http://drbonniesrelationshiprehab.com/2012/10/ 1 year of realizing I can’t make everyone happy

Of becoming more the mom, wife and person I want to be 

Of taking my happy pills every day 

Of not being ashamed of needing pills and therapy to be happy 

Of standing up for myself. Of not being someone else’s doormat. 

Of learning how to communicate better 

Of learning that my depression and anxiety do not define me 

One year of being proud of myself 

Of learning mindfulness, meditation & yoga. 

More at peace

Knowing what helps me calm down. 

Being able to ask for help. And not be ashamed of not being able to do it all myself. 

I love that in my 30s I’m finally understanding and taking care of ME 

Learning boundaries 

Of learning it’s ok to say no 

My mental health is more important 

 

This is Six

This is six 

The age of Barbie’s and horses 

First sleepovers 

Girl Scouts 

Coloring 

This is the age of Nail polish and hair bows 

First diaries 

Non-cartoon movies and tv shows 

Staying up late 

Riding the big kid rides 

Playing school 

Six is sequins and sneakers 

It’s still pigtails but also makeup 

It’s magical 

It’s new friends 

It’s bikes with no training wheels 

It’s still singing and dancing like no ones watching 

But it’s the first, Mom 🙄🙄 I’m too old or big for that 

It’s homework and computers but still juice boxes and packed lunches.

It’s reading and writing.

It’s the sweet spot. The middle. It’s special. 

This is six.
