Small Wins + Heart Sweater + Winter White

Yesterday was an awful day however it really opened up my eyes.  I had to dig deep to keep my sh** together.  Today I accomplished a lot and it felt really good.  I took Milan to the beach (it’s been awhile) and she said it was the best day ever.  We weren’t prepared or dressed for it at all but we had a such a great time together.

I was able to finally pick up her birth certificate which felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders.  OMG it’s been on the to-do list for 3 years and I never got around to it.  What is wrong with me?  So happy to check that off the list.  I also filmed two videos for Milan’s YouTube channel and would love it if you subscribed. 🙂

Each night before I put her to bed, we always talk about our wins for the day.  No matter how small they are, if it’s positive, it’s a win.  If she poops, it’s a win.  We woke up, it’s a win.  We had food to eat, it’s a win.  Last night she said these exact words “we went to Chipotle, now that’s a big win.” LOL This girl kills me.  I’m teaching her to always look at the good in each day and be grateful for our blessings.  It really is the key to my survival right now.

I’m taking it one day at a time and trying my best to stay positive.  Much easier said than done.  As hard as it may be at times, I have to move forward and believe that the best is yet to come.  I survived another day. XO

    Love & blessings

    • Great post. I’ve been there a few times in my life where I felt so broken where my heart literally hurt. My boys kept me going every single day. Milan is happy so you should celebrate a HUGE win. Trust me when I say you will look back to this time as a phase where you were pushed to grow. Sometimes those things that hurt us most come full circle and you will look at it differently. You will see it as a life lesson and will realize how much you have grown as a person. Hugs to you❤️

    • I don’t know the details of what you’re going through but I do know that some of the comments your making are very familiar.
      I found myself in a place of despair, hopelessness and depression like I’d never experienced within months of having a medical procedure and a new baby. It was SO hard and I really thought I wasn’t going to live through it. I’m still recovering but I’m not where I was. Please reach out if you want to talk. I would love to encourage you. This too shall pass!

  2. I’m so glad you had a good day and Milan thought it was the best day! Way to set a good example talking about your wins each day… appreciation🙏🏻 You’re outfit is amazing 😍 Stay strong and know you have support out here! 💐💐❤️

  3. You have Milan. That’s a HUGE win! Try to keep in mind that with each day that passes, you get a little stronger.

  4. Stay strong, Annie. You will emerge from this time in your life secure in the knowledge that you can take on anything and not only survive but thrive. The best is yet to come for you and Milan!

  5. All you have to do is take one day at a time. Before you know it, the pain does start to ease up and you are OK.
    Don’t be hard on yourself. Allow time to be sad or mad or whatever you are feeling. You have to go through whatever grieving process is needed in order to move on. You’re doing great! I remember how hard it was at one point in my life to just get out of bed ! It sucks!!! But you do become much stronger from it! You’ll surprise yourself plus you have your beautiful daughter to keep you going!! Hang in there!! 💕

  6. One day at a time is all anyone can do. Life’s too short to be unhappy. Look at all the great and positive things around you and know that it will always get brighter. Good luck to you and everything you do. Milan is adorable!

  7. Just keep taking life one day at a time. I love the quote “Be kind you never know the battles people are facing” Milan is such an adorable child. I love your blog
