Tune out the Crap

This was suppose to be my post for Wednesday, somehow it didn't go through, regardless I think it still can be useful...

Today's post will be slightly brief, or at least brief for me. Why? Well today is my daughter's nineteenth (19) Birth Day. I choose to invest my time today on her, on me, on us.

I will though leave you with some food for thought.

Why are so many mom's blogging about celebrities and their lives, their adventures or their misfortunes?

Why are so many moms period in the grocery store, in the park, in the Salon or in their homes fixated on conversations on people that have no idea they exist?

For those who complain or whine about not having time, of course you don't because you are too busy wasting time on someone else's crap.

Put down that magazine, get off the gossip sites, turn off the television.

Invest your time on you.

Our thoughts are what make us, build us, guide us into becoming something or someone greater. They allow dreams to come true, life to be lived to its full potential if we allow it.
Thoughts especially positive ones help us to heal, to learn, to accept and to change.

When you sit around and dwell in someone else's space you are neglecting your own.

Go out and make today an amazing day about you and those you love.

As always stress free living while I actually Live Love & Laugh xoxo

I have these two (2) books in my library, excellent reads and time well invested in myself, maybe you can pick up a great book too!!!

What do you think?


  1. Hate to say this but it is much easier to focus on other things and not yourself. The reason I say that is because when you focus on you, you might see things you don't like and you are unwilling to change.

    Change is a scary thing for most. A lot of people don't want to change because they are afraid that the people who are currently around them may leave them.

    About 13 years I decided to focus on me (right when my divorce started) and it was the right decision. I lost some friends and such but I have become a better person, made better friends but more important became a better parent to my kids. That is much more important thing.

    1. Patrick, as always hello welcome and thanks for comments. As someone who has done major changes in last six years I will say with confidence you didn't loose friends or anyone or anything for that matter. You just made room for things that would add to your life not take away. True friends don't go away because you make changes, true friends stick around BECAUSE you made changes. Have great day :)

  2. A great read, glad this was my opening back into my blog world I have neglected for so long. So much has happened to me in the last few months and so much more to achieve, I keep telling myself I am so tired by the end of the day that I have no time for anything. But you are so right, not that I didn't already know this but I choose to push it aside and focus on the lazy thoughts of being "too tired".

    Hope all is well with you my friend.

    1. Camii welcome back and thank you xo, looking forward to your return to writing!!!
