I’m out of surgery and resting! Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and encouragement. The surgery went well. Dr. said it was really bad but he was able to repair the injuries. I have a full tool box in my foot now, LOL! ... See MoreSee Less

I have surgery on my leg this Thursday. Because there is so much damage I am required to be on bed rest until 6/3.

There is going to be massive rearranging of my client schedule. If you are scheduled this Thursday to 6/3, Michelle will be calling to reschedule you. (This Mon-Wed appts will remain on the schedule, I will be in the office). If you would like to reschedule yourself from 6/3 on, it would be greatly appreciated and quite helpful.

I know this is less than ideal and frustrating. Please accept my apology. Please PM if you’d like to be on my cancellation list, I will work very hard to get you in. I will be able to be reached by phone, email or texting in case of emergency or if you want to touch base. It may take me a bit to get back to you but I will.

Thank you so much for your grace and patience! 🌷

Throughout my life I have gone through many challenges, celebrations, heartache and happiness. There has not been a single day in my life that my Mom hasn’t been by my side coaching, cheering, praying and living life with me. Sometimes I have to pause and remember that I could’ve had a different Mom but God blessed me with mine. She is by far the most precious gift God has ever given me. You deserve 365 Mother’s Days, not just one! Thank you for loving me at my ugliest, laughing with me to the point of not being able to breathe and for giving me the gift of unconditional love! Happy Mother’s Day! Kathy Chastain Lieske ... See MoreSee Less

Last Friday evening I fell hurt my leg/ankle. I went to the ER and they told me to meet with my Orthopedic Dr next week. I couldn’t handle the pain any longer so the most wonderful Dr Hess had me meet him at his office (even though it is his week off) at 8am today. As soon as he unwrapped my leg he said it is much worse than what the hospital said.

I separated my tibia from my fibia at the ankle. I broke many bones in my ankle AND by the way the blood was pooling on my leg he traced it up and identified a break in my fibia below my knee, X-ray confirmed it. I massively pulled the ligaments throughout my ankle and calf.

Soooo I will have to have surgery to put pins and rods in, in a week or so. I will be off work for two weeks and recovering for 6weeks. I don’t have a surgery date yet.

Please accept my apologies early on as my schedule is about ready to be rearranged. I absolutely 110% want to see my clients during this time but my schedule may get very interesting in the next month. I will be working different days and hours than usual to accommodate all that I can. My Lady Michelle will be contacting you if we need to reschedule your appointment. Thank you for your prayers, grace and patience. ❤️

Today I woke up happy and with motivation to spend another day slaying dragons. Half way through my day I felt like I was swimming through peanut butter and sad. Through every hour that passed I searched and searched for the cause of my sadness with no explanation.

While I was driving home I accidentally hit a button on my phone that brought up the recording of my Dad’s voice and it played....then it all came back to me....last night I dreamt that my phone rang and my Dad was on the other end...I stared at the my phone for a while and then answered it quickly before it went to VM. I could hear his voice and see his face so clearly and then I woke up....I shook the cobwebs from my head and then curled up in the fetal position...crying at the realization as if for the first time, my Dad died tragically...and is gone....forever.

Do not be mislead, there are no stages of grief, no process to work through and no cookie cutter approach to healing from grief. It comes and goes like the waves of the ocean, sometimes huge, small, infrequent or one crash after another. The most important thing is to recognize that even after a few years of losing someone you may someday find yourself struggling to get back up on the surf instead of being drowned by it. Embrace your grief and ride the wave, it will pass.

There is nothing more empowering or therapeutic then to have another human being share their most authentic feelings, perceptions and dreams with you in a space of nonjudgement or ridicule. It is in that vulnerable exchange that one can feel validation. Validation is the conduit for the most intimate connection. ♥ ... See MoreSee Less

Several times a week a client will say to me, “I hate the nighttime because my mood drops....I don’t like evenings because I become very anxious....as soon as it starts to get dark my thoughts start to race”.

Have you ever noticed how emotions are way more intense at night? Whatever you’re feeling seems to increase tenfold. That’s because we are more likely to find ourselves alone with our thoughts at night. During the day, we’re all running around, doing our jobs, talking to each other, trying to get things done. It’s easy to suppress our emotions when we’re busy and have life to distract us. But at night, when the world slows down, and everyone is asleep but you, the only company you have is your mind. Your emotions become much bigger and more powerful because they’re being amplified by solitude. It’s hard to ignore them when everything else is so quiet.

To manage your nighttime emotions you may consider trying some of these tips to help improve your symptoms from worsening at night:

“Unwind at least two hours before bed. This lets your body start to slow down and get ready for sleep. Good sleep is important for overall health and well-being.
Keep work and anything stressful outside of the bedroom. This can help to make your sleeping space more calming and positive. Consider making your bedroom a screen-free room if you can. Practice stress-relieving activities. Calming activities that relieve stress like painting or mindful baking can help you cope with your depression at night. Yoga and meditation can also help you relieve stress before bed.
Avoid bright screens. Try not to look at any bright screens for at least two hours before bed, and dim the lights as much as possible. Limit alcohol and caffeine intake. Both of these can increase symptoms of depression. Caffeine too late in the day can also disrupt your sleep.”

There is NOTHING more challenging than being a parent and a “good” one at that! I have two Master’s degrees and have weathered extreme challenges in my life but nothing compares to the difficulty being a Mom is. Mom’s (Dad’s too) are the most influential person in a child’s life. No pressure at all! 😂 You couple that with the value we place on our children and quickly realize the absolutely overwhelming task of raising up a well-rounded and happy child. The pressure is like no other!

I had no idea what was in store for me when I decided to become a parent...or quite honestly I don’t know that I would have had children (okay don’t judge, I’m being transparent). Not because I wouldn’t want kids but because of the gross inadequacy that I feel daily. I absolutely ADORE AND LOVE my boys and would never wish them away in my life BUT I immensely underestimated the pain that would come while raising them. Yes, I know there is joy as well but I read about that all over the place which discourages me even more because I read about the joy of parenting and ask myself, “what have I done so very wrong as a Mom because I don’t feel that way”.

I don’t have a lot of answers. I write this to reach out to discouraged parents and say, “you are not alone”.

The one truth I do know is that I am nothing to my children without God. ❤️
