What happens when your breath lives in your chest? When anxiety is your first response to the unknown? When tightness and judgement replace openness? — Do you run? Do you submit to the relentless waves of depression? Do you give up and in to the fear of what you can’t control? — You can invite … Continue reading How can you love yourself deeper today?
I've always struggled to find the RIGHT words. I've never struggled to find words. In fact, the opposite. Silence is harder. At least in person. It has been easy for me to ignore this blog for a year. So many excuses..the baby needs my attention, Netflix is better than writing, who wants to hear what … Continue reading and so it begins again
Like I mentioned yesterday, I'm working to reduce the STUFF around me. Can you even spot my baby in this picture? This is from just TWO bags of donated clothes from loving friends. Mommas. We have SO much stuff. We are SO blessed. We are living in abundance. Our society is operating around stuff stuff … Continue reading Thrift At Home Mom
...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
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. After a short cardio session (15 minutes) on the exercise bike and some stretches and core work on the exercise ball, I'm up to 18 lbs … Continue reading 25 Weeks & The Law of Motivation
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
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
This week I've asked myself tough questions and fought hard for my happiness. There have been more downs than ups and returning to a baseline seems questionable but I choose to do it anyway. So for today, I'm going to share with you what I am thankful for in the middle of this time of … Continue reading Thankful In Spite.
I heard this phrase, create before you consume, in one of Amy Porterfield's podcasts a few days ago. It keeps bouncing into my brain every morning (good work Amy!), challenging me to keep my hands off my phone to scroll other people's posts, news headlines, or check emails. I had been doing it backwards before, … Continue reading “Create Before You Consume”
I fell off the edge of the earth on Saturday and Sunday, but I'm back. I want to share my journey of pregnancy (22 weeks today!) and what I learn during this time. The thing with this season of my life is that it is very deep. It's raw. It's full of what I often refer … Continue reading Choosing To Continue Is Hard.
