Rumpelstiltskin

My kids ask why I make stupid faces when I dance… and I had to explain to them, that we must let out all the funk, otherwise you’re not really dancing. They are now practicing their funky faces, even during their dance classes lol

I was Danny at one point in my life.

Updating my phone and seeing all my photos and videos of the past year, and wow. Like legit, why did I enjoy taking so many pictures of myself? lol it’s kind of embarrassing… If I could travel back in time to punch myself in the face for some of the things I’ve done, I would.

10 days notice. 14 rented dresses. Model friend last min request. Family photographer. 13 hr red eye flight night before. 72 hrs hustle. 0 sleep.

My first photoshoot ever. I’m wanting to do more of this.

I love love love making people happy… I have this need to serve and go above and beyond. I want to give my best… my all. Or I don’t want to lift a finger at all.

When people ask are you an introvert or an extrovert? Why is it “or” instead of “and”? Why can’t we be EVERYTHING? That’s why I don’t entertain the idea of the Myers Briggs test… my ex husband was big on it, and when he asked me to take it multiple times, I show up extremely both… I believe it’s to test people who have been through the school/work systems, not outliers who self educate.

So crazy… I haven’t talk to him in months, I just unblocked him and started thinking about him and BOOM, he messages me right away… how crazy is that? Legit, I believe I’m getting better with my intentions.

It’s nice to have people who understand my weirdness… I will just disappear for a while to work on a solution to whatever it is I’m trying to solve. I block to avoid temptation. I know that’s not normal… but who’s trying to be?

My conversations with myself are so weird… lol I can’t imagine anyone else able to tolerate such silliness.

Filled with candies, toys and words of encouragements in reusable acorn capsules… this mini vending machine encourages my kids to figure out ways to earn quarters.

It’s probably one of the funniest things for my mom and I to watch… they get so excited and want to put all the candies from our pantry in the capsules… then they want to work for the quarters just to get the candies they could’ve gotten easily for free from the pantry.

Becoming a single parent was one of the biggest blessings for our family. I’m holding the bar super high, I think I’m going to be single for the rest of my life.

I’m learning to become the best mom I can be for my kids.

Since I no longer have nannies… and their father is becoming increasingly busier with his success, plus he lives over 4K miles away… it’s just my mom, the kids and I… pretty much 90% of the time.

We’ve been bonding and growing in ways that was never allowed to before.

I’m a much better daughter. My mom deserves the world.

I didn’t realize what I was missing before. I thought I had it all before… now I have even more.

God does work in mysterious ways.

I trust. I truly, truly trust.

With love and only love.

Aloha
