Many of you know that Samantha is in Hawaii for a semester of school. I received the worst call a mother can get today. "Mom, guess what I've signed up to do- SKYDIVING!" My mantra kicks in "Breathe, Breathe." That is so nice honey. What is a mom supposed to say. I'm a mom I worry. When I was her age I would of been going with her. Why is it scarier to have her going.
Starting this blog is sort of like skydiving for me, because I am putting myself out there so I made some rules for myself.
Rule number one -You will read nothing negative on my blog. No sarcasm, no poking fun at anyone but myself. I know this is a stretch for me because of my deep streak of sarcasm. I have found I feel better about myself when I try to eliminate that ugly habit in my life.
Rule number two- my daily blogs will be about a funny or inspiring thought or incident that happened to me today.
Rule Number three- I will look for and find moments of joy everyday. I will also look for Clarity Points in my life. Clarity Points are listening for that "aha" moment when everything clicks and truth shines. When that moment comes I will remember it- take it in.
Three simple rules. Thanks Sam for reminding me of that today and honey have a blast.
