Reflection To Move Forward....................

Thank you for stopping by More Than Mom Thoughts! I started this blog over three years ago. I specifically remember the feeling of  "jumping in without my floaties"! The feelings of uncertainty (not knowing what direction I was taking this blog in) vulnerability, curiosity and sheer delight when folks started reading my thoughts and coming back for more. Oh and how can I forget the surprise slice of Red Velvet cake from my Dear Husband to celebrate that first post!

With each passing post and feedback from my Dear Readers a blog was born!

This past year I began giving a voice to More Than Mom Thoughts by conducting presentations, sharing my journey, along with stories and my belief of the importance of being connected with our lives. For me the practice of  positive & mindful living, sprinkled with a bit of levity, can make all the difference in our days. I enjoy meeting people at my talks, sharing AHA! moments and touching lives.  My Connect With Your Life talks took shape, workshops were created and the only thing left to do was.......

Launch a new blog

If just discovering More Than Mom Thoughts, I invite you to read as many posts as you like (there are over 230 yikes!) in the Blog Archive section to the lower right portion of this page. Then jump on over to Connect With Your Life at the link above or below, where the discoveries, motivation and mindful living inspiration will continue.

To my Dear Readers who have been with me since the maiden voyage on October 18th, 2011, a great big THANK YOU, come on over and continue to Connect With Your Life!

New Thoughts..........

Greetings Dear Readers! Playing with new thoughts, I am taking a 4 week "or so", hiatus from my blog. (like how I build in a buffer there to ease my stress?...kind of like "ish", it allows for flexibility and keeps me on this side of cranky)

Knowing when you need to take a breath, is always something I recommend!!

It will be a time of Questioning! Exploring! And listening to a whisper! I'm thinking it's all part of New Year = New Thoughts!  

As always, I encourage you to hear the whisper, discover what you need and explore your Life!

How Do You Like Your Cookies.......

Thoughts to keep in mind as you think about goals in the new year!

Be realistic! There are already too many super heroes

Make expectations fun. Bubbles everyday?

Whatever you pick to do, once a week is a good place to start. Less pressure!

Yes you will stumble BUT that doesn't mean your goal is not possible. Just means when you do accomplish it you will know that you worked that much harder. High five to you!

Choose something that will enhance your Life. Pretty sure learning Japanese would be over zealous.....but if it interests you, give it a try!

Be kind to yourself when you do slip up. Remember.....slip up.....get up! Did you hear the one about the blogger who poured dish washing liquid on the two remaining chocolate chip cookies before tossing them in the trash??? No me either!

Believing in you Dear Readers!

Very Happy 2015 wishes around the world!
