What niche?

A friend of mine asked me the other day what exactly this blog is about; my answer was simple everything. This blog is where I can share anything and everything, whether it is about my life or some type of randomness I thought others would get a kick out of. He asked me if I was worried about over sharing or losing my sense of privacy. I told him that I’d only be losing as much “privacy” as I chose to give up. When asked again “but what will you be writing”, I told him I’d share pieces of me – my past, my present, my ideas, my sense of humor; nothing specific. My blog is filled with randomness and if just one person can take something from my posts (even if it’s just a good laugh) then I accomplished part of what I set out to do with the mijita chronicles. I read a quote once that said “life is an open book full of blank pages, you write the story as you go.” SO KEEP WRITING! I’m a firm believer that we go through the things we do in life for a reason even though we may not understand i…

www.raisedbyculture.com I LOVE Xenia! I have known her for close to 11 years and consider her to be my blogging mentor as well as my inspiration to start this blog. Her blog is anything and everything family and definitely a place to visit if you’re a mommy. So with that said, take a minute to stop by and say hi – I promise you you’re not only going to love her but you’re going to fall in love with her adorable kiddos!

www.3twentysix.com Ari posts a little bit of everything on her blog from TV to music to cool apps and book reviews mixed in with bits of silliness. I promise you’ll find something of interest there if not you will at least get to enjoy some pictures of her furkids.

Thankful Thursday

I've been feeling a little blah lately and have been trying to pull myself out of this funk. One of the little tricks I keep up my sleeve is reflecting on the blessings I have rather than how crappy things may seem. You know the whole glass half full approach? Sure this sounds easy but when you're even slightly depressed it's not so easy to see the gray areas instead of only the black and white. Anywho with that said I opened my gratitude journal app, began typing away and here's a few of the things I came up with...
1. 2 beautiful healthy children. In my day to day role at work I deal with children that have various health issues and thank god daily for my children being healthy. I truly admire the strength of those parents with children that have health issues as they are true warriors <3
2. The love story that Mr. G and I have as it is truly amazing. I love him to the depths of my soul.
3. Family - both bio and extended.  I love them to pieces and would be lost with…
