Mothers and Others

A Mother by any other name would still be a Mother. Mothers come in all shapes, sizes, and disguises. There are many versions of mothers that have nothing to do with giving birth. To make this a bit more convoluted, there are mothers who fit into all the following categories of birth mother, adoptive mother, foster mother, father mother (dads who also act as moms), and lastly, mothers to others. Let me explain a little further. A Birth Mom with the Perfect Scenario This one seems to be a no-brainer but, it’s not. Let’s say you gave birth to your […]

Easy Kitchen Cleaning Hacks

Easy cleaning kitchen hacks exist, thank you Pinterest. A kitchen is where life flourishes, blooms, bonds are made, laughter echoes through the home, and where bellies are happy. The kitchen should be a sanctuary but also a place of functionality. Of course, in order for a place to function well, especially a kitchen, it needs to be clean. But, how many of us have time to get everything sparkling and all the grease stains off our cabinets? Kitchen cleaning probably doesn’t rank very high up there as a life fulfilling hobby.

It’s not the same as when you were just a single lad or a lad with a companion trying to make dollar bills. Moms, regardless of how many kids you have, you are always at level 10/10 busy no matter if you are a stay-at-home, have a job outside the home, working from home, full time, part time, or sometime when you feel like it, you are playing survivor all day, every day.

How to Deal with Money Stress

Money is a tricky subject, but it’s one that we have to discuss. Money stress is a real thing. From feeling like you never have enough to even feeling like you’re not doing enough good with all the fortune you have can be stressful all the same. The life long question seems to be how much is enough and then when that’s enough, is it really enough? We all want to live simply just so we can seem like we are not so deep into material things. Yet, we all want nice things because that’s just a function of having […]

Easy 5-Minute Self-Care Practices

Self-care should be a part of your daily lives, whether it’s 5 minutes in the morning or before bedtime. It’s your time to recharge and regroup. Some of us feel pretty guilty for taking time out for ourselves to sit in a bath until our fingers get wrinkly. This happens only because it seems like others are self-caring all day, every day and you wonder what bad life choices you’ve made not to deserve such a care-free lifestyle. The first thing to do is to quit comparing what you do with your time to what someone else does with their […]
