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 ?
Shakti Mat . . .
My husband bought me this mat for my birthday . I am turning 21 LOL 37 in a few days . I have been into alternative medicine for at least 20 years . I have done all sorts of cleanses and fasts . I have every type of massage that they do . I love having 30 needles in my back .
This tops the cake . A BED of NAILS is what this is . I have been laying on it this past week . HOLY COW !
Not sure if it is me or but it hurts yet I choose to stay laying on it then I get past the pain when my endorphins kick in and I only feel a burn where I have issues with my back . It reminds my of what it feels like after getting TATTOOED a few hours . That is exactly how I describe it to my husband like having a full back piece just done on my back . I started last Saturday for 10 min and I have worked my way up to 15 mins .
If you are interested it is cheaper on Amazon.com then the actual website .
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 !
What an over rated day today is . I never was one to like to be told what to do . So when it comes to holidays I don’t celebrate them the same . When I first got married , my husband and I celebrated every holiday on the calender . Did I mention we had no money and I was on WIC .
So to get on with the story as my husband and I started to grow spiritually we seem to get less attached to the calander holidays . We were understanding the importance of celebrating life everyday and not just on special occasions . We understood the waste of money that holidays cost . The fact that others make a ridiculous profit from hard working 🙂 people on a day that we are told to celebrate is fascinating to me . Slowly we weened ourselves off the holidays . We started to appreciated each other and the loved ones around us all the time . Random flowers and nice dinners . Cards of gratitude don’t have to wait for a holiday to be shared .
We are parents and I think we are really setting a presence with our children of what is really important in life . That is not to let it fly by you . Let it not be the world that dictates to you when you should let someone know you love them . Let it be a way of life . Be good to others everyday . Make everyday a day to celebrate 🙂 .
Life is GOOD !
It is time to say good-bye to the past few years . I can only hold on to the success I have found . I will have to remind myself that I didn’t fail . I learned a lot . If I continue to see the past as a failure I will never be able to move UPWARD AND ONWARD .
I was reading a post on Extreme John .com . It really made me see that anyone is capable of change as long as they can recognize it and want to see life different . All we need to do is let go . Stop worrying about what others are achieving and find your own success . John was right in changing his focus . I will do the same . My focus is on how I am going to achieve my next goal 🙂
Life is good , So why create it to be bad ?
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 .
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 ?
I have joined a group of 8 bloggers . John Sullivan is a friend of mine : ) . I had met him when he came across my blog . I responded to his comment and we had hit it off. Over a year and a half later I consider him a GOOD friend ! I was taken back by his offer to write along with 7 other amazing people . I don’t know who these people are . But I do know how John is about picking people to associate with . The best part of this blog is we are free to express ourselves as we see fit ! The Blog is called Blogger Luv … Thanks again JOHN !
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.” 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 !
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 .
