It’s been a short minute since I’ve wrote a new blog.
I owe no one an explanation. I’ve come to deal with that thought a lot about who I am as a mom, friend, daughter, etc.
My mental health needs attention. So that’s what I will take time to handle accordingly. I am absolutely okay.
I stepped back from social media by deleting the apps from my phone as well as reeled it in a bit on my time with my family.
My family does not deserve me staring at my phone while I’m with them when we are already away from each other for most of the days at work and daycare.
They don’t deserve a woman in their life who is comparing herself to the other moms in the world, wives on tik tok, or models in ads.
They deserve me to be in each moment with them at home. Even if we are sitting on the couch watching a movie together, it should be that. All of us all together on one couch watching the same thing. Not each of us on our own devices.
Others do not get full access to me either. My priorities are simply that. My priorities.
Nothing else should make me question if someone gets privileges to my life and dictating when and how I do something.
No is a complete sentence. I rarely use it and feel rude if I do, but it is. I should feel no repercussion and guilt for saying it when I either don’t have time to do something or cannot allow it in my space when there are a million other things I want or need to do.
I have many thoughts and ideas on this blog to share with you all. I have to believe someone else reading this has felt or is feeling the same way I have lately and that’s why I wanted to share it with you.
It’s certainly more in depth than the words you read above because my anxiety is real. The amount of pressure I put on myself is far too much. I will continue to put myself first in the best way possible while still doing this blog because I love sharing mom life with you all!
There are many of you who inspire me and help me so sharing that along the way is fun for me to do. But not without ensuring my mental health and family come first.
Have a wonderful day and weekend ahead!
