First start here, You Matter from Simple Mom. YOU MATTER, Mama. Really, you do.
Then watch this and let yourself have a good laugh as you are reminded of the glory days of your youth. For me, I was in 9th grade, miserable in an all girls school, and talking to my then crush, now husband on the phone until 2 a.m every morning on my own phone line that just happened to be used with a pink neon light up phone.
Once that is done, PLEASE PLEASE, if nothing else go over and read this fantastic post on Why Social Media Doesn't Make You Jealous by Jami at Hello from the Nato's. It will knock your socks off.
Have a dream? Then go here and read a little ditty by Carlos Whittaker, People Will Never Respect You For What You Are About To Do. I challenge you to take some thought into his closing question. Quit thinking and DO IT, Mama! Live the calling He has placed on your life.
And finally, to wrap it all up, go read Big Mama's post on Pioneer Woman Entertainment about the show Nashville. Love the show and the clip she has with the post is sure to make you smile. Then go out and get guitar and voice lessons for your children, or if you are like me, for yourself. Who wouldn't want to learn how to jam to Ho Hey by the Lumineers????
Hope your spirit is filled and your load is a little lighter.
Would love to hear what was your favorite!
