Happy Saturday! With Rene traveling to LA and filming Exhale, we decided to change things up a little and bring you the roundup today. Hope you enjoy!
This week’s Monday Morning Motivation was brought to you with thanks to Facebook and the Golden Globe Awards. Check out Rene’s Monday Morning Motivation: 3 Life Lessons From Kevin Spacey’s Golden Globes Win. Number one is my favorite because I learned at a young age, “if you always do what you always did, you’ll always get what you always got” and that’s the truth!
There is no doubt that there are tough times in all of our lives. Sometimes, it’s just really hard to put a positive spin on them, so Rene gave us 10 From GEM: 10 Things To Learn From Tough Times to help us all keep it in perspective and learn from it.
Suicide and depression are two things that can be so scary. This week, we had a very special lady share her Life Lessons with us. She’s the authored 3 books in hopes to help people who struggle with depression. Please read Life Lessons: Nancy Virden and reach out to her if you need to!
You know that expression a lot of us parents use, “do what I say, not what I do”? Well, sometimes when our kids actually do what we do, we don’t really like it. Be sure to read Single Mom Slice of Life: When Kid Teaches You About Yourself… And You Don’t Like It! for some great perspective on this very thing!
Rene talks a lot about how important follow-through is with everything from parenting to our jobs. In this week’s Ask Rene: My Husband Made A Promise To Our Daughter That We Can’t Keep! Help!, read her advice to a parent who used a touch of bribery to motivate a child and then couldn’t follow through with the reward.
In this month’s Pixie Dust Central, I thought I’d show you all how to stay in-the-know with Disney Parks! If you’re looking to plan a vacation or just want to bring some of the magic home, check out Pixie Dust Central: 5 Ways To Stay Current With Disney Parks In The New Year.
I always enjoy Julixa’s honest opinions and her frankness! Tales From A Twin Mom: Conversation No Nos For Moms is no different! This week, she gave some fantastic pointers on discussions that we as moms need to tread softly. I love passionate people, but sometimes, it’s better to zip it. Julixa’s advice is fabulous and if you’ve ever been in a sticky conversation with a friend or acquaintance before, this is a great piece you won’t want to miss!
Hope you enjoyed the roundup and that all of you have a great weekend!
