...the tough get going... Hey Mommas, No, they don't get going as in they run away. They get the ball rolling. They take action. They get stuff going. I am coming to realize just how true this statement is. It's really easy to run and hide, it's really difficult to stay and work through a … Continue reading When the Going Gets Tough
26 weeks pregnant today and if I haven't already said this, my pregnancy is flying by. Absolutely flying by. Pregnancy changes: more indigestion, groin/abdomen muscle soreness, belly slowly growing more (i'm still able to fit into my low waist pants and all my shirts, but have switched over to loose, flowy pants for comfort, I … Continue reading Receiving Love and Support Can Be Hard
Ok, where did yesterday go? I totally didn't realize I didn't post until about 7 am this morning. Dangit! One day away from my 7 days straight of posting. Starting that up again today as well as putting a daily reminder on my phone to tell me to get writing. (this is the "oops!" of … Continue reading Baby Registries, Yoga, and “Oops”s!
It's Monday: I'm officially 25 weeks along! 🙂 I removed the photo I put in yesterday's blog and decided to start fresh today and snap a picture this morning.

I think that title is too long. Oops. How are you doing today? I can't get enough of this spring air here in East Tennessee. It's so crisp. I'm glad nature is such a soother and nurturer to me. I don't know what I'd turn to if sunshine and fresh air weren't options available to … Continue reading One Step in the Right Direction Can Go A Long Way
I almost didn't post today, but I gave myself ONE goal this week, to post each day, and goshdarnit, I will post every day. I'm constantly caught off guard by how UP I can feel one day (such as yesterday) and how DOWN I can feel another (such as today). What I'm realizing is that … Continue reading Dealing With Anger
Every Friday I say goodbye two days early to my "week" of pregnancy. I'm gearing up for week 25 in my mind already and this week has been filled with.. questions, calm, doubting, and peace. Overall there is peace. That's good. Overall there is joy. That's good. The cracks feel filled with fear. I … Continue reading Hey Life – Bring It On.
One. Day. At. A. Time. Or in my case, one MOMENT at a time. Lots of deep breaths. Lots of quickly brushed away tears. And currently, an iced coffee that I forgot to order as decaf, sorry baby. ----- This morning my car got towed. $90. ----- I have a second round job interview in … Continue reading How to Get Through Tough Situations
Short term goal: Post here every day until next Wednesday. My perfectionist type A personality wants to make a much more grand goal (every day until I give birth!!) but my reality knows that my anxiety, fear, or life often trainwrecks my grand goals. I'm setting small goals now and going to check posting here … Continue reading Small Goals, Long Term Results
