Summer reads!

Hello everyone, I have recently gotten a new library card and I am super excited because I can go and get some amazing books. I am writing below the list of books I have read and also the ones that I am hoping to read by the end of the summer. Feel free to leave me a comment with some of the books you recommend

1. this is my ALL TIME FAVORITE book, I’ve read it about 7-8 times, and every time I read it again, something in me changes. it is consider a
“self help” book,, but for me it is more than that, it is book that teaches you about love, compassion, faith and believing in the impossible.

2.
this is one of my favorites! women should definitely empower each other, this book is geared toward female entrepreneurs and as Cara calls them “Side Hustlers”

3. This book!! this was a book that at moments it was way more than I could handle, I loved all the twists and all the characters too.

4. this book was so adorable! it made me want to buy a plane ticket to Paris, it will give you ladies great ideas about some changes worth making.

5.
this is the most recent book I read, I LOVED IT! I laughed, and cried. it really was a great book about love, that sibling love, that family love, and that self love. Totally recommend it.

It IS OK!

Hello everyone, I hope you all are having a great week so far, I have been debating whether or not to talk about this topic because I feel like everyone has an opinion about this, but I want to talk about the FEELINGS that some Stay at Home Moms experience, I recently read about the “HOUSEWIFE SYNDROME”, to be honest, I’ve never heard that term before but sometimes I do have all the “symptoms”

Apparently this Housewife syndrome is the feeling of some emptiness and some kind of that we are not enough because we are at home all day, every day, it is the feeling of tiredness and not having any motivation to do something, and when you do have that motivation it is the feeling of thinking you don’t have enough time to do anything, not time for doing the dishes, and cleaning, and making breakfast, lunch and dinner, doing laundry etc.

I am sure this happens to millions of moms out there but right now it is happening to me, maybe I have been a SAHM for too long (it will be 2 years this November) or maybe it is the fact that I’m running out to things to do at home. Either way, sometimes I feel like I wish I was back at work, I wish I was the same individual I was before I became “just a mom” and then the other “symptoms” start happening, but please, don’t get me wrong or don’t get confused, I am not depressed, at least I am 99% sure that I am not, but I do wish people in general understood that IT IS OK to feel this way.

IT IS OK to feel tired and to not have everything together, IT IS OK to just want to lay down in the sofa and watch reality tv, IT IS OK to not make dinner every day, IT IS OK to wake up late and let your child have breakfast in bed so you could stay in bed for 10 more minutes, IT IS OK to go out for a drink once a week, IT IS OK to ask your husband or partner for help, IT IS OK to go out and leave your kids at home with their dad, IT IS OK to want to do things alone,  and also, something that is very important to me, IT IS OK TO RUN YOURSELF A NICE BUBBLE BATH FOR JUST YOU!!! and don’t forget the candles and wine.

Please don’t get me wrong, I LOVE , I ADORE MY FAMILY TO DEATH, but I do need to be the same old person I was before I became a mom, being a mom has certainly changed my life, I am now forever responsible for another person and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
