Where Have You Been?!

Where Have You Been?!

Since the last time I posted, life has been coming at me FAST!

Let me catch y’all up to speed on what has been going on in my life up until now.

In January, I got my provisional license to counsel and have been working on my hours towards full licensure. (Yay!)

I obtained a job conducting group therapy with clients that suffer from severe mental health diagnoses such as Schizophrenia, Bipolar, Major Depression, etc. Let me just say, I have been loving it! Although it is draining and only mildly rewarding as far as seeing progress from the clients, the amount of knowledge that I am adding into my counseling bucket, along with the sheer entertainment of the clients’ unfiltered comments, far outweighs the agonizing exhaustion that I feel on a daily basis.

I had an amazing Mother’s Day/Mental Health awareness brunch event! The amount of work that went into the event was absolutely worth every bit of the doubt, fear and frustration that I had while planning the event.

I will have a separate post to discuss the details of the event and how it came together. I must say that this being my first event that I have organized and sold tickets for; I am EXTREMELY proud of myself! BUT, I can’t take all the credit. My food blogger friend,  Brunchin’ With Gelle collaborated with me on this amazing initiative and helped to pull it all together.

All of this has been taking place while a little 4-year old boy runs around screaming “mommy” and telling me how hungry he is every 5 minutes. Not to mention, I have been trying my hand at having a social life which to be honest is a job all on its own. *insert tired GIF*

But now that the event is over and I have some of my time back, I plan on getting back on #MomCrushMonday posts and highlighting some dope moms, as well as bringing y’all some tips, tricks and vents to indulge in!

I appreciate all of the love and support and for supporting me through these silent times. I am working on my consistency so I can continue to bring some good content that hopefully will help in some way.
