Mother’s Day ⠀⠀

⠀⠀
Mother’s Day has always been a hard day for me. It was a constant reminder of how everyone had a amazing mom, and I didn’t. I hated God for giving me the Mom that I had. It really messed with my self esteem, had me question my self worth, and if I was ever worthy of being a Mom. ⠀⠀

⠀⠀ I had a very rocky relationship with my mom. We were constantly in competition with one another, she always choose others over my siblings and I. She never knew how to show up, and just be there for us. A couple weeks after I gave birth to Chloe, she was sentenced to life in prison. I grieved. I was happy she was being put away, but at the same time, I hurt and felt sad for her.
⠀⠀

⠀⠀
I’m a Children’s Therapist, and the one thing that I love about my clients are their ability to show unconditional love. No matter how mean, wrong, angry they are with their parents, they love them. Unconditionally. It hit me hard, like a ton of bricks when I found myself a whole, adult, woman, crying because I wanted that love from my mother. A love that she didn’t know how to give me. A love that she had never received herself. A love that only God can show me. ⠀⠀

⠀⠀
God has put it on my heart to share. To share my experiences, thoughts, and feelings, about my life with everyone. To let you know that God is able to rewrite your story. No matter how many crazy obstacles, traumatic experiences you have been through. He can take anything, and use it for your good. ⠀⠀

⠀⠀
On my 30th birthday (which is a little over a week away) I’m launching my blog jessicalhall.com . I’m being completely vulnerable and sharing some of the most difficult experiences in my life. Your girl has been through some stuff..like your girl has multiple TV shows out currently, about my Momma. My goal is to show you how God is rewriting my story, and using every traumatic experience I’ve been through. I want you to join me in prayer as I embark on this new journey. Leave me 🙌🏾 in the comments if you’re down. ⠀⠀ #lifelessons #lifestyleblog #tulsablogger #dailyparenting #honestmom #christianblogger #documentingmotherhood #browngirlswhoblog #bloggerlife #bgm #BlackGirlsWhoBlog #blackbloggers

It’s Sunday ⠀⠀

⠀⠀
We were rushing to get out the house, and make it to church on time. While I was putting on my makeup, Chloe decided to “redo” her hair. ( I was over it at this point because I literally just spent 20 mins on doing her hair). I had an attitude !! Almost left the house with no shoes. Ain’t it crazy how the devil try’s to attack you when you’re on your way to church to get you in a funk. ⠀⠀

⠀⠀
Then this Oklahoma weather refuses to let me and my hair be great. The storm aftermath created this humid atmosphere, one in which my hair can’t survive. I did my hair, by the time we got to church it was a wild lions mane. ⠀⠀

⠀⠀
I’m going to do better and try again next week, until then, where can I find some cute headbands? I’m sure Chloe is tired of me stealing hers. 😂

#TBT to the time I was chilling at @Magnolia Courtyard drinking sweet Tea, living my @HGTV fantasy dreams. Why is it that I can only find sweet tea in the Deep South ? •
Tell me who you think has the best sweet tea? I say @bojangles especially when you add those extra seasoned fries!!! 😩 •

It’s Wednesday and I’m crushing on all you women that get up each and every morning and get it done.
⠀⠀
Whether you are up praying over your household, or submitting to your husband, or just taking care of kids! You may be killing it in your career or striving to figure it out. It’s okay, in due time you will reap a harvest. Take time to care for your self. Take time to love yourself. Each and every day you’re thriving and reaching for your goals even when it doesn’t feel like it. ⠀⠀
If know one else is telling you, I’m telling you. You’re killing it sis, and doing a bomb job. You deserve a round of applause, you make things happen. I know it’s hard but, the ship starts and runs with you. The world needs you . There are things that only you can produce. Keep killing it Sis !! Don’t let fear, doubt or anxiety stop you. Drop a heart💖 if you could use some extra prayers and encouragement . ⠀⠀

SUNDAY FUNDAY ⠀⠀
~ Sunday’s are for church, spending time with family & friends, and discovering new places to brunch.
⠀⠀
~ This week we explored Tulsa’s very 1st food hall. It’s a cool, new, vibrant community space where locals and tourist can eat, shop and indulge in over 20 different food and retail concepts all under one roof.
⠀⠀
~ I ate my heart out, the kids had a ball playing in the play area. Ced is happy that he got to watch @Tigerwoods come back and win the Masters. Now it’s time to rest until #GOT comes on. What does a typical Sunday look like for you ? ⠀⠀

Masterpiece
.

You were created to stand out. You were created to be you. There are certain gifts and talents that are specific to you. There is a specific audience assigned to just you. Your wins and failures all help to make the person that you are. Never let anyone make you feel as if you are inadequate. It’s so easy to get caught up in not feeling like you’re enough.

I’m here to tell you that you got it. You’re beautiful. It’s okay to love yourself. It’s okay to be confident in yourself. It’s okay to fail. Something that I’m constantly reminding myself in the world of social media perfection 🙄. Remember people always post there wins and rarely ever do they post their losses. Just get back up and keep going. You’re smarter, stronger and better than you think.

Mommiana

When I get off of work, I pick my babies up and they are typically attached to me like glue for the rest of the evening. Especially while I cook dinner. Chloe stays on my hip wanting to help me cook, and CJ wants to be my taste tester. They follow me where ever I go until it’s time for bed. •
I love my babies, being a Mom is the title I dreamed about having since I was a little girl. But if I’m being honest it’s one of the hardest jobs I have ever had. I get tired and weary but feel Mommy guilt when I want break. •
I’m constantly reminding myself that is okay to have some me time. It’s okay to do things that I love and enjoy. It’s okay to buy myself something. It’s okay. My identity is more than just being a Mom, a wife, a friend etc. Yes, those are titles that I have but those are not the core of my existence. It’s okay to recharge. So me and some of my sisters from NC are meeting up in Dallas and headed to Waco for a much needed girls trip this weekend, I couldn’t be happier! •
How do you recharge yourselves? What do you do for self care ? If you’re a mom/wife how do you balance having time to yourself ? ⠀⠀ #mytinytribe #thefamilynarrative #dailyparenting #honestmom #honestmomconfessions #momadvice #thisismotherhood #mamablogger #bedeeplyrooted #inbeautyandchaos #momlifestyle #mymamahood #goodthoughts #personalgrowth #positiveaffirmations #selfgrowth #positivemindset #makeitblissful #seekthesimplicity #innerpeace #heartandsoul #souljourney #joyfulmamas #momswhoblog #stopdropandmom #justmomlife #bestofmom #ohheymama

It’s Monday ! A new week, a chance to hit the ground running even when you don’t feel like. -
If I’m being honest, I just got off of a really lack schedule this past week, now this week is going to be pretty busy. But I’m choosing to focus on the positive instead of the negative.
-
I have to tell myself affirmations. The more you speak it, the more you believe it.
-
This will be a good week. I will accomplish everything I set to do this week. You got this, you’re stronger than you think. Don’t let nobody rain on your parade. You were created for this! Every thing you do in this season is setting you up for your next season. Oh, and girl you looking good !! Don’t let nobody tell you that you’re not !Blessing, Blessing, Blessing 😘
-
How do you encourage yourself ? -

“Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.” If you don’t know where this quote is from we can’t be friends lol. •
⠀⠀
Hey y’all, I’m Jessica and this is the my squad. The family that God blessed me with. My hubby Ced, CJ, and Chloe. We consider ourselves #TheHallsWay. That’s the name of our YouTube channel. I love these peeps with my whole entire heart. ⠀⠀

⠀⠀
My family is no where perfect, nor do we try to be. We are just on here riding the wave, learning and growing each and everyday. When I look at them I’m constantly reminded of God’s faithfulness. They are everything and more of what I prayed for my family to be. Even when Ced and I get into arguments, when CJ talks my head off and doesn’t want to listen, and when Chloe wakes me up at 3:30am and wants to snuggle as she sings baby shark. ⠀⠀

⠀⠀
Being married is work, raising kids is work. After I leave my day time job, I clock in to my other 2 full time jobs. I know every body wants that picture perfect family. However, it’s way more to it than just having the perfect picture. It’s constant sacrifice, long nights, and constantly giving of yourself, even when you feel like you don’t have anymore to give. We are a regular imperfect family, that goes through highs and lows like everyone else. We make mistakes, we learn from those mistakes, and we constantly push through to be the best God created us to be. We love God and we know that God can get us through anything. We know that He has called us to be world changers. ⠀⠀
If you are new to my page or haven’t checked in a while tell me something about yourself or your family. ⠀⠀ #familymatters #representation #love #blacklove #family #life #bedeeplyrooted #momswhoblog #honestmomconfessions #mytinytribe #familyforever #lovemyfam #lifestyleblog #personalblog #reclaimthehappy #nothingisordinary #stillswithstories #perfectlyimperfect #reallove #familymatters
