You plan, God sees ~ Judge Judy Hartsfield Since I started law school, I've been trying to figure out what area of law I will enjoy most and be most effective.  Some how I know that I will land where God wants me to.  My peers may snare at me for saying that I didn't want law school for the money I just feel that there is some greater purpose for me being here.  This journey is no easy feat, and law school (for a lack of ...

Days passing quickly – Each week I look up and it’s the weekend, after that, it's Monday and back to the grind. Sometimes I feel that there is always so much to do, presumably every law student feels that way.  Finals are right around the corner and will be knocking at the door pretty soon.  It's time now to start preparing and getting conditioned for exams.  But first – this weekend – I am going to take a step back and think ...

Counting my blessing on my birthday. There are so many things that I am thankful for today.  I have a great family, friends, peers, co-workers, mentors and a wealth of great people around me.  Some things money can't buy and I feel that God has blessed me with a lot.  I use my birthday to mark the new year for me to reflect and plan on moving forward.  This day I look back at how far I have come (too much for a single blo...

Today was parent teachers’ conference for my son, an 8th grade student.  Thankfully, Spring Break is this week and I didn’t have to miss school to attend conferences.  I am a full-time parent and the duty befalls me to assist my son in reaching self-actualization.  My past choices are always at the forefront of my mind as I mature and value the significance of doing things in order; develop individually then raise a family.  ...

Spring Break in the middle of winter. My calendar is all planned out with plenty of things that I need to accomplish while enjoying a week off from classes.  While it’s nice to get some down time I feel as though I cannot relax or else I’d drop the ball.  I need to keep a certain amount of stress on myself during the entire semester.  Otherwise it would be too difficult for a person as myself to get back in school mode when classe...

Create a positive sphere of influence!  I'm learning the importance of being around people who produce good / positive energy.  Surround yourself with positive people that have a can-do attitude.  This is essential when you have a hectic, non-stop schedule. When you are around likeminded people you help each other keep positive thoughts throughout the day.  I caution you, however, to steer clear of people that “juic...

Having a family, working and attending law school.  One of my most challenging day-to-day responsibilities is making sure that I am being a good parent.  Parenting skills cannot be learned by reading a book.  The skills required to be a good parent are learned during the process of raising children.  This by far is the most challenging skills I've yet to learn.  When you have another person's life...

Someone asked me today how I manage all that I have to do.  This question is not something I focus on nor one I could easily answer.  An afterthought - it's just my life. In fact, if I begin thinking about my several responsibilities, tasks and etc., I would likely get discouraged from my goals and loose sight of what's most important to me.  This in large part is to be a role model for my son and help him to achieve his ...
