At the beginning of the year, I sat down all gung-ho with a notebook and wrote down some goals.  I had a long list of goals I wanted to accomplish in 2018.  My list was too long and I didn’t accomplish nearly as much as I thought I would. This list was lengthy but I learned that trying to do too much pulls your attention in too many different directions and you don’t get anything done.  I honestly forgot I even made this list until I opened up my notebook on Monday.  I am glad that I accomplished something on… View Post

Happy Tuesday!  You are perfect the way you are. I don’t know about you, but I unintentionally on the “sly” say negative things about myself.  I find myself saying, “she had a baby around the same time as me and she’s doing this.” There’s so much focus on one moment in time and not enough focus on the bigger picture.  To make a whole, you must have the parts even the parts that aren’t so pretty. We live in a different world of perfectly curated pictures and other social media posts that make it seem like other people have their… View Post

Happy Monday! This morning I had a friendly reminder that something is better than nothing. Obviously, this wasn’t the blog post I had planned for today but this is the message that was meant to be shared today.

This… View Post

What’s the point? When things aren’t going my way, this is how I feel. It’s easy to question why to continue the path or even why to keep trying at something. Wondering what is the point, is the point. I won’t sugar coat things for you. Things haven’t been going my way. Every time I feel like I’ve made it over one hurdle then I feel like I’m hit with another roadblock. Life is a tricky thing and navigating it gets rough for me. I’m a sensitive person. I have a hard exterior, but I do take on other people’s… View Post

The future is calling and it’s time to start making plans. A new day is on the horizon and I am really trying to start something new.  I need the change because things are just not good.  My attitude hasn’t been positive.  I’ve stopped planning, therefore, I’ve stopped setting goals. I’ve been slacking off a bit lately and I haven’t felt like myself.  I’ve been down.  I haven’t had a positive outlook on much.  I guess I’ve just been lost. Normally, I’m really hard on myself for these things, but after a deep discussion yesterday I won’t be like that.… View Post
