Determination to Succeed


A2Z-BADGE [2016]

The determination to succeed in life is something that many people in this world do not have. Most people only want to work what they want, and when they want. They are too busy having a life and not worried about what the future holds down the road. Throughout, the world some people want to succeed in everything that they do. They want to excel in their job, gardening, raising their children, and anything else that they do in life.

Sometimes, the road to success is hard to cope with however, people manage to make it through the hardest parts of their life. This only makes them stronger with every step that they take towards their success in their life. In order, to get where they want to be they have to make sacraficies that many people do not want to make because it will interfere with their plans or their life with their friends.

You have to plan for the future and you cannot do that without determination. You have to want to make something better for yourself, and your family so later on in your life you do not have to worry about anything but enjoying the rest of your life. The best part of your life is making sure that you stay determined to make your life the way that you want without the pressure of anyone else telling you cannot do anything. You will never be anything, and that you will always be a failure.

You cannot listen to these types of things because you will always look at those words that were said to you. When you are always being put down by anyone in your world you will never gain the confidance to make something of yourself. So for you to stay strong you have to keep telling yourself that you can do anything that you put your mind to and not worry about what other people say to you or about you.

When you listen to other people or you listen to the people that are always putting you down you will never achieve anything in your life until you stop the negativity around you and change the outcome that you want for your life. Throughout her life she has always been the time of person to just hang out with family . The few friends that she did have throughout her childhood became distant friends because as they grew older they did not have much in common anymore.

Becoming your own person, and sticking to the things that you want out of your life leaves you with the feeling of accomplishment because you have worked for everything that you want out of your life. No where in this world does it say that you must have friends, you must go out and party with these so-called friends that are nice to your face, and talk about you behind your back. No one needs that in their life. You have responsiblities to take care of your children, and family. Keep your job in check and make sure you are saving for the future.

Determination to make something of yourself and become self-sufficient in this world should be taught to everyone in school. By the time they have graduated they do not know much about the real world, and how cruel people can be within the world. People can be unkind, and treat people badly. They will critize everything that you do, and everything that you say. It does not matter if you are right and they are wrong. Becoming an adult is something that many people dread because you never catch a break from anything in the world.

She is determined to become a success no matter what. She has made it a priority in her life to make the best of what she has and work to wards making it better for everyone that is involved in her life.

Our Children are Precious


In the last couple of weeks she has heard about parents leaving their children in the car with the high temperatures. How can you not know that your children are in the car? How can you turn a blind eye to not making sure that your children are safe at the proper places? She cannot understand how parents can leave their children in the car while they go grocery shopping, go into a bar, and go to work or anything else to that nature before making sure that your children are safe from harm.

People like this should not have children because they are not ready for them and are only thinking about themselves. It saddens her to hear about some foolish parent that decided to leave their child in a car, leave them in the trash or something else to that effect. Come on when the world has children having children something needs to be done. Parents start being parents know what your child is doing, where they are and who they are with. Do not allow them to have sex until they are married. What happened to the world? It is like parents are excited that their little girl is pregnant at such a young age. It is the normal of the world and no one says anything.

She has seen 13 year old girls having children when they should be worried about school and the fault of this lies on the parents for letting their little girl have sex, and hang out with boys. She has a teenage girl and she is so glad that she homeschools because she would be learning more than what she needed to know going to public school. She also has two teenage boys and they are not interested in girls at the present time. Thank goodness they will enjoy their life without the stresses of the teenage life. Some people say that they resent her because they do not have friends. You know what they tell her they love her every day and that they are thankful for being homeschooled. When they get older and out of the house that is when they can have friends maybe by that time they will be able to pick out the good people instead of following the crowd. Teenager’s do not need to worry about boys, kissing, sex, or anything else but getting an education and making something of themselves in this world.

Back in the old days boys courted the girls, asked dad for permission to take his daughter out, asked permission to marry her, and many other things. Sexual intercourse was reserved for the wedding night not the second date. Back then they did not show affection out in public because it was meant to stay private. Now, they post all about it on Facebook, and other social media’s. She can remember working at Burger King and some ladies were coming through the drive thru talking about their night and the employee’s inside were listening to ever detail. People do not think about the things that they say in public, and they surely do not care what they do in public. No one wants to see you making out in public that is what they make rooms for instead of flaunting it out in public.

There is nothing wrong with being old-fashioned in your way of thinking and you certainly do not have adhered to the current way of doing things in this world. Parents need to raise their children with morals, modesty, and to think about what they are doing before something bad happens. You cannot get on Facebook anymore without people posting pictures of them in bikinis, bra and panties, posing in provocative poses, and other things like that. It is insane to exploit yourself like this because of the perverted people that are in the world today. Just think about who is using your pictures and do you want to think about how they are using your pictures? Come on this is a sick world we live in and no one seems to care about the outcome.

Family Interference While Writing

Children

Writing at home can pose problems especially when you have children. Writing requires quiet time with reflective thought. In the midst, of writing at home she tries to find a spot where there are not any distractions with her writing. You have to divide up your time for everything that you have or want to do require some type of scheduling so no one feels left out and not wanted. Children although you love them you may find your writing may involve some of the things that they have talked to you about when you are writing. Questions they may ask throughout the process of interrupting you while you write. During the course of college classes it was a task to keep your mind on the essay, discussion question or research. However, you have to keep going and block out those many distractions that you may have around you when you write. You want to make sure that your family is welcome in your inner sanctum so that they know that you enjoy their company and thoughts. Some of the best memories are made with each other throughout the process and this is a good way to take note of those wonderful memories.

Distractions

Throughout your home there will always be some distraction from writing like something coming on the television that you want to see and it will distract you from the task at hand. Writing is an art and certain things may intensify what you are writing about and then again it may disturb your writing process.  The radio can pose as a distraction especially if a song that you love comes on you will find yourself singing to the song and loose site of what you were writing about with every phrase of the song. Sometimes it helps you in writing more because of the intensity of the song may have you reflect on something that happened in your past. Cellphones may also cause you distractions when you write because you may have friends that text you about everything going on in their life. They could pose more distractions than you would like because of the need to know what is going on in their life.

The Art of Writing

Writing is an art and some are blessed with this art that allows words to just roll out of their mind and onto whatever they are writing on at that moment. It is quite amazing at the amount of words that you can write within a certain time period if you put your mind into the work that you are doing. Especially if you are writing about something that you love to write about and something that you know. The slightest thing can spark some inspiration into what you want to write about and then the words just flow from your mind. Writing about your family experiences, dinners that you have, desserts, and many other things can inspire the most wonderful piece of writing. It will also add some significance to what you are writing in your journal, blog, and anything else you are writing with throughout the writing experience.

Here’s to the writing experience may it be a wonderful one!

Another Great Year of Homeschooling


Just a bit of information to my reader’s! My children have passed mom’s exams and will head to the 10th grade next school year! They are excited and ready for the upcoming school year. It has turned out to be a long road but they did well.

Next, year they will be doing algebra II, Biology, Computer programming, American Literature, and History of the American Nation. Of course, they are all excited about all of the classes that they will take in the upcoming year.

A very proud moment to see that I have done my job as a mother, and teacher to my children. I am very glad that I chose to homeschool four years ago. It has turned out to be the best experience of my life.

Looking forward to the upcoming year as we learn more about a variety of things. I believe that the hardest part for them this year was English Literature however, they passed with no problems. I also learned quite a bit from teaching them in English Literature.

Algebra of course, they were surprised when I could solve the problem in my head without working it out on paper. They are getting to where they can do some problems like that but I told them that it takes time to be able to look at a problem and solve it without working it out.

When Your Mind Wanders


she sit here staring into the computer screen wondering what to type….she hears the children in the other room talking about a variety of things that she cannot hear completely what they are saying. she hears things hit the ground and hears them laughing and throwing things around what in the world is going on in there she wonders.

As she sits writing about a variety of things, she enjoys listening to the children have their fun in the other room. The sounds of them having fun is music to her ears because they enjoy every minute of the day. There is nothing more than to listen to your children having fun without the addiction of games, television or anything else that children have these days.

The feeling of not being able to write anything is driving her insane! Although she has written quite a bit in the last month at least one article a day it still is not enough. She only has a certain amount of time during the day to spend on writing. She writes more about her life in her journal than anything right now.

She needs to sit down and write articles for her blog, work on the finals for the children, and many other things that needs to be done. The more she writes about her life the more she sees that she has tons of information about her life in her journal. She is close to the 50,000 mark in her journal. You would not think that you could write that much about your life but it is possible to write more.

Mother’s Day


Picture1

I am posting this early because I have to work on Mother’s Day along with many other mothers around the world.

Being a mother involves many things like being there for your children no matter what the obstacles. Mother’s always make sure that they have food, clothes, and numerous other things. Mother’s encourage them to do their best at anything that they do in their life. Mother’s praise them for doing the right thing. Mother’s make sure that there children know that you love them with all your heart.

You have to make sure that your children know that you are not there to be their friend but you are there to make sure that they grow up to be the best person that they can be. It is not going to be easy especially when your babies start growing up and becoming their own person. The time to be their friend is when they are grown and starting their own life with the person that they have found to spend their life with and start their own family.

Being a parent is not easy and there are obstacles that you have to overcome to make sure that your children are safe, secure, and happy within their life. Things in life happen for a reason and no matter what they are you can always count on your mother to be there when things go in the wrong direction. Every mother needs to give their children advice about many things like drugs, sex, boys, girls (in this day and time), and many other things. You have to make sure that they know how to defend themselves, stick up for themselves, and to protect themselves if something should happen.

The best Mother’s Day presents are the ones that you cannot buy in any store in the world. Mother’s around the world enjoy the gifts that your children make for you from anything and everything that they can find around the house. It is truly amazing what your children can make for you and the best part is it comes from the heart. They took the time to make you something to celebrate the special day.

I hope that every mother around the world enjoys Mother’s Day with the ones that they love. Cherish your children and be thankful that you have them around to celebrate this wonderful day. Our children are what keeps us going everyday of every year.

To all the mother’s that have lost their children I am sorry that you have to go through a Mother’s Day without your loved one.

A Note To My Reader’s


In the month of May I will not be writing as much! I have to get final exam’s ready for the children. Homeschooling is not an easy task and they come first. I will try to post a few things here and there throughout this month. However, making sure that the children pass their final exams is the most important thing to me right now.

I know that everyone will understand! I am working on some articles right now but they are not finished and not ready to publish.

So here is hoping that the children pass their final exams and move onto the 10th grade!!!!!

An Observation of The World of Parenting In “2014”


Sometimes she wonders what people think about when they up and leave their children without any regards at how it will effect them. It is because they do not care about anyone except for what they want in life. Young people do not have any morals about anything in this world. They only care about what they want and no one else matters. Sometimes it may be a good thing that parents up and leave their children because at least then they would have a fighting chance to make something of themselves. In this day and time the younger generation just  does not care about anything except themselves.

Where have the parents gone? Parents are not parents these days because they do not pay attention to what their children need to know about in the world. It is okay for a little girl or little boys to go out, have sex, and get pregnant. You know it takes two to tango and make babies. Therefore, it is going to take two to raise the babies, and keep them out of harms way. A relationship is 50/50 and it takes both of you to make the relationship work. You cannot take each other for granted and you have to work together to make your relationship work.

Because they know that mom and dad will be there to step in and take care of the child because she has to go to school, work, and do what they want to do. Everyday parents are raising their grandchildren, and great grandchildren because the parents do not want them. They get hooked on drugs, and they do not want to give up their life of partying, and being selfish. If they did not want to have children they should have not put themselves in that situation. They should not put their selfish wants above their children. The human race is strange and the ones that will suffer this will be our generation of children.

Sometimes it is not the parents fault for how their grown children act and do the things that they do. It is because of the people that they hang around and if you are going to hang around people that do drugs, drink all the time, party all the time, and leave their children to fend for themselves then they are better off with the grandparents. Some of the people that have children today should not have children because they are not ready to take on the responsibility of another living being.

People think that they are owed food stamps, welfare, and everything else that they get for free. Although they are getting it for free because it is the taxpayer’s that are having to pay for these people to spend their actual money on things that they do not need. I admit that there are some people that need the help and they should receive the help. However, they should make the effort into making their life better so that they do not need the help from the government. They cannot support the ones that they have but then they go out and get pregnant all over again.

Back in the old days the man of the house went out and worked to bring in the money, and the woman stayed home to take care of the house, and children. However, in the world today it takes two to make ends meet and sometimes you cannot make ends meet with both parties working. You have to work different shifts because some parents do not want to leave their children in the care of people that they do not know. However, you do what you have to do for your children, and family.

She knows that there are some good parents out in the world that teach their children the right and wrong way to be. She admires the ones that actually take the time to spend those precious moments with their children because they do not come all the time. Every time she turns on the television, radio, internet and reads about children that have been tossed out like a piece of garbage, left in cars, being abducted or anything like that it is depressing because these children cannot defend themselves. They are not old enough to know what is going on and why they are being discarded like trash or left behind for someone else to take care of them.

Sometimes they miss having little children running around the house. They are precious little beings. To watch their personalities come alive each year that they grow makes you think about those moments when they are older. Children are precious and we need to make sure that we love, nurture, and raise them to be leaders not follower’s.

Time Is Short


A2Z-BADGE-0002014-small_zps8300775c

You never know when your life can be cut short. Things happen out of no where and there is not much anyone can do about it. Life can be cut short for a number of reasons and taking the wrong road may cut your life even shorter. She tries to teach her children that the road that they take can lead their life in the right or wrong direction depending on which road they take. Her children are almost at that age where they will be on their own and have their own lives to live.

She does not want her children to have to struggle the way that they have for the past few years. It has been a long battle and it is still going to be a long road ahead. They have had some good times, and some bad times but they always managed to keep smiles on their faces throughout it all. They find the best way to keep the struggles to themselves so that people do not know the trials, and obstacles that they face throughout their life.

They know that a brighter time will come and they look forward to that all the time because they know that time is short. You cannot wait until it is too late to say the things that you want to say to each other because if you wait it will be too late. They have done without many things because there were more important things on their plate to take care of and that is usually how it always was.

When you drive at night you have a chance of getting struck by a drunk driver. All because they cannot limit themselves when they drink. Someone else could be doped up on pills and not paying attention to what they are doing. They could be texting while driving. There are just so many things that could go wrong when you are out on the roads because you have to pay attention to the other driver’s around you because you do not know what they are going to do.

When you go out to a bar you do not know any of the people in that bar. Something could go wrong just like that. You do not know people and how they will react to certain situations. By keeping yourself out of those situations you limit the risk of going before your time. She is not going to put her life on the line for people that do not care who they hurt, and how they hurt them. She and her husband have too much to live for and keeping her children safe is the most important thing in their life.

All you can do is have faith in the life that you have, and think that you are making the right decisions for you and your family.

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.
