Okay Internet, I’m about to talk to myself here and fire off some thoughts in my brain because I’m a single mama- I don’t have a person to roll over to at the end of the night to debate things with. I’ve got me and my brain and trust me- it’s a banter that I … Continue reading To School? Or Not To School? To Work? Or Not To Work?
So, I had someone ask me how to best support a single parent and I thought I’d jump on here and write it out as I’m sure every single one of us know a single parent. And we all know that these single parents have tough struggles and it’s hard to figure out how to … Continue reading How to Support a Single Parent
Y’all. I live for holidays. Doesn’t matter what we’re celebrating- I’m totally there for it. Halloween will forever be my favourite and even though it’s July, I’d be a big liar if I said we didn’t have a cryptic hand in our front garden. I’m THAT committed. So, I didn’t decorate for yesterday’s Nation holiday … Continue reading Our Holiday Wednesday in the Not-So-North
I started reading a new book because that’s just what I do. I like to read- and I like to read books that really make you think deeply and if the author can tie their thoughts to scientific facts, even better! I’m so there for it. “Introspection” was always a popular word in my psych … Continue reading Partner-less Parenting. (is that even a word?)
I picked up a new book today. Well, that’s a lie… Amazon delivered 1 of the 500 books that I’ve ordered since Covid-cation. And this one is more of a manual than a novel or self-love kinda book. This one is helping me master personal and professional greatness and the first line I read was, … Continue reading What Am I Doing to Reinvent Myself?
It turns out, that I’m not actually quite so terrible of a person. I am single handedly surviving a pandemic with my 5 kids… sort of impressive, eh? I mean, we have a lot of days where we’re all smiling and eating well-balanced and nutritious meals, only to be followed by my 5-year olds eating … Continue reading Dear Covid: You’ve Taught Me A Few Things.
Self-admittedly, it has taken me longer than I want to admit to bounce back from my divorce. And it’s not the fact that it took me a long time to get over my ex-husband, but it’s the fact that there was more damage done than I had expected. My brain started to believe that a … Continue reading Life After a Toxic Relationship
Do you ever feel like people just want you to fail? Or purposely celebrate your failures and ignore your triumphs and accomplishments? Or ultimately dissuade you from any dream, whether it’s small or big? We’re all human and none of us are perfect, but at what point do we cut ourselves from those who literally … Continue reading Dreaming Big. And Unapologetic.
I swear… if we are out of isolation for Father’s Day, I’m going to lose my mind. Jokes. Sorta. But in all realness, every single Mother needs to give herself one wicked hug right now (you know, since we’re not allowed to hug anyone else) and give herself the biggest Kudos known to humankind. What … Continue reading Mama’s Day 2020
Exhale. I made it. Another day down. Phew. But is anyone else losing their voice right now? And no, it’s not Covid…. I guess I’ve been using my *ahem* ‘teaching voice’ a lot more often than normal. Anyone?! Don’t worry, though.. I’m finally sitting down, sipping on a pretty tasty apple cinnamon tea and have … Continue reading Another Chapter Begins.
