Coffee Chatter: Part III

Coffee Chatter | That Girl Myra

What up, party people?! It’s been a while, huh?

While I had every good intention to start blogging again weeks ago, I found that I just didn’t really have anything to say. And sometimes, it’s perfectly okay to not say anything at all.

But, over the last week, things were happening and I wanted to talk about them & share my thoughts. So back to the blog, I come! Haha.

I’m just going to ramble off a bunch of personal thoughts today, but I’ve got other topics to dig into as the days go by. Good? Cool!

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that…

+ Mom cliques are a thing, y’all. And they are not cute. Are you seriously wanting to teach your children this behavior?

+ I’ve always let what people will think influence decisions I make. And while I’ve told myself I won’t do that, I still find myself falling into this trap more often than not. Lately, I’ve been making decisions that make ME happy and you know what…I am happier for it. I don’t owe anyone an explanation of what I do or why. And I’m embracing that 100% from now on.

+ As an extension of the above, I’m learning to stop passing judgment on others. I’m not always great at it, but I’m going to really make it a point to walk away from the gossiping and snarking. If I don’t want to be worried about what others think/say about me, I can afford to give them the same respect.

+ I’ve really enjoyed spending the last few weeks trying to hone in on being a better me. Sometimes it’s hard to give ourselves grace, but I’ve been making it a point to give myself more of it. I may not spend every waking moment with Sofia, a busy schedule may mean I didn’t do that extra load of laundry & I may forget to make dinner some nights, but at the end of the day, we’re all only human.

Ahhhh, I’ve been so philosophical and deep today, haven’t I? Haha. I clearly needed to get those thoughts off my chest, so that’s good. And now, time to hop outta here and watch another round of Moana with Sofia! 🙂

I would love to hear what’s been going on with you guys while I’ve been away, so please share it all! Promise to work on getting back into blog reading/commenting and catching up over the next few days.

    First of all…your design looks fabulous! LOVE the colors. It is definitely hard to give ourselves grace, but I think the important thing is that we continue to try. 🙂 Hope you have a great week!

      Thank you, love! I’m glad to have some colors back on the blog. The black and white stiffness was starting to make me cringe a bit, haha! xo

    Welcome back! I took a bit of a hiatus myself – only about a week, but it felt longer to me. I’m just enjoying summer, friend and family time, and busy at work as usual. And like you, I just had nothing to say on my blog. Not in a bad way, in like a …. no news is good news way. It’s to see an update from you and I always enjoy your Instagrams (especially of your adorable little lady)

      I have to say, while I enjoy hiatuses, I sure do love still reading posts from people like you. I often find your posts capture a lot of what I’m thinking and well, then I don’t feel like I need to recreate the wheel and say it again 🙂 I’m glad we’re back in blogland though for the time being xo

      Thank you, lovely! I don’t exactly know when or why I felt the need to start doing it, but I swear it’s been incredible. Being more in tune with myself has brought a totally different kind of peace to my life & I love it! xo
