Daily Prompt: The People Around Me Are My Mentors


Daily Prompt: Cheering Section

Do you have a mentor?
Tell us about him or her.
Are you a mentor to someone else?
Tell us what that relationship has added to your life.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us SUPPORT.

world

This was a prompt that for some reason took a lot of thought for me.
I wrote about another topic on the day that it came out and just gave it time to slowly stew in my brain.
Even thought it is an interesting topic, it crosses a personal line where I might have to name a few individuals.

Since I do not like to pinpoint any one person (except my hubby, on occasion) I was hesitant to begin.
During the course of time that I have had to think about it, I have come to realize that the people that I come into contact with are my mentors.

I sit and listen to what they have to say.
I listen in a way that does not require a response.
That took me a long time to learn to do.
I have found that by doing that, I do learn from them various topics that I might never have known.

There are times when I am tempted to give a response, yet I refrain and wait.
By doing this, I have found that I learn so much more about that person and what makes them tick.

I then have the ability to ask questions about them.  I am able to clarify what I did not comprehend.
To be able to truly learn from another will make us stronger as an individual.  It helps us to nurish our relationships.

To really hear what someone has to say and not be biased is sometimes very difficult.
To allow them to have that moment to speak and feel that what they have to say is truly important does make a difference.
The other persons opinion might not be on the same track as mine, however their right to sound their thoughts and see the drive that has brought them to where their conviction is makes it worthwhile.

Conflict in life is not necessary.  Life is precious.  Life is so short.  We can all be gone in an instant.

Sometimes it is better to just stay in a peace mode and “Let It Be”

If it really will not make a difference ten years from now, is it worth getting upset about today?
Some of the conflicts in relationships could be easier if that policy were developed.
If we really listen to what the other person feels and not what is coming out of their mouth, we will begin to feel their passion and drive also.

Life is a mystery, make it feel like home.

Weekly Writing Challenge: Dear TammyeHoney


pooky12

Weekly Writing Challenge: Dear ____________________

by Erica on October 28, 2013

To participate, tag your post with DPchallenge and include a link to this post, to generate a pingback and help others find the challenges. Please make sure your post has been specifically written in response to this challenge. We’ll highlight some of our favorites on Freshly Pressed on Friday, and in our monthly newsletter.

For this week’s writing challenge, channel your inner Abigail Von Buren. Experiment with the question and answer format. Taking inspiration from a question you’ve been asked recently, whether in conversation with a friend or sent in from a reader, don your best counselor hat and share your expertise.

Not up for kickstarting your career as an advice columnist? We’ve got a few more ways to help get you involved with this week’s focus on advice.

  • What’s the best, or worst, piece of advice you’ve ever gotten?
  • You’re the most important writer in the world, and everyone will be tuning in to your blog to listen to the one bit of knowledge you most want to share. What is it?
  • Do you live by the advice you give? Sure, it’s easy to dish out opinions, but are you a pillar of your own beliefs?

I give lessons on Cooking, Crocheting, Sewing and Knitting on a regular basis.  I do not feel this is classified as advice.  It is simply someone who has worked the problem successfully at a prior time who is able to lend a helping hand to someone who has never walked that mile yet.

Helping a friend who is a new mother and is nursing her first baby my advice is very simple.  The baby will let you know when things are not quite right.  If things are flowing in a set pattern and routine then life is good.  The plumber never puts in new pipes if there is not a problem.

If a problem is not going to make a difference a year from now, perhaps it does not need to be a top priority on the list.  A lot of problems have a way of working themselves out on their own without doing anything but praying for the correct way for God’s will to be done.  I always to suggest to pray for three days on the same subject before making a decision.  This gives a person time to think with a clearer head and thought patterns.

Just thinking before you speak as to how it will have an effect on others will sometimes change the wording that would have otherwise been blurted out.

Remembering others and that they have feelings that can get hurt.  To never speak when angry and to bite the tongue if it is going to be a cruel comment will save on an embarasing moment later on.

What questions as my reader would you like to see answered here?

Submit your questions and I will be glad to honestly answer them for you.  (Or find a great source for your answer)

TammyeHoney’s Advice column is now open to her readers.

Bring on the questions….

I am ready and waiting..

Daily Prompt: Inspiration


Daily Prompt: Earworm

Write whatever you normally write about, and weave in a book quote, film quote, or song lyric that’s been sticking with you this week.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us INSPIRATION.


If you want sunshine in your day you have to keep a happy attitude and think happy thoughts.

To bring a dark cloud to surround you will only keep the storm.

Here is some sunshine use it wisely.

Be happy and dwell on what makes life great.

Everything could be gone in a flash.

Take a quick look around and be thankful for what you have.

Daily Prompt: Growing Up


Daily Prompt: The Natural World

Describe your first memorable experience exploring and spending time in nature.
Were you in awe?
Or were you not impressed?
Would you rather spend time in the forest or the city?

Photographers, artists, and poets: show us NATURE.

When I was a child growing up times were so different from now.
It was before the riots in Detroit started back in 1968.
A time when we could go to the local field at the end of the block.
A time when the entire neighborhood of children could gather at the playground and play all day.
The parents stayed home and did their chores.

Each child was called home by a certain whistle.
We knew to come when called or there would be consequences.

When I was older after 68′ I had moved to the country in Upstate New York.
I would spend my Summers either alone under the apple trees reading or working on a neighbors farm.

Although I missed my friends from growing up, I began to enjoy the solitude of being alone with nature.

Daily Prompt: Don’t Post If You Don’t Want It Known


Daily Prompt: Do Not Disturb

How do you manage your online privacy?
Are there certain things you won’t post in certain places?
Information you’ll never share online?
Or do you assume information about you is accessible anyway?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us PRIVATE. 

Don’t Post anything that you would not want the world to know…that is my rule of thumb…

I do not give certain details about my family and especially grand children as I do not want stalkers.

Since we own businesses it is obvious that there is an address and information available about us.

Headphones are not overkill, he needs all the help he can get

Headphones are not overkill, he is on skype with a customer

Our family is a different story…there is no need to share that…if they want it shared they will do it themselves.

What are your feelings on this?  Would love to hear.

Weekly Writing Challenge: Cell Phones as a distraction or blessing?


SMARTPHONES: BLESSING OR CURSE?

Is the ubiquitous internet — that constant need to ogle our phones at the first free moment — affecting our ability to focus? Do you find yourself compelled to change your Facebook status, or check your blog stats, or forward that new lolcat when you should be writing that proposal, building that deck, or designing that new site? Do you give your spouse laser eyes when you’ve served dinner and they’re texting a friend or taking a call while dinner gets cold? Is that constant alluring stream of self-validating Twitter @replies, Facebook Likes, and Instagram hearts affecting our ability to relate to human beings in the flesh?

Answer the poll below, then expand on your thoughts and feelings about whether or not the internet is ruining our focus and our ability to relate to other humans in an original blog post on your site. Be sure to tag your entry with DPchallenge.

I have to admit that as little as I know about my phone, I am addicted to Words With Friends as it does help to keep me calm throughout the day.  I find a challenge in trying to use all of my letters in one pass or at least most of them till I get to the end and then I just hope to use them.  
I do put my phone down when I have company.  I will tell phone callers (that are not customers), that I have company and will call them back and will wait to answer text messages as long as they are not customers.  

I have different ringtones to signify whether it is gmail notifications or if it is a facebook or email.  I also have a separate ringtone to let me know a text has come in so that I am not constantly checking my phone.

Since Words With Friends has a mind of it’s own and some days I can’t play for close to ten hours at a stretch, I will go a long time without being on my phone.

If my phone is on the charger I might not even get a call much less a text message for days till my cat drops the phone.

We do use the phone for our square https://squareup.com/  for business transactions.  This I love.  It has made life much easier.

What are your feelings on this subject has it taken away from social skills?

Please take my poll below and let me know

Thank you as always for reading and for your feedback,

Tammye Honey

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 14


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

 

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

Night time half staffFor Oklahoma Victims of Storm

In memory of those we have lost I am not doing a blog for a road trip today but am leaving this thought with you for the people who have come forward as volunteers and have contributed in helping to find each and every one of the missing, wounded and may our prayers be with every family involved.  The losses are incredible and our hearts ache.

See you tomorrow for our next leg of the journey.

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 12


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

Hard to believe that our journey has brought us into day 12 already.  Time really does fly when you are having fun.

I really do hope that you have enjoyed the journey so far.

Lets stop first and see what snack our first visit is preparing so that we can at least eat as we travel.

http://rantingchef.com/author/rantingchef/ When someone is not guest blogging or he is not doing a competition, he is reviewing products for the kitchen here.  This was one of the first blogs that I began to follow.  I have even had the privilege to be able to be a guest blogger this past fall.  It was such fun.

Today he is whipping up with a tutorial a dish of http://rantingchef.com/2013/05/19/so-much-for-cooking-classes/

Green Beans with Caramelized Onions and Almonds

Now that we have our food lets travel on to our next stop:

http://fingerprintwriting.wordpress.com/

Totally pack a bag lunch before you visit this site as you are really going to be there for a while.  Elaine writes about her life and happenings in it that are real.  You are aware from the first line in each article that they are written from the heart and genuine.  I only hope you enjoy as much as I have.

Next stop since you are back now:

http://vosperdruiter.wordpress.com/ Getting a view from a Pastor of a Church, now I really hope that perhaps you at least packed a snack or two and perhaps a second bag lunch.  There is also a lot of great reading here.

Our next stop is at http://herapereira.com/ Who not only has poetry and several interesting blogs of her own but a few reblogs of interest.

Our last stop of the day since I really do need to get back to my house guest and stop being rude is:

http://womenwhothinktoomuch.wordpress.com/ If that site does not keep you busy till tomorrow, nothing will.    She has categories with subcategories that I think have subcategories. LOL

She is one busy gal.

Till tomorrow signing out,

Tammye Honey

Daily Prompt: Happy Mother’s Day


Daily Prompt: Hi, Mom!

Today is Mother’s Day in the United States. Wherever in the world you are, write your mother a letter.

Photographers, share a photo that says mothering.

I consider myself fortunate today to have three daughters who wished me a happy Mother’s Day.  I only gave birth to two of them.

One was a foster daughter who I have still kept in touch with over the years.  She has had her ups and downs in life, yet she always has remembered me and always calls me when she needs a friend.  She knows that I will not judge her.

Love is unconditional and should be shared as such.  I am blessed to have very loving daughters who have daughters of their own.

I hope that their Mother’s Day is one of the best yet.

Thank you for being such wonderful daughters to me and such great Mothers to your own daughters.

Thank You and Enjoy your Mother’s Day also.

Daily Prompt: Love IS


Daily Prompt: I Want to Know What Love Is

We each have many types of love relationships — parents, children, spouses, friends. And they’re not always with people; you may love an animal, or a place. Is there a single idea or definition that runs through all the varieties of “love”?

Love is in so many examples and can be shown in so many ways that does not cost any money.
Tell someone that you love them today.
Give a stranger a smile and tell them to have a nice day. 🙂
Have a great day.  To every Mom out there enjoy your day tomorrow.
