Embrace the Flow of Life and Unleash your Authenticity

Life can get a bit overwhelming as we get caught up in the frenzy of our daily responsibilities and obligations. From to-do lists to penciling in time, we try and control every aspect of our lives leaving little room for spontaneity. But what if we were to let go and allow things to flow naturally? What if by surrendering control and allowing ourselves to just be, we could experience a more genuine and fulfilling way of living. When we let things flow we open ourselves up to new possibilities, even if they deviate from our original plans. We let things happen in the moment without the constraints of how it should have happened, how it could have happened, or why it didn't happen. We stop conforming to societal expectations and worrying about how people are us. We live in the now and we show up as we are. 

You may be wondering how you could do such a thing. You may feel like you have too many responsibilities. Too many people too not let down. An image to keep up. But by embracing authenticity, you'll attract meaningful connections and experiences that align with who you are. Which in turn, leads to a more joyful and satisfying life. You can start by slowly implementing changes into your life. Let's explore some practical tips to help you incorporate this into your daily routine.


Practice Mindfulness: Embrace the power of the present moment. When your day feels chaotic, remember that the true essence of life lies in the here and now. It's normal to reminisce about the past or dream about the future, but these thoughts can sometimes bring stress or uncertainty. Mindfulness can bring a sense of calm and clarity to your day.  The key is to recognize that these thoughts are just creations of the mind. By acknowledging them and letting them go, you can stay grounded in the reality of the present. 

Let Go of Perfectionism: Trying to control every aspect of your life is exhausting. Embrace imperfections and accept that mistakes are a natural part of life. Everything doesn't have to be perfect. In fact, everything will not be perfect. And that's okay. Grant yourself permission to experience the joy of living without constantly striving for an unattainable ideal. 

Embrace Spontaneity: Open yourself up to unexpected opportunities, even if they don't fit into your carefully crafted plans. Embracing spontaneity can lead to new experiences and connections that you never imagined. 

Prioritize Self-Care: Take care of yourself by engaging in activities that bring you joy and rejuvenate your spirit. Whether it's a sweat-inducing workout, pouring your thoughts into a journal, or simply going for a walk, make self-care an essential part of your life. This includes pampering yourself, so don't forget the little indulgences like treating yourself to a new hairstyle or getting a massage. It's time to nourish your mind, body, and spirit.

Surround Yourself with Authentic People: Embrace genuine connections with people who embrace and uplift the real you. Don't waste your precious time on those who judge you or try to dictate how you should live. True authenticity means lifting each other up, not tearing each other down. Surround yourself with genuine souls and watch your own spirit flourish in a positive and nurturing environment.


Letting things flow and embracing authenticity can lead to a more fulfilling and genuine way of living. By surrendering control and allowing life to unfold naturally, you'll reduce stress and anxiety and find joy in the present moment. Start incorporating practical tips, like mindfulness and spontaneity, into your daily routine to start living a more authentic life today.

A Blog About Blogging -Someone Please Notice Me!

I've been spending some time joining social networks for Bloggers and checking out other blogs. One thing I've noticed is that a lot of people have a theme for their blog. The other thing that they have, that my blog doesn't have, is a header. I've seen so many pretty header images and catchy Blog titles. I'm wondering, "Is my blog missing something?" I chose not to use a header because I think it will clash with all the colors on my page and make everything look too busy. I chose not to stick to one theme because I have a million things to say and they come in a variety of different topics. I haven't been getting a lot of comments. So, I'm not sure if it has to do with the layout of my blog, or something else like that. I read somewhere online that for every 100 people that view your blog only 10 will comment. I can say that the social networks have paid off. Most of the comments that I received came from people who are members of those networks.

Selecting New Eyeglasses (It's Never a Bad Idea to Consider the Price)

I accidentally threw away my glasses one night, (that's so me, I had put them in a plastic bag with some snacks). That was over a year ago and I just recently took on the challenge of selecting and purchasing new eyeglasses . This is a challenge to me, because I always have a difficult time selecting the best glasses for my face shape and skin tone. Honestly, I hate the way I look in any glasses and if I didn't need prescription glasses in order to operate a vehicle, I would go without them. (I do not recommend that anyone else do that, and I'm sure my optometrist would scold me). In order to prevent myself from getting another ticket, I had to take on the task of finding some glasses that I would feel comfortable and confident in. This time around I did some online research on how to pick out the perfect glasses . I watched some videos, read some articles, figured out my face shape, and then forgot almost everything as soon as I walked into the optical shop and saw

Thursday Thoughts

I guess there comes a time when every mother has to come face to face with their teenager and let them know who's boss. Mother/daughter relationships can be difficult during these years. This Thursday's Thought: "Mother Nature is providential. She gives us twelve years to develop a love for our children before turning them into teenagers." ~William Galvin The reason behind the thought: My daughter crossed a line last night. This line crossing showed blatant disrespect and has changed our relationship forever. My daughter turned 13 in March. It's only been a few months and one of my worst fears has already come true. The fear that she would one day forget how much I love her and how much I've been here for her through the years. I've never had a teenager before and this is all new to me, but one thing I am not going to do is play friends with her and allow her to disrespect me.

...and they had the nerve to complain about a shirt that said cunt

I'm giving this guy a thumbs down for being a jerk and wearing the N-word on his shirt.

Bratz Big Kidz Music Stars

I tried my hardest to catch these dollies on sale this year. I planned to buy four. One for each of the girls. But they were selling out like crazy. My daughters just love Brat dolls. I don't know why. They have big heads, they break much easier than Barbie and they seriously overdue it on make-up. I was happy when MGA came up with the Bratz Kidz Dolls. These dolls don't where as much make-up. What I liked most about these Big Kidz, is that they are NOT dressed in slutty clothes. Although Yasmin's outfit still shows a little tummy, it is much more appropriate than others I have seen on this brand of doll. So anyway, as I searched the net for the new Bratz Big Kidz Music Stars, I could not find Sasha anywhere. I found the Bratz Big Kidz Snap-On Doll Sasha (who's skirt is way too short), but I could not find the Music Stars doll. I checked everywhere I could think of, (in the US) and found nothing. However, while searching the net I found that many stores in the UK ha
