Loved this
My dearest friend said, "I think the best way a parent can give back is to raise children to be productive members of society." I've found it so easy to think about what I can do to improve my life outside my center of influence, instead I need to look hard...

Happy New Year!
This time last year I was recovering from a total thyroidectomy and I learned when I went to New York to see my doctor that I was cancer free.  All the cancer was enclosed within the organ they removed.  Yay! It was just the beginning of figuring out how to...

Happy new year. I've been away from the blog. It's time to jump back in...again.

This week last year I was recovering from total thyroidectomy surgery. I was diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer on November 6, 2015 and the surgery was the following month. Since then my energy levels have been steadily and slowly rising and I'm becoming so much more productive than I was before. I'm so grateful. I want to talk about that more later.

Now that I'm clearer, and feeling better. I'm in a season of my life where four kids and the responsibilities of home overwhelm. This isn't new, this is a pattern. I've always felt this way.

When did I decide everything has to be so hard? There has got to be a better way. It's time for a continuing change this year. Not working harder, just smarter and without judging myself, only love seems to heal me. The rougher I am with myself to motivate like I did in the past, just does the opposite.

Since the surgery, I've been learning and seeing some the unconscious things I've been doing and I've been fascinated. It's so obvious when I see someone else do it, but now I see how unconscious i am about stuff. It's fascinating and it's it's okay. Seeing is enough to make the changes start.

Okay, I love to read books, (hence title of this blog ;) ). Here is the one that has hit my radar this week.

I've been working on making a mission statement for the past few days. Lots of work. I found a cool book by Michal Stawicki, " A Personal Mission Statement: Your Road Map to Happiness. The kindle version was only .99, and I did the audible narration for another couple bucks. I like this book because it's well written, short and to the point with the questions. I'm spending a lot of time on the questions, and noticing what that brings up.

I've had some emotional stuff tangled up about getting things done that are important to me. I'm learning so much. I'm grateful.

Here is to a new year of continuing to feel and see better, and riding the life journey in the most positive manner possible.
Here is to a new year of writnig, and doing my best to blog at least once a week. Even if it's a few sentences.

I'm so grateful to be here another year.
Thank you to my family & friends old and new who, love and support me no matter what I decide to do. Happy New Year! I'm sending out nothing but love.

Memories in Hawaii
During this last trip I learned to paddle board.  For me it was like riding a bike.  When I first learned to ride a bike, I fell down a lot.  It sucked.  I couldn't do it.  It was a day of frustration.  The same on the paddle board.  A lot of falling, and I...

Ohana and Jump
Today I've decided to just jump back in. Okay, just came back from Hawaii, the most beautiful place to me on the planet.  We were in Maui and just sort of hung out on the beach without a plan the entire time.  It was beautiful. I love Hawaii because Ohana (...

Happy Labor Day
I finally went to see " Guardians of the Galaxy"  and I loved it.  I loved everything about it.  The music, the story, the attitude, the flawed characters. It was fun, and it'll be part of my "change my energy" movie list, when I need to get out of a funk. ...

Working my way back
I know I haven't been writing lately.  It's been a choice really to decided to put the kids and others first all the time.  Sometimes instead of writing I read instead.  Even if it's a few minutes, I want to put writing into my routine. We just returned hom...

Maleficent Movie Review, Go see it.
Okay, LOVED it!  Big thumbs up from this humble reviewer.  I did my best to not give anything away since it's still in theaters. Last night I took my girls to see a movie they had already seen with their dad.  I heard good things from them, and I was intrig...
