March Madness - Day 4

Be Spontaneous! It can open your eyes to new things!

When was the last time you did something without a plan?

Sometimes our lives get so regimented that we run on auto pilot. I'm sure you've been there before.

  • It's the place where you get where you're going with no thought. You take the same route over and over and rarely deviate. 
  • It's the marriage where's you co-exist in the same house but it doesn't feel like home. You know what needs to get done and it happens, sometimes taking your spouse for granted. 
  • It's the parent who raises all of his/her children the same way. The parent fails to take into account that each child is an individual and may need something different. 

Auto pilot can be a good thing....at times. But only sometimes.

There is a whole world of experience and excitement that we miss out on when we fail to change things up.

If you're anything like me, you don't like change.

However, I'm learning that change is inevitable. Most importantly, there's so much life and opportunity waiting for you on the other end of change.

Over the past month, I have experienced a change in job, residence, and family circumstance. It's a lot of change all at one time, but I wouldn't have it any other way. My mind is open like never before.

That's what happens when you decide to do something that is not all the way thought through.

YOU SHIFT!

I don't know how long we can pay to run two households.
I don't know how long we can all be apart from each other.
I don't know where I will live in 45 days.
I don't know where the kids will attend school next year.

All I know is that we are LIVING IN THE MOMENT....TODAY!

That's what spontaneity is all about.

What can you do today that's spontaneous?

More Than Words

It's September and you know what that means....

Wait, you do know what that means, right?!

Just in case you did not guess it, school 🏫 is back in session.  

It is the time of year of growing, planning, reading, thinking, and so much more.

This is an especially challenging year for me. I, yes I - well at least figuratively speaking, will be graduating 🎓 from 8th grade and also 12th grade. Yes, lots of big accomplishments. I'm excited and nervous, all at the same time.

But I am also starting a feel a little overwhelmed. As I started this school year, I accepted a new responsibility. I agreed to read all of the books 📚 that are needed to fulfill the 8th grade Language Arts requirements. Yes, this was completely voluntarily. I am not quite sure what I was thinking, though I am pretty sure the words spit out of my mouth before my mind knew what was happening. I guess I figured that was the price of good parenting. What even is 'good parenting' anyway?

At any rate, I have start…
