This Little Blog

Sooooooo... I've been doing a lot of thinking lately. In fact, I've put my blogging here and at my other site Will Run For Ice Cream on the back burner for a bit. Why? Well, because trying to 'work' a blog requires a lot of time. It's not just the writing. It's the promoting! Because, well, if you don't promote, then basically no one sees it. And I had told myself that if no one sees it then why write it.

So, I stopped writing for awhile... because...
of time. There are only so many hours during the day. And honestly it is super discouraging to write something and notice that only a hand full of people actually saw it or read it.

But the reality is blogging was an outlet for me, and it still is. And I have truly missed that outlet. I'm not exactly sure yet how I'll keep up with both blogs. I had considered combing the two, but although I am the same person, I do have a variety of interests. And a lot of my running peeps probably don't visit this blog. Just like some of you reading this might not visit my Will Run For Ice Cream blog. It just isn't your thing.

So, since I'm currently not playing the numbers game, I'm currently going to keep both blogs and see what happens.

That being said... expect to start hearing more from me ...  I'm excited to see where my blogs take me with my own personal development. I hope you'll join me on my journey...

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss

What Summer Taught Me

This Summer has been a big learning experience - for both Lil Man and myself. Who knew that an amusement park could be such a learning experience for both of us. I watched as my little boy, all on his own, climbed stairs among strangers, learned how to wait his turn, slide down a water slide, and do it over and over again. I watched as other kids shoved him out of their way, cut in front of him as he stood patiently 'waiting for his turn'. Groves of bigger kids kept cutting in front of him, and I held back and gave him time to respond. This for me was a learning experience. See, people have to have room or space to grow. So I learned how to let go, let out the leash a little, and give Lil Man some space. The first time the kids pushed him aside, he really didn't know what to do. After a few minutes of this, I did intervene. I told him to get in line. Take his turn, and when it was his turn he was to go. And the next time as other kids pushed past him, it only took a few

Rejection

You'd think as many times as I've been rejected in my life that rejection wouldn't hurt anymore. Really, I can't count the number of times that I've been rejected, or slighted, or been on the receiving end of cruel words. I'm almost 40 for pete's sake. Rejection shouldn't bring tears anymore, but it still does. It just seems like I've been faced with it a lot lately. It started with the Running and has seemed to carry over into other parts of my life. I have spent most of my life on the sidelines watching other people. That's what happened with the marathon.   Once again, I'm on the side as others do things that I want to do. I trained. I had to have an unexpected surgery. I got injured. I couldn't run. It happens. It isn't the end of  the world. But what many don't realize is that there are numerous times in my life that I am on the sidelines, watching, wishing I was the one 'out there' - not the one watching. . But
