Often time we dream about our future.  Your dreams can become a reality if you set goals.  A goal is a strategic step by step process to making your dreams come true.  A lot of times we get frustrated when trying to reach our dream.  Don’t give up, stay patient, stay focused, and keep on trying. With hard work, dedication and willpower, you will eventually succeed.

Love Yourself

Sometimes we focus so much on others that we lose sight of ourselves.  There may be some individuals that don't see the worth of who they are.  You have to learn to love self first.  Without self-love it is hard to give and to receive love in return. So know your self worth, know that you are love and deserve to be loved in return.

How I Juggle School With Being a Single Mom

As, a single parent, it comes with many trials and tribulations.  I am a single mom with three children. I have two boys and one girl.  And as a student and going down this road can be a difficult journey.  But with will power and perseverance, you can make your dreams come true.  I am currently pursuing my PhD in psychology.  Here are some things I do to try to make my life a lot simpler and they are:

·         Manage your time
·         Delegate your responsibilities
·         Avoid negative people/situations
·         Take some time out  for self

The first tip is to manage your time.  I feel that in order to be an effective student with added responsibilities that you must be a good manager of your time.  Often times it can be so easy to get off course and to go into a tangent.  I find that managing my time more wisely helps to avoid getting off task.  When I first start my day, I try to write a do list on my calendar of things I have to do.   It is also a good idea to write a schedule and start a daily routine for self.

Another tip is to delegate your responsibilities.  Being the sole provider can come at a price and that is having everyone depending on you for support.  But the question is where your support?  This is when you have to learn how to manage your household to the point where is ran efficiently.  For instance, I may assign some of the house chores for some for my older children, such as washing dishes and folding cloths, so I can have some time to work on my studies.

The third tip is to avoid negative people.  Negative people are anyone who creates nothing but drama and hardship into your life.   It is hard enough having to raise children alone but having extra burdens such an abusive partner, freeloaders, and leeches on your back can bring you down.  Negative people can be friend, partners, and even other family members.   If these negative individuals are not supportive of you, then you may need to see if they are worth being a part of your inner circle.  That is why it is important to surround yourself around positive people.

Next is to take time out for self.  When was the last time you just took a mental break or did some self-pampering? You can pamper yourself with simple things like taking a long warm bubble bath or getting your hair and nails done.  Every now and then it is good to just take some time out to clear your mind especially when you are feeling a lot of stress.  Sometimes I go and meditate to clear my head for a few minutes and this alone makes a world of difference.

These are some of the things that I do to help stay focused and motivated.  Being a single parent and going to college is not easy but it is not impossible.  Envisioning my bright future is what inspires me to keep on pursuing my dreams.  Just like I am doing it, so can you.

Believe In Yourself

Life can throw many storms and obstacles which can make you feel frustrated and not believe in self.  Believing in self is important because it is what pulls you through the hard times.

Reaching goals and certain milestones is a wonderful feeling but trying to get there is another ballgame.  One of the key elements to success it is to believe in self.  This means to believe in your dreams and your purpose.  Besides if you don’t believe in yourself who else will?

Take Time for Self-Care

By:  Kimberly Swanson "Purpoz", MS - Psy, CNA
It is important to take care of yourself.  Often times some people are so consumed with with the physical and caring for others that they often times forget about themselves.  This is so true with parents, care givers, and so many others who have the 24 hour job of caring for others.

Self-care allows you to relax and to release all of the negative energy that accumulates throughout the day.  It allows you to release and to rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit.

Don’t Give Up!

By:  Kimberly Swanson PsyM, LAPC, CNA

Have you ever had a period in your life where it seems like things are just not falling into place?  Or you may feel that nothing is connecting or going smoothly.  Well, that’s how I have been feeling lately. 

I did not get my article published in the science journal because I missed the deadline for submitting final edits.  I was very disappointed and felt discouraged about not having everything in done time. The professor and editor thought I had to a great concept and that I should continue to revise it with their feedback and re-submit it again for next year’s publication.   So I am going to try again next year.

What do you do when you are feeling frustrated and want to give up?  These are some of the things I do to stay focused and motivated:
  • ·         Analyze your situation
  • ·         Stay positive
  • ·         Remember your purpose

I find that sometimes when things are not going right, I need to sit down and analyze my situation.  Sometimes things don’t connect as it should because something is missing or perhaps you are not going in the wrong direction.  While analyzing my situation,  I began to notice some things about myself.  Some things were not connecting for me because I needed to make some major changes in my life, such as letting go of past mistakes.  I had to learn from them and learn how to move forward.

Another area that was lacking in my life, was my health.  I was constantly looking out for others and making sure everyone was ok.  But I failed to make sure that I was ok.  I am realizing now that I can’t handle family, school, and work if I am sick.  I know now that I have to take better care of myself in order to accomplish more things.  

No matter how bad your situation may be, you must stay positive.  I am seeing this now.  I try to stay positive even during the worst of times.  Being negative can be extremely draining.   Instead of having negative thoughts, replace them with good ones such as, “I am going to meet my goals with school today.”  Or “I am going to find that job that I have been looking for.  Positive thinking encourages you to keep on trying and not give up.

Another tip is to remember your purpose.  Sometimes I have to sit back and remind myself why I am pursuing my goals?  I  think about what a major difference my life would be for both my family and when I finish school and complete my education.  I see getting my education as a way of improving my life circumstance.  It is a stepping stone towards fulfilling my life purpose.  Envisioning and believing in myself is what inspires me to do better.

These are my tips for not giving up.  You must continue to believe in yourself and keep going.    No one is perfect,  but you can see each mistake as a learning experience towards greatness.
