Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.”

Mark Twain

I quoted Mark Twain last night to my best friend who just broke up with her boyfriend. A little back story (I blame myself for one) I set them up together she got out of a bad relationship and I set her up with this guy who was a family friend who I thought was a really nice guy, but he's one of those guys that shows their bad side once deep into the relationship. They left on good terms (I still would like to put him in the ground) which shows the level of maturity the reason I'm so upset is because he asked her to move in with him and then turns around and breaks her heart where she has to move back home where she has no job no house (Yeah mom and dad but still) he makes her feel that there is something wrong with her there isn't she's an amazing person. He's messed with her mind which upsets me big time I want to put him 6 foot under but she won't let me. (Plus I'm a lot of talk)
Here's to the girls/women out there this is my motherly advice (After all I go by the name of Epileptic Mom)
  1. When a guy/gal breaks your heart it will heal
  2. You are beautiful you don't need a man/partner to tell you that
  3. You matter
  4. Your soulmate is out there
  5. It was just the wrong timing
  6. Grab the girls and go out
  7. Grab the ice cream
  8. It's okay to cry your heart was just shattered into a million pieces
  9. Being alone for a while is a good thing you can figure out who you are and what you are meant to be and do you can find your strength but remember not to harden your heart that makes you who you are and is your beauty
  10. You're never alone
Don't let yourself depend on someone else I do not say don't depend on anyone but don't lean on someone when you don't have to. I lean on my husband more than I should and I'm his wife you may hear stuff like "When you're in a relationship that's what the other person is for" or "they're your other half you should let them help" This teaches young ones to depend on others instead of depending on themselves. Every heartbreak has a lesson on either what not to do or what to do you learn from it.
I don't like seeing people hurt it hurts me I am one of those people who wishes happiness for everyone. You have my list and honestly if you Google what to do after a break up you get multiple options. I didn't Google a list to make the one on here that came from the heart I'm the married friend I've gotten used to giving advice and I've gotten better at giving good advice. Now parenting advice still figuring that out that's an entirely different post. I could go on and on about how to deal with a breakup or what you should do but I don't want to write a book. (Or series) I mean if that day comes that I'm writing a self-help book then so be it. I put myself out there to help you.

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
