Honestly Ma’am

Today’s post is a little different. As I embark on this new journey as a doctoral student, I am excited to where it ends: Doctor of Education degree. I am working and enrolled in graduated school, pursuing my Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership with emphasis in K-12 education. At the same time, I just recently experienced the most honest conversation with a loved one. It really pained me to say the truth to them. However, I was emotionally exhausted. I believe I have held in my truth for so long that my emotions have been shut down.

I can not believe I waited so long to finally say, finally what my TRUTH WAS!! I poured out my feelings and my only response from this family member was, “Thanks for your honesty.” When someone consistently hurts your feelings, and you pour out your heart, and this is their response, it’s not you (that has the problem), it’s them. I know know that I am not the crazy person. I am growing and trying to better myself as an adult. I wish everyone will see their path to an healthy adulting journey.

On the other side, I am finishing the first class in my doctoral journey and I am excited and scared at the same time. Never fear! The journey Ma’am is all worth it. Have you ever experienced a tough conversation? How did you handle it?

WELLNESS WEDNESDAY BLOG 2/21/18

Screen Shot 2018-02-11 at 12.59.15 PMI am in the 3rd day of the week after a long Mardi Gras week off and two days trying to get over a viral infection. I do not feel as if I had enough time to get better. Between taking care of my son, who has autism and is under me 24/7, to the demands of being a wife and house cleaner, I am exhausted. I am investing the time into taking naps when I get off of work, maintaining my blog and just trying to keep my head on straight. I was late for work this week, two days in a row 😦

Normally, I have my stuff together, but the last few weeks have been a little rough. So, what do I do?

1. Pray for release of the pressure.
2. Communicate my needs to my spouse.
3. Rely on him more to navigate the chores, I am too exhausted to take up.
4. Keep my son, Lambchop on his schedule, to relieve the pressure off of me.
5. Remind myself that it’s going to be ok.
6. Take naps daily.
7. Go to bed early.
8. Do not stress over things I cannot control.
9. Pray more.
10. Relax, Relate, Release.

Happy Wellness Wednesday,
XOXO

December 2017, when I dropped it (Tan Lines Highlighter from Jouer Cosmetics), and destroyed in my makeup bag. #saddayindeed 

So, you can tell that I am in need of at least a new highlighter from Jouer Cosmetics. Have you purchased from this brand? If so, what did you purchase. Make sure you visit their site. I am not sponsored by any brands, so this s me just giving you some perspective from a brand I love. 

Happy Shopping!!!

XOXO,

Day two of my viral infection, being a mommie, schools out for my son, Mardi Gras 2018 and other tidbits.

  • Happy Friday Loves,
  • We are gearing up for the weekend, Mardi Gras and getting over a viral infection. I am on day 2 of being home sick. This morning I am still in recovery mode from being ill. My son’s school is out today.
  • His school is celebrating Mardi Gras break a little early. I woke up around 8ish. Hubster was already gone to work. We have this routine that he leaves before our son and I because Lambchop (our son’s nickname), has Autism and separation anxiety. We tracked the anxiety triggers and are finding ways to work around it.
  • I am a special education teacher and this step (tracking behavior triggers),  is easy for me, 🙂
  • We are doing well with Lambchop thus far.
  • Breakfast: Pancakes, eggs, smoke sausage, milk, and juice. 
  • Lunch: Not sure what’s on the menu for that. 
  • Blog: I am always looking for ways to update the look and character of 4373fashionlane.com. 
  • Pinterest: I am working on being better at adding blog postings and tidbits on the site. I have claimed the site on Pinterest, finally!!! xx.
