If you want to eliminate fear out of your life, the simplest way to do so is talk to a kid. Kids have no fear to a degree and I guess that’s what gets them in trouble at times. But think of this, what do you have the greatest memories from and you more intense moments? Your childhood right? Think of all the careless, carefree things you did without hesitation when you were young? What kind of feelings did it give you then and what feeling does it give you now just thinking about it?
My kids do just that for me. Not only do they bring me back in time, but they say to me, mom stop worrying just do it. So little by little I am. Yesterday though I missed an opportunity of a life time. I had the chance to go with both my sons(13 and 14) on a flight lesson over Piseco Lake in NY. Why? Because I was afraid. That fear slighted me of something so amazing. How stupid can I be???
I guess I can’t beat myself up too much. Baby steps right? I fly high on the swings with them, I race on bicycles with them, we play manhunt at night, and we tell spooky stories by the fire. I’m getting those feelings back and I feel like I’m starting life all over again. What a feeling!!!
Swing high on that swing my friends. Go for that rush you once had when you were younger. You never know if you’ll get that opportunity again.
It’s Friday and it’s been a long week. The kids are ready for a vacation and so are we.
I haven’t slept the past few nights because my mind has been going nonstop. I have taxes left to do besides our own. I’ve been subbing everyday and it snowed again last night lol. Yes snow in upstate NY one more time.
It’s time to regroup and get with the program. The key is to get back on track. Stay focused and gave a purpose in life. Am I saying this for you or me? Today it’s a little bit of both.
Keep moving. If I can so can you.
I love Googling quotes and finding ones like this. It’s simple and yet couldn’t be more true. Love and appreciate the little things in life like your beating heart. Once you recognize this gift, everything else will come a little bit easier.
It seems like a good portion of our lives we are always waiting. Waiting at my doctors appointment(like I am now), waiting to hear if I got the job interview I am hoping for, waiting to see if we are getting anymore snow lol, just waiting. Muggy sitting on the couch, waiting lol.
Thank God for the internet! Lol
Happy Valentines Day!! ❤️❤️❤️
I just scrolled back to a blog post I did two years ago this coming March and I am happy to say I feel accomplished. It’s not that I accomplished anything major but I did continue on with my blog and I’m still here today. So yes it’s possible to finish and continue what you started. At times I feel like I can’t but that two year old post just confirmed and reassured me as well as gave me the confidence to keep going and so can you!! Never give up! Anything is possible. That two year old post is found under “My Story” section. Very interesting. Wow. It’s amazing to go back and see what happened through the years. Good, bad, or ordinary it’s interesting to see how life truly evolves.
