It's OK To Not Feel Fulfilled as a Mother

Something I absolutely love about this day and age is that everyone is starting to be more honest and open about mental illness,  and trying to live the best life possible.
There is still one problem that mothers have to hide.  They aren't allowed to admit they may not be fulfilled as a mother.  
I am a mother of two.  I love them and would do anything for them, but I don't feel like I'm enough as just being a mother.  
Being a mom is so hard,  it's all consuming and it's tough work. But I still don't feel like that is all I am.  I have this hole inside me
that tells me there is something else I need in my life. 
When admitting that,  most moms look at me like I'm a terrible person.  That I shouldn't be feeling that way,  and it makes me feel even worse.  But I've accepted that this is just who I am.  Not all moms feel this way,  and that's great for them.  But for us moms that still don't feel fulfilled shouldn't be judged,  or made to feel bad about themselves because of it.  

If you are a mom that feels unfulfilled,  there are a few things to do that will help..  

Volunteer: everyone feels good when they do something for others.  Whether it is for the homeless,  or animals,  or even don't something for the earth.  Any volunteer work will make you feel more fulfilled in life.  I personally love fostering dogs.  But I someday want to start my own nonprofit to help the earth in some way. 

Find a new hobby: I love learning new skills.  Recently I've started making jewelry to feel more satisfied with my life.  It's been a really fun adventure and has given me something to be excited about. 

Take a class: learning something new is a great way to expand your knowledge and feel like you are doing something useful.  

Stay at home moms don't usually have much spare time to do things for themselves.  But if your feeling unfulfilled,  you will start resenting your life. Be sure to make time for yourself and things you like to do so you can have a happier life. 

What are some things that help you feel more fulfilled outside of your family?

How To Do Vegas Right For Your 21st Birthday

The 21st birthday is a big one to celebrate.  You're finally out of your teens,  you can legally drink,  and you're considered an adult (more so than an 18-year-old).  
If you're going to celebrate this great phase in life,  you need to do it up right!  Vegas is the place to celebrate.  

Being a responsible adult,  you need to find some good friends that can join you on your excursion to Las Vegas.  Once you have found the right people to join you,  you must start planning. 
Hotel: There are many hotel choices when staying in Vegas.  But you MUST stay on the strip if you plan on drinking.  It makes transportation and navigating so much easier. 

Trust me,  you don't want to have to pay a taxi ride from the outskirts,  to the strip, and back.  Save that money for something better! I highly suggest staying at Mandalay Bay , or Ceasars Palace. But, if you have specific bars and places you want to go,  find out what hotel is closest to the area you will mostly be in.  It ma…

My Favorite Finds of 2018

2018 is coming to a close. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by.  2018 brought many fun things to my life.  For 2018 I made a goal to get out of my comfort zone,  to be a better parent, and to find more hobbies that interest me.  I did a pretty good job with all of these parts of my life. I started this blog which is really out of my comfort zone.  I've also been able to make a few new friends which are a miracle for me.   I worked on how I talk to my kids.  Apologizing to them more often when I do something wrong,  and making sure I tell them I love them as often as I can.  And as for the new hobbies, I've started a few.  I count my blog as a hobby since it's not really a money maker right now,  and I love writing for it.  
I've found a bunch of things that have improved my life in some way or another and I want to share them with you.  Maybe you might find something new you haven't tried or something that can improve your life in 2019!

How to Find Success in Life

Success is something everyone wants, but we might define it differently. A lot of people associate success with having lots of money or having a fancy job title. 
I think success can be a lot of different things. You can have success in relationships,  or creating that family you always wanted,  maybe it's being a successful athlete,  or getting that master or doctorates degree you have been working so hard to get. I think success can be anything you want that involves you to work hard to get. 
There are some things you can do to help you live the successful life you want.
