Storytime: Learning how to rest

Hello and welcome to my blog! Happy Hump day! I’m really tired and in pain. How are you doing? I’ve been feeling tired even after drinking coffee twice a day for a few days but I still pushed myself to be productive. My left foot has been hurting me for 3 weeks and I’ve beenContinue reading “Storytime: Learning how to rest”

Reminder: You are learning not failing

If at first you don’t succeed, see it a learning opportunity not a failure. How often do you try something, decide you’re not good at it, and give up? Whether it’s learning a new language or skill, it takes time. Practice makes perfect, but choose progress over perfection. I wrote poems for 10 years beforeContinue reading “Reminder: You are learning not failing”

Wednesday Wisdom: A lesson in tolerance

Hello and welcome to my blog! It’s funny how I’m giving a lesson in tolerance when I need one. I’m going to be honest here. I’m not a very tolerant person with my loved ones.

Storytime: How can I motivate my son to learn?

I sit here at 10:30pm, tea cup in my hand (too late for coffee) while I contemplate my parenting techniques.

To my son on his 6th birthday

Dear son, My sunshine ☀ Happy birthday! I tried to make your birthday special… I took you out. You got a haircut, then threw a tantrum because your hair didn’t look like your cousin’s hair. I had a talk with you about wanting to copy your cousins all the time. I told you it wasContinue reading “To my son on his 6th birthday”

Teaching my son about boundaries

This is really a tough topic to write about for me, because I myself react to my boundaries being crossed by crying or anger (after holding it in, trying to let it go, bringing it up at the wrong time or in the wrong way, getting pushback, then exploding). I’m trying to learn and teachContinue reading “Teaching my son about boundaries”
