My friends and family say I’m… #ProjectPositive

My friends and family say I’m…. Crazy and Fun! When I’m around people I love it to be a fun time- I love making people smile and laugh. It’s not hard with my family and friends because most of them are just as crazy as I am, so whenever there’s a get together or party it’s sure to be a great time! I think that happiness and laughter truly is the key to life- if you have both in your life you are a rich person!

I have so many ideas running through my head about what I want to do- career wise. I’m just so indecisive. I’ve been an Esthetician for over 10 years and went back to school where I’ve earned my Associates in Criminal Investigation and Bachelors in Psychology and it’s now time to move on. I can’t figure out which path to take because each one is extremely different. I’d love to work towards becoming a substance abuse counselor- I really want to help those suffering with addiction (especially youth). Then there’s helping children with learning disabilities- I actually am still employed as a skills trainer but took a leave in order to finish my degree (which I did) but I’m not sure that I want to do that permanently, even though I did get a great deal of satisfaction with the progress that I’ve seen some of my student make. Now here’s where it gets weird… I really, really want to someday own my own sweets shop! I want to have my own bakery/ candy shop. It just seems like the most fun thing in the world to me- being able to put smiles on faces every time you provide them with a yummy treat. This is the one that is on the top of my list. I just don’t know if it’s actually the “right” thing to do being that I did rack up sooo much in student loans- to not do something with my degree makes me feel yucky inside. Ugh! What to do what to do? I’m a huge believer that the solution will present itself- but I’ve been waiting and haven’t received anything yet. I’d love to hear your advice, if you have any for me. I’m obviously stuck.

Nothing interesting to post… but here’s my BBQ Playlist :)

I really have nothing to post about today. Usually my Monday posts will consist of pics of the weekend- this weekend I took none. I also did exactly what I did last weekend (football games)- so nothing really exciting or new to talk about there. Ugh, I just hate when there’s nothing interesting to share. So I decided to make a playlist for you all. Here’s the playlist that we listened to last night while BBQ-ing- Reggae/ Hawaiian Reggae. Enjoy!

The most valuable thing I’ve learned… #projectpositive

The most valuable thing that I’ve learned is to always make those you love feel that they are loved. You never know what tomorrow will bring you so it is so important that you treat every day as if it’s your last- let your family, friends and especially your children feel that up until your last moment you loved and valued them. There are times when I am frustrated with my children but in those moments I will make sure that before we part ways or go to sleep they will get a kiss, hug and an “I love you” from me.

I love my body because… #ProjectPositive day2

I love my body because I birthed 3 amazing human beings.  A woman’s body is an extraordinary thing that creates life!  I respect my body and love myself because I know that each of my children shared that little space within it :)
