.. CONVINCED THEY WILL BE BETTER OFF WITHOUT ME
Not feeling like you are good enough can make you want to just stop whatever your doing. For me.. even stop raising my kid. I figured I was CRAP and I was ruining her life. I'm a woman, I'm supposed to be good that this RIGHT? Everyone thinks I'm fine. I SHOULD BE FINE RIGHT? The problem is when everyone else thinks you are ok you then feel like your in a prison of pretence and becasue you are can't be honest YOU CAN'T GET OUT.Here is the thing, it takes a village to raise a kid, but the only way the village can help you is if they know what you need. #motherhood #beingamum #beingaparent #mumof2 #motivationmonday #mondaymotivation #raisingkids #parenthood #parentingtips #mumlife #parenting
Anyone else winging Monday?
I figure just get it all done so I can try and have 5 minutes to myself at some point in the week.
It's midday and I've already left 2 cups of tea to go cold!
I hope you're smashing today so far 👊 School homework to do tonight, get that out of the way too! 😉
PS. I love in my @selfishmother
jumper. It's super snuggly especially when on a wet soggy school run!

October 15th is National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day. ellie mom, Sarah Nelson, is sharing her story of loss, love and finding joy again.
“Do you see what I see?” The tech asked. “Are there....two?” I asked, uncertain.
TWINS. We were shocked but overjoyed. Identical twin baby boys would complete our family. But this isn’t a story with the happy ending and family photos of twins sleeping, swaddled and snuggled together. We never got those photos or those moments.
Our story is one of anxiety when we were told the risks of my pregnancy.
Of fear when we were told our boys would have to be delivered 3 months early to give them a chance at surviving.
Of overwhelming sadness as we held our first born son for the first and last time in the same day.
This is also a story of hope when we first saw his twin brother, in his NICU isolette that night.
A story of ups and downs as we watched him fight for his life over the next several weeks while worrying we might lose him too. I felt numb for weeks, not wanting to feel too much just in case.
Losing one twin is uniquely devastating and it can feel as though you don’t fit into any group of grievers. We got to bring a baby home. Our arms weren’t left completely empty. But each time we watch our survivor hit a milestone we’re reminded of what our angel should be doing at the same time. No matter how many times someone says, “At least you still have one,” the grief of losing our baby can’t be masked.
The truth is, this is also a story of envy as I see multiple close friends and family with healthy twins. Envy is the one emotion I can’t shake no matter how hard I try.
Through all the struggles, this is also a story of joy. Joy watching my son grow into a healthy, happy, silly little boy as he plays with his older sister and now younger sister.
Our family is complete, even though a piece of it is hidden in our hearts. 💙
My absolute favorite thing about fall is pumpkins and going to the pumpkin patch! The weather has finally started to cool down some in North Carolina so we even had perfect pumpkin patch weather this past weekend 🙌🏼🎃
What is your families favorite fall activity??
These journals are perfect to document all your baby's firsts.... trust me, I wish my parents had recorded my firsts... Order them via the link in the BIO.

... Smiley Smiley baby Jordan bear...that's me!!!
TWENTY EIGHT WEEKS OLD. You started the week off a grumpy little girl. Fighting naps, refusing milk, and just generally fussy. Today however you’re finally back to your normal self. We even changed to the large sized bottle teats and you’re now finishing a 180ml bottle of milk in just 4 minutes! You also had your first Baby Led Weaning experience and tried out avocado all on your own. You seemed to like it! Let’s hope the rest of the week it just as good as today! We love you!
Pure happiness 💛🍂 Finns inget bättre än att se de här två tillsammans. Lou är lyckligt lottad som har en pappa som skulle göra vad som helst för henne. ✨
Just a reminder.. you are MOM in a MILLION 🌠

Årets bästa bilder, pappalivet! 🤣🤮💛
Kelihatannya memang sepele, tetapi di zaman yang serba sibuk dan macet ini, kegiatan makan bersama nyaris terlewatkan. Padahal ada banyak mamfaat yang bisa diperoleh dari makan bersama keluarga lho, Moms 😊
Baik sarapan maupun makan malam, nampaknya harus segera dipertimbangkan lagi dan dilakukan. Karena kegiatan sederhana ini ternyata bisa membantu membentuk kepribadian anak dengan lebih baik. Selengkapnya cek image diatas ya, Moms 👍
Seberapa sering Moms dan keluarga makan bersama? Boleh share ceritanya, yaa 😉

Good Reads for Leaders! #goodreads
The Dichotomy of Leadership by Jocko Willink @jockowillink
& Leif Babin @realleifbabin
📖 My Book Report: Chapter 2 “Own It All, But Empower Others” by Jocko Willink | At Highland Park Life Time, our Team Leaders are reading the 2nd book by them lead by my GM Earl Shutt @earlshutt
and we discuss every week in our Leadership Meeting! @lifetimehighlandpark
It’s our leadership #bookclub
! The Extreme Ownership is most effective when the top leaders let the middle level leadership team own their ownership, so they will not have to wait for the top leaders to make some important decisions. Giving them the ownership will increase their initiatives, motivations and productivity through their proactive researches and communications among the team leaders to come up with the best solutions with their expertise. Simply put; two heads are better than one. As a effective leader, s/he should not become the Easy Button, which means that their subordinates leaders will expect and depend on their leaders to come up with all solutions. That will decrease their initiative, motivation to grow and productivity. ———————————————-
I can use theses strategies to sharpen my leadership skills and parenting skills! I believe the dichotomy of keeping the balance and harmony among disciplining, giving love and tough love, trusting and empowering my team will lead them to become the best leaders! After all, the birds in the air 🦅 even know that once they grow up, they must be able to fly alone because their mom kicks their butts off from the cliff to fly without fear of the heights and fear of the enemies! So why not us, right? I love my team so much, so I need to learn the better balance! I can do it! 💪❤️ ———————————————- #extremeownership #ltemployee #dichotomyofleadership #dichotomy #leadership #leadershipquotes #leadershipdevelopment #leadershipcoach #leadershipskills #leadershipcoach #bookstagram #leadershipconsulting #coach #leader #trust #theeasybutton #solution #problemsolving #toughlove #parenting #parenthood #training #leadershiptraining #entrepreneur #ltemployee
