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.

Challenging yourself


A2Z-BADGE [2016]

Challenging yourself throughout your life is something that will always happen. You have to challenge yourself to be better at everything that you do within your life. You cannot settle for nothing less that the best. People may make fun of you because you like to spend your time challenging yourself to learn more about everything in your life. It may be related to work or something else in your life.

She likes to spend her time reading about multiple things and spending time with her family. Using her mind to  make the best of the things that she has in her life. You can only worry about things that are going on around you instead of worrying about things that you cannot control.

Life is a challenge and you have to be willing to go the extra mile to achieve the things that you want out of that life. If you just sit around playing video games you will never accomplish anything but your high score. Making yourself a list of goals to achieve will help you through the challenges that you will face throughout your life.

Things always have a challenging part to them and sometimes you have to be strategic in how you approach those challenges. For example, a person going to college needs to prioritize what they think is the most important thing like graduating college. Instead of putting those assignments on hold because there is a party going on at another person’s frat house. The reason you went to college in the first place is to get that education to get the job that you have spent so much money on.

Achieving a challenge is the greatest feeling that you can have throughout your life because you are working towards something better. You are striving to make your life better by using your money wisely, saving for the future, and making sure that you can become self-sufficient in the world that we are living in now.

Achievment’s


A2Z-BADGE [2016]

As this year proceeds she is  reminded of the achievements that she has made throughout this year have made her realize that things happen for a reason. She may not understand at the moment why things are not going my way. However, you have to take things in with a grain of salt. Sometimes we always do not understand why things happen and we think that the world is coming down all at once. Sometimes it does come down all at once and there is nothing that you can do but work through the ups and downs of your life.

Eventually, things come together when they should and then there is nothing left but for you to live your life the way that you want. Sometimes, we reflect on the things that we have been through that have brought us to this point in our life. These things that happen make you realize that life is worth the wait. Even though things may look dull from time to time you have to work through the hardest parts of your life to make it to where you want to be.

That means that you have to work twice as hard to get the things that you want out of your life. Even if that means that you do not get to see your family quite as much as you would like. In the end everything that you do in your life you can always count on it being worth the wait. You are an influence to your children and to the people that you are around when you show them that you are willing to go the extra mile to get the things that you want out of life.

You cannot take things for granted, and you have to appreciate the things that you have in order to make it in the world. If you do not appreciate the things that you have and are not grateful for the things that you work so hard for then you will never have anything in your life that is worth anything. She has worked hard for everything that she has in her life and she has accomplished so much throughout her life in the past ten years.

Some of the accomplishments in her life is that she graduated college with a B average in all her degree’s. She has finally got the job that she went to college for and put her skills to the test. Throughout, the process there are pitfalls, and obstacles that she will face throughout the process. However, in the end it is all worth the time and effort that she is putting in to the job at hand. She has homeschooled her children for the last five years, and one of the children will be graduating next year.

Life sends so many things your way and you have to work through them in order to get the desired result. You cannot listen to other people or let them bring you down because you are working towards the things that you want out of your life. When you are happy with the things that are going on in your life then all you need to worry about is the things that will make you happy and successful in the world. Instead of being a follower  be the leader and show people that you have what it takes to achieve everything that you want out of life.

People seem to think  that you need friends to survive in the world. Well she is one of the exceptions because she does not need friends to make her world go round. She has her family and that is all that she needs to make her world go round and round. With three teenager’s in the house there is no  room for anything else but family. She does not need to go out and party with friends just so they can stab her in the back and make fun of her. She does not need to go spend time at other people’s house or have parties of her own.

Just when you think that things cannot get any better something always happens to make that change your mind. Living for the moment is not something that you do when you have plans for the future. Making sure that you can survive anything that comes your way is the most important thing. Being self-sufficient is something that everyone should work on throughout their life because it may come in handy one day.

A New Year and A New Beginning


As the New Year comes in there have been some changes in my life that is going to be better for my family. With that being said, I have come to realize that with more responsibility you do not have enough time in the day to write as much as you would like to. The long days of working a full-time job, and homeschooling the children makes harder to write and keep up on things that you want to do.

The future holds some great challenges that will takes every ounce of energy that  I have to make it the best year.  A new promotion at work.  This is something that I have waited for the past few years. I am proud of the accomplishments that I have done the past few years. However, this is the best one of all accomplishments because I am a unit manager.  I have made it to the corporate world. 

Through everything you go through in life something  always makes it better.  If you believe in everything that you do good things will happen and you will achieve your goals that you put in place.  Life is unpredictable and you have to go through  the obstacles that come your way but you will come out stronger and ready for anything else that comes your way. 

Life is about making sacrifices and working towards something better on your life.  Not only for yourself but for your family.  You cannot worry about other people because you have your own family to worry about, and making sure that they have everything they need is your first priority.

In the end everything will turn out for the better.  You will have a great year,  and make goals to achieve in the upcoming year. Of course, there will be new challenges,  and obstacles to overcome in the New Year but you will manage to break through those challenges, and obstacles to reach the outcome that you desire.

HERE’S TO HOPING THAT THE NEW YEAR IS EVERYTHING THAT YOU HOPE IT WILL BE.

A New Chapter


You know in an earlier post when she started this blog she wrote about tradeoffs that you face throughout your life. Well in addition to that article here is something else that she can add to that line of thinking.

Throughout your life you have different chapter’s some close, and some stick around for a while. However, you have to make the best of the chapter’s that you have throughout your life and make the outcome what you want it to be. Sometimes this is hard to do with everything that is going on in your life with work, children, family, and everything else that you have to do in a day’s time. Starting a new chapter in your life requires communication with your family, and discussing the outcome of the new chapter. This new chapter of life requires spending more of your time at your job and less time with your family. However, the benefits of the new chapter are what counts because it means a better life for you and your family. Now, it is your time to shine and make the most of the career that you have chosen.

Writing is another one of those chapter’s and right now it is hard to spend the amount of time that you would like on the writing and keeping the reader’s coming back to read the articles that you write. Although many reader’s understand and know that you have entered a new chapter in your life some reader’s do not want to stick around to wait for more articles because you are not posting regularly like you were earlier within the year. This is fine with her because she has a lot going on right now and with the promotion, homeschooling, and family time it does not leave enough time in the day to spend on writing.

Somewhere, along the way she has to put something aside and think about it later. She is grateful for the reader’s that are sticking with her blog and continuing to visit the articles that she has posted over the past two years. It makes her feel good that people are still reading the things that she has written about throughout the years. Advancement in her job is something that she has waited for a long time. Now, she spends her time training, and learning about new things that will help her throughout her career. She works 11 hours a day, comes home to grade papers for the day, visits with the family, and then spends some time working on things that she must study for work.

If putting off writing for a little while helps her in the conquest to making a better choice for her career then that is what it means. Periodically, she will still post a few articles however, it may take a little longer to get them finished for posting because of the tight schedule that she is on right now. She hopes that her reader’s and the future reader’s of this blog will understand the commitment to making this part of her career a success.

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.

Aside

The Illness that Took her life


Italo Calvino said: The more enlightened our houses are, the more their walls ooze ghosts. Describe the ghosts that live in this house: Image credit: “love Don’t live here anymore…” – © 2009 Robb North – made available under Attribution 2.0 Generic

At one moment in time this house had the love of time, until that dreadful day when everything went downhill. A single woman just living on her own after moving out of her parents house. On the search to find the true love that she has always hoped for within her life. She becomes ill with a disease that is incurable. She looses faith that she will never find the love of her life in time before the illness takes her to that beautiful place in the sky. She is not scared of death. She only hoped to find the love, romance, and compassion that everyone dreams about within their life. Someone to spend the rest of their life with before the illness takes full affect. The ghost that lives in this house is a kindhearted ghost that missed out on many things in life because of an illness that had no cure. Now, she will never find the true love that she wanted so badly before leaving this world.

More to come! It is a work in progress….

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.

How Quickly Can Someone Be Dependent on Drugs?


180211_10150960014629939_177941515_n

In this world it is so easy to become dependent on drugs with all the problems that people have in the world. It becomes easy for people to depend on the drugs instead of facing the problems head on because it is convenient to buy the drugs instead of working through their problems. Therefore, growing up in this world is hard enough without the pressure of becoming dependent on drugs. Of course, people are certainly curious as to why people become dependent on the drugs that they choose. She believes that when you hang around people that are dependent on drugs you will eventually become just like them. Dependency on drugs usually means that someone is going through a rough time in their life. Therefore, becoming a dependent of drugs usually means that they are trying to escape from the trials and tribulations of life.

She knows that many things that happen in your life can result into the dependency to drugs to relieve the pain, stress, and many other things that they are facing within their life.   She does not understand why they do not seek help instead of resorting to drugs. Throughout the world there are many places that are here to help people get past the trials and tribulations of their life instead of resorting to taking drugs.

When people start depending on drugs to cure the ailments of their life it becomes a habit that is hard to kick because your body is dependent on the drug that they are taking. Without warning it becomes a part of your life. Here you are stuck with a drug addiction that you cannot kick because of anger, pain, suffering, and everything else that is going on in your life.

When you know of someone that is dependent on drugs you see different mood swings, attitude changes, and changes in the things that they do in their life. Sometimes people who are dependent on drugs will do things that they normally would not do because they are coming down off of their high.

Before you know it a day or week has gone by and your friend is looking for a way to get their fix on their choice of drug. They cannot deal with the everyday life because of their dependency on drugs. Many people do not like to be around others that are doing drugs or become dependent on drugs for the fun of it. People that are dependent on drugs do not think about the consequences of their actions until it is too late.

There is help out there if you are willing to make the time to make a change in your life. Having a dependency on drugs is never easy and it takes time to get through the roughest part of cleaning your system of the drugs that you have put into your body. However, you have to keep it in your mind that you are better than the drug. You have to take a stand and make something of yourself instead of relying on the drugs to make your life better.

Sometimes friends, family members, and people that you love dearly need to be put in a place where they are able to detox from the drugs that they are dependent on. In reality, you need to help your family, friends or the people that you love and try to get them the help that they need to not be dependent on the drugs that they are taking.

What is more interesting is the amount of money that it takes to purchase the drugs that they are dependent on. In most scenarios one pill may cost up to $20 dollars or more and if one person is buying five or more a day then that turns out to be quite a bit of money especially if they need more than one pill a day. Your friend or family member needs to know that there is help out there and that you are standing behind them the whole way.

Sometimes they will not listen to reason because they are so dependent on drugs that no matter what you say or do it would not matter much to them. If they are not going to help themselves and admit to having a problem then there is not much that you could accomplish. Most of the time people who are dependent on drugs will blame the people who are trying to help them through their hard time. When in reality, they are the ones who need the love and attention that many people fail to provide to loved ones or friends.

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.
