A little break

I’ve been thinking a lot about yesterday’s post. About how much I want to be a balanced, stable, peaceful, happy person.

Have you guys heard the saying that it takes 21 days to break or create a habit?

Well, I’ve decided that I am going to give myself 21 days to create new, helpful habits. For example, starting tommorrow, I will start my new bedtime routine. I also want to start other habits like meditating every morning, doing yoga every day, and yoga nidra every afternoon.

One of my biggest obstables to a bedtime routine is this – blogging. Every night after Nathan goes to bed I go to my computer to write that day’s post. I’ll read a few message groups, read other blogs, and think about what I want to say for the day. Then I finally get around to writing the daily post. By that point I’m tired but then I remember this and that that’s still left to do. So by the time I’m done it’s usually at least 10 or 11pm. And then I’m too tired so I don’t want to do anything “healthy” – I just want to read a little or veg out, then go to sleep.

So I’ve decided to take a break from blogging for a little while, so I can try and establish a new routine/pattern.

I will try to at least post quick updates about Nathan. It’s his blog in any case, even though I’ve mostly thoroughly hijacked it.

If you are used to checking every day or two, I am sorry. I promise I will get back to daily updates once I have better habits established. I promise I will update at least once a week.

Thank you so much everyone for caring and reading about us. I hope to come back recharged and full of energy and positive habits.


  1. Use your Draft function and post when you can. Write when you can, or are in the mood, and set posts to show every day or so, in a queue… Writers don’t always write Mondays story on Sunday night. 🙂

    Hi Marcela
    I will miss your posts but you have to take care of you. Thank you so much for sharing what you learn in class. I am also going to try and add a bedtime routine, meditation, etc. As I also feel unbalanced and like I am running on empty.
    Hugs to Nathan & you.

  3. Marcela, I will miss your posts, too. I think you are so right about blogging sucking up your evenings. I get going around 9:30 or 10 and before I know it, it’s 1:00 a.m.!

    Please stay in touch. Take care of yourself, let us know how it goes. Taking care of yourself is so important, it makes us all better mothers.
