Feel Good Friday – Group Hug

*nods*

Do you agree?

I feel like there is so much discord in the world these days, we all need a group hug, to accept each other as the diverse, different creatures we are and to love each other unconditionally!

I know, sometimes it seems like a pipe dream… but I don’t see why it is so hard!

Feel Good Friday – Shine Your Brightest!

Do you… see yourself as a constant self-improvement project?

Do you… approach self-love with an all-or-nothing attitude?

Are you… hard on yourself — especially your body?

Is there something you are attempting to get rid of by sweeping it under the rug?

It’s important to be mindful of coming from a place of wanting to LEARN and GROW and shine BRIGHTER, not from a place of ‘there is something wrong with me and I need to fix it.’

There is nothing wrong with you – you are beautiful and perfect. And there is nothing wrong with improving upon that. We are here to be our best selves; nothing less!

And if you need help with that, I’m here, always. I’m always working on being my best self too, so we can do it all together 💕

Feel Good Friday – Feeling Better!

Woke up today feeling much more human, much less stuffed up, less pressurized up there oh and less dizzy! Weeee!

Riding out the rest of the germs and getting some more work done (I’ve actually been grateful to have work that can be taken home, as I haven’t been able to do much else and I can only sleep/watch so much TV, so being able to be work-productive in a restful setting was a saving grace for my sanity!)

Of course my sidekick is passed out on my feet 😍

Feel Good Friday – Messy Hair, Don’t Care!

Some people want perfectly coiffed hair (and there’s nothing wrong with that – and some days that’s me!), and some people would rather toss it up in a messy bun and instead use that time to get some fresh air by the water, while the sun wakes up. ☀️

Today the messy bun was me! I soaked it all in and was talking to the baby, telling him or her I can’t wait to take them to the beach, to dip their feet in the ocean for the first time and feel the sand between their toes… so many exciting things to look forward to! 😍

(And no, I don’t feel weird talking to an unborn baby!)

Mamas, did you talk to your baby while they were in utero?

 

Happy Friday!

Happy February, happy Friday!

Bloodwork today, hoping that it reflects the insulin is continuing to do its job, and if so, discussing the possibility of getting off the pills, as I don’t feel they did anything and I think everyone knows how I feel about pharmaceuticals (I realize and accept that I am now married to insulin for life…)

But if not today, we are closer; I know it!

 

Feel Good Friday – Reunited!

I can’t remember the last time I slept til 8:30… I suppose being up 24 hours and partying with the Brumm’s for most of that will do that to ya! 😉

Last night we went bowling, enjoyed nachos and beer, then came home and drank with her husband, went mudding on the golf cart, laughed a LOT, and had FUN!

I just love spending time with the Brumm’s, it’s always so fun!

Feel Good Friday – You DO Have 5 Minutes

We are all busy.

We all have stressors.

We all have “stuff“.

But the healthiest, happiest and most successful people are the ones that learn to cope and manage all of that instead of letting it CONSUME them.

What works for some might not work for others.

I am forever a work in progress with coping and handling stress, but compared to how I used to “cope”, I am so very proud of how far I have come.

And I used to think I was ‘too busy’ to take five minutes to appreciate fresh air, sunshine and the peace and quiet… but it turns out making that a priority helps everything else!

Coffee helps, too 😉

Happy Friday!
