Blank Slate


imageI love this time of year when the days get longer and we have more daylight. It is also the time of year when my soul longs for a change or growth in a new direction. A feeling of being stagnate is one I try to avoid but one in which I find myself in on occasion. I have made efforts, to get out of my comfort zone, and stretch my idea of who I am but I am feeling that it is not enough. Change is in the air. I am not sure where it will lead or what direction it will take me. I only know I am ready. I am open to new ideas and ready to pursue my passions. All of which are good for the soul!




Back In Action


It has been far too long and I miss writing. I made a promise to myself and I am ready to begin writing for my blog again. I took a break, for a variety of reasons, but I feel now is a good time to return.

I will be posting 2 entries by the end of the weekend and then on a regular basis.

Stay tuned!



A Change in Perspective


I miss writing for my blog! There I have said it! It has been just about 2 weeks since I posted in my blog.

Life has moved on in my life. Summer has officially ended for me. A return to work and school for all. Routines are new and tried out to see what works and what doesn’t. It is a matter of trial and error these first few weeks. Also, back to school nights are done. Grateful for that!

I intend to have a creative outlet each day. Even if it is just 15 minutes. I plan on cross stitching or writing during this time set aside. It will cultivate my creative side and help me to focus better on the other area of my life . I love creating things.

My first posting, not that things have settled, will be this Wednesday. I hope to post weekly either on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.

Thanks for reading,

Back on Track


Things have been incredibly hectic as I settle into a new school year and attend to all that goes with that! Looking forward to life settling down and adapting to a new schedule. I miss writing terribly and feel a bit lost not doing it! It is as if I lost a piece of me. I love all of the roles in my life, but I right now I miss a few things that are just for me. Such as reading a great deal and writing. Both are great stress relievers : )  Here is to writing in the next few days!

Never lose your passions!

Lessons Learned




Two weeks ago tomorrow I embarked on my newest venture of blogging. I feel excited and renewed in spirit as this continues to enfold. My goal is to continue to write about family issues, being optimistic, and striving for new goals. There is never a shortage of ideas on any of those topics. I intend to write/blog 3 times weekly and will publish on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

Throughout my life I have always loved to learn and I am confident that this will always be a component of who I am–a life long learner! I hope that I have passed this on to my daughters as well as the students I come into contact with each year. With that being said, here are a few lessons I have learned in my writing up to this point:

1) Writing is cathartic.

2) It is vital to write from the heart.

3) It is more productive, for me, to express thoughts and ideas through writing rather than speaking in person.

4) I have surprised my daughters (I also hope I have inspired them a bit, too!)

5) Always Be True To Who You Are!–These are words I encourage my daughters with consistently. These words, I feel, sum up a vast amount of life lessons and these same words also apply to the purpose of my blog. It is important to maintain an authentic voice, in each blog posting, so that you do not go off course in your blog.

I look forward to more blogging and additional lessons learned!
