Grocery shopping with babies….is like shopping with 5% of my brain.

Grocery shopping with babies….is like shopping with 5% of my brain.

I took two of the triplets to the grocery. This is the first time i’ve done this. I took all of them when they were tiny babies and I was pushing their stroller with one hand and pulling the cart with the other. It was a shit show. They are able to sit up on their own now and our local grocery story has a double cart so off I went. Here’s the problem: I literally have no idea what groceries I just bought.I seriously wasn’t paying a bit of attention.60% of my brain was thinking, “oh my god they are so cute”, coupled by taking tons of pictures and video.  30% was having “the usual” conversations with admirers. 5% was focused on the food I needed to put in the cart. The last 5% was the normal garbage that goes on in my head like…. I love chocolate, Embrace Your Body event, I want a cinnamon roll, I can’t wait to lift tomorrow, What fun activity are Jude and I going to do tomorrow, why do ppl keep asking me if Jillian and Reid are identical- she is wearing a pink and blue shirt and pink pants?? I can’t wait to get the groceries out and see what I got!! – Stacey (Creator of Project Reveal) Inspire Women... Share...

Twirl Curl Tutorial

I wouldn’t consider this a “Reveal” per-say…but I thought- “what the heck, i’ll post it anyway” 🙂 A few friends that don’t live close to me, asked if I would show them how I curl my hair. So I made a tutorial a few months ago. Here it is! Inspire Women... Share...
Mending Mind and Heart- PTSD from Pregnancy

Mending Mind and Heart- PTSD from Pregnancy

A story about my struggle with PTSD from the traumas of pregnancy with the triplets. “I felt like I was having an out of body experience. I know now that God numbs us during those times. If I had felt all the true emotional and spiritual pain of that moment I think my heart would have burst.” ~ At times, I’ve been feeling emotional and crazy, like level 10 on the crazy scale.  About three months ago I felt it coming on, and I knew exactly why. It was the first time since the triplets had been home that I was able to take a breath. I wasn’t in emergent survival mode instead just regular survival mode. And my mind and heart finally had time to slow down. With that pause, all of a sudden – BAM! My mind  started running through the traumas of my pregnancy like scenes of a movie, over and over. I would have flashbacks; I just cried and cried all the time. I was feeling things that I hadn’t had a chance to feel before. It wasn’t baby blues; it felt a little bit like anxiety but different. I had finally started feeling and dealing with the emotions of my pregnancy traumas. I couldn’t shake the thoughts or feelings, they were haunting me.  I knew what I needed to do –I started talking about it and reaching out to people who have been through this but the pain wasn’t great enough yet to take action. I mean, why would I do something right away? (insert sarcasm) I have to wait until I am really uncomfortable to do...

I had to go to the bottom of my life to understand that I had a God-sized hole.

I had to go to the bottom of my life to understand that I had a God-sized hole.

I had a hole in my heart and was trying to fill it with EVERYTHING but God. As a young girl, I filled it with running and food obsession. In my late teens and early twenties, I filled it with men, alcohol and the lights and sounds of the clubs. In my late twenties, I spent most of my time trying to fill that hole with the things other people had. I knew what you had would be just the thing to make me feel better, make me happier, make me whole. I wanted your car, your job, your clothes … You get the idea. Let me tell you a little story about what this looked like in my life. I had a friend that got engaged and her diamond ring was big. I also wanted to get engaged so badly and with a big diamond. It was all I could think about. I literally couldn’t stand it and therefor couldn’t stand her. My jealously and envy were out of control. But I only wanted that big diamond because I thought it would make me feel important, confident and attractive. I became so cold and distant from her that I couldn’t see straight. And I couldn’t see that this resentment was only hurting me. Someone told me once that resentments are like ME drinking poison and waiting for YOU to die. I could relate to that; that’s exactly where I was. During this time I didn’t like women; I didn’t feel comfortable around them. I was jealous and felt inferior to most of them. I know now that was my own insecurities roaring through me. I took everything...
