And since I am being real here, if you are following me on instagram(@Lexruns92)..You saw how I shared this picture. I am currently typing this up while sitting in pants I have been in for like, six days straight. They are pretty much just a part of me by now(totally horrible, but totally honest). And I am currently choosing to do everything but take a shower.  A mess right? Right.

I have talked about how messy life is. I talk about that a lot. Because, these days social media can be so very deceiving. It is insane. I am here to share the story of my life. And the beautiful train wreck it is.

Okay, so you all are going to think I am completely insane. It is okay though. I am honest. And a complete mess.

Hi. My name is Alexis. I am twenty-three years young. I got pregnant at the age of seventeen.  I had my gorgeous daughter at the young age of eighteen. I got married right after I found out I was pregnant(Yes, at seventeen years old). I was married for three years. Divorced at the age of twenty-one. Remarried at the age of twenty-two. Divorced for the second time at the age of twenty-three.

Yes, my life is a mess. I have made a lot of interesting decisions. I wouldn’t really consider them “mistakes” because I really have learned a lot since the age of seventeen.

People pretty much call me crazy and insane I am sure. That is okay with me. I love life. No matter where I am. I may have anxiety out the roof and some days I feel like I am sinking into a black hole. But, I adore this life I live. I love learning. I am growing. I am constantly growing.

I wouldn’t change anything I have been through. I am here for a reason. A very messy reason, but a reason at that.

On other notes…Here are other messy areas in my life…

My house gets a little too messy at times…The dishes start to stack in the sink…the laundry doesn’t get done for days at times and piles up. Some days I look at the clothes and roll my eyes. I mean, come on. That pile totally taunts me. My daughter’s attitude. Oh lawd. That child just turned five and she thinks she is fifteen. I have to remind her often she isn’t a teenager and most days, she doesn’t believe me. 😉 Some days I don’t even brush my hair. Some days a shower just doesn’t happen. There are a ton of days the make up calls to me and I ignore it. Some times I wear socks for like, 4 days in a row without washing them(to answer your question, yeah, my feet do stink sometimes). I often times repeat outfits to work…and by that…I mean from one day to another. I miss my weekend cleaning days at times. I put off going to the grocery store all.the.time. 

See. I am not afraid to point out the flaws in my life. I am not afraid to share with the world when I fail or mess up. Because, in the end, it is okay. It really and truly is okay.

There is no need to sugar coat life. My life is anything but glamorous. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. Without the hard times we couldn’t truly appreciate the beautiful moments.


(And to finish up this post for you all. Here is a picture of me that I did not mean to take. I thought I was taking a video for my vlog. Yeah, again, no perfection here.)

Thanks for reading the short story of my crazy, beautiful, and insane life,

  1. LIFE is messy and at least you’re owning it 😉 Oh and I wear the same jeans for several days too, totally fine! I’m now following you on Instagram and look forward to seeing more mess 🙂

    1. It is for sure! I surprise people when I tell them all that! And I’m not afraid to share it! It’s a part of my story 🙂

  2. What a way to introduce your post! I love how honest you are it refreshing to know that you don’t sugarcoat what you go through because real life is not what you see on social media. If you go on my Instagram account I look glossy, polished but I definitely do not look like that in real life haha.

  3. Life is absolutely messy! I have three little ones and my house is rarely clean, I don’t do my hair, and I am happy if I can get a lukewarm cup of coffee during the morning 🙂 You are doing a great job!

  4. I was divorced twice by 30 and, like you, I don’t think I’d call them outright mistakes because they definitely helped shape who I am now, but I do admit that the first one, at least, can be totally chalked up to ‘young and stupid.’ Such is life, and yes it’s messy; we have to choose where we put our time and effort.

  5. What comforts you? We all go through stressful periods from time to time and nobody’s life is perfect, but I find that having something comforting to get back to is the first step towards finding your footing and re-discovering yourself.

  6. I don’t have the reasoning of having a kid, but my house stays a bit on the messy side. I’ll get fed up and do a massive cleaning once every few weeks, but I would rather live life than worry about being super clean. And don’t worry, I’m a bit insane as well. 🙂

  7. I know the feeling of a messy life! I got married two weeks after I turned 18, pregnant at 20, and now have a 2 year old at 22! It definitely teaches you a lot, and it changes the way you look at things! My life is messy too, in the best way. Love this post!

  8. What is it they say….admitting a problem is the first step towards solving it?

    I think we all look at social media and see the ‘pretty’ picture perfect families and homes and can get depressed if we let it. My house is NOT ready for House Beautiful to come visit. It’s closer to Hoarders. But, that’s what happens when you have 4 boys, homeschool 3 of them (the 4th is now attending the local university), and work from home. Life IS messy!

  9. Like everyone else has said, life is messy. The fact that you can own it at 23 is pretty impressive. I don’t think I could have done that. Nobody says you have to be perfect and the sooner you realize that, the happier you will be. I think you are well on your way.

  10. Thanks so much for sharing your story and being vulnerable with your readers. I think we’re all a little messier than we care to admit at times to it’s refreshing to know that there are other people at there who are a little “insane”.

  11. Life IS messy. I’ve totally worn pants for a week, so gross but yet, so FREEEEE. LOL

    I think some people are so focused on perfection that they become so stressed out by it. Personally, I know my life IS a mess (I haven’t done a ton of personal life stuff on my blog in a long time) and I am good with it. Less stressful.

    PS I was married and divorced twice by 26. Good times, right? LOL

    I love this post! Props to you! We’re all a little insane around here 😉
