What I Want For My Life

I love being a mom,  I love my kids more than life itself. I love watching them play and learn new things. 
I love listening to them talk and tell me stories. I would not change a thing about them. 

But.. I didn't take the time when I was younger, to figure out who I was. I just got married, and had some kids early on so I could get on with this life I thought I was supposed to live.

I've gone through a few identity crises in my short life. I still don't know exactly who I am, but I like to imagine myself doing things I think I would love. 
It kind of helps me figure out what I want from this life and how I can work toward something similar even with a family. 

If I were single... 

I imagine,  if I was single, I'd be broke. I would work at crappy jobs just to make a little money to do the things I want to do.

I would try moving out of state or travel the world by finding jobs in different areas and saving up to buy a plane ticket to the next place. All the while learning about different cultures and maybe learning some new languages. Making new friends along the way. 

Id work on making something of myself. Whether that be making it big with my blog or starting my own business somehow. 

I would work on my photography skills and become a pro nature photographer. Id just takes pictures of all the places I travel,  and maybe I could make some money doing that. 

I would try to get a grant to go back to school and get a degree in psychology. Use that to help others. Maybe become a therapist. 

I love the idea of this person that I want to be. I know it's not practical,  and it isn't a safe lifestyle. I know it's not going to happen.  I have a husband that would hate living a risky life like this,  and two beautiful kids that need stability in life. Although this is something id love, I can at least try to use these ideas to make my life a little more like how I want to live. 
Try to travel more, work on my blog or my photography a little more professionally. Maybe even come up with a great business idea. 

I believe writing down these things that you truly want to do, help you discover who you truly are. It will help you find things that would make you happy. And maybe even motivate you to try to get this life that your soul desires. 

What do you desire from life?

How I saved hundreds of dollars for Christmas.

Christmas is an expensive time of year for most.  For my family,  we set a strict budget for Christmas and try not to go over.  This year though is the first year I came out under budget!  We set a $900 budget for all Christmas gift purchases. Since I don't work and my husband has had a kind of crappy sales year, we needed to have a strict budget to not overextend ourselves. 
For a few years, I've been using some money making apps to earn a little extra cash for Christmas and birthday gifts. This year it's really paid off!  I was able to use $150 from these apps to put toward Christmas! Using rewards from stores has saved me a good chunk of cash as well!
Want to know exactly how I saved so much money?
Kohls: I love taking advantage of Kohl's because they have great deals,  and they give you kohls cash for purchases you make.  This year I did some shopping at Kohl's and ended up with $55 in Kohl's cash. So I was able to use that toward a few gifts for my extend…

My Favorite Finds of 2018

2018 is coming to a close. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by.  2018 brought many fun things to my life.  For 2018 I made a goal to get out of my comfort zone,  to be a better parent, and to find more hobbies that interest me.  I did a pretty good job with all of these parts of my life. I started this blog which is really out of my comfort zone.  I've also been able to make a few new friends which are a miracle for me.   I worked on how I talk to my kids.  Apologizing to them more often when I do something wrong,  and making sure I tell them I love them as often as I can.  And as for the new hobbies, I've started a few.  I count my blog as a hobby since it's not really a money maker right now,  and I love writing for it.  
I've found a bunch of things that have improved my life in some way or another and I want to share them with you.  Maybe you might find something new you haven't tried or something that can improve your life in 2019!

How to Find Success in Life

Success is something everyone wants, but we might define it differently. A lot of people associate success with having lots of money or having a fancy job title. 
I think success can be a lot of different things. You can have success in relationships,  or creating that family you always wanted,  maybe it's being a successful athlete,  or getting that master or doctorates degree you have been working so hard to get. I think success can be anything you want that involves you to work hard to get. 
There are some things you can do to help you live the successful life you want.
