More Love

Angela at The Pagan Mom Blog has gifted me this sweet blog award. Thanks! I needed something to blog about. =]

These are the rules of the award

1.Thank the person who gave you this award.
2.Share 7 things about yourself.
3.Pass the award along to 4 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic!
4.Contact the bloggers you’ve picked and let them know about the award.

My 7 Things

1. I am forever the optimist. It takes a lot to get me down usually. The little episode where I was sad for a couple weeks really scared me. I'm glad that it's over, thanks to my AMAZING friends showing me that I'm loved.
2. People are very important to me. I didn't realize this until I came to school. I never thought of myself as absolutely needing to be around others who I know care about me, but it is something I need. I'm not sure how I feel about this.
3. I enjoy pushing myself to go farther than I think I can. I want to know that I can do things. I get very down on myself when I mess something up.
4. There are times when I have no control over my emotions. My emotions scare me, and I don't share the negative ones very often. When I lose control over them I don't know who I am.
5. I am a 5-year-old at heart. I have a jump rope, sidewalk chalk, and balloons.
6. I have punch ball balloons that I punch when I get angry or frustrated. It really works!
7. I have big plans for my future. Since coming to school I constantly worry that there is more expected from me than I want to do, though. If I think about the future too much I get really scared and freak out.

Due to my being so absent as of late I'm not really sure who to pass this on to. If you're reading then please take it and share something about yourself with me! Tell me in a comment if you take it so I can make sure to read your post.


  1. I like the idea of punch ball balloons!!! What a great stress reliever!

    Ooo - & add a hula hoop to #5!! I began making 'adult' hoops last summer, & love playing with the kids at my FIVE yr old granddaugter's play school at recess - I'm hoopin' while they run & ride bikes - & show the other moms how - just put one foot forward, & rock more than rotate . . . & it should be bigger n heavier than 'kid hoops'

    My dau & I went to a talk on mental health & food allergies/ esp gluten - woo - I'm SO GLAD we went G free last summer!! The nurse - who gave the talk said mental health issues (any of the 'alphabet soup' of kids' learning probs - ADD/ADHD dyslexia, etc) depression, mental fuzziness; think of going 'off' gluten for 6-8 weeks!

    Hugs!! Dream big :)
