Celebrate Sisterhood

There’s such animosity that’s encouraged between women in society. You see it played in movies and experience it play out in real life. If they don’t know each other, they don’t like each other. They don’t even give each other a chance to see if they would. They judge each other from their hair to […]

A Piece of Me

It’s funny, as I opened my blog on a tab to start this draft, I wasn’t sure what I was going to write about. I noticed how much I loved the header images on the last three posts that were on my screen. I couldn’t help but smile and think how far I’ve come. Then I thought that maybe I should go back and update the images on my older posts. How in the world did I think those looked good? Continue reading “A Piece of Me”

Punishment Versus Consequences

We read a very interesting chapter last week in the Parenting Book Club. The chapter itself was about alternatives to punishment. Before I became a parent, I thought I’d be this very strict disciplinarian because I wanted well-behaved children. Once I became a parent, I remembered how the strict disciplinarian approach worked on me as a kid (not very well). Aside from it just making me be scared of getting in trouble, it didn’t really teach me anything other than to not get caught no matter how small the offense. There had to be another way, I just wasn’t aware of it. Continue reading “Punishment Versus Consequences”

As we’re about to step into a new month, it’s a great time for reflection. A time to evaluate the past month and what’s worked well for you, what you want to continue, and what you want to stop. This is a great way to keep your intention fresh in your mind and be open to ways to make it come to fruition. Continue reading “Set Your August Intentions”

Little Things

Sharing this beautiful flower I saw with you so it can help brighten your day ❤

No matter what you’re going through, there’s always something to be thankful for. If you’re going through a rough time, it can be easy to lose sight of the things that you have to be grateful for. I want to encourage you to look for something anyway. When you least feel like it is when you should do it most. Continue reading “Little Things”

Fun Rocks!

Having fun rocks! Sorry, I couldn’t resist. One thing I noticed about myself is as I grew out of adolescence and into adulthood was that I stopped having fun! Continue reading “Fun Rocks!”

Relativity & Perception

Something that’s been getting my attention lately is relativity. This ties into perception and how things aren’t always what they seem. Time, space, size, distance are all examples of things that are relative. Two minutes might not seem like much time if you’re waiting for food to heat up but getting to an airport two minutes late you could miss your plane. Twenty miles doesn’t seem like a long distance to drive but might seem like a daunting distance to walk. Continue reading “Relativity & Perception”
