Awesome inspirational quote to kick off 2012

OK so I saw this quote tonight on facebook and just loved it so I thought it is a great one to believe in to start off 2012--- Start off 2012 in a positive mindset!!

"It is what it is"....

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. Life is beauty, admire it. Life is bliss, taste it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge, meet it. Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it. Life is a tragedy, confront it. Life is an adventure, dare it. Life is luck, make it. Life is too precious, do not destroy it. Life is life, fight for it

Oh boy, I went on a ramble last night

Sorry for my rambling last night. I just needed to chat. Unfortunately, life doesn't always have it's good days but the goal is to have your good days outnumber your bad days :-)

Here's a little inspiration for the day

I need some help tonight in inspirational motivation

Hi my fellow blog lovers
I am struggling tonight with emotional decisions :-( I try to provide inspirational motivation all the time. I don't know if anyone really reads my blog (but to me, it is my emotional journey) and it allows me to just type what I can't really talk about to anyone else. I need to vent and this is my best way. You don't really know me so you can just listen and offer your unbiased opinion. That's all I really want.
If any of you have read my blog from the beginning, you will know the real emotional struggles that I have overcome and you would also know that my daughter is my main inspiration for being the very best person that I can be. I had a crappy childhood to say the least (read my earliest posts and you will understand). I have worked damn hard and read countless self help books to overcome. I have a great life now (because I forced that in my life) I choose to live a happy life. I choose not to dwell on my childhood and past mistakes. Damn it, I choose to be happy!
So I guess you are asking that if I am so happy, why am I posting this??

Why? Because it concerns my daughter (my greatest love of all) Her father hasn't been consistently in her life since she was 3 (she is 13) Sure, he has been a drop in and drop out dad but I have tried to protect my daughter. I had a shit ass dad and I have always tried to protect my own baby girl from that. (read my blog archive from the very beginning and you will know my story and see how far I have come)

I got with my husband when my daughter was 6 and for the past 7 years, my husband (her step dad) has been her father figure. He has coached her softball teams, taken her and supported her with all her dance endeavors ( she is in competitive dance and has dance class 4 days a week) He is the one at every school event and both praising and disciplining every report card. He pushes her to do her absolute best (and scolds her when she is wrong). He financially supports her, covers all her health insurance and just loves her to pieces. My husband (her stepdad) is her dad and has been for the last 7 years. My life is good and I guess you could say I am really happy and the very fear of something screwing my happy life up scares me to a point of an emotional breakdown (which is what I am having right now) I had such a bad childhood and I am so happy right now in my life because everything just works out for me. The very thought of something screwing that up scares me to death. My daughter is so happy and so successful!! She is everything that I ever wished I could have been back at the age of 13 (Beautiful, Smart, Confident) She is just a wonderful person
so to make a long story short haha, he (her father) is now in jail serving a 2 year sentence for burglary and he has found god and misses his daughter yada yada. He is calling my house with collect calls wanting to speak to my daughter. (I wont accept the charges) He writes me letters telling me that I am a horrible person because I keep him from his daughter.

So am I horrible? That's what I am asking of you. I don't believe he's changed. If I believed for one moment, I would allow him in her life. He has hurt her so many times that I just can't do that to her again.

Let me know what you think

Too True not to Repost

I received a great forward today at work and there was so much truth in this that I just had to share

This should be required reading for every man, woman and child in the UK , United States of America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, etc.

"I'm 74 and I'm Tired" – by Bill Cosby

I'm 74. Except for brief period in the 50's when I was doing my National Service, I've worked hard since I was 17. Except for some some serious health challenges, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn't call in sick in nearly 40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as though retirement was a bad idea, and I'm tired. Very tired.

I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic. I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.

I'm tired of being told that Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family "honour"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren't "believers"; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for "adultery"; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur'an and Shari'a law tells them to.
I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must let Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries use our oil money to fund mosques and mandrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia, New Zealand, UK, America, South Africa and Canada, while no one from these countries are allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia or any other Arab country to teach love and tolerance..

I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate.

I'm tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off?

I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.

I'm really tired of people who don't take responsibility for their lives and actions I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.

I'm also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and early 20's bedeck themselves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making themselves un-employable and claiming money from the Government.

Yes, I'm damn tired. But I'm also glad to be 74.. Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my granddaughter and her children. Thank God I'm on the way out and not on the way in.

There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!

This is your chance to make a difference.
" I'm 74 and I'm tired.

Little Inspirational thought of the Day

Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday. For those of us that work that whole 9 to 5 boring 5 day (Monday thru Friday) work schedule, just think, only 24 more work hours until the weekend LOL. I am in an awesome mood tonight. I love my bowling leagues but haven't been bowling up to par recently :-(. I bowled my first 600 set of the season tonight so I am super excited and wound up tonight :-)

It's amazing how changing just a few people and things in your life and your whole life can become so much more positive and the effects of that positive nature just has a total affect on your whole life :-) A friend of mine posted the below quote on her facebook tonight and I just found it so true so going to steal it and repost it :-) Well not really steal because she would never mind that I reposted to inspire others Happy Tuesday all

"Immaturity is figuring out how to Hurt/Punish the other person instead of thinking of ways to make it better or trying to move past it"

How true is that?

A Little Inspiration for a Manic Monday

After an awful monday at the office, I love to come home and see some inspirational quotes. I like to find quotes that really bring some meaning to my own life

Hope everyone is having a relaxing halloween night

A quote that really boosted my spirts today

When you’ve lived my Life, Suffered my pain, Enjoyed my happiness, Walked in my shoes, Experienced what I’ve seen…only then judge me

(Just a little inspirational thought for the day- For everyone that is so quick to judge others :-) Happy Thursday

For those that read my story previously in my blog than you know just why that quote can easily lift me up. The experiences, pains, joys and the walk through your past can easily make you decide the person that you wish to be. You never become that person though unless you take the actions to make your life what you really want it to be

Daily Inpiration Quote to Fight the Monday Blues

The only one who is responsible for the way your life works out is you. You cannot change the past, but you can take responsibility for your future. All it takes is a decision. Decide to live a life of discipline rather than one of regret. Remember that discipline weighs ounces and regret weighs tons

I love this quote. It so fits my own life

Have a great week all. For once, Monday wasn't a stressful day at the office so hopefully, that is a sign that this week is going to be a good week. I like to be the optimist as opposed to the pessimist

How can a woman harm her own daughter?

OK- so I've always talk about how my daughter is the main inspiration in my life. She is my motivational inspiration in everything I do. I just love her so much. I have been following this whole Casey Anthony story (as I am sure most people have. Do I think she did it? A huge part of me does. Do I have doubt? Some. Maybe that's because I just can't comprehend how someone could do that to their daughter, put their body in a trash bag and go out and live their life. It is just something that I can't wrap my mind around. Did she really drown in the pool? Part of me has to believe in that theory. Everyone reacts to grief and shock in different ways. I know if I found my daughter drown in a pool, I would freak out. Scream and Cry but I would call the police. That would be the logical thing to do but how many people in this world nowadays actually think logically? Did she think everyone would think she did it and than she tried to hide it (which explains why her daughter was buried with her favorite items) or did she kill her and that was her way of showing remorse? I had a bad feeling when the prosecution went immediately for the death penalty. In order to get the death penalty, they had to have 100% proof almost. There were way too many factors that just didn't prove exactly how the baby died? Was she suffocated or did she drown? What do you think?

I guess no matter what people think, Casey Anthony has walked free (well not really free because she will never really be free in society) She will always be prosecuted by her peers.

Another thing that I had a huge problem understanding is how parents could bring their children to the jail when Casey was being released. Nobody knew how that was going to go down. There could have been riots, gunshots, fights etc. In my mind, those parents should also judge themselves as I would have never, ever put my most prized possession (my daughter) in that danger. If someone's child got hurt or even worse killed in that, would the parents have been held responsible for the child's injuries or death for putting them in that situation (a situation that could have very easily turned deadly :-( Thank God that it didn't.

I know people are now saying that if Casey Anthony writes a book or makes a movie, they wouldn't read it or see it. Honesty, I would (as would alot of other people) Why? Because we are a curious beast and we would want to see what it said.

I only hope that if Casey Anthony did indeed kill her child, she suffers the punishment (but not by human hands- but by god and society shunning her). If she didn't kill her and that baby truly drowned than part of my heart goes out to her because I know everyone goes into shock after something like that. I don't agree with the way she acted but I don't think anyone knows how they would truly react unless placed into that position.
What are your views on the Casey Anthony case?

Inspiration for the Day







We all need to be constantly sharpened. This parable may encourage you to know that you are a special person, with unique God-given talents and abilities. Only you can fulfill the purpose which you were born to accomplish. Never allow yourself to get discouraged and think that your life is insignificant and cannot be changed and, like the pencil, always remember that the most important part of who you are, is what's inside of you and then allow yourself to be guided by the hand of God.

Very True Statement (That describes me)

I AM A HANDFUL - Strong willed, independent, a bit outspoken. I tell it like it is. I make mistakes, I am sometimes out of control and at times hard to handle but I love and give with all my heart. If you can't handle me at my worst then you sure don't deserve me at my best.

A friend of mine posted on facebook and I just loved it because it just describes "ME" :-)

Just a little life motivation

One thing that I look forward to everyday is reading my joke forwards and inspirational forwards that I receive in my emails :-)
Here is one that I got today that I feel just sums life up and holds a lot of truth witin it
Enjoy (as i did :-)

As I've aged, I've become kinder to myself, and less critical of myself. I've become my own friend..

I have seen too many dear friends leave this world too soon; before they understood the great freedom that comes with aging.

Whose business is it if I choose to read or play on the computer until 4 AM or sleep until noon? I will dance with myself to those wonderful tunes of the 60 &70's, and if I, at the same time, wish to weep over a lost love .. I will.
I will walk the beach in a swim suit that is stretched over a bulging body, and will dive into the waves with abandon if I choose to, despite the pitying glances from the jet set.

They, too, will get old.
I know I am sometimes forgetful. But there again, some of life is just as well forgotten. And I eventually remember the important things.

Sure, over the years my heart has been broken. How can your heart not break when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when somebody's beloved pet gets hit by a car? But broken hearts are what give us strength and understanding and compassion. A heart never broken is pristine and sterile and will never know the joy of being imperfect.

I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have my hair turning gray, and to have my youthful laughs be forever etched into deep grooves on my face.
So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their hair could turn silver.
As you get older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about what other people think. I don't question myself anymore..
I've even earned the right to be wrong.

So, to answer your question, I like being old. It has set me free. I like the person I have become. I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be. And I shall eat dessert every single day(if I feel like it).

the life of an 89 year old

OK so I am stuggling terribly tonight. My 89 year old boss (who has been like a grandmother/mentor to me) finds out today that she has colon cancer. She has surgery tomorrow and may or may not make it through. I'm devestated. I can't imagine my life without her. She has been my biggest mentor in life ever. I can't go into detail with that right now because I am so upset and typing this through tears.. Just pray for her with me tomorrow. She can't leave me yet. She has made me s damn strong and is the strongest, toughest woman I know. She is my role model I just can't lose her :-((((((

Life in a nutshell

So was just skimming facebook this evening and saw a post from a friend of mine. I just thought it was a nice inspirational thought for the day so just thought I would repost

It's hard to grasp that one day I'll look back as a wrinkled up old lady & think that my life will shortly be over, but when I do I'll be looking back at all the fond memories with the most wonderful people I could have asked for in life. I know I won't regret one single moment, I have so many people & memories that I'll cherish forever and a day ( life is a gift don't waste a single moment)!

Happy Tuesday

Is there a such thing as the perfect life??

I think for so long, I have longed for the perfect life. I think this is why it took me so long in my adult life to allow myself to just be happy. Live in the "Now" and be happy. I was always seeking perfection (In my looks, my career, my family etc) I could never rest and relax because I was striving for perfection so much that I always felt anxious.
It took me a long time to realize that I had to stop living for the future and just live for today.
Focus on the present and make your time and life better now rather than always working towards tomorrow.
Honestly, how do you even know there will be a tomorrow? LIVE NOW.

and that is my inspiration to start this coming week off the right way.

Mean Girls!!! Do females outgrow that stage?

Hello- Hope everyone is having an awesome 2011 so far.
I am!! (well to a certain degree)
I watched mean girls 2 tonight with my 12 year old. The more I discover my true self- the more I realize females sometimes never outgrow this stage. The movie is based on teenage girls and how harsh they can be towards other females. I am at a certain stage in my life that in order to be happy, unfortunately, I need to cut negativity out of my life to a certain degree. I am 34 and I realize just how much some of my friends and family act just like these mean girls. The sad part is that in adults, it is a more sneaky type of attack in females.
Nice to your face, than you turn your back and the knife is stabbed in.

There is a saying that you go through your whole life and by the end of it, you will be able to count your true friends on one hand. The truth in that statement is scary.

I am so tired of phony, fake and downright ignorant females. The healthier I get mentally, the more I see just how evil some people can really be :-(

so it is time to take steps away from that negativity. Some females just never seem to grow up and by giving in to them for so many years, It emotionally drained me. I am happier when I avoid them. Although it does hurt when you feel like you give to people and search for that acceptance and than you come to realize that they just use you anyway.

On another note, my marriage is doing great :-) My daughter is doing wonderful. My mom is getting healthier and I am getting emotionally stronger with each passing day so life is good

I have been slacking a bit on my blog and I am sorry for that. Everyday is a new journey in life :-)

Talk to you soon
