North & South

So since I've moved back my life has been a little chaotic on where stuff is a small town and trying to get my stuff all together. Then there is a small town drama that gets to my husband to easily and I'm already over it but today I'm going to touch politics in a sort also the education system as well.

My dad is home for the weekend and my dad loves shows that have to do with knowledge and my dad and I were talking about history I ended up telling him about my Past Present and Future post. He told me some things about the Civil War that I didn't know about I honestly didn't know that the Civil War wasn't just about slavery. My dad was taught in school that what started it was due to tariff and secession I was shocked why aren't we still being taught this.

So we started watching a mini-series called North and South we've been watching it for at least 2 days now and there was stuff that happened that I've never learned about I mean there's so much information that I've learned and I'm just wowed that I haven't learned about it before why didn't I learn some of this stuff in school.

I love this series because it doesn't sugar coat it plus as a bonus, it has Patrick Swayze. There is so much to be learned here it's ridiculous. I really insist that you watch this show my dad and I have had some interesting conversations over it I don't want to spoil anything but I have to say history might start to repeat it's self.

When I say history repeating it's self I mean racism wouldn't be a problem if we just left it alone. I'm the same as the person next to me we all bleed we have the same organs there is no difference between us.

God created us equal he loves us the same there are multiple verses about it. If you don't believe in God that's fine but we are all equal we are the same we all have the same organs the only difference is some people have a uterus and some don't (I can't remember the term for male parts besides penis)

So I say stop fighting and get your heads out of your @ss I'm not putting a trigger warning because frankly if this offends you get over it. Life isn't going to be perfect things are going to upset you I shouldn't have to put a warning on any of my posts because someone's feelings may get hurt.

I'm not hiding behind my freedom of speech I'm using it and am proud of what I say if I got some facts wrong I'm sorry I do my research as much as I can before and while I type my posts.

More Change....It's Good Though

I know I put it on my podcast but need to let my readers know I am enrolling in college, so I'm cutting back in some areas. My blog is my home and the first project that I have been neglecting horribly, and I apologize I use to use it as a safe place from my ex-husband and where my divorce is finally finalized as of September 19th, 2019. I don't really need a safe place anymore, but I still want to strive to help people, and I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but I need to work on myself before I can genuinely help someone else. Starting tomorrow, October 10th, 2019, my boyfriend and I are going to be working out as a couple. I'm excited because well, as cheesy as it sounds, this is a first for me. I'm making new frists with him; we are going to be Pikachu and Ash Ketchum for Halloween; it's another first for me as well. I've been so happy with my life lately; I almost forgot to keep my passion alive. I know that sounds weird, but it happens life

Mom Life

If you're a mom you might just ask yourself this question almost daily "Am I a bad mom" I know I do and I normally talk to my best friend or my boyfriend about it and why I feel that way. I always get told the same thing by both of them "NO you are not a bad mom you are doing what you can" That is one this every mom needs to remember you're no a bad mom if it's your first child no matter how old they are you're still learning. Every day is a new lesson. You're never truly are on your own when it comes to parenting even if it feels like it at times. As being a human you're constantly learning even if you don't realize it. Just because it's not a big lesson sometimes the smaller ones can be more of an impact than the big ones.  My toddler constantly tests my patience he tries to push me to my breaking point. I get mad but I have to take a deep breath. I know he doesn't understand but sometimes I think he knows exactly what he&#

I really don't know what I want this post to be about, I've talked about unplugging what I'm up to I just won't call writers' block. If  I were to do that though I personally feel like I'd be giving up, I've been racking my head on how to finish out this project I've been working on. I want to tell you, but it's a secret, and I can't wait until everything is done. I will tell you this project is suitable for everyone of any type. I know I've announced that I am now an ambassador for 2 companies, but they still have a couple things in common Craft 1816 and Just Strong. In case you haven't heard of these brands, Craft 1816 is a CBD oil company and is THC free Just Strong is a fitness clothing company based out of the UK. As far as I know from the other ambassadors I've met, they are just really into health or have a form of disability themselves. I haven't met someone with Epilepsy yet. Just Strong believes in mental and physic
