I am a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister and a friend and I take pride in all these roles!
If I could be anywhere in the world it would be on a ball diamond, drinking a bud light and sharing laughs with some of my favourite people. Or actually just sitting at home and doing absolutely nothing with my family.
I live on coffee, sarcasm and alcohol which according to a lot of smart people are the worst things for me, but I seem to think I survive quite well on this diet.
I moved after graduating high school to St. Catharines, Ontario to attend Brock University to cure cancer. After a month in BioMedical Science, I quickly realized university biology and chemistry were wayyyyy different than highschool science. After a year in university I realized , university was wayyyyy different than highschool, period. So then I tried to drop out and take esthetics but my parents said…uh no, so instead I switched majors and graduated with a general arts major in Community Health Science with a minor in Psychology. What does that mean? I still have no idea, but what I do know is I have not cured cancer and I still don’t know what I want to do when I grow up.
I did however learn through these studies that mental, physical and emotional health are key components in living life to your fullest potential and engaging and socializing positively in your community. Having even just one curve ball thrown into the mix to mess up this mental-physical-emotional trifecta can have some pretty damaging effects on the whole well-being.
Physically-you become a whale, emotionally-you’re just a mixed mess of overwhelming, anxious, ecstatic and sad/happy feelings and well mentally- you’re trying to keep it together. Is it any wonder moms go a little crazy in the first couple years of motherhood?!?!
Well here I am, on a mission to maybe brighten a day for a new mom with a laugh, smile or even just a friendly reminder that they are doing the best they can! We really are all in it together, we may just be in a different stage than the other!
I’ve always been told sometimes I’m too real, so if you’re reading this and you need a little pick me up…drop your info below so we can vent and share in the real, raw parenting moments of motherhood. I’d love to hear from you!
