Moving on is hard and watching your ex move on can be equally hard, but no matter what emotions it evokes in you, you have to remember the truth of who you are and where you are. You've come a long way. You have grown and changed and your ex's relationship is n...

It can be scary and lonely as a single parent, but there are also so many blessing that come with it. I am lucky enough to have an amazing support system that reminds me that I'm not alone and that I'm doing awesome. Hopefully you have the same, but if you'...

There is a shift that can happen quite suddenly though. It's like someone switches the light on and we see things for what they actually are. I've always been very confident in who I am, but for me the question was, "What do I really want from my life? How...

Having convenient, healthy meals to reach for is a game changer. I've never been one to prep a whole weeks meals on Sunday, though it's not a bad idea, but taking 20 or 30 minutes in the evening to prep for the next day or two has been a huge factor in me reach...

Excuse The Mess Blog is a lifestyle and single mom blog with the goal to empower people to be the best versions of themselves.
