A Beautiful Space Makes a Beautiful Mind

A Beautiful Space Makes a Beautiful Mind

I’ve been a bit absent about keeping up with my blog as I took some time to wrap my head around many things that all seemed to jump out at me at once. I’m still on hiatus as per my chiropractor with my running and most of my ability to workout. That hit me fairly hard as it’s been part of my regular routine for so very long. With that came A TON of anxiety over my weight, my loss…

This is anxiety. This is my life.

This is anxiety. This is my life.

This is anxiety. This is my life. I sat in my daughter’s room tonight. I was trying to talk to my best friend but tonight like most nights as of late, we didn’t have much we could share. Life’s been so damn busy that it just doesn’t happen anymore. A few minutes here, a few minutes there. “What are you doing tonight?” “Running after the baby is asleep.” “I’m at the store.” “I miss you.” “I miss you, too.” And…

The Day My Anxiety Left

The Day My Anxiety Left

I felt it today. Normal. My normal. The normal I’ve been missing for over a year and a half. Today I was shopping with my toddler. We experienced the meltdown of all meltdowns. You know the kind. Screaming, crying, flailing limbs. She was inconsolable. We were past nap time. I stood in line with her calm, super patient just rocking her back and forth. I told myself She’s my third kid, I’m a pro at this by now. A week…

Running on a full tank…

Running on a full tank…

I’ve had a few months to get myself back on track.  It’s been a difficult process because I had to get deep and dirty into things that I never thought I would approach.  Where does that leave me now?  I’m flying high!  Ginny has returned to the real world.  Am I perfect? No.  I’ll never be.  I’m a the “old Ginny”? No. I don’t believe I can ever be her again.  I’m a “new Ginny” and I’m still getting to…

I AM SUPERWOMAN… WHAT?

I AM SUPERWOMAN… WHAT?

Superwoman???? Over the past few weeks I’ve been called Supermom… Rockstar…. Superwoman.  I just roll my eyes.  I’m just me.  I’m not doing anything fantastic or special.  I’m barely holding it together.  Supermom?  Holy hell no way! Or maybe I am?  I can see it now… ————————————————————————————————– Wanted: SUPERWOMAN Must be able to keep 3 kids alive daily, load the dishwasher everyday, wipe down the counters, wash and fold endless laundry, take care of the sickies, change 42 diapers a…

Love Yourself First

Love Yourself First

Love Yourself First.  I look at that phrase over and over everyday.  I made it the wallpaper on my phone.  I need that reminder.  I believe that sometimes we forget the need to love ourselves.  I know myself – as a mom, as a wife – I don’t do that.  I spent a few precious months this year focusing on loving myself with all my flaws… and then life happens.  I believe I lost sight of it over the past…

Finding me

Finding me

Ginny – 1   Anxiety – 0 I sat and stared at this screen for weeks wanting to write but I didn’t know where to start.  So many things running through my head.  Good things.  Very good things.  Happy things.  I forgot what happy felt like… or a least this type of happy. Update:  I have been anxiety free for 28 days.  Twenty-eight.  It’s so big that I actually mark it on my calendar.  It’s a huge deal and it’s something…
