This week on the blog I’m sharing one of my most popular posts ‘Survival Tips for Day to Day Life’. . I originally wrote this post for single mums to help tackle the overwhelm of doing it all, but I receive a lot of messages from other mums saying they’ve found the tips so helpful even with their husband at home. . I share tips on self-care, routines, chores and accepting help. . The link to the post is in my bio. Have a read and I hope you enjoy 🌸

When my daughter was young, she wanted to contribute to our household. She walked dogs and made her mom a thick wad of paper money — at least 100 bills — with pony tailed leaders in the center. I framed her helpfulness on the wall for years until the green ink slowly faded, but I will never forget this generous act of creativity and kindness. #girls #currency #money #art #family #money #singlemotherhood

🎶NEW MUSIC MONDAY 🎶 . “Springtime” by: Chris Renzema . You're the resurrection That we've waited for You buried the night And came with the morning You're the King of Heaven The praise is Yours The longer the quiet The louder the chorus . We will sing a new song 'Cause death is dead and gone with the winter We will sing a new song Let "Hallelujah's" flow like a river We're coming back to life Reaching toward the light Your love is like springtime . You're the living water God, we thirst for You The dry and the barren Will flower and bloom You're the sun that's shining You restore my soul The deeper You call us Oh, the deeper we'll go . #gratitude #ichoosejoy #widow #widowcommunity #lifeafterloss #griefjourney #iamawidow #loss #james127 #widowed #widowlife #widowhood #youngwidow #widowsupport #griefandloss #sufferstrong #hopeforwidows #parentingthroughgrief #singlemotherhood #lostmyhusband #longforheaven #widowerlife #widowjourney #hopeforwidows #lossofaspouse #myhusbandinheaven #widowshelpingwidows #widowsofinstagram #widowstrong #widowsandorphans

Share this with every single mother you know! (#Repost @niesym) ・・・ Dear Single Mommy, It's a new week. How are we looking? What do you need to accomplish this week? I'm here to encourage you to set a goal and focus on meeting it. Doesn't have to be huge; doesn't have to be small. Setting one goal this week is a good start. Need to do a load of laundry, or simply FOLD a load of laundry? Make a doctor's appointment? Apply to that job? Read that bedtime story tonight? Make that phone call? Send a thank you card? Schedule that play date? I wish that I would have done a little more goal-setting when I was a single mommy. It might have made my days go a bit smoother and not have me feeling so frazzled. Sometimes I didn't know if I was coming or going. Goal-setting might have helped me feel a little more organized. It might have encouraged me and given me that extra push and sense of fulfillment that I sometimes lacked. I want to be your cheerleader...your accountability partner. So what am I cheering you on about this week? Let's go! I remember you. I see you. I love you. You got this, single mommy...you got this. And God's got you. ❤️

Coparenting is such a trip sometimes, continuing a relationship with someone you would rather have nothing more to do with for the purposes of collaborating for the care of the person you love most in the world. ✨ Sometimes my coparent and I are in a friendly and laid-back flow and and sometimes there’s high levels of tension, (usually when he’s attempting yet another round of pushing back on the same boundaries I’ve been holding for the three years since our relationship ended 🙃) and it becomes necessary to scale back communication to logistics. ✨ Right now it’s the latter, and you know what? It’s ok. I used to run the energy of the tension through my body and notice myself feeling on edge, which unsurprisingly showed up in my parenting which then added layers of guilt and shame. ✨ What I’ve learned and am continuing to practice as someone with empathic and codependent relational tendencies is that it is so important to have not only spoken boundaries but psychic and emotional boundaries as well. When we allow the emotional storms of others to take up real estate in our bodies, it steals our peace and poisons our capacity for joy. ✨ Truly, the most loving thing we can do for all parties involved is to allow others to build their own capacity for working through distress and discomfort by not making it our business or responsibility. We can pray or send the intetnion for their peace and freedom from suffering and, in doing so we reclaiming our own.

I've learned it's not only my responsibility to fill my own cup, but also it's unfair for me to run on empty and then blame it on others. Through my journey after my divorce, I've seen how it'd would have been so easy to hide behind the excuse that I didn't have a partner. Or, perhaps worse, run into the arms of another man in hopes that he'd complete me and all the pain would go away. ⁠ ⁠ In my book, "Who Will Hold Me?", I speak about this:⁠ ⁠ "My failed attempts at dating in the couple of years after my divorce have taught me that the way human relationships work, especially romantic ones, is unfair and exhausting to everyone involved. We pull on each other. We expect everything from each other. We expect each other to fix our inherent unworthiness. We put so much pressure on the other to make ourselves happy and provide exactly what we need. And when we don't get it, we get triggered and push each other away."⁠ ⁠ "I have learned that nothing—literally nothing—existing outside myself can fix the emptiness." ⁠ ⁠ "All we can do is choose to continue to walk the path together, to have compassion for each other, to know that we're all doing our best with what we know and what we have to give." ⁠ ⁠ How can you fill your own cup today? ⁠ ⁠ #singlemom #singlemomlife #singlemoms #singlemomsclub #singlemomsrock #singlemomma #singlemommy #singlemomstrong #singlemomsrule #singlemomclub #singlemomtruths #singlemomslife #singlemomstatus #singlemomtravel #singlemomboss #singlemompower #singlemomquotes #singlemomgoals #singlemommylife #singlemothers #singlemother #singlemotherhood #singlemothersrock #singlemotherlife #singlemum #singlemumlife #singlemomma #singlemomproblems #singlemummy #divorcedmom

Women grow up with an indoctrinated model of the world and the script we are handed is one of guilt driving us to be superwomen and take care of everyone else. For single moms, this takes our already stressful situation to a whole new level. In this interview with Donna Seebo, I share about what I encountered and how I broke through social pressure and learned to put my oxygen mask on first.

Momming level: 💯 (swipe ➡️) We're parked outside the school waiting for M to be done and this fevered little babe was fast asleep, but looked so uncomfortable. His head kept falling forward. I was looking all over the car for a glove or a shirt or anything to shove under his chin (but I clean out my car far too often). This sunglass case did the trick though! . . . . . #singlemotherHOOD #momgoals #momtruths #momlife #motherhoodjourney #momofboys #motherhoodinspired #motherandsons #motherhoodunplugged #becomingunbroken #divorcesupport #separationsupport #divorcesucks #onlinecourse #yourowntwofeet #yourestrong #singlemomtruth #singlemomsupport #singlemomlife #yourenotalone #singlemom #momhack #momgoals #mommingainteasy #momlevelexpert

Showing off - walking around 👣👣- at the child healthcare office this morning. She’s doing so well👏🏼💪🏼, added another 2 cms to her height this month! But today it was also time for her fourth round of shots. 💉 So happy with the nurses and doctors🧑‍⚕️👩‍⚕️ there. They always get a second person, so they can give her the two shots 💉💉simultaneously, so it’s over and done with straight away. After all that excitement, totally KO at home. Poor thing! ❤️ #smbc #singlemotherbychoice #singlemombychoice #choicemom #singlemomlife #singlemotherhood #motherhood #girlmom #bam #bammam #singlemomchronicles #mylifewithjulia

How many of you women get UNSOLICITED DMs from MEN on Instagram? My inner voice said to me, “Its because You posted a certain picture of yourself. That top was to low.” And then I thought that’s the same as saying “She asked for it because she wore that.” To the men that are following me, just because I wear a certain top or showed a little more skin does not mean you can start messaging me with offers. It’s CREEPY! I have a daughter and I am not going to teach her to hide herself incase she gets unwanted attention. What I wear or put on here is MY CHOICE. So to the men who think it’s ok to message me with crude offers and have nothing nice to say hit UNFOLLOW. . . . #speakup #unsoliciteddms #unsolicitedmessages #lettertomen #womenempowerment #girlpower #ifmywoundswerevisible #standup #femaleempowerment #yourstorymatters #notetomen #iamnotanobject #feminism #smashthepatriarchy #womenarenotobjects #mybodymychoice #singlemomlife #singlemotherhood #singlemom #singleparent #womanwhowrite #teammommy #rawmotherhood #realmotherhood
