Accepting Anger (Fear) and Resentment… #RealTalk

In my journey of recovery from codependency, I have taken up writing my thoughts and feelings down, as is usually suggested in any recovery program. It’s amazing to step outside of that for a few moments and look back on previous weeks or months to see where I was at any given moment in time. It’s such an imperfect journey.

I recently mentioned that I don’t really struggle with mom guilt. At all. However, that doesn’t mean that I am immune to making mistakes. And on Tuesday, I felt like I made a big mistake.

Surviving Codependency… #RealTalk

Before I jump in- yes, I began this post featuring a photo of me happily zenned out at the Canyon Ranch Spa in Las Vegas.

This Is Us. #RealTalk #Maternity&Motherhood

This is SO us. One kid crying, another uninterested, mom forgetting basic things. I think it’s just as important to share these real moments (and hey- they make for the best memories, right?) as it is the ones where everyone happens to be looking at the camera and smiling.
