Letter To My Children

To My Children, I look at you and I see joy, innocence, happiness and pure undying love. Your little faces can instantly lighten up the dimmest of days. You are filled with life, never lose that. You mean the world to me and you won’t quite understand my love for you until you have kids…

Life Lessons: Grief

Life Writes with Tiffany

If you would have asked me six months ago what grief means I would have given you some vague shallow answer because then I did not quite know what it was. My only images of grief at that time were from tear jerker movies and when my 79 year old grandpa died when I was 14.

December 14, 2017 changed a lot for me. In fact in changed my whole world. I remember wondering why my mom was calling me at 5AM. Just so you know I hate mornings, so I answered in a groggy and sleepy tone, probably still in a daze from one of my dreams the previous night.

“Your Dad isn’t breathing. The ambulance is on the way.”

I hung up the phone and went downstairs. I did not really know what to do so I thought about taking the kids to school. Wait, that didn’t make…

Growing Pains

Life Writes with Tiffany

Being uncomfortable builds character, integrity, endurance and strength. It’s more than okay to not have what you want all the time. It’s okay to feel pain and all the different emotions and problems that come with life. These instances make us who we are. These circumstances make us stronger.

It’s okay to STRUGGLE. This builds perseverance. You can’t get what you want all the time, and you shouldn’t. The times in life where we’re uncomfortable and really have to think and plan for a way to come out on top makes us better people.

Take a deep breath and LEARN from this circumstance. Whatever it may be there is a lesson to be learned, a take away to carry with you always. Life isn’t a sprint it’s a marathon. That’s what my dad would always say.

Sometimes the worst parts of life bring forth the greatest and most true form…

Later Never Comes

Life Writes with Tiffany

Are you one of those people who says “Oh I’ll just do this later” or “Now isn’t the right time”. I admit sometimes I use those excuses when I shouldn’t. Honestly no one should because guess what? Later may NEVER COME. We only have one life to live and if we hold everything off until the time is “right” then our dreams, goals, and aspirations will never happen.

The whole concept of holding anything off until the time is “right” is bogus because the time will NEVER be right and you’ll be stuck making endless excuses to defend the excuse that the time is not right. We don’t plan everything in our lives, I mean hell we don’t really plan much of anything in our lives. Life just sort of happens, but that’s the beauty of it.

Some people hold off on finishing their degree, going on that vacation, charity…
