And the sun sets on another Wednesday. Feels like it’s been a full week already. Here’s a little breather to celebrate halfway to the weekend.#socalsunset #naturereboot #peacefulocean #pressingpause
#Psalm 1:1–2 is a particular passage 📖 that we have not only memorized but embraced as our #family maxim.
.
We come back to it often to remind ourselves to walk in wisdom and to remember the promises God gives us if we do so. We don’t want our children to forget that. We want them to remember that when we walk in wisdom, we are like those beautiful trees that have an endless supply of water and are overflowing with fruit. We do our best to make that #Scripture come alive for them.
.
As #moms, we need to remember to keep cheering our children on as they learn God’s Word. Don’t give up. Don’t quit moving forward. Let’s keep putting one step in front of the other and teach our children to do the same. 🙏🏽💕

I’ve had such a lovely 24 hours, just me and my Mama, doing our fave, chatting, 🥂, camping 💕 We worked out we haven’t done this since before I’d had the kids...I feel like everything is changing at the moment and as we’re coming out of babyhood, we’re getting back to ourselves a bit. So hang in there mamas, your time does come 😘 #campingisthebest #mumanddaughtertime #takingiteasy #goslow #loveyourmamaself #itdoesgeteasier #mamatime #pressingpause #cheersmum #doulaoffcall

Tonight, this is needed.
The past few weeks have been manic. Massaging, teaching, planning and prepping for new classes, friends 40th birthday party, weekend break away with the family, end of school looming, teacher presents to make, secondary schools to see, parents evening to attend, overtired, sweaty children to comfort and console, lunch boxes to make, uniforms to sort, household to run, night shifts to work, dog to walk, builders making a mess.......zero time amidst all of this has been made for me to just take 5. If I'm honest, I'm on my knees. So today is a Tuesday, I'm pouring myself a glass of much needed wine and I don't give two hoots. I'm sitting on the sofa and I'm putting my feet up and watching a really shit film, then going to bed.
To all those mamas out there spinning the thousands of plates and just getting through each day, I salute you, I see you and I feel your pain. Please make time for you as a priority. Pour yourself that glass of wine, run yourself that bath, go for that run or yoga class and eat that bar of chocolate. YOU DESERVE IT!!! #runningonempty #endoftheschoolyear #busybusy #ownbusiness #ownboss #bossmum #workingmama #maketimetostop #drinkingwineonaweekday #dontcare #wineisneeded #pressingpause

Hi! My name is Kim and I am a recovering perfectionist, control freak, indecisive and overly anxious mess. 👋🏻
.
I was a worry wart and suffered from panic attacks since I was a kid. I had separation anxiety issues so I never went to camps or even slept over at other people’s houses often, and even at the age of 16 I was afraid to leave my mom to go on a vacation with my best friend and her family which any other teen would’ve been pumped about. That’s why when I turned 17 and my mom died, I fell apart.
.
I wasn’t okay, at all, and I was lost in grief for a very long time. I felt abandoned, lost without her, unsure of my identity in the world without the person who brought me into it and was always there to calm my every fear and answer every question. I developed a deep need to feel in control as everything else in my life spun out of control. Enter an eating disorder and my control freak tendencies.
.
My dad raised me from there and he was raised by a perfectionist. He never felt like anything he did was good enough for his dad and then became a perfectionist himself. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree and as a result, I feel like I’m never good enough and often make others feel like nothing they do is good enough either. It’s terrible, perfectionism is like a disease.
.
But since I started a lifestyle change 3.5 years ago that incorporates lots of personal development (PD), I’ve been doing lots of hard work to change my ways. It’s been a long, hard road, because changing life long habits & thought processes isn’t easy. Some days you take a step forward and then ten back. But it’s so worth it!
.
Lately I’ve seen SO much growth and progress in this area, finally! But then this morning someone sent some mean text messages that made me feel like I havent changed at all and never will. I felt so discouraged & defeated, like all my works been for nothing and there’s no point in trying.
.
Ever been there?
.
🔉If so, hear me now:🔈
You are NOT who you once were.
You ARE a new creation.
You are NOT a mess. You are simply a work in progress.
And HE who began a good work in you will bring it to completion. 🙌🏻

Dear God, when the lies speak louder than the truth, when I’m tempted to think of myself in a way that is neither healthy nor true, remind me both of who I am and to whom I belong. Amen. 🙏🏻 #fitwithfaith

There are a lot of things people don’t really tell you about the postpartum road. Things that are completely UNDER emphasize.
.
It’s true, “you forget about the pain once the baby is in your arms!”… however I feel like I wasn’t prepared to how uncomfortable it is. Don’t fret though, there were so many things I used that helped ease the discomfort, aches, and pains.
.
My goal going through the postpartum phase was to get as close to natural as I possibly could.
.
In my postpartum blog post I shared things that I ACTUALLY used that helped with recovery.
.
1. Natural products using herbs and natural oils are a sure way to ease discomfort. You can make products yourself or purchase them. My favorite product was perineal balm from @earthmamaorganics.
2. I had my placenta encapsulated and made in to a tincture to help ease the rollercoaster of postpartum emotions and to help my milk supply.
3.
Padsicles are a MUST and I share how to make them in the blog post as well.
4.
A baby being born puts pressure on your bottom, agreed?? okay good… so this shouldn’t come as a surprise.
.
Hemmeroids is an icky word no one likes to talk about and probably doesn’t tell you about prior to delivery.
💜💜I talk ALL ABOUT IT and natural ways to relieve any discomfort.
.
Tag a new momma or momma to be that would benefit from having a list of natural ways to ease any discomfort after childbirth.
.

Definitely should be sleeping right now as we will be laying my great-grandma to rest in the morning. Tomorrow will be a very long, rough and emotional day for my family as we celebrate her life. She was 87 years old, my babies great-great-grandma giving us 5 generations of amazing women. Tonight I felt God calling me to read, to pray, to know that she is at peace and wants us to be, as well. Tonight I need to press pause and breathe even though it’s late and exhaustion has kicked in. For tonight I need to mentally prepare myself to be strong for my family tomorrow.

Why is working out such a struggle to fit in?
.
Today I fit in a 30 minute workout that I’ve been talking about for probably the last 2 months. “I need to workout. Tomorrow is the day.” And tomorrow comes and goes.
.
I don’t need to workout to lose weight. I need to workout to improve muscle and core strength, especially as this little nugget packs on the pounds.
.
By the end of the day my back hurts from lifting, nursing, and chasing a now rolling everywhere little guy.
.
I’m calling it quits on “starting Monday...” and starting on a Saturday. Day 1 complete & I feel better already.
.
What are you putting off until Monday? Do you have any accounts you follow for workout motivation? Please share them with me below!
.
I love @fitnessjewell because she makes working out part of her daily life... wherever she is, she fits it in.
.
I also love @alexajeanfitness because working out at home, especially when it’s 114 degrees outside is more convenient. 🌻

Hustling Too Hard

My work is thrilling, but it can sometimes be mind consuming. This last month I've taken on more work then I should, and now my health is really feeling it. I'm so inspired to paint all that I've dreamed up, and I relish those moments I get to myself, but sometimes, even when I put my paint brush down, it's hard to just "be home" when my studio is feet away and I'm still thinking about the next thing on my list. Anyone else struggle that?
🌴 The last few days I've taken a hiatus, and been thinking heavily about intentional time on all the important areas of my life, to have a healthier and stronger tomorrow. I don't know about you, but I am the type of person that needs routine, especially in this season of my life.
☀ What's your vote on schedules? Maybe life's got too many different variables in your home, or maybe routines are too strict for your wild and spontaneous soul. How do you make time and balance your world? I'd love to hear what works for you!

Some people need to go to the gym, some can do the whole mindfulness / meditation thing. With busy lives and jobs it’s important to know what your “thing” is that let’s you switch off and reset. Mine is usually arts and crafts. I love reading too but there’s nothing quite like sitting with scissors and glue sticks and my calligraphy pens. These took bloody ages (and lots of help from my ever-patient sister) but they’ve given me lots of joy and time away from my many lists and phone and everything else that makes life go far too fast 💕

HELP! Mommas, tell me your baby proofing tips!!
.
Spent all day chasing this Rollie pollie all over the house today. Yesterday he officially learned how to roll and has been rolling non-stop.
.
We’re anticipating a move soon, so I put off baby proofing thinking I could wait until we were in our new place. Waiting isn’t an option anymore.
.
I don’t even know where to begin with baby proofing. It seems like I look around and everything looks like baby trouble.
.
We also need a gate or two for stairs in our current and new place. Recommendations welcome!

The last few days I have just felt myself slipping. I have seen some things that have hurt my heart and made me question myself as a person. A lot of negative thoughts of what I did wrong, why I am not liked, etc. It's a cycle I know all too well. I realized that it's just part of life. We grow close to people and sometimes we grow apart. I am not a bad person because of it. It still hurts because I hold on to what could have been and what was. Taking time for myself and journaling these last few days has really helped me from taking these moments so hard. And having Matt help me through them as well and making me see that I am not what my mind is telling me I am. 🤷 I can't wait to dive more into this book and write things out instead of keeping them bottled up. Here's to a good last half of 2018!

“You’ve changed” used to have such a negative connotation, but now “you’ve changed” has become my greatest sense of pride.
.
Changed to bring better.
Changed to do better.
Changed to illuminate the light inside of this little boy.
Nourish. Love. Give.
.
This little man entering the world has changed me deep down.
.
I’ve prayed harder than I’ve ever prayed. Researched more than I’ve ever researched. Loved like I’ve never loved.
.
I hope he’s always a light worker... bringing his brightness in to any room he enters.

Well after a lonnnnng day, this mama is having some time to herself watching the England World Cup match 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 As a busy working mum, it can be so hard to find time to myself to just press pause on life and I am so guilty of putting myself at the bottom of the pile and spend my evenings re-settling my baby (why won’t you sleep!?) and then cleaning and prepping for the next day. But not tonight my friends, time to carve out some time for me. Enjoying some peace and quiet with my new Mama mug from @bohemianhearts ☕️

“Reading gives life more life.”—unknown
📚 
It’s no secret.  I love a good book. As a matter of fact, I usually have one (maybe two 🤫) tucked away in my car or bag. I prefer holding a book in my hand, turning the pages, highlighting and taking notes.

What was the last good book you read?

Man this spoke to me this morning. Sometimes we forget how truly blessed we are. Life gets crazy, kids get rowdy, dishes and laundry pile up... and we take for granted our duties as a wife mother and home maker. I’m so guilty of grumbling about the dishes I have to wash or my kids being jerks for the 2nd day in a row. But I challenge myself and you to look at everything from an place of humility and blessing. It makes the hard days easier and the workload happier ❤️ happy Tuesday my friends

Don’t let #fear keep you from walking by faith! Don’t play it safe. Take a step, and when you do, you will find that God is there. Let your obedi­ence be the place where God shows up and does a great work in you and through you. 🙏🏽🙌🏽💕

Thank you to everyone who has made the switch to support me here at @naturalsimplemom!

For new friends, let me take time to introduce myself.
.
I’m a new Momma of a 5month little boy who has completely stolen our hearts.
.
Prior to getting pregnant with this little guy, I faced two miscarriages that brought me to what felt like my rock bottom.
.
After my second miscarriage I began to research the possibility of #toxins in my environment causing fertility struggles.
.
The more I researched, the more my passion grew for a #nontoxic, #natural lifestyle for my family.
.
In the last year and a half, I’ve grown to love organic/local food and researching how “society norm” is harming us as a culture.
.
I’ve worked diligently at finding safer ways to live life and ditched toxic chemicals in our household. It’s been a year and a half and I STILL have work to do.
.
My blog has become my outlet for sharing the journey as I navigate our little family to a nontoxic lifestyle, especially my son!

First cup of coffee for the day - PD - feet up - World Cup... this #bosslady is actually relaxing - and honestly it feels quite weird!
.
I struggle to shut it down. To take a break, a step back - cuz that mile long list of to-do’s, haunts my mind. Are you like this too?
.
Relaxing tends to make me more anxious - and I have to switch that feeling! Sometimes you just have to reset, so you can be more productive tackling that never ending list! Right?
.
Does anyone else struggle to just chill - feel guilty about it? I’m really trying to work on just being - and know it’s ok to not always be doing something!🤪
.
So here’s to actually finishing a cup of coffee and finding joy in this moment!✨

Life with triplets is busy, loud, messy and sometimes overwhelming and there are moments where I wish I could just press pause or even rewind! This book (recommended by my SIL!) has been a great resource for me this summer and encouragement that in the midst of chaos, it is important to press pause and spend time with Jesus, even if I am getting interrupted 1000 times!! 😂😅😘

Life with triplets is busy, loud, messy and sometimes overwhelming and there are moments where I wish I could just press pause or even rewind! This book (recommended by my SIL!) has been a great resource for me this summer and encouragement that in the midst of chaos, it is important to press pause and spend time with Jesus, even if I am getting interrupted 1000 times!! 😂😅😘 - - - #lindsense  #jesusloveandlipstick  #pressingpause  #tripletmama  #daxgordon  #liplove  #lipgirl

I am a work in progress, there’s no doubt - but it’s so neat to know I have control to believe and feel happy & healthy.

Get out there and be empowered to kick butt today girl!✨

...the calm before the storm...a moment of peace before the crazy(aka my studio opening!). Next week I'm taking at least 1 day and doing absolutely nothing! For the last month I don't think I've stopped moving and it was made very clear by how my back snap/crackled/popped in child's pose. So if you see me doing the opposite...kindly remind me to follow my own self care advice. Sometimes I forget I don't have to do it all in one day.  #childspose #selfcare #pressingpause #yoga #followingmyownadvice

No makeup. Unwashed hair. Pjs.
.
This is what I look like 90% of the time. In fact, this is what most stay at home moms look like the majority of the time.
.
What you DON’T see is the fire and passion within me. There’s this stigma that stay at home moms are to keep the house clean, cook fresh meals, keep the kids alive, and please their husbands. That’s pretty much it.
.
Everyone else’s needs come first, right? Then what few minutes are left at the end of each day are filled with exhaustion and overwhelm. Because you must not be “momming” right if you’re not losing your mind, right? 🤦🏼‍♀️
.
What if I told you there’s a better way? What if YOUR needs came first and instead of feeling stuck, behind, anxious, exhausted...you felt like you were totally kicking ass as a mom and spouse? What if you had enough energy and time left over to do what YOU love and to work on YOUR goals and dreams?! .
I want to challenge all stay at home moms today to do SOMETHING for themselves. Read, run, take a bubble bath, go to the movies, let go of pressure to be everything to everyone, grab coffee with a friend, watch Netflix, exercise, journal, spend time alone with God, fix your hair...ANYTHING that brings on a sense of self-love and fulfillment.
.
You deserve it, friend. 💕

Favorite way to start the day. Devotional + Bulletproof Coffee. || Today’s reading in Pressing Pause was so good. Colossians 3:23-24. What do you *have to* do today? How can you do WHATEVER it is ENTHUSIASTICALLY for the LORD? || There’s so much in life I *get to* do. I’ll be focusing on perspective and gratitude as I tackle my to-do list with an attitude of appreciation for all we’ve been given. #todolist #devotional #morningmotivation #bulletproof #Godisgood #Heprovides #attitudeofgratitude #grateful #pressingpause #momlife #thisishowimom #endometriosis #hypothyroidism #autoimmunedisease

Pausing.
.
There are ALWAYS moments in my day when I began to feel the pressure to finish tasks, get things done, hustle, hustle, hustle.
.
But I KNOW I don’t do my best work with that pressure on myself. The pressure of doing everything and being everything for everyone. So, I pause. I pause OFTEN.
.
Whether it’s to read, have a cup of coffee outside on my swing, go for a walk, play some cheerful music, or simply close my eyes and practice some gratitude...I do what I need to do in that moment to center myself.
.
Do you pause daily? Have you ever even thought about the importance of doing so when overwhelm creeps up?!

Reminded today to always remember to love and nurture the relationship that brought our baby into this world. Without my husband, there is no family. #Family #Peace #PressingPause #100DaysofPressingPause
