    Politics and Hate – My Opinion

    Politics! Good grief! I am so sick of this. I think many Americans are. The news, the tweets, the memes, and the current election. What gets to me most is how rude, mean, aggressive, hypocritical, and just plain jerky people can be! Why be that way? There are people strongly supporting the president who consider themselves ‘conservatives’ and this president is anything but conservative. And conservatives state they are strong Christians yet they blast and smear those who do not agree with them. THAT is not proper Christian behavior. I’m not saying it is everyone and I try not to group all as one.  I have seen many that have been…

    Disobedient Kids – My Opinion

    You laugh when your child screams in the store, not out of embarrassment but because you find it funny. You constantly repeat the name of the child to make them stop but even with you constantly repeating the name the child continues and now we have to listen to you too! Your child takes others toys and you feel they should share and not make your child cry. Your child throws a tantrum and you give in so your child is not hurt or upset. Control your child!  Whether it’s your child, a grandchild, niece, nephew, or what have you. These kids are running a muck and we are so…

    The Moment – My Opinion

    Every moment counts! Our lives are based on each moment. They all have brought you to where you are now and they will continue to carry you on for the rest of your life. You will have good moments and bad. Appreciate them all.  It’s crazy how one moment of time can completely change your course of life. You can be happy and celebrating a special occasion only to instantly have terrible news arrive that totally changes your life forever with deep pain. Or you can be in a state of despair and feeling there is no end to hardship or grief when suddenly great news has been delivered that…

    The Party Dilemma – My Opinion

    Why has it become so difficult with inviting and accepting invitations? It seems that in the last few years it has come up in many conversations and so much is being put into this, and not in a good way. I have heard many forms of complaints on invitations. I have experienced problems with invitations and cancellations. I have seen Facebook memes about invitations. It seems that so many people are upset with each other about being invited to or not showing up to an invite.  “Why should I invite them if they never show up?”  “They never invite me so why should I invite them?”  “They will get mad…

    Disney and Life – My Opinion

              Recently, my husband put the Disney Plus streaming on our television. I have always loved Cinderella. It is my favorite Disney movie that involves a princess and romantic love story. I have the original book from when I was a kid and it remains my favorite today. I will say Beauty and the Beast is a very close second.             Anyway, I went on a little binge and watched the movies from the vault. I really did not realize how old these movies are. They remain in many hearts and are timeless classics. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs started the princess series in 1937. Then Pinocchio and many…

    My apologies!!!

    To those who sent me legitimate messages on my website, thank you! I apologize for not responding but I had a terrible SPAM issue and had to delete ALL messages that came in. I was not ignoring you and I appreciate your responses. Please feel free to try again if you need a response. I have been avoiding my blogs. Not on purpose but because life is crazy and I have so much going on that I had to give somewhere. I will work on getting back to this soon. I am writing my second self-help book and then after that, I am looking into writing fiction!! I am pretty…

    Unity is a Choice…….

    We were born with no choices. We weren’t able to choose to be American, African, Asian, or any other nationality. We didn’t have the choice of hair, eye, or skin color. We couldn’t decide what sex we would be. We were just born how we were with what was given to us. As we grow, we get choices. We decide what we like and don’t like. We choose how we live our lives. We choose to attend school and be educated. We choose what job we will do for a living. We choose where we will live. Of course, life alters plans and we do what we can at where…

    You are more…….

    Sometimes we feel less than. It can be caused by a stranger, boss, co-worker, friend, family member, or a partner in life. Things they say or how they treat you can make you feel belittled, disrespected, or degraded. It hurts and tears at your inner being. It can have you questioning your qualities, abilities, worthiness, or even your purpose. It could be about your job position, a silly disagreement, or your meaning of life. Depending on the length of time you deal with it, it can be breaking you down. You shouldn’t question anything about your life unless it’s to better yourself and not putting yourself down. If you work,…

    Dear Toni Tuesday……..

    Dear Toni, I have been trying to fulfill a dream for a couple of years now but it just isn’t happening. How long do you keep trying before you give up? Sincerely, R Dear R~ I give you kudos for following a dream and taking steps to achieve that goal. Good for you! Goals/dreams are very important to grow and achieving them is a wonderful feeling. Some dreams take a while to achieve. Some can wear us out. Do we continue and not give up or do we just say enough is enough. How much longer can I keep trying? Is this not meant to be? When to stop is…

    Dear Toni Tuesday……..

    Dear Toni, There is so much happening in the world right now that is negative. The politics, protesting, fighting, racism, mass shootings, and so much more. It’s too much. It makes it hard to stay motivated. With so much bad, how can you focus on the good? T Dear T~ Very good question. I am going to answer this in two ways because I don’t know if you are asking me directly or in general. As for me… I focus on the positive as much as possible. I am also realistic which has caused me to be called negative. You can be positive but still see what’s going on around…
