The One Where Doogie Howzer (Indian Edition) Almost Delivered My Baby! #BirthStories

But I Smile Anyway...

Recently, I have read a few really lovely birth stories on various blogs, and it prompted me to reminisce on my blog about my own!

Some of you may know, and the newer followers may not, but my pregnancies didn’t come easy.

After a year of unsuccessful trying, I was diagnosed with PCOS, and it took another year, give or take, to fall pregnant finally,

You can read about it here, in my post When Will Someone Call Me Mummy?

After the struggle to get there, my first pregnancy was absolutely perfect. No morning sickness, no real tiredness, just a healthy bump that grew strong.

I was one week away from my maternity leave. The plan was that I would leave two weeks prior to my due date so I could relax, and well, you know, first babies never came on time, so I would probably get longer to enjoy…

45 Life Lessons Written By A 90 Year Old

1 Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

2 When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3 Life is too short not to enjoy it.

4 Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.

5 Don’t buy stuff you don’t need.

6 You don’t have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.

7 Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.

8 It’s OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9 Save for things that matter.

Today’s Going To Be A Great Day

Danny

Today’s Going To Be A Great Day…

I am in Asheboro NC today after finishing up a planning session with the local manager yesterday.  I’m not sure I’ve ever talked about what it is that I do so here goes a quick snapshot.

I work for the largest daily print media company in the U.S. in the marketing division in the southeast.  I started off as a digital marketing account executive in June 2016 and was promoted to a regional manager position at the beginning of this year.

I travel the southeast helping our marketing people understand how to be more professional and better at the sales call process in order to help local businesses get more customers.  I’ll go in to a property and assess their skills and goals and then help them get better.

It’s a fun job and might be the perfect position for me with a little travel and an ever-changing working environment.  I like being in a different city each week and I enjoy working with different people every day.

Today I will be doing a pop-in surprise visit to review some training from last week and to check progress on a few accounts.  After this visit I will be in the car driving to Gastonia, NC (about 2 hours) to finish up a few things there and then back to Charlotte.

I hope that whatever today brings, you find yourself in a good mood, grounded and focused!  Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Danny

Storms And Floods And Bats, Oh My! – Coping With Stress

Reclaiming HOPE

Storms.....Coping With Stress

I was getting ready for church on Sunday morning when suddenly my husband came in and said, “There’s a bat in the house.” Thinking that surely I couldn’t have heard him right, I repeated what he had just said to me.

I followed him out into the family room, and sure enough, there was a bat flying around in there. We closed off the doors into the dining room and hallway to keep him contained and keep the dogs out, and set about trying to catch him. My husband grabbed my lightweight blanket that I keep out there, and whenever he got close to the bat, he would throw the blanket, trying to cover it and knock it to the ground. In the meantime, I stationed myself over by the kitchen area with a towel and whenever it came my way I’d flap the towel to try to steer it…

Buddy, can you spare word or two? – The Cancer Bus

Expressing the greedy silence A picture’s worth of words Swallowed whole by memory’s avarice. Wishing wells charge five cents for Lies it disguises as your dreams and Sells for a penny a dozen accidents. Ascending into the ravenous night, Darkness craves sleepers who whisper Hungry with the first sun’s frowning light. Handmade gifts thoughtfully cost […]

Misfit

Issues from the Heart

Have you ever felt like you were a misfit? Have you ever been in a situation where you have even been told that you are not the right fit? Do you stick out like a sore thumb in your social arena or family?  Have you ever felt or been made to feel like you are a square peg trying to fit into a round hole? Well, you are not alone!

Often when we feel or have been made to feel like a misfit due to society’s standard or our associations, we think that we serve no real purpose or even worst are not valuable. Negative thoughts cascade through our minds and the will to break-free of the strongholds that disempower is nowhere in close proximity.  However, I dare to let you know that this is not true. You are very important! You are valuable! You were designed with a purpose in mind. In fact…

Sustainable Fashion

RAFA FARIHAH

The fashion industry is fast paced. The moment one trend is “in”, it is considered dull the very next. Don’t let labels define what looks good on you, what is chic and what is not. You are the master of your own life. Your body is merely a car that you control. Just like you can upgrade your ride with forced induction, a custom paint job, and better brakes, your attire represents you. Be yourself.  Help replenish the Earth of it resources. Reuse. Recycle. Be fashionable. YOUR WAY.
