Happy 1st day of a new month! I posted this picture on my Instagram page with the message: Focus on the good, set your intentions, and do your best. My focus this month is going to be on being thoughtful. Often times it feels like we easily fall into the trap of complaining, criticizing, and… Continue reading Chapter 2 of 12
As I was walking our youngest in her stroller to get her to fall asleep for nap time and our oldest rode her bike alongside us, I smiled as I saw the clouds part and the bright sun spread its warmth on me. Then I felt the slightest little tingle of fear of the unknown.… Continue reading My 2017 Focus: Intention
Last year my husband and I kept saying we wanted to write a list of goals that we wanted to accomplish but never got around to it. Plus with me in school and then switching jobs, it left little room for us to really sit down and plan out any vacations so we would often just do… Continue reading 2014: Live it with Intention!
I remember June 1993 at Santa Ana Edison Field so clearly…I just don’t remember the exact calendar day. But I do remember how excited I felt to be surrounded by so many of my fellow Saddleback High School seniors and standing in line as we were preparing to enter the field and start our graduation… Continue reading My 20 Year Journey
Do you remember those days in school or college when the professor would tell you that her/his tests are multiple choice and essay questions and nearly all the students would breathe a sigh of relief (and nearly cheer) at the words “multiple choice”?

I’ve been neglecting my blog for some time, and when I do get on here it’s usually very sporadic. I think once it had even been close to two months (if not… Continue reading Disconnected
Not too long ago I had posted about being inspired by a post of one of my fellow bloggers to apply for a scholarship that was being offered for the Sociology Department at my school, California State University – Long Beach. I heard back from them a few days ago and as it turns out… Continue reading Against All Odds
My husband and I are planning on making a list of the goals we have in mind for this year so that we have a better idea of what we want to accomplish. I think this is great because it’s nice to have a little road map in life. It doesn’t mean we’re going to follow it… Continue reading I’m excited, I’m inspired, Cheers to Writing!
Last night I snapped these pictures of Biggie (our bulldog) and couldn’t wait to share them. It cracks me up every time that Biggie tries this because despite being too short that doesn’t stop him from atleast attempting to reach what’s on the counter. Sometimes if it’s a scent he’s particularly intrigued by he’ll even… Continue reading Lessons in Persistence and Doing Your Best
I was about to start some homework and remembered I hadn’t posted yet today. I got some really exciting news at school after visiting my advisor, I found out that if I stay on track with four classes per semester I could possibly graduate in Spring 2012! It’s so awesome to think that graduation day is… Continue reading Graduation Is Closer Than I Expected
