Single Parenting

Single parenting isn't easy, you have the stress of your ex either if they are involved or not, but also the fact that you don't have help. I'm not telling you to give up but to realize the joy and happiness you can have. The little moment like just watching your child or children laugh can just melt the stress away. Now, this week has been crazy I finally got to go out and sell. My new job well newish I've been out at the radio station for almost 3 months it's amazing. I've never enjoyed a job so much even after long days of editing.

I guess even though I got off point being a single parent kind of rocks yeah it gets stressful sometimes, but once you find that balance of work parenting and friends. You're golden! It sounds easy but it's far from. It's taken me over a year to just get to where I am now. That would be the edge of having it almost all balanced.......ALMOST.

Seriously, though the amount of pros and cons is are constantly wavering. Se even though you'll have your good days and your bad days it's ok. It's also ok that you get frustrated to want to crawl in a corner for hours and cry. It's never easy doing something on your own.

Really who has the whole parenting thing figured out? Everybody has their own system to raise their kid or kids. Beyond some peoples thought process, there is no right or wrong way to parent. My parenting method raises my child to be self-sustaining and be a respectful human being. I know I'm no expert like the childless people who write books telling you how to raise your kid and what to do and what not to do.

My son may only be 3 and I haven't experienced it all yet as people tell me. I also have to parent a little differently because I have epilepsy. I take the advice I'm open into the idea of trying this or that.

Parenting is a flat mess.

Those people who you see with the 3 kids and a perfect house that make it look so easy. You may think "Man they have their stuff together." but really it's a show per se their kids still act out they still make a mess. I actually was able to keep my house looking like that for a month. It's not easy constantly following my son picking up after him. I even spent a whole Sunday cleaning my house. I do understand though why people have more than one kid now.

All I can really say is do your best raise a decent human. Love that little human to death and live life watch them grow. Treasure every moment put down your phone or use it to take as many pictures as possible.

More Change....It's Good Though

I know I put it on my podcast but need to let my readers know I am enrolling in college, so I'm cutting back in some areas. My blog is my home and the first project that I have been neglecting horribly, and I apologize I use to use it as a safe place from my ex-husband and where my divorce is finally finalized as of September 19th, 2019. I don't really need a safe place anymore, but I still want to strive to help people, and I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but I need to work on myself before I can genuinely help someone else. Starting tomorrow, October 10th, 2019, my boyfriend and I are going to be working out as a couple. I'm excited because well, as cheesy as it sounds, this is a first for me. I'm making new frists with him; we are going to be Pikachu and Ash Ketchum for Halloween; it's another first for me as well. I've been so happy with my life lately; I almost forgot to keep my passion alive. I know that sounds weird, but it happens life

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&#

I really don't know what I want this post to be about, I've talked about unplugging what I'm up to I just won't call writers' block. If  I were to do that though I personally feel like I'd be giving up, I've been racking my head on how to finish out this project I've been working on. I want to tell you, but it's a secret, and I can't wait until everything is done. I will tell you this project is suitable for everyone of any type. I know I've announced that I am now an ambassador for 2 companies, but they still have a couple things in common Craft 1816 and Just Strong. In case you haven't heard of these brands, Craft 1816 is a CBD oil company and is THC free Just Strong is a fitness clothing company based out of the UK. As far as I know from the other ambassadors I've met, they are just really into health or have a form of disability themselves. I haven't met someone with Epilepsy yet. Just Strong believes in mental and physic
