Back when my littles were little and carefree and my hair was blonde and I wasn’t turning 40 ! #butimokwithit#ithink. Disneyland is my MOST FAVOURITE place in the world.
I snapped this pic the other night. He is just shy of an inch of being taller than me. He has a mustache growing, and his voice is changing. But just like I saw glimpses of his grown up self when he was small, I sometimes see glimpses of the little boy that loved to nap in my lap. I’m so proud of the young man he is becoming. Thank You Father, for this wonderful life 🙏🏻💗🙏🏻 #momlife#boymom#singlemom#singlemomirl#littlemoments#nofilter#hewouldhatethis#butimokwithit
Ever had a bad day?
Like truly awful?
Today I felt like a full on failure as a mom. Don't worry, I'm still working through that one because I know I'm not.
But I felt like I was letting down my kids by being a bad mom.
My oldest has troubles listening, like all the time.. so I litterally spend all day either nagging or yelling at her. And that slowly eats away at my positivity.
For the most part, I think I hide it pretty well.
But today my husband could tell.
He could tell I needed to remove myself from my kids.
He gave me the opportunity to go and spend an hour uninterrupted by myself in our room (uninterrupted time NEVER happens)
I could have done some work, or read some of my personal development to try and bring me out of this pre melt down state, or had a nap (those black circles are no joke)
But all I wanted was to shut my brain off from those terrible emotions I was feeling.
So I dug out some headphones (to drown out all other noise and truly be by myself) and listened to some music.
It took an hour to bring me from "I'm the worst mom" to "I'll make it through." One thing I'm slowly learning is, it's okay to ask for help, because it's extremely hard to pour from an empty cup, I should know.
It's not selfish to take care of yourself, it's 100% necessary, even when there are 3 other people to take care of.
The holidays are the hardest time for anyone to stay on track. I’m doing the best I can with Still enjoying life and not stressing about food so much. I feel like I have finally reached a point in my life where I’m embracing my body and all its imperfections. I will continue to work my ass of though, once I get through all these Christmas cookies 🍪 🎄 Females, love yourself, be proud of your body. #loveyourself#perfectimperfections#teamnoabs#butimokwithit#bestself
I believe in the importance of family even though I limit my interactions with mine. I am a complete introvert, socially awkward borderline recluse who works a very socially engaging job. I believe in the importance of HBCUS even though i didn't attend one. I believe in education even though I don't support everyone earning a Bachelors degree. I've read comics since middle school but still cannot readily remember my favorite characters names. I can lay in bed all day watching movies just to get up and go to the movies. I believe in traveling but I'm not adventurous. I talk about entrepreneurship but am unwilling to take the leap required to move forward. I am a hermit who produced (of course wth some help) an overly social outgoing offspring and married the same 💆🏾 I've struggled with depression, ADD and anxiety most of my life but didn't get treated until my mid thirties. I went to school for counseling but wouldn't go see a counselor...I am a muthafu*kin work in progress. So I don't judge anyone because I am too busy trying to figure my own sh*t out!! #struggling#butimokwithit I am happy with where I am now and looking forward to getting better. One thing that won't change...I'm an introvert. If you haven't heard from me, send a damn text. If I haven't been over, it might be too many damn people at your house. Nothing against you and yours but I'm jus uncomfortable. But ask anyone, I'm dependable, loyal and generous. Well that's all folks. Decided to stop hiding on social media. Stay tuned for more posts from 🤗ME!
