Recharge For Your Mental Health

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, to be the best person that you can be, you need to take time for you to recharge, refresh, re-energize. I know I know I know. Trust me, I do know that sometimes it just seems impossible to get 5 uninterrupted minutes. But I assure you, take those minutes. Because the reality is, if you are running on empty, you can't be the person that you need to be for yourself and for those that depend on you.

But that being said, I enjoy this.. writing.. blogging.. sharing ideas.. my thoughts... so I continue on .. for now... and I'm focusing on the joy of it all instead of numbers. Quite often I allow numbers to dictate my mood... If you read my blog Will Run For Ice Cream then you are aware that I battle

Great Autumn Crafts For Kids

I am not crafty.. like.. no... really I'm not... like glue my fingers together with glue, can't color in the lines and please don't ask me to cut something with scissors and expect it to be straight.

But there is something about the fall season... the upcoming holidays that makes me want to do crafty things with Lil Man.

A simple google search will spit out more crafty ideas than you physically have time to do.

But I wanted to share a few with you that I plan to do with Lil Man this year.

I thought these looked cute and fairly simple.
