Since becoming a mom, I feel like I’m constantly operating on borrowed time (more on that here). The older Beckett gets, the less time I feel I have to do everyday ‘normal’ activities. Things like taking a bath (HA!) or reading the news are just time consuming and time that I either don’t have or time I’d rather spend playing with my child. And the more of myself I find giving my child, the less I can identify with the girl (I’m 30 years old, can I call myself a woman yet?!) that I once was.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not considering my lack of self-identity as a bad thing. I had a child and my life turned upside down…and that’s okay! I am still working to find my new ‘mom’ identity, so long as it doesn’t include wearing mom jeans. 🙂
So with the search for my new identity comes a focus on things that are quick: quick meals, quick workouts, quick conversations – QUICK QUICK QUICK! Enter in – The Newsette.
I was introduced to this lovely newsletter a couple of months ago. The Newsette promises everything you want to read in the A.M. all in one place. That’s a pretty bold claim! I figured I would give this new relationship a trial run and assumed we’d break up in a day or two when the newsletter wasn’t living up to its claim. And yet, here we are a few months later and I’m writing a blog post about it! Silly me.
Sure enough, every morning a delightful and QUICK (it’s the common theme!) email arrives in my inbox, full of current news, inspiration and motivation. Most of the time, I can finish the email before finishing my coffee. #Win
So imagine my excitement when The Newsette launched their new website! Now if I find myself with a little extra time (mostly on days I train into the city for work), I can head straight to their website for an extra dose of positivity and inspiration. Don’t believe me, watch this interview with Katia Beauchamp, CEO of Birchbox and tell me you’re not motivated!
So in an effort to live by my motto (quick!) I’ll stop rambling about my love affair with The Newsette and encourage each of you to take a peak around their new website and be sure to sign up for the newsletter by clicking here!
