Give me a break..

For those who choose it, being a parent is a blessing, and most Moms are willing to make sacrifices to be a good one (though it’s normal to try and fail.) However, not getting regular breaks, makes a person less successful, not more successful. So, I would ask the question “Why is it that if a Mom does want/need to work and/or wants/needs to spend time alone reconnecting with herself or her friends, she (more often than not) has to stress and jump through hoops (that usually make it not worth it, if not impossible) but it’s automatically assumed that a father is intitled to these things, and carried out without thought, stress, or hoops..?

Journaling

Why I Journal:
I am not always particularly good at keeping a Journal.  I am however a firm believer in the benefits it provides. I am hoping I will get better at it with time. Most of the time when I journal I am just rambling on aimlessly.
Luckily the point is not to have something eloquent to say, rather to just say something. I believe it helps to un-jumble things in my brain. So hopefully the more unclear, messy, and insensible my writing is, the more organized my thoughts will be afterwards 🙂 I also think it is a tool in helping to get feelings and emotions out before sharing them with other people.
When I do share with other people I want to do so with positive intention.

Journal Kit!


SO Neat!
