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

Little Buffalo State Park

I don't know about where you live, but where we live we are within driving distance to several State Parks. And because the weather has been so cool this Summer, and although it's August, last week was the first time we'd been to the pool. Lil Man had a blast. We had hoped some friends could join us today, but no one was available. But we ventured out, just the two of us, and we had a blast. The water was still pretty cold. In fact, we would get in - play for awhile - then get out and sit on a beach towel in the sun to warm up. This seemed to work well. We splurged and Lil Man enjoyed his first chocolate chipwich. He exclaimed "It's a cookie AND ice cream!" I do believe he thought it was a genius idea. Although it can be exhausting as my Lil Man is one that wants me to definitely join in with him with the sprinklers etc, it was pure joy to watch him enjoy himself. I think this picture speaks for itself. I hope you are enjoying your last few days

Ecosak Nylon Nut Bag Review

I have been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are mine and honest in nature. Well, can you believe that I am trying out a nut bag to make my own almond milk? (I'll pause a moment so that you can let the shock wear off!) I can honestly say that never in my life did I intend on making my own almond milk. But as you know, we are making some changes to our diet. So I decided I would give it a try.  And with the Ecosak I also received some recipes which really helped since I wasn't really sure what I was supposed to do. I asked Lil Man if he wanted to help me, and he was more than thrilled. Apparently making almond milk was an exciting and fun thing for him. First things first was to wash the Ecosak (easy to do) and soak the nuts. Yep, I put some raw almonds in a bowl, covered them with water and let them soak 6-8 hours or so. After they had been soaked, I
