To Underestimate:

To estimate (something) as being less than the actual size, quantity, or number or to think of (someone or something) as being lower in ability, influence, or value than that person or thing actually is.


I am a mom of three amazing kids, a person who loves nature, loves creativity, and loves to learn about inner growth. I think the thing that attaches underestimating to me is I used to think I was underestimated by those around me. I had this perception that because of my size, because I look so young, because I’m maybe not as smart as others that I am easily underestimated.

The thing that I have found out over time was that I underestimated myself. It wasn’t about anyone elses’s opinion, it was about my own. Learning that my belief of being underestimated was my way of holding myself back unded up being my power to move forward.

So the main part of this blog is to keep a log of my growth, of how I spend my time, but also a way for me to share with you all how I’ve changed my life for the better in hopes that maybe you’ll look inside yourself and see where you have been holding yourself back and where you can grow as well.

Love Always,

    Hi J. Thanks for following my blog. I have to admit that I didn’t know you blog before, but it looks very nice. I’ll be keeping an eye at what you post. Plus, you seem a really nice person. And I’m small too! πŸ˜‰ (I looked for a ulnit converter from cm to feet and it says I’m 5 feet). I’ve felt a little bit overwhelmed with the list of things you plan to do before you turn 30. I’m 29 and I haven’t done any of them!! If you don’t achieve them all, don’t be sad: You have a lovely family! Thanks again and best whishes for all your projects! πŸ™‚

      Thanks! πŸ™‚ Yay for small people who understand me! lol. Yes it is kind of a crazy list! I’ve marked a few more things off that I need to update so thank for the reminder πŸ˜‰ Yes, that’s why I put at the bottom to be proud of myself not matter what happens. If I don’t make them all come true before then – oh well! But I still want to try! Thank you πŸ™‚ I’m looking forward to posts on your blog – it caught my eye and I immediately knew I was going to love it. Keep in touch!
