I noticed that it’s been a while since I talked about my favorite girl.
For those that follow me or have enjoyed my posts on being a first time parent this is for you!
Shit is happening fast!
That’s the first thing that pops into my head. Two months ago she was still an infant, that is no longer the case! In two short months my baby left and this toddler took her place! How did that happen?!?! Continue reading “My Favorite Girl”
Have people always taken everything so personal?
Is this really a 21st century mentality?
I’ve noticed more and more than conversation and debate with people who think differently from you is becoming nearly impossible. When you get deep into the topic and become passionate people are quick to assume that passion is directed at them and not at the topic at hand.
I’m guilty of it myself. There are times I start to feel that the person I’m interacting with has turned the conversation into a personal attack.
The topic is dropped and the focus becomes changing my mind. Not broadening my view but making me understand that my views are wrong and that I need to change them.
In this, I hope I am not guilty. I never set out to change other people’s beliefs, values or ideals. I simply want to provide more knowledge. I believe that we can only grow and evolve through experience and shared knowledge.
In order to understand and respect others we all need to be able to listen. More often than not we hear words but are so busy waiting to respond we fail to acknowledge others.
I know I’m getting pretty deep but that’s where I’m at lately. I’m inside my head most the day, thinking and looking for ways to grow. Once I’m home I’m interacting with my daughter and hoping that I’m instilling positive qualities in her, despite the fact that she’s a year old and just wants to play.
I’m done with being meek around those who make me uncomfortable, I’m turning the tables. I will no longer be intimated by people who want to bully me into their ideals. I will assert my power and knowledge.
I really try to accept everyone for who they are, I really do. But when a person plays the role of constant victim or the perpetual martyr I’m become enraged.
I have no empathy, sympathy or tolerance for it. Continue reading “Go be a victim somewhere else…”
I’ve struggled with whether or not I wanted to write this particular post.
I decided to write it because it won’t leave my brain. It’s constantly in there turning round and round. I’m trying to see it from a non-personal or emotion stand-point and that’s just isn’t happening.

Thank you to Little Kims for the complimentary bibs. I received them in exchange for an honest review. No money has or will be exchanged. My review is my own words.
That being said….
I feel like it was an extremely lucky twist of fate that I was scrolling through one of the blog groups I frequent and came across a post asking if anyone was interested in reviewing some bibs for a New York based company.
Being a brand ambassador and/or product reviewer is something I’ve been slowing trying to break into this year. These bibs are my first real shot, so here goes! Continue reading “Little Kims Bibs!”
