GRWM…with a twist!

*** I wish I could say that my alarm on my phone wakes me up, but my phone alarm has been replaced…by my daughter who loudly wakes up between 5am and 5:30am. She sometimes wakes and immediately starts chatting away or sometimes she wakes up with a loud cry, just to let us know that she is present…as if we could forget. Funnily enough when she is still sleeping at 6am, I start checking her to see if she is ok, and making sure she is breathing! Oh the weird emotions! Once she is up,…

When it gets to 11pm, I am practically in my bed, snoring away. I think about those days when I was 21 when I could stay up to 3 am and still get to work at 8:30am and would still be coherent and smiling. Now, if I lost my sanity and decided to stay past 1am, I…

When you are having a crappy day…

I am going to talk about what to do when you are having a crappy day, week, month, or a period in your life. Recently, I have been hit with what seems like a barrage of disappointments which have left a massive dent in my positivity and my faith. It is annoying isn’t it, when everything should be going well but it isn’t.
