Call it Selfish, I Call it Self-Care

Never apologize for having standards and refusing to just let anyone have a seat at your table in life. People may take offense to it but they often forget that it has more to do with yourself than it does them. YOU are responsible for protecting your peace and have every right to decide who to let in and who to keep out. Call it selfish, I call it self-care. You have one life here on earth, be wise and take care of it. God will show you who NEEDS to be there.
One of the greatest standards I’ve developed so far this year is refusing to take a seat at one’s table of dysfunction, negativity, misery, lies, etc. You have a choice as to what you deal with and please believe that when your standards and refusal to put up with some things make someone uncomfortable or feel rejected, they will pinpoint YOU as the problem but keep your standards and protect your peace anyways. Some things you really DO NOT have to deal with. I promise. πŸ’œβœŒ

To The Mom Who Feels Discouraged

3b97642d2e6e7bfeca1530850e007296.jpg
When you find yourself locked in the bathroom, sobbing on the floor because you’ve just had enough, that does not mean you have failed as a Mom! Being a Mom is hard. That is NOT failure. That is a fact. Parenting doesn’t come with a handbook. You just have to do the best you can. Ya know? You’ll have good days, bad days, normal days, overwhelming days, perfect days, trying days, supermom days, just being a mom days, with a whole lot of love and real, crazy motherhood days!! It just gets real chaotic sometimes. I’m a mom of two boys. So I understand the frustration you may be feeling.. if you feel any at all. I just wanted to take the time to encourage you today and let you know that it’s gonna be okay! If today is bad, look for tomorrow to be better. You just never know with kids. One day, their angelic little sweethearts & the next they’re demonic little heifers that will have you ready to pull every strand of hair off of your head! πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ

Either way, just know that YOU ARE APPRECIATED!! ❀
That’s something that most of us moms aren’t used to hearing very often! We are primarily responsible for SO much – working a full-time job, keeping the house clean, keeping the laundry done, making sure the kids are bathed, cooking, helping the kids get their homework done and also making sure they understand it .. as a mom, you are a your child’s first teacher.. their first kiss, their first love, heck and sometimes even a doctor! Yeah, I said it .. a DOCTOR !! We’re all the time cleaning up those sores and kissing those boo boo’s, nurturing and comforting them after a terrible accident .. MOMS ROCK!! And special shout out to the single moms! You know it’s good to have help from the children’s dad. I appreciate my Husband so much. He knows when to step in and pick up my slack or take over some of my mommy duties so I can have somewhat of a break, but to not have the help at all and do it alone is a totally different story! Single Moms , I salute you !!!! β€πŸ‘πŸ‘
“Mommin’ ain’t easy!” πŸ˜‚ I say that now with laughter, even as my own kids are currently upstairs arguing, but it’s true! You can only understand that if you’re a mom! So much comes with it that it’s not even funny but at the end of the day it’s always the most rewarding thing. Most importantly, remember.. that you are human too. You don’t have to have it together every minute of every day. Sometimes, it’s okay if the only thing you do is breathe. It’s okay to take a break and rest. Always make some time for you!

God gave those little children to you, mama… TO YOU! No one else can mother them like you can. You may have your work cut out for you, but you’re the one cut out to accomplish it !! Don’t ever forget that. xoxo!

There’s Power in Kindness!

fbb52dfa27c071026ecc111ef2dc49ad.jpg

Use your words to build people up because words are powerful. SO powerful. They leave a lasting impact. So when it comes to your mouth, think of it as a power tool and be very careful with it. Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. Aim to be more of an encouragement to others instead of tearing them down. Try to make it to where your words leave other people inspired, not frustrated. A little more kindness and a little less judgement will take youΒ a long way in life with people. Always remember that. Treat people the way you want to be treated, not how you have been treated. {.Kindness.}Β is free! You should totally sprinkle that stuff some of everywhere!!

Empowered people, empower other people!

Thanks for visiting my blog today! I pray that today is a great day for you!

It’s Not What You Say, But It’s How You Say It ..

20180519_081353.jpg

 

You have to be careful how you say things to people and what you do to them. You can mean well, but the way you approach the individual will determine their response. In fact, you could be telling the complete truth, but people will not receive you well if you don’t know how to talk to them. It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it.Β Tone of voice matters. Always try to remember that.

I hope you guys have a lovely weekend !!Β
