Honestly, this blog is going to be all over the place. Every time I’ve come to write, I become stumped. I can’t pick a topic to focus on. So my idea is to focus on everything that’s been going on with Calm Mom.
Who else is an over thinker? Gosh, does it ever drive me nuts. I over think the fact that I over think! My most effective course of action lately has been to let it go. Save myself the stress and worry that comes along with over thinking. But I’m not successful always.
Sometimes I can’t help it and try to redirect my thoughts to something positive like how I’ve recently started to count macros and have had some substantial results, quickly for that matter. Not so much physically but mentally. I’m learning a new way to stay on track and enjoy the foods I’m eating at the same time. Although I have seen results physically, thanks to counting macros and hitting up the gym.
There’s been a frustrating struggle lately and it’s been family matters. Going through a break up with a child involved is difficult. I have been so blessed because for me the break up has meant a sense of freedom from such a negative, toxic environment. It’s also given me the opportunity to find a man who is genuine, caring, supportive, this list could go on forever. I’m so thankful for the loved ones in my life who care immensely for my daughter. She is thriving. What a happy, funny, intelligent, young girl she is becoming. It’s like she changes every day. There’s always something new and exciting. She warms my heart.
Where the struggles have been is the overwhelming amount of steps to be taken to finalize boundaries legally in family court. Finding a great lawyer has helped wonders though.
Continued struggles lay within the communication with the father of my daughter. There’s matters that arise that are irrelevant to our daughter and to me there’s no need for a discussion about the past. Without going into further detail, I’ll leave it at, it’s tricky.
On a different note, I need to give a shout out to my Superwoman, Jenna Yvonne McNamara. When I tried to give up on my journey because I had felt like I’d failed, she was right there to pick me up, dust me off and remind me of what I’m capable of. So here I am, rebooted, renewed and continuing my journey like a boss.
Great things have been and continue to be in store for me. I’m loving my life and smiling on the daily. I’m optimistic and excited for what the future has in store for me.
Lots of love,
