Mission Statement and Purpose

As a stay-at-home mom, I think I fall into a large category of women who lose a little bit of their self-worth by 'just staying home.'  I often feel like I need to be out conquering the world, making my mark and changing it for the better. I feel in order to do it, I must go outside my front door, get a job and participate in the world.   I remind my self that staying home and raising my child is doing just that, but I often lack that bridge of really feeling like I am.  I decided I needed to feel like I am

I am trying to rent the shackles that bind me to my bad habits while I am at home.  I am trying to anxiously engage myself in a good cause-- a cause that makes my home and my world a better place. 

In order to do that, I wanted to create a place where I could record the these I do-- the things I am doing to develop my talents, serve others, raise my little boy, and engage myself in wholesome things.  I wanted it to be someplace I could get to easily and review easily.  And then it struck me that I should be sharing these things to. I know that in my circle of friends and family, we could all use a little reminder, a few good ideas and a refresher of the good things we do and can do. 

So, here it is.  What I am doing to anxiously engage myself in a good cause.
