I’m Back! Here’s Where I’ve Been….

I can hardly believe it’s been almost 3 months since my last post! I’ve had good reason, don’t get me wrong, but I must be honest, it was REALLY hard to stop blogging after spending 20 months passionately devoted to growing my online presence.

I know that I very likely took several steps back in terms of ranking and probably lost many of my regular readers, but now I’m back and can build it back up by once again sharing stories of inspiration along with tools, tips and wisdom that I use to grow both personally and professionally.

Because that’s what I LOVE to do! ๐Ÿ™‚

So where have I been?ย  Well for any of you who have followed my blog, you know I am passionate about maintaining BALANCE.ย  I’ve written several posts on the topic, and while I believe the ultimate goal is to feel balanced across all areas of your life ~ physically, emotionally, financially, mentally, spiritually ~ I acknowledge that sometimes the healthiest thing to do is to temporarily go OUT OF BALANCE to create MORE BALANCE!

And that is why I’ve spent the past few months away from the computer, honoring and nurturing my dedication and devotion to family, as I welcomed my second child, Asher Matthew, into the world in July!

And what a beautiful blessing he is!ย  Being a mother is truly the most extra-ordinary gift I’ve ever experienced, and so as much as I LOVE my work, there is something magical about those first few months with a baby that deserve my full attention and energy.ย  And so that’s where I’ve put it! ๐Ÿ™‚

But now with my older son back in school, and my baby in his third month of life, I’m ready to adjust the balance wheel once again!ย  So I hope I haven’t lost you all ~ because I’m back!

So I’ll be posting weekly again, and look forward to inspiring, educating and empowering you all to make conscious choices in everything you do so that you can truly live life to the fullest. Because that is what life is all about, wouldn’t you agree? ๐Ÿ™‚

Your friend,

  2. Hi Beth!

    It is nice to see you so radiant and happy — congratulations to you and welcome, Asher!

    Thank you for sharing your insight about the need at times to temporarily go out of balance in order to get balanced! I experienced this very truth in July/August in one area of my life — coincidentally it was in the midst of a women’s bible study group that I was doing on “Boundaries & Balance”…..

    I struggled with the fact that I, too, felt the need to temporarily let go of my connection online and other ‘busy-ness’ because of the need to focus on things in my personal life spiritually and relationally. I had been admonished for being out of balance in this situation and really struggled with that, because I see things the same way as you!

    It is great to have you back to inspire us, Beth! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Hi Beth
    It’s been a while and I’m glad to see you back. What a beautiful baby!!! I know what you mean about balance! Our lives take us off line sometimes. Mine did for several months due to various reasons. But it is all part of life. First things first is my motto. I looking forward to your blogs and inspiration.
    Blessings,
    Donna
