It can be so fun going through your child’s bedroom when it has been years between dejunking and rearranging! My son and I have been doing this this afternoon and there have been some really funny drawings and fun things he has forgotten about.
We have lived in the same house since 2006, so the whole thing is getting a dejunking job. It’s funny how things that you used to think you needed now look like ‘what the heck did I keep this for’. Now, in my defense, most of the years in this house have been spent with me being sick with late-stage Lyme disease. Time has not been the same to me as it has to other people.
The best we we can do is the best we can do and that is the best we can do😉
Each of us only has 24 hours in a day and it is hard to be balanced as it is. I’ve made a priority of physical activity and chipping away at things that need to be done around the house.
However, I have been also working 6-8 hours a day on social media and preparing for posts, etc. That takes up a good portion of my productive day. While building this business, I must be consistent in this to keep my followers and to get discovered by followers and businesses alike.
All of this whole taking care of day-to-day for my household and trying to improve my health. At the same time, I am striving to learn and develop in certain areas so there is daily study as well.
In other words, I am just like you. Striving for balance. Trying to get as close to perfection as I can. Trying to make headway. Not always doing great at everything but alway trying to improve.
Life can and should be extraordinary. Because I am making up for lost time, I am but a fledgling in getting my career going and my home in order. But, what I have learned along the way has made the experience that much more sweet and rewarding.
I think I must live in my own little heaven on earth. I know what goes on outside of my own home (in the rest of the world), but within my home, we all get along and support one another. No, I don't take it for granted. There was a good portion of my life spent in a lack of peace. Knowing how blessed I am, I see a need for compassion on a global scale...something that is lacking.
I made a comment on a friend's profile on Facebook about one of the hot button issues that she had incorrect information about. The discussion started and soon there was a thread. One person in the thread brought up as "fact" something that a celebrity had been posting on their social media about this issue. We cannot get facts from our own government, from media, from our neighbors. How do we think we are getting facts from celebrities?
Things can be so frustrating because they are so confusing! I used to be really involved in current events...really involved. Then, after years of blogging about current events, finding all kinds of holes in stories being reported, and finally realizing that there were agendas to EVERYTHING, I stepped aside. I prefer a life of peace. I still learn and stay aware, but I prefer a life of peace. I don't want to be a pawn in someone else's chess game.
I send love out to all of you who read this. It is important. It's super important. Love one another. The world can change for the better if we just love one another. It starts in our homes. Set an atmosphere of love in your home and you will find it radiates outward into everything you do.
So the big buzz online today is the announcement of a Space Force. That is a group of the US military that is separate that is focused on space. Cool, eh?! Not that there wasn't already work being done in that area. My thoughts on it are that we have been doing this for quite some time, but that the public was not yet thought ready to receive the news. What are your thoughts on this?
Of course, in my little corner of this giant blue marble we live on, there was nothing quite as eventful...other than the BEST DAY of the week! 'What's that?', you say? Clean sheet day, of course. Now, if I can just wind down enough to enjoy those sheets, that would be amazing;)
oh for the love of Fathers!
My stepfather has been such a generous man. He is a man that loves his family. He is a giver and not a taker. He is someone respectable. What a great example to my siblings and I who had not had that while growing up.
The main father that I really want to thank and celebrate is my husband, Steve. He is such an example of good character. He is kind. He is nurturing. He took care of our kids while I was sick with late-stage Lyme. He takes care of me with unconditional love. He supports us monetary, but also emotionally, intellectually, physically, etc.
He is amazing and he is my husband ❤️
Preparing for Father’s Day, I got a little off track with timing on my blog.
I got busy going out for last minute errands and taking care of regular Saturday chores.
We just finished dinner and I’m taking a moment to blog before I am off to the store for a few more things for dinner tomorrow.
I hope that you all have a really wonderful evening.

...of the week, that is.
Time to figure out what to do for the weekend.
Will your weekend be a fun waste of time or a boring line of tasks?
Happy weekend arrival everyone. Find a way to enjoy.
The statement above really does reflect my humor. I’m just a happy dork on a mission to help others become happy dorks.
It feeds my soul to make other people smile and laugh. On the outside, I am a very lighthearted person. I love laughter. I don’t like worrisome or conflicting discussions. However, I am an extremely deep person...there is a constant conversation going on in my mind, constantly worrying, constantly debating, constantly planning the next steps.
I love to look on on the bright side of everything...to the point it probably gets annoying to other people, but I am fine with that😉.
When was the last time you laughed? When was the last time you had a genuine smile? This world needs more smiling and laughter. Give it a try. It’s good medicine.
Today was all UVU Jumpstart Orientation with my youngest. My son, myself and my husband spent 6 hours on campus, learning and touring. It was great!
It it seems that there are a million times more resources than there were when I went to college. Financial. Advising. Communication. Interaction with and participation with parents and family. Recreation. Etc. Etc.
This life goes by too fast. Why does it see that time is speeding up? Does it seem like that to you guys?
Take advantage of the time. Don’t let it take advantage of you. There are opportunities in every minute of every day. Look for the opportunities. They are there. Life is great!
Today an incident happened. The truck got locked, while on...keys inside, phone inside, etc. Hmmmm... husband clear up by capital, at work. I was down in Orem, taking my son to work. There was quite the distance. What to do? Called the Orem police department. They came right away and helped me. Bravo!
Mind you, it wasn’t anything that I did or didn’t do. My son drove us to his office and I was just getting out to move to the drivers side. In the process of him shutting the door and my opening my passenger side, the door locked and I didn’t see it happen.
Things happen. How you act/react matters. Did it change my day? Just put things in perspective. Life is full of things like this. If we show by example instead of teach through just talking the talk, our children will learn that there is no obstacle too high to get over.
Life does not have to be complicated.
It seems we run around like crazy people, chasing dreams of bigger and better lifestyles, skinnier figures, perfection according to social media standards,
Why do we care so much about STUFF?
Time me flies by so fast. We run like hamsters on a wheel. Just going round and round. Where is your destination? Have you chosen a final goal according to social media? OR have you chosen based on you...on your own gut... on your own means?
This is YOUR life. Don’t base it on the fake lives shown in social media. They are not real life.
