Whatever nice, patient and kind part of me that survived the past week has officially left the building. You’ll be dealing with this queen for the remainder of the weekend. Enjoy. •
Good evening, introverts! I’ve had hard couple of days and want to share something very important with you all.📢 Hardships are natural part of life, and there’s no need to be ashamed of imperfections, as perfect is possible only in nature.🌱 That’s why I’m here to post pictures about my simple life and things I find joy in - because life is simple, we make it complicated in our minds.
If only you could stop and “smell the roses”, you’d see that it’s ok if you “failed” today and maybe didn’t perform your best. Sometimes negative thoughts cross our minds and our today’s society set an agenda for us that in order to feel happy we should always BE happy, we should always be positive and fight our feelings of sadness.😓 Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for positivity but it’s important to recognize when you don’t feel your best and just let it be. Imperfections are a part of human nature, real growth is possible only through self-acceptance and love.
I’m not suggesting to sink in your misery, but I highly recommend to let yourself grow through darkness.💕 #pillowsandtrees#mentalhealth#inspiration#motivation#nature#trees#photography#warmcolours#growth#motivation#anxiety#depression#mood#reallife
Eu demorei até entender que meu amor pelos dois não seria igual.
Um dia me falaram que eu demonstrava mais amor à um deles, aquilo veio como uma faca que vai entrando bem devagar, tocando no meu ponto fraco, como alguém poderia verbalizar algo tão íntimo? Como alguém se atreve à calcular meus sentimentos?
E hoje eu posso dizer, que bom que aprendi a amá-los de formas diferentes, nem menos, nem mais, mas diferente, eles não são iguais, as necessidades, a personalidade, as fases são diferentes, logo, amar também será diferente, a intensidade pode ser a mesma, mas através do meu comportamento demonstro formas diferentes de amar.
A nossa relação, intimidade, afinidade com nossos filhos aumenta a cada dia, é através das nossas entregas e das respostas deles à essas entregas que vamos criando mais e mais vínculo, nosso amor está presente em todos os momentos de múltiplas formas, mesmo se você está chamando atenção de um enquanto abraça o outro, você está amando os dois e por termos a consciência de que cada um é um ser diferente e exige olhares diferentes, amar de igual para igual talvez seja irresponsabilidade ou irrelevante.
Olhar para o outro de forma única e amá-lo de maneiras diferentes é a mais linda forma de demostrar o verdadeiro amor.
Mas o palpitar do coração, o sorriso retribuído à um ação, a saudade do que passou, o orgulho das conquistas são tão mas tão iguais que nem me atrevo a falar que são diferentes. 💬 @maternidadenapele

Sua interação é muito importante!
You don’t have an extra $100?
If you don't have $100 to start a little side gig....then that’s exactly why we need to have a conversation.... It’s not judgement.
I've been there.
I didn’t think I had the money.
I didn’t have the time.
And honestly, I didn’t have the desire.
The last thing I thought I could do was add to my plate.
I was busy being a homeschooling mom with 4 kids 5 and under when I started.
Now 5 kids 8 and under (...including a baby who still gets up at least 3 times a night😳) I never saw myself as a “business owner”. And I sure as heck wasn’t qualified!
But, the potential of this opportunity was placed on my heart.
And guess what, I doubted it. 🤦🏼♀️
I doubted the laughs, the judgment, the embarrassment to do something different...something that had a stigma with it!
The what if’s....what if I can’t?
What if it doesn’t work?
What if I fail?
What if I do succeed and screw it up??
There were a lot of what if’s........ But this......this opportunity can be the reason that your entire financial path changes!
It can be your financial cushion.
It can be your retirement.
It can give you freedom.
Freedom in time with your family and your finances!
And this happens to be one of the MOST rewarding things I have ever done!!! ✨Great products + ✨an affordable opportunity + ✨the right company + ✨the right leadership +
✨a system that works = 💥SUCCESS!💥 In all the years of my life I never once thought I would end up doing something like this!!!! But God!!!!! What an answer to so many prayers!!!!! And this could very well be the answer to yours!!! If you have the tiniest thought that it might.....let’s chat!!😉 No better time than now!
This is life for me... I like the cute and organized pictures...but this is my everyday...a dirty home, lots of noise....mostly screaming...but lots of laughter too.
Sometimes I want to run away from it all, wish it away and fix it...but then I’m reminded that it is just a short season....or so everyone tells me 😉
I am no perfect mama...by any stretch of the imagination, I am just learning Day my day to accept my season, not as a sign of defeat or that it needs to be “fixed” but intentionally embrace it and work on me through it. 🥂 here’s to many, many, many more days of chaos, tears, laughter and memories...it’s a short season, no matter how long the days may seem...it all has purpose. #parenting#reallife#dirtyroom#doingtheir”homework” #playtime#justaseason#motherhood#realitycheck#embrace#whatmatters#daybyday#thehivewithmelissa
More of these sweet girls! 😍 I love seeing siblings in their rompers!
Excuse Me miss joker i am doctor harleen quinzel...do you have time to go over these questions?....Hahahahahahahaha im sorry of course you got time you're in arkham asylum we have nothing but time puddin! Silly me! Hahahahahahahah...anyways back the the question...😌did you know you sold my soul when i looked into your eyes👀👄🃏♦♦♦
As our walk through the trails was coming to an end I asked my husband to take a picture of me and the boys. Next thing you know Eliyah is crying and I’m chasing Aiden preventing him from getting into a puddle of mud that resulted into a tantrum and having to carry Aiden to the other side of the park. The multi tasking I can do now a days amazes me lol. But when I had finally put my older son down Immediately the Lord began to minister to me saying it is in these moments that I want you to rejoice and to count it all joy no matter how crazy it looks in the moment. I’m not sure if I will be able to do that every single time one of them trips lol but anyways, instead of getting frustrated the Lord gave me a laugh lol God is so good! ...Oh the blessing of having children 😂❤️
The reality of what pregnancy looks like for some - and for some others it’s much worse. I am waiting for the second trimester glow and energy to kick in anyyyyy moment now. Any moment! My son snapped this pic of me just before, and then woke me up to ask for a biscuit. And yes, this is what my hair looks like when I’m sleeping/wake up 😂 #reallife Whilst I had morning sickness with now almost Mr 6, this pregnancy has been so different. The morning sickness (ie; any time of day/all day sickness) has been next level, I’ve experienced other aches and pains much earlier (hello SPD) and have had an unexpected amount of maternal anxiety amplified by our loss in March. That is easing as time goes on for the most part 🙏 This pregnancy has also come with next level gratitude though - a huge blessing when you are questioning your strength and tolerance. Weeks 13 and 14 saw a big improvement for me and I was excited to ‘turn a corner’. Alas, it appears it was a trick lol. Despite being lucky to have some good days along the way, I have spent much of the past few months exactly like this photo, except when I am at work or popping into coles to pick up my click and collect groceries! My own business has had to basically be pushed aside temporarily, everything other than what is an immediate necessity really. Let’s say my motivation and creativity isn’t thriving right now! 😏 But that is okay. My sole focus most days has been trying to function for work, keeping the house/family in some sort of order (ie; feeding my child etc lol) and of course growing this beautiful baby girl in my tummy. I have to say that my husband has been amazing and I would most certainly be lost without him of late. I know that not everyone has the support of others in times like this. To those of you who may be struggling to grow a little person, working, looking after a household and other little people on their own - oh I salute you mama! 💗 I have plenty I want to share with you guys, until it comes time to write, and then I go blank. So please bare with me! I’m certain my mojo and sparkle are just around the corner... 😉 #pregnant#secondtrimester#baby#reality
Every night on the way up the stairs to bed Rowan says the same thing “lay with me just one minute.” I’m usually too tired from the day and am juggling Hogan in the other arm so I usually half ass lay with him for a minute or tell him that Mama has to go and kiss him good night.
Tonight with his usual routine he asked. And for some reason even though I’m just as tired today and haven’t had one minute for myself I replied “how about brother lays with you tonight?” I don’t think he’s ever laughed so hard in his life. Huge belly laughs filled his room. His giggles are still ringing in my ear and I’m crying as I write this. How could something so simple make his entire day?
Moms, motherhood is hard. We often don’t have time for ourselves and I question myself every night if I was a good Mom that day. What could I have done better? Will tomorrow be just as exhausting? Will my kids remember good times? Or only when Mom yelled?
It’s time to stop being so hard on ourselves. In the grand scheme of things, were all doing our very best. I’m so glad one minute was all it took tonight to make Rowan and mommy’s day. ❤️
I love this candid shot of my friend Brandy ( @brandy.asweetaroma) and her family I took in 2018 during their at-home documentary session. I asked her what she sees when she looks at it now and her reply reaffirmed my commitment to the documentary style; for it’s often those spontaneous portraits combined with the little details of an important place that have the power to transport us back in time. ❤️ Here’s what she said: “I love it. I feel the excitement of having two BOYS and the anticipation of watching them grow together. I feel the sentiment of snuggling my baby knowing I’d blink and he’d be as big as my toddler… I see the big smile hiding behind that binky and hear the laughter as he giddily squealed “Daddy!” I see that tiny baby that I could hold with one arm who’s now running and giggling and talking… I see the beginning of our most chaotic season and feel blessed that it’s my season to navigate.”
👉🏻 What are the details in your life—right now, today—that you want to remember a year from now? 📸
Un amor sencillo, un amor del bueno.. Tú !! ✨Esos ojitos hermosos, esos que me hablan en mis días más oscuros y me calman la vida. Esos que nunca me cansaré de mirar, esos que me invitan a vivir y soñar.
Haven’t worked out since last Sunday and my body is literally CRAVING a good sweat session!
I knew this week would be busy, hectic, and exciting with school starting so I’m not stressing about it, but I am just shocked at how much my mind, body, and soul craves the exercise.
Back at it in the morning! 💯
