    Word Of The Week: Kindness

    This week, my focus is on kindness. The funny part is, it’s been the one word I’ve been thinking about since before the year started. I’ll get into more detail about this in an upcoming post.  Kindness comes naturally for some of us, but not for everyone. Personally, I think it has to do with your upbringing. The things you’ve been exposed to can really make you heartless. It is up to us to make a change in our lives.  I hope you can join me this week in discussing kindness.

    Trusting Yourself

    One of the most valuable lessons I’ve ever learned after becoming a parent has been to trust myself.  You can really drive yourself insane by searching on Google for every little thing you come across as a parent.  After my son turned one I gave up panicking about the slightest things. It was like a gift to myself: No more acting like psycho Tima.  Of course, I couldn’t do it without a pep talk from his godmother and my long-time friend, Meli. She’s always been known to slap some sense into me. Learning The Ropes I know it only seems easier than it really is, but there are times I just…

    Word Of The Week: Trust

    It’s time to celebrate another wonderful week, and I’m really excited for all the great things that are to come.  For this week, my focus will be on the word trust.

This week is going to be a good one. I can feel it.  I hope yours is as beautiful as you are.

    Changes Aren't Always Welcomed

    Going through several changes all at once can drive you mad.  And sometimes the madness can lead you to question things in your life, like the love you have for yourself.  Or worse, the love of those around you.  Overcoming Negative Thoughts I’ve written a few posts on the changes I felt when we first moved to South Florida, and all the changes we went through as a family. But I never mentioned something I held dear to me until recently.  After becoming a SAHM, I felt as though I relied heavily on Jeff. I never saw this new life as something that could benefit us both.  For me, being…

    Word Of The Week: Love

    It’s no coincidence that this week I’ll be focusing on the word love. No, it won’t be about sappy love stories, I promise!  Love can be found in many ways, not just in the love between two people. It can be the love you feel for a place, a group of friends or even a pet.  And this week, I’ll be exploring the different ones I’ve experienced throughout the years.  I hope you join me as I share my heart with you all week long.   May your day be as lovely as you are.
