Stress

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!

Tonight,

Today has been a crazy long day! With my kiddo being sick the past week I have regained my appreciation for sleep. Running on fumes today at work it feels great to lay in my bed with peace and quit. I normally hate the house being quit but after today like today it is peaceful.

I got out of work a little later than I normally do so by the time we got home my daughter was passed out in the car, SCORE! Now if you are a parent you know how HARD it is to transfer a child without waking them up. They look like sweat, precious angels but in reality its like carrying a bomb. No Joke! Just one wrong move, light in the eyes, laying them down incorrectly and BAM they are awake. My child wont just be awake for 10-15 minutes, no shes awake for hours after a bad transfer, however; the odds were in my favor tonight and she stayed asleep.

I was able to pick up the house a tad from this morning. I had 15 min to get ready, everything gathered and out the door this morning. Of course with me sleeping in more than I should I run around the house like a chicken with its head cut off trying to hurry and gather everything I needed along with what my child needed for the day.

I’m just going to be real with y’all. I’m not a morning person, I set 4 alarms and end up getting up on the 4th alarm. I really like my sleep and waking up super early to get all done up is not my thing. Don’t get me wrong I love doing my make up and hair, however; I do not get enough sleep to wake up an extra hour early to do all that stuff. A good tip and what I do instead is shower the night before, dry your hair and do it. I love to curl my hair but, that takes a good hour to do. At night I will curl my hair put it in the highest pony or bun (Go with the curl do not fight the curl) sleep on it, wake up shake it out put on my 2 min face make up and im ready to go. (After I brush my teeth and use my mouth wash of course)

Doing my hair the night before is a life saver. But when I don’t do that a good o pony or bun works just fine! Just remember no matter what have confidence and do what makes you happy. If that is waking up 2 hours early or sleeping in. You do You that is the only thing that matters.

Today’s The Day

Today is the day where my motivation begins. Today is the day I start everything back up that I have been neglecting over the past year. Today is the day I get my shit together and stop putting everything off.

I have said this to myself over and over again the past few months. I keep telling myself today the day I start working out again, or today’s the day I organize my closet and keep it clean. Its time to stop being lazy for the most part and just do it. Work hard, save hard and spend a few extra minutes to do what needs to be done. That way when I have motivation to finally do it I wont feel overwhelmed like I am today.

My house is clean, as clean as it can be with a 3 year old, but today is the day that I plan on organizing all of the closets in our house to make more sense for our everyday life. Instead of throwing clothes behind a closed door. As long its shut behind a door it doesn’t exist right? I know almost everyone has one thing they HATE doing. For me that is laundry. I will wash it and dry it all day long but when it comes to folding it and putting it away I fail.

But no more today is the day where everything is cleaned and put away!

Snow

The first snow fall is breath-taking! Everything is dusted with white clean snow. Everywhere you look is clean and fresh covering everything all white. When the sun comes out it can make the snow look like glitter. I love the first snow fall of winter, I look forward to it every year.

With that being said as I cuddle my sick child looking out the window I see that it is snowing. Only a few months after the first snow fall. My joy and love for snow has faded away. I dread the cold short days, many MANY layers of clothes inside and outside. The nice white snow turns brown and gross from the salt we put on the roads. What once was joy is now dreaded.

Where I live the weather is all over the place. It goes from sunny and nice to freezing by the end of the day. However, the light at the end of the tunnel is shining and I can almost see it. With the end of winter near the excitement for spring and summer to come is in the air.

I can not wait for the warm 70 degree days, hours at the pool, beach and splash pad with my kiddo. The long productive days when I get out of work it will be light out for many more hours. But for now I will enjoy the cold, gloomy, snowy days until spring is here to stay.

With all that said I got to go. My child is coughing so hard shes about to puke.

Hows the weather where you live let me know!

First blog post

Have you ever been afraid to try something new? Afraid of failure? Afraid what others may think or say about the new journey you are taking in life? I can tell you I am but, that fear is normal. How can I succeed without trying. Today I am taking the leap of faith and fear to start a blog. I can tell you all right now I have no clue what I am doing but I will try my best.
