Birth Order and Personality

They often say depending on your birth order shapes what your personality traits will be.  As I read this article I definitely got a chuckle.  Although my youngest are twin girls, they still fit into the common traits of birth order.  I also see my sisters three kids in these examples as well.  It is interesting to read, check it out for yourself!

The Invasion of Clutter!

How does it happen? I am sure there are other moms out there that can relate.  Things get busy and you don't clean really well for a week or maybe two :)  Or you have great weather on the weekend and you spent your designated "cleaning time" outside and the house cleaning fairy did not come by to pay you a visit while you were out.

You turn around and before you know it you have been invaded by clutter.  You think "how did it happen so quickly?".  It is like a fast growing bacteria that multiplies and takes over your house and only moms have the special magnifying glasses to see it.  Does this happen to you and what antibiotic do you use?

Self Development Series ~ Building Confidence

What Does Your Inner Voice Say to YOU?

Are you often your biggest critic when something does not go exactly as planned?  That inner voice can be a harsh sometimes.  In certain situations, I find myself thinking the worst outcome before I know what it is.  When I read this article, I could really relate to this woman's experience.  I could see myself in the words she she was speaking.

This author used an example of a job interview that did not go so well.  She had begun to blame herself immediately. The pessimistic inner voice about herself took over which included dialog that she was not good enough and other candidates must be more qualified than she was.  When she looked at it through a more optimistic lens, the interview did not go well simply because it was not a good fit for either side.  When it is a good fit you connect with the person your interviewing with and in return you are generally more confident and secure and you come across that way.

 Follow these simple steps to change your inner voice!
