Slow Progress is Better Than No Progress!

Just because you aren’t making progress as fast as you think does not mean you aren’t making progress at all. Keep going. Slow progress is better than no progress and honestly, I just wanted to remind you of that because sometimes we get so ahead of ourselves .. we lose all patience and get frustrated !! We get mad when we don’t see positive results as soon as we’d like. We get aggravated when things don’t necessarily go our way and when doors don’t open when we think they should. I am so guilty of all of this because I’m the type of person that gets excited about my future! I just know that all the work I’m putting in will literally pay off one day but sometimes I get annoyed because I wish that “one day” would be so much sooner than later haha.
I’m learning to appreciate the seasons though! There is literally a time for everything and as I’ve said before .. whatever it is you’re waiting on God for, you might as well learn to wait well because you’re not going to rush God. That’s just not going to happen so you can just forget it. He moves on His own time, not ours and when I get to where I’ve kind of forgotten that, He definitely finds a way to remind me of it !! So with that being said, keep doing things now that you can look back and thank yourself for later! One day at time and small steps at time will eventually get you to where it is you’re trying to go 🙂
You are not a failure and you’re actually doing a really good job!! I’m proud of you!

To The Mom Who Feels Discouraged

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! 😂🙈

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 !!!! ❤👏👏
“Mommin’ ain’t easy!” 😂 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!

STOP REACTING TO EVERYTHING!!!

It’s not necessary to R E A C T to everything!! It’s really not. Now, that’s much easier said than done but over the past few weeks.. I’ve gotten to see how powerful “silence” can be. I’m just going to be honest with you, I’ve been in the process of distancing myself from a few people here lately. It’s not that they’re bad people, they’re just toxic and I don’t need that type of negativity in my life right now. I got places I’m trying to go, things I’m trying to do, goals I’m determined to reach and I’m just out here making real boss moves! I don’t know about you but I don’t function properly when I’m under a lot of emotional stress. These few toxic individuals stress me out emotionally, okay? I’m not just talking about the emotion of sadness; I’m talking about anger too! They get on my nerves. They get on my nerves more than anybody else because they know exactly what buttons to push to get directly under my skin.

I’ve felt more peace in the past few weeks than I have in the past few months. I’ve finally realized that some things are just too small for me to be give my attention to and pour any type of energy in. I’m learning that it’s better to just send good vibes, prayer, love from a distance and move on! Today, I feel GOOD because I haven’t been responding to what usually triggers me. It has no power because I don’t give it any attention. I’m telling you, silence is a powerful thing and sometimes.. silence is just the best response. I’m learning to stop giving people so much power over me and my emotions. So if you’re like me, still learning this kind of life lesson.. just remember, the problem is irrelevant. It’s your response that matters 🙂

ONE DAY AT A TIME..

Everything is working out the way it should. It really is. No need to panic. It won’t change anything. While everyone else is moving fast just to be moving in circles, slow down. Be spirit guided and not society-guided. Slowing down means allowing yourself to create in your current space rather then chase a space that won’t allow you to be there until you are ready. Your happy and at peace today will embrace your happy and at peace tomorrow. -Tatiana Jerome 🙂
