Are you Broke or Just Broken ?

Do you realize that being broke is a state of mind ? Do you know that when people refer to you as White collar or Blue collar you are really talking about your way of thinking . It is true we do think differently . White collar people think rich and blue-collar wish rich . BIG difference. You bank account can have a lot to do with your relationship with money .

It all starts in your mind. What is your relationship with money ? Where you raised with a poor mindset . Where you told that you always will have to work and struggle for money . It doesn’t come easy to us all . Rich people are born that way . Well folks I am here to tell you different !

We are what we think about . So if you are fixed on a poor mentality that is exactly where you will find yourself . POOR !

We are a result of our current way of thinking. It is understandable why people cannot find the success and money they wish to better their lives .  They wouldn’t know how to handle the money even if they got it . That is why many big lotto winners lose all the winnings . They mentally don’t know what to do with it .

Are you BROKE or Just BROKEN ?

Reality . . . What is Reality ?

Do you already understand that everybody’s reality is different ? What is real to you might no exist to someone else.  Reality is based on you perception of life .

That is where judging people comes in . We tend to judge people all the time . They way the look , act  and even smell . But the fact is everybody is entitled to be different . We tend to be uncomfortable with things we have little knowledge on . Most humans don’t want to change their perception of reality  . They rather spend their time judging others then educating themselves about them .

So , What is Reality ?

Reality, in everyday usage, means “the state of things as they actually exist.”[1] Literally, the term denotes what is real; in its widest sense, this includes everything that is, whether or not it is observable or comprehensible. Reality in this sense includes being and sometimes is considered to include nothingness, as well. By contrast, the term existence is often restricted solely to being (compare with nature).

So from the definition we understand that reality is the state of things as they actually exist FOR YOU !

Family … Why we have them

Growing up my impression of family was a good one . I understood the concept of ” It takes a VILLAGE to raise a family ”  I am not sure if it was that my husband and myself wanted a big family that we realized that we held our expectations to high . It is an old saying that many don’t follow anymore .

There are a lot of single family homes and homes with no extended family at all . Customs and traditions are passed along when time is spent with family . It is much harder on a family when nobody else is helping you instill your family customs .  It saddens me to think we are all to busy to take part in the future of this world .

I believe the creator aka GOD had intentions to have not just a mother and father to  be involved in your child’s life . Every member of your family has a important part in a baby’s life. I think raising a child takes a lot of work and energy . When a mother gets burnt out because she never see the time of day for herself the child is the one who suffers . When there are elders and other family members you can trust around to help you can keep your sence of sanity .

It is mind-boggling to me how we are so self-absorbed in our own lives we forget what life is really about .  Although the first few years that we started our family we had to struggle showing our children what a real true meaning of family is . We have come a long way . We have found the family bonds we have been forever searching for . Our children are growing to see what we have been telling them for years . Family is a bond like no other . ( remember family isn’t always blood ) Once it is formed there is no tearing it apart.

At the start of the new year we are in  a state of GRATITUDE for the wonderful family we  have in our lives  .

Have I Grown at All ?

How much have I grown this year ?

How much have I grown ?

I look back and reflect on the past 12 months and wonder Have I Grown at All ?  I know I had taken steps this year to expand my mind . I have read plenty of books , been to personal development conferences . More importantly I have opened my mind up to possibilities .

Possibilities of changing my life again . They say ” What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger ” . I am holding on to that . I am built like a OX !

As I am writing this I realize I have grown tremendously . In every aspect of the word . The best part for me is knowing that it is a  endless journey . I can never said I am board . That would me I had given up on myself . I cannot possibly get board if I choose to constantly grown in my life .

How much have you GROWN this year ?

Motherhood ~ what it means to me

A mother is a biological and/or social female parent of an offspring.[1] Because of the complexity and differences of a mothers’ social, cultural, and religious definitions and roles, it is challenging to define a mother to suit a universally accepted definition. 

 

 

 Dana & Alexa

Motherhood – What does it define to be ?

 

   In all cultures mothers play different roles . Everyone has a different reality . That makes motherhood a different experience for us all .

For me motherhood is something I looked forward to embracing since I was young . Being a stay at home mother . It was about nurturing my children into kind well mannered and polite thoughtful humans . Take them to the park, the zoos and the museums  . Teach them about the world . 

When they were school age Motherhood was all about being involved in the school . Always staying excess-able . Supporting my children’s education . Being able to volunteer for class trips and school functions . For me a big part of motherhood . 

Motherhood is also about having a close relationship with my children . They should be able to feel comfortable to come and talk to me about anything . They should know that I am unconditionally there for them . 

The biggest part of motherhood is the joy in my heart watching my kids grow . Dana & Mason

Great thoughts to live by ….

” Trust should be like the feeling of a one-year-old baby when you throw him in the air; he laughs because he knows you will catch him.”

” The best motivation is self-motivation. The guy says, “I wish someone would come by and turn me on.” What if they don’t show up? You’ve got to have a better plan for your life.”
Jim Rohn


” Don’t be afraid to fail. Don’t waste energy trying to cover up failure. Learn from your failures and go on to the next challenge. It’s OK to fail. If you’re not failing, you’re not growing.”
H. Stanley Judd


” Nothing can change the past but you can do something to change the future. Don’t be afraid of “FAIL”- it only creates chances of opportunities for new things. Celebrate failure when you know you did your best but don’t settle there, Advance!”

” No man ever woke up on the top of the mountain; he awakened one day and started his climb.”

” Failures are the pillars of success. Keep trying again and again; one day the time is bound to come to offer you the fruits of your labor. By the same way, no one should expect the results before time and more than luck. Keep in mind that hard labor is the gateway to success.”
D.K.
