Wing Walking at 10 Feet Tall

Who is your super hero? Who do you look to when your bravery is at an all time low? I look to Hank. This child goes into doctor appointments more bored than scared. He looks at strangers like obstacles to avoid, not because he doesn’t know them, but because he just doesn’t have the time to deal with them. In his mind, he is 10 […]

The 5 People Closest To You!

The 5 People Closest To You!

Part of my parenting was to teach and remind my children to carefully monitor the people they associate with on a regular basis.   Why?  The five people closest to us will impact our own success and happiness in life.  Just this week, even at my age, I had to make a conscious choice to choose who would hang out in my space.  Yes, it […]

For example: after two years of sharing a bedroom and a bunk bed, the boys will be separated this summer, back into their own rooms.

I had a pretty great blog post all written and ready to publish. I’ll spare you the details, but this was the general gist…. via GIPHY   Personal development is a beautiful thing.

FFS, Have a Little Faith, Woman

It’s not that hard. We get what we put out there. Our external life echoes the thoughts we have running through our heads. If our thoughts are chaotic and uncontrolled, we get chaos. If our thoughts are fear-based, we get a life filled with anxious moments. If we have a million conflicting dreams and desires, we experience unfilled wishes. And if our thoughts are calm […]
