It's just too much!

How are you my friends?! I feel as though I have been some what absent here lately not that my heart isn't still in it I just have stepped back a little to evaluate how I see things going for this site. I always seem to have a very specific idea of what I want to post about, but I have started two posts and haven't been able to complete them. I think it may because so many things have been going on lately that if I don't write it down right away it just all jumbles up in my mind and I can't write it out. My life is full of the same stuff I suspect your life is made up of, love, happiness, frustration, a million things to do, trying to find balance, successes, failures that send you back to the drawing board. Progress, oh how I love progress.
Focus on what matters, that which is in front of you. Leave the past in the past and keep moving forward.
This blog and all that goes along with it has taught me a lot about patience. I want results NOW is how I started all this! I am starting to see more and more that real change takes time and I am becoming more and more okay with that in every faucet of life. For instance I have always wanted to be more mindful of others where ever I go and don't want to be fearful to talk to others where ever I may be. I finally starting to see more and more in the past few months that I can't help but pay attention to those around me not in a judgmental sort of way but that I wonder if they are okay and if there is anything I can do to help. It seems like such a simple thing, but it's taken great desire many years and countless life lessons to get to where I am; being mindful of others always (mostly) I still need more practice but I am getting better and I love to see progress. I find myself giving people the benefit of the doubt more readily, not taking offence because someone does things differently (which applies to so many things in life). As a teen I remember always being on the defensive but I always wanted to be out going and able to help others. Slowly I am getting there who knows maybe by the time I am 90 I can be like Mother Teresa!

I don't have a lot to say today, I just don't want you to think I have abandoned you.

Be patient with yourself, that doesn't mean you quit trying and give up on the contrary it means you keep getting up and moving forward, every single day. You will get there, whatever you truly desire will be yours, in time.

Also I updated the "What is The SIP Project?" page and would love for you to read it and let me know if there is anything else that I should add to it or take away from it. I hope I simplified it and that it makes more sense. I need your thoughts, I need your fresh eyes :)

All my love,



  1. I think the changes look great and I love that you have given two very specific options. I also wanted to say that I love the other changes you have made to the blog. It looks really nice!

  2. Thanks for the post. I needed to hear what you wrote. I have been so self absorbed that I don't think I have paid any attention to those around me. I am also learning how to be patient. Things do not always go the way we want them to or on our time schedule.
    I think you are great at reading people's emotions- you always seem to know when I need a friend to talk to.
    You are an amazing lady- it won't take you until you are 90 to be like Mother Teresa, you already have a caring heart like she did.

  3. Thank you for this post, as the kids go back to school I find that I am trying to re-evaluate what I should be filling my time with. Thanks for getting me thinking
