I absolutely love social media (minus the negativity), there are so many people who build each other up and just talk about their daily lives in hopes to convey a sense of normalcy for people who feel as if they are alone in their struggles.
I can tell you from experience that no matter what you are going through as a mother or how alone you feel in a situation, you are not alone. We as mothers need to stick together and build each other up not tear each other down when we don’t agree with the decisions we make for our own families.
Here are the uplifting social media posts I have enjoyed in the month of October.
My 2yo just came into the bathroom to give me a hug… as I was pooping. Now, I can't figure out if I'm annoyed or happy. #momproblems

I'm probably the only mom but I don't think I'm emotionally ready for potty training my baby. 😭 #momproblems

Why You Should Eat Your Kids Candy:
• Cavity prevention
• They're bad at counting
• You paid for it (in some way)
• You ARE the boss of them

As an adult I find it weird we grow pumpkins just to turn them into Jack-o-Lanterns then throw them out. Seems like a waste.

Went to a Halloween party and a guy came dressed as Silent Bob.
He literally didn’t talk to anyone the entire night.
Best. Costume. Ever.

13: When will I know I'm an adult?
Me: When you have a favorite spatula.

Starting off the day with a little throwback Thursday from the littles: Colt was up just after midnight for snuggles… . Then Aub needed me to help her find her bear… . Then Colt needed to change pjs… . Then Aub needed "just a little sip" of water… . Thank goodness that's not the norm anymore but goodness I wish I hadn't turned off the alarm 🙈🙈🙈 #miraclemorningfail Nonetheless it's time to get to it! Happy Thursday my friends ✌️✌✌
Strength grows in the moments you think you can’t go on but you keep going anyway. . Over the past couple of years we have walked through the fires of hell. . Injustice. Deceit. Betrayal. Character Assassination. . There were moments where I just wanted to give up. Run away. There is nothing worse than when someone accuses you of something that isn’t true. It was in these moments, I found out who I was and how strong I was created to be. . I knew that I had two choices. 1) To Get Bitter or 2) To Get Better. It’s that simple. You either take what has been dealt to you and allow it to make you better or you allow it to tear you down. The choice belonged to me, not my circumstances. . You can feel like the flames of the fires are engulfing you and that there is no escape. I PROMISE you, truth always wins and justice always prevails. It may take longer than you would like, but those flames are refining you, they are not destroying you. They are a part of your story in becoming all you were created to be. . This week was a beautiful and life breathing week for our family. A close of one chapter and an exciting beginning of the next. It hasn’t been easy, but we made it and we are stronger for it. Believe when I say, when I look into a fire, I smile. The flames inside of me burn stronger than any fire around me. . Friends, there is going to be very painful moments in your life that will change your entire world in the matter of minutes. Let them make you stronger, kinder and smarter. But don’t you dare go and become someone you are not. . You are stronger than you know.

All of these that I’ve listed so far are very inspiring and help me to realize even on my worst days, that I am not alone.
I hope that this post has helped you in some way to motivate and inspire you to keep going no matter how hard it may seem at the time.
Here are a few quotes and pretty images for an extra boost 🙂
It has been proven that even just the action of smiling (when you don’t feel happy) can greatly improve your mood.
Take some time to live in the moment without rushing around trying to get everything done.
October went by in a hurry because we had so much to do. It can get so hectic and we forget to savor the moments we can never get back.
So, this November, be thankful that you are able to rush the kids all over the place but also take the time and be thankful that you can spend it with those you love.
Have a happy and healthy week!
