When you are in the thick of raising little human beings, it’s hard to stay balanced. So many posts I read from young parents talk about how stretched they are, how worn out, how hard it is. Yes, when you are doing it right, there will be times of exhaustion, but it shouldn’t be ALL the time.
Take a minute to think about your good friends. When you choose a friend, do you look for someone who:
•Does not recognize her own value as a person?•Does not believe in himself or his abilities?•Cannot restrain her strong emotions and actions?•Does not feel thankful for what he has?
NO? Then remember that these mindsets and abilities are formed from a very young age and have everything to do with how we choose to discipline our children.
This photo brings me peace and makes me happy. I am grateful every single day for being able to get outside, sharpen my senses, and feel connected to my family and the earth.
Before kids, my husband and I always made time to walk and talk, even if we had to get up early and go before work. Then, when our boys were born, we would pack up all the equipment and still get out there.
The Royal Wedding got me thinking about love and princesses and “happily ever after.” Meghan Markle is certainly a different kind of princess (or technically duchess), right? True confession: Before her engagement, I knew absolutely nothing about Meghan Markle. I still don’t, really. However, the adjectives I have read or heard spoken about her are what interest me.
