    You are dealing so well at working through some deep shit. It’s alot, but it’s no unmanageable. You’ve got this, even if you don’t feel like you do, you are strong and have been so strong through out.

    Sending you all my love.

      Nyxie, it definitely is a lot. Feels excessive on some days.
      Thanks for the encouragement.

    Beautiful. I am in awe of how open you’ve been.

    This speaks to me so much as this is how I feel since losing my Mum, that I’m not good enough. I don’t work the way I did before. It makes me question everything.

    This post is wonderful, thank you so much for sharing 💕

      Claire, to be honest I am pretty surprised at myself for being THIS vulnerable.
      Thank you for reading.
      Sorry to hear about your mom.
      Know you are not alone in your feelings.

    I don’t know what I’m doing on any given day either and it’s hard to figure out how to push through it. I have a great business and now a blog and I’m able to do all the mom things with and for my kids but still, I struggle. Thanks for sharing this, it’s totally something I feel all the time.

    I think this is so powerful – so often we struggle with the idea that we are supposed to know what were doing all the time and the truth is we just dont. Thanks for sharing how almost everyone feels but is too nervouse to say out loud!

      Shannon, thanks for reading. I think if we all knew how much we all struggle we wouldn’t feel as insecure about it.

    I think we all struggle at times – and some times are worse than others. I know I do. I hope writing this was cathartic- it felt like it was. Remember the bits you are getting right – there are many more than you think. And remember that everything is a learning process, no one is perfect and we are all allowed to be human. You got this.

      Rachael, so cathartic! You pegged it exactly. I did feel a little release getting it all down on paper.
      That is all I can hope for through this writing process anyway, along with helping other people process their own feelings. If I do nothing else with this blog other than those 2 things I will be fine with that.

    Wow, so many of us can identify with your words, yet, not many of us can actually express ourselves to the world. We think we need to have every piece of life fit perfectly in the puzzle but it doesn’t always work that way. I feel there is more to life than what we think it to be and have to search and seek why I’m on this Earth? Once we know why, everything will hopefully make sense. At least that’s what I hope. But give yourself credit and know your worth. You are a super woman no matter if at times you don’t feel like it. Hugs to you! Thank you for sharing.

      Gloria, thanks for your words! I feel the same way….figuring out why we are on this Earth is a pretty big thing to ponder but so important for us to do.

    This is a powerful post, Amy. Vulnerable and sincere– it is all really so hard. You are stronger than you think. Look back at your post with another pair of eyes– you are gracious, truthful, motherly, thoughtful, empowered, creative, working, thriving, loving and loved. It may not be easy but you’re doing it all. Give yourself that!

      Elease,
      Right after we were messaging and you said you read this post, I thought, “omg let me read it again.” As soon as I did I was blown away by all my grammar errors. They stuck out like crazy. How embarrassing lol. I guess I really was in a bad state of mind when I wrote this, or my baby girl was needing my attention. Actually probably a combination of both.
      Anyway, your words are incredibly encouraging and I really appreciate you taking the time to read it.

        Amy…I love your words. I identify with not knowing how to be… I’m so glad you decided to write this. It’s powerful…

          Thanks for saying that Alicia! I debated after posting what I had done, wondering if that was too raw. I’m so glad you could find it relatable.
