Girls. From day one, we get sucked in. Disney princesses, Barbie, makeup, fashion, magazines, fairy tales etc…. All of them have one thing in common- Beauty. Being beautiful gets you the prince, makes you wealthy, and gives you power. At least that’s the message we receive as young little girls. Now, don’t get me wrong,… Read More Icing on the cake
“Oh for goodness sakes!” This has become my go to phrase of frustration since my children have become observant little elementary schoolers. I don’t know why I keep saying it- it just comes out. But from where?? Where does this come from?? I was thinking about this earlier today…. A lot of expressions we use,… Read More Why do we say these things???
Tiny star A part of me A moment one Barely be Surrounded by Established tree Questioning The final “see” Goodbyes unsaid Barely hello I would have said You’re loved, ya know? Until the time When breath slows down I’ll hold my heart Up to the sound You’ll know it’s me I’ll never slow I wish… Read More Tiny star
Ugh. I can’t think of any other way to start this post. If you have ADHD you most likely understand from the title alone…. We break stuff. A lot. Physically. Emotionally. Mentally. That stupid bull; it never sits still. There’s always something to break. There’s always something to question, challenge, move on from… Once one… Read More ADHD: the “bull” in the China shop
Bare with me. You’re probably reading this title thinking, “what the hell is she talking about?

Speaking as someone who knows all too well the insecurity,… Read More Anxiety: the underdog in the award show of life. (Wait, what?!)
TRIGGER ALERT~~~ Panic attacks, anxiety. This is a personal account of my struggles. There’s air. There’s air all around us. It should be so simple. As humans, we breathe. It’s instinct. If there is nothing physically preventing us from breathing, it just happens naturally, right? You breathe in, and you breathe out. In… and…out…… Read More I’m To the the person holding their breath…
Grocery stores. I’m the worst at planning meals. Probably because the whole “planning” part bores me to tears. I usually wing it when I head to the store. I have my dry erase board on the fridge filled with things I randomly think we need. Blah blah blah. Anyway. The whole topic of grocery shopping… Read More A comparison of shopping carts with the “Quinoa folks”
Like what I did there? Two peas in a pod they are. When I can’t sit still, anxiety steps in. It tells me to stop. It tells me if I don’t sit still my world will come crashing down. It nags ever so efficiently, that if I don’t continue to analyze every single aspect of… Read More “Oh wow, that ADHD really compliments your anxiety.”
Hello readers!! Man, it’s been way too long. I’m sorry I haven’t updated this blog recently. It’s kind of been one of those things… I got REALLY pumped about creating a blog at first, but then the honeymoon phase wore off. That’s not to say that I want this blog to die. I love my… Read More Procrastinating in plain sight: How I made it 30 years with ADHD and didn’t know it.
I am the biggest hypocrite when it comes to Facebook. I’m on it all the time. I have no idea why. It’s a time sucker upper and a bad habit. At most, it’s a distraction from boredom when I actually shouldn’t be bored because there’s things I need to be doing. Make sense? What’s… Read More Newsfeed bs, memes, and things I don’t want to buy….
