Even in the darkness you have to try to find the light. 🌈
I’ve been sharing with no reservation our current struggles getting our little girl to sleep in her bed. 😴 Why have I shared so openly? Because I KNOW I’m not the only one who feels the way I have felt the last few weeks.
Sleep deprived. Irritable. Angry. Guilty. Stressed. Worried. Anxious. 😢 You name it I have probably felt it these past few weeks. It’s HARD not sleeping and getting up having to perform all your mom duties and job duties! But I am HUMAN... we all are. We sometimes have to climb a major uphill battle. Life is not perfect!! We deserve to give ourselves some grace.
The most important message i can share is that in these emotions, you must not fall victim to them and stay down. Find a way to focus on the positive. Live life with a grateful heart. ❤️Gratitude and anxiety cannot co-exist. Retrain your brain to know you’ll get through the hard. Focus on the good!
I did this yesterday and it had a MAJOR impact on my day. My child is healthy. 🙏🏻 She is smart. She is sassy. She is a little love. She adores her people. For all of that? I am so friggin grateful!
If you’re struggling to find the light 💡, reach out for help! A doctor, a spouse, a friend, ME!! Just do not struggle alone! You deserve to live your best life now!
Today was just one of those mornings we both ended up in coral, so had to snap a pic!! Realized that I don't have enough pics of me with this little sweet one and or two just me in present in pictures period. How do you balance not always being behind the scenes?
Bonus part to this post this little ray of sunshine is sweet, cuddle bug, mischievous, has the biggest smile always, fearless, strong, and loves her necklaces!!! She says ma a million times a day and to be honest it never really gets old!!! I got told and swim class that she looks just like me which was so special because everyone always says she looks like my husband! With kid number two I try to be conscious of the differences especially my time giving her one on one time and just as much attention. Her sis will be going to day summer daycare for a few days this summer to hold their spots and I have a good chunk of time to have just her and I!! Can't wait Laney Bug it will be a great mommy and me summer!! #summerbreak#sunshine#mommysminime#raisinggirls#momlife#taketimeforpics#mompreneur#laneybug
The struggle is real y’all. Day number too many to count of Sophia losing her shit at bedtime. I’m tired, I’m frustrated and it’s making me feel like a bad mommy. I know that’s not true but holy shit when you’re tired does your inner mean girl take over or what?? I’ll be over here praying for a nap, and a change! It has to come at some point!!
Fueling my body with the nutrients it needs instead of the crap that I’ve been convincing myself I want.
The past few weekends I have binged on all the crap! I totally preach and believe that it’s all about balance and have been super successful helping others and myself with this method... Clean eating most of the time and a treat here or there!! But eating mostly crap and very little clean food has not served my body!! I’ve been bloated and I can definitely tell fluffier than I normally am!
So Monday I started a gentle mild 3 day cleanse and I’m already noticing so many differences!! PLUS, I’m recognizing the places where I’d been mindlessly eating- my daughter’s leftovers, a handful of grapes here or there, a bite of the kid’s dessert. It seems harmless in the moment but it’s adding up!
I’m super excited to see how my body is affected after the 3 days!! Stay tuned for the results! Are you eating what your body needs???
Side porch sittin’, superfoods in hand, sun is shining...I feel like I should break into song 🎶 These are a ew of my favorite things 🎶 .
In all seriousness though ... we are #365ers ... not sure what that means, let me tell you. It means we drink a shake a day and I have for 3.5 years. Inadvertently she has too for 2.5 years 😝 she asks for it now. She knows it tastes yummy. I know it’s giving her body the nutrients she doesn’t always get from food. We’re blessed that she’s a good eater (loves her broccoli and peas!) but the way food is grown and harvested unfortunately the soil lacks some of the basic nutrients our bodies need. .
Some may say it’s too expensive. I’ll take a bag of this every month over doctors copays and prescription costs.
