Holding Myself Back

Being pregnant is an interesting experience. Often I find myself saying, I can't do that or I can't eat that because I'm pregnant. While I want to have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby, sometimes I find pregnancy is an excuse to hold myself back.

Over the course of the last few weeks I have found myself stepping out of fearfulness and living my life more fully. We've gone hiking a few times, stand up paddle boarding, jet skiing, and we participated in a session at the temple.

Through these experiences I have learned that life is to be enjoyed and it is so much sweeter when we don't hold ourselves back. Having something to look forward too really brightens a day or a week.
