The Serendipitous Nature of Life – Finding Life Lessons When You Need Them

I’ve often found that life has a way of throwing lessons at you in a moment of struggle. In the past, I’ve said that I almost feel like I have some spiritual being looking out for me. I call that overlooking presence Jesus. Mainly because it feels like a nice name to call something that looks out for you. I’m not religious, but that doesn’t stop the feeling of some metaphysical force being present in a moment of need. And very recently, I’ve found a few life lessons serendipitously thrown at me just as I’ve needed them. Serendipitously Finding Life…

Using Self Doubt to Fuel Personal Growth

Quite often, I’m riddled with self doubt. Sometimes it’s manageable, other times it holds me back to the point where I want to quit whatever it is that I’m doing. But the vast majority of the time, I try to use my self doubt to fuel some sort of personal growth. As of this writing, I’m feeling that much self doubt about my writing that I’m writing a post about self doubt. I have to write about this as it’s all I can currently think about. Since I use this blog to talk openly about what’s going on, that’s what…

Action Challenge: Doing the Wye Valley Challenge for Action for Children

I said a few months back that I was looking for a charity challenge for 2018. Well, I’ve chosen one.

Well this time I’m dipping back into the walking side of the challenges and doing the longest…

Thinking About My Daughters Digital Footprint

When I started this blog, I didn’t really think about my daughter’s digital footprint. Maybe it was because I didn’t expect that I would actually keep blogging, or perhaps it just wasn’t on my mind. But since I’m very much looking at making this a permanent thing, and since it is growing, I thought it would be best that I thought about what this blog might mean for her, and more importantly, her unconsented digital footprint. What Is a Digital Footprint? As you can probably guess, I post photos of my daughter online. Lots in fact. Every time I do…

Thinking About Having a Second Child

We’re fast approaching Isabelle’s first birthday. And since it’s actually Sibling Day, which is another random day that people like to have, I thought it would be a good time to flesh out my thoughts on possibly creating a second child. When’s the Right Time? I’ve talked to a lot of people about babies since becoming a parent. It’s almost inevitable that you do. But everyone seems to have different opinions on when’s the best time to have the second child. Some say it’s better to get all the hard work out of the way early, and have them close…
