It has been a looooong time since I introduced myself around here sooooooo HI! 👋🏽 I’m Lauren and I like to play dress up and try on dresses that I have no place to wear 🤣 I am a SAHM to two kiddos that simultaneously drive me crazy and make me love them even more. 👧🏻👶🏻 I love to travel and have a international and domestic bucket list 😂 (number one spot in the international list is Greece and domestic is to drive an RV thru the badlands). 🙌🏽 My celebrity crush is a tie between Bradley Cooper, Zac Efron, and Ryan Gosling. Okay, and we might as well throw David Beckham in there too 😍 Your turn! Tell me something random about you! 😬 http://liketk.it/2AAAM #liketkit @liketoknow.it.

HELLO SPRING! 🌸 Adding a little bit of Spring vibes to my feed with this sweet little throwback. 💕🥰.

HELLO SPRING! 🌸 Adding a little bit of Spring vibes to my feed with this sweet little throwback. 💕🥰 ...

Feelings | “Get your shit together!”, “Don’t make such a fuss about it!“, „Stop being dramatic!“, „You are overreacting!“, “Why aren’t you normal?”, “Snap out if it!”
.
Did you ever hear or say any of this? If so, I would like you to become very conscious about what these statements actually say. All of these tell a person, a child or even an animal to STOP FEELING.. .
.
And what happens when creatures with feelings suppress them? Yes, pain, endless amounts of pain. This pain shows up in all kinds of dimensions, all kinds of forms, all kinds of colors. It’s a cruel act to be told or to tell someone to get their shit together when they are hurting and feeling a need to express it and let it out. We are meant to feel because when we feel through whatever needs to be addressed, then we are able to let go of it, release it and heal 🕊 But if we suppress, we end up burying it deep inside of us which then some day eats us alive.
.
I can’t stress this enough for parents especially because we are the only ones who can teach our kids how to feel through difficult emotions and reassure them that it’s ok, that it’s human. Do not ever tell them to toughen up or to stop crying already (except if they do it stubbornly to create drama), give them the space they need. You can tell them something along the lines like “I understand you are angry/sad/in pain, maybe you want to take a few moments to cuddle up together or to find a quiet space to cry.” You know, just something that tells them that it’s ok to feel this way even if you are uncomfortable and feeling helpless at the same time (me! 🙋🏼‍♀️ every single day!). I know it’s hard to see your child hurting, but it’s a part of life and won’t ever go away!
.
I am not telling you this because I have perfected this, I wanted to write this down to remind myself and others because I learned about this in a book not too long ago.
.
So what do you all think about this? Ever had this experience? How did it make you feel?.

On boring hair days spice up your look with some accessories!

I picked these gold bobby pins up at @target and pinned my unruly side back with 4 or 5 spaced about an inch apart.

Have fun with them by crisscrossing or making a solid gold row using 10 or 15. 
Check my make up look posted in my stories ✨
