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


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.

My Home Town

Today is quite chilly here in Newport, Tennessee. A small town that no one hears about unless something tragic happens. Sometimes it is nice to live in a small town because you know just about everyone.

The mountains give off an energy, and a calming that nothing else can. Nothing can top the fog covered mountains early in the morning.


What a wonderful view to wake up to every morning. Many people would rather live in a small town instead of a big city. The population is very low, and many of the people that they see are tourists on their way to Gatlinburg, Sevierville, and Pigeon Forge. These areas have many attractions for people to see, and plenty of shops to find that right gift for you or a loved one.

Another beautiful chilly day here in Newport, Tennessee. The children are getting ready for the school day. Breakfast is cooking and the wood stove is burning. Warning up in here already what a way to spend the morning. As she looks out her window to se the beautiful mountains that provide her with the serenity, and peace of mind. It is not that bad living in a small town however, there are times when she wished that there were more jobs to choose from.

A small town is a wonderful place to raise your children. A home is where you feel right at home with the ones that you love. Spending the holiday time with family and friends while catching up on the comings and goings of life.

Everyone has problems, issues, and other things that prevent spending time with the ones that you love. Just knowing that your family and friends are the when you need them the most.

Spent some time with the family for the holidays. It is wonderful to see everyone. The children had a wonderful time. Of course, by the time they arrived home the children were wired from the candy that they had eaten. Even though they are becoming teenagers the look on their smiling faces while opening their presents is something that she will never forget. The children are her lifeline she wants to make sure that they know how the real world is and what the real world expects from us. Working your fingers to the bones, and thanking the lord for the money that you are making. Thanking him for the job that you have because it allows you to pursue your dreams that you would love to accomplish one day.

It will happen one day she will be the writing star that she wants. She spends her time writing about the things that happen in her life. With the children there is never a dull moment. As her children start getting older she starts to pursue a career in a totally different direction than what she had planned. She recently sent an application for an online instructor. Of course, there is no reason to get her hopes up that she will get the position. She will go on with her day regardless, of what happens.


The foggy, misty, and chilly morning in Newport, Tennessee. The birds are still sleeping most of the time you hear them bright and early in the morning. The interstate traffic flows up and down. People heading to different destinations. The holidays are upon us as families come together and enjoy the holiday meals, games, and other things as well. What a wonderful time of year. Have a wonderful Merry Christmas with your family and friends.

The children are doing their studies, and listening to the radio on country music of course. Sham runs through the house looking for something to get into. She has worked hard at getting her information to become an online professor. Without letting her hopes become the better of her emotions this way she will not be too upset if they do not accept the application.

The children fight over the littlest things it is quite amazing how they do not think about what they are arguing over. They think that the parents do not hear everything they say.

Another year is just about gone and the next year is going yo be even better. She never thought that she would be this far from achieving some of the other goals that she has set out for herself.

The point in your life when what you do is for yourself. Your children are growing up and now it is time to fulfill your remainding dreams of being important and leaving a legacy behind. Time to pass on the knowledge and information that you have learned throughout your years. Learning more each day about politics, business, life, and everything else.
