Sometimes you just need


You time. Never feel guilty about indulging. Self-care is so important and it doesn’t have to cost a penny.

Going to school at age 48


Yes, I’m scared. But, I look at it this way. My kids are 14 and 15 and are able to wipe their own buts and basically eat when they feel hungry lol, so I feel it’s time to do something for myself that is going to hmmm how do I put this…. make me feel whole. Huh? Don’t people usually look for a partner to make them feel “whole?” Lol true and having a companion does help in that department but this is different.

Before I go off on a tangent, my point to this post is my age, 48, I’m going back to school. I hate saying I all the time. I don’t want to make this about me. My posts are intended to talk to people out there who think they can’t in life. I know that there are millions of people out there who think it’s too late for them to do something like this. Then there are others that say bs I can.  I’m standing in the middle but I just fell off the fence and I’m going for it. I am also doing it because this is exactly what my older sister did. At the age of I believe 52 she completed her Bachelors. Nothing and no one stopped her. She is a domestic violence advocate as well as a published author. At times she struggled mentally, financially, and yes physically(medical issues) but she did it and nothing stopped her.

Over the past 2 weeks I also decided that I am not going for my teaching certification. I am going for Masters in Social Work. MSW. That took a lot for me to say. Whew… so nervous but freakin excited. There are so many reasons why I switched to this but the main reason is I love helping people figure out life. Plain and simple.

There is so much more to this but I have to get going so I’m going to stop here for now. But ya’ll out there reading this, have an amazing day.

Remember there is nothing that you can’t do in life. Nothing. You are the only one stopping you from achieving your goals and following your dreams.

Yes, it’s scary and hard at times but you can do it.

Get out of your comfort zone and change your life. Start now.

Be amazing


BUT THE BEST.  First and foremost, never doubt yourself in any situation. Don’t ever let anyone make you feel you are incapable, lesser, or anything less then the best. You are the best.

If they want to challenge you, take it on. Challenge them back. Stand up for your beliefs and have confidence in yourself.

I’d say if you are reading this post, you already have reservations about any thoughts you might be having or even a decision and conviction you are hesitant about standing up for. Don’t change your mind. Stand your ground.

Believe  and take pride in yourself. Only you have the power to stand up for you. Be your own advocate.

You are amazing, worthy, capable, and the best there is. Don’t stop now. Keep going and follow through on your dreams and goals. I know you can do it and so do you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t discount the little things


So I saw these 3 lil pigs last week at Tj Maxx and debated over buying them. I passed on it and then all week I agonized if they were going to be there this weekend. Well, I lucked out and they were. They were on clearance for $10 bucks.

It’s amazing how the littlest thing can make you happy.

Once I really started appreciating the little things in life, that is when I seriously started feeling at peace with myself.

It doesn’t really require that much effort, time, or money to just take time for yourself and enjoy something. Like a cup of tea. Heat up the water and stick your tea bag in it. If you are on a budget(like myself)what I do is go to somewhere like Tj Maxx. Go to the dry goods section where the teas, nuts, chocolates are. Pick out a tea that peeks your interest. A kind with a pretty box. Go home and make that freakin cup of tea and enjoy it. Put some tunes on, pull up wordpress, facebook, pinterest, and just chill.

Enjoy your day.
