#TILTtip Book Club – The Five Secrets You Must Discover Before You Die

Hi!

We all struggle with so many different directions we can focus. How do we know what  to focus on? John Izzo’s book helps us self discover what could matter most.

John interviewed 200+ people over age 60. “To live wisely we must recognize that there are two fundamental truths about a human life.
#1 The first is that we have a limited and undefined amount of time –
it may be 100 years, it may be 30.
#2 The second is that in that limited and undefined amount of time we have an almost unlimited number of choices of how to use our time – and those choices ultimately define our lives.”

Read his book to get a better understanding of how to have
more happiness, and love, in your life. 

 

Enjoy!

Ever have one of those days?!

Ever had one of those days??

*DSC_0140
It is that time of year with the kids out of school and the life juggling goes to another level. Sometimes it feels like donkeys are all around,
or they are at least trying to eat us.

DON’T LET AN OVERWHELMING SEASON
FRUSTRATE YOU. 

Allow yourself to “tread water” some and don’t pressure yourself for perfection,

take a deep breathe and focus instead on what makes this “season” in your life special,

watch funny youtube videos for a brain break (check out Studio C),

and (take action) go have an ice cream with someone little around you
who loves you so much.
Sooner than you realize, you will be chasing them down instead of the reverse.

Many wishes for a sweet summer season
making memories with those you love, 

Marci

“Ellie’s Fun Day at the Farm.”
We had to rescue Pudgy before she became lunch!)

Motherhood is not for sissies. That is why we have Mother’s Day.

Motherhood is not for sissies.

That’s why we have Mother’s Day. Because we deserve it.

That moment when…

Your child throws up in the car in the middle of your road trip.

Your child out of the blue refuses to wear button shirts. For 8 years.

Your child hands you a booger.

Your child tells you his art teacher is evil. Then insists on it repeatedly. In front of the principal.

Your child keeps telling you knock knock jokes. They are so bad you can’t even pretend laugh. But she won’t stop.

Your child takes off her shoes in the car, and you have to open the windows to breathe.

Your child belches so loudly in the restaurant that the cook in the kitchen had to hear it.

Your child trips and throws the bug bucket filled with dirt and worms all over an unexpecting woman.

That moment when…

They tell you they love you and don’t know what they would do without you. To infinity and beyond. Better than their favorite ice cream with whip cream and sprinkles on top. To the ends of the universe and back.

That’s why we have Mother’s Day. To celebrate it all.

 

Enjoy this wonderful day!!

Wings

Tilt_Graphic - July Wings

So often we beat ourselves up with guilt, thinking that we should be that “Wonder Woman” mom like “all” the other moms are.

I have to tell you – behind closed doors none of us are Wonder Woman moms.  Everyone has their own struggles or worries or responsibilities.

One of the biggest causes of our guilt is this idea that we have to do way too much FOR our children.

In fact, the best thing we can do is teach them how to do it for themselves. 

So remind yourself that when we teach them, we give them WINGS. And we give wings to ourself.

Here’s to our wings!
