I'm in a really great mood today! The weather is beautiful!! I absolutely love when the weather breaks. I love being able to go outside and feel the warm sun on my skin.
I'm really not a fan of winter weather. Don't get me wrong when we get the opportunity to go out and play in 30" of snow I'm there but I just really prefer warm weather. I'm not confined to a huge coat and I don't have the numb feeling of that crisp cold air.
Warm weather makes me happy. To be quite honest I wasn't in the best of moods this morning before I left the house, but as soon as I walked out of the door it was like all those negative feelings melted away. I'm so grateful that I got the chance to get out and soak up the sun like Sheryl Crow today!
Good morning my loves!
Today's post will be a little bit different from my normal posts.
Yesterday my daughter had a cheer competition and my son had a basketball game. Unfortunately, my daughter's team placed last and my son's team lost by 20 points.
As a mom, it was really tough for me to watch my children experience these losses. However, it reminded me of my purpose as their mother. I want my children to be happy whether they win or lose. They will never learn to be happy no matter what if they don't experience Both the highs and the lows.
My job is to be there for them and to help them to see that there is always something to be happy about. Even if it is the opportunity to redeem yourself at the next game or competition.
I love you Justin!
I love you Jada!
I am so proud of you!!!
Happy Saturday my loves!
Last night my daughter and I had what we call a Friday Night Dance Party in our living room.
I realized last night that dancing is my passion. I love to dance! Dancing makes me feel free. It's almost as if I am somewhere else when I'm dancing. I would say that I become someone else but it's more like I am the true me when I am dancing. I'm not worried about anyone else when I'm dancing. I am so excited because I've been searching for my passion for a long time. I hope you all have your own version of a Friday Night Dance Party!
I have been trapped for years. I've been trapped in a prison I created. There have been so many limitations that I have put in myself without even realizing it. It may have begun with small choices like not going out with friends in order to stay at home with the family. At this point though, I only go out without my husband or the children one of three places: work, the gym or the grocery store. As I've mentioned before my life has been completely devoted to my family.
One thing has changed since my last post. I have finally gotten past the guilt. Yes, I felt guilty for wanted to things for me. I felt guilty for wanting to spend time without my family. While I understood that it was necessary for me to take time for myself, I still felt guilty. Now over a year later, my emotions are finally in line with my mind.
