"Always do what you are afraid to do"-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Out of all the things that I said I planned to be when I grew up, I can assure you being verbally abused/attacked, overworked and underappreciated were not a part of those plans. Entrepreneurship was not necessarily a part of my thought process when I younger. Everyone around me went to work. Professional “corporate America” … Continue reading Overqualified, Overworked, and underpaid?

I've been blessed to be able to give birth 4 times!!! My oldest being 12, I would say I'm a "seasoned" mom. (I'm sure that will cause laughter from the moms with teen and adult children) I haven't had the opportunity to go through the teen years, which I'm sure are brutal. However, I've had … Continue reading A Toddler Story
Over the past month I've been working on my goals. I've found that setting clear goals for myself keeps me productive and brings a certain amount of peace in my life. I've been focused on keeping the negative influences out and the positive in. This has caused me to change the way I do things … Continue reading Out with the toxic…in with the positive!

I don't know why I feel such a great responsibility for the ones around me, but I do. As a result of being somewhat of a people … Continue reading Boundaries….A bit of a Rant
Toddlers are annoying. Definitely my least favorite stage, with the peak being around 26 months.( That's 2 months after their second birthday for THOSE people) I would like to skip over that period all together. That's the potty training period. That's also the period when you have to explain to a 40 pound little person … Continue reading Man Down!!! My toddler has been sick for days….BUT
I wrote this poem some months ago in the middle of a conversation I was having. I recently read it and immediately thought to trash it. I read it a few more times and started to remember the feelings I was having while writing this. By the fifth or sixth time reading it I thought … Continue reading Subconscious Reality
I've been going through poems I've written, short stories I've begun, and countless other writings I have. I'll be posting some work to the blog. I have to be honest, some may be good, some may not be "to your liking". But I promise to do my best to: 1) Check for spelling and grammatical … Continue reading Old poetry and journals coming to YOU!!!!(Just a subtle FYI)
I've struggled with writing my New Year post. It's so many things I've been waiting to say but so many things stopping me. I think it has caused writer's block. In the times that I've wanted to write everything has seemed so "Ugh". But today, I had to meet my deadline. So "I fake got … Continue reading Sorry for the delay…..I was being a brat. Happy New Year! (Struggle with writer’s block)
