Learn From Your Failures | Failure Isn’t Final

Failure.  It’s an ugly word, isn’t it? Ever since we were in elementary school, getting a big fat red F was bad news bears. We want to avoid failure like the plague, but it seems inevitable that we will all face some form of it at a point in our lives, doesn’t it? Why we fail Last summer, a popular article was released from Success Magazine entitled The 7 Reasons Why We Fail, here were the subheadings: Lack of persistence…

My Ectopic Pregnancy Story

My Ectopic Pregnancy Story

* This post contains images that some might find graphic/disturbing. Out of all of the blog post ideas I have jotted down in my Notes, I never fathomed that this was a post I’d be authoring.  In fact, having 3 healthy full-term births in the past gave me confidence that such a thing could never happen to me.  I’m over here thinking I’m fertile myrtle, all my husband has to do is wink at me and BOOM 9 months later we have…

Why I gave up blogging and came back (again)

Why I gave up blogging and came back (again)

writing feels good. It’s a release of sorts, for my soul, and I think it’s good for me. It’s a way to express myself, and hopefully help others in some small way. Sometimes we have to treat this journey called life like a puzzle, fitting in one small piece at a time, until it comes together.

Nothing New Under The Sun

Nothing New Under The Sun

The truth is, we are never going to be there, we are never going to feel completely satisfied here on earth. If we don’t learn where true contentment comes from, and start enjoying the moment and the journey we are on, we will constantly struggle with that not enough mentality.

Just Jump! – Especially if You’re Afraid

Just Jump! – Especially if You’re Afraid

On any given day, I have at least 5 great ideas before my feet hit the floor in the morning. My brain gears are constantly turning, and they slow down for nothing. My problem lies therein, ideas come to me so quickly sometimes that I can’t grab a hold of them before they fade away into the morning fog, or take a backseat to my desire to run towards the smell wafting from my coffee pot…

Find Your Why

Find Your Why

It gives you a fresh gust of wind when things seem hopeless, and picks you up when life inevitably knocks you down, countless times. Your Why is your purpose in life, what you strive for. It makes you who you are and makes what you do evident to those around you. Your Why keeps you aiming for the goal. It’s the belief that what you’re doing is bigger than you, and it’s the very legacy that will live on long after you.

Find Time to Blog – or do Anything!

Honestly, if you’re going to get anything done in life, you really need to make a strategy. Without a Plan of Action, you’ll be mindlessly moving throughout your day. From the time your feet hit the floor in the morning until your head hits that pillow at night, it will seem to fly by, and looking back you’ll wonder what you actually got done. Friend, you need a sense of accomplishment as motivation to keep going. You need to get your priorities in line and organize your time and life to make the life you want.

The Doubt Monster

The Doubt Monster

Part of me thinks that the doubt is holding me down because I’m meant to do this, and the enemy of my soul does not want to see this succeed. Why would it be easy if it’s worth it? Why would it be worth it if it was easy? Everyone would be doing it, and succeeding. It’s NOT going to be easy. It’s going to be really freaking hard.

Breaking Free

Breaking Free

Alright, I’m putting myself out there. This is not a very flattering image of me, but I love it anyway because it was one of those moments. The type of moment where you are just lost in pure bliss and fun, without regard of anyone around you thinking you’ve lost your mind. Yeah, I just teeter-tottered with my 12 year old niece and my youngest two children in the middle, yes, my hair is a frizzy mess from ridiculous New…
