You Are Special So Follow Those Dreams!


That's right REMEBER THE ABOVE! But seriously I am writing this because of the amount of shaming that goes on.  I am not even talking Mom shaming which is a horrible thing as it is but I am talking shaming in many different aspects. I am actively pursuing my writing and crafting, My Ex is constantly telling me as well as having our teens and his mom saying that I will never make it that it's just a dream that I shouldn't pursue.  Well, I say bull dung to that. My sister-in-law Pam used to joke with me that I should open a food truck that sold nothing but cookies, milk, coffee, and tea. To be honest I have considered it on and off for about six months but then decided I liked my writing and crafting a bit more than baking twenty-four seven. 

I am a firm believer in following my dreams and I am doing my best to pursue them regardless of what kind of negative comments I get.  Am I saying no I will not get a real job to support my children and myself of course not! I know I have children to care for but with careful planning and juggling, I believe I can keep all the balls in the air until I succeed in my dreams.  That is why I am becoming an advocate of following your dreams and reaching your life goal! I already self-published two books and I am working on a new one as well which if all goes well will be published on Amazon by the end of July!  Would I succeed in what I am doing if I listened to the naysayers in my life? I think not.

So my encouragement to everyone else believe in yourself and do what you think is right in your life. Take those first few baby steps and follow your dreams because the only person who is holding you back is yourself.  At the end of the day, the person you have to answer to for all your unrealized dreams is yourself. So look in that mirror give yourself the pep talk you need and work on your goals!  Now I am not saying quit your job to be a wood carver, but taking an hour or two a day to devote to your projects are an amazing thing if you are truly serious about it! Want to sell your wares post them on your local community sell site.  There is always a yes out there depending on how dedicated you are to your goals.

I hope as short as this is that maybe I lifted someones spirit and believe me when I say you are not alone we believe in you! There are moms and dads out there struggling with the want and need to pursue their goals.

Blessings and Love,
Angie

Why I Am Okay With Being Single!

So time to speak my mind! Be ready to be offended! However, I think people take the challenge as matchmaker a little too seriously. Now do not get me wrong, I might have chosen wrong for myself, however, my setup rate for others was pretty damn good. I just did one thing that most people who want to play matchmaker never stop to consider. Is the person I am trying to set up ready for a relationship? Or more importantly, do they want to enter the dating pool again? Dating is scary. Why might I be taking a stand on this subject? Funny you should ask. I was informed a few times in the last few weeks that I should start dating. When I asked why, the answer made me laugh. Well, don't you think it's time you got back out there? Don't you want to be with someone. I saw red. I know I am not ready to date again. Is it because I am still in love with my soon to be ex-husband? Um, no. I would ask anyone who reads this that if I took that trip to stupid town to drag me back to s
