Happy 3rd Birthday Evelyn

Dear Evelyn, I always wanted to be that mom that documented major milestones of your life. I even have a baby book- that is barely filled out. But time and excuses got in the way of me completing any of those things- so instead I’ll try this letter to you instead. At 5:39am PST you will turn 3. I still remember your birth. I remember feeling very empowered pushing you out of my body. I remember how warm you felt when you held you for the first time, and about how your squishy body seemed to mold itself to me …

You Can’t Pour from an Empty Cup

  Why Self Care is Crucial By Justine Robinson There is a reason the famous airplane analogy exists: “put your oxygen mask on before assisting others with theirs”. It can be difficult to heed this advice in ordinary adult life — while trying to build a career, go to school, and keep up with family and other social demands.

Guest Blogger: I’m Not a Natural Mom

We have a special treat for you today. Meet Rachel Harrell who runs The Naptime Projects , a blog dedicated to end the mom-shaming and helping moms take back their life one nap-time at a time. She enjoys building things from pallets, date nights with her husband, Chris, and playing with her baby boy, Will. I don’t love motherhood. I don’t adore being a stay at home mom. I love my baby boy dearly, but I’m not a natural mom. Patience has never been a strength of mine, and I’m not an overly compassionate person. Both are extremely necessary for being …

If you’re a positive person, you’ll see a greater reason for every moment in life. But this isn’t about that. I’m going to share with you how I am working on overcoming my self-limiting beliefs in the hope that it inspires truth and acceptance in yourself to where you can start taking small steps to change the way you think. I used to think of myself …

Stop the “Complain Train”

Just fair warning, this may rub some of you the wrong way. There I said it, so you’ve been warned. So continue on if you don’t mind some feathers ruffled. I’ve had my fair share of “woe” is me moments throughout my life. Honestly, I spent most of my childhood, and a fair share of my adult life blaming someone else for all my problems.  Why I got less than average grads in college Why I worked so many hours for little pay Why I couldn’t seem to keep friends when life got rough Why my husband and I argued …

Anxiety Busting Tips

As if postpartum depression wasn’t bad enough, when I went back to work, I was faced with daily anxiety attacks. These were completely new to me and I had no idea what was happening at first. My chest would tighten, I couldn’t focus, my mind was popping around like a pinball machine, I would cry over random things, my head would hurt, and I felt like the walls were closing in. After a week of single parenting, working full time with an hour commute on each end, and these anxiety attacks, I HAD to get a handle on this. There …
