#22 - Giving

Margaret Chaney

Throughout this #30 blog posts before my 30th birthday challenge, I have mentioned a couple of my goals... One goal in particular is/was to text, call, write, etc someone in my life each day, and let them know how much they mean to me.  It's really not that hard, but sometimes I have to do a couple in one day- because I fall behind- kind of like this blog!  Sometimes I have more fun with my messages- and post fantastic throwback pictures on my FB, so everyone can get a kick out of it. Here is one of my favorite...


#16 - #20. Nonsense, maybe.

Margaret Chaney

Yeah, my procrastination has kicked in. But I have a good excuse I swear.....said every procrastinator, ever.  But here are a few numbered thoughts, that are not important enough to blabber on about-  but you may find truth and/or humor in.  #16- I have about 10 days until my 20's are over.

#15- A club I never belonged to

Margaret Chaney

Until recently, I have always felt like there is a club I never belonged to... Has there been a time in your life where you feel like you are exactly in the same place, yet do not belong there with those who are also in the same place?

And as my friends began to get married and have their babies, I was in a place where...


#14 - A Rant

I really do not understand why people use social media for hate and bullying and voicing their crappy, mean thoughts. I think I may wage a war against it. I sincerely doubt that the mean people outnumber the kind.  Who is with me?  I watched a TEDtalk early this morning by a woman with cerebral palsy. She is Palestinian, lives in New Jersey, and was saying how she was never bullied in school- BUT she has been bullied since her career has gained internet fame. Commenters hiding behind screens somewhere, spewing hate and awful words. WHY?  Have you ever read...


#11- The Importance of Sharing

I am sure you all are sick of my "share to wins"...ha, maybe? I always feel guilty when I do it, my biggest supporters, you all, already do so much to spread the word for me. (Oh, and shameless plug, go follow me @magsoulsista on Instagram for the giveaway today before 5 pm! All you need to do is tag me in a pic of your MagSoul or handmade item!) This is why I love to do custom pieces for you and send "sursi" (surprises for no reason) with your orders, because you are the reason I have gotten this...
