For Real

You guys know how important it is for me to share the real of my life here. To not put on any fronts and speak from my heart. Lately, I feel I have been heavy, trudging through truth, joy and life. Nothing wrong with that, just an observation. Ya know the whole not judging kick I am on.

Anyways,  in keeping with the honest truth of Monica's Keeping it Real, I must say I feel light as air this week. Yep. I ain't gonna lie, I got no yins to my yangs this week. What?! I know! Well, there are always downs to ups, its just that I think I was able to shake all the junk so well, I don't even remember it. And I don't think it would be very productive to sit and force myself to think of some downs, so I won't. 

How did I do it? Honestly I don't really know. The big thing I did was to remove the emotion during a situation. I looked at each difficult moment from an objective point-of-view. How was it physically making me feel, deciding if it was big enough to get "upset" about, was it fear talking. I did not get swept away by how I thought I was feeling. This really helped me to stay present, connected with my heart and not my ego. Will I be able to keep this up? Wait, that's my ego asking that. All I can honestly tell you is that in this moment I am ok, and as for the next moment, I am not there yet *wink*

So after shaking off the hard here's what stuck:
Being the Mama They deserve
The Badger Graduating from Kindergarten
Making/Taking Me Time
Being Present
A late night deer moment reminding me 
Making Plans
Feeling secure in my path
Little Bird's talking 
Loving strokes from little hands
A child's answered prayer
Garden Kale
My mama finally retiring, again 
shakin it 

I really hope you have an amazing weekend. Hope your ups blow your downs out of the friggin water!!

Oh and this for fun :)

  1. Love that last sentence! Hope your ups blow your downs out of the friggin water" :) :) :) I needed that! I had a lot of ups this week but I'm fighting to hang on the them with all the sickness in the house. So glad you had a wonderful week! You inspire me with every post!

    1. I am so sorry you guys were sick. My Owl had Hand Foot and Mouth twice. The first time when he was about 8 months and it was so awful. So painful! Remember how it was before sick and know it will be that way again... Thinking of you dear Ko and your little men.

    giggling at mama finally retiring....again. :)

  6. Beautiful words. It's so inspiring to 'meet' people who work so hard at enriching their lives, and the lives of those around them. I had a really hard time after the birth of my little girl and living in the moment was the only way I got through it.
    You have a beautiful family!
