Motherhood: The Great Undoing, The Greatest Gift
The best solution payday loans

“For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.” – Cynthia Occelli   Motherhood is one of the single most trying, stretching, breaking down of self things you will ever do. It is hard. Full of extremes and opposing emotions all at once. It is exhausting and exhilarating. It is joyous and painful. Exciting and annoying. Frustrating and inspiring. It teaches you about yourself on a level nothing else could. You find out what you are really made out of and what you lack....

I need to finish this thing I started. The “I need to get back to the real me” thing. The last four pounds. The more clean eating. But, many days I just don’t give a rat’s back end. Why? Because, I compare myself. Here’s how it plays out… Compare me to the average American and I eat like an Olympian. Compare me to my teenage self and I am far more fit. Compare me to most “I’ve had three kids” mamas and, currently, I look pretty darn good.  (Don’t worry, that ego goes right out the window here in a second). Then compare to those I really respect who are healthy and at their peak (in their late thirties and...

Today I am posting a blog from another page. It may seem like a bit of a cop out but, honestly, I think I needed this blog and you may too. You may not be a person of any faith but the words here are still true in so many ways.  Have faith. Motherhood is hard. Loving is hard. There are no promotions or pay raises.  And it can make you wrestle with your mind day in and day out. However, the life achievement you receive is undoubtably inexplicable. And your children really are your greatest work.   by Brooke McGlothlin  Motherhood is hard physical labor, sweaty work, manual labor of the most intense kind because it requires more than just body. Turns out it’s...

So, I am 99% sure I have Candida overgrowth. In hindsight, I am pretty sure I got it when I was pregnant with my third son and I have been self-medicating with diet to keep it under control for years ever sense. However, I really didn’t know that there was a name for what I had or that many people get it. And I didn’t realize that several other things I have been struggling with were all connected to the same thing. This information came as a relief. I mean, eliminate a lot of annoying things with one fail swoop. Done! “What is Candida?” you may be asking. Glad you want to know. Candida is a fungus. It grows in your gut. It’s not all...

This is a weird post for me to write. In it I will be very open about current body challenges which, warning, can be a bit gross.  However, if you have EVER had skin issues that won’t quit or persistent yeast infections please know you are in good company and I hope to reveal some helpful cures you may or may not have known. Since being pregnant with my third son about two and a half years ago, I have had chronic issues with yeast infections (I know, eww!), acne and itchy skin.  Now you would THINK I would have connected the dots at that point but, no. I chaulked it up to hormones and pregnancy. Then my son was born so I blamed adjusting hormone levels and...

I’m no spring chicken. I know this.  I also know that I’m no dummy. In fact, I’m pretty darn smart much of the time. When I’m not doing relatively mind-numbing chores or one of thirty of the same exact micro-actions which are now muscle-memoried into my daily life. But loving three little boys can take a lot of the “smarts” and redirect them into things none of us like to work on like patience, self-control, thoughtfulness, and joy in the moment. And that can feel harder than any essay I’ve ever had to write or any client relationship I’ve ever had to finesse. And, even knowing that the pay off is coming (someday?) and...
