habits quoteWhat is a Habit?..

Date: March 12, 2019 | Time: 9:12am

HABITS! Positive or Negative in development. Really, we probably all have some of both! Ever notice that negative habits seem easier to establish and more difficult to break? Whereas, positive habits tend to be a bit more challenging to start and super easy to break! Have you ever thought about WHY? Both require a lifestyle change, and that is usually a little more than any of us have time for, right?! I have never really considered habits at all.... <view entire article>

life is creating yourself quote 1Creating Yourself..

Date: February 7, 2019 | Time: 2:30pm

At some point I think we have all asked ourselves, "Why am I here?" "What is my purpose?" Am I wrong? Am I the only one that finds myself asking these questions? As the quote above says, Life is not about finding yourself. It's about creating yourself. I feel like a lot of people have spent the better part of their lives "finding themselves" and not creating themselves. This is where I have found myself many times. It is within.... <view entire article>

GOALRinging the New Year..

Date: January 1, 2019 | Time: 8:32pm

As I was wrapping up 2018 I began thinking about what I did right in 2018 and what I could have done better. Reflecting on 2018 made me start thinking about what I wanted for myself in 2019. In the past I have made New Years resolutions and as it turns out they haven't worked out so well for me. I make them and then at the first of the year I am all "gung ho" then......the excitement wears off.... <view entire article>

Letting Go..

Date: May 10, 2017 | Time: 5:00am

This has been a year of letting go. Letting go of things both willingly and unwillingly. Letting go can be difficult for some of us so we tend to avoid it. The question I ask myself is why is it so hard to let go of things? There are even things that I hold onto that I know are not good for me whether it be relationships, material things, or even feelings for that matter. I find myself being cluttered.... <view entire article>

As I reflect upon 2016 there are definitely things that I could have done better. I feel like I was lost the majority of the year. I lost my way. I had no direction, no goals, and no discipline to get anything done. I did a lot of reading, thinking, and reflection. Now it is a new year and I am ready for a new me. When I think of 2017 I know I will not make New Year resolutions. I.... <view entire article>

As written by Jenny Poor Warning: Be advised there is sensitive material at the bottom. On January 7th 2016, I found out I had round worms. This came as a surprise to me, as I consider myself to be a clean person. After doing further research, I learned that most people probably have parasites. If you eat out; if you have indoor pets; if you live on a farm; if you get dirty river or lake water in your.... <view entire article>

Confessions of a Mom..

Date: August 9, 2015 | Time: 6:22pm

This is written by Jenny Poor. I am going to admit a wrong doing that I did 6 1/2 years ago. This confession isn't so you will feel sorry for me or so you can tell me that it is ok. My reasoning behind all of this is so hopefully I can shed some light on the effects of poor choices moms sometimes make. On November 18, 2008 I gave birth to a handsome, funny, quirky, empathetic, wonderful, awesome little.... <view entire article>
