Dear Mama ,

So you’ve begun looking…googling…pinterest-spying…

You’ve bought all the gadgets, gizmos and do-hickeys…

You’ve done the three-day, two-day and the just let-er-rip theory…

Yet your child still isn’t sitting pretty on the potty…

What’s a mom to do…

Resolution Solutions: A Resolutionary Way of Thinking

“Resolutionary!“-Daddy Brucks

 

Ok folks, many people either love resolutions or loathe them. I am not one to pick sides, but I personally am in the camp of loving them, (please don’t hate me), but it wasn’t always this way!

I had times of desire to change aspects of my life, I would try and try again, but to no avail. At some point I would give up, forget about it for some time and then be reminded the following year of all that I had failed at.

After years of growth with God, He finally showed me (or I finally accepted)  a “resolutionary” way of thinking!  I was going about it all wrong and the moment I grasped this new concept, it made all the difference in the world…and I’m not talking about being positive or having the right support in your lives (although helpful)…I’m talking about something that appears to be the opposite of wanting change…

Are you ready for this profound, life altering  concept….you might not be so happy once you see it…be prepared…

Happy Birthday to Me

              Its dark in here, only my thoughts and my imagination surround me. I think and wonder, smile and cry, but no one can see me. They sense I am with them and know that I will one day join their world. I know when that day will come and today is that day. I sit and wait for the itch, the urge, the push I need to look out and see the world I have read and observed over the last few years of my hidden life. Today I am born into the world of writing and although the first few moments will be filled with fear and anxiety, it will soon be my new normal.  Here I go..off to meet the rest of you.
