    Using Logs to Record Progress

    Hi, This is interesting. I don’t know that there is really an issue with logging things if it makes you feel like it keeps you on task. Yea, they say things will become habit after 21 days but some people just need that extra motivation and I don’t think anything is wrong with that. However if...

    "The Future is Female"

    I like this quote a lot. It immediately makes me think of the fact that my husband and I are raising our girls while I work on finishing my Masters. I am working so hard to make sure that I am a good inspiration to show my girls that women need to have the ability to stand on their own. That’s...

    Apps for depression/anxiety and growth

    I have this same issue and have been struggling to find something to help control it without adding more medication. I honestly never thought of using an app. That is a very good idea.

Since I am a stay at home...

    Help with Social Media/Phone Addiction

    Hi, I am sorry you are dealing with this. My husband and I argue about this a lot. He comments on it about me and I comment about him. For me the reason I do it is for a few different reasons. One is boredom (say in the show we are watching), two is feeling uncomfortable especially if we are...

    Quitting full-time job and freelancing for full-time income

    I quit my full time job when my first child was born 3 years ago. Within the last year I began online tutoring and babysitting for extra income. This is my first try at freelance since I don’t have a portfolio of any sorts. Since I began staying home I’ve thought many times about freelancing but...

The first one is that an explanation of...
