Note from Nicole ~ It's Hard.

Can I just get real for a minute?

It’s hard.

To keep watch of our kids' health, mental health, and overall happiness during a pandemic that continues to be ever-present while also trying to keep myself and my wellbeing intact.

It's hard.

To keep track of my work schedule and work expectations while working from home with a house full of kids and a spouse.

It's hard.

To keep track of kids' activities, the grocery list, food preferences and requests, and all the things that go into being a daily mom, wife while also worrying about my growth, self-care, and the needs I have to be fulfilled as a person.

It's hard.

Worrying about money, saving, and having the ability to meet my family's needs, fulfill some of their wants while also meeting my wants and needs without resentment and regret.

Adulting is hard. Wanting to be young while my body is feeling older. Morning backaches and popping joints as I walk down the stairs.

But I'll take it all for family time, health, and memories that make it all mean something.

I know I'm not alone here, but I do know so many maybe don't share stuff like this or want to put it out there. Don't worry. You are not alone.

Hang in there.
