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.

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
