Budgeting and Stress

Working part-time is both a blessing and a burden worrying you won't get enough hours to pay your bills. The pressure I feel creates the stress I have now yes I do have help from my boyfriend since he lives with me. Yes, the old half and half way of paying bills but we're still newish I guess I would say. Half on rent, He gets the internet bill since he uses it way more than I do, plus his gaming takes up so much internet everything else is half expect my lawyer fees and I'm having troubles letting him help with the daycare bill.

I do know this I am proud of myself for accepting help.

I have it budgeted out to the point that we pay about the same almost 300 each.  Still trying to get my boyfriend to understand how important it is to budget. He's not getting a hold of the complete idea of a budget but that's what happens when you make money.  Everybody will agree to some point though that budgeting is hard.

That's just my opinion though I've made many budgets and always have trouble finding a way to stick with it. I'm not going to lie my boyfriend isn't the only one with the spending problem I have one too. Before I was part-time I was ordering things off Poshmark almost daily shoes, makeup and clothes I was on Sephora and Ulta. I was trying to buy the void in my life I was on Amazon the most now I wasn't just buying things for me but also my son. I would find the best deals I even downloaded Honey. Any online coupon I could find I was using any deal. I was on a budget or at least when I had all my bills paid. Once I had all my bills paid I'm not kidding when I say I went on a spending spree.

Even with the spending on both his side and my side we still manage. I love him he loves me he loves my son. Right now, in this moment is all that matters yes, I'll stress over bills but he will be there to bring me back down to earth.

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
