Hey readers, let’s welcome a new guest writer, Tracey Clayton, to TwinCitiesView! She wrote about an important topic that I, myself, try to practice everyday… It’s a great topic that I hope others can learn from and utilize in their life. Enjoy!
To My wonderful, magnificent, loving subscribers I want you to know you are appreciated! It took me a while to get this blog thing up and running and to truly find my writing voice. I knew I wanted to inform people and discuss matters that readers could relate to, but at the same time not bore them… so I found good old humor to accompany the topics in most of my posts. I found myself! and I’m lucky to have people like my subscribers who enjoy my work. So as a thank you I’d love to give you… [Read more…]

How do we as members of our awesome families stay sane on those insane days? there’s only one cure… ME TIME! when you’re going to lose your cool, or you’re just crabby (we all have those days, let’s be honest!) take some time to yourself to unwind.

Believe In Miracles!
Miracles happen everyday, and I had the pleasure of being one of those miracles May 16th 2012 (exactly 4 years ago, to this date!). Having Acute Liver Failure 4 years ago, sent me to the hospital and right away Doctors were saying ‘this is bad, this is very bad.’ They were preparing my folks for the worst, telling them I had 24-48 hours to live. Initially they couldn’t do anything for me (other than lab work), because the Doctors had to first find out why my liver stopped working before giving me pain relief (Oxy) or chelating medicine (Trientine). After labs came back, they could see my liver stats had a toxic level of copper (one of the most ever recorded), and at the moment I was diagnosed with Wilson’s Disease. [Read more…]
Live & Learn- The Survival Guide To Life!
Learning from mistakes is a valuable lesson in life. It’s the only way to really evolve and grow as an individual and as a society. Making mistakes is not bad, but repeating the same mistake and not learning and growing from that mistake is troublesome. Let me ask you readers… How many people do you think learn from their mistakes? matter of fact, how many people do you think learn from OTHER people’s mistakes? Tough question huh?! I know, for myself, I always do my best and truly make an effort to learn from my mistakes, and even better, learn through other people’s mistakes as much as possible. [Read more…]

Kick Back & Enjoy!
Kick back & Enjoy is a laughable take on my thoughts with certain photos and quotes! (well hopefully)… I’ve gotten a lot of great feedback from my earlier post ‘To Parents Who Have Had A Rough Day’ and many of you have requested I do another post similar to that one, because it was hilarious and made your day much brighter. I must admit this is going to be a challenge, because that is one of my favorite posts thus far… [Read more…]
Another one bites the dust!
Dang you divorce, for becoming the norm in life (even in MY life!) I hate adding on to this statistic, but it is true! I am in the middle of a divorce, that was too broken to fix… like trying to put a shattered/ broken into smithereens egg… ‘humpty-dang-dumpty’ fell off for good! But before I get personal, I wanted readers to think about why they feel divorce has become a way of life currently?! Here are my thoughts…
The Best Part Of Waking Up… Coffee!
(even more than waking up with the love of your life…just kidding~maybe!)
Ever wonder why you wake up in the morning and crave that great tasting coffee? We all know caffeine is addictive (to a certain level depending on amount consumed), but rest assure, this caffeine addiction is good for you with many benefits…yay! It is the morning right now, as I’m writing this, and do I have a cup of coffee sitting next to me calling me to take a sip every 25 seconds?…You Betcha! (thought I’d throw in a little MN talk, because I reside in this wonderful state!) [Read more…]
