No Dog?

Re-homing your dog is not an easy thing to do it's conflicting I'm here sitting thinking if I should do it or not. I'm the person who seeks out advice or someone to tell me what to do. I have that problem I grew up never getting the chance to make my choices for me. So as an adult I ask what should I do to as many people I can the one person I can always count on is my brother I ask him and he gives me the best way to help me make my own decision. Where I feel conflicted I asked him and he said

"That's why you break it down and deal with one issue at a time. Don't let the others distract. Track your conflict backwards until you can come up with one answer. Then move on to the next and the next until you come across a decision"

Now it may be that he took physiology classes in college and whatnot, but it's still good advice. I was also told to write it down. What's my decision going to be I don't know yet but hopefully, I can figure it out. Here are some of the reasons re-homing my baby is a good idea
  1. We can't provide what she needs right now
  2. She'll be with her new person more
  3. She will be disciplined properly (my husband has a hard time with that)
  4. The household is busier than ours
  5. She'll be loved just as much
  6. It'll be good for both her and my husband's grandmother
  7. Less tension in the house
I know it's like I'm never going to see her again I always find myself trying to find reasons why we can't give her up. I sit her thinking is she a need or a want I know that sounds bad because she's a living creature but do I need a dog or want one. I know life will go on but I feel my heart in my chest just falling into my stomach. I keep asking is my son old enough to understand? Is she going to be able to handle the stress of moving? I know she'll be okay but I have a friend that rehomed her dog once upon a time. He ran off on the people she gave him to. Is Laila going to do that to my husband's grandmother? I'm thinking of my conflicting matters and I feel like I do it more and more. I feel selfish almost as if keeping her isn't a good thing. I know it's not a selfish thing as well because I have a bond with her my feelings are there with her.

The list of reasons not to is different from the other list
  1. I love her
  2. Is she going to continue eating
  3. Is she going to be happy
  4. Will her immune disorder comeback
  5. Am I being forced into this
They all come out questions, not facts like the first one there lies the difference in its self I don't know if I'm looking for excuses to keep her or if they are excuses to give her up. If we retrain her can we keep her? There is so much going on in my heart and my head I hope nobody else has to go through this like I do.

I'm going to be handing over my first child and pretty much say her take care of her it's almost like I'm being guilt-tripped
into it as well.

Mom Life

If you're a mom you might just ask yourself this question almost daily "Am I a bad mom" I know I do and I normally talk to my best friend or my boyfriend about it and why I feel that way. I always get told the same thing by both of them "NO you are not a bad mom you are doing what you can" That is one this every mom needs to remember you're no a bad mom if it's your first child no matter how old they are you're still learning. Every day is a new lesson. You're never truly are on your own when it comes to parenting even if it feels like it at times. As being a human you're constantly learning even if you don't realize it. Just because it's not a big lesson sometimes the smaller ones can be more of an impact than the big ones.  My toddler constantly tests my patience he tries to push me to my breaking point. I get mad but I have to take a deep breath. I know he doesn't understand but sometimes I think he knows exactly what he&#

A New Decade or Chapter

It's that time a year again but, I have to do something new this year I'm considered self-employed thanks to my book . I never thought I would be able to say I'm self-employed even though I haven't broken even yet. I'm so grateful for 2019 and am ready to embrace 2020! It let in a new chapter of my life and I'm even working on my second book that will be done here soon. I'm not sure to this day if I took my first book in the right direction. The thing is you live and you learn though I hope to make a difference with my books  or book as of this moment I only have one. I do hope on releasing my second book this year titled Myself. I'm doing something that I never thought I would do but I'm revealing my true self I talked some about what I've been through in You.  I'm taking off my brave face and am going to reveal my feelings it's hard but I'm doing it. The thing is how am I going to help someone if I'm still hiding You . It

Listen to Your Body

I always talk about how important health is mind and body, but it doesn't prepare you for unexpected health issues. Unfortunately, that's what's going on with me. I don't know exactly what's going on I do know I've gotten into the doctor as soon as possible. That's something someone should do if somethings not right monitor it and if it doesn't stop after a few days go to the doctor. I'm no medical professional this is just my opinion. I ended up finding out what was going on. I'm still going through all the treatment it was nothing deadly nothing dangerous. I'm glad everything has been figured out. Remember if something is abnormal with your body check it out your health is important. This is partially the reason I've been gone in the month of November. I found out that I abnormal bleeding in my womanhood. I accidentally overlap with two different types of birth control the depo shot and the arm implant. So that life lesson has been
