Motivated by doubt

Where do you get your motivation from? Is it your family, an inspiring YouTube video, or perhaps an encouraging “note?” There is something or someone that gives us the exact drive and ambition we need, to not only get us through the day, but get us to our goals. Although my students are some ofContinue reading “Motivated by doubt”

Everyday

To all the mothers (whether by birth, adoption, or surrogacy), I want you to know that you are loved, constantly thought of, appreciated, and more than anything, you’re wanted and needed. While most of you are only celebrated once a year, I want you to know, Mother’s Day is not your day…everyday is! If itContinue reading “Everyday”

Day off

If you were looking for a post or your daily note of encouragement, here it is. Sometimes, you need to learn to take the day off, and take some time for yourself! It’s easy to get burned out, but even harder to recover. If you are tired, exhausted, and restless, that’s your body speaking, soContinue reading “Day off”

Broken

Have you ever wondered why some people naturally gravitate towards you, and others don’t? Could your personality, style or “vibe,” be the reason for the love, yet also the hate? It’s evident that everyone you meet won’t be fond of you, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t a likable person. What matters is whether orContinue reading “Broken”

Beautiful timing

Majority of my themes are reoccurring, but I’ve noticed so are a lot of my problems (and others). I’m repetitive with my messages, but it’s only because I’m trying to convince and help you, and myself too. While I do believe what I put out, it can be really hard to take it in. Oddly,Continue reading “Beautiful timing”

More like Abraham

One thing a kid (or anyone for that matter) never want to hear is, “Why can’t you be more like your brother/sister?” In my opinion, it’s not right to make an unfair assessment of someone, based off the character or behavior of their sibling(s). Everyone has their own sense of individuality, so “grouping,” shouldn’t beContinue reading “More like Abraham”

Didn’t get the memo?

In case you were not informed, or simply need reminding, you can do anything you want to, at any age you are, or any place you are at. You don’t have to be a person of status, to create any. You don’t have to have money to do everything, just some things. You don’t haveContinue reading “Didn’t get the memo?”

Over the honeymoon

Most recently, I was friends with this counterfeit, I mean guy. Yeah, I’m about to “go there.” I befriended him for several reasons, and stop being his friend for more reasons than I can count. I loved a lot of good qualities he had, until I found out he actually had none. It’s almost asContinue reading “Over the honeymoon”

I don’t want it

I find it so cute, yet funny, when I see a baby being fed. When their mom or dad is feeding them something they enjoy, they’ll clap their hands, bounce up and down, and even make a face of contentment. On the contrary, if you feed them something they don’t like, they’ll close their mouth,Continue reading “I don’t want it”
