Χθες είχα πολλά μηνύματα σχετικά με το κραγιόν που φορούσα κι επειδη ειναι συνδυασμός τριών προϊόντων είπα να σας κάνω ένα γρήγορο βιντεακι για να το δείτε... Το μολύβι και το κραγιόν είναι @lovie_cosmetics αλλά το lipstick είναι από @primark 💋💋💋

From Ashton being teeny I have always been busy with him, from walks, adventures to craft activities! 🥰
We never just do nothing, I think it's my past career that comes out in me, working in childcare I did every activity under the sun! 😆
...
..
.
So I am still learning now even when our Baba is TWO that it's okay to have a chilled day at home! I always have Mamma guilt if we have a chilled afternoon, I feel like I should be doing some craft or messy play! 🤩
I am getting better and I know that he loves having a day at home too! ❣️
Anyone else the same? Or just me 🤣

I was challenged to recreate a look (the last pic) earlier this month. I finally sat down this afternoon and gave it a shot. It’s not perfect, but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. BUT.... I keep forgetting I did it and wondering why my Face ID won’t unlock my phone 🤷🏻‍♀️😂🤪 *The lighting made me look even paler than usual - this is actually just my normal Ivory MakeSense foundation. 🤷🏻‍♀️💀 .

Apple-picking by day, pumpkin viewing by night. Fresh donuts/fried dough all day. 🍎🎃🍩 We found the pumpkin Tenley carved in kindergarten this week and in doing so, ran into her teacher Mrs Coffey and also Mr Coffey. It was a fun and busy day (which also included errands and lunch at Panera). We’re cramming in the last few New England-ish things before we return to Utah this week.

As my girls start to get older I’ve started thinking about young me.
My childhood, my teenage years, my early 20’s.
And I end up feeling embarrassed, at times ashamed but then sad.
There were so many moments in my life I acted solely to get validation, support or just simply love.
I wish I could go back to young me and just give her a hug. Give her some of the wisdom I’ve accumulated in my 30’s. But instead I’m fortunate enough to raise my girls instead. I hope I am able to fill them with love and confidence and support. I hope they do not feel the need to seek things from others that they should have inside.
How about you? What would you say to young you?

Bump watch!
.
#18weeks and I realised I haven’t taken a progress shot for a whole month!
.
So true what they say about having full photo albums of your first, then taking less and less with each child.....I just didn’t realise it started when they are still in the womb 🤣
.
Heading to the beach this morning (obvs) but I’m not going to lie.....I was self conscious about my changing body for a minute and wearing a cossie (it’s not just the bump growing - my thighs and upper arms are growing, too!), until I decided that was a waste of bloody time!!
.
Focusing on being happy & healthy is a far better use of my time 😁
.
What are you all up to today?

🍁 Cedarwood (15ml): 300pv ER or Quick Order

.
Here are some diffuser combos to get you started:
.
👀 Focus: 2 Drops Frankincense + 2 Drops Cedarwood + 2 Drops Vetiver
.
🍂🍁Crunchy Leaves: 5 Clove + 2 Orange + 1 Cedarwood
.
😴Afternoon Nap: 5 drops Cedarwood + 5 drops Lavender

It was a SLEEP IN Saturday – and I slept in 3 hours!!! Until 7:30 am and here I am with hair plastered by 😓 sweat to my forehead.⠀

Now I really - I mean REALLy enjoyed those extra three hours and looked at them like a nice treat for 🤗myself.⠀ ⠀ ⠀
But I felt myself slipping.⠀
I said to myself - take a break – stay in bed and rest… NO ONE WILL KNOW. ⠀
Those were the words I spoke to myself this morning annnnd my husband said to me.⠀ ⠀
I really wanted to skip my workout 🏋️‍♀️ and stay in bed 🛌 longer I told myself…⠀ ⠀
.....You are old – almost 50 and cannot keep up this pace.

......You have not had a vacation in six months.

......You have not gone out to dinner with your husband in 3 wks.

......Girl – your nails are rachet… you’re missing the nail on your index finger –– and your toes look like straight up talons you NEED to get your nails done STAT!!!⠀

.......You need to clean this house. ⠀
And then I told 🌈myself⠀ ⠀
You just gave yourself 3 extra hours of sleep and you feel amazing.⠀

Calm the 🤬 down and look at your schedule and get your 🤬up and work out.
⠀⠀
AND THAT’S WHAT I DID – WORKED OUT – I GOT MY 48 ¾ yr old body moving.⠀ ⠀
And here’s what I know⠀
⠀⠀
🗣 If I give up and go back to my old ways, I’ll will never go any further physically or mentally and will not be any good to myself or my family. ⠀
🗣 If I give up, those Friday casual jeans will be too tight - again. ⠀
🗣 I have 3 kids at home and a husband and a FOREVER shedding Frenchie so my house will never be clean.

🗣 Yes, you’re busy, but if you do not continue to work on building those relationships – you won’t have them – SO MAKE THE TIME!!! ⠀⠀

🗣 Bottom line – the work will always be there – get out of your own head and work on your priorities first – 1) health – 2) family – 3) friends - then the rest will happen. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
My 3️⃣0️⃣days of gratitude group is starting! If you could use a quick shift in mindset to help you focus on your priorities- drop me an emoji and I will get you the details. XO 😘 Sam

These friggin 🍪🍪 are DELICIOUS! 😋 I’m honestly surprised at how good they are because they’re healthy. Often times healthy = flavor of cardboard. 🙅🏾‍♀️ Not this time! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾

This is the best thing I could have possibly learnt! It's ok to want to help out, but not if it means sacrificing your mental/emotional health. There's no point in saying yes just to please someone else. ⠀

All that's going to do is leave you feeling trapped, demotivated and maybe even resentful in the end. This is an area that it's ok to be selfish about. Think about your mental health and what you need! ⠀

How to know if it serves you.⠀

✔️Will this elevate you or your brand?⠀

✔️Did it take constant pleading to get you to say yes?⠀

✔️What outcome are you expecting from doing it? ⠀

✔️Does the outcome have anything to do with you or your fundamental goals?⠀

And there are so many other questions you can ask, but start there.

If you haven't already, start protecting your energy from things/situations that could potentially pull you down. 🙌🏾 ⠀ ⠀
How are you protecting your space? ⠀⠀

John Wayne Airport, Orange County

Sitting on the airplane headed back to Denver after our trip to CA, and I read this section in the book I brought with me (it’s called Slay Like a Mother, and I’m reading it for @happiestmamaontheblock5280 ‘s upcoming event with the author). It occurred to me that I’m asking you to do overcome some tough stuff in order to sign up for my Do Less, Be More program:
1. Commit to yourself by saying yes to a program that will help you slow down and prioritize time for what’s important to you on a regular basis.
2. Take time out of your already busy schedule to attend the once per week 60-minute coaching calls.
3. Admit that things in your life are busier and more hectic than you want them to be.
Am I right?
Let me tell you that I believe #3 is the toughest of the 3 to overcome. Our society shows us that we need to have it all figured out...to do all and be all things. But, not only is it exhausting to do all and be all...it’s even more exhausting when you’re telling yourself and others that things are “just fine” when really you aren’t sure how to keep up with it all.

Your secret is safe with me. And, it’s also safe with the other women who have signed up for the program already. They’ve decided to take some steps to do less so they can BE more.

I’m not perfect at it myself, but I can tell you I “do” a lot less than I used to and no longer feel like I have to wear the mask that the author is talking about in this image. It is so freeing!

Join me in my upcoming program, Do Less, Be More: it starts on Wednesday, October 23, and I have a few spots left!

The link to sign up is in my bio!

Your secret is safe with me.  And, it’s also safe with the other women who have signed up for the program already.  They’ve decided to take some steps to do less so they can BE more.

I’m not perfect at it myself, but I can tell you I “do” a lot less than I used to and no longer feel like I have to wear the mask that the author is talking about in this image.  It is so freeing!

Join me in my upcoming program, Do Less, Be More: it starts on Wednesday, October 23, and I have a few spots left!

The link to sign up is in my bio!

Today’s workout was one of the most challenging I’ve ever completed. 😓 But this little beauty saw me struggling during the army crawl and started yelling “come on, come on momma.” I’ll tell ya that’s motivation right there. 💪 In that instance I remembered why I show up.

I hear a lot of excuses from moms who say they can’t spend the money/time on taking care of themselves. 😔 As if it’s just for herself. But it’s not. It’s for them too. First of all a healthy, happy momma benefits everyone. 🙌 It’s also an opportunity to model the importance of taking care of the body God gave us, not because we hate it, but because we are called to care for it. I love that my kids will learn to be strong and healthy from me too and not just their dad. They will learn about grit and determination. About setting goals and going after them. And nothing reminded me of that more than this little girl today! 💕

I may have had to drop out of the push-ups, or drop the weights to something lighter, or to my knees for diamond push-ups, or pause my workout to get in all 50 reps of each move... but it was worth it for my adorable little motivator! 🥰 👀 my stories to check out my workout today.

I admit this week was a struggle for me mentally and physically. Balancing work, family, school, and life took a toll on me these last few days. I was mentally physically exhausted. Even though I missed two workouts I’m back at it and catching up! Not giving up! I’m not perfect but I needed to listen to my body. Sometimes we all need some self care. My family has been my rock and pushing me through it all and I’m so grateful for them!
I’m now ready to finish the rest of MM100! 🤗

Super important that you watch for grass fed AND Grass finished. Grain finished speeds the product up to market sooner yet those are sick animals who are inflamed. cows are not meant to eat grains only grass. If you are consuming animals that are fed the wrong food it equals higher information in you. You are what you eat. #insideouthealthco #properlysourced #eatreal #beef #cows #condimeat #know etterdobetter #nograin #inflammation #nutritionist #busymama #momto4

Sometimes she just needs a minute....⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lately my daughter has been sitting down right where she is and refuses to get up. She picks the grass, plays in the dirt, does anything BUT listen to what I’m asking her to do.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The best thing I can do in these moments is just let her be. She comes around. She needs a few minutes to decompress. And I totally understand. I realized I do the exact same thing. I don’t sit on the ground and play in the dirt, but I often get to the point where I just need a little time to myself. This is her way of doing it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Once I realized this is me, too, I became so much more patient with her moments on the ground.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This independent little girl teaches me so much every day 💜⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Σήμερα το πρωί βρεθήκαμε οικογενειακως στο @kitchenlab_official στη Γλυφάδα όπου συναντήσαμε την υπέροχη και ταλαντούχα @agapikan, το δημιουργικό μυαλό του @thecraftroomgr σε ένα #halloween workshop όπου ο Βαγγέλης κι άλλα ζουζούνια έγιναν οι βοηθοί του φοβερού και τρομερού σεφ Τεραντορ κι έφτιαξαν τερατοburger🍔 κι άλλα πολλά τερατουργηματα με τα οποία όμως διασκέδασαν με την ψυχή τους και ειδικά ο μικρός μου πήρε μια γεύση, ίσως και την πρώτη θα έλεγα από #halloween έτσι ακριβώς όπως ήθελα να γίνει με δημιουργικό κι ευφάνταστο τρόπο!!!

👻

Όσο για την @agapikan τι να πω;;; ένα ευχαριστώ κι ένα μπράβο... Είναι ο άνθρωπος που μπορεί να μετατρέψει το κοφτό μακαροτσινι σε μαμούνια για burger κι απλά respect στη φαντασία και τη δημιουργικότητα αυτού του πλάσματος!!!

Νυχτερίδες🦇 κι αράχνες🕸️ κατέκλυσαν λοιπόν σήμερα το @kitchenlab_official και περάσαμε φανταστικά!!! Κι εμείς μετά μαζί με τον μπαμπά μας απολαύσαμε και #burgerap από τα χέρια του @akis_petretzikis (σιγά μη χάναμε ευκαιρία εδώ που τα λέμε 😂😂😉😉😊😊).

Here are my BEST tips for reducing the amount of weekly laundry you have!
1️⃣Wear the same damn thing both weekend days!  I see no reason to wear something different each day unless we have big plans!

2️⃣And kind of like #1, I wear my jeans, some work pants, and heck, my comfy pants, multiple times before washing them.

3️⃣Do you workout?  Skip the tank top and just rock it in your sports bra and pants and you are saving yourself even more laundry.
4️⃣Pajamas? What are those?  A sports bra and underwear is all you need (or nothing at all!!) and takes up less space in the washer.  TMI!?! Oh well!

And speaking of laundry, am I the only one who also doesn’t sort their laundry and just throws all colors in at the same time?  I mean, unless they are brand new dark jeans, why separate the clothes??

I alwayssss do this. I immediately want to start pointing out that MORE progress should have been made during this time between, and maybe so. But I remind myself that progress is progress no matter how little, and it is. So don’t get caught up in your mind and stay stagnated in your thoughts thinking of the shoulda have coulda haves and all that extra. Embrace your struggle and continue the fight ❤️ •

Y’all my workout was called The Crucible this morning. This was the very last rep of these army crawls and the last move of the entire workout. Maybe I should have taped myself when my body was fresh and not tired 😆This was an awesome workout. I said Anna come here and tape the last one because I wanted to see if I was keeping my form right.
If you want to get an awesome full body workout then this program is for you.
If you want to test the limits of what your body can do then this workout is for you.
If you want to do new moves daily and never feel bored then this workout is for you.

If you want to tone your body and change the shape of your body then this workout is for you.

If you want to do this all in a short amount of time and anywhere(home,work,gym,hotel,etc) then this workout is for you.

If you want a personal trainer without the cost of a trainer then this workout is for you.

If you want a little extra motivation to stay on track then I’m your girls!

If this sounds like you then let’s chat. Message me ❤️

Happy Saturday, mamas! Today, try to get outside and soak up some vitamin d. •
Sometimes when you’re feeling so drained and/or suffocated, changing up the environment and getting some fresh air can help you BREATHE. The sun has so many benefits, including boosting your mood.

If going for a walk seems too overwhelming, try sitting outside of your home for just 5-10 minutes. Direct your attention to your breathing and try this quick grounding technique by...
* Finding 5 things you can see
* Listening for 4 things you hear
* Touch 3 things around you
* 2 things you can smell
* And 1 thing you can taste

I hope this helps you get through your day and many more to come! You spend all of your last energy on your little, but it’s time to nurish YOU, mama.

Lets just say with my hubby stuck and the craziness going on on Lebanon l, it’s been more than stressful to say the least. I know he finally made it to the airport, but it’s been radio silent since yesterday and i won’t be able to hear from him until he crosses through security in another hour or so. So it’s been deep breathes through the might & this am. I’m even more grateful to live in Canada and looking forward to I’m being back by my side and not in a war zone. 😔 .
That being said i do my best to keep life going. The kids are busy, we are staing activemy dad came early so I could go for an early morning run, my mom came so i can go to gymnastics with Yaz. If all goes according to plan the hubby we’ll be back & safe by dinner time tomorrow

It’s easy to judge someone when you don’t know where they have come from or where they plan on going.⁣

I have shared this already but one of the most important things I have accepted this year is that my second postpartum journey is not like my first. I fought it for a while but have come to realize all the reasons why. ⁣

What the female body goes through to grow a child is wild! Did you know that your hips actually become wider than before pregnancy because your pelvic area expands so you can push a baby out of your body? So your waist will always be a little wider than before and that’s OK. Did you know that your ab muscles have to stretch to accomodate your growing bump? My abs bounced back a lot quicker after my first because they had only been through the stretch once. After the second not as fast and that’s OK.⁣


𝑳𝒆𝒕 𝒎𝒆 𝒎𝒂𝒌𝒆 𝒊𝒕 𝒄𝒍𝒆𝒂𝒓 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝒑𝒓𝒆/𝒑𝒐𝒔𝒕 𝒃𝒂𝒃𝒚 𝒘𝒆𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕𝒔 𝒅𝒐 𝒏𝒐𝒕 𝒅𝒆𝒇𝒊𝒏𝒆 𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝒑𝒐𝒔𝒕𝒑𝒂𝒓𝒕𝒖𝒎 𝒋𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒏𝒆𝒚. If talking about weight doesn’t bother you then talk about it. If it does then don’t. And honor the changes your body has been through. With my first pregnancy I gained 35 pounds which is totally healthy and lost 20 directly after having my baby. . With my second I gained 45 lbs again not unhealthy and lost 20 lbs after again. It’s just the extra pounds are taking longer to come off after the first and that’s OK.⁣

Here is the truth until you have gone through the ten months of pregnancy, labor, newborn daze, sleep deprivation, massive hormone shifts, the constant worry if you’re doing this all right again you really have no idea where Moms have been. You really don’t know. And once you think you’ll get sleep teething starts. So give yourself a break! Quit beating yourself up! Work on your health but don’t lose your sanity. Don’t loathe the process. Trust you can do whatever you put your mind too and zone out all the people that feel they have a right to say anything about where you are at because guess what? They have no idea where you have been. • •
—Being a Mom is tough, don’t make it harder on yourself by hating your body that just did something amazing!

When Nash saw Daddy getting ready for practice early this morning, he INSISTED on joining him. So PJs and all, to the gym we went 😴 (dont worry, I changed out of my fuzzy pink bathrobe...begrudgingly). .

Gratitude is the wine for the souls. ⁣
Go on. Get drunk. - Rumi🍷⁣

This past Wednesday, I had the pleasure of hosting the 2020 launch event for @thefoundersfund

When I was asked to be a part of Canada’s first online accelerator that ⁣
supported women-identifying entrepreneurs during every stage of their growth, I jumped at the chance. ⁣

Why? Because when I started my business @kinkycurlyyaki seven years ago, nothing like it existed. ⁣

In its inaugural year, I was a part of the selection committee for the over 200 applicants from across Canada and served as a mentor. ⁣

Created for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs, I was grateful for the opportunity to pay it forward as best as I can so that other women have access to opportunities and mentorship that wasn't readily available to me.⁣

The 2020 Founders Fund initiative is about investing in yourself — and paying it forward. When you become a member, the fee you pay goes toward the Founders Fund, a pool of money that’s awarded to a group of deserving entrepreneurs each year. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⁣
⁠That means that when you join us, you’re coming together with other members to create the opportunities for women-identifying entrepreneurs you want to see in the world. ⁣

We are on a mission to raise a quarter of a million dollars in funding (aka $250,000) and getting 2020 entrepreneurs to say yes to fund more companies and founders at every stage. ⁣

Tybee Island, Georgia

I’ve been overly thinking about my body lately. ⁣

Probably because last week we were preparing for a week at the beach with friends. ⁣

I had a lot of thoughts of comparing the way I looked to the way everyone else that would be there. ⁣

Picking a part every piece of me. ⁣

It’s hard to escape that hole once you dig yourself deep enough into it. ⁣

But then I just remember being on the beach and thinking, I don’t want to miss out on these moments because I’m worrying about what I look like. Seeing my son so full of joy experiencing the beach for the first time. I took my coverup off, plopped right down in the sand with him to experience all the joy he wanted me to share with him. ⁣

It’s so easy to compare. I just had a complete mindset shift. Yes, my body does look different than those closest to me - but that isn’t a bad thing. Accepting that I don’t look like those around me or even strangers. Realizing that is OKAY. ⁣

My body is my body. It was made for me to experience life through myself, not trying to be somebody else. I want to stop comparing what I look like to those around me and accept me for me. That I am good enough, my body is beautiful, and I don’t want it to look like anyone else’s. ⁣

When @pinkdesert #gifted me this swimsuit, I was so excited but then immediately was filled with fear. Realizing I would need to be vulnerable and post something I’m not used to doing. So thoughts of making my makeup right, making my hair look put together, and the perfect location for the picture. So maybe people would focus on that instead of my body in the bathing suit.⁣

But then as my mindset shifted, I thought no way! I’m doing this just how I am with my son at the beach. My hair not done, makeup off, and showing off this swimsuit in MY body. ⁣

This swimsuit definitely makes me feel like I can celebrate me and my body! I know everyone is talking about fall but all of us in the south know we will be swimming till November 😂 Use MAMA15 for 15% off all of their swimwear 😍⁣

3 months post miscarriage and 3 years postpartum and I’m feeling pretty good.

Strong in my body.
Emotionally resilient.
Handling a toddler.

I shared about my miscarriage a couple months back mostly to normalize it and to share a piece of my own journey in motherhood.

Having a miscarriage was emotional but also felt like it took my body away from me for 3 months and brought me back to similar feelings I had postpartum.

To feel normal. To feel like myself. To be in more control.

But control really is just an illusion. Control with life or even trying to control every aspect of our eating and body.

One thing I always come back to is bodies are always changing. Life is always changing.

We are aging every day.

We have babies and lose the weight or keep some of it.

We go through phases where fitness drops off and strength levels change.

Hard life stuff happens.

The truth is we don’t have control of some things only how we respond to them.

And it doesn’t mean we can’t grieve or be frustrated or sad but in how we keeping showing up each day, the best we can, sometimes our best being strikingly different from one day to the other.

Here’s to all of you who keep showing up, being brave, learning and growing through it all.

When you let go of trying to control how things turn out you can start to *trust* that you WILL be able to handle whatever comes your way.

Sometimes I think when I see the articles about how Mothers should talk about their bodies in front of their daughters. Unintentionally it was like it would give me a cop out for the way I talked about my body because I have a son. That I don’t have to worry about that.⁣

I caught myself in the middle of that thought process the other day and tried to dive into why that is the wrong mindset. ⁣

Just because I have a son, doesn’t mean he doesn’t need to hear positive body talk as much as if I had a daughter. ⁣

If my son hears me saying that my wide hips are a problem or referring to my stomach as a ‘pudge’. That my arms are huge or my breasts are small. ⁣

What does that say to him?⁣

Does it tell him that the woman he should be looking for must not have any of that? That she needs to be a certain shape and size to be right for him. ⁣

Does it teach him if someone is deemed as ‘skinny’ by society’s standards that it’s the only right way? ⁣

He needs to see firsthand that beauty doesn’t have set standards. There’s no one size fits all. ⁣

And that starts with me.⁣

Check out my blog where I write a little more about how I want to communicate what this looks like in my life. (link in bio)⁣

If you have a son, have you ever dismissed this thought too? What ways do you want to help your child not believe in society's standards of beauty?

Marriage is definitely not for the faint of heart. It’s challenging, it’s hard work, and takes a lot of selflessness. ⁣

It means putting down your pride, putting yourself second sometimes, and pushing each other to grow.⁣

Oh, how we’ve grown the past five years. We’ve been through trials and we’ve been through so many celebrations. ⁣

The thing that has made our marriage thrive is COMMUNICATION. Constant check-ins with each other and being vulnerable about our emotions. Sometimes you really don’t want to, it’s easier to hide. But I am so grateful to have a man that I can express every emotion I experience and still loves me so deeply. ⁣

Here’s to another 555 years of growing, pushing each other, being vulnerable, and loving each other deeply. 💕⁣

#ad My hair has never felt so refreshed, I kid you not! I am completely sold on @obliphica , and they have options for fine hair like mine or thick/coarse hair too!
.
I’ve been using Seaberry hair care for about 3 weeks now, and I made sure to do that before sharing it with you. I can honestly say my hair feels more hydrated and softer than ever!

There is so much pressure in parenting. Whether it’s what your baby is eating to how much screen time they get to what milestones they’ve reached. It puts so much pressure on ourselves as moms which in turn I noticed can make me start to put pressure on my son. ⁣

I saw this shirt a couple months back and it was the reminder that I needed. Ultimately I want my husband and I to raise our son to be kind, passionate, and to want to change this world. The world is so broken, my hope is that he would want to be a light in the dark and feel motivated to change the world around us.⁣

That’s what is most important. Not if he watches too much Mickey Mouse or if he eats the occasional Mac n cheese for dinner.⁣

It’s hard to remember that because the pressures around us are real. We are constantly being told as moms to be better. Feeling guilty for not choosing a certain way to do things. ⁣

Take a step back from all that pressure and remember what is most important for your child to learn from you. To be kind, to love others, and to change this world by doing so.
