*The pic on the left and the following were from my post on Boss's Day last year* Today is National Boss’s Day. Over the years, I’ve had some great bosses, and I’ve had some that I’d like to not remember. No matter how amazing your boss may be.... there is NOTHING like being your OWN boss. It’s not about bucking authority.... it’s about blazing your own trail, chasing your dreams, and creating the freedom you want. It’s about making money AND fulfilling your purpose. I used to think those two things were separate. I used to believe that true impact could only happen outside of your 9-5 career. I’m so thankful to know that that’s not true, and I get to be proof of that! #beyourownboss#happydaytome *The pic on the right is from today, me with my little business partner. I just want to add that one of the most rewarding things about owning my business is showing my girls that with a good work ethic and the right opportunity, they can achieve their goals and make their dreams come true one day too 💜
You know those days when you’re actually having a good day... handling the toddler tantrums well, feeling happy, got the washing done, been a nice person to your husband etc and then life throws you a crazy curve ball to test you??? Yep, I’m having one of those days!! I thought I’d lost my phone... 😱 lol. But apparently I drove 15 minutes home from the fruit shop today with my phone on the roof.. and it was still there!!! Had a mini freak out but I’m better now lol. How’s your day going today?

I’ve been eye-balls deep in life lately, which is why my page has been a little quiet. It’s been sort of intentional though. . . As an #enneagram8 - Protecting my energy is HUGE. If there’s a lot going on outside of my control, I tend to retreat. Likewise, when I’m excited about changes and things happening in my life, I tend to emerge myself in whatever that is. I just can’t help it. 🤷🏼♀️🤣 . . God has been revealing new projects and avenues to pursue and it’s honestly been terrifying and exciting all at the same time. On top of homeschooling ✌🏻 kids, running a business and a house. . . But all this protected energy will be released soon! So this is permission to give yourself the space you need to be creative, work, study, and immerse. Let God work in you so He can work through you. You can’t have one without the other. . . Also mom tip: if you need a pullover when you take the fam to the pumpkin patch, your kid probably needs one to. 🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️ Here is Sawyer rocking his sisters jacket because I’m clearly winning #momoftheyear . Be jealous.
Friends, meet Eivy (ivy). 🌿 Born in the water early this morning. She loves to chill, cuddle, and is practically perfect in every way. We’re both doing well, but exhausted! Thank you to everyone for the prayers of safety over us. She is so so loved 💕 We are so happy to have another princess on the team! #babygriggs6
What does H U M B L E mean to you ? . For me humble has 2 parts ... . 1️⃣ being grateful and thankful for anything .. it can be from the simplest things of you gave Sally a hug today because she was sad or you are so excited that you learned some pretty incredible stuff . 2️⃣ to know when to ask for help and realize that we all have daily challenges that we face . Every person is different. Some are struggling to make ends meet, some have lost parents, children, spouses, some have gone thru divorces, some don’t have jobs, some have health issues that stop them from living, some are grieving, some are lonely and just want friendships. . No matter where you are at in life ... . Choose to be humble .... give yourself some grace... and remain kind 😘 . #momsofinstagram#busymom#momlife#sahm#parenting#motherhoodunplugged#housework#dishes#blogger#reallife#instamoms#busymom#living#life#lifestyle#neatfreak
