I put "day off" in quotations because let's be real, a mom's brain never just shuts off. On these days, you'll find me spending a good chunk of the time cleaning the kids room, doing laundry and just trying to do things that just take too long with the kiddos around. Each "day off" varies, … Continue reading Day In The Life: Mom “Day Off.”
I'll be honest, I used to get very angry when people would tell me since I was separated from my ex, I show now just focus on "myself." I had no idea what that meant really. I was too busy being angry; angry at my ex, angry at the world and angry with myself. But … Continue reading [Re]Focusing On Me.
There are some things people don't tell you when you go through a separation/ divorce. While these may be obvious things, they are things you simply don't think about until you are in the moments.

When my husband and I first separated officially last year, I went through our wedding box and got rid of 80% of any "memories." I ended up saving some items in case we got back together. There were some items I saved for our children, as no matter what we are both still their parents. … Continue reading Past Memories.

It's been over a year since my husband and I separated. While there were moments since then that we've "tried again" for the millionth time, it always ended up in the same result. Ever heard that "other" definition of insanity? "Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result."As much as the … Continue reading Acceptance.

Here is the week breakdown before … Continue reading What I Spend In a Week
I recently finished my first book of 2020, 'Stillness Is The Key.' Really good, but definitely not a light read [to me]. There were many pages that I had to reread but all in all, it was a fantastic book about becoming more "still." It takes ideologies from Stoicism and Buddhism and put it into … Continue reading Getting It Together.
A warm thank you to all those who messaged me in regards to my last post. It amazes me how many other women are/ were going through the same thing that I am. It's easier to stay quiet and just "settle" because it may seem that's what society tells us to do. Society tells us … Continue reading Worth.
On July 15th, 2019, my husband and I decided to separate. It wasn't a shock or a surprise. We had been on and off with the idea of separating and/ divorcing for quite some time. While I won't get into detail about our relationship, to put it simple was toxic. Toxic to the point where … Continue reading Unknown.
