A poem for the hard times. To Be featured in my upcoming book, debuting January 2022.,
Over time I put together a few little practices that made having a rest day easier on me. Maybe you’re experiencing burnout or just having a hard time, or have depression like I do. If so, I want you to know that you deserve rest and rejuvenation. It’s not just a luxury, it’s about health!
5 Winning Ways To Process Your Emotions!
I noticed a loongg time ago that there was something called “Toxic Positivity”. I didn’t know what it was called back then, all I knew was that it didn’t feel good. It didn’t feel good that when I was upset or hurting people would tell me to look on the bright side, or be grateful for the good things in life, or to “just be positive”.
Hello my beautiful readers! So today’s post is a spontaneous share. I started to write earlier but of course got distracted by my lovely children and incredibly messy house. I haven’t been up to doing much besides resting so the house is in definite disarray. I should mention that I’ve been dealing with some health issues that, though minor, have really taken a toll on me. To deal I’ve mostly been watching Netflix and sleeping a lot. I’ve been agitated and burnt out. I finally decided to do something about it and saw my doctor yesterday, which brings us to today’s post.
Hey guys so this post is late but it was really difficult for me to write this post, especially when I haven’t been feeling great about my appearance.

I get super excited about fall. I love coziness, fall colors, cool weather especially when the sun is out, all things pumpkin, and mostly, the excitement of all the fall and winter holidays and festivities coming up. I won’t even let myself have my pumpkin spice latte until the official autumn equinox (which usually falls- lol- on the 22nd of September) because the first day of fall is just that special to me lol. As I’ve become a mother caring for our 5 kids, I also realize that fall is a time for some serious self care. So today I wanted to put together a self-care list for fall. Whether you love fall, or can’t stand it ( you monster! jk 😉 ), this list will help make the season feel so much better, I promise. Here it goes:
How to handle quarantine with kids. This post shows one mom’s routine and how she manages to be a positive influence on her children during the pandemic.
Hello beautiful readers! I never intended to write this blog post, in fact it just came to me today as I was ruminating in my emotions, and as they say in the therapy/self help world, things started coming up for me. I’m an expressive person. This is who I am. When I’m not doing okContinue reading “Am I TOO Honest??”
This is a spontaneous post. I had been waiting on writing another post, waiting to write a “Marriage Update” post, where I could talk about how we talked it out and everything was all like “Valentine’s Day is every day!” like corny people say, bleh. Don’t worry, talk we did. But we are still processing.Continue reading “I’m Tired, And Responding To My Depression”
So let me get the greeting out of the way. It’s out of the way. Excuse my curtness but this is one of those interaction like when you call your BFF like “girrrllll.” and then just get right into it, so here it goes. I’m depressed AF because I’m not getting enough support. Let meContinue reading “Angry SAHM Rant!!”
