Almost three years postpartum and I’m finally comfortable enough to rock a body suit without a cover up. Nah, I’m not working out- or drinking flat tummy tea, i just stopped caring what it looks like! #MomBodAppreciationPost all the self love juju you could imagine - pair that with some hard truths and here you got today. I survived. I look back on how hard the first three years of motherhood have been and i realize every test has been passed. Every marker they suggested id plateau at, i keep rising above. Every time i wanted to give up, there was a groundbreaking shift that transpired and it often felt like rockbottom... but i was never on top of anything, more like aligned with where i needed to be. Not a moment before. There has been no setback I’ve faced to date that has wiped me out. & hmph, they’ve tried.

Happiness is such a layered emotion. The best way to tap into it would be to get back in touch with your imagination. Live a lot and remain mindful, that every one has a purpose, even if they haven’t found it yet. Today while annoyed with the world and dishonest agendas, i decided to try something I’ve been wanting to— but lacked the confidence in. All those beautiful dresses in stores that come marked with the names of women I’ll never be.. going to place I’ll never go— shit with dates I’ll never have. I’ve convinced myself I’m not a “regular” girl. Never have been- i didn’t appreciate the glitz that came with womanhood until i was trying to recall a time i ever felt comfortable with own confidence. I’m still working on that. But i took a chance, went into a store to waste some time and try on gowns way out of my budget- just to spark a pseudo-confidence boost. I fell in love with many, but i found a soulmate in this one. Lavender and fitting- embroidered by hand and way too fancy to rock to the post office.
But i like to take risks. | i stepped out of the dressing room too afraid to ask for help with snapping the dress and surely not wanting to take photos of my desperation. But the way the whole store oohed and ahhed made the sales associate swipe my phone away from me and show me what the world saw.
No one knew i was in there to waste their time, in fact i didn’t consider I’d be making any impression on anyone but myself. But the way the world works is— we aren’t meant to experience joy and happiness alone and usually, it takes up space when you go off and mind your own business. By the end of this visit i made three new friends, helped two girls decide on a prom dress and heard my son look at me and say “wow Mama, you look beautiful.” Yeah, safe to say you can insert the tears now.
Finally Feeling like myself again. Ready to tackle the world. Ready to get it done.
Shout out to prayer. That shit feels Like you’re talking to yourself. But you kinda are.
To the God in you. Keep talking. Dey listenin’.
The question was “How unashamed are you?” So much so that you’re willing to do anything within reason to make it work. So you pick up gigs scrubbing other people’s floors, because your son doesn’t go without — even if you do. Self sufficiency feels good when it’s working for you. And there are moments when you have to make it work for everything. Rents paid but then there’s is next month and then there’s that growth spurt the kid is walking around in high waters, because of. Then there’s that vacation you need. Those groceries and that new vinyl printer you deserve. Instagram doesn’t pay my bills, my work ethic does and I’m hungry for more. I skip meals so i stay hungry, stay humble, stay hitting them baseboards because you can’t keep a home of your own if you never had to work for it.
So let’s just buss one shot for the mom who makes the most of it, and still looks like a right swipe on tinder while doing it.
4 hours later i’m still in the same spot. Im over working my two year old- but he doesn’t seem to mind running around the house for me. Call it what you want but I’ve waited 45 months to be able to give him a direction and he follow it. #UnAshamedParenting#selfcaresaturday#ARoseIsARose | @iconundies 🌹

That last week was BRUTAL.
But here’s a self care tip that only takes the length of your favorite song.
Lip Brush Singing: has medicinal powers pretty much like apple cider vinegar- it cures depression, self doubt, foolish insecurities and promotes self love, amazing talent and just feels silly and fun. Why must it be serious, ALL the time? As I’m mentally preparing for my day.. so 3 mins to myself in the middle of my own concert (in my draws) won’t cause more hurt than it does healing. The healing is in the letting loose and knowing that the forces got you. ~ my favorite mom bod undies @iconundies | this blush color is new and limited edition! I bought two 💓. Song: north face by ODIE who else loves this song so much they instantly fall into full concert mode?!😩😂 #mombodappreciationpost#iconundies#selfcaresaturday
Journaled 4/6/18 OH. It frustrates me, at times, the disclaimers needed before wanting to vent. The caution, or mindfulness needed to communicate effectively. Some days, I fight to make words— I catch myself snarling with hesitancy.. to everything. I fight all the back talk because clearly I only have sounds. Moans and Groans that collide like melodies, no one wants to play a second or third time, but truth is this moment, in this song fucking sucks— but its part of the damn song. So I’m forced to sit through it, because if I skip it.. I’ll miss the point of the ending.. Trust me, I hate repeating myself too, but it doesn’t change the fact that sometimes our best just isn’t good enough and we’re going to need another story line.
Blah, blah, blah— moral of the story you got to sit through the whole song to figure out the best part about it is the hook. #ShutUpAndListen#MercuryRxMadeMeDoIt#ImnotYellingNoMore#MyJournalCatchTheHeat#Honestmotherhood
The post office is our second home.
There is no special formula or pre made dressings that make this recipe easier. Mothering, running and operating my 1 woman business, figuring out who my “best self” feels like and all the way operating at 200 percent for each project. There is no secret- #IssaBalance. Like a hand full of packages and coffee who better not spill- chasing a toddler and a dream— remaining grounded and grateful— level headed and well rested— while also getting shit done and *trying* to look like I’m always enjoying it. Operative word : trying. Some days are better than others, some days are more productive than others—I am forever grateful for the perspective of both days— without them I’d think this instagram sh*t was easy and I’m proud to say I’m not that silly. | support goes a long way @erynamelshopee#MomPrenuerDiaries#BrujaMa#erynamelism#GrindFromHomeMom
