Life is an amazing ride and we all need to consider a budget. I always say, time is ticking. Do we allow time to steal away our intentions of acting upon our dream? I say, "budget your time!" Like money management, we all need to learn how to budget our day.

For me, motherhood takes precedence to anything else. I resolved long ago, my dream is there inside my heart in concession with the universal flow of life itself.

I respect life. A child is only a child once. Each day, I hug my child to know I am acting upon my dream of love. Within this, I am creating in the moment.

Writing is life for me. Visual expression is life for me. Creativity is life!!! Motherhood is the breath of life. If only I could figure out how to budget my time to fit my secondary dreams into this life. Stories come, they sit, and sometimes disintegrate. They brew, and bubble. I write from time-to-time.

I create with no audience to honor my intelligence. Yet, I live.

Here I am. Like the leaf who drops from a tree and nourishes the earth. Like a feather, falling from the skies. Who will reach to honor the intricacies of my expression? SIGH!

    I being a mother was the best thing I've ever done in my life.
    I stoped doing things just to stay home with my son.
    My best decision

    I just tried to write another blog but was stopped by the system reading my entry as "SPAM." So, I placed the writing on the forum titled, "Love & Peace." Check it out if you have a chance. And, when LK's team fixes the "bug" identifying me as "SPAM," I will then place this on my blog!

    Happy Reading! And, thank you for your lovely support! It means a lot to me!!

    Never give up for your life is a gift! There was a teacher, Billy Mills (an Olympic underdog runner who ended up winning the gold medal) who once told me, "You are a gift from God. What you do with your life is a gift back to God!"

    These words are planted within my mind, heart, and soul! Let Love Rule!

    I see a lot of my younger self in your writing. I thought that motherhood was IT and that an outlet such as writing was nourishing for me.
    Now, daughters 19 & 16, a few bf's later, a divorce and life happenings. I'm jaded.
    Trying to get that back... so thanks for the reminder of how things can be again.
