Parenting is hard. There is no rule book for Dummies for being a parent because every child (and parent) is unique and one of a kind. There is no one size fits all. Therefore, it makes sense that parenting is one of the hardest things a person could do in their life—if you thrive to be a good parent. If the desire isn’t there, then I by no means want to encourage or talk up shitty parents—parents who don’t strive, you suck.

In Shakespeare’s “Othello,” Emilia tells Othello that the moon has “drawn too close to the Earth” — and driven men insane.
The idea that full moons hold power, can disrupt emotion state of minds, and might even cause physical illness or changes, is a very strong belief for generations and even in today’s generation.
In fact, one study says that nearly 81 percent of mental health professionals believe that the moon has the power of making some people ill.
Here’s what researchers have found about the moon’s effects on human bodies and behavior.
When you see smiles, epic locations, flawless posing and clips of recorded laughter, do you truly think that all of those people are genuinely THAT happy and overjoyed? It might surprise you, but most are probably not. If social media has taught us anything, it is mastering the art of faking shit REALLY well.
There is no one on the face of this dying earth that knows how it feels to have a “bad day”, unless they too have tried to live a day while battling chronic pain. It’s hard, even as a working mom to not find myself slightly annoyed when hearing other mom’s say they have it so hard. No. I agree that it’s hard for you, but remember it could always be harder. It still feels good to vent, which is what we all do and what we ALL should welcome a listening ear to because we are human and we all have our days that feel shitty.
I find it interesting that 2020 has been a year full of blessings for my family and I, considering that for so many in the world it has been a year full of pain, stress, and trials. To me, it makes sense in a way….. Years before, while so many were blessed and thriving it seemed, I was suffering in some crazy ways. I was going through trial after trial all while watching the world go by with smiles.
