Out Of Office!

Well, Your Good Enough Momma was 2/5 for Santa’s presents fitting in our stockings. What can ya do? 🤷🏼‍♀️

Wishing you pockets of joy, non sequitur championships, mini breaks to the grocery store, and solid exit strategies this holiday season, whatever your celebratory plans may be.

I will miss y’all for a few days but will be out of office for the Christmas holiday!

Much Love, #YourGoodEnoughMomma

Which balls are glass, momma?

I’m back from Cabo! This week, I’m reflecting on a common theme in trainings, with clients, and with friends who are parents, how do we give ourselves grace? How do we know where we can loosen our reigns just a little to help invite more space for parental sanity?

In a training with my mentor a few weeks ago, she quoted Nora Roberts as saying, “Some of the balls you have in the air are made of plastic & some are made of glass.

“If you drop a plastic ball, it bounces, no harm done. If you drop a glass ball, it shatters, so you have to know which balls are glass and which are plastic and prioritize catching the glass ones.”

I’m working hard in my own life to recognize what is vital, and what could maybe take a back seat, or what even could be done away with, even for a short period of time. I invite you to be intentional about reflecting on things you might be able to allow a loved one to help with, and perhaps, are you gatekeeping someone from taking more responsibility? It’s certainly not the case for everyone, but when I reflect upon my time as a parent, there are clear indicators of times I most definitely was gatekeeping.

Sustainable Self-Care Challenge!

I suggest we form a calming circle! @hocuspocusdisney

This is not a fashion page, but I am participating in @braveproviders Sustainable Self-Care Challenge this week, and I wanted to share that info and this piece with y’all!

I had initially wanted to make a Calming Circle shirt of sorts on my cricut, because duh, therapist, and also, love me some Hocus Pocus, but on a @joann_stores trip with a gal pal, I saw this fabric and diverted plans.

I am, at times, deeply guilty of crafting hubris, which has on more than one occasion seen me in a much worse mood than before I started a project. Fair enough.

But generally, sewing and crafting soothe me. I have a weekly standing zoom call with girlfriends every Wednesday where we process the previous week, discuss future plans, and generally have a lovely kiki, and I’m almost always exclusively sitting at my sewing table.

Rest is productive. 🗣️ Hear me say that! And also, making things with my own hands, especially things I or my family can wear, give me pride and calm the nerves.

What are some things YOU can try to incorporate for a Sustainable Self-Care Challenge moment?? #sustainableselfcarechallenge #braveproviders

Anniversary Times!

I started my social worker journey at Fordham University on this day 11 years ago!

Yes! Walk away!

Fall Semester Begins!

Another semester begins! I’m on the Lawrence campus this semester. I wanted to get the full college campus experience, even if just for one semester. Edwards campus is only 8 minutes away, so it’s tempting to cut that drive down to a third of the time!

This semester, I’m teaching SW810 Clinical Practice Strategies I! First lecture done and dusted, feeling confident and optimistic for a great semester ahead!

Rock Chalk! 💙❤️ @kuschoolofsocialwelfare
