Physical activity is an easy way to track success. The mental/emotional battles may be harder. BUT I came across this story I wrote a handful of years ago, and two worlds collided! The physical with the emotional! I can do this!!

So I slacked this week. Slacked in a easy way to fix, but these was a lesson to be learned in it! Rather learn my lesson here then in something bigger!

I wrote this with a specific time/location in mind. A specific time in my life when I literally participated in group translation. HOWEVER looking at a bigger picture isn't that just a example of life? We look towards others examples to get an idea of an outcome. We look towards other, or better Upwards to find guidance and explain situations in a way we understand.
ANYWAYS...whatever the lesson you may get from it, it is still a good story and an interesting…Continue

Wow it's been 5 years since I moved across the country to a small island. I moved to get a fresh start. Funny thing is I think the "Fresh start" actually started just recently. Read the story to see how a mid-west gal makes it out to the islands. There will be more Hawaii memories coming... oh boy there are some good ones. Young and in love stories...Free as a bird stories...BROKE stories! Living beach life and enjoying my time…Continue

Every year there is something that changes in your Christmas "traditions". This year was my first year not waking up with my little man. We didn't rush downstairs to see what Santa brought. Nope I picked him up at noon and a new life of Christmas day traditions went from there. The whole holiday season was filled with new traditions...Next year will be a whole new story again..…Continue

So I have a sports enthusiast on my hands. It's obvious everywhere I go. He wants to be able to play...He wants to be dressed just like them. He wants to join in and learn.
Funny mom tale...I'm sure you have similar ones :)

Okay, this one is a special holler out to all the single moms out there! First time having to let the ex take care of your kiddo(s) solo is a big deal. A HUGE DEAL. It's an odd feel, that compiles and changes throughout the day. This doesn't even begin to hit on everything, but its a glimpse...just something else exposed :)

Hey MOMs...how much do you get to stop and remember those last moments before baby? Those days leading up to life changing completely. It's been a couple years since I have, but it sure was fun reminiscing. I'm sure I'll do it again in a couple more years. One day my little man will get a kick out of the story too. SIGH boy-o-boy how times flies!!

Why is a big question in my house! To be honest it's driving me a bit crazy, but then I stopped. I stopped and thought about it a bit deeper. Maybe I shouldn't be going crazy, maybe there is beauty in that 3 lettered, one word question!
So I drive kids on field trips and to school. While on the bus we are allowed to listen to one radio station that has been deemed “appropriate”. The station may be have DJ's that talk clean, but the songs....the songs are what are most shocking. Sadly they are on every station...

Fall is beautiful. I can’t tell you which season I love better, Fall or Spring. I find them both amazing in their own essence. Both seasons bring a myriad of colors and smells. They are both transitional and bring much change. Spring bring life preparing for the coming summer, while Fall settles us in for the coming winter. I think festivals when I think Spring and Fall. I think layering – Fall boots, scarves, and sweaters – Spring rain boots, dresses, light jackets. The color schemes are…Continue

As the mother of a young boy we are always playing very lively games. Monsters, rescuing from fires, flying like superheroes, and much more are always attacking us. There isn’t a moment to sit when you have a little boy. (Some have joked with me that I had to train constantly with running just to keep up with my little guy, and the races I’ve trained for are just secondary.)

A little bit of admitting and apologizing…
School was easy, I didn’t have to try very hard. I’m sorry to all my teachers whom I could have learned so much more from had I applied myself more, but I didn’t have to. A/B honor roll wasn’t that much work, and I was okay with that.
Well I’m not writing a post about school subjects that I need to re-learn, but rather life lessons. I’m sure there would have been some carry over if I…Continue
