Family : M.I.L.F Open Discussion

The Jackson Family
(l-r) Serenity (4), Trevon (14), Me (duh!) and 'The Hubs' Demeatrius
Good morning Loves!  We've arrived to the end of our M.I.L.F open discussion.  The last installment of this series is 'Family'.  As I prepped for this post I had to research the meaning of family.  Sharing my personal view on what I believe family to be without knowing the true definition is a definite no, no.  So as I do with a lot of things I went to trusty old Merriam to ask her opinion!  To my surprise the first definition supported my personal view, as defined a family is "a group of individuals living under one roof and usually under one head," (Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary 2015).

Before my Husband and children I considered my family to be my parents, siblings, niece and nephew even though we weren't living under one roof this was my family.  Fast forward to the present, I now have a family.  In the past 5 years of this new found life many of my views have changed and beliefs put into perspective.  I've learned a lot being in this new found role and today I'm going to share some of those things:

1.  Base the decisions you make according to what's best for your family
2.  Marriage isn't meant to be perfect, it's an ongoing learning process that needs constant attention and prayer
3.  Express yourself whether it be good or bad, no one can read your mind
4.  Communication is key!  (I think we all know it to be true but refuse to do it)
5.  Your children don't care about how much you spend, it's the memory you create that sticks
6.  Your core beliefs, morals and values shaped who you are, never allow anyone or anything to change it or take it away
7.  It's okay to be different
8.  Love yourself
9.  Take that one week vacation, life goes on
10.  And lastly, don't hold on to negative energy, let it go and replace it with something positive

Until next time Loves...
