As a parent, we do our best to raise our kids to be decent individuals. Even though there are tons of books on parenting, it’s just a role that you have to learn once your in it.
Some of the biggest mistakes that parents make is set the idea of who their child is in their heads versus learning who their child really is. Parents can have the thought that their child will get high marks in school like they did or become that all-star athlete like they were and it’s not fair. Parents also raise their children to be a certain way, obtain certain values and when that child goes astray, we sit and wonder “why?”.
Please do not take this post as me saying that we can’t set rules and the tone for the upbringing of our children. My point is that a certain point in the adolescent/young adult stage, we need to communicate with our kids. We need to understand their voice, likes/dislikes, how they see the world and thoughts about love, etc. Once this happens, your son or daughter will present their true selves to you. It doesn’t mean we have to agree or even like it, but we do have to show Respect to them.

Is by Listening.
We constantly want to talk or talk over people but rarely do many just sit back and listen.
When we listen, we learn and observe from the one speaking. Think about it.. in a class room you are able to receive the information if you are being quiet. In a relationship of any sort, you would only know a person’s view by listening to them. Even when we are doing some soul searching, we listen to that inner voice for peace.
Do you listen or only hear when someone talks? By listening, you can receive knowledge, opportunities for growth and much more.
I, too, am learning the importance of Learning through Listening and I hope you do the same.
Thanks for reading,

How many of us really can say we took the time to let a friendship blossom before wanting the Romance with a significant other?
Take a moment to let that Sink in.
Significant other…. What makes them Significant? Best friend(s)… why are they the Best? We don’t take enough time in these categories, especially when it comes to romance. Don’t get me wrong, nothing is wrong with getting swept off your feet, or feeling it was love at first sight because for many that is their love story. Like anything in life, plant the seed, nurture it and watch the growth that takes place.
Has this been you? Have you been haste to enter a romantic relationship and then it failed abruptly? Were you friends? Let me know your thoughts friends!Thanks for reading!

Hey great people,
Happy Monday to you! After having a conversation with the hubby, I’ve been really considering my position in life currently. Like you, I too, have many hopes and ambition. I catch myself saying “32 is around the corner”, constantly. I’m also thinking, “age is a number” the value of knowledge to gain is more important.
So, “age is a state of mind baby” will be my go to Motto. Lol. As long as we are given another chance at life, we have time to grow and improve.
Take care peeps! Thanks for reading

No matter what it is. Faith practice, romantic relationships, friendships, or jobs etc. When it comes down to it, it’s only a title and titles can change. However, a relationship can develop and grow over time. Think about it. Have a blessed one friends

Hey all, Happy Monday!
Today’s topic is: do you invest in yourself?
We all have dreams and goals that we would like to meet but do we invest in ourselves to achieve this? This can be career goals, finances, relationships or just personal maintenance.
Why should we invest in ourselves? It creates positivity and growth. For example, if you are working to become an entrepreneur, investing in yourself would be attending workshops or seminars. When a person attends workshops and seminars, they are amongst others who are trying meet the same goal, you have networking opportunities and the ability to learn from those who are experienced in your skill. Those are all positive things to help guide your way to success.
When you invest in yourself, you become a better you. People will see your confidence and believe in your dream as well. We all have skills and by investing in ourselves, we are taking our skills from good to Great!
You can do it friends, I believe in you.
On behalf of your children who are adults and/or have become parents ourselves… Thank you.
We didn’t realize as a child how much you loved us but we do now. At times when you were sick or extremely tired, you still managed to do everything without a question. There are times when you need a break from us but can’t because we need your support to carry out our lives and unfortunately we were to ignorant to say thank you.
We didn’t realize that your complaining and nagging was to teach us to do better than the mistakes you made. We didn’t realize just how worried we made you when we did things we had no business doing. We also didn’t realize how mean we could be when we said hurtful things and how you may have cried about it behind closed doors.
It’s now that as an adult, now as a parent, we KNOW just how much you Love us.
So, mommas who feel unappreciated, or that your good deeds are done in vain, please don’t. A lot of us knucklehead kids just take a bit longer to realize it. We love you, we thank you.
