I'm sure you've picked up on the fact that I get a little stressed out every now and then. It happens to us all. My only trouble is that I always have a base level of frustration from my knee enigma. It comes with the chronic illness territory.
Ask in order to understand, and do not ask in order to find fault, for surely the ignorant man who wants to learn resembles a man of knowledge, and surely a man of knowledge who wants to be difficult resembles an ignorant man who wants to find fault. &nbs
A few years ago, we had a weekend long conference at my church, The Tabernacle, where we were taught extensively on the Power of Prayer, and how to pray effectively. I ran across some of the notes of that conference, and felt led to share them.
BAKED SWEET POTATOES: BAKED AND STUFFED WITH FETA AND SUNDRIED TOMATOESI have a confession: the thought of a sweet potato casserole topped with marshmallows makes me gag.That’s right. I said it.There has always been that dilemma when you go to someone’s house for Thanksgiving or Christmas and there is it. With a more prominent place than the turkey.It’s too sweet.It’s…got marshmallows on it.It’s not right.Yes, I am a sweet potato snob.
I was linked to an article on facebook today entitled How Can I Tell My 15-year-old Daughter She is Awful at Writing?Good grief, people.The article discusses the author's feelings of betrayal and hurt feelings when her mother criticized her artwork as a child, and how much of a struggle it still is as an adult to draw or paint or create art.Something in that resonated with me a bit.
November 25, 2001.Praveena lay on her bed, staring at the ceiling fan. It rotated at maximum speed, and she was tried to make out the wings; it was her favourite past time. Whenever she felt sad, happy — or anything at all — she would lock herself inside her room and stare at the fan. It tired her eyes and helped her fall asleep. She needed a lot of that too; her workload was mounting higher than ever before.
I had plans for today. Part of those plans included searching out some recipes and outlining my blog posts for the next week or so.Recipes were searched and a couple of recipe books were purchased. But, that blog post outline didn't happen.*sigh*I mean, it's okay. It's not like I can't outline tomorrow, right? Right! Blog posts will happen when they happen. Though it may take a few minutes, I can always come up with something to post. Hell, yesterday it was just a video of a favorite song. That works.
This is the week that I sing a love song to Zappos! Join me in my journey through the ten core values.Zappos Core Value #6: Build Open and Honest Relationships with CommunicationHere’s an oldie but goodie: You start working at a new company and your manager tells you that she has an “open door policy.” You have to be there a little while before you can determine whether your manager’s door is open just a crack or all the way (and whether that crack is wide enough for you to jam your foot in).
We all have something unique about us...It's time to shine are uniqueness to the world and be ourselves... I'm Free Spirited | Confident | Caring... What do you have to share to the world and others around you?-Tammy D-
Today I was perusing Facebook, and I came across an article saying that Eminem has Aspergers Syndrome.The article cited song lyrics in which he mentions Aspergers Syndrome, and another song in which he describes being "the type of kid that would always think the sky is falling," and wonders, "Why am I so differently wired? Am I a martian? What kind of twisted experiment am I involved in?
"I wish I had some wine to lube up these knees."
A sentence I actually said aloud tonight. (After I decided I was in for the night and didn't want to trek back out to buy wine.)
I only spent about an hour and a half with my niece's Girl Scout troop tonight putting Christmas trees together for an upcoming charity event in our town. I put together four trees by myself ranging in size between four and six feet.
We weren't talking monster trees here.
I was trying to find socks for my daughter. She'll be thirteen in January and wears a size 10.5 shoe. She didn't fit in the traditionally-sized socks, we needed industrial-sized socks. Well, all the fun socks were only in the smaller sizes. I continued to the styles and part my way through the colorful sea of socks hoping to find something that would be fashionable yet still giant-sized.
Online bullying is a real problem. I have had it done to me countless times, don't let it happen to you. If you see something, say something.Xx, KellyKelly WonderlinKellyWonderlin.ComKellyWonderlin@gmail.com
1.) Create a sign up sheet for every day in November and then fill in each daily slot with your name. Put a warning on top of the page: "Failure to write on the time you've committed to on this sheet will carry a fine of $5.00." I don't know about you, but I love my $5 bills.
If you are using your blog to support sales and marketing, you can't afford to throw spaghetti on the wall and hope that something will stick.Here are 4 things to cover (not necessarily in one single post :)) for sales- and conversion-focused content:
Listen to every 7 out of 10 teenagers and they will tell you their mom doesn't like them. . Who didn't think like that? There were times I didn't think I was my mother's true daughter. My kid brother sometimes think so too. Growing up in the 80s was a lot different than growing up in this computer age. Raising children nowadays is like rearing a chicken using the free range method. They wake up in the morning, eat and roam around, pecking at whatever their beaks find, sun bath and play in the rain. They find their way home to sleep in the evening.
Many people were shocked to learn earlier this week that Robin Williams died with Lewy Body Dementia.While most people have heard of Alzheimer’s Disease, the most common form of dementia, not as many know about Lewy Body Dementia – or that it is the second most common form of dementia. Both Robin Williams and Estelle Getty, who played Sophia on “The Golden Girls”, and probably the most widely known celebrities with Lewy Body Dementia, were both initially misdiagnosed.
Two blogging days combined into today because I am going on a short trip tomorrow and I won't be blogging. write about a lesson learned at a young age and who taught it to you. write about a childhood fear and if you overcame it or why you may still have it.Great.
Almost two years ago, I was approached by MyProtein to review some of their products! I was happy enough with a big bag of protein powder, a huge tup of almond butter and another huge tub of cashew butter. When my post went live, I sent through the link to my contact. He responded to say they were really happy with the post and would I be interested in joining their affiliate scheme!
As we were sharing cupcakes with my son's friends in Adventurers, the program director said, "Mom, he is eight now. You have 10 more years with him..." I sighed and agreed with her. Ten more years. That's it. I have taken care of him for eight years. I am staring down a not-so-long corridor of 10 more years. It really does not seem that long anymore, getting him to 18.
It took a few days of seeing "Today I am thankful for..." posts on Facebook before I realized that it's November and therefore everyone is sharing what they're thankful for this month. It might have taken me a few days to realize it because not as many friends are posting them like they have the last couple of years. Or maybe Facebook's algorithms are preventing me from seeing all my friends have to be thankful for? Either way, I've decided to do the same, but in a once-a-week blog post like I did last year. (Hey, it makes NaBloPoMo a little easier on me!)
