By Andrea Robinson | December 30, 2019 | Comments Off on Try This…Practice Makes Progress

[social _warfare] “Practice Makes Perfect” I grew up hearing this and now I am determined to change the meaning. It drives home the idea that PERFECT will be waiting at the end of your practice. Here we are, a new year upon us and many of you are getting ready to set some big goals.…

Losing Someone Near the Holidays Sucks

By Andrea Robinson | December 16, 2019 |

Last week my baby…well she is 7 but still my baby, Caylee, was playing in my closet and pulled out a pair of pink slippers. “Mama, I love these!” “I do too, Caylee.” I muttered as tear filled my eyes quickly. I forgot I had them stashed in my closet. They have so many memories…

You know I don’t love the ‘B’ word…shhhh…don’t say it. You know ahem…budget.😬😬 But I have been living on a cash flow plan, a cooler way to say ‘budget’ without saying it. Basically, since 2011, when we went totally BROKE, we have created a plan for our money and stuck to it every month since…

I hate this but it has taught me this…

Time flies when you’re having fun…isn’t that what they say?! But really…why is it as we get older there is a sense we are attached to a time machine and catapulted to the future??? And then all of a sudden we feel Marty McFly in Back to the Future – except we don’t have that…

I still ride shotgun on the struggle bus when it comes to caring about what others think. There. I said it. If you are truthful and honest, you likely still combat that too, right? Have I made big strides of not giving one flying color what other people think? Absolutely. But when I don’t practice…

Loving the hard to love….it is REALLY hard for me.

A couple of years ago I read the book Everybody Always by Bob Goff and I will say it changed me in the best way. Why? Because it forced me to look at my struggles and he called me out on what I am not great at….loving the hard to love. Here’s the honest truth…I…

So……..I am the biggest control freak ever. Like ever. I know, it’s embarrassing to admit but in my head I still think I am the controller of all the things.

November 17th, 2011: a big day for our family. I remember walking into Bank of America and paying off the note to our last loan. We did it. 52k in consumer debt, gone. We did something that was not too popular, supported at the time and definitely weird to some. It was a day we…
