Mental Health Self-Advocacy

This past weekend I had to call my pharmacy for my new ADHD medications. Long story short, I ran out of meds and went a day without them when I shouldn’t have. It wasn’t complete chaos, but I definitely noticed the difference. One area the meds help in is time management. I struggled pre-medication days,Continue reading “Mental Health Self-Advocacy”

Happy Juneteenth Weekend!

Growing up, I would hear some say that to celebrate Juneteenth was to be racist. Both my husband and I grew up in the same school system and weren’t taught the meaning of Juneteenth. A few years ago, I joined with some amazing women who discussed racism; a racial reconciliation group with women from ourContinue reading “Happy Juneteenth Weekend!”

Self-Righteousness is at an all time high…

I have a lot on my mind lately…I’ve cringed as I’ve had conversations or read posts online shared by people, including myself. I sit in my bubble, consuming God’s word and am in my daily routine while people around me are hurting. I believe I must look outside my little bubble to see how IContinue reading “Self-Righteousness is at an all time high…”

Free To Be…

Hi friends! The past two weeks have been eventful to say the least! I celebrated my birthday, got some faux locs in my hair (𝙖𝙨 𝙨𝙚𝙚𝙣 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙥𝙞𝙘), and much more. This week I’m back at it! I’ve been watching webinars, taking anti-racism classes, creative planning, and creating a more realistic timeline to fitContinue reading “Free To Be…”

Singing My Heart Out

This past week has been a good one! We celebrated our niece’s birthday. Then we celebrated with one of our children’s friends and her family. They are moving from middle school to high school. Our time out was something I missed this past year. I had such a deep time of reflection once we wereContinue reading “Singing My Heart Out”

Preparing For An Official Launch

As some of you know, I’m preparing for an official launch for my small business. I have continued to work on creating items and I have been enjoying the creative process. The date I originally anticipated for my launch will be here in less than two weeks. However, I am new to this and canContinue reading “Preparing For An Official Launch”

Comfort Zone

As things begin to open back up here in Las Vegas, I noticed how many things I have taken for granted. I am someone who loves to be inside, at home, away from the crowds. It has been easy to be at home during the pandemic, until we slowly started doing more outside of ourContinue reading “Comfort Zone”

Pretending

It’s been a tough couple of weeks parenting. Right now, I am typing this out wishing I was somewhere sleeping with no interruptions, on a soft, comfy, larger than the largest bed, for about a whole week, alone (ahem, Mother’s Day anyone?). I have not been able to accomplish a ton around the house, yetContinue reading “Pretending”

It Will Be Okay

As I was rocking my 8 month old son Kai back to sleep early Thursday morning, I saw both my rented hospital grade and my Spectra breast pump over in the corner of my room. As I quickly glanced at them, tears started flowing. Long story short, I was not able to breast feed anyContinue reading “It Will Be Okay”

I Know It’s Tough, But Hold On

Over the last few days I have been feeling a heaviness on my heart. I keep hearing stories of so many people struggling through times right now and committing suicide. There are so many who are struggling financially, emotionally, physically, mentally, relationally, and so many more ways. I struggle with reaching out whenever I feelContinue reading “I Know It’s Tough, But Hold On”
