Life throws a lot at us and it’s too easy to get stressed out. What if we decided to see the positives in any situation instead of focusing on the negatives?

Celebrating 2 Years

Ah! I can’t believe it’s been 2 years already. 2 years ago after sitting on this for years just waiting for the right moment to start, not knowing there would never be a right moment, I finally took the leap.

Unstoppable

For as long as I could remember people have doubted me. They’ve said all the things I couldn’t do or wouldn’t be able to do. I never understood why, but it was my driving factor.

I’ve been sitting here staring at a blank page for almost an hour now. My brain literally will not work. I can’t think. There’s nothing running through my head.

Self Talk

Fun fact, not everyone has an inner voice. As someone that’s always had one, that seems weird. My daughter taught me that. She learned it in school. Have you ever thought about the way you talk to yourself? That inner voice inside your head that runs its mouth. Sometimes it says nice things and sometimesContinue reading “Self Talk”

I Didn’t Choose The Mom Life, The Mom Life Chose Me

Literally the mom life chose me. I’ve talked about it before, I never wanted to be a mom. Changing diapers, puke, snotty noses – No thank you. I’ll pass. Obviously the universe had other plans and obviously I was a dumb kid that made dumb mistakes and life started early. I wouldn’t change a thingContinue reading “I Didn’t Choose The Mom Life, The Mom Life Chose Me”
