In this video, I share the journey that I have been on to finding my passion as a blogger. Defining this passion, and exploring my specific areas of interest has been both the most challenging and rewarding. I share my experiences from undergraduate to graduate school, then onto marriage and motherhood, as well as everything in between. I am so excited to share this video with you!
In this video I share the importance of being disciplined in order to avoid procrastination. When we procrastinate we become overwhelmed and create bad habits for ourselves. Here I share how I have avoided the pitfalls of procrastination lately, and how you can do the same!
Let me know what you think!
Video mentioned at end!
Hello My Beautiful Jewels and Gems,
I have been making some very scary decisions lately. The kind of decisions that are life changing. These are the decisions that lead you to self discovery in your twenties. All of us “20 somethings” are faced with important decision after decision. And one does effect the other. So the pressure is on, and it seems non-stop.
What are these decisions I speak of:
- Where will I go to college?
- When will I go to college?
- Where will I work after college?
- Should I travel?
- Should I study abroad?
- Who will I marry?
- How will I find the right one?
- Do I want to have kids?
- How many kids do I want to have?
- When should I start having kids?
- What do I want to be when I grow up?
- How will I become that professional?
- Have I made my parents proud?
- When should I have the next kid?
- When can I buy a house?
- Where will I live?
- What job should I apply for?
- What job should I take?
- Who should I be friends with?
- Who am I?
- What makes me happy?
- Do I like my church?
- Where can I find a church?
- Do I like myself?
- When should I work out? And how much?
As I began writing tonight I realized that apparently, I have a lot to say.
I think about these things all the time, and you would have thought that I would have thought to blog about it right?
Well, I didn’t think of this. Which is very ironic because, I have had this blog for about 8 years. Very rarely have I blogged about myself, occasionally maybe. I purposely left myself out. So maybe it is time for a big scary change. Well scary for me anyway.
Now, to be honest, the fear comes from the unknown, the vulnerability of speaking from my heart. However, you know that is were all the good stuff is anyway right? At least that is what I would like to think.
There is no way that all I have to say can go into one entry. So here is what we are doing. We are making this into a new series on the blog. This series will be entitled as you see above: Confessions of a Mommy Blogger. I will be posting every Monday. Sometimes, it will be this series and others I will just blog about my daily life.
Haha, now I know that I am being very evasive, but work with me here. I am dealing with a lot of abstract thoughts. And yes, I have been told countless times, that I am so “deep”. Let’s begin with what inspired this whole idea anyway.
So, I work as a Substitute Teacher, and I subbed at my old high school this week. I ran right into one of my old coaches. Who is apparently not just a tennis coach, but a life coach too. 🙂 To my surprise, when she saw me she very boldly and quickly asked me what I was still doing here subbing.
That lead to a conversation about finding myself. She told me since I want to blog, then it was time that I began blogging about it. She told me that I am not the only one going through this, and I should share it!
Needless to say, I was enlightened and encouraged so Coach Gagnon thank you! We are off to a great start I can feel it!
Until next week Darlings!

So here it goes!
The little things matter! In love and marriage, it is important to always remember that your spouse may not always outwardly express what they may be feeling, but it is your job to stay in tune with not only their needs but also their wants!
Not only does this make them feel special, but it also makes them feel needed and wanted. Sometimes we find ourselves so wrapped up in our own worlds that we forget to stop and assess what’s going on around us.
It is during these times, that the ones closest to us, might find themselves needing us the most. So, we have to, as they say “take time to smell the roses”. Slow down and connect with your spouse, so that you can attend to what they need.
Did you know that 93% of communication happens nonverbally. There was a study done by Dr. Albert Mehrabian, author of Silent Messages. He found that only 7% of communication happens through words and 38% is expressed through vocal elements. More the 55% is communicated through nonverbal elements such as facial expressions, gestures, posture, and related body language.
Next to God, your spouse has to be the second top priority in your life, more than work or other activities. If they are not happy, it will begin to effect each of you individually; then it will begin to effect your marriage.
So pay close attention to both their verbal and nonverbal cues. If you only listen to the words that you hear and ignore what you see, you are truly missing out on 93% of the bigger picture. Give it a try this week, be attentive to your spouses wants as well as their needs and see just how much you make them smile! Attention to nonverbal cues is essential to keeping a happy marriage!
I Hope This Helps!
