Don’t send that message!

Posted by Britenay on March 23, 2018
STOP! Wait a minute! Before you send that text/instant message that you’re about to send. Read this first! If you’re anything like me, you’ve gotten used to flicking a quick message to someone when something comes to your mind. This doesn’t seem like an issue or like it should be a problem however, have you ever stopped to consider the impact to the recipient on the other end? Furthermore, we send those messages while in

It won’t always be like this

Ladies, do you remember before you were a Mumma? Before you had a little human needing your attention 24 hours each and every day? Remember what it was like to just be you and your man? Sometimes I find that I forget, I get so into the grind of life with our little human that I forget that I am not just a Mumma, I am so much more! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely
The truth!? You can’t handle the truth! The problem with the truth itself, but that we find it hard to tell others the truth for fear of how they may react. Being so afraid of the other person’s reaction, we end up avoiding the conversation or sometimes even lying. It’s easier than facing an uncomfortable situation or upsetting someone we care about. In not telling the truth though, the long-term impact can be far worse.

You got this Mumma!

You got this Mumma, you got this Mumma… I repeat this over and over in my head as we’re sitting in the waiting room at Starship Children’s Hospital waiting to see the cardiologist to attach a Holter Monitor to our precious 2 year old…..    You got this Mumma! You can keep it together, you can stay strong, you can fake confidence, you can smile, you can hide the worry in your eyes, you can

I AM Good Enough!

Posted by Britenay on March 9, 2018
I am absolutely tired of feeling like I’m not good enough. Rather than delving into my history to explore the root of why I feel that way, I would rather share my recent learning with you all and my plans for how I am choosing to confront this and move forward from now on. You see, I’ve been this way ever since I can remember. No compliment given ever felt deserved. No accomplishment ever felt

Temper Tantrums 101

Posted by Taterbug on March 7, 2018
Your toddler isn’t GIVING you a hard time, your toddler is HAVING a hard time…   As a parent, you will be familiar with the monikers “terrible two’s” or “threenager” or “toddler temper tantrum”… they are all very familiar words! This week I was hit with a timely reminder as I struggled with a “terrible two toddler temper tantrum” one night on my own while Hubby was at work that (majority of the time) your

You want to be a what?!

Last week, I wrote about finding my purpose. Just to let you know, my purpose in life is to “inspire others to be more empowered to live full and happy lives”. This purpose is the reasoning behind my decisions I make in life. You’ll also see it written under ‘about me’ on the sidebar on the right. It’s my goal to achieve this in some way every day. However, every day is different and my

Pick it up…

  You know when you hear a song sometimes, and the lyrics just make you think? Or you swear the lyrics could be about you and your life?       As I was driving home one day from work this week a song came on that really made me start thinking about how I want to adapt this kind of thinking to my life as a Mumma. Cheesy I know! Maybe it was that
It’s an incredibly amazing feeling, knowing exactly what you want and how to get it. Having goals and a purpose to your life, giving you reason to get up each and every day is amazing! When you don’t have goals or purpose, life can be overwhelming. Sometimes, it can seem pointless. It’s like you don’t even know what the point is in going on. This was me a few years ago. I struggled to get

There is no greater battle in life than the battle between the part of you that wants to be healed and the parts of you that are comfortable and content remaining broken – Iyanla VanZant @Super Soul Sunday I saw this quote pop up the other day following a recent Super Soul Sunday interview with Iyanla Van Zant. It shot out and hit me hard as I read the words and was reminded yet again
