These are my Confessions

We need to start this off with your mind in the same space as mine, so if you didn’t instantly hear Usher, Confessions Part II, in your mind when you read my title, please click on the link to get that sweet voice singing in your ears so we can be on the same page here.  Although, to be clear this isn’t some sort of illegitimate child/baby daddy pop up out of the blue situation.  The perk of being a woman, anything that comes out …

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all you hustling mamas out there! I knew that I wanted to blog today but seriously could not focus on one topic. I was all over the place with my thoughts this past week so this morning I decided to journal throughout the day and just see what comes to be. So here we go … I vividly remember being preggy with Maddi and wondering, worrying and dreaming about what type of mom I was going to be. Was I going …

Fakin It With Zoom

If you were to send me a zoom invite, and force me to turn on a camera into my little world, let me tell you what you would see; some fake ass shit!  Zoom to me is the stuffed bra of our new COVID lives.  If you really tried to see what’s under the shirt, all tissue! I set up my computer at my kitchen table, which is in the back corner of the room. It makes it so much easier for me to make …

To All Those I’ve Loved Before COVID-19

I don’t know about you, but I am missing the shit out of my normal life.  Like COME ON ALREADY! I feel like, for everyone, there are about 50 shades of handling the “stay at home order” depending on how strictly you are following this.  In the Lieberstein household we are in a pretty severe lock down.  I don’t have anyone with a compromised immune system, just a feeling that we typically have the worst kind of luck.  Like I would be the one bitch …

Stop “should-ing” All Over Yourself

I don’t know about you, but throughout the day I find myself in a complete “should” storm.  I should be focused more on work, I should be focused more on the kids and their e-learning, I should have more patience, I should learn to sew, I should get up early to run, I shouldn’t have eaten pizza for lunch: and the list of “should” could go on forever. I have a feeling I’m not alone, so let’s agree to take our steaming piles of “should” …

Detox: mind, body and spirit

Detox: a process or period of time in which one abstains from or rids the body of toxic or unhealthy substances; detoxification. Oh January, January, January … my month to pause, reset and free my mind. There was nothing specific that was unhealthy and it wasn’t that I was unhappy. I was just wound up so tight that I wasn’t able to think clearly anymore. I didn’t even realize it but there were little clues. I was too quick to judge, snappy and my mood …

A Happy Mother Quote

Why you work, mama?

Recently my oldest, curious and sweet, asked me, “why you work mama?” as we were getting ready for bed.  Every night we play, read, talk about how our days were and then after he climbs in bed he likes to ask questions. That night was no different.  Asking why vampires have to cough into their elbows, if the bats will get him, what happens to bad guys and then BAM. Although his question was literal and out of sheer curiosity, as they always are, it …

This Roller Coaster of a Life

I recently had one of those days with a really high high, and then later the same day it plunged to a low low. I can’t say I enjoy these days; I’m more of an even keeled, keep it in the middle kind of person. My high came first. I have a family history of breast cancer, so every year I get a diagnostic mammogram. I started getting these at the age of 30. It’s nice to get the results right away, and breath a …

Friday Night Confessions

I have a couple confessions to make.  First, we are almost two weeks into the new year and I haven’t been sticking to my resolutions already!  Ugh! I really wanted to make myself start asking for what I need, for what I want, and I’m not going to lie to you, I have been kind of a chicken shit about it.  I think we have established a safe space here, so we need to be real with each other. I am, however, going to keep …

Pause.

Where do I begin, simply with this blog and more complicated with my career.  Pause.   Let me catch you up.  My position at Dealer Inspire was eliminated.  This did not catch me off guard but nonetheless a slight punch to my ego. Long story short, Dealer Inspire was an extremely successful start-up thanks to a one of a kind dynamic leader and a diverse bunch of super intelligent hard working individuals that positioned us to be acquired by Cars.com.  Fast forward eighteen months, both Human …
