Why My 14th Month Journey Has Been Wonderful!

Well, I am now in month fourteen of my fourteen month journey and I am so grateful for this journey! Very grateful. I have experienced a lot and yes, learned a lot. I guess now I can give this journey a title ~ Designing My Purpose! Yes, Designing My Purpose because that is exactly what I have done and accomplished. I am grateful for the challenges, struggles, victories and success. They have made me even better than before and just added further strength to MY story of MY glory!

~ Kimberly Wright ~

~ Kimberly Wright ~

You often have heard me state “If you only knew my story…” and “Beauty for my ashes…” and “This too shall pass…” and “I did not know my own strength…” which soon I will began to share exactly what those mean to me and to tell my stories. People often hear of my health challenges and ask “So when is the book coming?” and I truly do not have an answer nor a good response because the book(s) should have been written a million times over. Then I put the hardest questions to myself during my private time and ask the Who, What, When, Where and Why which leads to so many other stories which need to be shared to help others and lighten my load. This load gets REALLY heavy often and I find myself running from myself because I cannot believe how I have let people get away with murder regarding me. Hmph… People know me or know of me for so many different reasons, seasons, things, gossips or truths however no one and I do mean no one actually knows my truths and that is what I plan to share from now till at least 2025 because they are MY stories to share! I have a lot to say and share and since I have been designing my purpose, letting go, reorganizing my life and creating my new peace. Once again I finally know the why and how to proceed accordingly in all aspects of my life.

14th Month Journey Graphic

So I cannot wait till January 2015 when the big reveal begins to happen! It will be epic and phenomenal at the same damn time! Do not believe me? Just watch! I am so looking forward to moving in purpose and silence.

Santa Baby Have You Seen This Cannon EOS Rebel T5I? #CanonatBestBuy #HintingSeason

Disclosure: Yes, I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card for this review. All opinions shared are 100% my own.

I have been in the market for a new camera for some time. I have not purchased a camera brand new since the 90’s when I became a mother. Yes, the 90’s. I have just been purchasing my cameras from two local pawn shops and honestly that has been working well for me until I became a blogger and self-proclaimed Wordsmith. At that point pawn shop cameras just did not work anymore for my red carpet opportunities and all. So I took Tammie Reed of Talking With Tammi advice. One of the first things she shared at her blogging event in 2012 was “Invest in yourself by investing in a good camera. Let go of your camera phone and point and shoot cameras. They will not take you seriously” That was some of the most golden pieces of advice I was given on this journey. Then as I started engaging in my blogger opportunities and FAM trips I quickly discovered Tammi was so right. My little point and shot camera and my ever changing camera phone was just not the cutting it. So after about two years of being in denial and observing fellow bloggers, Wordsmith’s and photographers produce amazing beautiful pictures I started taking brand names, noting what I wanted and watching the sales. Who knew cameras now can come with Wi-Fi! How cool is that? Well after much soul searching the Cannon EOS Rebel T5i probably going to be a gift for my daddy! He does not need the Wi-Fi and it will be perfect for him.

Happy 12/13/14!

~ Happy 12/13/14! ~

~ Happy 12/13/14! ~

Happiest 12/13/14! I bet there are a lot of weddings today. Why? Well, the date is so cute and it is the last sequential date of the century. Yes, that is correct. Today is the last sequential date of the century and being that I am really into numerology today should be special for you as well. There is much joy in numerology and knowing how it truly works. The fabric of knowing when too and when not too. I will share that in a later post on the blog. You see I love numerology and have since the 80’s when “I got it!” I had a ball with the dates of 8/9/10, 9/10/11, 10/11/12, 11/12/13 and now 12/13/14. So make today special because it is special just because it is the last sequential date of the century.

Enjoy~

Introducing Brackitz ~ The New Old Way To Play!

Brackitz~Logo

You know how I LOVE the babies! As I have been out and about this holiday season preparing to gift a few items to family and friends I recently ran across a unique new toy called Brackitz. Now please note I have not received anything for compensation or in kind regarding this product. I am simply sharing because I love the back to the basics of Brackitz. Brackitz stands out to me because it is an award-winning construction toy system produced in the USA so this immediately got my attention. I completely support products made in the USA. Also, this is refreshing because not only is it made in the USA it is also technology free. Yes, I love technology however I firmly believe kids today do not know how to function without technology so this was a winner for me as well. Our babies need to learn how to entertain themselves with and without technology.

Much like Legos and Knex they require cognitive thinking, reasoning and problem solving while playing however what makes them stand out even more is the old school of wooden planks which interlock allowing them to create and develop architectural structures. It is really a nice concept.

Brackitz-Toy-System-In-Action

According to their website what really makes Brackitz different is the following:

Educational – Brackitz proudly promotes STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) techniques for young children to learn as they get older. Perfect for classroom use too!

Affordable – Choose from sets including 50, 100 and 200 pieces, with prices ranging from $29.95 – $99.95.

Build Up AND Out – Brackitz can be used to construct innumerable creations; the one-of-a-kind connectors can interlock at different angles and directions and allow children to build circles, corners and bendable masterpieces.

Durable – While traditional stacking blocks collapse under pressure, Brackitz allow children to build structures as big as they are without falling over. You can even move them around the house and your pets can roam free without causing a falling mess.

Safe – Brackitz have been tested and are compliant with the Consumer Product Safety Commission for ages 3+.

Brackitz has proudly won Brain Toy from Academics Choice, Toy Man eChoice, STEM Toy Award, and Creative Child Toy of the Year.

So if you are still shopping for gifts this holiday season please consider this one for ages three to ten. I really think this is a winner.
