After 7 months of jeep life, I think it’s safe to say that she’s broke in! ⠀ ⠀ We stuffed her to the brim with people and camping gear one day, then got her topless and covered the interior with dirt the next.
As we climbed those narrow mountain two tracks right along with the ATV’s and the UTV’s, the words “I’m so happy we bought this” were repeated countless times. I already can’t wait to add another layer of dust next weekend. 👏🏻
Do you have a favorite place to escape to?
I added some photos from our adventures below, but I always post a TON on my IG stories, so make sure to follow there!
If you wouldn’t say it to your daughter, don’t say it to yourself. 𝘙𝘦𝘢𝘥 𝘪𝘵 𝘢𝘨𝘢𝘪𝘯. Now remember that the sweet little girl who makes your world turn is looking to you to show her what self love is. How can we expect them to love themselves if we don’t show them how?
Replace your negatives with positives. Let her know that their worth is not determined by a pant size. Be proud of YOUR body so she knows to be proud of hers. 𝘚𝘩𝘦 𝘪𝘴 𝘭𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘯𝘪𝘯𝘨. 𝘚𝘩𝘦 𝘪𝘴 𝘸𝘢𝘵𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨. 𝘚𝘩𝘰𝘸 𝘶𝘱 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘈𝘕𝘋 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧. 🧡
Every time I open my Instagram or Facebook I am greeted with moms who seemingly look like they have it all together. Art projects, perfect schedules, and at home work outs fill up my feed.
Most of me is thinking “Yay you! Get it girl!”, but there is that part of me who gets sucked into feeling less than. Cue the mom guilt.
Navigating 2020 hasn’t been easy for me. I’ve been riding a roller coaster of emotions- for every few “I got this” days, I have a “NO you don’t” day.
Some days everything works. The house gets cleaned, the schedule is followed, the fights are minimal, and we might even squeeze in a fun activity. But those days of simply surviving are VERY real too and that’s okay.
If you’re feeling less than, remember that those kids don’t care if you are perfect. You might not be thriving, but you showed up and that’s what matters.
