Friday Feels: Vol 3


Happy Friday! We made it!  Time to share all the things. Ya know from this week? Let me jump right in. So much to share.

1. Back to work

I had to go back to work this week. Not cool! I was not mentally ready to be back to work on so little sleep with my little screaming baby in the background. In case you didn't know, I work from home. I dont get to go back into the world while little bloob goes off to daycare.

Nope. I get to pray to the man above all morning that he doesn't scream in the middle of a phone call. I get to stress eat that he won't be cranky when I get up every morning.

Yes, I know it sounds like a dream not to have to send little man to daycare while I work, but the reality is, my job is phone heavy. I can't have my 8 week old screaming in the background because he's hungry or needs a diaper change.

I had to hire a sitter for the afternoons to keep him fed, changed, and happy. Im grateful he's in the house with me all day, but man does it make for a stressful day.

Have mercy on this mamma!

2. 100 Dreams Project - 11-20


Today I am sharing dreams 11- 20 from my 100 Dreams Project.  Take a look at my first 10 dreams to keep up with the project! You can also follow along and make your own list! It is very interesting to see what comes up!

11. Attend a fancy gala
12. Take a train trip on all 7 continents
13. Celebrate New Years Eve (my birthday) in every time zone (Think all the big cities)
14. Take a solo trip to a place I have never been for at least a week.
15. Run a 5K
16. See the northern light in Iceland
17. Make an appointment at a famous salon with no plan. Be surprised with new hair
18. Drive the Pacific Coast Highway (I have done this as a small child, want to do it as an adult)
19. Buy my first home with my husband
20. Write a book

3. FabFitFun



I got my first FabFitFun box! I was so excited when this box showed up at my door. It was so bright and cheery. I needed that pick me up after a dreary week or rain and clouds. I plan to do a review of the box for next week. Stay tuned for that.

4. Mental Health

Another life gone too soon. By now you have probably heard that Kate Spade took her own life. After I wrote this up, I was sad to learn that we have also lost Anthony Bourdain. This is such an unfortunate situation. It adds to the ever growing list of precious lives taken due to depression. As someone who suffers from depression, I know how hard it can be to get the help you need when you are at your worst.

It is not an easy thing to navigate in the world we live in today. No one wants to come out and admit they are depressed. I had a hard time this week admitting to my doctor at my postpartum appointment that I have had some low moments since giving birth. We are scared of being judged.

Please know that no matter what tricks your depression plays on you, there is always help available. You are worth it.

Call the suicide hotline if you need someone to talk to. Please. The life you save could be your own.

5. June Goals and Mantras

My mantra for June is:

"Whatever it takes."

Goals

  • Read one book. Yes its been rough to sit down and get through a book. 1 would be a win. 
  • Get out of the house at least once a week by myself. 
  • Self care: Get a massage.
That's about it. What's your June looking like?

6. Bonus! I found my first painted rock out and about and I actually know the person who painted it. So cool!



Happy Weekend!
