Category Archives: Reflection

Things I feel strongly about. I am not a licensed professional in advice giving, but these are my own reflections on general topics, so I don’t have to be. I am not liable for any advice you take of mine, but I’m pretty sure it will do you more good than cause any harm. So do try this at home, but remember, there is only one person accountable for your actions. If you are still wondering who this person is, please check out the nearest mirror and you will always find that person (if you don’t, there is a possibility you are a ghost or vampire…j/k).

Happy Birthday Josiah!

Today Josiah turned seven years old! I have a second grader now…where did the time go? It doesn’t feel like it was already seven years ago when I was blessed with one of my best friends, Josiah Cristian. I rememeber not being able to sleep for the first few months because I would wake up and want to stare at him all night.  His existence changed so many parts of my life, he made me want to be the best mom I could be, and I wanted to show God how much I appreciated his wonderful gift.  I want Josiah to use his good heart to be the very best version of himself.  I hope he gets all the best parts of his dad and me. I hope he doesn’t make a lot of the same mistakes his dad and I made, but I’ll be there to give him good advice, listen to him, never judge him, and love him unconditionally. Happy birthday baby boy.  You may not be a baby still, but you will always be my first baby. I love you Josiah.First Baby

Focus on Yourself

Your Light

“Blowing out somebody else’s candle doesn’t make yours shine any brighter.” I don’t remember who said this, but I heard it from my sixth grade Quest teacher (a half hour life class for students to talk about feelings, I didn’t share much, but paid close attention). I’ve never been the kind of person to judge or make fun of someone, when I know I am not perfect.  I’m not surprised, but always amazed at the people who think they will look better, more interesting, or draw attention by talking down about other people.  I can never understand those that would spend so much energy putting others down. Some say people do it because jealousy, insecurity, peer pressure, bored, immature, or other reasons. Why do you think they do it? If you do it, why? Next time you hear someone talking mean about someone, don’t join in or laugh and encourage it. If you are the person doing it, stop, close your mouth, and focus on yourself;)
