"Practice the Pause. When in doubt, pause. When angry, pause. When tired, pause. When stressed, pause. And when you pause, pray." - POP "Hold on to every genuine person you find. This generation has people driven by ego, money and status. As a result, good souls are ruined daily. Keep your headup and be conscious of the energy you give out and connect with." - the idealist "You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic; true power is restraint. If words control you that means everyone else can control you: breathe and allow things to pass." -Sylvester McNutt III "I'm not a early bird, I'm not a night owl...I'm some kind of permanently exhausted pogeon.." -

To my dearest son, Gabe

“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together… there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.” ― A.A. Milne I’ve been walked on, used and forgotten and from these moments I’ve learned a lot. I’ve learned who I can trust and can’t. I’ve learned the meaning of friendship. I’ve learned how to tell when people are lying and when they’re sincere. I’ve learned how to be myself and appreciate the truly great people in my life as they arrive. - Lessons Learned In Life Inc. "I'm finally learning to walk away from the people and situation that threaten my happiness, peace of mind, self-respect, and self worth." - Unknown. I hope that someday you find someone that gives you butterflies the moment you meet them. And that the first time you touch, it feels like electricity is running through your body. I hope that when you’re with them, you never want to leave. I hope you are the first and last thing they think about every day. I hope you play it cool in front of people, but can’t keep your hands off each other in private. I hope that when you give them your heart, they don’t break it. I hope that the things they tell you aren’t just things you want to hear, but things they want to say. I hope that you fit in their arms better than the last piece of a puzzle, and that you always feel safe when they hold you. I hope that when you fight, you fight hard, but that when you love, you love harder. I hope that once you find them, you can’t picture your life without them. I hope that they take your breath away. I hope that, together, you create happiness. I hope that with them, you’re not afraid of the future, but excited for it. I hope that, every day, they tell you how much they love you. I hope that when you find them, you realize it before it’s too late. I hope that you take them and love them and never let them go. I hope you find it. ~ Lauren M. Smithc When a toxic person can no longer control you, they will try to control how others see you. The misinformation will feel unfair, but stay above it, trusting that other people will eventually see the truth, just like you did. - unknown. #truth

Really, the golden rule.. treat others of how you want to be treated! Be kind to the unkind.

"Everyone goes through hard times at some point. Life isn't easy. Just something to think about. Did you know the people that are the strongest are usually the most sensitive? Did you know the people who exhibit the most kindness are the first to get mistreated? Did you know the ones who take care of others all the time are usually the ones who need it the most? Did you know the three hardest things to say are I love you, I'm sorry, and help me? Sometimes just because a person looks happy, you have to look past their smile to see how much pain they may be give a moment of support to all of those who have family problems, health struggles, job issues, worries of any kind and just needs to know that someone cares..." -A. Low

Kindess - Moms have the power of empathy. It's a power because we have the opportunity to do something with it. We can teach our kids to look at others like the treasure they are to someone else...We can turn that soft spot deep within our hearts into a place of strength because we are the people-makers, the heart-molders, the generation-shapers. - Kelsey Lasher

Ketchup sandwiches and other things stupid poor people eat "If you had help paying for college, if someone bought you your first car, if you had health insurance growing up, if your mom never cried over $17, you were lucky. The Hail Mary toss of birth landed you in a family that could put you on a soccer team and buy cleats as your foot grew. And someone was home to help you with your math and give you a gummy vitamin each morning. That’s called aid, by the way. And not all kids get it, but all kids should."
