Encouragement For The Struggling Single Mom

Remember every day you and your children enjoy and get through in one piece is a win kind of day.

Encouragement For The Struggling Single Mom
The Huffington Post

Life in general is hard.

Add a baby and take away one parent – the struggle becomes so real.

Bath time get missed.
Late dinners are made.
Drive-thru may end up being your best friend.
Mornings start early and evenings run until it is early morning again.
Laundry piles up.
Bills add up.
Dishes in the sink are an often look now opposed to your once clean kitchen.
It can be a lot to handle for one person who is responsible for raising little people.

I know sometimes it can feel like you’re failing at the single mom thing.

You yelled at your kid over something insignificant after already losing your temper for the millionth time today.
You took a bath for 5 minutes instead of giving your little one a bath, because you just needed to be clean one time this week and get a break.
The house isn’t spotless and every time you clean it is seemingly pointless.
You have to be the main barer of good and bad news.
If you’re a working single mom add on the guilt of not spending enough time with your babies.

Everyday its either a win or loose.
There aren't enough hours in the day to do everything that needs to be done, plus spend adequate quality time with your children.
It can feel like a loosing battle, but then something wonderful happens.
That sweet baby you're raising learned something new at school and can't wait to tell you about it.
The I love you runs from the mouths of little ones that you feel sometimes hate you.
Snuggle time becomes bedtime routine instead of chaos, because sometimes that is most time you get with the babies.

God created you to be mom.
He blessed you with your children knowing full well what your situation would be before you were even born or your children were given to you.
Trust in him to give you strength when you feel weak.
The dishes and laundry can wait, they'll be there unmoved tomorrow; your babies never stop growing.
Give yourself grace when your temper gets the best of you.
You're only human.

Remember every day you and your children enjoy and get through in one piece is a win kind of day.
You rock at this single mom thing and don't tell yourself any different.

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
