Survival kit of the month : very good coffee to make daydreaming more consistent, notebook and pen for wordsmith-ing, warm fluffy head shields and lipgloss to fight the wind, frozen snow and summer feelings. #zorasdailies#survivalkit
So, my lesson today is to always follow your intuition. I’ve been doing this for a few years now and getting stronger and stronger with listening to that inner voice without folding to the ideas and ways of others. .
And today, I was reminded why the “me” that I am becoming is the one I need to listen to because it’s no secret that I like to write. Pen and paper has always been my way because as great as technology is, if something crashes or gets turned off or we have another social media black out, we can lose all our work. .
And unfortunately, that is what happened to me. A few months ago I discovered the drafts option on IG and despite the little voice in my head telling me to back up what I was writing. I didn’t.
So, once you log off @instagram or sometimes update it, you can actually lose all the things you saved in drafts.
Just like that.
Some might say, “oh well, just move.” But for me my words capture my journey in life.
Lessons. 🤦🏾♀️ And are a piece of me.
Adding to my cranky level 9000 status today if you seen my story. .
So, yes it will take me a moment to recover from this but I also acknowledge that this will not be a lesson I will be learning again. .
Always trust your intuition

During the day, while the big kids are at school, it's just me and the little one. He is needy, doesn't play alone, follows me around like he's my tail. I get no rest at all. If I try to shut my eyes for 10 minutes, he jumps on me and tells me to wake up. Usually, I wear no make up and lucky if I get a bra on by 10am. He's lucky he's so cute because otherwise we'd have issues😂. Seriously, I love my boy, I'm just tired! When the big kids get home, it's my time to relax a bit because they entertain him for me.
Sometimes you just got to pat yourself on the back. Feeling tired and a bit like a cold could be coming on. But I went to the gym and I’ve made my food for the day 💪🏽. Lunch - carrot soup with veggies and seafood. Two snacks - smoothie and apple “sandwiches”. Dinner veggie meatball with sweet potatoes and homemade salsa. I rock! 👸🏽 😂

To everyone who had a bad day yesterday or the day before... Today is a new day and you’ve got this!
Some afternoons you just have to make a big cup of whatever and push on through! Our eldest two have been a bit ratty today... could be the heat, could be boredom, but I think it’s releasing from behaving so well at school all week. I get it, I appreciate it but GOSH it can be hard to live with 🤪🤣
Metal Health is a constant struggle. This week has been one of those weeks for me. When you have PTSD and depression things that never upset or bothered you seems to push you over the edge. Well this week rolling into a ball and hiding under my quilt would have been the easiest and most comfortable BUT I have tried even if has killed me to leave the house. Yes it might be with earphones in and music on BUT it’s what ever gets you through #mentalhealthawareness#mentalhealth#gettingthroughtheday#ptsd#musichelps
This really spoke to me today. The weekend was tough, it sucked. Trying to adapt to change is hard. My oldest cleaned Meisha’s cage yesterday and started the process of getting things ready to part with. The quiet and empty cage is a constant reminder. Last night I made myself a list of things to accomplish for today. It’s a gentle reminder to do things and fill time especially when it meant before to make his meals, clean his cage, sit and watch a show together, cuddle and pay bills, listen to music and do school work. He’s been a constant in my life everyday. Day in day out he was a huge part of my days and companionship. Today the list is helpful. I’m grateful to my 2 cats and 2 dogs who all surround me this very moment and have been constant support since our return home without our little butt butt. .
Happy Thursday!!! 😊😁
I’m excited about today’s Leg 🦵 Day!
Also, I have plans to eat dinner out with my little family tonight, which is always fun.
What muscles 💪 are you working today??
Do you have any fun plans tonight?
Thursday’s are usually tough work days for me, so anything I can look forward to is helpful.
Somedays are harder than others. This morning in particular was very difficult. Overwhelmed and overstressed, I cried for a few hours while getting things done. I didn't want to do anything but I got it done. Being a woman is so much more than being a mother. It is so much more than being pregnant. It is being the underlying force that drives your family. The mystical inspiration behind everything. Being a woman is all encompassing, it is loving, it is overwhelming. #woman#womanhood#mothering#harddays#pregnancy#pregnant#gettingthroughtheday#gettingitalldone#beingamother#momming
Truth- Insomnia Sucks!! I’m all about keeping it real. Last night I wasn’t super well (thanks to some hidden gluten, I think). I woke up about 4 times through the night in pain & was awake before 5am- on a Sunday morning!! While last night seems to have been health related, I have suffered insomnia for over 15years, usually worse in times of stress. I have never taken medication for this problem, I have developed a little toolbox of natural remedies which I add to my routine depending on how bad my symptoms are. I’ve shared about it on the blog. #insomnia#naturalhealth#bagsfordays#sotired#essentialoils#breathe#melatonin#sleepcycleap#gettingthroughtheday#keepitreal#honest
It’s Friday!! What are you doing for YOU today? I actually sat down and read a magazine, although I could have finished folding the laundry 🧺 upstairs. One thing we talked about and all agreed on in our bible study is that we don’t take care of ourselves enough. We’re so busy taking care of everyone else that we put ourselves to the side. I know I don’t. It could be as simple as drinking more water 💦...but I’m making more coffee ☕️ to get through the day. I think I might add “self care” to my New Years resolution...and that laundry might have to stay unfolded for a few extra days... .
