It’s hard business, being a mom. Working like you don’t have kids, momming like you don’t have a job.
It’s hard to be away from my lovey for any reason. But if I must, I’m glad it’s for good reasons.
Loving what you do, working your passion, makes life not about work or home. It makes life about different sides of you, like different sides of a coin.
It means that I can Mom and also Therapist. That being a therapist enhances my momming, and momming enhances my therapy.
Find something you love, and you never have to work or choose.♥️ #worktolivenotlivetowork #lovewhatyoudo #workingmomlife #momboss

Cry me a river.💦 I'm one of those people that gets touched by life easily. By beauty. By sadness. By pain. By love. But I like to keep my tears universal. I like to feel deeply of the human heart 💗, but not too close to home. 🏠

I been through enough craziness where I could climb into bed and cry buckets for the next few years. 😭 It is both our pain and our love that connect us all. But I also am a positive, silver lining, finding your blessings, create your own reality type of gal by natute. .

Last week I felt deeply sad, not in a universal pain of humanity sad. But in a really truly sad, close to home kinda way. It feels good to own my tears and the heaviness on my heart. And then to watch the tears of sadness float away down the river of life. Leaving me somehow strong as a mountain. 🏞️ This is the power of our emotions 🌟- and riding the wave of life. 🌊

Which emotions threaten to rule you?

Mom time. Alone time. Me time. Refuel time. For me this normally happens in the morning hours before the light comes up. I spend time with my Lord, talking with Him, studying His word and then reading a bit of something. Anyone else read like 10 books at a time? I find that I get though them more quickly if I have a variety. Sometimes mamá time looks like going to see a ballet with a lovely friend and falling asleep half way through because momlife but still managing to get a pretty picture of the ceiling to remind me of the sweet alone time with mama friends. What does your refuel time look like? Do you recharge alone or with other friends? Are you a morning bird or a night owl? #hereisourhomeschool

What is your emotional world really like??

Tear down those walls!

If you have an option, give others a break rather than giving them grief. You don't know what they are going through.

Whether we’re adults or children, when our “emotional brain” is in charge, it’s almost impossible to think clearly or make good decisions. However, when we’ve calmed down, and our “thinking brain” has switched back on, it’s a different story. So next time your child needs some “guidance”, perhaps try to connect with them, and help them to become calm again, before trying to talk, or sort things out.

Our countenence and gestures give indications of our emotions.

You can learn to let go of hurtful emotions!

As a child I used to love pretend play ! I fondly remember many a wonderful afternoons spent letting our imagination run wild and playing with my parents and sister ! I am eagerly looking forward to when I can do the same with #babyZ ! 💛🌻

If this doesn’t make you think twice about what society deems as normal, the trauma of your childhood runs deeper than you care to admit. It’s never ok to hit anyone....especially a defenseless child. We all get what we give. And if the state of society and trauma of the lives of our young ones were a report card of our actions, then were failing miserably 😢#nonviolence #changethenorm #parenting #positiveparenting #reflection #knowbetterdobetter #selfcontrol
