Are We Really Equals?

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) but 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 as well 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!
