Wow, it’s been a while seen I’ve written a post! I have been busy working on my new real estate investment business since December. It’s been exciting, stressful, scary, and fun so far. Going into this, I knew this would be difficult for so many reasons. I expected the neck pain, fatigue, and general day to day busyness in raising my children. However, the day after Valentine’s Day, my teenage son scared me with an intense emotional outburst. As with almost every teenage boy, it started with a girl. One he liked at the time. And after discussing it with some friends, discovered something I’d forgotten: I’m not the only one experiencing this, and we found it immensly helpful to KNOW we are not alone.
After taking a six week break from progressing with my business, last Saturday I attempted to start reading my paperwork to refresh my new knowledge. Unfortunately, it was very difficult for me to concentrate as a result of my son’s severe mood swings.
I am LDS (a Mormon), and watched the Church’s General Conference today from the comfort of my home. The importance of marriage and family seemed to come from every speaker, and it occurred to me that my family has GREATLY struggled lately.
I asked myself, “why haven’t you written about this? No wonder you’re always stressed out.” As I thought more about this, it occurred to me that just because I did not have time to write a novel, it didn’t mean that I shouldn’t write ANYTHING!
So I’m opening up my word documents again, and will write about the things that make me happy or cause me stress, and I’ll even blog about some of it.
