Let’s talk about my son!

Hey everyone,

I just made a recent discovery. I was going through my blog and I realized that a majority of my posts were not about my child. Although I do enjoy writing inspirational and motivational posts, the whole purpose of this blog is supposed to be about the life of a single parent. I love my son and watching him grow up is truly a blessing. Let’s me give some more details about him.

My son’s name is Jeremiah. He is 2 years old and full of life. I am not in the best situation and I know that does have an effect on how he is growing up right now.  I am thankful that we have a place to live, even if it is with family. I am working to change our situation and, as my last post stated, I am trusting the process.

My son is developmentally behind on some of his learning achievements. I know my son is extremely smart and understands a lot for his age. His motor skills are freaking amazing but he lacks in the talking department. Does anyone have any suggestions to help my son communicate with me better? Any suggestions are welcome!

I am learning to stay strong in my decisions when it comes to my child. That can be difficult when you deal with opposing views. I don’t mind the way my parents raised me, I just wanna do things differently.

I hope everyone enjoyed reading this post. Feel free to leave comments if you want to.

 

Love,

Trust the Process

To my readers,

Here I go again. I am THE WORST. I don’t know why I’m this way. I let life get the best of me and I neglect my blog once again. I keep telling myself to focus and post more but every time I get a boost of energy, I quickly plateau later. As I have mentioned in previous posts, I struggle with consistency. I looked at my stats and I’m shocked that my last post was about 3 months ago. Although I am shocked, I’m not surprised by my actions. Even with all that goes on in my life, I have to learn to push myself to be more consistent and trust the process.

I know I want to be successful in the future an I understand that there is a process involved. I feel that in order to reach my goals, I must be willing to make sacrifices. I see so many success stories and I always wondered how that person got to that point. For example, I want this blog to be successful. I had wanted to start a blog for so long but I was always afraid of what my closest family and friends who think. It got to a point where I just said “Fuck it, I’m going to start my  blog!”. I wanted to be able to express my feelings when no one would listen. It’s hard being a loner because you constantly feel like no one listens or even pays any attention to you.

“When nobody else celebrates you, learn to celebrate yourself. When nobody else compliments you, then compliment yourself. It’s not up to other people to keep you encouraged. It’s up to you. Encouragement should come from the inside.”

As I continue to grow personally, I must trust the process. I know the road will be rough and it will have many bumps along the way. I will do whatever it takes to remain encouraged and continue to follow my dreams.

I encourage all my readers to continue reach your goals and always stay encouraged.

Much love
