Summertime sunshine doesn’t make Mental Health issues magically disappear

I want to be the type of person who WANTS to be around a lot of people, who accepts invitations and actually goes, who can sit around and mindlessly talk and have a drink, who can stay awake past 10 pm (I think this is something I lost in the hospital the day I gave birth over a decade ago). I want to be fun and maybe sometimes to my kids I am, but to other adults, not so much.

Loving our bodies

We have covered the subject of loving our bodies before, but it is an important topic that bears the need to be repeated many times over. Two situations happened to me recently which sort of hit home the fact that we see ourselves in a COMPLETELY different light than other people see us.

All the feels

I find that Summertime is often the busiest time of year in my house, it is a long, long school break filled with many activities to juggle, which often makes time management a little precarious. I have multiple alerts on my phone to make sure everyone gets where they need to be and this morning I found myself eating a gluten free waffle in the car while driving one of my kids to camp (only at red lights by the way, I try to keep 2 hands on the wheel for safety).

Monday Reminder

Just a reminder that everyday presents challenges and struggles, but everyday also presents opportunity; opportunities to do a little better, be a little better, progress a little more, gain understanding and grow. You should be proud of every step forward and show yourself grace when times are hard.

You cannot push any one up a ladder unless he be willing to climb a little himself.

Got that summertime, summertime sadness oh oh…
