A Big Parenting Mistake

When I was eight years old, I wanted to be a singer. When I was nine years old, I wanted to be an actress. And when I was ten years old, I wanted to be a writer. As I entered my teen years, my ideas of what I wanted to be varied each year, but wanting to be a singer, actress, and writer never left my mind....more

2014 Bucket List Update

I wrote my first ever bucket list 3 months ago. On it, there were many things that I considered to be goals. I'd previously thought that a bucket list had to be a compilation of fun and adventurous things only, then learned different and decided to write my own. Since that time, a few things have happened, and new things have been unofficially added to the list. But, since it has been 3 months and I only gave myself 6 months to get 25 things completed, I think it's high time I do an update. 2014 Bucket List! ...more

10 Tips on How to Work From Home

It has been almost a month since I decided to renounce my conventional 9 to 5 life and pursue my nagging professional goals as if someone was already paying me a substantial salary to do it. Some people might call this daring while others may say it’s preposterous. After all, as a woman already in her thirties, shouldn’t I have gotten this dreaming business out of the way already? Shouldn’t I be properly settled into a comfortable suburban existence with an actual career trajectory, or children, or if I was a real over achiever, both?...more

A Blog Break Feels Great

It feels great.  What a weight lifted from my shoulders.  I'm not thinking about how many days until I must create a new post for my site.  I'm not hoping for any new subscribers.  I'm not wondering if this one will be the 'hit' of the month or the year.  I'm on a blog break.  So, what am I doing here, you might be wondering. ...more

Mid-Year Bucket List

I recently read about a Summer Bucket list from the Crafty Side of Sarcasm and thought to myself, "I can do this. I can make a bucket list for a period of time, not my whole life at once or many years." So, here I am making and publishing a bucket list....more

I'm Focused and Ready

It’s been a couple of months since I’ve blogged.  A lot has been going on in my personal life.  Instead of being mature and rational and dealing with my life, I decided to make poor choices and avoid my feelings and my life.  I’ve spent the last three months numb.  I’ve cried.  I’ve called into work.  I’ve probably gained 10 extra pounds.  I’ve been a total mess....more

GOOD SURPRISES....BELIEVING THAT YOU CAN......THE DEVIL AND THE COMPUTER....RISE ABOVE THE LAUGHTER.....COMMON SENSE.......

BELIEVING IS HALF OF GETTING THERE…..So much of achieving our dreams is simply believing that we can achieve it…..All things start with an idea….an idea that it is possible to achieve. We don’t act on things we know we cannot create…but we do act on things and beliefs that we can create…..It all starts with a belief…..Without believing that we can create what it is we want we will never know if we can….for it takes belief to push us out there into the world to make things happen…....more

GRAB YOUR DREAM.....When The Right Dream Is The Wrong Dream......Boxed In.....

GRAB YOUR DREAM…. Sometimes in life we only get one real big opportunity…..Sometimes we get more than one time to grab our dream…..When our dream comes around and it is the real deal….I believe in grabbing it, hugging it, and giving it lots of love….because living our dream doesn’t come around everyday….Sometimes people have to wait a lifetime to live their dream…Some people simply pass by their dream thinking they will wait on a better time....Perhaps so, but not me.......more
