Well in between busting out dinner and helping the kids after school, I have a few minutes today. I opted to hop on the computer and do my "one thing that can't get undone". And look at that, it's a blog post again!
Today I thought I'd share three topics that I have found are in a way therapeutic for me to think or write about. On days that I'm in a funk or stressed or down about life its really a great exercise to consider things that I'm looking forward to, things I'm struggling with and things that I'm genuinely grateful for. It helps me see to the positive things that I have going for me today and in the future and it helps me to work through some of the tough things. I'd suggest you do it too! Try to think of three for each category and I think you'll feel a load lifted and have a better outlook to face the day with. 
Here's how I'm answering these three today:
Things I'm looking forward too: 
- Girl's night tonight watching The Bachelor. I haven't ever had a consistent watch party with friends, but I've started watching this season of the Bachelor with friends and wow is it more fun! I can't believe the jabs and jokes and hilarious things that are said as we watch together. I'm laugh my head off and enjoy every minute of it. 
- Kesler starting preschool next week. He has been waiting a long time for it to start back up again and I'm so excited for him to have something to go to each week. We aren't big on paying for preschool at this house, but one of the local high schools offers a basically free preschool as part of their child development class. We love it. Kesler went last year and I'm sure he'll enjoy it again this year. 
- A sneak peek at progress on our store this weekend. We'll be photographing the demo/build on Saturday. It's hard to believe we'll be opening in just a few short months, but being there in person and seeing it in the works really makes it feel more real. 
Things I'm struggling with:
- Comparing myself to others. Since having Baker I've had a lot more time to spend on my phone browsing IG or Facebook or blogs. I spend a lot of time nursing ya know? But I have really noticed it taking a toll on my self esteem. I usually have pretty high self confidence, but lately I've been pretty down on myself for everything I do. I could go into it more, but I'm sure you get the gist of it. I'm trying to step back from it a bit and shift my perspective before it becomes any more damaging. I know social media is a trap, but boy, is it easy to fall into!
- Time. There is never enough time. I sure love my baby, but he is such a time sucker. I'm having a hard time keeping up with just about anything and that just feels crappy. I know this too shall pass and that things will keep getting better, but this week has been off to a rough start.
- Difficult work decisions. I don't have a degree is business or marketing or anything like that. My degree is in Nutrition and those health and chemistry classes aren't doing anything to help me with my current job description. I'm doing my best and thankfully Soren has a wealth of business school knowledge, but it's hard when I have to ask him questions about everything. Especially hard if you are as prideful as I am! :)
Things I'm genuinely thankful for:
- Our family vacation last week. It was so nice to get away and have such a fun trip together. It was busy and exhausting and expensive, but totally worth it in every way. I'm planning a post where I collect all of our tips and ideas for anyone making a similar trip in the future!
- Soren going to Sams Club for me today. It's a little thing, but man am I glad to have a minute to sit and blog rather than deal with kids and a giant cart full of groceries. 
- My kids, especially the baby. Baker may be my biggest challenge as far as winning at life right now, but he sure makes me feel like a winner. His little smile or Knox telling me he loves me SO much totally turns me to mush. I'm so thankful for sweet boys that I am able to let run my life for right now. They are certainly are top priority and the best things I have going for me. :) 
So take a stab at it? I'd love to hear if these three help you too!

  1. I feel like I've been in the time suck that is social media too with being home and nursing too. I just remember that so many people stage their Instagram life and so many bloggers only wear things for the blog, since it's their job. That is so not me, who is currently in a shirt and flannel pants. Being authentic beats the opposite any day, and authentic is definitely you. Hang in there!

  2. One of my friends does makeup & has almost 5k followers on Instagram. She often only does one eye or 1/2 her face. Makes me laugh every time she posts the real life pic on fb. For a year now I've been texting a friend daily these 3 things. We call them rose, thorn & bud. I got the idea from telisha's blog & it has been an awesome way to stay in contact & realize there are buds & roses among the thorns.

  4. Now, see, it's funny...I completely and totally envy you and your life. You seem to have everything. I wish I could be tall and thin with a rocking haircut and makeup everyday. You have a huge fancy house, you own and run your own business that affords you a family trip to Disney and the ability to always be home with your family together, husband included. Grass is always greener and perspective is everything and all that.

  5. They certainly do help me! You're not the only one who struggles with January. Such a rough month and the snow storms don't help either. When you said you didn't know much about marketing and business, I would highly recommend taking an online course through Coursera to learn! It's stress free and not graded (unless you choose to get a certificate at the end). Every now and again, I'll take a class sometimes finish it and sometimes not because being a momma is hard work! But it's so beneficial to be able to grow your skills for free and not lose anything if life gets in the way. xo

  6. Are you going through a mid-life crisis for example a Divorce, Breakup, miscarriage, you need your Ex back ,can't find love no need to worry Templeofloveandprosperity@gmail.com can help you with any personal need.many people will try to sugar coat the truth and give you false hope but not Dr Frank Ojo he will tell you the truth and nothing but the truth and keep your hopes high and alive so, please dont waste your time and hope on somebody who doesn't deserve it. My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Frank Ojo can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Three days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Frank Ojo. If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. contact him on his Email: Templeofloveandprosperity@gmail.com .

  9. My life became devastated when my husband sent me packing, after 8 years that we have been together. I was lost and helpless after trying so many ways to make my husband take me back. One day at work, i was absent minded not knowing that my boss was calling me, so he sat and asked me what its was all about i told him and he smiled and said that it was not a problem. I never understand what he meant by it wasn't a problem getting my husband back, he said he used a spell to get his wife back when she left him for another man and now they are together till date and at first i was shocked hearing such thing from my boss. He gave me an email address of the great spell caster who helped him get his wife back, i never believed this would work but i had no choice that to get in contact with the spell caster which i did, and he requested for my information and that of my husband to enable him cast the spell and i sent him the details, but after two days, my mom called me that my husband came pleading that he wants me back, i never believed it because it was just like a dream and i had to rush down to my mothers place and to my greatest surprise, my husband was kneeling before me pleading for forgiveness that he wants me and the kid back home, then i gave Happy a call regarding sudden change of my husband and he made it clear to me that my husband will love me till the end of the world, that he will never leave my sight. Now me and my husband is back together again and has started doing pleasant things he hasn't done before, he makes me happy and do what he is suppose to do as a man without nagging. Please if you need help of any kind, kindly contact Happy for help and you can reach him via email: happylovespell2@gmail.com

  10. My name is williams. Out of respect for you and your spells I must make this testimony known to all. I've been to other spell casters without seeing any progress, just wished I came to you earlier,i got the best from you. My ex husband was gone for a year and I went everywhere and other spell casters for help but no good result until my friend introduce me to Dr.lucafo.he told me to just do everything he ask and all will be fine,which i did and After the amazing Spell was done, I finally got a call from my husband and behold in the next 30 minutes my husband was at my door begging for forgiveness and now my husband is back with full of love. It was like a miracle! He suddenly came back with flowers saying that i should for give him,i was truly flabbergasted and shocked when my husband kneel down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept him 'm really short of words and joyful,you are a God sent to me and my family and now i am a joyful woman once again.thank you so much Dr.lucafo. To everyone who is looking for a real spell caster you can contact dr.lucafo from his mail (drlucafogreatspellhome@outlook.com)...thnk you very much lucafo.

  12. I was crushed when my lover of three years left to be with another woman. I cried and sobbed every day, until it got so bad that I reached out to the Internet for help. I wasted so much time and effort trying to get it back until I hit on the real thing. And it is her final magic. You were different from the rest - you are the diamond in the rough. Thank you from the bottom of my soul! I am extremely happy. I hope God blesses you, as you have to help me get my love back, to visit him in (thebrotherhoodtemple@gmail.com) can be of great help to all of you.

    Hello My name is Kathie Sherine, Am from USA, Texas. and I am very happy for posting on this blog on how a great spell caster helped me in bringing back the love of my life. I know there are lots of women like me out there who have done so much to have back their Husband, I am here to tell you all to search no further because the answer is right here. I sincerely believe if there are up to five spell casters like Dr Mavelous this world would be a better place, I have seen people complaining on how fake spell castes promised to help them but couldn't but with Dr Mavelous I tell you your problem is solved already. My Husband and I had been apart for 4 YEARS and I couldn't bear without living with him, I have tried everything to have him back but nothing was working until I saw numerous testimonies about a spell caster called Dr Mavelous and how great his work is. I contacted him via email (peaceworldtemple@gmail.com) immediately and follow the step that he ask and in less than 48 hours my lover called me and was eager for my forgiveness and that he wished nothing more than to have me in his arms forever. I filled so much joy and happiness that I found Dr Mavelous, I hope you all here will find this testimony of mine and get your husband back in just 48 hours thanks... contact his email: peaceworldtemple@gmail.com

  14. I want to use this golden medium to appreciate Dr.jude a great spell caster for helping me retrieving back my relationship with my ex husband when he ended and turned back on me for quite along time now 3 years ago. He performed a love spell for me and within 24 hours after the spell had been cast I receive a text from my ex husband saying that he is sorry for the pains and tears that he had caused me and that he will not do such thing to me again in his life. I was surprised but later accepted him back again. Anyone that is in the same line of problem or different one that want to contact a spell caster should happily contact Dr.jude now on this email address:liberationlovespell@gmail.com if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to the Dr.jude for bringing back my husband ,and brought great joy to my family once again.email Liberationlovespell@gmail.com his whatsapp number+2348034062173
