Little Things


She started reading a book that a friend let her  borrow “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff” it is a very interesting book to say the least. It is quite amazing how we let the small things in life bring us down from where we are in our life. Everyone is so caught up in worrying about how other’s look at them. We tend to forget about how our actions affect other’s around us. It does not matter what other people think about you because you are the only one that you have to answer to in your life. The things that you do in your life reflect how you will be later on in life.

Life is what you make it and not worrying about the small things in life is something that you have to step back and think about how you would react to those things that bother you so much. You know when you are on a roll with something and someone steps in to help you with what you are doing you have to step back and re-evaluate what you were doing and focus on the steps that you should have taken before they stepped in to help.

The littlest things can trigger something inside and cause you to react in a different way than you should have reacted. Stepping back for just a second can change the way that you look at the situation and change your reaction. When she started writing years ago her children would always interrupt her to ask silly questions about a variety of things and she would react like it was an interruption of her quite time to write. When children are little they do not understand the concepts of quite time or that mommy is trying to work on something.

Finding the center of your aggravation and irritations can help in finding the right place to be so that the little things in life do not bother you as much. Sometimes we do not think about the things that we say or do because when you are just that type of person that is honest about everything that you do in life you tend to say things that you later probably should not have said in the first place. Many people have a hard time hearing the truth about anything that they do in life. Mostly, because they believe that they cannot take criticism from other’s. Many people think that they are helping and do not see the harm in what they are doing. However, by not allowing them to do  these things by themselves makes them think that they can never do it on their own.

Sometimes people do not think about the feelings of other’s and it is hard to think about how other’s are feeling because that is not how the world works. Sometimes people think that other’s do things just to make other’s feel small and not worth anything. Which in turn makes people feel like they are doing well at their job, at home, or anything in between. Sometimes people feel that they cannot do anything right and that they are not worth having around because other’s cannot get past the pet peeves that they have developed over time.

She is very honest with her children and tells them how it is in the real world. People are not going to take their feelings into consideration when you have a job to do. The world is a cruel and unusual place to be because no one cares about the feelings of other’s and they will not take your feelings into consideration. You have to be careful in the things that you say to people because it may come back to bite you later on in your life. You have to be careful in this world because people are so sensitive to anything you say to them. They have no backbone and cannot take criticism of any kind. They do not want to hear the things that they are doing wrong. They just want to hear about the things that they are doing right.

 

Life in the Fast Lane


20160407_115638

Hello reader’s, she knows that it has been quite some time since posting anything on this blog. It is funny how life gets in the way of the things that you love to do. However, life is something that you have to take with a grain of salt. Throughout, our life things happen to where you cannot get things that you would like to do done. When you finally get to that point in your life where you have the things that you want out of life you can only try and reach for better things that will make your life better. It is hard to sit down and make time for writing when you have a busy schedule. Although, it is mostly procrastination that keeps you from doing the things that you should be doing to keep your audience interested in what you are writing about and keeping them coming back to read something else that you have written.

To be the writer you have to actually set time aside from your life to write about things that interest you and your reader’s. That is the main thing right there setting aside time from work, homeschooling, and life to write about what is on your mind. A few years ago she did not have any problems sitting down at her desk and writing about what was on her mind. However, the more recent years have become more wrapped up in work, and homeschooling her children to get them ready for the outside world. Keeping in mind that her main reason for writing was to give advice of things that have worked for her that could possibly help other’s in the world.

She has always loved to write and spent long hours working on a book that she has not even looked at since things in her life turned around for the better. She needs to realize that she can never publish a book without putting in the effort to getting it finsished and edited. Putting aside all the times that she laid around the house on her day’s off from work to enjoy the day. She could spend that time to write about things that maybe could help other’s in the world. You know when you work six days straight and homeschool in the afternoon grading papers, and making sure that they have done the required work that they were supposed to do you find that most of your time is spent doing the things that you have to do.  Sometimes that does not leave time for anything else like the things that you would love to be doing.

She spends most of her time working and spending quality time with her family. Taking on of her day’s off to just be lazy and not think about the things that she needs to be doing. It is making up excuses why she is not writing the things that she should because she just does not want to take the time to sit down at her desk and spend the time writing. So now, she needs to make the decision on whether or not she wants to keep the work going and spend the time each day to make sure that she sits down and writes. All it takes is actually sitting down at the computer and spending a little time writing about what has happened in her life to get her where she is today.

It is time to make that change in her life to keep her interested in the things that she loves to do and spend that little extra time in compiling some articles to publish throughout the week. She is excited about keeping her reader’s interested in continuing to come to her blog to read what she writes about and she will set time out of her day to accomplish what she started so many years ago.

What are your Dreams?


Sometimes in your career you are asked to write down your dreams of what you want out of your life. It could be anything and be anything that you would want to happen in your life. It is a good question to ponder on when you get the chance to see what you would want out of your life. What would one of your dreams be to accomplish in this world. Well you know sitting here thinking about that question you find some answers that you probably would not have thought about before because honestly most people are working paycheck to paycheck with no balance in their life.

You know while she was sitting here writing about her dreams it dawned on her that most of her dreams have come true maybe a little later than she had hoped but they did come true. One of her dreams was to finish college and that happened in 2012 with a master’s degree. Another dream was to have her own home that she could call her own without having people tell her what she could or could not do. Some place where her and her family could settle down and make a life of their own. Well that happened in 2013 which was a blessing in itself.

With all the good things happening to her recently she did not know whether or not to believe that good things could happen because they have always struggled to make ends meet no matter what they situation. However, that was also about to change with all the other good things that have happened in the last year she was not looking for anything else. The job that she has wanted was just around the corner all she had to do was be persisent and go for what she wanted. Becoming a manager was the best thing that could have happened because now she does not have to struggle to make ends meet.

Now, a year later and she still loves her job to no end although there are struggles as with anything in the world of business. However, you have to overcome those struggles and pick the things that you want to go your way. You cannot win every fight but you can win some of the fights. It is a struggle to find that happy medium within the workplace. However, when you find that happy medium you should not do anything to desturb the changes that are going on.

Eventually, she wants to get to that point on where she wants to be within the next few years. She know that she wants to move up within the company and she knows that it will be a challenge to get where she wants to be within the company but she is determined to learn and eventually acheive the desired outcome that she seeks within this company. She knows that if she does the right things and shows how much she cares about the company things will work out in her favor. It is worth the wait so that she can learn all she needs to know before taking that next step into the upper business world.

The World of Gardening 2016


Gardening is an art that you must have a passion for in order to reap the benefits of the things that you grow. This year we decided to have a bigger garden than previous years. Although, only one of the vegetables that we have planted did not do anything this year was our zucchini. What a shame because we were excited to have some zucchini to eat. Some of the things that we have planted this year were bush beans, squash, okra, eggplant, cilantro, dill, parsley, sage, tarragon, cherry tomatoes, tomatoes, onions, garlic, potatoes, cucumbers, watermelon, oregano, and rosemary. All these things have produced this year and we have a freezer full of vegetables, and herbs. Although some of the vegetables are still producing our squash is not because of the heat here in florida. Next, year we are going to use shade cloth to keep the sun from destroying our plants.

This has turned out to be a wonderful investment normally, potatoes take 110 days to mature but our red potatoes did not take as long. We ended up with a bunch of potatoes that we could not use all at the same time. We ended up giving some away to people that I work with because we had so many of them. We are still eating on them as we speak last night we made a pot roast and put some of the garlic in the roast and potatoes and onions around it. Quite amazing dinner with the fresh vegetables, and herbs.

Squash we have had lots of squash this year compared to last year and we have had it in a variety of ways. We tried a squash casserole but it did not turn out that well. We have fried it and put most of it in the freezer for later use. Although the hot weather here has made it die off faster than it should. However, we are planning on planting some more in the back away from the sun so that they have a chance to produce more squash for us to eat.

Bush beans produce quite a bit of beans or the short amount of time that they are in the ground. We have personally, put some in the freezer and cooked about three pots full of beans and we are planting more in a couple of days so that we get some more throughout the rest of the summer months. Here in florida you can have multiple gardens throughout the year and stock up on some of the most favorite foods that your family loves to eat.

Pepper’s we have a variety of pepper’s like we did last year and they are producing quite a few. Although we are using a dehydrator for some of the pepper’s and herbs that we have grown in our garden this year. We also can dehydrate some of the other vegetables however, they are not around long enough for us to steam them and get them ready for dehydrating.

A-z challenge meltdown


Unfortunately, I am not going to be able to finish this challenge as I am on the way to Tennessee.  With all the things that I have on my plate I thought that I would have the time to spend a little time and effort on this challenge. Although, I realize that it is not going to work out that way. I still plan to post some things just not everyday.
