Join Me On My Adventure and Get Inspired | El Paso, Texas
In a world where we are constantly moving, we often find it nearly impossible to take a moment for ourselves. Too many times, we find ourselves overwhelmed by the people around us; our bosses, our co-workers, the people at the grocery store, the bank, and finally, our own children.
So, let’s stop for a few minutes, and ask ourselves one single question: “Do we ever really have a moment where we are alone with our own thoughts? A special moment we choose to achieve one thing and one thing only, replenishing our minds?”
Most of us will agree that it’s difficult to know how often we are mentally or physically able to reinvigorate our mind, body, and soul through thought-provoking information that feeds our intellect.
I work with children all day and I find myself constantly craving conversation that involves some challenging kind of dialogue. Don't get me wrong! I have some smart cookies, and many ask their fair share of questions that cause me to pause and think about how and what to respond. Just like every other human being, I don't know everything; although, they do seem to think I do. No need to let them down. Bless their little hearts. Still, we sometimes crave conversation that challenges our mind’s boundaries and keeps us on our toes. We want to be well-informed and better for our own sake. It's a part of our “adult” makeup.
The truth is, there are only so many hours in a day, and we just don't have the time we wish we did. Our society is not that of our grandparents or even parents. We are active. In constant movement. So, what about us? What can we do to help ourselves become more in-tune with our desire to learn? Or have we given up? Reading "stuff" on Facebook isn't necessarily the best way to acquire information to infuse our minds, is it? Well, I hope not. Reading medical journals and websites that provide verified and rich-content is certainly the best way to achieve this. But again, moms and dads are busy. Not too busy to care, just too busy.
My goal, by creating this blog, is to help you, parents, by sharing useful information that you can easily incorporate into your daily lives and that will benefit you and your children.
Literacy tips, along with my personal experiences as I take this journey as a teacher, writer, and author will be shared regularly, so stay tuned!
