Sitting in my Car

  I'm sitting in my car, and I can't remember the drive into work, I can't remember getting here because I was so in depth with my everyday routine that I forgot what I did 10 minutes ago. Has this happened to you? Like pulling into Dunkin Donuts because you're use to doing it, or taking a right out of your driveway instead of a left when you need to change directions.  It's simple because your auto pilot goes off and your body takes over from what your mind use to think about, Scary I know! You're so use to doing it that you don't need to think about it anymore. I'm inspired to think what would happen if I...

The Power of counting to ten

The power of counting to ten is truly a great method for everyone, both small and old. I've been practicing the art of patience through the process of counting to ten for many years now. When I need a moment to think before I react, I'll count to ten. When I'm about to flip out after telling my kids the same thing over and over, I'll count to ten. When I'm about the send an email, say something I might regret I'll count to ten.  There's something that happens in that time-frame of counting to ten while taking deep breaths that really helps you thinking the process through before you act. I have to say I've walked away from many...

Its so annoying doing it yet you don't want it to end, that's how I feel about breastfeeding. It's so annoying to find time throughout the day to pump and then make sure that the bottles are clean, and more. You see my job requires me to be on the road traveling to and from clients. I spend most of my time on the road and when I'm not on the road I'm in an office full of other people. Super ideal when you're breastfeeding and need to pump. This is the...

Getting Sh*t Done!!

Today I took the day off the get Sh*t done. I'm sure we've all been there when the "to do" list just get's so long you don't have time to even think about it. I've learned that the best way to get things done it to stop thinking about it and JUST DO IT. quoting Nike... I know, I know what you're thinking because I do the same thing. Time is running out after a long day at work, running around with the kids and then just NOT having the energy or motivation to do any more at the end of the day.  It's okay to take sometime to yourself and get things done, even if it's not on your...

My Mother's Day Gift

Today I wear my sons pin he make me for Mother's Day... I very easily could have thrown it in my dresser and forgot about it, but then I would have missed seeing his face of excitement when I showed off his hard work.I had an epiphany, that one day he won't work hard making me a pin, he won't care if I wear it or even get excited for something so simple... I choose today to live in today's moment and soak it all in. Because today he DOES care and I don't want to miss it... ❤ You never know when it's going to be the last time you do something with your children. The last time they...
