I want to take a minute out before I post my weekly post and be serious for a minute.
One thing I’ve learned as a parent, married or divorced, is that if you teach a lesson, you must live by it too. I always talk to them and encourage my kids to do their best.
One lesson I had to remind myself this week was its only a moment. I was stressing so much last week with bills and planning a birthday party, it got overwhelming.
I haven’t had this kind of pressure since my divorce. It kinda gets to that point where you feel like your in a bottomless hole that never ends. Then you remember. Its just a moment. A moment you learn from. A moment you’ll remember that you become stronger from.
This lesson I really stress to my older two. They are in high school, and we have ‘my life sucks’ or ‘my life is over’ days twice a week. I remind them, it’s a moment in time. My calming spots are on this blog and in my kitchen creating drinks and trying new foods and/or creating a new spin on old dishes.
Some of my readers are going through this as we speak. Remember, it’s just a moment. Life will push through this, and turn around. You’ll see that silver lining and go, ‘woosah’.
Keep that in mind, parents. Life is full of moments, good, bad, and you can’t be serious?, lol. At the end of the day, its all good. Common Sense Mom says so.
