Hands Free Love

 ShuGar Fix Mondays is a weekly inspiration series because Mondays deserve an extra dose of pretty. For more ShuGar Fix Mondays, click here!

Lately, I’ve been trying to practice the art of letting go. It’s not easy for this self-professed perfectionist, but I am a work-in-progress. Images which inspire this sense of freedom that are dancing in my head are balloons (or as ShuGar Boy calls them “BaBoons”).

Below is some imagery that reflects on the beauty of embracing life and relinquishing control.

The All You Need is Love Project is a movement to inspire more love on this planet. The more we come together, the more love we can share. Join the revolution here!

It’s been a while since I last posted an All You Need is Love Project post – it feels good to be back! Thank you for all the love shared with me about yesterday’s Postpartum Depression post – I am always amazed at the support from the mommy world.

I wanted to follow up with a more practical post about how we all can pull ourselves out of our own funks because, let’s face it, life has its share of ups and downs so we need to discover what can pull us up. And, I do believe the strength should start within us – It allows for less disappoint if we constantly depend on others for our happiness.

Mommy’s Corner is a weekly series exploring our journey in becoming parents, our love for our ShuGar baby, and general topics related to mommyhood.

Sweet ShuGar Loves,

Hi! I’ve missed you these past few months. I needed time away to gather my thoughts and process all that has been going on in my life since becoming a mommy. If you follow me on instagram (my fave social media platform), you most likely saw my post explaining where I’ve been. There is so much to unpack in that post and I will be doing so in subsequent blog posts. For now, I will share what has plagued me for almost two years: Postpartum depression.

It’s not the fairy tale side of motherhood by far, but it is the raw and authentic side that I have lived. I share to not say all mothers go through this – in fact, I would hope most don’t. Yet, it has been my truth and on my blog this is what I do – I share my heart. Allow me to open up about how postpartum depression (PPD) has affected me.
