This is from my wonderful Life Coach, British Hill


Let’s have a collective exercise today. Today…I want you to be very conscious of the energy you put around your thoughts and actions. Pay close attention to the “feelings” you have when you are thinking about (or talking about) your business, your work place, the people around you, your $ or lack of…etc. In other words, what you think about and focus on most often, you attract. So, starting right now, make it a point to catch yourself when you are having negative thoughts about ANYTHING today! Immediately turn it around and think it, say it, do it in a way that supports what you DO want! Not what you don’t. If you want things to improve for the better, believe and claim that it will…and because it’s so bad now, there is so much opportunity for it to get better and be a blessing to more people. I know for a fact that this exercise will unblock your blessings. I use it often and I try to apply it as much as possible. Try it all day today…and let me know how it goes”-)

Teach Your Daughters

Yesterday on facebook, one of my friends posted this and I just had to share:

Ladies and gentlemen teach your daughters to distinguish between a man who flatters her and a man who compliments her . A man who spends money on her and a man who invests in her . A man who views her as property and a man who views her properly . A man who lusts after her and a man who loves her . A man who believes he is God’s gift to women and a man who remembers a woman was God’s gift to man”. AMEN And i dont have any daughters

Back To School

Labor Day marks the official end of summer and the start of a new school year. In my house, my husband and I go back to school along with my son. So, now we are starting the 11th grade. My husband and I had the talk regarding expectations, as we do every year at the beginning of school.

It’s day 3 and why my son has decided to do it his way, instead of the right way. This year he is attending Connection Academy, which so far I am liking. Unfortunately, my son has decided to skip some of the important stuff. Well, last night we went through a subject, clicking on each and every to do. When I asked him if it was done, he said yes, of course. However, when I said, “Let me see it,” he couldn’t produce it. Therefore, he had to do everything again so that I could see it. He wasn’t a happy camper, obviously. (Lord help me! I’m trying not to go Madea on this boy. I did good.)

I had to explain to him the importance of doing what you know is right to do. Re-state the rules and going over the consequences when the rules are broken. I had to explain my responsibilities as his learning coach and his responsibilities as the student. It seems that since 9th grade, we have had to really stay on him to get his school work done properly. He is very intelligent and very capable of doing the work. What I see is laziness. This has been a little difficult for me because I love to learn. I was a great student. My mother told me that when school was closed, I cried. My son surely does not take after me.

Lucky for him, I love him and because of that love, I will stay the course and do whatever it takes to ensure that he does his very best, even when it hurts. One day he will love me for it. Right now, I am not highly favored, but that’s ok. My responsibility is to ensure that he is an asset to himself, the family he might have and society. 

I believe that education is a partnership between the teacher, parent, and the student. There are so many parents that send there kids to school and expect the teacher to do all the work. In my house, we are a team. What’s your thought on this? What advice can you give to parents that are going through a similar situation. I’m sure that I am not the only one.
