No Regrets

No Regrets

This week would have been my 15 year anniversary. This week, my Ex re-marries. To say that there are a lot of mixed emotions would be an understatement.

Do no Harm, Take No Sh*$

As much as I am a Mindful Mama. I am not the type of person to just sit, cross-legged, eyes closed and “Ommmm” it all better. I found this little Mantra on Pinterest months ago and it stuck. I am Mindful of others and their needs vs. my needs. However, I have come to learn over these…
