Understanding Happiness
Sunday, January 24, 2010      4 comments

I loved seeing this Healthy Reflection today in my Inbox! It is right where I am today so the confirmation was perfect. The first two lines sum it up: "Happiness is a state of mind, not a way of life or a destination that you'll reach one day... Read more

After my "down" day yesterday I must report that today is much better. Thank you to everyone that left notes and goodies! Anyway, the hormones are back on a good level (whew!) and I was able to defuse ds and his chosen battle during math today... Read more
Worthy or Not Worthy
Wednesday, January 20, 2010      5 comments

This one is just miserable for me to read today and the reason is that I am currently not a cheerful parent with my son and I've not been the example that I want him to see. (The "attutude" has reared its ugly head with his math again and 3 st... Read more
Poise in the face of frustration
Friday, January 15, 2010      4 comments

Well, I for one did not have poise or anything of the kind yesterday in the face of frustration. I actually call it a "Mommy Meltdown" and it isn't pretty. I'm thankful that I can count those types of meltdowns on one hand after 8 years with t... Read more
Pushing Myself
Thursday, January 14, 2010      4 comments

The part that I heard loudest today from the Healthy Reflection was "Our bodies and minds are capable of overcoming much more than we could ever imagine if we just try." So today my goal is to find something that pushes me a little harder. I w... Read more

Valuing My Time
Wednesday, January 06, 2010      0 comments

How true is this statements? "While your life might seem like a long time in the midst of it, truly it is a blink of an eye." Good reminder that I'm on the right track with prioritizing the "to do" in each day! As this Reflection also stated.... Read more
Explore Your Dreams
Monday, January 04, 2010      0 comments

This is something I've never been good at: letting go of the fear and achieving my dreams, taking risks and going boldly forward. I've always been quite introverted (VERY much so on any of those personality tests.) and I've always been very lo... Read more
Time to Slow Down

"Sometimes.... the best thing you can do it step away, take a breath, and come back to tackle the problem with a clear head." And I do believe that is what I've been doing along with many of my SP friends! We're taking the time to step back an... Read more
Get out of the way!!!
Thursday, December 31, 2009      3 comments

The first thought I had after reading today's "Healthy Reflection" was OUCH! I am definitely guilty of weighing myself down with things such as "pessimism, not being honest with yourself, severe self-criticism, downplaying achievements, focusin... Read more

Tuesday, December 29, 2009      2 comments

They got me again! Here's the part that hit today out of the Healthy Reflection: "Define yourself as your task, and that's all you'll ever be. Define yourself as your contribution to your family, and suddenly you're a very important part of a ... Read more
