Reboot: Charging Up Your Batteries

Reboot: Charging Up Your Batteries

GETTING BACK TO CENTER

This past weekend, I took a trip home, and it was more cathartic than I even imagined it could be.

San Diego was everything I forgot I even needed right now, and it made me feel centered again. I walked the beach with my headphones on, caught up with a friend who’s in this same season of life, ate mangoes and avocados, soaked up the sun, and played card games with my family.

WHAT IF WE RECHARGED OURSELVES AS OFTEN AS WE DO OUR PHONES?

Now, I live to travel but this time, it was about me feeling like myself again. (I think I’ve been so caught up in being a new mom I forgot how to just be me.) With all the learning, celebrations, and preparation it’s no wonder I felt a little off-center.

CENTERING LOOKS DIFFERENT FOR EVERYBODY BUT THIS IS WHAT WORKED FOR ME.

When I returned home yesterday I had a clearer mind and a renewed attitude towards where and who I am today.

Being around so much familiarity reminded me of what my days used to look like, what hobbies I used to be into, and all the tiny things in my day that I once enjoyed.

I’ve bought my self a journal and will be using it as a planner, creative outlet, and task manager. I decided to take up water-coloring, too. Something has switched in my brain (and I’m still not sure when) that has made me less patient and I plan to get away from that. I’ve quit my 9 to 5 and decided to care for our home and children full time. Times are changing around here!

Today is also Love Becomes Her birthday and that always feels like a fresh new start. I’m looking forward to some fresh new changes on the blog and personal charging up too.

THIS POST IS YOUR REMINDER TO PUT YOURSELF FIRST ONCE IN A WHILE. TAKE CARE OF YOU. DON’T GET LOST IN YOUR OWN SHUFFLE.

Find what charges your batteries and just reboot yourself.

I created a few images for you guys to share in your stories (you can also Pin them for later) and begin centering yourself the best ways you know how. How do you stay grounded?

What’s in your shop?

Stickers first and foremost. I started the shop after I realized I wasn't the only paper girl who was itching for simple stickers for women of color. You'll find digitally illustrated sticker sheets, die cut stickers, and printable/digital stickers. 

Limited-time products also include: magnets, bookmarks, post cards, and greeting cards. 


How’d you get started?

I started the blog almost five years ago as an outlet for myself, but it quickly transitioned into being just about my hobbies: travel, taking photos, and scrapbooking.

Through my blogging journey I discovered bullet journaling and my scrapbooking passions were re-ignited. I began sharing my journey with these and quickly saw a need for the stickers I was already making for myself. I gave myself six months to open up a shop, and half way through my time frame we lived through a pandemic. During my time at home I now had NO MORE excuses, so I opened up my shop!


Why the name Love Becomes Her?

I started the blog on Halloween night and one of my favorite movies (Death Becomes Her) was on. I was a major cynic back in the day but I felt that the name suited the blog because at the time so many of my blog posts were around my long-distance relationship with my now-husband. I always assumed I'd change the name later, but I think I just love it too much. It reminds me of how far I have come with learning love
