Persistence Is The Key


A2Z-BADGE-0002014-small_zps8300775c

The key to success in this world is to be persistent in the goals that you want to achieve. You cannot let anyone stand in your way for the things that you want out of your life. She knows that one day her persistence will pay off in the end. Her husband, and children have the utmost faith in her abilities to be a writer, manager, and a wonderful person. She thrives at doing her best in the job that she does.

The success of yourself is yours and what you make of it. You have to do your job and the job of other’s to make a business work. If you want to make it in the world you have to show that you are willing to do what it takes to get the job done.

If you do not succeed the first time try again, and again until you reach the goals that you desire. You cannot blame anyone for your life except for the one that is living it and that is you. You cannot expect other’s to help you if you are  not willing to put forth the effort into learning the right way to do your job.

The successful people are the ones that work more than 40 hours a week. They are always keeping tabs  on the job that their employees do for their company. They are always keeping track of the ones that do not do the job they were hired to do. Of course, you have to choose how you want your life to go and when you find that out the future is yours to take.

Be persistent in what you want you only have one life to live so live it well.

Parenting In The World Today


10154092_705584726160458_921790716_n

You know dealing with teenagers is a pain in the behind. They do not reason with you and they think that they know what it best for them. It is amazing that teenagers think that they know everything in the world when it comes to a variety of things. They think that parents are just giving them a hard time just for fun. However, parents are just trying to make them see that live is not easy, and they cannot always have what they want out of life.

People thinks that it is easy to work and that all they have to do is show up. They think that they do not have to do anything else. Teenager’s do not like to work and they do not think that they should have to do more than their share. Teenager’s just do not understand how the world works and they do not want to know. Sometimes you just have to let them see for themselves how the world can be and maybe then they will understand.

One of these days they will have their own children and they will be going through the same stuff that they put their parents through but only worse. It is crazy how when you get older; have children of your own that you find out that your parents were right about some of the things that you thought you knew about when you were a teenager. It is the little things in life that bring back those memories of your childhood and how you did not listen to your parents. You try to bring your children up the right way and hope that everything works out in the end. Once they reach that age of adulthood you hope that the things that you have taught them over the years will make them a honest, hardworking person.

However, you cannot see into the future and the only thing that you can do is be there for your children to help them through their trials, and tribulations throughout their life. Many parents do not care if their teenager’s are doing the right thing or not. In this day and time it is considered okay for a teenager to become pregnant, have sex before they are married, and many other things. Where did the morals go? What is different about the world today compared to years ago when boys, and girls courted each other before they had intimate relationships?

Parents do not seem to mind that their teenager’s are going out to parties having a good time; getting pregnant, doing drugs, drinking, and anything else that they want. Parents do not seem to mind that their 13 year old is going to have a baby when they are just a baby themselves. She knows that when she had her first child she did not know anything about being a mother to another life. It was something that she had to learn through trials. However, she could not be a better mother now and she cherishes the fact that her children are who they are right now. She keeps her children close, and tries to keep them out of harms way. Because you cannot trust anyone in this world today. You never know who will hurt you and you do not know when people will snap.

She knows that she cannot keep them safe forever but she does know that right now she can limit the people that they are around. At least her children have enjoyed their childhood without the worry of games, cell phones, internet, and other things. She is old fashioned in the way that she thinks and some people seem to think that her children will not appreciate the things that they have done for them. You know her children say “I Love You” a million times a day. They see what happens in the world today from the news, and the radio. Children missing, abducted, raped, murdered, and whatever else happens to them. My heart hurts every time I have to hear about little children, adults, and many other innocent people that have to go through anything like this.

It is sad and scary to think that our children have to grow up in a world like this. It is sickening to see that the world is heading into a place that no one wants to live in. Every time you turn on the television something bad has happened somewhere in the world. All it takes is saying something wrong to someone and they will snap into someone that you do not know. How safe is our children in this world? Why do parents not keep a closer eye on what their children are doing? What happens when your child or teenager gets into trouble do you bail them out or let them learn a lesson? When she was a teenager she did not think about having sex, doing drugs or hanging out with the cool people. That is all these children think about now is making sure that they are part of the crowd doing what the cool kids do. It is quite amazing that people allow themselves to follow the crowd instead of being themselves.

You do not have to act like something that you are not because if people like you for who you are then you will not have any problems. She tries to be herself in every situation because if people do not know the real you how are they going to know if they like you. Now, in the age of technology parents have many things that they can put their children in front of to keep them out of their hair.  A built in babysitter that is going to corrupt their minds from playing games, sitting in front of the television, playing on their cell phones, I pads, and handheld devices. What happened to making children go outside and use their imagination?

Oh wait! It is easier to buy them expensive items to keep them occupied and out of your hair than to make them use their minds to have fun. Children are learning way to much at such an early age that they think that it is the way that it is done. Parents do way to much in front of their children and what happens when these children see these things. When you do drugs in front of your children they think that it is okay to do these things. Then you have your children selling drugs to other little children because they saw their parents doing it. When children see their parents having sex in front of them they think that it is okay and so they are going to do the same thing. Because that is what they have seen when you get a little child that can tell you everything about sex there is something wrong with that picture.

She tries to understand why parents do some of the things that they do and she just cannot understand what people do. Allowing your child to get their nails done like an adult, dressing them up to look like they are older than what they are, letting them go out on dates before they even become a teenager, allowing them to have a Facebook page at ten or eleven years old, giving them cell phones at ten years old, I pads at the age of eight or younger, buying the most expensive games because that is what your child wants, and anything that they want. The future children of the world spend their time playing way to many games and even adults get carried away with playing games. She has seen many adults live their life for playing games, which that is their right if that is what they want to do with their life.

This is not teaching our children anything about the real world. When they grow up and get out on their own they are not going to know what to do because their parents bought them anything and everything that they wanted. So what is the parents going to go to their house all the time to take care of them? Clean their house, cook for them, do their laundry, and whatever else they want. When does it end? When do they finally learn that they cannot have everything that they want out of life unless they work for it. When do they step up and do these things for themselves? It is essential that they learn how to cook, clean, work, and do things for themselves.

To each his own in this world. This is some of the reasons why children are going around doing the stupid things that they do. When you are stuck in a house playing nothing but violent games, and watching violence on television it sends the wrong message to our younger crowd. They seem to think that it is okay to do these things because the people in the videos, and on television make it as real as they possibly can. It would be interesting to see what type of effects playing violent games or watching violence everyday has on the mind, and brain. It has to send some type of hidden message within the things that they are seeing to make them think that it is okay to shoot up schools, rape, murder or whatever to other people.

When you have games that allow gamers to rape, murder, and who knows what else in the virtual world they will apply those to the real world. How are they going to know what is real and what is not if they are allowed to play these games for long periods of time. A couple of weeks ago she was watching Criminal Minds and there was a man and a woman going around raping, and killing women because it was all part of a game that they were playing for long periods of time. Parents have to know that this is damaging their child’s mind.

Okay now, that I have said my peace about certain things I know that there will be more later on throughout this writing process. It is a scary world that we live in now and the ones that are going to suffer the most is our children, their children, and so on.

Opening Your Heart


A2Z-BADGE-0002014-small_zps8300775c

Sometimes it is hard to open your heart to other people for the fear of being hurt all over again. You shield yourself from the pain of being hurt because of the past issues that you have had over the years. You take precautions because you do not trust people with your feelings, and your heart.

Time is a healing process and you have to open your heart to other’s in order to find love, peace, and happiness in the world. Sometimes you cannot keep your heart hidden from the ones that you love because it causes them pain as well.

Life is a roller coaster and you cannot just let it roll by without any hope of having a lovely life. You have to keep your faith that you life is going to be full of wonderful things. Lovely children, a good husband, and a life filled with the utmost happiness.

She tries to inspire people with the articles that she writes and the words just flow from her mind. She has everything that she could possibly want in this life and she is grateful that she can spend it with the ones that she opens her heart to each and everyday.

Firefighters battle massive Gatlinburg condo fire


This is so sad! I am glad that they have rescued some of them. This is about 25 minutes from my hometown. I am sending prayers to the families and hope that they are okay. I have driven on this road and worked at one of the hotels a long time ago before it closed down. My thoughts and prayers are with anyone that is stuck in these condo’s and pray that they get everyone out safely.
