when it rains…it pours

Rose's Rundown

Have you ever heard of the saying “when it rains, it pours”?  Sometimes I used to hear this saying growing up, and did not really understand it, even perhaps took it literally as in an act of the weather.  However, growing up the more I have come to realize not only what this term means but that it is very true.

It seems that every time something per say negative happens in my life it trumps a trickle effect of more negative things adding up….so much that you almost feel like you cannot take another thing.  The rain turns into a torrential down pour, and you begin to question if it will ever be positive and sunny again?

As hard as it may be to accept…..

The answer is Y E S it will be okay again sometime.

God has a magical way of helping us understand life to its…

Give Thanks Everyday!!

Rose's Rundown

We grow up learning about Thanksgiving, that it is a day in which we are to give thanks for all we are and all that we have.  However, why is it subjected to only be once a year?  I think our society as a whole would benefit immensely if we gave small thanks every single day of our existence.

The reason being, that if each and every single day we took ten minutes to realize and think about all we have to be grateful for, it would change our mindsets.  Think about it…who is not joyed and jolly on Thanksgiving day?  Unless you are the scrudge the answer is NO ONE!!

Having a positive outlook on life can be contagious.  Therefore, if we spread positivity and thanks everyday, the world would be a better place.  Mindset is truly everything, and guides our thoughts and outlooks plain and simple…

My Life as a “Mombie”

The World Through Hazel Eyes

My three year old is in a stage I’ve grown to call the “Terrifying Threes” which is somehow much worse than the “Terrible Twos”. It comes from a multitude of new and angsty behaviors, but the most traumatizing has been his refusal to sleep. At all.

It’s like living with the Tasmanian Devil after he’s had a case of Red Bull. IT. NEVER. STOPS.

He’s learned this new thing where around 12:30 at night, he crawls out of bed and opens my door without making a sound.

Then, he pets my head and whispers, “Mommy, wake up.”

I can assure you, each night he wakes me up from the deepest point in my sleep cycle and I bolt out of my bed like I’ve been electrocuted.

I walk him back to his bed and tuck him in. We then proceed to spend the next 45 minutes reading every book on…

Being on Reality Television…

Rose's Rundown

Not the average comment someone makes is that they are a part of a reality television series.  I was just like everyone not knowing that lifestyle, until January of 2017.  I am part of  Lifetime’s newest hit reality television series “So Sharp” which made its airing debut July 26, 2017.

“So Sharp” follows my coach, Todd Sharp, and my teammates and I on the prestigious University of Louisville Ladybirds Dance Team.  The show involves insight on our lives, our practices, our demandind schedule, our stress, our drama, and all the inbetween.  The first season followed our road to nationals where we prepared to defend our two national titles in NDA (National Dance Alliance) collegiate competition in Daytona Beach, FL.

Throughout the series, we perform games that prepare us for the nationals floor while it shows the stress pressure and hard work it takes to stay on top.  Through the blood…

Know Your Stuff

Lia's Blog

First of all I want to explain that I am by NO MEANS NECESSARY a Bible or Christianity expert. But there are a few things that I’d like to discuss.

Did you know that there are over 850 DOCUMENTED branches (denominations) of Christianity? But wait….

Isn’t there just one Bible?wow

For instance, most churches hold services on Sunday… Did you know that this actually isn’t biblical? According to the 10 commandments and Mark 16:1,9, the Sabbath Day (being the day of rest) is indeed on the 7th day, which is Saturday. Look up the word Sunday, it’ll tell you it’s the first day of the week, and then look up the word Saturday, it’ll tell you it’s the seventh day of the week.wow2Then if the Bible doesn’t say Sunday… then who did?

Actually, it was Roman Emperor Constantine that changed the Sabbath day to Sunday, but he himself didn’t…

Social Media and Job Searching

Kayla's Blog

Social media can play a major role in our day to day lives. Whether it’s for entertainment purposes or job related, social media’s presence has grown over the past few years. I use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram the most but Twitter is probably my favorite platform. I mainly use it for entertainment purposes but sometimes post myself. In my last blog post I mentioned how I will be graduating soon so I’ve been on the hunt for potential jobs. Using social media can either help or hurt you when it comes to finding a job so I make sure my personal pages on the different platforms are appropriate. I have some tips on how to make sure your social media pages don’t hinder your chances of getting your dream job.

Feeling Fearless…

Rose's Rundown

Has anyone ever experienced the feeling of complete fearlessness…where nothing in the world could change the way you felt in that moment.  To me, being fearless is accepting your fears and scares but jumping anyway.  To me, being fearless is giving your all to someone that once let you down before.  To me, being fearless is falling in love again after your heart was once already broken.  To me, being fearless is an amazing thing.  To me, being fearless is something everyone should experience in their life.

One experience that left me completely fearless in the moment was
