    5 Reasons why family dinner is important for my large family

    Family Dinner? Let’s talk! Hello Everyone! What a beautiful fall day it is! I hope everyone is enjoying it in a way that keeps them smiling throughout the day 🙂 In the spirit of the holidays, there has been a lot of discussion amongst my coworkers and I about the upcoming family gatherings. The loud screaming at the t.v. from the favorite uncle in the living room because his team is losing or because he needs another beverage. Many can’t wait to have those long overdue conversations and spend that much-needed time with family members from afar. While others are thinking about how excited they are to cook their favorite recipes…

    Ranting: Excuse my language!

      Warning: This is me ranting so read at your own risk! Hello fellow bloggers and people of the internet! I’ve been working on controlling my anger for the past couple of months so I am definitely in need of a release and having a good ole ranting session is what I decided on, so here goes!

She breaths tortured thoughts into an already broken soul, which harbors every word. The pain she endures runs deep into treacherous territory, Oh, the way she loves.

    Moments of Self Reflection

    Personal Inventory of a Beautiful Mess Self reflection is something that I tend to do often but it has an adverse affect on me. Instead of me taking the personal inventory that I’ve collected to better myself, I take it and beat myself down. We all know that saying, “You are your own worse enemy”. Well it’s almost as though it defines exactly who I am, sadly. I realize now that I’ve been such an enemy to myself that it’s affected so many relationships in my life. I’ve had many moments of drowning myself in such negative thoughts that I’ve unintentionally and sometimes intentionally, pushed people away from me. I…
