Be Kind to Yourself

Self-love has grown to be a hot topic in this day and age. Honestly, it can be harder to practice kindness to ourselves than it is to practice kindness towards others. Despite this, we should all strive to do so, with the understanding that outward compassion starts within our own entity. We love others to the greatest utmost capacity when we learn to love ourselves. But self-love is often confused with superficial action, like taking yourself on a shopping trip, running an extra long bath, or getting a makeover. All these things can make you feel good physically, however, in the long run, they are not sustainable mentally; not to mention financially. Self-love means being patient with yourself when you’re emotionally drained or strained. Self-love…


Character Counts

By Ellen Mongan Sesame Street is celebrating fifty years of broadcasting.  For five decades they have been invited into homes around the country to educate young and old alike. You never know who you will meet on Sesame Street or what life lessons you will take away? Sesame Street was always a welcoming part of my everyday life while raising my seven children. As we watched the show together we grew together. I used the show’s topic each day as a springboard for teaching character to my children. At the end of each broadcast, having a catchy tune playing in my head was commonplace for me. I would usually hum along. The words are still quite familiar to this day.…


Defining Family

Family: According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, a family is, “the basic unit in society traditionally consisting of two parents rearing their children”, but there is also this definition, “any of various social units differing from but regarded as equivalent to the traditional family”. Based on those definitions, family could be anyone! My personal idea of a family is a group of people, blood related or not, that love and support you during the best, worst, or even fairly regular moments in life. Without my family, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. My parents raised me to be a person with my own thoughts, opinions, and feelings about life. To love others, and to be kind, but also to love…


The Tree of Hope – A short story

t was a warm sunny summer day. The soft rays of the sun fell on the freshly mowed grass. The lilies and dandelions swayed to and fro in the gentle breeze. Nearby, a slow stream of water moved lazily through the rocks creating a melodious sound. The trees were lush green and the blooming flowers boasted of their lovely color and fragrance. The birds and squirrels seemed to be enjoying their awakening to this beautiful day. All appeared happy and gay. But there – right in the centre of this luscious field, stood a lonely tree. It was a tree that bore no leaves, fruits or flowers. Passersby often remarked, “What an odd tree. Look at its long curvy weird…


It’s All For Love

ay I say – having a baby with someone is one of the ultimate forms of love. In most cases, it shows that you love someone enough to have them in your life forever, because a child will be in your life forever. My husband and I were not married before we found out we were pregnant. We knew what we were getting into when we found out, and that we would be getting married. He had to fly to Japan the day after we found out, and I knew planning a wedding was going to be difficult, since Japan is a full 16 or 17 hours ahead of California, but I was prepared. I loved him, and he loved…
