Let it Go, Let it Go! Life Lesson #44

We are going to let it go. Let it go with this life lesson. It’s a good life lesson to adhere to and the sooner you learn to let it go, the better off you’ll be. There are different ways of letting it go, too. We’ll talk about that in a minute. First, you need to know one very important piece of this: you cannot control people, places, things – only your reaction to them. Once you realize this step, the rest should be easy.

My Daughter – 8 Things You Should Know

My Daughter – 8 Things You Should Know

My daughter went through a pretty traumatic time this past Summer. And though I tend toward the positive in my writing and posting, I have had this title in my queue for quite some time. Her dealing of all this tragedy has not been without its frustration (for both of us) and I expect we will be mucking through the fallout for a while longer. And while I probably won’t share a lot of detail about this ridiculously heart-wrenching, confusing, and just plain awful time, this post is … Read more…


Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Happy Birthday, Daddy. Today is my Dad’s birthday. If he were still here on earth, I imagine we’d be celebrating in some fabulous style. I am honoring him today by putting it out there, maybe he subscribes to the blog from way up there. Happy Birthday, Daddy. When you are young, you don’t think about your parents not being around forever. I certainly didn’t think I’d lose both my parents before I turned 30. As I reflect on the last 20+ years (since my father has passed), I … Read more…


Assuming the Worst – Life Lesson #111

Assuming the Worst – Life Lesson #111

Assuming the worst seems to be such a worthless endeavor, though we all do it, sometimes. Well. Fine. I won’t speak for all of us. But assuming on anyone or any one thing does happen. And it’s worthless. We haven’t had a life lesson in some time here on Informed Sharing. And while the title for this post was not originally a life lesson (more of a “this is what happened this summer”), I figured we could all use a good life lesson and assuming the worst (or … Read more…

My Biggest Pet Peeve – and how I learned to let go!

I’m going to tell you what my biggest pet peeve is, but before I do that, I have to give you a glimpse of what has been going on in my little slice of the world. I can honestly say that only a few years ago, I’d be losing my mind trying to right this; but I have learned to let go, harder than it looks, but well worth it. This summer has been a difficult one, more so for the kiddo than me. Unfortunately, it has not … Read more…

Fathers: The Household Heroes – 6 Ways to Say Thank You

Fathers: The Household Heroes – 6 Ways to Say Thank You

No family is complete without a father. It is a common opinion that mothers are to have the most impact on the children’s life since they spend the most time with them. However, we forget that the role of a father is also important. A child needs the attention of both parents and both roles complement the actions of each other. Every year, on the third Sunday of June, the world celebrates Father’s Day. It is a day where we can honor the role of a father. Thousands around … Read more…

A Look Back on Informed Sharing…

A Look Back on Informed Sharing…

It is hard to believe that Informed Sharing just passed it’s 5 year mark. I almost didn’t realize it, until I took a moment the other day to reflect on all that has happened since beginning this blog. There were a couple years in there that it sat dormant, either because I was pursuing other passions, or because I was physically unable to work it. And so. Here we are. I will not be here this week, other to than to post this and try to do some … Read more…


Your Moment of Zen

Your Moment of Zen

I need a moment of Zen. I figured that maybe you do too. It’s Friday and I thought I was prepared for the week – with the kiddo home from school (Spring Break) and Monday’s posts done for all three blogs. Going into the week? I was feeling pretty darn confident that I could work AND spend time with the kiddo. Yah. No. I’ll spare you the details. But. It’s Friday and I am behind. Seems I am always just a moment or two behind. I need a … Read more…
