Marriage & happiness??


If you’ve asked yourself how to become a happier person, this is already a very good sign. Happiness is not something that happens to us by chance. Being happy is an achievable and learnable skill, which requires constant work on your attitude and depends on how you interpret your life situation. Happiness is largely a matter of choice. And it is probably the smartest life choice you can make. Recent studies show that happy people are 35% less likely to die early than unhappy ones! I am not going to lie since my seperation from my husband my life hit an all time low...I mean low is putting it mildly... The kids constantly crying, teacher meetings to tell me that two of my daughters cry when they think of Mommy and Daddy not being together and being a family.... Any sane mother, would go INSANE after that. I cried and still do! Do not feel as though ok 6 months went by time to get over it.

No no no....I still cry...Almost EVERYDAY... But you have to come to a realization point... (which is something I learned in a course I took at Yale with Dr. Santos, called the psychology of true happiness... try it!! turned my outlook all around, I found that course with many others on Coursea.com) And here is the realization point: " if you are going to lay down and give up?... Let your kids see you struggle and pretty much die inside??????, OR take what has happened WEAR THAT SH*T, and pick yourself up!!! Dust Off, and fight for your happiness. Learn to love yourself...Because as Corny as it sounds you really have to know and LOVE YOURSELF before you can ever give that kind of devotion to anyone else...Now, if you and your partner do not love each other anymore, and can look at each other in the eye and truly mean it..... than by all means Walk with your head held high and take it as a learning experience, and just focus on your children.

Learn new things, try new things and as the transformation of yourself happens your tears will lessen and lessen...But if there is any part of you that thinks your marriage or relationship especially with Children can be salvaged, than GIRL, JUMP RIGHT IN AND DON'T LOOK BACK! Both of you go in slate clean as bad as it has been or was, and keep your family together. But ALSO the only way to do that is to transform yourself to a strong women and mother...A not so much different women or mother just an all around more knowledgeable, confident and strong... I am only speaking from my own personal situations. I love my husband. That was never the issue. The issues were many things on my part and his. But if you are going to keep your family together as your new transformed self, YOU HAVE TO LET THE PAST GO!! It will eat at you if you don't and you will end up back to square one with the waterfall full of tears everyday. I am still a work in progress, I feel like I am almost there. ALMOST. And when that time comes is when I will have to look at my husband and say we vowed through the GOOD, the BAD and the UGLY...I am stronger and wiser from the past, I want my family together and an absolute 100% clean SLATE and be a family.,(And when I say family I mean just YOU , YOUR SPOUSE AND CHILDREN AS ONE TEAM!! No one else, YOUR FAMILY)...or we are going to have to look at each other and say F*ck It...either way it is another kind of like badge to WEAR that makes you , YOU!! So if you can save your marriage and family DO IT!!! Everyone makes mistakes, everyone falls and gets hit, but you have to be able to get hit and get back up..

Remember your children never asked to be brought into this world, let alone have a family one minute and then it is taken away because two grown adults can't get it together.....I will never forget the last nine months of my husband moving out of the house, the tears, every night especially my son crying and begging for his dad to come sleep with us...Or the time my oldest daughter (which I truly think it has effected her more than I will ever know) had all her friends over since I was over compensating any and everything for them because I know the heartbreak they were in so did everything every day to keep them busy, but back to the quick story...She had her friends over for a sleep over and I heard one of her friends ask her (Because she was looking at a picture of my husband and all the kids I had on the wall) " You have a Dad??" And my daughter says with this tone of utter shock her friend just asked her that, say "YES I have a Dad", he just travels for work, but my parents aren't divorced or anything!! Heartbreak is not even the word, I had to walk outside for a good ten minutes to get myself together.

Looking back at those gut wrenching times and still do make you stronger as a mother, wife and women. Oh does it kill you, .But once you know yourself, all your flaws, mistakes, and grow from it, This is the part when marriage/relationships will have the ability not only to make it but to make it stronger and better than ever..., but YOU took that VOW..So I will say it once more, if you have gone through the process' of getting to know your full self and love yourself and transformed there should be nothing or anything that can brake your relationship. It is going to take time, and work...Try and act as if you two were dating at the begining...You know the little things. The little cute texts, or notes....I still have every single note my husband ever wrote me...Even the one on napkins..LOL...As I get closer to the end of this journey of finding true authentic happiness and love for myself, except the trial and mistakes I made. Own them, I guess we shall see.... but every Psychologist in the world will tell you what a Divorce or Break up does to a child... So own it, accept it, get over it, stick it out...or Walk away with your head and Crown Held High, Have gratitude for the beautiful child/ children you have and on to the NEXT....<3

Sometimes It Is What It is


I don't care how tough of a parent you want to be, when your kid(s) look at you with those hurting eyes, your heart is breaking.  No matter why the hurt is there...  As a parent, you want to take every ounce of pain, disappointment, sadness and any other negative emotion they have to face.  You want to face that emotion for them.  You want to shield them from it.  You want to prevent it at any cost.  And when you are not able to do that, and you have to see that hurt in your child's eyes.... DEFEAT!

I don't know about you, but seeing my kid(s) hurt, for any reason, eats a hole in my heart and soul.  Even when it's because I'm disciplining them.  Just because you have to do it, doesn't mean it doesn't hurt you.  Growing up my mom would say, "This is going to hurt me more than it's gonna hurt you."  As a kid I thought, "Well then why would you do it?" or "Yeah Right!"

Mom, I understand now.

One thing I can say, communication will help to sort through this.  No matter what the situation is.  And sometimes just the specific words you utilize can make all the difference in the world.  

Check out these great lists of substitute words to help with your hard conversations with your kid(s):

11 Ways to Keep the Spark Alive in Your Marriage

As time goes by, the spark you and your partner had in the beginning may fade. Life gets so busy and repetitive that we sometimes forget to make time to keep the spark alive. It really doesn’t take that much time, though, and can be so beneficial to your relationship. Whether you and your spouse have already lost the spark or if you are just afraid of it happening, here are 11 ways to keep the spark alive or bring the spark back.
I promise it’s easier than it sounds so just read these and try to implement them in your daily lives.
How to Keep the Spark Alive (or get it back) in Your Marriage

  1. Show them love, all day. This starts in the morning. Smile and kiss them (yes, even with morning breath) as soon as you wake up next to them in the morning. Let them know you’re happy to wake up next to them. Do things like this throughout the day.
  2. Hug, hold hands, and kiss often. These are simple actions that can make so much of a difference. You’ll feel more connected to your spouse when you hold hands, kiss, or hug. Do it in the car, while sitting on the couch, when you walk past each other in the hallway, and any other time your hands are free or you can lean in for a little kiss. Do it whenever there is an opportunity. If you do, that spark is sure to stay (or come back).
  3. Do little things for each other. Make the coffee if you get to the kitchen first. Send a cute text message to tell your spouse you are thinking of them if you’re away all day. Take over with the kids if they’ve had them all day. Make dinner. Get them a drink. It’s easy to be thoughtful.
  4. Tell them when they look hot! Letting your spouse know that you’re still attracted to them is definitely an easy way to help keep that spark alive (or bring it back).
  5. Don’t wear sweatpants every day. I know, I know .. we all want to. Think back, though, did you wear them all the time at the beginning of the relationship? I know I didn’t! When my husband fell in love with me I dressed cute in things that flattered me, wore makeup, and did my hair. Now, obviously I don’t do these things EVERYDAY but I do make sure I do it often.
  6. Cuddle. Even if it’s just for 2 minutes in between the kids asking for something. Even that short amount of time lets your partner know you’re wanting to spend time and love on them, and it’s also a nice reminder to you of how much you need that.
  7. Ask about their day. It lets them know you care. Listen to how their day went and ask more questions as necessary. If they’ve had a rough day ask if there is anything you can do to make it better. Be that person for them.
  8. Random touches. When you walk past your partner in the kitchen, touch them when you do. Even if it’s just a slight rub on their arm or a hand around their waste. Again, these little things are necessary.
  9. Sex. This one is obvious but so important. Your spouse needs to connect with you on this deeper, more intimate level. (pureromance.com/ashleygentile )
  10. Appreciate your spouse. Tell them how lucky you are to have them, or thank them for doing the dishes.
  11. Laugh together. Watch a comedian, play a funny game, or watch funny YouTube videos together. Nothing can lighten up a relationship like a good laugh.
  12. I know this was only supposed to be 11 ways to keep the spark alive, but I’m giving you a BONUS suggestion. Learn your spouse’s love language. This sounds silly, I know, but we all have different love languages and it’s so much easier to give your spouse the love they NEED when you know what their love language is. I’ve read this book The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts several times now and I learn something new every time. My husband’s love language is definitely physical touch while I need Words of Affirmation. Check out the book, you won’t be sorry.

HOST A PAINT PARTY FOR KIDS

HOST A MEMORABLE PAINTING PARTY FOR KIDS-THE SIMPLE WAY <3

  • Gather a few materials in advance of your party:
  • fresh paints (choose washable options for kids)
  • paper plates for paint
  • new paintbrushes
  • canvases (high quality paper that can be framed is good too, but I can attest that there’s a magical ‘big kid’ appeal when you give a child the opportunity to create on a real canvas)
  • water (for cleaning brushes)
  • paper towels for cleanup
  • easels
  • Paint palettes can be found at many craft and supply stores (both the classic wooden oval variety and plastic palettes with divided wells), but if you want an even more cost-effective option, use paper plates. For added appeal, use an utility knife to cut a circle as a thumb hole in your palette.
  • Easels are another must-have that can be hard to find affordably when you need multiples. To allow seven kids to simultaneously paint on the 11" x 14" canvases, I built a long easel ledge that extended the full length of the table. I used bolts, dowels and scrap 1 x 2 boards to assemble the easel.
  • Find an assortment of paintbrushes for your guests, and don’t underestimate how many the kids will manage to use in a single painting party. Be on stand-by to help rinse the brushes too, to minimize post-party clean-up and keep the utensils from drying out with paint on the brushes.
  • Choose a theme for the night, and encourage the kids to paint to that theme. Another popular option is to select a single, professional work of art and allow the kids to replicate it in their own style.
  • Helpful tips:

    Sketch with pencil first! This will help kids plan and execute their vision.

  • Keep a hair dryer in the room. Blast the artwork periodically to help expedite the paint dry time so that colors can be layered without smudging together.

  • Be sure each child puts their name on their finished art – either on the wooden frame on which the canvas is attached, or in the lower corner on the front.

  • At the end of the party, make some beautiful memories and don’t forget to take a photo with all of the kids standing together, displaying their artwork.

 Forget Your Past, Forgive Yourself, And Begin Again Right Now! Great Read on How to get "YOU" back to "YOU"



  • For example, ask yourself these questions.

  • How many hours in a day do you spend being angry, anxious, dissatisfied, or unhappy? 
  • How much time do you spend actually connecting with a loved one as opposed to just being in the same room as them?
  •  How much time do you plan for improving yourself each day, or each week?
  •  How many hours of your life do you spend doing things you don't enjoy for reasons that you don't really understand?
  •  We sleep on average 6-8 hours a night, but how many hours are quality rest?
  •  How many, then.. are just wasted lying in bed?
