Sadness is a heavy burden to carry..

My sadness has been carried with me for many a year. Every year it seems to wallow in my heart, tears are hard to control as they run down my curvy face. My source of sadness probably stems from many years of being physically and emotionally abused by my parents, it was a cycle I could never escape, it grew on me, it was something I craved and still crave. I’m attracted to emotional abusers, I can’t seem to escape the vicious cycle I’m in. It’s tiring to cry so much, one would’ve thought that one only has so many tears, though 30 odd years proved the contrary. I’m lost hear alit like Alice in Wonderland, going down the spiral of a rabbit hole.

I’ve never understood why people cut their own cords, but it’s easy to understand now. The pain and heartache that sadness brings cuts like a sharp knife, leaving the scar to bleed out, the only way to stop that bleeding is to take your own life.

People that are left behind always say that it’s selfish for someone to take their own life and yes in many ways it rings true especially if you leave loved ones behind. But I understand that sadness, I can relate to why people do it. Sadness is a heavy burden to carry for the rest of your life.

Mom’s the word..

Moms wear many titles and tackle a slew of responsibilities. It starts from you doing everything from dressing and feeding your kids to picking them up from school, helping with homework and tackle the sports fields. Then there’s the household to run and maintain.

During the midst of all these crazy moments, there’s very little time for you, even though selfcare is essential for our well being.

As mother’s we somehow take on a multitude of tasks whilst putting our needs on hold and sometimes we loose ourselves or our own identities.

While I’m sure many mother’s give up much more than their identities for their families it’s very important for mothers to also take care of themselves.

I feel that sometimes I am so focused on everyone else that when I look into the mirror I don’t recognise myself anymore. Have you ever felt this way?

Women are warriors so it’s ok for us to take some time for ourselves to ensure health minds, healthy bodies, healthy living..

Mom of teenager..

Being a mom of a teenage son comes with the same challenges, my parents warned me about when I was my son’s age.

I remember how I was warned that one day my kids will give me the same hassles as I gave them.

It seems the joke was on me back then, because it feels like I’m getting the everything in double doses. Whilst my son doesn’t really get up to mischievous things like I did, he tends to have these teen moods that lasts longer, than what feels like forever.

My own memories of my childhood especially my teens are very vague, so it’s rather difficult to remember how moody I was.

It’s like these moods appeared from nowhere. These moods turns to anger and disrespectful behaviour which feels like I’m the one being punished.

My first reaction as per usual is to start a shouting match and ends up in giving my son a hiding. I’ve come to learn that this form of punishment simply doesn’t help.

The best punishment I’ve found is to take away his phone and other privileges like wifi and pc games and everything technology. It works wonders and it also happens to be a mood enhancer..

Sometimes all they need is a breath of fresh air..

Watermelon

There is something to be said about watermelons it’s full of Vitamins such as Vitamin A, B6 and C, watermelon is also packed with lycopene and amino acids, all combining to contribute towards healthy skin, aiding the immune system, and benefitting from antioxidants. Arginine (an amino acid) is essential in our bodies and helps with blood circulation in the scalp. #fruitsalads #fortheloveoffruit #healthyfood #naturesfood #organic

The Good Wife

As a wife you learn to grow as a person both mentally and intellectually. They patients is a virtue #truestory and it is, it’s a craft that you learn in order to tolerate the small imperfections that stems from your husband. I’ve learned that I can show interest and no interest at the same time some may say it’s called #creativity, I’ve learned that sometimes the best answer is yes, I agree with you #winkwink, I’ve learned that tolerance is key #familymatters, I’ve learned that “the big bang” wasn’t simply a theory #agreetodisagree, I’ve learned about the architecture of pyramids and the conspiracy that surrounds it #mightbetrue. I’ve learned more about history from one person than a lifetime of schooling and I’m daily educated on our solar system. I’ve learned that sometime you have to humour your husband because he believes aliens are freaking real #yeahidontthinkso…..but he is also a simple kind of man and animal lover #fortheloveofanimals

Purdy my German Shepherd

We found each other by chance..

What a lovely personality she has, she has warmed our hearts and feeds our souls.

It wasn’t long after our beloved Sandy (also a German shepherd) passed away that we found Purdy.

Stuck in a tiny cage at a pet shop with millions of kids screaming “yeah I might be exaggerating a bit” but that’s how it felt. She was crying bitterly and couldn’t move in that small cage.

I knew the minute my husband and so took her out of that cage she was coming home with us. It wasn’t a difficult desicion really however she cost more than a penny.

My heart broke firstly because that cage is so damn small and you could see the panic in her eyes. So we took her.

She is still a very anxious girl I think the trauma she endured was just to overwhelming.

Love thy animal..
