if you asked me to describe myself using one word while growing up during my #childhood and #teenageyears, that word would be #timid. I was as #shy as they come. so shy I could barely make #eyecontact with anyone for longer than a few seconds. now while I've #committed myself to work on this every time I talk to someone, I first had to figure out #WHY this was always such a #challenge for me. 🤔
I've grown to #love being around people, especially the RIGHT people, over recent years. I think a lot of you #thrive around #likeminded people because it's natural and they bring out the best in you, but how do you hold/present yourself when you have to make an important #firstimpression? 🤝
for me, it boiled down to 2 things: #confidence and #peopleskills. maybe I struggled with these because I grew up an #onlychild? whatever the case may be, I knew it needed work and I'm the only one who can fix it. 🧠
I think confidence and people skills go hand-in-hand. they feed off of each other. this is obviously much easier said than done and it will take time to develop, but you have to be very #honest and #upfront with yourself about who you CURRENTLY are and the person you want to BECOME. 💭
are you comfortable with yourself? are you confident with yourself around other people? if you aren't, what are you doing every day to build up your self confidence? this will take you places you've never imagined. but you can't do it for other people, you have to do it for YOU! ❤️

Years ago, during this time of year, I was MAD 😠 BITTER 🤬ANGRY 😡 and FRUSTRATED 😒. Why? Because I didn’t have the time off to be with my kids during their school closures. So I would be pissed at my employer and would be envious of all of those lucky moms who had husbands worked so hard that they got to stay at home. I didn’t have grandparents to help out. So I would resent my friends who had amazing family and grew angrier at our dysfunctional worthless family.
I didn’t feel like I had any other choice. I didn’t want to give up having a career. Work was part of who I was. I felt so torn. Then I literally stumbled into an opportunity that ultimately led to a solution to my frustration... which makes this series of events stress free and something I’m excited about... more time home with Rebel, lounging around in our pajamas for weeks!

What an absolutely wonderful 5 and a half weeks it's been spending just about every minute of every day with my Caleb. Watching him grow and learn and have the time of his life spending time with family, seeing and experiencing new things, expanding his vocabulary and trying to get him to use the damn toilet and while I'm rather excited to be able to have some me time tomorrow when he starts a new school year at the same time I know I'm going to feel a little sad not having him around all the time. My little feisty side kick! He's got such a thing about "family" at the moment whether it be birds, moths, animals, etc. He likes to know that everyone has someone and that kinda makes me proud. He must be happy in his little heart knowing the importance of being surrounded by those he loves. It shows me he truly did have a great holiday, just like he told me this evening! 😎👌 #mom#babyboy #2018 #backtoschool#toddler#feisty#almostthree#onlychild#proudmama#family#montesorriliving
This furball turned 6 today! Happy to report that she still shares my pillow every single night (all 75lbs of her), will bark if anyone dare hug in her presence but could not be bothered to wake up during an earthquake, and now only takes her food out of non shiny bowls. Happy birthday @macgyvermacfort ...stay weird. #onlychild@1iwonder (📷: @upperfrogmore@justinmarshallpeters )
