If you are holding a cup of coffee and someone comes along and bumps into you or shakes your arm, making you spill your coffee everywhere... Why did you spill the coffee? . "Because someone bumped into me!!!" . Wrong answer. . You spilled the coffee because there was coffee in your cup. . Had there been tea in the cup, you would have spilled tea. . POINT IS 👉🏼 Whatever is inside the cup is what will spill out. . Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you (which WILL happen), whatever is inside you will come out. It's easy to fake it until you get rattled. . So we have to ask ourselves... “what's in my cup?" . When life gets tough, what spills over???.... . Joy, gratefulness, peace, and humility???? . Anger, bitterness, harsh words, and reactions???? . Life provides the cup, YOU choose how to fill it! . Let's work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, words of affirmation; and kindness, gentleness, and love for others. (Author unknown) . Lost 3 things that filled your cup up today in the comments👇🏼 . I’ll start: 1 - Family I can count on to help with my 5 crazies. 2 - Connecting further with a friend who is also on a cancer journey with her husband. 3 - A ‘white mocha’ Starby’s to keep me company half way through my 9 hour wait at the hospital while Chris had a procedure. (AND, it was their last day open before closing to Covid tomorrow) it was my lucky day!!!!
#MomHack of 2020 (mask life).... . I forgot to send Lola’s mask with my mom for school drop off. Oops. . Never underestimate a determined mom, am I right? . The only mask we had in my car was way too big. So, we just looped it around her piggy tails and voila - problem fixed! 😂 . Where there’s a will, there’s a way!
You decide?.... Is this the look of a woman who just: A. took her family of 7 for Christmas photos 7 weeks early AND didn’t lose her sh*t (<— yes, that deserves a mention). OR.... B. decided to ignore the two bins of laundry to be folded and the rest of the house chores for the day and snuggle her baby for a nap. ?????? . If you guessed C. Both A and B, you’d be right. Who am I?!?! 🤷🏼♀️ . Celebrating every win over here, even if I have to make them up. 😂 . ‘Cause life is too damn short to focus on the negative!

Scared 💩less?... Fear can make you quit or create... you get to decide... . In the last 30 days I have: - Lost my babysitter & house helper. - Lost my online business manager. - Lost my manager at my PT clinic. - Had a furloughed employee decide not to come back. (I’m hurt by all of these as they were their own personal issues and basically left me in a huge 🍆 <—- pretend that’s a pickle. 😂 . All the while while: - Fighting with insurance companies and on the phone with multiple doctors daily to get my husband the cancer testing and treatments he needs. - Learning this past week that the reason a life insurance company denied our application back in February for my husband (with no explanation at the time even after asking) was actually because his bloodwork showed signs of his cancer that we didn’t detect until July. 😡((Oh you know I’m gonna go all ERIN BROCKOVICH on their asses. That is 5 months you stole from us. It’s ethically and morally negligent and no BS excuse about policy or protocol they make will make me think otherwise.)) . Oh and did I mention that I started my own homeschool curriculum for my 3 boys with two other littles by my side too. . And that is only the surface level 💩 as a two business owning (still breastfeeding) mom of 5. . I’m so overwhelmed, exhausted, hurt and SCARED.... . NO, I’M TERRIFIED....
