Same Story Second Verse

If I met you in aisle seven of the dollar store next to the shampoo and conditioner….

…I’d tell you a story.

I can’t help it.

I live my life in stories.

This blog is full of them.  They are the unsung heroes of the blog.  Dozens and dozens and dozens of stories that I write down and then forget all about.  They live on the pages of the blog, tucked away back in 2014 on a page no remembers about just waiting for the day someone discovers them.

Today is their lucky day.

Pinterest is full of quotes about finding yourself and finding who you are and knowing your own path.

Quotes like “Some people get lost for so long they forget how to find themselves.”

And  “Lose yourself in the things you love and it is there you will find who you are.”

And my favorite “Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come.”

Wonderful, sage, incredible, amazing advice.   I know.  I get it.  I understand.  There are days when I feel like I need to have some of these quotes written on my hand so I remember the importance of just being myself.

But this week I discovered that  I really didn’t need Pinterest or quotes or wise advice from others.

I have a middle school daughter.Continue reading

Is it hard?

Is it overwhelming and are they different and how do you handle it and is it really a challenge?

And I always tell them it’s double.

Double the joy, double the work, double the responsibilities, double the drama…..

…..and double the blessings.Continue reading

Words That Make You Go Hmmm

Words That Make You Go Hmmm

 
Words that make you go hmmmm

Every day we are adding words into the English language.

Trying to keep up with what people are saying and how they are saying it and what it all even means can be a little overwhelming.

Just ask Webster.

Here’s a few examples to try to work into your vocabulary if you want to sit at the cool table at lunch.

“On fleek” meaning on point, perfect.

As in “Girl….your eyebrows are amazing….they are so on fleek.”

“Obvi” meaning short for obvious.

As in “Your hair looks incredible.”

Obvi.

“Humblebrag” meaning trying to sound like you aren’t really all about yourself when the entire point of your statement is to point out how awesome you are in conversation.

As in “I think I need to get a hobby.  I just have too much time on my hands and I’m so organized and it’s totally embarrassing that my house is so perfect and picked up all the time.”

(Sounds like humblebrag to me). 🙂Continue reading
