In an effort to organize and consolidate my life, I have decided it's time to draw boundaries.
During the past year my family and I have experienced a multitude of blessings; opportunities that have opened many doors and formed great relationships. Since we have decided to continue to share portions of our life with the world, by way of vlogging, a few problems have developed. Most of which have affected me, because I manage most of that content.
I naturally have an outgoing and extroverted personality. That portion of me thrives in the social media and YouTube arenas. However, I have a counter balance also. I am an introvert.
I know that seems strange and unlikely, but it's true. I can be the life of the party, but when I'm done I shut down. I love to smile, but I can't force one. I like people, but not too many at once.
I have figured out at the age of 33, it's okay to live as both an extrovert and an introvert. It is this truth that requires a redrawing of the boundaries that will protect me and my well being as a wife, mother, and budding entrepreneur.

...And this is where I have struggled. The extrovert in me wants to share EVERYTHING, but the introvert in me shudders at the thought. I am determined to be authentic in ALL of my endeavors, while taking care to protect the moments that I hold dear.
