Are You In Your Prime?

Posted by in Conversation Starters, Life Hacks, News

I’m not trying to sell this to you, but I am sharing that Amazon Prime keeps my world goin’ ’round.

I use the Subscribe and Save section every month, making sure to subscribe to at least five products so that I can save even more money.

‘Cause… I’m trying to minimize and simplify in all aspects of my life, at all times.

So by buying in bulk, only getting the delivery once a month, and not having to drive all over town going to different stores. It’s a win-win for me. Now I have more time to take the kids to parks, meditate, learn something new together, use the yoga trapeze (that I ordered from Amazon), go on bike rides, hikes, create an original piece of jewelry, or expand my world in some other good for the planet way.

The possibilities ARE endless!

 

See you on the flip side!

The Crystal Movie – By Spirit Science

Posted by in Conversation Starters, Inspiration, Life Hacks, News

Now, at first glance, you might be thinking… “Crystals?”, but don’t pre-judge anything before you check out this wonderfully informative video on crystals and how they can benefit many aspects of your life.

I am currently testing out all of the things they discuss in this short movie and I’ll let you know after a little more time how it’s going. (Honestly, so far so cool!)

I started using crystals just a few weeks ago because I stumbled upon great information that stated how beneficial they are to add to ones life. Crystal information seemed to be popping out everywhere. I’ve been making it a point to pay more attention to syncranicities that happen around me.

My sister was on the crystal train already and doing her own in-depth research which has proved to be very rewarding to her life.

Enjoy this easy to digest video!

Do you own any crystals?

I’ve heard that crystals go where they are needed.

Tell us a story of how you came to hold your crystals.

Looking forward to your comments!

Review Goals Regularly 

Posted by in Conversation Starters, Family, Inspiration, Life Hacks, News

I’ve been saying, for a few years now, that “This is the year! This is when all of our hard work rewards us with our goals!”

But the truth is, I know better.

As much as I want to be able to dictate when and where success will come, I know that luxury doesn’t happen on demand. 

I dream of being on my future-farm, able to sit in my office and get a few hours of un-interrupted writing done during daylight hours. That’s just not in the cards every day and that’s ok. Everyone deserves positive attention and guidance and I’m there for my children in that way. 

Since the new year, I have been practicing many new practices. One of which is learning how to manifest things using the power of positive thinking and using high vibrational frequencies to see if goals can be reached sooner. I’ll write more on this later, as today I’m just revisiting how well these manifesting practices are affecting my current life and situation. I will write whether or not they work at a later date. 

So, as much as I want to be an accomplished blogger, I recognize and realize that I will design, write blog posts, and books as much as I can until it opens up to do so more often.

After all, I am working on enjoying my children’s childhood, too! 

So, I am currently renouncing my stubborn ways and deciding to appreciate every moment I do get to work on what I want, when I want because, after all, that is my ultimate goal. To be able to do whatever I want when I want and I want that for everyone (as long as what you want does no harm to anyone or anything: )

Don’t worry! That usually means that I want to help those around me in any way I can without a negative impact. 

My children might interrupt me every few minutes on some days, but as they get older, they interrupt less and less, and I can sense and see that they really are doing well and becoming wonderful little human beings. 

We all enjoy excitedly talking about the entire family’s goals before bed each night and the family’s goals are great to discuss with the whole family, not just mom and dad deciding for the entire family, though there are times that is necessary, but not when you’re talking about goals. 

To let everyone speak up a bit about what they’re excited about in life is how we all start to connect or re-connect and connections are important your whole life, so why not cultivate an amazing relationship with your children from the start. 

Don’t get me wrong, bedtime still takes me way too long with three kids when I’m going solo, but the harder I have to work at life by myself, I get this sense that it’s adding something to a metaphorical piggy bank that will pay back in the future. 

That’s all for now. Have an awesome day!

I said Good Day ;)

Posted by in Conversation Starters, Inspiration, Life Hacks, News

Hello,

I hope you’re having a good day! Or do I?

You know I do.

In all honesty, I would describe my days like a rainbow, some parts are light and bright, some parts are a bit darker and I can get discouraged when it feels like there’s no end in sight!

Have you ever woken up and just gone “WHY!?” in your head, referring to thoughts like, “It’s too early.” or some variation, all the way up to, “Ugh… I hate my life!”?

Well, I have.

I used to regularly.

Everyday.



Ok! It was just most days… For a lot more of my life than I care to admit.

If I really think about it, I can pinpoint it back to when I would angrily be woken up by one of my older sisters to get ready for school. Those days are long since passed and I’ve integrated my demons, but back then, on the outside I was usually genuinely happy, but on the inside…

I was not “happy”.




And so it went. I didn’t feel terrible. I just didn’t feel awesome, either. I felt like a bonus piece in a puzzle. And not just any unheard of puzzle piece, but one that could fit into other puzzles, which would get confusing for me. Everywhere I went, I was accepted, but I felt like I was in the wrong puzzle.

After well over a decade of self discovery and research, I started to realize that I was no longer a maleable puzzle piece and that led me to the fantastic realization that not only, did I not care where I “fit in” anymore, but that now I want to create an amazing, conscious, humaine, ethical, wonderful puzzle of my very own 😀




We are but a collective conscious of the sum of our total experiences meeting up at this very point.

So, in the words of some of my ancestors, to you I say “Salut!” For this is not a hello or goodbye, but a good day!

Do You Have The Old 56k Modem Yet?

Posted by in Conversation Starters, Inspiration, News

I don’t know where you live and I feel like I’ve lived everywhere. Where I have been most recently, we have 300 megabit or megabite, idk the difference, but I know that they have 1000 mb now! I don’t know ’bout you, but I feel like I’m back in the late ’90’s with my parents 56k modem. 

My electronics aren’t that old. Where do the old machines go when they die? Is there a Wall-e robot crushing them and boxing them up somewhere? Please don’t be insulted if I don’t know. I want to know and will now do research on it. I don’t like feeling/being wasteful. 

So I’ll do some fact checking! It’s a must if you’re trying to make a difference! So who do you trust for great information sources? Please comment below any recommended sites. 

Thanks!

Happy New Year!

Posted by in Family, News

Hello 2017,

I am so excited for the year ahead. We have big plans this year and look forward to sharing it with you all. Some of those plans include continuing to build this site and its content. That will be my most challenging aspect of the year, incorporating more working (blogging) into my already long work(momming) day. When you’re a mother of three kids, especially high intensity boys, then you’ve got to get your goals and get going, otherwise someone grabs you and sends you on their mission they have for you. (Love you boys…) I’ve come up with the ideas for the pages and I really want to know what you think. This is something I’ve wanted to do for years. I was a blogger a few years back and really enjoyed it, but my kids were so young and life outside blogging got too demanding to keep track of.




If you don’t know what it’s like to have kids, let alone, 3 boys, let me give you a little insight. I wake up each morning around 5:30-6 a.m., excited for the day ahead, I ponder to myself… “How long do I have before anyone else wakes up?” about that time my youngest, Aiden, wakes up. Everyday.After about an hour of just mommy and Aiden, my other 2 wake up and then it’s the breakfast dash. I closely relate it to Parana’s feeding if we’re having cereal, but if we’re going with “Egg and a Hogle” then it’s a whole different adventure. It’s more like the seagull’s from Finding Nemo “Mine. Mine. Mine.” Not to give the impression that they don’t share well, but they definitely are competitive at times. After breakfast we try to discuss our goals to accomplish for that week or that day. This is another big goal for 2017. Really focusing on working goals that have tangible rewards. It’s been 10 years since my first pregnancy and 6 years since my last. I have fully potty trained kids, which is HUGE! and now I finally feel like my days are becoming my own. When I’m in the thick of momming and my days are not my own it feels like I’ve stepped outside my mind and I put my body on loan to the little souls that need it for all their own needs. When I just had my first son, i didn’t understand how easy I had it. Then I had my second son and thought, hey this is a piece of cake, I’ll have another. I thought it would be a girl, but hey, I love all my boys and couldn’t imagine my days without them. What i didn’t realize was what I was really getting myself into. I thought that I just had to be there and that would be enough, but if you want to be successful at momming then you need to look at the BIG picture and if you look at it enough like I did you see that if you can’t afford all the luxuries and intricacies that being wealthy and having your own version of a helpful tribe would, then it all falls on whoever is taking care of your children. And for me, that’s me and my family. It used to only be me and my husband, then it was just me, and in the past few years everyone has been slowly coming around, realizing “Hey, you’ve got something amazing here.” If I’m grocery shopping, I buy all organic local ingredients. I’m a co-owner at the local CO-OP and try to make almost everything from scratch. I’m a soft believer in the 80/20 rules in life. I don’t believe anything too strongly because the opposite of crazy is crazy, and I’m really into healing the whole body and soul, but I don’t walk around preaching smelling like patchouli (…not because I don’t like it, but I don’t, lol, and I don’t want to smell like it, no offense to anyone who enjoys it 😉

This year I plan to share how I make this confusing jigsaw puzzle of life make a little bit more sense to me. I have shortened healing time when my children suffer from illnesses, regrown enamel and gums, cured my own autoimmune/thyroid disorder I was suffering from due to depression, working on healing my torn rotator-cuff with collagen, making my own homemade beauty products and tips, sharing great unique family recipes, and anything else that pops up that seems worthy of sharing.

Thank you for reading and have a wonderful 2017!

-Holly
