This is the theme of my life… “What now?” Particularly as a parent. Particularly right now.
Right after my first son was born, I was lost. I felt the world around me was speeding up and I was coming to a full, complete, unavoidable stop. Who was I? Would I ever catch up (with life, friends, exercise, news, sleep, pursuits) I had that little baby, and what now?
I have continued to ask that question as we have both grown. A sibling. A rough spot in marriage. A new house. Starting Mamalode. Friendships. Politics. What now?
A movement has begun: What now?
A moment was lost: What now?
A life begins: What now?
It is the gut check. The beginning of a new road. The start of a plan.
So here we go, friends. A month to explore this very question and the moments we are forced to ask it. Usually we ask because somehow we have found the precipice and everything is changed.
Do we jump? Run? Hide? Fight? Crash?
For me, it is all of the above… plus a healthy (ish) dose of trying to find the right words to map my course.
What now? You tell me.
