You want to know something funny? For years, no one knew that I battled with depression because I smiled a lot. Because I handled my responsibilities and didn't walk around like an infomercial for anti-depressants, no one realized the battle that waged inside. 🌪️️ I was just telling my daughter the other day how grateful I am that she was too young to remember me at my worst. To remember how I'd come home from work, make dinner for her and her dad, and then go in my room and lock myself up for the rest of the night. How I'd sleep my weekends away and had to force myself out of bed every day. That's what depression looked like for me, sleeping my life away and not wanting to wake up the next day. 💤

This might be surprising if you've just met me here. I just realized that this isn't something I've shared much about on this platform. I know it's probably not what you came to read about. It doesn't fit into the pretty box of social media perfection. But I think it's important to share where I've come from because those who are still there need to know they aren't alone. For a while I wasn't sure I'd make it to see my 30th birthday. Here I am, two years after 30 and loving life, something I didn't think I was capable of doing just 5 years ago. It didn't happen overnight, but over time. It wasn't easy, but it was possible. It's so important to be kind to others because we never know what's going on beyond what we can see. It's also important to reach out to others because asking for help when I was ready to receive it is what helped me move forward. 💫

You know how some mornings are harder than others? Someone wakes up late, someone is cranky, you feel like all you are doing is harping at everyone to hurry, someone forgot to brush their teeth (or their shoes!) and you just feel ...tired. Well today was *not* one of those mornings; in fact it was filled with laughter, pleasant conversations with each other, on-time-ness and more laughter. While driving back from drop off and sitting at a stop light, a feeling of pure gratitude completely washed over me. For this morning, my children, my husband, our life, the sunshine & weather — and funny, loving friends who also add SO much joy to my world and my text feed. My bucket is literally overflowing, and I have everything I could ever need. 🙏❤️✨ * *
What are you feeling most grateful for today?

Nessy transmission update: at 116,000 miles on the original Tranny and motor we came down with “Transaxle sudden death syndrome” the 3-4 syncro hub cracked and broke off inside our transmission, luckily as soon as this happened we pulled over and had her towed so we would not cause anymore stress on our tranny or motor, luckily we found a fantastic shop to help us out and should receive our transmission back better than new tomorrow! .
Last summer after a camping trip in Eastern Oregon we ventured to @timberlinelodge with @helga.van.helgenwagen to take in the beautiful views of our glorious state 😍

People are losing their minds over this re-enlistment where, if you haven’t heard, an airman used a T-Rex puppet to mouth her oath while she said it. Totally aside from the fact that there are REAL ISSUES that we should all be worried about, a couple thoughts... First off, step back and look at the big picture. The military is a VOLUNTEER force that is listed as the highest stress job year after year, and when they’re not slashing jobs for “force reduction,” retention numbers are pitiful.
Second, google “funny re-enlistment” and you’ll see this is hardly the first time this ceremony had some levity to it. So what? Because there was a puppet, NOW it’s gone too far?
Finally, those of us that have been stalked by retention during our final days in the service know what it can be like. I’d like to think that this airman was harassed by the retention NCO about re-enlisting, and made a request so ridiculous that she never thought they’d actually let her do it, and she could cite that as her reason for not re-upping. When she got a green light, it became a giant game of chicken between her and command.
Ultimately, this whole thing is being blown way out of proportion. If you’re a vet or active duty, and you took your re-enlistment oath with solemn reverence, then great. But I know many more who added some humor to the occasion and made an otherwise long day/month/year an enjoyable one for everyone in attendance.

What will you choose today? @alexzandrapeters takes us through setting intentions and choosing positivity:

1. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
2. Be aware of your energy and the energy of those around you. 3. Be mindful of what you do and say.
Remember what we were taught in school:
Positive + Positive = more positivity
Negative + negative = more negative
Positive + negative = neutral. No more, no less.

One of the teachers at my school blessed me with a bunch of her late grandmother’s swagged out, vintage sweaters because she knew I would appreciate the fashion it was giving. And I was too geeked to show her how I coordinated my ensemble because I knew it would make her smile. Plus, I was meeting my girl @jenpeeps at a networking event and was looking forward to looking all cute and stuff.
That was until I realized I had on snow boots instead of the pumps I left at work😑😑😑
I was so thankful that Jen not only had an extra pair of booties for me to wear, but I was annoyed because I wanted MY shoes. When I began whining, wanting to go home instead of attending the event because I was embarrassed about the shoes not fitting perfectly, she rained on my very petty pity pout party by telling me to suck it up and do what I came to do.
As I reflect on what ended up being a good night filled with promising connections, I realize how easily I sweat the small stuff because I’m usually obsessed with perfection. I’m sure this mindset has resulted in missed opportunities, too.
Since I know better, I’m doing better by working on focusing less on perfection and more on progression. It ain’t easy, but I’m glad I got friends like Jen who give me tough love and remind me to keep the main thing the main thing when the going gets tough.

Love This. Reminds me of #charlotteelizabeth #queenc and my #parentinggoals let them be them and give them some control over their world. #Repost @lrknost ・・・

I was so tempted to have her change when she came down for school dressed like this. But then I remembered she doesn’t get to choose her bedtime, where she lives, or when she comes in from playing outside. She didn’t even choose her name. We want our kids to grow up to be good decision makers but hesitate to let them try out their wings. We let them choose stuff we don’t really care about that won’t reflect on us as parents. How we love our control. Cozy LOVES to create outfits and dress herself. Even though I dreamed of having little girls of my own to dress someday, I’ve had to accept that she doesn’t belong to me. That who she is isn’t my decision. What she wears, for her, is a form of expressing what she doesn’t yet have words for. So I let her choose her clothes. I want her to know that she is capable of decisions and what it feels like to make them from your heart. And more than anything, I want her to know that when she shows a little part of herself, I will walk by her side and proudly proclaim “I’m with her”. Ripped Halloween tights, princess shoes ‘n all. 💗✌🏼#youdoyou #dontsweatthesmallstuff #neversaynever #🌈🦄 #consciousparenting
