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.

 

350 Followers and More to come!!!!!


350 followers

You know when starting this blog in October of 2011 her heart was not in writing. Of course, there were some obstacles to overcome before she could fully invest her time in writing other articles instead of just writing in her journal. A couple of years had gone by without working on the blog that she first created. It was not until recently in 2013 that she finally took the initiative to write because it makes her feel good. She loves to inspire others with her writing. She did not think that people would read the things that she wrote about and thought that they would not find it that interesting.

Therefore, starting her writing back up again she decided that she would just write for herself and let everything else fall into place. She started out with only 5 followers when she first started and now here in 2014, she is at 350 followers which is a huge experience for her because that means that she has 350 reader’s that she must keep in mind when she is writing. It has turned out to be a wonderful experience and one that she hopes will flourish into something bigger later on in the future. She is happy with the outcome of her newly found hobby and the excitement of having an audience such as this can be overwhelming at first but with time all things come together when they mean too.  

It is an indescribable feeling to log onto your blog and find that people around the world have viewed your materials. Although many do not leave a comment and that is fine it is nice that some people leave some type of comment. It is an inspiration to have this many readers who actually like the things that she writes about and she loves to hear what others have to say.  Sometimes when she writes she does not think that people will enjoy reading that type of article. However, she is surprised when she finally gets a few likes on the article. She knows that you have to publish something every day and sometimes that is hard to do because you do not know what to write about that would peak an interest into the reader. However, she tries to make at least one or two posts because that is the ritual that she needs to have in order to accomplish her goals as a writer.

She hopes that one day she will become an author of a book that she is working on. Although with everything going on in her life with homeschooling, work, writing, and other things she manages to make time for everything that she wants to accomplish in the upcoming years. She loves writing about personal experiences, inspiration, college, and anything else that intrigues her. She looks forward to reading other posts from the people who follow her and enjoys some of the tips, and advice that they have to offer.

Thank you all for following this blog it is gratifying to know that others enjoy the articles that she writes not only for herself but for others as well.

A Goal Achieved

I would like to say thank you to all you amazing people for following this blog. When I started this blog I never thought that I would have such an audience like this. It gives you this warm feeling inside to know that people actually enjoy the articles that you write about on your blog.

I appreciate all the comments, and likes for the posts that I have put on my blog. I hope that in the future of my blogging experience you enjoy the posts and information that I put on this blog.

You are a wonderful audience I should have never stopped writing articles two years ago. However, there were many things going on in life that you just cannot put to the side. Now, I am in that mode of writing for myself because I enjoy it. Now, I have the time to write about the things that interest me as well as other around me.

Real People Not Computers


You know it is interesting that people actually use robots for posting material that they probably take from other sites and use it as their own. I am curious to see how many real people there is that follow my blog? I write because I enjoy it and I am glad to see that I have over 200 follower’s that read the information that I post or reblog. However, I would like to know which of my follower’s are actually real people. I am spring cleaning my following blog because over half of the people that I follow do not visit my blog at all and that is fine. Everyone has their own tastes, and I did not start this blog to gain anything at all. I enjoy writing and like to voice my opinions about a variety of things. So I am curious to see who replies to this message but it will give me the information that I need to let go of the ones that do not….

Do not get me wrong I enjoy having everyone that follows me and I am inspired by reading their stories along with other’s that I may read. It is nice to know that people around the world have the same inspirations as I do. I will also continue to write no matter what happens. I enjoy it and love to write about things that inspire me and the world that I live in….

Thank you for following me!!!!!
