hear me out...⠀
⠀
We spend SO much time doing things at work, home, and/or school for ourselves, our families, and loved ones but how often do we schedule time to do nothing?⠀
⠀
Silent space to meditate and rest may seem selfish or silly but it's important to your overall wellbeing. I'm sure you know how draining it is to constantly be on the move, which is why you have to fit in time to recharge. Otherwise you'll burn out, and that's never pretty.⠀
⠀
Double tap if you agree ❤ and tag someone who needs to spend some time doing nothing. 😎
