What I am thankful for

 

There are so many things I am grateful for but these are my top.

 

1. I am grateful for my God and the love and mercy he shows me, as I am far from perfect but he loves me non the less.

 

2. I am grateful for my girls, as they are my life and I would do anything for them.

 

3. I am grateful for my love, my family and friends as they make my life full…full of love and laughs.

 

4. I am grateful for my home as I envisioned this happy and peaceful place for many years before it actually came to pass.

 

5. I am grateful for my business, that I get to do something I love, that I get to help people and that I stepped out on faith and God has taken care of me since.

 

6. I am grateful for my health  and my girls health as it is something so many of us take for granted.

 

7. I am grateful for all the lessons I have learned even the ones that hurt the most as it made me grow into who I am today.

 

8. I am grateful for my church and my church family, as I never knew so many people can have such giving and caring hearts.

 

9. I am grateful for this gift, this purpose God has giving to me, the gift of writing and being able to touch others hearts.

 

10. I am grateful for my faith, this crazy sick faith I have, that I know nothing is impossible if you believe.

 

So today my friends on this, Thanksgiving day remember what is truly important. Remember you dont need a special day to tell the people you love how much they mean to you. You dont need a special day to be grateful for all the things in your life, make every day Thanksgiving! Give thanks everyday!

 

To all of my friends, family and readers may you feel love and compassion this day, may you pay it forward and remember to be the change you want to see.

You gotta do what you gotta do

Hump day Treadmill Treats

During this hoilday week while I am getting ready to bring together friends and family, I bring the best of Treadmill Treats:

 

You have to do what you have to do to get by.

 

There are some days I don’t even know how I have the energy to get through the day.

If you read my blog, you know I am a single mom of 2 girls, I get barely any child support and so I have to work, alot… to make ends meet.

 

But I am nor have I ever been afraid of work,

I learned my work ethic from my parents especially my mother who worked the night shift in a dinner for 18 years, serving mostly drunks night after night.

 

I learned you don’t sit back and expect to get things handed to you, you have to work and work hard for them.

I can remember any free time they had, they would work on our broken down farm house we had.

After working all night, she would come home change her clothes and help my dad work on the house.

 

I remember thinking how does she do it? I know now, it’s because you need to do what you need to do to get by, you don’t think about it, you just do it.

She was my role model and my hero.

 

I have to keep reinventing myself to try to make money.

I wake up every morning at

5 am, I am at the gym by 5:30.

I write my blog, edit it and post it on four sites all before 8 am.

 

I then do professional organizing, I recently added personal assistant to the mix, then decided to help people with their electronics to try to make more money. I recently added website building and social media to the mix.

I am self taught at all of these things.

 

I do hair at night and I whenever I can, I do focus groups or secret shopping and before the night is over, I post my blog on the 5 other sites I blog on and then promote my book and business.

 

There is nothing I won’t do to put food on my table for my girls. I am not to “proud” to do a job to keep a roof over our heads, if that includes working 16 hour days, so be it.

If I had to I would scrub toliets and be proud to do so to support my family.

 

I worked like this while I was married for my ex for free, all while feeling like I was in prison, so this is a piece of cake. I get to come home to a peaceful home, filled with love and laughter, are you kidding? This is easy! I am truly free now!

 

Don’t say you can’t do it, that you don’t have time, you can make time for all other kinds of things, stop watching TV like I did, that frees up 4 hours a night.

 

I am constantly thinking of what I can do next. One day (soon) I would like to be able to do one job, just write and speak and I will get there but until then I will do what I have to do.

 

So today my friends, remember there is nothing you can’t do if you put your mind to it…you can do it, yes, sometimes it might feel impossible but remember what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

 

If I can do this, you definitely can do this, just never give up…just believe. If you have to do it one day at a time, just do it. Keep your eye on the prize no matter how far away it may seem, no matter how far fetched it may seem, you can get there…you will get there if you just believe….

 

Be the change you want to see”
