Been Thinking !

I have had plenty of time to figure out what I want to do with my life . Yet I cannot commit to a solid decision . Been thinking I know I am a natural healer . Spiritually , Physically and Mentally . It is choosing the right venue for myself to express it and help people . I know I am supposed to be well-rounded in plenty of things . Where do I begin ? Do I home school myself ?

I don’t enjoy working for someone . I like to think that if I am working hard I will reap the benefits . I need to act fast . Everyday take steps to get to my goals . Speaking of Goals . I think I need to set some fresh and new ones . Some simple to achieve and some that will take some serious commitment . I need to show myself I am the only one who is gonna get me there !

 

Life is GREAT !

Parenting . . .

Mason’s making me wish I can go back to sleep and start the day over again . When is this kid gonna learn ? Why the hard way is his only option . No matter how many times we tell him life is a CHOICE . He chooses to make the same mistakes at least 20 times until I punish him from the world for him to understand . Is it that he is spoiled ? Where did I go wrong ? Should I have spanked him growing up ? I didn’t like it but I listened to my parents .

How do I get my point across to my kids with the correct discipline ? What is the correct discipline ?

Is there a right and a  wrong way ?

My children are my life and when I feel that they are disrespectful to me I feel that somewhere I have failed as a parent . I don’t know why anyone would take advantage of someone who already does everything for them . Is that my bad for always being there for them ?

Mother’s take on life is like

Some much has transpired in my life since I started this blog . I have traveled to places I never thought I would see . I met some amazing people I call my friends . Life has taken its twists and turns . I have made good and bad decisions along the way . When I look back I question myself ” Would you have done it any different ?” Sure I would have , That doesn’t mean I have regrets . I am grateful for my life experiences . I think I am a caring ,giving , nurturing , spiritual human being . I am those things because of the things I have experienced in my life .

I decided to keep a weekly journal again online . Here on this blog . Just if not to inspire anyone . A place where my children can come back and read what their Mother’s take on life is like .

LIFE IS GOOD !

Are you really affected ?

What recession ?

The one they tell us  we are having so that we go in to a state of panic and stop spending money and the chain reaction starts , people don’t spend money , companies start to miss that money they told us we shouldn’t be spending because of the recession and then people get laid off because the companies are missing the money that we have and are told not to spend . The money is there is doesn’t just disappear . It cycles all the time . But when we are told that there is a problem we stop the cycle . Then it seems that the money has disappeared . That is just giving the government time to figure out how to hide all the money they took out of the cycle .

It reminds me of the traffic signs on the highway . You know the digital ones that tell you if there is traffic ahead . All the sudden when you get to those exits mentioned on the sign everybody slows down . Usually there is no direct reason for the traffic other than the sign states that it should be there .

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 ?
