Everybody does their best with what they have. Some seem to have it all together and figured out, and if they do more power to them. What really matters is that we all find what works for us. Everybody knows what works for one doesn’t mean it will work for another. You have to try different methods before noticing the one that works best for you! This could mean with anything but right now I am referring to parenting styles. It’s not easy. Children don’t come with manuals. There’s no “on” or “off” switch. You can’t tape their mouths shut when they’re talking too much. You can’t miraculously give them something to make them sleep when you want them to. They just have to do things on their own, at their own pace and timetable. You could even have more than one kid, they are not going to be alike. Some more obedient others more disobedient. Some more talkative others more kept to themselves. Some who will play by the rules while others will be the ones in timeout for breaking those set rules. Don’t ever let anyone judge you! Telling you your not good enough or capable of. You are capable. Your a mother or father and you know what’s right for your child, not your parents or in laws, or brothers or sisters, not your neighbours or colleagues, not even any stranger you catch giving you mean glares! In a perfect world they would always be in bed in time and wake up earlier for school. Their toys and clothes would be picked up and they would have the outfit for the next day already prepared. In a perfect world they would use all their utensils properly without dropping a single pea or grain of rice on the floor. They would eat with their mouths closed and pay attention to your every word! Sometimes things don’t work out as we had hoped but there’s always a next time to give it another shot. Or a lesson to learn about what’s not working. Trial and error is a perfect way to find your way of doing things! Only you know what works for you and why it does! Keep at it, you’ll always find a way! ❤️️

Good Morning… The first thing to remember is that you received another day! Be grateful! Another day to fulfill your destiny! Another day to shine bright! Another day for a fresh start to make things right! Don’t focus on what you don’t have but rather on what you do! You really have a lot to be grateful! ❤️️
If your with someone and your heart isn’t in it, please let them go! You can’t continue to keep someone who you have no attachment to! Love is a choice we make every day allowing us to love someone despite all their flaws and life’s circumstances! It’s not easy staying together in a world that wants to torn people apart! Now if your heart is in it, fight for your love! Be the person you want in your life! It’s easy to point fingers and accuse the other person of not doing their part, but what have we done? Have we done our part? Do we go far and beyond? Is our love nurtured and cared for physically and emotionally? The little things are really the big things! If you take care of those little things, the rest will follow!
Pain is inevitable! It’s one of life’s guarantees! Nobody goes through life without getting hurt! If we did what would we learn from it and grow? To get through where we want to go, we have to pass by a few bumps and curves in the road! It’s part of a process! It’s part of our healing! Out with the bad and in with the good! Love Love Love like that is all you know! Love like it’s the air you breathe! Don’t play with someone’s heart if you don’t want someone to play with yours! Don’t be a stranger to the person that’s always had your back when the rest of those were waiting for your collapse! ❤️️
Being Called Mom Is My Greatest Blessing <3
That’s when you know you did something good/right in your life! Very Blessed! Very grateful to God, despite my mistakes he let me be a mother! Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful moms out there, in this world and the other! You’re never forgotten!
Too many times we let our emotions get the best of us! When we are hurt or someone betrays us, we spend our precious time angry, resentful, envious or even thinking of ways to get back at who wronged us. The truth is, all that negative energy won’t have any impact on the person but deeply on us.
We are wasting part of our time with negative thoughts and emotions when truly we could benefit more of that time with something more profound for our well being.
There are things out of our control but we can choose how to react to those things that come when we least expect it!
Start your day right by choosing what it is you really want done for your day! Choose your minutes wisely, because Time waits for no one! Does it really matter if someone cut you off in traffic? It hurts when someone we trusted betrays us, but isn’t better to know now then be friends with someone that in the end doesn’t deserve your trust and will deceive you anyways? That proposal that you delivered got turned down, you worked hard on it but still it didn’t make the cut, it happens! It wasn’t the right time! Many famous actors and authors got turned down plenty of times before someone gave them a chance! It just makes you want to work harder for what you really want!
Don’t dwell on what could have been when you still have a chance to make it happen the next time around! ❤️️
Don’t judge one another. You don’t know their story. You don’t know what they went through to get to here! Nor what they lost along the way or what they had to live without! Behind their smile is a sadness without limits. The kind that you live a whole life without being given the right recognition and value or being understood and accepted for who we are! The same way you are judging someone will be judging you! The only one who can truly judge is our highest force!
When things go our way, it’s incredible! It’s so easy to be happy and grateful for all the good things. The trick is being grateful for the things that go wrong in our lives. Sometimes just a change of attitude and thoughts can go a long way. For every negative that occurs there’s always a positive. Sometimes we are so focused on what happened or what didn’t happen that we lose sight of what could happen, our benefit of what seems to be a setback! Look for the opportunity to do something better. To perfect your weaknesses and also your strengths, while you find a better way!
Life has a way of pushing us to our limits… Sometimes we could be working so hard that we lose sight of what’s important, and life pushes that we suffer an accident. With that we see what really was important, our family for one, that we neglected throughout the years because it was all about the money and a career.
We all have our preferences and know what it’s all about but if you don’t have a balance something is bound to happen to shake you up and make you think!
Your resilience and strength, ability to bounce back is what will you push you further and closer to your destination… It’s really all about your attitude and if it’s a positive one your half way there!
Courage my friend! Your closer than you think! Believe that things will change and your capacity to grow with it all!
