Time is a funny thing to me. We sometimes want it to pass by quickly, but when it does, we nag about where it all went. I remember when my daughter was a newborn, I wanted her to walk. I wanted her to talk already. I wanted everything so quickly. They always say be careful what you wish for and it is true. She is growing so fast now. I just want her to pause a little, so she can give me more time to become a better person. So I can find my niche in life and to be able to succeed a little more for her.
Time doesn’t stop for anyone. One day you’re walking into the market buying pampers, the next day you’re watching your child compete in a track meet. I always envisioned parenthood as a sensei/grasshopper scenario. Truth is, parenthood is packed with lessons that consist of being taught by either the child or the parent.
Embry Ann is and will forever be my hero. I have reached dark times in my life in which I felt I would never get out of; but somehow this little, assertive, courageous girl managed to help me get through it all. I have lost hope in myself plenty of times when it comes to certain aspects of my life. However, giving up on myself is one thing, but giving up on her is another. I figured if I didn’t have motivation for myself then I would live for her and succeed for her.
Embry Ann has taught me that it is okay to fail. It is okay to make mistakes as long as I learn from them. I never thought it was possible to smile on my darkest days, until I had her. I thank her for making me the person I am today and for helping me overcome many milestones.
I am not certainly sure if Embry Ann will ever get the chance to see all my writing when she is older. If for some reason she comes across this post:
Thank you for being such a genuine individual and for loving me. I may not be the easiest person to deal with but love is real and it pushes you to do many amazing things. I hope I make you as proud as you make me. I love you Pocoyo, to the moon.
For starters, I would like to introduce myself:
My name is Bonnie and I have always enjoyed reading. My love for reading soon turned into my love for writing and so forth. I have a six year old daughter (she’s actually turning 7 this weekend, time flies!!!!) and she means the world to me. She actually kind of makes me want to pull my hair out, but I strongly believe it is a mutual feeling. I am very sarcastic, witty, and just an overall AWESOME person (did you catch the sarcasm in that?). I enjoy singing and dancing regardless of the fact that I am terrible at both. I can be a homebody some days but a party animal most days (har har har).
Once upon a time I used to really care of what others thought of me, but as time flies, I soon realize that I am only getting older so I am going to do whatever makes me happy. I always jokingly say I am almost 30, but I am just six years away and in my mind it feels like I’ll be turning thirty, flirty, and thriving tomorrow.
I am an English major and hope to be an educator some day. I am currently in my own pursuit of happiness, but who isn’t? I have set long-term and short-term goals for myself, in which I hope to conquer.
I would overall just like to say that I am a down to earth person and love my cat very much.
Hi! Hello! Hellirrr!
The first time I launched my blog was over a year ago. I had recently moved to Texas and tried my best to settle in. Miraculously, I was able to make the best of it but I always knew there was no place like California.
I have recently moved back and it feels great! I have been contemplating whether or not to start up my blog again but several things held me back. One being, I grew very insecure with my writing. To top it off, I had MAJOR MAJOR writer’s block. I felt like I was being very redundant and I began to bore myself.
BUT ANYWAYS, I am back in hopes to keep this one for as long as I can. I figured it could be a great way to expand my writing techniques and be able to interact with other writers as well. I intend to keep my blog as simple as possible because I am not quite creative. However, I do plan to talk about different topics.
So, I hope you enjoy and welcome to my blog 🙂
