This season of life. The new normal. This crazy adventure. The unknown.
These are all terms that have been used in our household over the last six months. My intentions with Married to SEO was to take everyone along on our journey, well, that journey made a very sudden stop on March 6, 2020. That was the final day that I was outside of our home without anxiety, without a mask, and enjoying a date day with my husband that wasn’t in our home or back patio.
I never intended to take a break from blogging, when this current season of life began for us in March I really felt I would write more to keep my mind clear but instead I found other outlets that allowed me to step away fully from the internet and the constant rabbit holes you inevitably go down, especially when it comes to COVID-19.
I also knew, after a few too many hours on social media at the beginning of this pandemic, that a lot of people were struggling more than I was and their constant negativity was leaving me feeling very unsettled and having a glass or two too many of wine.
But at last, here I find myself, in my new little cubby away from all the noise deciding that this current season of life is most likely not temporary, but more a way we are going to navigate into a new way of living our best lives. I enjoy sharing my thoughts. I enjoy sharing the adventures that my husband’s career in SEO provides us with. We, however, have zero commitments for the remainder of 2020 but hopefully, that does not mean we won’t have adventures, most now just take place in the day to day of living together 24/7.
I laughed the other day when I realized that it has been almost six months since the rest of the world began working and living together with their spouse 24/7. I felt lucky, I had a good six-month head start on y’all, and boy am I glad I did. I can’t even begin to imagine dealing with the constant change around us in the outside world along with our inside world also trying to adapt to change. I am not just talking about myself getting used to my husband being in the house all the time, he has also had to adjust to my constant need to have our home look like a Pottery Barn catalog shoot. Almost a year into being together all day and I think he has finally adapted, he may have also recently purchased noise-canceling air pods.
I may not be documenting the typical married life antics that come with being Married to SEO, but I can assure you they will still be humorous at both our expense, they may not be consistent but I have realized that I need to document this time because we can all agree on one thing – it is a very unique time we are experiencing. I can promise I won’t bring the negative train into this station because if I have learned anything in the last six months, I do not have the time or the energy for negativity and I am determined to come out of 2020 better than when it began and that leaves me zero time for anything other than positive thoughts and mindset.
Every day is not positive but there can be something positive found in every single day, even during a pandemic, even during a lockdown, even during the last 35 days when I have not left the house.
And honestly who knows, maybe I will take this blogging thing seriously and finally put some of those Amazon affiliate links to work and show you all the things we’ve just had to have during this season of life. Let’s face it, we are all a little over the “swipe up” life, so I probably will just stick to my craziness of sharing the randomness that is, Married to SEO (while living through a pandemic)!
