Well hello again,
First off I would like to say Thank You to the handful of people who come to my blog daily. I am very greatful for you and all the new people who are joining me as well. Over the next few months you will notice my blog go through many changes as I am setting it up. I will be changing a few things lay out wise. I am also working on social media accounts. Those will come a few months from now. I want to have my blog all set up how I want it to be before I start focusing on social media accounts but they are in the works!
Thank you for the support you guys have given me and the kind words you have said to me. I am very greatful for all of you! I will be as open and honest with you all within limits because let’s be real somethings should not be posted for the world to see.
So with all of that being said thank you again and I hope you stick with me while I set up my blog a little better.
I always tell people “No I’m not stressed” in reality I really am. For the past week my eye lid has twitched. Every 5 seconds my eye lid would twitch. I can not even explain how annoying it was to have my eye lid twitch at least a thousand times a day. I had no clue that stress could do that to your body. Stress is can do some crazy things to your body. Hives, twitches, emotional break downs, upset stomach there’s many more ways stress can affect your body.
I know I am stressed. I am going through a lot of changes at work and in my life personally. I used to care a lot more at my job. I still give 110% at work, however; I changed my attitude to not care as much as I use two. My work puts so much stress on me with the work load and changes that is happening right now and I have decided it is not worth the amount of stress it is. My attitude towards work is “It is what it is and I just work their”.
As soon as I changed my attitude about work I came home and relaxed. A nice long hot shower and a great nights rest was exactly what I needed. The next day my eye-ball twitch was gone! Stress will always be in my life, if it’s about money, kids, life in general it is always their.
The best advice I was given this past week was to take some time to myself to relax and let out my stress. If you are feeling stressed go for a message, get your nails done, take a hot shower or bath. Do what helps you release stress in your life and remember your not alone. Other people are in the same boat as you, and never feel afraid to ask for help!
Today was a rough day filled with whining and crying. Today was filled with patients, love and some times anger. My child was testing the waters today to see what she can get away with. Children know what they are allowed can and can not do. There are times where they like to test you. They will do things they know they aren’t allowed to do and somehow manage to make you feel like a bad parent with there alligator tears.
Today I felt like a bad parent saying no for most of the morning, having conversations about good choices and time outs. I always feel guilty when my kiddo is crying in a time out, however; I don’t want her to think she can get away with anything.
I was scrolling on pinterest (I have a mild obsession when it comes to pinterest) I found the perfect quote.
When little people are overwhelmed by big emotions, its our job to share our calm, not join their chaos -L.R. Knost
This quote was exactly what I needed to read in the middle of our big emotion morning. We were both upset, and angry at each other this morning. We sat on the couch 10 times this morning and had conversations about listening. At the time it felt pointless having the same conversation over and over but somehow my words came through and she finally listened to me.
Once the morning was over our day got better. We had our listening ears, kind hands and semi inside voices back. Some days start out rocky, where we should go back to bed and try to start over. If we were to determined how our day will go based off one bad hour everyone’s day would be rough. Take the rough time and turn it into something wonderful.
