I Truly Love my Life

Sons are a blessingI truly do love my life, I feel blessed to have three AMAZING children. I have a roof over our heads. I have been self employed for four years. I have amazing friends and while on my dating ventures I am meeting some more amazing people. I am truly blessed.

Sometimes it’s so difficult to realize what it is you are thankful for when it’s staring you in the face every day. Hidden blessings seem to be passing by me every day and yet I fail, at times, to notice them as blessings. When my two older kids, who normally are butting heads, sit down to play something together or walk down the driveway hand in hand; those are true happy moments, small blessings.

IMG_20121211_190233When my youngest stops from doing whatever hyper activity he is doing just to say “I love you Mama” that is a true moment worth savoring since more often than not his favorite saying is “I hate you” even though he seems to say it in the most sweet way, it’s still sad to hear him say that.

When my daughter comes home from being gone for two days and just wants to feel my arms around her in a big hug. NO words. Just a hug. That is a blessing. When my daughter doesn’t call me mean once a day, that is a blessing.

IMG_20121211_164412Even when my kids do the most crazy off the wall things – that is a blessing- because I know they are comfortable enough with me and in my home to be who they want to be, to test limits, to figure out who they are as individuals in a zone where they know Mama will love them always.

I have shown my kids unconditional love and they have shown me blessings in disguises one after another, every day. I love my life and it’s always nice to remember that the little things really count the most.

Not Perfect, Not Imperfect, Just Me

I love that many people simply love me for being me. Then there are others who hate me for being me, although I haven’t actually had a face to face with anyone who truly hates but for every like there is a dislike I am certain of somewhere in this world. The Ying and Yang.

I admit sometimes I come off a bit arrogant but it’s not in the way I would think one to be arrogant, I never, ever feel better than anyone else but I try to stand tall and remind myself that I am awesome because we all are awesome, each person holds their own individual awesomeness inside and well why not stand tall and be proud about our own self?

I tell you why, too many people have taken time to put others down, to bully, to build themselves up by saying that the reason you are standing tall is because of some negative aspect such as being arrogant or being snobby, just to name a couple adjectives I have been called. In high school I had a little bit of snobby to me, for sure, but most have told me they thought I was a very outgoing, beautiful, nice young girl so apparently my snobby inside didn’t come up to the public as much as I had thought.

We are all built differently, we are all unique and we all have those moments instilled inside inside of us  from our environment we live in to catch a judgemental thought but we have the power to remind ourselves to be better than that – to not judge. You see you never know if someone is just having a bad day or if someone is truly hurting inside and just lashes out or stands tall in defense to hide the pain inside.

Today I want you to take a moment to remind yourself that you are not perfect, you are not imperfect … you are individual YOU. Take a moment to tell someone you love that they are awesome today. Practice telling random strangers that they are awesome too, I bet it warms yoru heart and theirs, and remember to remind yourself:   this act of kindness repays itself in the form of Karma over time!

What goes around comes around, are you putting out what you want returned to you?
