Neither here nor there

Good morning! It's been a while since I've felt inspired to write anything here in this little corner of cyberspace.  
So much has happened already and it's only March.  

Let me start by saying I haven't felt so blessed in my life.  Sounds better if I say "I've been so blessed".  Things are looking up, maybe I'm just excited of going at a different pace.  My girls are happy, we're all happy and striving to be better, learn more, love more, explore more in 2016.  

Change isn't easy, it's not very attractive when we hear about it and hiding under the blankets and letting things happen might sound like a better option, at least one that sometimes works for me.  

Have you ever felt like "things will just work out" no need to change?  Well we must take a leap of faith, tweak a few things here and there, step out of our comfort zone and just go with it.  See where life takes you, more importantly see where God wants you to be.  

Rambling on here, stay with me.  Here's a few things that I feel make me "me" or things I go by or believe in. 

1.  Surround yourself with positive likeminded individuals. 

2.  I've learned to let go of my insecurities, I know I'm enough, I know I'm loved.  I know I'm not everyone's cup of tea and I'm ok with that.

3.  I have learned that I'm not always going to like every cup of tea there is either, and this goes back to number 1, surround yourself with those who lift you, inspire you, won't judge you and return the favor I've been great at being their cheerleaders as well.  I love to support their ideas, their goals, their dreams, genuinely and wholeheartedly I'm all ears.  

4. Mmm 3 was too long, what's 4? 
Oh yes I've learned over the years, not to take myself too serious.  If I've made a mistake, I try to look at the positives, learn from it and move on. 

5.  I'm not a high maintenance person, when something isn't going my way, my foundation is too dark, my eyebrows are not groomed (lol!), the bus left me, traffic is horrendous, the lady on the bus next to me is talking so loud on her cell in a foreign language, I spilled coffee on myself, I scuffed my shoes, these things that you might get so annoyed with don't seem so big in the grand scheme of things, in fact things like this don't matter at all.  Because in all honestly no one gives a flying F if you have coffee stains, if you look tanned, no one sees the scuff mark on your shoes, the bus left me oh well, there will be another one coming... The list goes on.  But yeah back to this point, no one cares about the things you take so serious.  So I've learned to take a chill pill and sit back and take one day at a time. 

6.  This could be an extension of part # 5
Be quick to adapt, be quick to make decisions on the fly, you have to, sometimes you can't sit and fester with things in your mind.  Use your best judgment, make a choice and move on. 

7.  I've learned to love myself, accept myself, my faults, my weaknesses, my strengths all of me, because God made me just the way He wanted me to be.  There's one of me.  I love me! Thank you Jesus! 

8.  I've learned being a wife and a mom isn't easy, but I'll die trying to be the best I can.  This stuff doesn't come with a manual and at times I feel so far from being a good mom and a good wife.  But making purposeful my goal rather than perfect keeps me sane.  

No time for 9 & 10....  Gotta get off this bus! 

Have a great day! Kisses
