Us mamas tend to carry a lot of weight on our shoulders. 🤷🏼♀️ one of the things i get asked the most is, “how do you do it all?” and my answer is always, “i don’t.” i don’t do it all. i have learned that the only way to be the best mom, wife, friend, sister, daughter, and business woman that i can be is to delegate and ask for help. there is no shame in either of those. when i need to take care of a sick child and try to keep the others healthy and happy, i ask for help. when i need some alone time to strengthen my mind, my body, my soul, i ask for help (aka the sweet ladies at the gym daycare). when i need some time with my husband, i ask for help (aka grandparents or babysitter). when i need to spend an hour or two to focus on upcoming campaign content or focus on nutrition clientele, i ask for help (aka baby sitter or grandparents or hubby). the strongest, most successful people i know (and know of) have always been forthright about the fact that they did not get where they were without help. so here is my best advice to anyone out there who wants to do anything better in life than where they are at today: humble yourselves enough to acknowledge that you cannot do everything on your own and you do not have all of the answers figured out. ask for help and advice from people who you trust and believe in to help make you a better individual. that’s how we can do it all. ❤️ #thebalancedmama

We spent our weekend in the beautiful white mountains and then parked our booties (quite literally 😜🚗 ) at the beach this afternoon. our time in the mountains was amazing, but the beach is my happy place --> which do you prefer?
⛰ or 🏖 ???

Why do owls always get invited to parties?
because they’re such a hoot 🦉
how did the telephone propose to his girlfriend?
he gave her a ring 💍
popsicle stick jokes make mondays so much better 🍡🍡🍡🍡🍡🍡🍡🍡🍡🍡🍡
The fur baby on the left is a first-class housemate. she’s easy to live with (you barely know she’s there); she’s neat, tidy, gives good cuddles and eats her greens. the fur baby on the right is a tad more demanding. he’s a scrounger when it comes to food, no personal belongings are safe when he’s around, he’s a bit smelly, and he’s the first one to embarrass himself when we have guests over (often launching himself at them as soon as they walk through the door🙈). the not-so-furry baby in the middle, well, what can i say. don’t let that cute toothless grin fool you. since last thursday (yes, we know exactly when her erratic behaviour started) she’s quickly become the cheekiest, whiniest and stroppiest housemate of them all. any tips on how we can stop one housemate from jumping up at our guests or how we can perhaps curb the other’s cheekiness? i think i may have to advertise for some new housemates at this rate 😂. fancy swapping yours?
A simple truth. we humans often enter the arena of interaction thinking we need to pick a side. but what if we were all comfortable and "right", with our own truth?
what if that rightness could exist alongside another's opposite rightness?
could there be harmony if we could accept the differences in eachother without feeling somehow wrong inside ourselves? is it possible to honour the "right" in others without feeling ego threatened?
imagine a place like that!
let's go there 💞
Introducing one of our #talkmb panelist • meet @geridelvento who will be joining the real talk at our second talk mama boss panel.
geraldine began blogging before she was pregnant and documented mostly lifestyle and fashion. while pregnant with her daughter, she had fun styling her bump without visiting the maternity department; she got creative! without realizing it, she was reintroducing herself as a #momstyle blogger. she tries her best to find a balance between full-time ministry, family, and just life. although, blogging may seem like her only job, she wears many hats, creative director, full time mama to her daughter g, and finding the best pink spots in town. her creativeness is what sets her apart and has instilled that in her daughter, for which clearly has taken on the lesson so well. .
we can’t wait to listen in on her insight on what it means to be a creative mama, the ups and downs and more. don’t wait, get your tickets now and join the real talk!
