Having lived with anxiety for over 13 years, speaking publicly about it for almost 3 and having finally been officially diagnosed with an anxiety disorder recently, I've heard just about everything. While my family and friends mean well, so many of them have a knack for saying the wrong thing when my anxiety is at its highest. It occurred to me that they aren't trying to be hurtful, they are really just trying to help me to get over that "moment". So instead of getting upset, I figured I'd share the 5 things you should never say to someone with anxiety, on the blog today. Can you think of any I’ve missed? .

#ad Ladies, how much do you really know about your #periodhealth? Even in my 40’s, I can honestly say that I am still learning about my body and what it should and shouldn’t do every month. And the truth is, most women don’t know what is normal vs. abnormal when it comes to their #period. In a recent survey, 85% of women agreed that heavy periods were “normal” - and 69% agreed that pain is “something to be expected”. FACT: Heavy periods do not have to be your normal – know your options: http://www.WeHateHeavyPeriods.com #WeHateHeavyPeriods #linkinbio @changethecycle #empoweredwomenempowerwomen #healthandwellness #empowerwomen #healthfirst #healyourself #healthytips #empoweryourself #periodproblems #womenhealth #nourishyourself #periodpositive #empowerothers #workingmomlife #healthjourney #womenpower #empoweringwomen #empoweredwomen #epcotflowerandgardenfestival #epcotcenter #butterflys

We partnered with @disneybooks to celebrate the release of a brand new Pigeon book: The Pigeon HAS to Go to School! by Mo Willems. Since Mo Willems is Falynn’s favorite author of all time, we had to throw a pigeon themed party, featuring Pigeon’s favorite, HOT DOGS!  And we couldn’t stop there. Falynn thought it would be fun to create the ultimate kids hot dog bar, with lots of unusual, but kid-friendly toppings. Check out the blog today to hear all about it and learn how you can throw your own Pigeon-themed party for your little Mo Willems fan! #ReadMoWillems #disneyblogger #disneylifestyle #bookclub #bookobsessed #bookpic #booksbooksbooks #booklife #bookworms #bookstoread #summerjam #summer19 #pigeon #partytheme #hotdogs #kidspartyideas #childrensparties #kidsparty #partykids

When people find out that I’m a full-time blogger and have been solely supporting our family since April of 2018, they have so many questions. But the question I get asked the most is, 🍃 “How do I get started as a blogger?” My answer always starts the same. I want you to ask yourself one simple question. 🌸 Do I have the time to dedicate to a blog?  I’m not talking about an hour every other Saturday, or when it’s convenient. I’m talking about full-time job kinda time. If not, you’re probably not ready. Starting and maintaining a blog is A LOT of work and it requires a lot of dedication. Like everything in this world, if you can commit the time, and you put your all into it, you too can support your family this way. If I can do it, anyone can. 
Today on the blog, I’m sharing the first 5 steps you need to take to start making money as a blogger. It’s the beginning of a series of posts I’ll be sharing, that will hopefully help more people to get to where they want to be.

Summer is flying by, isn’t it? Not only have the girls been keeping up with their Summer reading, but they had read all of the books I got them by the end of June! Luckily, we partnered with @disneybooks and were able to get Serafina and the Seven Stars prior to its release today! Lucia had been anticipating the new book from the Serafina series and couldn’t wait to start reading it, and now you can grab a copy too! The #SerafinaSeries by Robert Beatty has been one of her favorites. In the new book, our heroine must confront deceptively dark and terrifying forces. Of all the books, this one is probably her favorite! You can get Serafina and the Seven Stars in stores now! You can also click on the link in our bio, where we’ve added the link to the new book, on Amazon.

Summer is flying by, isn’t...

No, your IG isn’t broken. Every time I talk openly about my anxiety disorder, I get the same response, from so many people.
“You're not broken.”
They're right, I'm not broken. It's not that I can't be fixed. It's not that I can't overcome my anxiety. It's not that there is no hope and I should just be thrown out like the pieces of my favorite porcelain mug that I accidentally dropped. I can be put back together and there's a great possibility that I will one day return to my former, non-anxiety-filled self.
Read more on today’s blog... I'm not broken, but I'm definitely glitching. (Link in bio or swipe up in stories)

Falynn is my hero. On a daily basis, she faces her fears head on. She lets us know that she’s a little afraid but always does it anyway, with very little to no push from me or Super Dad. You can often find her jumping up and down and yelling “I did it!” after she’s conquered another one. At 6 years old, she is my inspiration. Whenever anxiety gets the best of me, I need to replay every one of those moments where she didn’t let her fear and the unknown stop her from living her best life. .

Advice for My Daughters… Love, Dad

If You Love It, Share It!

We do our best as parents to teach our kids everything that they need to know to grow into good people.  We have 18 short years to teach them everything we know so that they don’t make the same mistakes we’ve made.  Then we pray that we haven’t forgotten anything.

Here is my advice for my daughters… Love, Dad.

  1. Love one another, even through the disagreements.
  2. Your family will always stand by you, no matter what.
  3. Don’t be too hard on yourself.
  4. Learn to say I’m sorry but make sure you mean it.
  5. Don’t judge yourself by the standard of others.
  6. Create your own definition of success.
  7. Set goals, achieve them and repeat.
  8. Don’t be afraid to jump in the driver’s seat.
  9. Play a group sport. You’ll cherish the memories and learn the power of teamwork.
  10. Know that everyone trips and falls and it’s ok. Just pick yourself up and keep going.
  11. Don’t live the life that’s expected of you, but live the life that is true to you.
  12. Strive to be a true leader in everything you do by having the confidence to stand alone and the courage to make the tough decisions.
  13. Always take the time and have compassion to listen to others.
  14. Perfect a silly dance and learn to laugh at yourself.
  15. Learn to cook and have a signature dish.
  16. Always clean up before you go to bed, so you will wake up and start the day in a clean home.
  17. Learn to love the skin you’re in.
  18. Pray in the morning when you wake, before every meal and before you fall asleep.
  19. Always tell the truth.  Honesty is so important.  A lie is a stone in your heart and soul.
  20. Never let a tragedy, circumstance or situation define you.
  21. Aim high. You can achieve anything you work hard enough for.
  22. Be kind to others. You never know what they might be going through.
  23. Always forgive, no matter how hard it may be.
  24. Give people an infinite number of reasons to love you.
  25. You may make mistakes, and that’s ok, just make sure you learn from them.
  26. Never let anyone tell you that you can’t do something and don’t be afraid to prove them wrong.
  27. Never settle for anything less than what you know you deserve.
  28. Try to see the positive in every situation.
  29. Learn to love the differences in others and learn from them.
  30. Be as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside.

If you could give advice to your kids, what would you tell them?

  • Catherine Santiago Jose

    This is so nice and such a beautiful and great advice to hear from a mother. You and my mom have the same advice given to me since when I was a child.

    • Heather
      February 28, 2019

      This is actually from their father ?

  • Courtney
    February 27, 2019

    Awwww what a sweet post to write!!! So agree with all of this advice

  • Rosey
    February 27, 2019

    Such great advice. I didn’t have a role model or father figure growing up, and even though I never had it, I still missed it.

  • Porsha Carr
    February 27, 2019

    I think my favorite tip was number 1-30 😛

  • Jasemine Denise
    February 27, 2019

    This is SO beautiful. I mean honestly, it made me tear up. I wish my dad was living so that he could give me his best advice. Thank you for sharing this. At 27, I needed a lot of this advice myself.

  • Kiwi
    February 27, 2019

    I hope you print these out for your daughters to see. This will resonate with them for the rest of their lives nothing like a fathers love.

  • Lilinha

    So many great advice for daughters. I wish I read it when I was younger. Very useful!

  • Tami
    February 27, 2019

    Dad has given such wonderful advice here. My favorite is #10: “Know that everyone trips and falls and it’s ok. Just pick yourself up and keep going.”

  • Deanna
    February 27, 2019

    I love this list so much! #26 is definitely my fave.

  • Bill Sweeney

    I really like this list. These are all things I’d say to my daughter too. Well thought out, sage wisdom from dad.

    Your adorable daughters. Great piece of advise. It was so heartening going through each of them. Truly appreciate.Loved it.

  • Sam
    February 27, 2019

    This is really great advice for many people. I hesitate about #15 though; not all of us are skilled in the kitchen & some people use that as a way to shame others, especially women (we’re told we can’t get a man if we can’t cook which is absurd & shouldn’t be pushed in 2019).

    • Heather
      February 27, 2019

      We choose to teach our daughters skills they need in life, including how to cook. This isn’t so that they will “get a man” but so that they can be independent and take care of themselves as they get older. My husband is actually the one in our home that does most of the cooking and this is how he was raised.

  • Theresa
    February 26, 2019

    This is such a lovely post! Great advice for all parents to pass down to their children. If more parents did, think of how much nicer the world would be to live in for everyone.

  • Danielle Wolter
    February 26, 2019

    these are great tips for anyone – i especially like the everyone trips and falls. it’s so true, but you have to drag yourself back up again!

  • Sara Welch
    February 26, 2019

    Love that you have highlighted learning from the differences in others, and to be kind to everyone as you may not know what they are going through. This advice is spot on!

  • Jacque Hooper
    February 26, 2019

    This is such inspirational advice to live by! You are doing a great job raising little girls who will become strong women!

  • Marcie W.
    February 26, 2019

    This is so sweet and solid advice for sure. I think 2, 17 and 23 are my favorite points.

  • Stacie
    February 26, 2019

    I adore this. I ADORE this! This should be framed and put in each of their rooms. It gives me all the feels.

  • Beth Pierce
    February 26, 2019

    I think you hit the nail on the head! Your very first piece of advice is so important. I don’t have a great relationship with my sister (not my choice), and it can be hard. Your girls are lucky to have you!

  • Jaye Shields
    February 26, 2019

    Great advice. I have a younger sister but because of the age gap, we’re not super close.

  • Sam | Away She Went
    February 26, 2019

    These are great lessons for kids and adults! I’m still working on some of those (I need a signature dish). My parents were always big on telling the truth and taking responsibility for your own actions.

  • Marta Rivera
    February 26, 2019

    Like Dad said, “Always tell the truth.” A woman is only as good as her word and her honor and that is something that this world today seems to take for granted. Tell the truth- even when it’s hard.

  • Paula @ I'm Busy Being Awesome
    February 26, 2019

    So many good messages from your husband, love the 15th ahah

  • Mimi
    February 26, 2019

    This advice is beautiful. My dad passed away a few years ago but I still keep his lessons close to my heart

  • Sandra
    February 26, 2019

    What a lovely post! As a parent myself, I have to agree, all of this advice is bang on 🙂
