Happy To Be Finding My Rhythm

Apparently I've been recharging a little too long.. it's been awhile since I've posted here. Honestly, I've been busy at Will Run For Ice Cream. I decided to take a big step and put my health first. You can read how it all started (How I'm Going To Overcome Sugar Addiction) or if you want to just jump to the end and see how it went, you can click here  (day 7) or here (the journey continues).

I'm still trying to find.. I would say balance... but someone (thanks Pastor G) told me that rhythm was a better word .... and I have to whole-heartedly agree. I'm trying to find my rhythm with family, exercise, goals and dreams.

I have truly loved being home with Lil Man, but I have also felt the increasing pressure to generate some income. And my dream for the longest time has been this blog and social media. I would love to be able to generate some income from what I love which is writing and sharing with others.

And I've been spending some time doing some
soul searching to decide what direction that I would really like for my blogs to go. I've never had a mission statement. Truthfully, they were harder to write than I thought they would be. This one being the hardest. (For those interested, you can read the mission statement for Will Run For Ice Cream here.)

But my mission statement for Today's Words of Glass is this:

I hope through my self-reflection, readers will see themselves so that they can pause and think, smile or laugh, or try something new.

So as I spend some time doing some self-evaluation on what I truly want for this blog, my life, and my family... I'm happy to say that I believe I am finding my rhythm... like music...it's ever changing. Sometimes we speed up. Sometimes we slow down. But life's a journey as we dance along to the beat.




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
