Living Life to the Fullest

It isn’t easy living life to the fullest, each day a new issue, challenge, thought comes about that can make you question everything you have in your life. I have been reading a lot of articles, late at night, while the kids are asleep. I have found inspiration and strength in prayer as well. I thrive to live life to the fullest, it’s my mission. To me, if I live life to the fullest and take reasonable risks, learn from mistakes and move on, my kids learn how to do this too. While I don’t like making too many drastic […]

You Are Part of a Team, Not a Quitter

When it comes to children playing sports do you require them to stay on the team for the duration of the season and explain that to them from the day they decide to join? Well when it comes to sports, I am new to having two kids in sports as of last school year, and I always explain my expectations to my kids; once they start a sport and are part of the team they must continue out the season. I feel that unless there is some health reason or major reason as to why they can not participate in […]

Rules Of Blogging in 2012 For Myself

I have made a decision with myself to keep some things private, mainly relationship status, issues or similar that are very personal in nature.

Cheerleading and Soccer Mama

I am officially a soccer mom and a mom of a cheerleader! Who knew they offered cheer-leading at grade four. I am very excited that Ki wanted to do cheer-leading in addition to soccer this year!

Busy Busy Bee

In high school I went by the name Bee, my initials. So today it only makes sense that I say I am a busy, busy bee! From a move, to trying to get settled in while waiting for my mom to get all of her things out and now other basement issues, I swear the idea of focusing to work or do anything except try to organize a cluttered place isn’t in my mind. I can’t handle much more at this time and so I find myself sleeping early and withdrawing myself from a normally social and workaholic mindset. School […]

It Is What We Perceive It To Be

I was thinking the other day about perceptions, and it’s so true that life is what we perceive it to be. This holds true for any area of your life. Think about it, if you perceive your body image as that of a fat, no good person then you will feel like a fat, no good person. Reality is you need to look at every area of your life and perceive it to be a positive place. Yes you may not be totally happy with your body image, yes your life may appear to be in a rough place right […]
