There are so many different ways to frame up this little audio clip. And if you don’t have smart enough tools to give it a listen, well, I’m just sorry in advance.
The one specific quote that continually sticks out for me is when CJ is in the midst of his story and he says, ‘Again, like I always do … I went for honor and glory.’
Holy.cow. How many times have I let the fear of going for the long shot stop me? And yet, my nine (almost ten?!) year-old doesn’t hesitate. Like he always does. Because he really wants it. It’s so easy. #amiright?
And how true is that for you? What’s your honor and glory shot? What would it take for you to just step out in faith and see where you land? I literally just saw someone post this quote from Erin Hanson:
“What if I fall? Oh,but my darling,what if you fly?”
Find that child-like faith within yourself and just dare to fly. I know it’s advice I have to give myself con.stant.ly. And there is a LOT (like, a lot) to be afraid of. But just what if? What if we make the shot?
And imagine, if you take and make that shot as Connor did, you, too, could go home with your very own … stuffed bat.
Disclaimer: He totally knew I was recording him and I totally sound like a dork. But, he was that excited and I really do think he’s simply amazing.
I’ve stolen twice in the last week. Yep. I’m admitting it right here. Right now. Methinks I have a few too many things on my mind. That, or, I’m truly going to have to stop using the top of the cart as a spot for items I’m planning to purchase. Continue reading →
I posted back in April about the overly used ‘dancing in the rain’ quote. Guess what? It came up again. Funny how that happens, isn’t it?
Anyway, I wanted to grab a card for a friend today and just like it was meant to be, a card including that very quote stood up above the rest. What was I supposed to do … pass it over and look at the other cards? It’s like when you’re driving by Biggby and the sweet little voice in the backseat inquires, “Hey mom, can I get a Biggby?” You get the kid a Biggby.
It wasn’t too long ago one of my BFFs posted about the mommy wars that are all too common on the interwebs. Most commonly, you hear women comparing the challenges of being a SAHM or WOHM (which, to be honest, was an entirely new acronym for me … but I like it!) and which is “harder”. I don’t like to put my thoughts out there all the time on such heated topics because I’m too sensitive to get flamed. Note to all readers: my tender heart can’t take meanness so keep it to yourself or just talk behind my back. Whichever. Continue reading →
