Feeling Bad About Feeling Bad.

Feeling Bad About Feeling Bad.

One of the hardest things for me to contend with is allowing myself to feel my feelings. Before accupuncture I was doing a wonderful job of not even realizing what I was feeling. I learned to shut myself completely off from feeling any emotions. As a thirteen-year-old I was quick to feel things. I was even voted most emotional in my…

Needles and Bird Feeders

Here is part two in my Spirit Awakens series. If you need to catch up on the first part of this story just click here. So after my nothing is in your face Mrs. Areal cat scan results I decided to go to acupuncture. Acupuncture sounded much better to me than sitting in an MRI for an hour. I’m not…

The Spirit Awakens

The Spirit Awakens

This post is the first in a series. The story is long and ongoing, but I felt compelled today to start to share it. Before we start I want to share a few things about my spirituality with you.

Middle Child

Middle Child

Today I felt like a bad Mother. Not for the  typical reasons one might think a stay at home mom would think she is a bad mother. I was a badass stay at home mother today;I baked muffins, made an obstacle course, snuggled up and watched Bubble Guppies, had a lively dance party that included twirling ,and put a ream…

Cincinatti Zoo Tragedy

 A devastating accident caused the death of a Gorilla named Harambee at the Cincinnati zoo this weekend.  A curious four-year-old found a way to get into the gorilla enclosure.  He got himself dragged around by a 400-pound gorilla, and got the gorilla killed. Everyone seems to have an opinion about who is to blame. The zoo for not having the enclosure…

Gillian Flynn: Gillian Flynn is the kind of author who gives me story envy . She is hands down my favorite thriller writer of all time. Every…

Motherhood From Where I Sit.

Motherhood From Where I Sit.

 Something about the Spring seems to make kids grow faster. As soon as Spring finally dug her heels in and decided to stay all three of my babies leveled up into new phases of life. My last baby is stepping into toddler-hood. His vocabulary has grown exponentially. This week alone he has added several words to his Mama, Dada, Sister, Brother, and…

This Girl Talks Wrestling.

This Girl Talks Wrestling.

One of the things people find most surprising about me is my adoration for professional wrestling. I was introduced to it by my parents who never missed a PPV, and it just stuck. I mean really every hypothetical famous person fantasy I have ever had centers around me as wrestler.  Her name is Faith, and she is originally the Undertaker…

STOP LIKING OPEN LETTERS ON SOCIAL MEDIA!

Today I am up on my soap box talking about open letters on social media. If me screaming in the title didn’t already tell you that. These testaments of inadequacy that people feel the need to write to explain themselves to people who are going to continue to judge them anyway make me insane!! The thing about people is, no one…

It Feels Like Home to Me.

 I’m back in School, which is another post in itself, but I don’t think I am feeling authentic enough to write it yet. I wanted to share the paper I turned in for a writing assignment. The task was to describe your ideal home. I am hoping this assignment did a little manifesting, because as soon as Uncle Jassy goes…
