On the eve of my first mother’s day I have lots on my mind. Being a mom is challenging. More challenging than I would have ever imagined. Today I am reminding myself that no matter how hard it is, no matter how frustrated I get, or how tired I am. I am Mom enough. 💕 ** Tag a strong momma!**
Having empty countertops, organized closets, and a place for everything gives me life! Trying to declutter little by little.
1st rule in cleaning: if your husband won’t notice it’s gone you don’t have to ask to toss it 😂🤣
For decades Detroit has had bad reputation- to put it mildly. But with the revitalization of downtown, Detroit is on her way back to being reminiscent of her glory days. Honestly, it has taken me several years to get behind this idea. I previously worked in child welfare in the city and saw first hand how devastating some of the neighborhoods are. It made me feel so sad that the downtown area was being revitalized while the neighborhoods looked like third world countries and the kids didn’t have access to the things they need to thrive. Slowly however, improvements are beginning to trickle down to the neighborhoods. It isn’t perfect and I don’t have the perfect solution. But we are hopeful that J and L will see a stronger and better Detroit in their lifetime. If you come to Michigan, I encourage you to check out Detroit and see all that she has to offer. .
We’re excited about this weekend’s #GOTV Festival in #Michigan! Michiganders have a critical role to play in the upcoming primaries — and we’re going to make sure Muslim communities are part of that history making. LINK IN BIO #MyMuslimVote

Big no no!! We’re all on our own path and those paths aren’t aligned with everyone else’s. Don’t measure your success, progress, or worth by someone else’s ruler. 💕💕💕
One thing I’ve always found is that a lot of people miss out on things because they don’t speak up, they don’t ask. .

This has stuck with me for a long time. Go after whatever it is you’re seeking, if you have to reroute do that, as many times as you need. And if you need help, tell everyone, generally people want to see you succeed. Keep moving. Keep Trying.
What a super fun day we had up at the cottage!! Honestly, this is what summer is made of... family, sun, fun, and blow up ducks wearing sunglasses! .
We can’t wait to celebrate all of the dads tomorrow!
Ask yourself this- what have I done today that gets me one step closer to my best life? #alwayshustlehard

Taking risks can be scary! I’m currently scared! 😖
What do they say, if you aren’t scared your dreams are t big enough?! 🤔
Protect your circle and your space. Keep those close to you who will build you up, help you out, and encourage you to take chances! 🤔
Don’t be afraid to open up your circle either, there are so many people out there who may be exactly who/what you need in this season! 🤗

Do you ever just need a space , to just be whatever you need whenever you need it? That’s what this spaces for me! .
I figure it’s time to introduce myself, my name is Stephanie and this is my space. I’ll be sharing more about myself really soon! . .
I’m excited to have a space that can grow with me, and I am excited to share my space with you! There is so much more to come, I hope you are all here for it! Welcome to my space 💕

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples”
Figureoutable, yes it is.
In a previous post I talked about all of the challenges we’ve been dealing with and right now we’re really in the trenches trying to work through them. It’s important to remember is that it’s all figureoutable.
Lucky for me I have a good support system and a clear mind. What are some things you do to get through difficult situations? Need some tips? Try these:
✨ try to remain calm in difficult situations .
✨ don’t make decisions in the moment, try to develop a birds eye perspective. You may gain a different understanding by looking at the situation from an outsiders point of view which will help you in decision making. .
✨ after looking at the situation in multiple ways you have the power to choose how you will react and feel regardless of others reactions. .
✨ remember remaining positive does not mean you are ignoring the problem but you are choosing not to let it consume you. .
💗Have a great Thursday!
