The Boundary That Started It All: No

Uncategorized Jan 23, 2018

If there is one segment of my life that I am kicking ass in, and 100% confident in owning my shit about, it would be boundaries. 

For the last six years I have consciously worked on creating boundaries to keep myself, and my children, safe from expectations and judgment. Both of which can wreck havoc on you, especially if you are broken and fragile. 

As a recovering co-dependent, I know what it feels like to live for someone else's happiness. I know how heavy of a burden it is to show up every single day feeling as though you are failing your life, their life, and probably your kid's neglected hamster's life as well. 

When you exist within other's expectations, you are constantly changing your mask to match the outside world. And eventually, you forget to take the masks off (because it's just easier...) and your light begins to fade beneath the layers and layers of facade.

And because it is some damn hard work removing those layers and layers of masks, many of us...

inspire motivate quotes Jan 15, 2018

I love, love, love motivational and inspiring quotes!

I have 8 Pinterest boards dedicated to quotes and positive sayings! I print them up, and tape them in places where I can see them daily. Some I turn into personal mantra, and repeat when I am feeling less than positive.

It’s like reading the most important and magical parts of self help books in just a few sentences!


Check out a few of my favorite quotes <3

“Ah yes, the past can hurt you. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or, learn from it.”
Rafiki, The Lion King

“I think it’s healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not defined by another person.”
Oscar Wilde

“The women whom I love and admire for their strength and grace did not get that way because shit worked out. They got that way because shit went wrong, and they handled it. They handled it in a thousand different ways on a thousand different days, but they handled it. Those women are my...

5 Ways to Kick Funk to the Curb

Being in a funk sucks!

It’s that feeling of being burnt-out, stressed out, and being in an all around shitty mood.

You feel down in the dumps, listless, unable to motivate, and you don’t really care about much.

I have noticed, from working with a lot of women on personal goal setting, that often times, after reaching a goal, a funk-vibe will start to settle in. You would think after reaching a milestone and accomplishing a goal, there would be a bunch of happy- faced selfies, and dancing the night away… But that’s not always the case.

After reaching your goal, you are left with a feeling of ‘now what’?

That’s why having a bigger picture and a system in place, to check back in with after reaching your goal, is so important. 

And if you still need some funk-kicking, here are five ways to get 'er done:

  • This one is a no-brainer. Get your butt moving. Go for a daily walk. Hit the gym. Get on your bike. Take a class or practice yoga....

2018: Time To Refuel

At this moment, two years ago, I was sitting at my desk, after a two week holiday break, staring at my computer screen and having a conversation with myself about what my future was going to look like for myself and my family.

I decided that I was going to put my trust into the Universe, and have faith that the previous five years of creating and building a foundation would payoff. I launched a 'secret' Facebook group that day, and my years of hard work paid off. Huge. 

I have become acutely aware of just how important a strong foundation is to surviving hardships, setbacks, heartbreaks, and successes.

In 2014, I found myself at a place in my divorce where I was finally able to focus on me. I was done with the binge-drinking, diet-pill-popping lifestyle that I was living as a newly single woman. I started to practice yoga, went to Barre classes five days a week (sometimes 2x a day), did thousands of sets of stairs, drank my daily quota of water, and my sleep...

From The Ashes, There Is Growth. Part Three of Three

Uncategorized Nov 07, 2017

Have you ever experienced a period in your life when survival was the only option?

An existence when your body was fueled by adrenaline, fear, and the unknown. And every breath you took felt like warm cement building walls around your lungs. 

That was my world in the middle part of 2015. 

{It's kind of a significant part of my story, so take a moment to jump back to Shit Hits The Fan. Part Two of Three and get caught up.} 

To say that life was a clusterfuck would be too kind. We were a fucking mess. The kids and I were spiraling down into a deep, dark place and someone needed to save us. It was during one of those nights when we were all sleeping (there was very little sleep) in my bed together, to protect each other from nightmares and drowning in our tears, that I had a moment of clarity, and realized that it was up to me to save us.  

If I wanted to take back power and control, then I was going to need to start taking some action....

Shit Hits The Fan. Part Two of Three

Uncategorized Nov 06, 2017

 

Let's just get right into the good stuff. If you missed part one, you may want to take a moment and start there. Hey! Nice To Meet You! Part One of Three

Quick recap: 

18 months after he left, our 8 year old daughter was diagnosed Type 1 Diabetic. 

One year after that diagnosis, my ex would be in a full-blown, downward-spiral fed by addiction, mental illness, and a violent relationship.

Two years after that, he would be laying in a coma, with a tube coming out of his skull, handcuffed to a hospital bed, with an armed guard outside the front door. 

His girlfriend would be dead from stab wounds he inflicted in a drug-induced rage. 

The following year, I would be holding my Dad's hand as he took his last breath.

I know, right?! Like what-the-serious-fuck? But stick with me, everything turns out for the best. Even for the ex. 

Once I wrapped my head around my new, single life, I embraced that status with gusto and passion! And vodka, diet...

Hey! Nice To Meet You! Part One of Three

Uncategorized Nov 05, 2017

During three separate conversations that I have had this past week, with women who have been hanging out with me on the World Wide Web for sometime, it was brought to my attention that they didn't know much more about me other than who I present myself as today. WHAT?!

Here I am hosting a 9,000 person Facebook party, and 90% of the guests don't even know who's house they are partying at! What a shitty host.

My name is Stacey Sarenity and I prefer the ocean to the mountains. Car rides to plane trips, and dark, dingy dive bars are my idea of a good time. I'm a full-time mama to two rad kids, 12 and 14, and we share our home, beds, and couch with two big-ass pits who are pathetically lazy. The dogs. Not the kids. I also excel at parallel parking. Among other things.*

*Copy/pasted from my online dating app. Which I should probably get back on and start swiping. Because clearly these men aren't just showing up at my front door all on their own. (Which would actually be rather...
