Life Can Move So Fast

Lately while dealing with lack of sleep I find that I have little patience for life. I have become more outspoken, although usually polite but not always, about life and ideas and standing up for what I believe in. Usually I refer to this situation as growing a back bone, because really I have, but I think it has a lot to do with lack of sleep and getting older. I really have no patience for people who don't use common sense and can't appreciate another persons opinion. I don't know how many blogs I read daily but there are a ton and I bet I don't agree 100% with what they all have to say, but I still leave a comment and I still respect their opinion and open my eyes to understand their side.

Life is way too darn short to be sitting here dwelling on crap that happened yesterday let alone what happened years ago. I have let go of the anger I held for so long against some people in my life and have moved on to acceptance. The day I became a parent I realized that we all do the best we can with the life we have and now that I am pushing 30 years old I am an avid promoter of parenting how you want to parent, being who you want to be and not worrying about the rest of the world. When the day is over it's you and your family in your home so make sure the decisions you are making will only make your family better not worse.

I feel like my children are growing up before my eyes and I can't slow down the pace of life. My middle child will be in Kindergarten next year, seems like just yesterday he was the little baby we called Chunk. My daughter, first born child, is amazing and so smart, the girl can debate and actually make valid points no matter what come back you have! My youngest is still my baby but I do see that yes, he too, is growing up and trying to step out and find his true self.

All I wish for in my life is to spread happiness and optimistic thoughts to all in this world but most importantly to my children. I want my children to have a smile on their face as often as possible, respect others, and use common sense as they start heading off to school and away from their parents to be individuals.
