Back to the basics

Since the anniversary date of Jimmy’s passing which was October 19th, I haven’t really been motivated to do anything. I haven’t been sleeping well and my anxiety is on 1000% along with fatigue and migraines. I work hard and get little rest but usually I’m still amped about working my online stores and my writing…

The Planner Girl

I was recently asked in a podcast interview “What makes me smile?”. I answered by saying that waking up makes me smile for many reasons but there are other reasons that would have made that conversation very long. My children brighten up my life every day but that’s a given. One thing most people don’t…

Chapter 41: A New Beginning

Hey there! I know I’ve been MIA for a while. I took a much needed break from social media and writing but something also changed in me while I was away. I celebrated a birthday and the reality of getting older hit me pretty hard. I started thinking about all the years that have gone…

Whenever I see people going through hard times I naturally try to encourage them. This time it’s been challenging.

Widowed and Waiting

I’m going to be vulnerable and transparent as I write this because I know there are other women like me. Women who need the reassurance of knowing that they are not alone. This post is for the many widows out there waiting for “what’s next”. You may be having a hard time putting your life…

Masking the Pain

It’s no shock that some people heal faster than others. Individuals respond to things differently, but everyone doesn’t have the understanding to consider this important fact when they see other people experiencing the pain of death, trials, and other hardships. My situation was no different. I can’t even begin to tell you the horrible things…

How did I get here…

Waking up on a Saturday morning to little hands tugging at my comforter and sweet voices calling me “Mommy” is my normal now. I’m exhausted and mentally drained from working all week and I would like nothing more than to just sleep in without interruption, but I’m the only one here to tend to these…
