What's Important To You

Sometimes, it's easy to lose sight of what's truly important in our lives, especially in this day and age of social media. 
All you need to do is to log onto Facebook to feel like your life is crap 😂😂😂. In fact, you don't even have to go very far. Just step outside of your house, look at the posh cars sitting in your neighbors' homes and you're ready to beat yourself up over the head. 
I think that's the most futile exercise on the planet. Everyone's got their own wars to go through and as long as we continue to compare our lives to that of others, we're not going to be right here to celebrate whatever wins we have! . 

I spent a large part of my life yearning for what others have and what they think of me. Spending time appreciating my own little wins is so much more important than ever.

A simple thing like being alive should not lose its meaning. I guess perspective about life, what our daily struggles entail, what we can do for and to the world we…

Awesome Insta Ad: Corny But It Worked

Update: A Dent on the Car, in the Heart and the Freaking Wallet

We all have good days and we have bad ones. The past few days have been a balance of the two, more of the latter than usual.

I always try to start the day with it being a good day (not always successful, mind you) and most times, I have a pleasant day where I see everything through rose-tinted glasses. Where life is a smorgasbord of possibilities, fuzzy whimsical snowflake magic, and rainbow-colored skies.

Other days, not so much.


While on the way to drop the kids off at their center, I was butt-kissed. In other words, through no fault of mine, someone slammed into the back of my car. Nothing serious happened, thank goodness and I was very relieved that damage to the car appears minimal. A veryyyyyyy slight dent and I think we can handle that kind of dent.

The woman even had to chase me down on the road to ask me if there was anything wrong with my car because it sounded loud when she slammed into me. To cut a long story short, I thought I was hit by another car from the front and alm…
