Friday’s Thoughts

Hello beautiful humans!

I should probably post more often again. It would help the things that I DO post to make more sense. Or at least it would help me with the problem I’m currently having where I sit down to write a post and then I feel the need to recap everything that has happened in the 2-3 weeks since my previous post, except that I really don’t feel like doing that because I could create a whole post about those happenings alone. SO instead, we’re gonna do two things. I’m gonna tell you a couple of random things about how my life is currently going (no context though) and then I’ve got a little store of thoughts in my head from therapy and just random internet searches that I wanna share. Here goes!

Life Things!

I honestly don’t know how I juggled 5+ classes during my time in music college. I just bumped my course load up to two classes per 8-week term and trying to keep assignments straight seems far too complicated.

I do not care if you think I’m a lazy mom: applesauce and yogurt pouches make fantastic toddler snacks. Fight me.

I’m laughing/crying with all the moms of 10/11 month old kids who say their child loves all food. So did mine. All that changed two weeks ago and now she lives off of fruit and goldfish. At least she’s choosing semi-healthy things though.

Baby fever is weird.

I one hundred percent did not miss job hunting. Remind me again why I pushed up my graduation date because I’m having a hard time remembering.

The housing market sucks.

If I haven’t texted you back, or I forgot something, I apologize. My brain hasn’t been in the right frame of mind to handle anything outside my own house lately.

Mind Things

**These are all things that are paraphrased from either my therapy sessions or various TikTok channels that are living rent-free in my head and I like it that way.**

There is absolutely no moral tie between you and the state of your home.

It’s your responsibility to provide food and clean clothes for your children, not to make sure they never have dirty dishes or dirty laundry.

Debt is not a moral issue. That’s all there is to it.

God called us to love others and help others, but not at the risk of our own health. You matter too, remember that.

Sometimes setting boundaries means with yourself, not other people.

Your worth as a human being is not attached to your productivity level, your job, your finances, nothing. Your worth as a human being does not change.

That’s all I got today,

Love and kindness and socially distanced hugs!
