I DO NOT QUIT. 🤚🏻 But if you would have met me a year and a half ago, I identified myself as exactly the opposite- a “quitter.” 💔 My entire childhood (and then into adulthood) I would QUIT everything. 😔 If I wasn’t the best for example. I would QUIT if it was too much work, too hard (or my favorite)— didn’t give me the results I wanted fast enough. 🙄 This journey has COMPLETELY changed my mindset about pushing pass that temptation to throw in the towel. 👊🏻 For one- I was in a place where I was allowed to struggle! I could scream and cry 😭 or have hard days— but still push forward. And those days I heard the lies “you’re a failure Leslie” 👿 - I had a TRIBE to replace them with TRUTH✨ - that I was brave, strong and beautiful. Slowly, I began to believe it. ❤️ If you’re at all where I was just a year and a half ago, I beg you to make this happen for yourself too. ❤️ Life will only be as good as your mindset and I’d love to show you how I completely changed mine for good. 📲💌 • • #bethechange #beinspired #depressionquotes #anxietyquotes #anxietyrelief #anxietygirl #momswithpurpose #momswithanxiety #blendedfamilylove #blendedfamily #coparenting #coparentingsucks #blendedfamilylife #coffeeislife #starbucksgirl #morecoffeeplease #ilovejesusbuticussalittle #metoomovement #stepmomproblems #momhustle #internetfriends #pnwmom #farmerswife

When we have THOSE nights... . You know, the nights that the baby has tummy issues AGAIN and you have to hold him just right, all night, waking up every 30 minutes or so and you feel like you’re going to lose your mind? . Those are the nights that You crave control. . Those are the nights That you do things like this...you grab the food that wouldn’t even be in the house but it was just Valentine’s Day and, here they are. . And You eat the entire bag. And it wasn’t that good. And you wish You could say “I don’t know why I did it!” But the truth is, I do...and I know why you’re doing it too. . Because you’re TIRED. Because you lack control. This experience with baby number two has been the most trying time of your life and as much as you love him you crave space, time and the ability to make your own decisions. . And apparently this is the decision you make. In the wee hours when you are so tired you feel sick and you just want to cry... . It’s dairy that you shouldn’t have which makes you feel like a rebel. It’s against your lifestyle and goals which makes you feel, at the time, like you’re really one upping everyone. But really, you just crave control. In a hurricane where you have none. . And I want to tell you something... . It’s okay. . Because today you’re going to drink that water, you’re going to eat right, you’re going to workout and you’re going to control what you can in the beautiful awake hours when everything seems like it’s going to be okay. And when that 8pm-8am witching hour comes again tonight, you’ll be prepared. . I mean It doesn’t happen all the time. If it does that is a whole different conversation. But it does sometimes. And Mama, I’m with you. And it’s going to be okay. ✌🏼🙏🏼❤️ • • • #momonamission #boymom #momoftwo #savealltheanimals #blendedfamilylove #lindseygrayfitness #momswithtattoos #girlswithtats #halfsleeves #cosleepingmama #babywearingmama #postpartumjourney #breastfeedingmama #glutenfreemama #dairyfreemama #sleepdeprivedmama #allthingsholistic #holistichealth #holistichealing #bingerecovery #hairstylistlife #leadershipjunkie #chocolateeverything #latenightsnacking #bingealert #chocolatecoveredraisins #krogerfind

Comment from SteppingThrough:

Gender plays a significant role in how you are accepted as a stepparent. The reality is that it’s easier for the guys than us gals. . . Wednesday Martin, PhD and author of ‘Stepmonster’, explains why: 👇 •Women have more internal and external expectations on them to take on a ‘mothering’ role and behave in loving ways to their stepchildren. This creates loyalty conflicts for the children who see these maternal behaviors as a betrayal of their mother. Men are less likely to feel the need or pressure to take on a paternal role towards their stepchildren. Their stepchildren then have less internal conflict about betraying their biological father and are able to openly like and even love their stepdad. . . •The influence of biological mothers plays a major role in the relationship between a stepmother and her stepkids. Mothers tend to be more involved in the day-to-day parenting of their children in their own homes and in the homes of their ex-partners than fathers are. Mothers are more visible to their children even when they are not living together. Divorced mothers may also be less likely to provide their children permission to like their new stepparent than a divorced father is. This permission from the biological parent allows a child to positively engage with a stepparent, it lessens loyalty binds and often times it is available to stepfathers but not stepmothers. . . Separated and repartnered fathers are at times more lenient around discipline with their children. This can inadvertently result in the setting up of a home with little or no rules allowing the children to treat a new stepmother with little to no respect knowing there will be little to no consequences. When a stepmother stands up for her right to be treated fairly, her partner may not be supportive of her. This tension sits in the couple relationship, but many stepmothers see the stepchildren as the sole problem creating conflict in the stepmother/stepchild relationship. . . So?? Take some comfort in the fact that your best intentions and beautiful heart don’t always = stepmum success. Not winning over the stepkids with your amazing personality? That may just be completely out of your control.

Fun fact on this #thankfulthursday ... See that beautiful teenager standing next to me? She made me realize i could be a mom. . No, I’m not her mom. She has a mom who gave birth to her, and is very much a key part of her life. I’m her stepmom, but thanks to Cinderella and the entertainment industry, stepmoms are seen as evil and out to get their stepchild(ren) which is SO not the case. I love her like my own kid! #bonusmom . But until i met her at the ripe age of 9, kids were not a part of my life plan. Patience was a big reason(the fact that i have none) and honestly, selfishness. I couldn’t imagine putting myself second. . That all changed when i met my now husband and his daughter. She taught me so much, but that kids are actually really fun and can make YOU a better person. Who would’ve thought? . Now, we’re expecting baby #2 for me, 3 for my hubs, and I’m just as shocked as i was when i figured out i wanted kids. Crazy how life changes! #crazygood 2 years ago, this never would have been shared. I share because it’s part of who i am, and if there’s someone out there who feels the same way, well then we aren’t alone! #solidarity this life has also given me the courage to be ME with no apologies. #betruetowhoyouare .

I love taking the time to be with myself, especially outside. It grounds me. ❤I have also had lots of time to learn how to live alone and I am grateful for that. Otherwise I wouldn'have focused on loving myself.

Hey everyone! This is my oldest son, Billy. He turns 5 today!! I can’t believe it... he is growing to be such a compassionate, loving, young man. He loves me fiercely. He laughs when I laugh, and sometimes if I cry, he will try and hold me to tell me it’s okay. . I am SO proud of who he is and who God is forming him to be! The best part, is that with living in a #blendedfamily , he doesn’t notice any difference from a biological family. He loves and looks at everyone the same. . I am so in love. . So happy FIFTH birthday my handsome son! Continue to be a good example to your little brother and all of your friends! Mommy is so proud ❤️😘❤️😘 . . #birthdayboy #blendedfamilylife #blendedfamilysuccess #blendedfamilylove #mindsetiseverything #stepfamily #stepmom #stepdad #stepkids #love #divorce #married #relationships #itbeginswithus #biokids #sons #mommysboy #funmoms #blendedfamilies #blendedfamiliesrock

Dear Mom of Two: . I know it feels like it doesn’t even matter. . Why try to take care of you when it seems that the house falls apart around you when you do? . The kids are going to cry, you won’t be able to give it your all, you might as well quit while you’re ahead and just eat some sunflower butter and chocolate chips right? . Wrong. . Here’s the deal. . You can do hard things. You are worth the effort. The kids love to see you try. It shows them that simply not thing at all isn’t acceptable. Your 100% effort isn’t necessary for it to count. In fact that’s ridiculous to wait for...that time you can give 100%. . Why? . Because you’re human. . Your effort is enough. You are enough. . So just try. Do something. I know it’s hard but you want to trip your kids a whole hell of a lot less when you can do something for you. 🤷🏻‍♀️ kidding;) . But for real. Get out of YOUR way. They’re not in it. Neither is your work, your house, your husband or your exhaustion. You are. . Step aside and shine sister. I’ve got your back. ✌🏼🙏🏼❤️ • • • #momonamission #boymom #momoftwo #savealltheanimals #blendedfamilylove #lindseygrayfitness #momswithtattoos #girlswithtats #halfsleeves #cosleepingmama #babywearingmama #postpartumjourney #breastfeedingmama #glutenfreemama #dairyfreemama #sleepdeprivedmama #allthingsholistic #holistichealth #holistichealing #bingerecovery #hairstylistlife #leadershipjunkie #chocolateeverything #brotherlove #walkytalky #mommyworkout #momandme

“Spend time with those you love. One of these days you will say either. “I wish I had” or “I’m glad I did” - Zig Ziglar . . Playing video games are my time to escape reality and relieve stress! As of late, Laeoni has taken it upon herself to invade on this time! I don’t mind though, because it gives us time to bond and form memories that she will never forget! 🎮

I love me some breakfast food. I could eat it ALL DAY! But I hate cooking in the am... . Anyone else?? . I mean I didn’t even cut the banana pictured here! 🤷🏻‍♀️ But that’s not the point. . The point is it’s HARD to find a top 8 allergen free quick breakfast that you don’t have to work hard for and that tastes GOOD! . So, here’s my go to👇🏼 . 👉🏼udis millet and chia gluten free bread 👉🏼sunbutter sunflower butter 👉🏼organic banana (torn, not cut😂) . I get them all from @peapoddelivers because ordering groceries is my JAM. You’re welcome!

Comment from Lindsey Gray:

Today I had really good intentions. . I was going to do all the things and be the best mom and clean the house and rock my biz and balance all that daily GRIND ish like a rockstar... . But I didn’t... . I showered at 7. I never worked out. I did manage to flip the dishes. And I did rock out some learning on the biz side of things. But other than that, this little guy needed me. . There are days I find it frustrating when I can’t put him down for a minute. But then I check myself. Because there will be hundreds and thousands of days when he’s older than I’ll just wish I could do it again. . So to all my fellow mamas raising wildlife, it’s okay. The rest of the junk will get done soon. It’s not going anywhere. This age is. Today is. . Take your moments. Own your time. Love your life. Even when it seems to be a mess around you. It’s beautiful. • • • #momonamission #boymom #momoftwo #savealltheanimals #blendedfamilylove #lindseygrayfitness #momswithtattoos #girlswithtats #halfsleeves #cosleepingmama #babywearingmama #postpartumjourney #breastfeedingmama #glutenfreemama #dairyfreemama #sleepdeprivedmama #allthingsholistic #holistichealth #holistichealing #bingerecovery #hairstylistlife #leadershipjunkie #chocolateeverything #raisewildlife #6monthsyoung #littlecheif

What can you do in 3 weeks? #waybackwednesday . Back in July, i remember people asking me why i was doing a new program. I suppose i “looked” fit enough and there wasn’t a reason in their head as to why i would continue taking care of myself! . But the great part is, throughout this journey, caring what others think has taken a backseat. What’s important is how YOU feel. I knew i was doing something amazing for myself.. and believe it or not, the picture on the right, i just found out we were expecting our miracle baby! . Want to see what this can do for you? A 7 day sneak peek is starting up!

It’s WORKING!! . . At our house we have a little issue with eating at the table, putting the toilet seat down and trying new foods! My 4 year old that is. So last night I broke out this chart! . . Owen helped me decide the other categories and right away he is LOVING getting stars on the board! . . Instead of telling them what NOT to do over and over, have a system that they can visually SEE and they can create those habits better along with you! . . I’ll add this to my shopping list in my bio for those of you interested. Click the link and enjoy!
