None of us are exempt from life experiences getting us down. Too many stressors from our daily responsibilities have the potential to make us snappy towards people or situations that do not have any immediate connection to the source of irritation.

When Your Plans Fail Yet The Outcome Remains The Same.
In the year 2010, I enrolled in The Writer’s Institute Of Children’s Literature. The online writing course filled my heart with so much joy. I learned so much about children’s literature.

It was nice sharing the possibilities of building a better life for our family. And so the process of finding a home began. Continue reading

None of us are oblivious to being disappointed. Excuse my French, but shit happens. Even while trying to do all the right things, sometimes conflict seems to come out of nowhere. That’s life right? Although life happens, most of us are taught to make lemonade out of the sour lemons that have been tossed in our direction. And yes that sounds sweet, but what about the feelings of sadness, anger, confusion, and lack of trust deriving from the situations we sometimes find ourselves associated? The recipe for developing pink lemonade doesn’t sound as easy to create? Continue reading
