Clean Up In 30 Seconds

You may think I’m crazy but stick with me through this idea. To clean up in 30 seconds may seem like too short of a time to do anything at all. It isn’t a lot of time, it really isn’t, but that is the point of this article. The point is to set up something […]

Do What You Want, What You Really Want

You know those days when you look up and realize it’s gone by so fast and you feel like you haven’t accomplished anything?  I try really hard to avoid those days.  Living life to the fullest, with no regrets is my goal every. single. day.  Whether that means turning all of my attention to my […]

Raising Kids IS Happiness

If you are expecting me to sympathize with you because it’s hard to raise kids… If you are expecting me to show you how to raise the perfect child… If you are expecting me to give you a time schedule to have an hour of relaxation while the children are being their perfect selves… If […]

The First 5 Minutes of Your Day Defines Your Attitude

We all know that how we start our day sets the mood for the rest of our day so why aren’t we better at it?  It doesn’t take long, just the first 5 minutes of your day, to define your attitude for the better.  Make the most of your day by showing love to the […]

Adjust Your Mindset To Get More ME Time

This may seem too simple, but adjusting your mindset to get more ME time really does work!  Time is a measurable thing but your feeling of time is not.  When you feel like you have more ME time, you do.  It’s as simple (and complicated) as that. Don’t worry, I am not going to get […]

Family Rule:Do Only What Makes You Happy

This family rule may seem selfish and childish on the surface but it gets deep. Let me explain. Do only what makes you happy is a view for our future. Children do what feels good in the moment but doing what makes you happy helps you to think of the future. Will this truly make […]

Be Who You Are, But The Best Version

Be who you are, but the best version of you is probably my favorite family rule. Children should know that there will come a time, many times actually, they will have to make a decision in their lives. At that moment they will have to decide what kind of person they want to be. Knowing […]

You Will Always Regret Something You Never Try

This Family Rule is the basis of all success stories you ever hear.  You will always regret something you never try rather than something you tried and failed.  This is true for big and small risks.  Talking to that girl you like in school may seem like a big risk at the time.  If you […]

Family Rule: Accept Everyone For Who They Are

This family rule is a protection of yourself as well as an embrace of other people’s differences. I am not talking about accepting someone’s race, sex, or religious beliefs, that stuff doesn’t make a difference to me and when I show my children that you can be friends with everyone and anyone, they will learn […]
