I was listening to Nick G, from The Dependent Independent, this morning and he really inspired me. He was talking about being grateful. More importantly, he was talking about the mundane, every day stuff, that we can and should be thankful for but sometimes feel ashamed for feeling grateful.
For instance, I’m grateful for how confident I am becoming. Saying that out loud might seem pompous or egotistical but that’s ok. I’ve worked really hard to become more confident. I still have days and moments when I’m far from confident but that is also ok. I’m grateful for the change. Continue reading “Thankful at Thanksgiving”
I posted a picture earlier this week. It was of me 8 weeks post-partum and one of me as of Sunday, October 29, 2017. The difference to me is shocking. It might not be to others but they don’t really know what is most shocking to me.
I’m about to tell you.
I’m extremely scared to tell this story but it’s been on my mind and in my head for too long. I need to release it and allow me to embrace and accept me.
Prior to discovering I was pregnant on July 4, 2015, I was self-destructing. Continue reading “Shaking with Fear, Sharing my Truth”
Why do I torture myself?
Why do I intentionally read about current events that I know will enrage me?
I’ll tell you why, because I’d rather be inform than be ignorant. I think many public officials should learn that lesson.
I feel like we’re being thrown so much sensationalism that we’re losing what truth is and used to be. We can no longer trust the words written and said because we can’t trust the people that provide the information. Continue reading “We the People, All people…”
In wanting to try and have some sense of normalcy so that I don’t completely lose my mind I’m here to bring you my favorite podcast of the week!
I actually listen to this religiously every week. It helps me to feel informed. There isn’t any propaganda. It is strictly facts from a moderate stand-point.
The podcast is Abe Lincoln’s Top Hat with Ben Kissel and Marcus Parks!
It’s the only political podcast I’ve been able to find that stays in the middle. It speaks to me because I am a moderate Liberal. I’m fed up with Washington, with politicians and with the excuses and so are the hosts.
They talk about what is happening all over the country and all over the world. The discussions can get heated but never become personal. That is something we have lost as a society. They ability to converse without feeling like we’re being personally attacked. This happens on both sides so please don’t accuse me of choosing one side over the other. They both carry the blame and in the same breath can both provide a solution.
If you’re into politics or not and are looking for information without rhetoric then I definitely recommend you check out Abe Lincoln’s Top Hat.
New shows post every Friday on wherever you get your podcast! You can also check them their Facebook group.
