Be perfectly imperfect

 

F6484849-9622-4873-ADB3-E7D664C17E72.pngAll silliness aside let’s get serious here moms

.

Who thinks they have to do it all?😬🤚

.

Who here hates asking for help?! 😬🤚

.

Are you trying to be super mom!!??? 😬🤚

.

Stop it

.

Just Stop right now

.

It’s time we let some things go 

.

I use to try to do all things and be all things because I thought it made me a better mom and wife. 

.

who here feels like they never measure up?🤚

.

I had this strange idea that if I could do it all it made me a better mom and wife. Insert me being prideful much…? Ouch that hurts me but it’s true 😮

.

I still struggle sometimes not asking for help and trying to take on too much but I have learned a little better to let go and learn to go with the flow. 

.

Now that my kids are older I wish I just relaxed more. 

.

And it’s ok to ask for help. 

.

We can’t do it all

.

Though for some reason we try so hard to not ask for help

.

Stop stressing yourself out

.

Stop trying to be Perfect 

.

Stop trying to be all 

.

Start loving yourself 

.

Start doing the things you want to do 

.

Start sitting and relaxing and take a deep breath 

.

Take care of yourself 

.

Stop feeling guilty because you fed your kids the same lunch everyday for a month or you just had cold cereal for dinner

.

Stop feeling guilty because you wanted to hide in the closet today because your kids drove you crazy or you had thoughts of running away. 

.

It’s ok we can not do it all and we are never expected to do it all!

.

Learn to ask for help

.

Learn to not sweat the small stuff

.

Hug your babies tight while they are little

Enjoy all the little moments. They pass so quickly. 

.

Now that my kids are older and one is moving away soon, I get teared up as I think back to my boys being little. I was a young mom and I just remember feeling stressed out and wanting to do all these things that supposedly made me a great mom but I never felt like I measured up. I had this high pedestal I was trying to climb but could never quite reach it!! 

That right there made me upset and I felt like every other mom was better than me.

I remember feeling sad a lot,  like why can’t I do everything. This mom stuff is hard.

.

I wish I cared less about my dirty house and just sat and played more with kids. I remember getting so frustrated because I could never keep up. 

Insert me as an older mom I would tell younger me don’t spend so many hours up on hours trying to make a sparkly house and instead have hours and hours of time snuggling with my babies when they wanted to snuggle. 

.

I would stop trying to make things perfect and actually enjoy the perfectly imperfect.

.

It’s ok to like a clean house but don’t let it consume you. 

.

It’s ok if you like to make everything from scratch but I’m telling you your kids could care less so if you are running out of time to do this big thing you built up in your head it’s ok to take short cuts like a premade gingerbread house or premade cookie dough for your fancy Christmas cookies. 

.

Sometimes premade cookie dough is the absolute best thing

.

We can’t make every field trip and we can’t always bake cupcakes for the kids class. Sometimes it’s a plastic box of premade cookies from the bakery and that is ok.

.

These big ideas that you could do better, some days it’s just the fact that you woke up and put on your clothes the right direction is what matters.

.

We just have to let some things go. 

.

We just have to be in the moment

.

The memories our kids love is that we are doing things with them. We are giving them our time.  they don’t care it’s not homemade.  Time is precious and you never get it back…..

Thankful, always

I am thankful for choosing the life we have created. But I had to choose, it didn’t just come on its own. Yes life can just happen and it does but we are ultimately in charge of each path and each decision.

Will we be thankful, always?

I’m thankful, always

-To choose to raise my kids

-To choose a flexible career where I can be there for them and watch them grow into awesome young men and women.

I’m thankful, always.

-It’s not perfect, it’s not easy.

-Sometimes we feel like we’ve done it all wrong but in the end we know we did the best we knew how.

I am losing having my babies around. My two boys the oldest of the three are  growing into great young men. They are starting to choose things and make decisions with out us.  Soon my boys will fly the nest. Then I will only have one child left at home.

This transition in life is strange, sad and exciting all at the same time.

I’m thankful, always.

Thankful that we made choices to have them school at home and to let them be near me and for me to be able to have the flexibility in life to choose what I have chosen to do when I grow up. My most important job is being a mom. I love it through and through. Though it can be  tough sometimes and sometimes I question all our decisions, I know it was the right one.

I am thankful, always.

The blessings and all that we have in store for our future and our kids futures makes me thankful.

Choose moments because each one is a gift.

How are you choosing to create your life you love?

A whole lot of nothing…..

Hello blog world. It’s been awhile since I wrote. Mostly it was because I was so consumed with life and work and everything in between.   Then it became after my consumed life, that I really could not think of anything to write. My inspiration had all burnt out.  It is a whole lot of nothing…

Now I’m trying to get my fire back. There was this fire inside and it’s been snuffed out with to dos and trying to be better and trying to make everyone else happy and trying to figure out life and why it’s the way it is and I just have to stop. It’s numbed me. I will never please everyone and I will never know why life is the way it is.

What I can do is look and see the beauty in all the little moments. I can stop and realize that the moments are what counts. That’s what brought me to writing this whole blog years ago anyway. It’s about choosing moments, finding joy in those times. Not every moment is joy, not everything is perfect but if I find my version of perfect that God has blessed me with,  that’s what counts. That is what matters.  #choosethismoment

Be the Light

6DCF371F-CF38-40A9-A581-09C9632AE31BAre you shining your light?
There is a lot of darkness in this world but there is so much good too. Don’t let the sad, dark stories that try to take over consume the soul. Know that for all that others see that is bad there is good within it. We sometimes have to look hard but it is there.

Those who have a light to shine, shine it. Don’t be afraid. Be a voice. Share your story. Do what it is that is calling in on your heart. Hear that voice telling you that you are worth it. Believe in yourself.


Psalm 36:9 For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light

Light is invisible, and yet everything is invisible until light strikes it. As with God, we can’t see him but when we get in his “Light” we see and know his love.

How can you be a shining light today?

finding some good even on the not so good days

Doesn’t it seem that there is so much negativity around us? Are we letting it ruin our days and our moods?

A few years back I had been reading about how to make your day better, more positive and more successful. Some of the suggestions were to stop reading news or having negative things show up on your face book or whatever it is you looked at in the morning and to choose to shut out the negativity. I decided I liked this idea and so I made a goal to rid things that were uneccessary and things that were negative or not life giving or fulfilling. I unfollowed, unliked on my social media or stopped reading news altogether.

But lately I have found myself slowly allowing these negative things back in and have found how it has really altered my moods. I am not saying that you ignore what is going on in life but not to make it the main focus of your everyday. There is power when you choose what you will allow and what you won’t. I want to add positivity in my day. I want to find joy so I figured out the best way that worked for me.

The last few months of allowing negativity and reading all the things that are wrong with this world and others opinions and the hatred that goes on, I have become saddened over things that I have no control over. I want to fix everything. I want everything to be better. I want people to love. I want families to love each other even when they disagree. So here I pile all of this junk on to me as if its my job to carry the weight of the world on my back alone.

Fast forward to yesterday morning it seemed to be one thing after another that was going wrong. I could feel the crabby mood just brewing inside.

First off the mornings are getting darker as the season changes and when my alarm went off it was pitch black and I was cold. Not happy about that. Then as I woke up I realized there was a  huge pain in my neck because I slept on it wrong so I could barely turn my head to the right with out shooting pains. Then when I put my jeans on they felt too tight because I have probably been eating too much junk lately because of having too much on my plate and making poor food choices, oh and the lack of exercise has not helped. Then when I made my coffee I accidentally put it on the full carafe with only half water and it came out super watery and tasted like dirt so there went my morning coffee. With the darkness I forgot to mention I had pushed snooze on my alarm and barely had time to get ready because we rolled out of bed too late so I didn’t get breakfast. It was just so many things starting on this already grumpy, dark, grey morning.

Where was it? Where was my joy at today? I wasn’t finding it.

I felt the heavy weight of grump up on me. Trying to smile but nothing wanted to come out. All these stupid little things making it into one big bad day.  I dropped my daughter off at her ice skating lesson and then I went to go run some errands to make good use of my time. As I drove quietly on this gloomy day, I was pondering what was going through my mind. why? Why so upset about silliness? There’s a lot worse that could be going on.Why was I making everything into such a huge mountain?

Where was the goodness in the day?There had to be something good about today.

So I pulled into the post office to grab my email and I sat there thinking. I was choosing to let all these things ruin my morning. Just because I can’t control the weather or the fact that seasons change, I could choose to be thankful for the breath I had that morning. Thankful that I was able to wake up and take my daughter to do the thing she loves most. Thankful that I was capable of so much more than complaining and letting the negativity take over me and so right there I chose to change my mindset. I realized how I have been letting so much negativity consume me and that I could choose to find the good in the day even when the negativity tries to consume me. I will choose this moment and not allow it. I said a prayer and thanked God that I was alive today and that I was tired of feeling like it was my job to carry the weight on my shoulders. And right then I could slowly feel the weight lift off of me. I knew that the day would be a little bit brighter.

I could do what I knew  how to do best but I can’t do everything. That’s being me. That’s shining my light because many feel its their job to carry the weight when its not. We can’t change everything but we can be a small change. We can carry our self with joy and light and show a smile as we pass by. We can make a difference in the darkness even when we feel small. We can. And we can choose to find good in our not so good day.
