Sleeping is a good thing

I hate the quote “success never sleeps” cuz that implies that you if you get a good nights sleep you aren’t going to be successful.

It’s bullshit I know a ton of successful people that make sure they rest so there mind is in the right state to work.

Sleeping is healthy you need it to stay sane.

Taking care of your mental health is so important. Sleeping is a good thing.

Being a mom to a 7 month old doesn’t help me get as much sleep as i would like but i try to make sure i get as much sleep as i can.

If I’m sleep deprived i can’t be a good mom or person in general.

You can make time to sleep & be a successful person.

Don’t believe the hype.

Are you someone that gets enough sleep?

The stress stuggle is real

I was raised in the 90s so I grew up listening & loving music from boy bands like *NSYNC & Backstreet Boys, girl bands like the spice girls & pop stars like Britney Spears.

When I watched Britney have a meltdown in 2007 i couldn’t relate. Then I grew up & had tons of responsibilities including raising a tiny human who acts just like me & I said to myself “now i get where Britney’s coming from.”

Life is so much of an emotional rollercoaster. There’s really no happy medium. I either have really good days or really bad days lately. This causes me to stress the fuck out.

I’m hoping for an ok day soon. I could really go for an ok day. Not bad but not great.

I need to figure out what I need to do to get through the stressful days cuz i haven’t figured it out yet & I’m really trying to avoid a 2007 Britney meltdown.

I’ll get through it I always do.

Is your stress level high lately?

I forget my passwords way too much

I’m the person that has a different password for every site & then I forget which one I used for each site.

I know what you’re thinking; why don’t you just use the same password for every site?

I tried to do that however every site has different requirements for the passwords.

It’s insane & I’m going to need the internet to do better & make my life easier.

Thank God for the remember me option on some sites.

Does anyone else have this problem?

Summer is great but only for a little bit

I love hot weather but I’m ok with it only being for a few months. I need seasons in my life to feel normal.

When we moved to Florida for a few years i thought i would love not having cold weather in my life but i hates that it felt hot & humid all year round.

I love fall & spring even though as the years go on those seasons get shorter & shorter.

Summer is much better than winter but I like it for about 2-3 months then I need fall.

Are you a summer person?

Overpacking & procrastinating

Am i the only one who waits until the last second to pack & then overpacks for vacations?

We’re going on a family vacation starting tomorrow for just a week & i swear i packed enough for 3 months. Thank god we’re driving cuz i would have never been able to get all these suitcases on the plane.

Now that i have to pack for my daughter I’m doing the same thing. I packed even more for her than myself.

I don’t know if it’s because I wait until the last possible moment to pack & I’m rushing to get it done or I think we’re going to get stranded somewhere for 6 months & i need enough clothes just in case.

Either way it drives my husband crazy & I’m really starting to realize i have a problem. I just don’t know how to stop.

Do you overpack when traveling?

Coffee to wine all day, every day

I rely on two things to get me through the day; coffee & wine.

Coffee in the morning to wake me up & start the day.

Wine at night to handle the stress of the day & to help me sleep.

It doesn’t take a lot to keep me happy & functional.

Life is hard, days can be long & you need to find vices that will help you get through it.

What are two things you rely on to help you get through the day?

Boundaries are neccessary for your sanity

You can be kind, love someone & support them but you can’t say yes to every single request.

Learning to say no without apologizing or making an excuse is so hard for me to this day but as I work on it, it’s so necessary for my sanity.

You don’t have to go to every party or event to still love & support people.

If someone makes you feel bad for going to the 27 events or parties that they are having & then for missing the next 1 or 2 then they aren’t people you want in your life.

Boundaries are healthy & you’re not a bad person for saying no & doing what’s best for you.

Do you struggle with boundaries?
