In A Nutshell

As an ambitious 25 year old still figuring out parenting and my roll in the adult life I'm determined to get the most out of myself. Right now my main personal values are Challenge, Curiosity, Self-respect, and Belonging.

Every person has an inner voice telling them what they need, it says "wake up now" in the morning it says "don't eat that" when we're full. Growing up means learning that nobody can be that voice for you. You have to learn to hear it, and find the strength to listen over every other voice calling for your attention and telling you what you should and shouldn't be doing.

Motivation, Courage, Peace of Mind

The path to change begins with three foundational practices: thankfulness, inspiration, and giving.

Thankfulness is your motivator. I believe motivation to explore and create rises from an appreciation for what's already present

Inspiration fuels your courage. Borrow courage from others walking the same path. Quote their inspirational words in your journal every day, quote them in your mind, and on your walls, surround yourself with the support of courageous words.

Giving is your peace of mind, it's "the state of being where your mentally and spiritually at peace, with enough knowledge and understanding to keep yourself strong and face discord or stress". "How can I bring joy to others?" is a question that gives peace to your own heart and works therapy on your soul, it says, "I am content with all I have for myself, and have so much to offer others"

My hope is to build these three practices into the starting point and accumulative purpose for the Independent Living Program both in the Life Skills and Self Discovery portion. Essentially, organizing your house, time, life, finances, and learning about yourself is accomplished for the purpose of becoming more thankful, inspired, and live to bring your light to the world and all you have to offer.

The program will begin with a very basic foundational habit like this:

Every morning label the top of the page something like "Life is Good" and write three things your thankful for, remember graphically a specific reason your thankful, write details of what situations and circumstances make you so thankful.
Feel the invigorating energy, warmth, or whatever positive feelings settle in your heart as you think about those good memories. Write a note about the feelings writing these thankful words bring like "I feel content" "I feel loved" "I feel peaceful"

Life is Beautiful
