Everytime, I say I’m going to focus on my blog something comes up… I have a lot of things going on in my life. I am a mom of six (three boys ages 12, 13 and 23) and step mom to three (two young men ages 19, 28 and a beautiful young lady age 20) with the world to change and it overwhelms me from time to time. Yet, I wouldn’t change a thing.
Motherhood is challenging and the day to day struggles are building me up to be amazing. I’ve been fortunate to be a SAHM (stay at home mom) for my teo youngest. It wasn’t exactly by choice, but it happened when my children needed me the most. My two boys were struggling in school and it became my mission to assure them both a successful future.
Before, I was always so tired between working overnights & weekends and being a mom, life was kicking my butt. I had a discussion with my other half and expressed to him how I felt about failing at the most important thing in my life…being a MOM! He has always regardless of anything else been my rock.
It was hard to talk with friends about how bad I was feeling so I didn’t and heaven only knows how sad it made me. I am honestly so grateful for the support of my better half. I have to say that with all the things going wrong at the same time, my children gave me purpose. My support system became my little family unit.
Struggles were bound to come up, but things would always work out as long as my vision remained clearly focused on my family. I’ll blog when I can, when I remember to. I’ll polish my nails when I need to destress and it will be okay. No one can judge me as harshly as I’ve done in the past so Dr. Seuss was right all along…
It has always amazed me how you’re your biggest critic and only when you change how you see yourself will anything change. I’ll leave this here for now.
Happy polishing… Until next time be true to yourself!!!
