Days 2-4 on Zoloft – My Postpartum Anxiety Story

I Feel A Little Better and a Little Not Ok, I know it’s not an overnight fix but I do feel a little better. Granted, I’m writing this while laid in bed working from my computer, but I feel good. I need to go outside though, it’s strange to have the feeling of wanting to do something. For so long […]

Powering Through Day 1 – Postpartum Anxiety

Night or is it Day? It’s 11:50pm on Wednesday night, the day I went to the doctor. I don’t really know what to write about today that I didn’t write already. But, I guess I can sum up that I’m still awake because I’m scared. I’m scared to take Zoloft. There, I said it so now I can overcome it, […]

You Need To Know, You Aren’t Alone Postpartum

I’m Semi Ok Look, I’m all about hustling after what fulfills you. Every day hustle towards the light, but what happens when the darkness swoops in? What happens when you feel like nothing you do is right, no one cares, and you are wasting your life? The day I realized I wasn’t ok was shortly after, or maybe during, my […]

Mother’s Day Mother’s Day a celebration of the mom you are in whatever way that may be. For me, I am reclaiming my life as the mother I am and the person I am. The mother I thought I was (or rather was trying to be) is gone and I’m making way for this fearless mother who isn’t afraid to […]

I’m a Bad Mom at Bedtime – A Threenager Story

Threenager Urban Dictionary describes the Threenager as a “three year old child spouting attitude like a spoiled teenager.” That is literally what we are dealing with lately with Kbebe. It’s like a light switched and his 3.5 year old self turned into a monster. Like the Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story, his Hyde side is emerging and it is […]

Princess Kate Makes Me Feel…

Strong This past week, Princess Kate gave birth to her third baby and opened herself up for criticism. As some saw her stepping out 7 hours after her baby was born, I saw it as pure strength. Memes floated around comparing her to “real moms” and people felt they had the right to somewhat shame her way of life. Because […]

Earth Day Forever With Amy’s Green Cleaning

Earth Day is Over It’s over, right? It’s one day long, or weekend, the party where we all recycle and the World is saved. Then the next day we hit up the store and revert back to the way we were before. Not this year! I’m putting my foot down and (trying) making a permanent change in our lifestyle. We already […]

Don’t be Afraid to Hustle After What Fulfills You

The Definition of Hustle There are many definitions of the word hustle. Merriam-Webster says the definition is “to crowd or push, to convey hurriedly, to obtain by energetic activity”.

I Only Know How to Hustle

The Hustle As a kid I was bred to hustle. Hustle up on the ball field, to get in the car, to eat, and always stay busy. As an adult it is as if I cannot slow down. I thrive off the chaos and the hustle. The challenge to find solutions excites me, and basically I have no chill. But […]
