Untitled

I know I've been so spotty over the last...what has it been, two years? 

I pop in every once in a while, only to tease you and disappear again. Life has been crazy, and busy, as I try to figure out my new normal. And here's why...

I got divorced. I was ashamed. Embarrassed. I was disappointed in myself. I moved. I mourned. I cried. I prayed. I fought. I worked more. I worked on myself. I worked on being a better mom. I lost friends. I lost confidence. I took a lot of flack. I over analyzed everything. I stressed. I gained weight. I worried. I struggled. I prayed more. I got stronger. I quit worrying about what people would think. I focused on myself. I poured all of my love into Henry. I grew. I focused on me. I realized that it's ok to make myself happy. I kept fighting. I didn't give up. I found true happiness. I'm still learning and growing, but I know in my heart that everything happens for a reason.

I haven't gotten a lot right in my life, but one thing I did get right was Henry...and I'm good at being his mother. Loving him is easy, and it's what I was meant to do. 

I'm thankful to share this life with him. <3

I know there will be judgements and I might even lose followers, but at this stage, I'm ok with that. People have asked and now I've answered.

  1. No judgement here. I always feel that going through a divorce is similar to a grieving process; everyone does it in their own way and there are no time limits to the process, just take as long as you need to find what works for you. I'm happy to see that you and your son seem to be doing well.

  2. I'm glad you're happy. It's a great feeling to not worry what others think. It takes a while to get there, and you will find who your true friends are and even if you have a couple good friends that's better than a hundred shitty friends. I'm proud of you love.

  5. I'm sure this took an incredible amount of courage and I applaud you for that (I'd also like to add that it gave me goosebumps). You have a lot of life left to live and you deserve to be happy! Henry is lucky to have you as a mom. :)

  6. Don't worry what other think, you do you girl. xo. I love looking at your posts of life, little one, and just fun. But it is also so amazing to see someone being real truthful and honest. People gravitate towards that and if they don't no need for those haters any ways. Girl we haven't even met in person and I feel like I know you already. Your human and your the best mom ever for that precious boy. You deserve it all! Love to you. xo
