Mommy Monday – Confessions of a Mommy Blogger – 20 Something Year Olds – Early Life Crisis

921157_498458966881238_1967648662_o.jpgHello 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:

  1. Where will I go to college?
  2. When will I go to college?
  3. Where will I work after college?
  4. Should I travel?
  5. Should I study abroad?
  6. Who will I marry?
  7. How will I find the right one?
  8. Do I want to have kids?
  9. How many kids do I want to have?
  10. When should I start having kids?
  11. What do I want to be when I grow up?
  12. How will I become that professional?
  13. Have I made my parents proud?
  14. When should I have the next kid?
  15. When can I buy a house?
  16. Where will I live?
  17. What job should I apply for?
  18. What job should I take?
  19. Who should I be friends with?
  20. Who am I?
  21. What makes me happy?
  22. Do I like my church?
  23. Where can I find a church?
  24. Do I like myself?
  25. 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!

Benefits of Asparagus – Ask Chauntel Fruit for Thought Friday

1It’s time for your weekly Fruit for Thought! A weekly bit of inspiration where I share both natural and spiritual food along with an #inspirationalquote#acfruitforthought

2So I will be mixing up#naturalfruits and #veggiesfor my weekly #acfruitforthought! This weeks food of choice is the asparagus! In a natural sense #asparagus are good for you as aids in digestion, maintains bone strength, reduces the risk of heart disease, fights cancer, natural aphrodisiac, and amateur all laxative.
Now for your spiritual fruit! I think this verse is important to keep in mind when interacting with other people! I believe it is something that these police who have been involved in murdering innocent men should keep in mind. I also think it is something that we all have to keep in mind because killing police is also not the answer! For God says that vengeance is mine! “Do to others as you would like them to do to you.” -Luke 6:31

3With all the recent murders of black men by the police, I must take a moment to remind the world life matters! God did not give it to us to take other’s away! #blacklivesmatter #stopthehate also killing police is not the answer!#dallaspoliceshooting Lets be slow to anger and show love #inspirationalquote#acfruitforthought
