What do you know about who is speaking to your children? Does it matter?

This past weekend, some serious allegations were brought to light regarding a group (more specifically the group’s co-founder) who was scheduled to visit several high schools in my area next month. The result was the co-founder, who was also one of the lead speakers, resigning. I’m guessing he resigned because his past has been highly publicized in the last several weeks causing major uproar and because his current published writing is viewed by some as über controversial, damaging, and inappropriate.

My daughters liked hard shell tacos, my husband liked the mix in a soft tortilla, and I enjoyed mine out of a bowl. I added Pico de Gallo salsa and chips to my bowl. So good!

After the dish has finished cooking, you can embellish with avocado, sour cream, salsa, jalapeno, habenaro, green onions, black olives, cheese, hot sauce, or whatever else you love. More

Taking Time to Live in the Moment

I’ll admit it. I haven’t taken my own advice lately. I’m rushing here and there trying to get everything done before Christmas. There are too many other things stressing me out as well, but you don’t want to hear about all that stuff and that’s life for everyone anyway. The point is that I’ve over extended my brain and body, and I’m feeling the wear and tear of it all. I let myself get here.

Last night I reached the fork in the road where I could completely freak out or just let the stress go. I’m taking back control right now by letting go. The alternative is out of the question. I’ve made up my mind, and I can actually feel my shoulders relaxing as I write this. Seriously! More

When people ask, “What do you do”, I feel confused about how to answer that question. Sometimes I want to say that I’m a writer, editor, or an artist of sorts, but then I think just because some of my writing and edited material has been published doesn’t necessarily make me a “professional”, so I feel like I’m kind of stretching the truth if I say that I am a writer.

Hmm…what do I do for a living? I’ll tell you what I do…

I listen to my inner voice, follow my own unique path, pay attention to my surroundings, connect with an eclectic mix of people, and see where that all takes me.

Is that an acceptable answer? More
