My Life In Words

People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.  When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly.  They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually.  They may seem like a godsend, and they are.  They are there for the reason you need them to be.  Then, without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.  Sometimes they die.  Sometimes they walk away.  Sometimes they act up or out and force you to take a stand.  What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled;  their work is done.  The prayer you sent up has been answered and it is now time to move on.

When people come into your life for a SEASON, it is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn.  They may bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.  They may teach you something you have never done.  They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.  Believe it!  It is real!  But, only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.  Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person/people (anyway);  and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.  It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

one of my most popular entries has to do with unisom while nursing….it gets numerous hits every day! hundreds total since it was posted actually! (

so i thought this too may be helpful to others!

i am dealing with insomnia (for years),and have a 9 wek old son. i didn’t need ANY assistance with sleeping until he was about 4 weeks old….the first month i still had so many hormones and was just plain non functioning from sheer exhaustion and constant nursing that i easily fell asleep. and since he woke so frequently i was worried about taking anything that wouldn’t allow me to easily wake to his hunger cues.i LOVE the release of oxytocin when i nurse my son-it really does help to relax my body and even still if he is nursing a lot that day i will fall asleep at the drop of a hat during our nursing sessions! lol

but after that first month,i no longer could easily fall asleep,nor stay asleep. it was effecting every aspect of my life. so i looked into melatonin. it is *SAFE* to take while nursing. there is a lot of differing information in the cyber world so you shouldask your own doctor or pharmacist if you are unsure-like i did! 😉 it is wise to wait until your baby is a few weeks old before you take ANYTHING for sleep. the most important factor to remember is it must be a low dose!! i’d suggest nothing over 3mg!! and only one per night(of course!)!! once you go into higher mg you risk your baby feeling some effects as well. you should start with even 1mg at first to see if it will help you,then go up from there but not over 3mg!!

melatonin is naturally produced within your body but some people just don’t have enough. i’d suggest NOT taking it unless you plan to be in bed for at least 5 hours…whether that time is spent resting or sleeping….because i can assure you i’ve not gotten 5 hours of straight sleep in months! 😉

july/august 2009 were very rough for me. i checked myself into a treatment center for partial hospitalization-which just means you sit in a room with a bunch of other confused(lol)individuals for about 6hrs monday thru friday for a few weeks, talking about all sorts of lovely things….

on your last day they have a special ritual of sorts where a neat coin is passed around as each person says something positive about you and how they feel about you as a person. i’d forgotten about my coin til it just appeared on my computer desk when i was looking for my business cards.

one side says: I AM POWERLESS BUT NOT HELPLESS, the flip side states  WE CANT CONTROL THE DIRECTION OF THE WIND BUT WE CAN ADJUST OUR SAILS…. just thought it re appeared with good timing and i wanted to share what it said….even tho i think i did last august too! lol

my sails need a serious kick in the ass! 😉

do you tweet,twitter, or heck are you a twit? then ADD ME!! my handle is asqueakyfoot -just like that, no spaces!! can’t wait to connect! i don’t guarantee anything majorly mind blowing, but hey-take a chance ya just might like it!! 😉
