Choosing to be Better

A quick check-in as another week is nearing it’s end.

Sundays are notorious for being church, laundry, house cleaning, big meal cooking, sports watching or do nothing all day kind of days because the new week – be it a work week, school week or homemaker week – is about to begin.

Regardless of what you have to look forward to in the upcoming days, are you happy to face them as the same person you were yesterday? You probably met deadlines – barely, interacted with people in a not-so-great mood, started a new diet with a little enthusiasm and a lot of self-doubt, or had a mountain of items on your to-do list and only managed to check off the box for the things you didn’t get done. Maybe  your milestones were at the other end of the spectrum. Maybe you jogged that extra mile, drunk more water, or spent less time on social media and more time with family.

Whatever your flow was this week do it better next week. Think about what you can do to push yourself forward and what you need to do to eliminate those things that keep you stagnant. Make a greater effort to host a positive atmosphere because the energy you give off has a way of finding it’s way back to you. Take small steps each day to be better than you were yesterday. Remember, little things can turn into big things if you focus on it long enough. Just be wise about which little thing you want to grow.

Enjoy!

From a Mother to her Children

From a Mother to her Children

Sometimes there are things I want to say but don’t.  Sometimes there are things I do say that just doesn’t come out right. Sometimes I am wrong- I’m human.

Just know that the love I have for you is forever constant.  There is nothing that I wouldn’t do to keep you happy and keep you safe.

Your existence gives me the strength of a million men but also softens me more than what I imagine a sky full of white, fluffy clouds would feel like.

Without me, you wouldn’t exist but without you I would never have experienced the true beauty of life.  You are students who teach the teacher.

The spirit that feeds the soul.  My sun, my moon, my stars, my earth.  I loved you yesterday.  I love you today. I will love you always.
