Hello again!

I’m writing to reconnect with my bloggers! It’s been a crazy last few months and I am so ready for school to be out!! My oldest son is in Austin taking summer classes! I dropped by unannounced and found his apartment very clean except for his bedroom and bathroom. (Typical for him).

It’s why boys need moms to drop in periodically!
We have had recitals and end of year programs and a National honor society inductee as well as employees taking vacations and blah blah blah!
So I’m exhausted and what did I decide to do about it?
I’m adding more yoga classes to my routine. It will be good for me and I need to focus on overcoming the tedium that the end of the school year causes in a family. No they aren’t doing much in school but here it is summertime and what shall we do as parents?
I’m going to enjoy it and focus on my yoga classes!
Think! Live! Love!
Namaste!

Take care of yourself

You can’t take care of anyone without taking care of yourself first. Remember that you are only as good as your best intent. Don’t be afraid to take care of yourself first. If you aren’t happy, how can you make anyone else happy? So find your joy and practice it. Whether it be yoga or writing or dancing or running, find your joy. Even if sitting and thinking, meditating if you will, enjoy the moment.
Think! Live! Love!
Namaste!

What is written isn’t always true

I am a writer. Often I write about things that I know, things familiar to me, and I’ve written for my entire life so not all of my writing is from my current perspective. Many things I write about are contrived, imaginations of my mind based on a lifetime of what I like to call “people watching”. Yes, my characters and story lines are generally based on this people watching and my characters are a combination of experiences that I have had in my life. If you feel yourself, as my friend or colleague, over scrutinized in my literature, it’s simply a coincidence. I don’t mean to make anyone uncomfortable so if you see yourself as one of my characters, then I am honored that you can relate to the things that I record. If you can relate, then so can the rest of the population, which is my goal.
Think! Live! Love!
Namaste
April
