My Mental Health Battle

I have gone back and forth for months on writing this post. My mental health battle stems back years and years. I literally battle with depression and anxiety every single day. After writing about my miscarriage story, I realized just how healing and therapeutic writing about my experiences was. However, I still couldn’t bring myself to talk about this topic.

It seems that it is so much easier to write about something that I have walked through and conquered than it is to write about something I still struggle so heavily with. Here I am encouraging others to write about their struggles and experiences, yet holding back on one of my hardest battles.

Some days kids can be perfect angels. Other days, eh, not so much. For the sake of my sanity, I am thoroughly hoping that my kids are the latter today, because after last night and this morning, I feel like I’m going to lose it. To elaborate, here’s my #momlife story of the day:

DID SOMEONE SAY NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION?

New Year’s Resolution or nah?

New Year’s Resolutions have never really been my thing. I have seen so many people that decide that they want to make a change at some point throughout the year, and for whatever reason they choose to wait until the New Year. While I understand the concept of turning over a new leaf, it truly baffles me to wait on a holiday. If you really want to make a change, today is the best day. But of course, that’s just my opinion. Anyways, instead of New Year’s Resolutions, this year I decided to make some long-term life goals.

Homeschooling: Pros, Cons, and Misconceptions

It has become extremely common to come across stories about a child being abused in day care, a teacher mistreating a student, or even students retaliating against their school. Before my husband and I even considered dating, we both discussed that we would like our future children to be home schooled. Once our first child was conceived, it was set in stone. No matter what sacrifices were necessary, we would be homeschooling.

hide and seek -- adults play it, too

As most of you know, yesterday was the first day of my 31 Days of May Blogging Challenge that I am hosting. Each day I post three writing prompts to the Facebook challenge group. Writing is hard, but coming up with creative prompts that everyone in the group can relate to is even harder. Yesterday, I was having trouble coming up with new prompts so I started to pray about it. And that’s when it hit me. Hide and seek.

working from home with kids

From a young age, I have always had the desire to be a mom. I also knew that I wanted to be a stay-at-home mom. When I had my oldest, I just didn’t see that luxury in my cards. Four years later, and here I am: full-time blogger, part-time social media evaluator, author, and getting ready to start a business! As you can imagine, my day-to-day life is pretty hectic. There is a lot of research involved in my day, along with being a caretaker to my littles, homeschooling, working, and also trying to make time for myself. One of the most common questions I get is, “How do you manage working from home with kids?”

Short answer: GOALS.
