The One Where I Made The Connection Between Self-Love And Getting Stuff Done

Lucille Ball Love Yourelf Quote

I've started yet another fitness kick. I've started yet another morning routine. I've started yet another writing challenge. Yall, I am the Queen of Starting Stuff Kingdom. I have earned a PhD in Starting Stuffology. I have mastered the martial art of Starting Stuffitsu. Finishing stuff...not so much. I have been trying to figure out why I am the way that I am. Like, seriously, I ask myself "Yooooo....why are you like this?!" on at least a weekly basis. I also ask my son this question, but that's a story for another day, lol. What I have started to realize (wait...can you start to realize something or once you have realized it even a little bit, is it just fully … [Read more...]

Finding My Happy Medium

Earth Angel Awakening by Michelle Gordon

I'm going to be honest - I haven't been enjoying blogging. I started this blog back in 2010, when I was in the third trimester of my pregnancy. It was meant to be an online diary of sorts. Anyone who really knows me knows that I love to write. I used to write all the time growing up. I also kept a series of diaries for several years that I wrote in nearly every day. It was my way of recounting and processing not only the events of the day, but how I felt about them. Some days I would whip out my diary as soon as something happened so that I could document it. Sometimes I wrote everything down at night. Sometimes it was just an observational exercise. Other times, it was more cathartic … [Read more...]

5 Reasons You Should Be an Early Bird

I’m sure you have heard the phrase “the early bird gets the worm”. It is a popular way of saying that people who get somewhere first have the best chances of getting what they need. However, my personal interpretation is that people who wake up early in the morning (like the birds that twitter outside my window every morning before the sun has even made an appearance) experience a variety of awesome benefits. Here are 5 reasons why you should be an early bird. 5 Reasons You Should Be An Early Bird You Have "Me Time" I don’t know about everyone else, but finding time to myself when my son is awake is no easy feat. And the time that I do get to myself during the day is typically spent … [Read more...]

Funducational Game of the Month: Balance Beans Review

Balance Beans Review

I am always on the lookout for games, toys, and apps that are not only fun, but educational. My son, Christian, loves playing games (what kid doesn’t), so I feel like if he is going to spend so much time playing them, I might as well focus on buying ones that will also teach him valuable concepts. Earlier this year, I was hanging out with my friend and her son (who happens to be my cousin and Christian’s best friend). We decided to go to Target and do a bit of “window shopping”. As can be expected when walking through a store with two curious and excited 5-year-olds, we ended up in the toy section. That is when I was introduced to Think Fun. I was specifically looking for games that … [Read more...]

Establishing a Work-at-Home Routine That Works

work at home routine

One thing that I was surprised to learn when I started genuinely working from home was that it can be a lot more challenging than working a more traditional job. The hours can be longer. It can be more difficult to know exactly when to clock in and when to clock out. One of the things that I struggled with was finding a good balance between my home/family life and my work life. I often found that there wasn’t enough of a boundary between these two aspects of my life. In fact, when things were out of balance, it posed some serious issues on both sides. As a work-at-home mom, it is critical that you are able to draw clear lines between your business and the rest of your life. That is why I … [Read more...]
