Find Your Passion

For awhile, especially after I became a stay-at-home mom, I got so consumed with taking care of Lil Man, the house, Hubby, and keeping the household running (so to speak) that I put some of the things that I was passionate about on the back burner.

And that worked for awhile. But then the reality set in... I need those things. The things that I am passionate about help make me who I am. And I found that it's good to be passionate about something that is mine!

I know that some of you may not agree with this, but it's how I feel. And when I gave up my passion for awhile, not only did I miss it, but I missed having something that was my own. And I came to realize that I need that. I need a piece of my life that I own and that's for me.

Yes, I'm into running and fitness. I have tried to hold onto that - for my mental health and my physical health.

But one of my passions is this...
you are reading it... my blogs... and my social media.

For a time, I gave it up. My numbers were (and probably still are) so low that it really didn't seem to justify buying the domain name. And it did seem like a waste of time to try to keep up with them.

But the reality is.... this is mine (well and Google's since they own the domain ha ha) but it's my space... to write.. to share... and it does require work and attention.. but it's a passion of mine. And I enjoy sharing my passion with you.

I encourage you to find your passion. Find something that is yours - that you enjoy. Find something that helps to make you who you are.



I know through blogging and social media, that I've had to get thicker skin. People can be cruel (both strangers and people you love).

I've learned a lot along the way, and I continue to learn. But one thing I know for sure... is that doing something that's for me.. whether it's running, blogging, social media, coloring, or reading... when I follow my passion it not only helps me with being a better person, but it also helps me be a better Mom and Wife.

So, what's your passion?






Writing is one of my passions, and I'm stepping out there on faith to follow my dream. If you like this blog or this post, please take a moment to share it with friends. Thank you for helping me follow my dream.

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
