The Impetus for Change is Compassion – #1000Speak

impetus for change is compassion. #1000voices @tinystepsmommy

Sometimes when I read about the suffering of others, especially the suffering of children, my stomach turns ever so slightly. Emotions begin to creep in — sadness, discomfort, guilt, frustration, fear. My heart palpitates and my mind wanders. So, I take a deep breath and try to focus on the people right in front of […]

This Is Marriage

This is Marriage - @TinystepsMommy

The greenish-blue hue of the cheaply made hair net matches his eyes. The blankets cover his body and the IV bag hangs behind him. He is about to be wheeled into surgery – a minor foot surgery to remove a broken sesamoid bone which has caused pain for nearly two years. I hold my breath […]

Baby Fever Is Real – Help Me Shut It Down

Baby Fever is Real @Tinystepsmommy

Baby fever is real. It’s a scientifically proven feeling that can creep in from time to time. In my late twenties and early thirties, it was all I could think about. I wanted a big family. I wanted to surround myself with little ones and absorb all of their baby cuteness. I didn’t care about […]

In Dreams You Are Always Close

I Will Always Remember Daddy

It is has been a year since we said goodbye. A year without your Hawaiian shirts in the summer and brown sweaters in the winter. A year without your cheesy jokes and your sometimes inappropriately timed sense of humor. A year without your advice and support. My car broke down and I cried because who else would […]

Why Does Anyone Make a Choice to Change?

Change is a choice @tinystepsmommy

“So what makes you unhappy?” It’s a question that stopped me in my tracks. Am I really unhappy? Or just wishing to improve certain aspects of my life? Can you desire change without being miserable? I pondered this for days. Why does anyone make a choice to change? Is it jealousy, fear, anger, sadness, discontentment… […]

I am Grateful for Lifelong Friends

there is nothing like life long friends @tinystepsmommy

Friendships that persevere are not necessarily the most perfect ones. Sometimes you can’t even pinpoint why they make sense, but they do. Truth be told, my inner circle of close friends is pretty small. I have dear friends that will always take residence in my heart, but because of distance and circumstance have moved away from my daily […]

Change Starts Within Our Heart

Change Starts Within Our HEart

On Monday, I declared 2015 the year of change. It’s what I wish for all of us. The ability to not only dream or want, but to take action and reach our goals – from the small and seemingly trivial to the large and boundless. But, change — all change — has to start within our heart and not within our mind. […]

We Can Make 2015 The Year of Change

2015 IS THE YEAR of CHANGE (1)

It’s the first Monday of 2015 and I am ready to focus on making changes – big and small. 2015 is going to be THE year of change for all of us. I can feel it. It’s the year we stop talking (or writing) about what we want to happen. Instead, it’s the year we make the […]
