Blog networking is one of the most undervalued and underused strategies for most.  But I believe it is at the core for growing a blog.  You will find links in this post to help eliminate some of the work; all you have to do is LIKE, COMMENT and FOLLOW others.  The more you network with other blogs, the more other blogs will network with you!

Hidden Figures

This is Two Are Better Than One!

Two Are Better Than One

Yesterday is gone, but clips from the day have traveled into the future with me. Between loads of laundry and two cups of Columbian coffee, my husband and I slipped away for a few hours to grab lunch and a matinee. We saw Hidden Figures — though most of the world had already seen it. If you haven’t, don’t wait any longer, it’s definitely worth your time and money.

I knew I wanted to see it ever since I discovered that the three ladies about whom this story is told are my Sorors — sisters in service to Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. I wanted to read the book first though, but time just didn’t permit. What I expected to see was an inspiring story — one that would prompt me to pursue my dreams now rather than later. In that regard, it surpassed my expectations. What I didn’t expect…

What Makes You Think You’re So Different Than Everyone Else?

dream-big-printWhat is it that defines you?  What sets you apart?  I am often perplexed when people cannot answer the simplest of questions about themselves, yet can speak at length about the latest fashion trend or political drama.

I wonder why people struggle answering these questions.  Why is it that we can be so entranced by the goings-on in the world and so disconnected with ourselves?  We are familiar with every character on television, but we don’t know ourselves.  Many would rather spend countless hours surrounded by the noise of the world, than spend 1 hour alone with themselves.

Do you know who you are?  Do you know what makes you unique?  And I’m not talking about generic answers, but detailed, introspective revelations.  What makes you, you?  What makes you think you are so different than everyone else?  The fact that you are unique is not in question for no two humans are alike.  But do you own the facts of what makes you different than any other human on the planet?

Could it be that it is time for you to spend so time with yourself?

A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot and realise how blessed you are.

Here to do good…

I love this quote I found on A Hansen Chronicle!!

A Hansen Chronicle

“We are here on earth to do good to others. What the others are here for, I don’t know.”

Where Do Babies Come From?

Warning – the post below contains conversations explaining sex to my children.  If you do not want to read…. Stop now!

A few years back, Brooke(now 15 yr. old) was in in 2nd grade around the age of 7 or 8 when she asked the dreaded question: “Where do babies come from?”  Noooooo!  I thought I had WAY more time before this question came up.

Let me set the scene – It was around 7am and I was driving the girls to school.  I was an administrator at an elementary school and both the girls were in school there – Avery in 5th grade and Brooke in 2nd grade.  Both girls were in the back seat of the car as I drove.  I had not had the “sex conversation” with Avery, even though she was almost 10.  I knew I should have it soon, but had just not…
