Good People, Make Bad Decisions

Good People Make Bad Choices

I look all over the Internet from Twitter to Facebook to Alexa hot list of links each day, every single day. One thing that I am seeing a lot of is this finger pointing. Did you know that when I was 18 years old that I got a DWI? How about my drinking of alcohol that started well before I even want to admit to anyone, because I know someday my children may read this and they do not need to know an age I started. My children do know that I started drinking alcohol and had sex way too […]

Shh…I’m Letting You In On A Light Bladder Leakage Tip! #sp

Many thanks to Poise for sponsoring today’s story, and keeping me confident! I have talked about light bladder leakage (LBL) before, and I am going to talk about it again. As I become more educated on LBL I am realizing that this is a pretty common, but embarrassing issue for many females. It seems that our bladders cannot always hold up their strength after we give birth or lead a very active lifestyle. Sometimes all it takes is for my child to put me into a laughing fit for me to feel it, LBL and then I get so upset […]

My Son has had Amazing Progress #autism

I seriously am so happy about this autism diagnosis for my son Aj, while many may wonder why I feel that way, because no one wants to have a child that may struggle, but seriously? Aj is probably the most well rounded, honest children I have ever met. Aj says what he means and he means what he says. Aj looks at the world in such a simple manner that he is teaching me more and more each day. I just love spending time listening and talking with Aj, he has been medicine free since January 20, 2014 and it […]

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 […]

I Choose Me

I watch as you head down a path that I have seen before. I sit back and shake my head in worry over what is going to happen to you. I wonder if there is anything I can do. Then I realize …. I cannot break me to help you anymore. I cannot live a life where my inner peace is being challenged with every moment. I cannot handle watching you make decisions that continue on a path of dark. Then I realize … I can lead a happy life, I can make things better. For me. I can choose […]

Cherish Every Breath You Have

I have this habit of observing people. I don’t mean to do it, I simply happen to be a person who listens well, watches closely and takes in every moment with any person I come into contact with in person or virtually. It doesn’t take long to realize who is a positive, kind person and who is a miserable, not-so-kind person. I’ve been through a storm of crap in my life; I could go on and on with all of the bad stuff that has happened to me. I don’t. Why? I feel that, to dwell in the bad things […]

Where Did People Come From Mama?

I am a huge advocate of showing our kids the various beliefs in our world, to the best of my abilities, so when we were sitting down to read our bedtime story and Aj asked; “Where did people come from? Like how did the first person get on this Earth, Mama?” I paused. Then I had to figure a way to answer, “well buddy, there are a lot of different beliefs. Some believe God created the first humans, but others feel it’s more science based.” Aj says, “yeah like we started somehow from little bugs, but how does that happen, […]

Motherly Advice from Post Grains Cereal Survey

Information I am about to share comes from the Post Great Grains Cereal Survey that was conducted by Wakefield Research among 1,000 nationally representative women ages 40+, between January 24th and January 31st, 2014, using an email invitation and an online survey. There are very few survey results that hit my inbox and make me say, “yes I must share that”. The line that grabbed me with the survey completed by Post Grains Cereal was this; 1 in 3 women believe the most important lesson about womanhood a mother can give is “Don’t let a man dictate your decisions,” followed […]

It All Starts With Repeating The Lessons you Teach

As  parent we all want to ensure that our children are growing up to be a respectful part of society, but what happens when you are raising a child with autism high functioning who doesn’t comprehend empathy or compassion? I think we all can agree that having compassion and empathy are important skills to function in society, right?! The question is, how can we teach these skills to children who don’t pick up on social ques in the ways the rest of us do? I am not sure how you teach it or how you have worked with your autistic […]

Reasons to savour that bean

by  tico_24  Most of the things we enjoy eating and drinking often turn out to be not that good for us. In the past, coffee has often had negative associations with things like caffeine dependence, for example. However, for anyone who likes a few cups of coffee during the day, there’s good news. Coffee may actually be good for your health! Recent research has shown that drinking a cup of coffee will provide you with more antioxidants than a cup of green tea – and for those of us who can’t stand drinking bitter green tea that will make welcome reading.
