Here I am making my blog post. I figure that I better do it now when I have the time, rather than later when I most likely will not. It feels good to be getting into the groove of writing about my day, feelings, frustrations, accomplishments and so on. It really gives me a boost of positive energy...no matter what I write about:)

Well, dh and I still are not seeing eye to eye on my Arbonne stuff. Tonight I am going to dinner with some of the girls and it is making him mad. He does not see that there really could be a good future for me in this. There is the potential to make good money and have a successful business through Arbonne. Since it is not an instant thing he does not like it and it is nights and weekends and he does not like that either. Well, too bad for him. I've heard him out on why he doesn't like it and it all revolves around him. This is something that I want to do, an passionate about, and want to follow through with. I want to be a success at something....and the something that I am choosing is Arbonne. And it really is not taking up very much of my time right now, so he can't even go there.

Still looking for a job to appease him though. I figure if I get a "real" job that would just be more potential clients/business partners that I am meeting. my upside to what I don't want to do:)

I am still trying to make sure that I pray everyday, drink my water, exercise, stay positive, journal, and do my business builders. I know that I will be a success at all of this. It is going to take me some time, BUT I can do it:) I will do it and I will prove everyone wrong who tells me that I can't. Just watch me go....my slow walk will turn into a faster one, then to a light jog....then to a run, and finally I will sprint across that finish line with this biggest smile I can put on my face:):)

I have dreams that I want to see come true. The only person/thing holding me back is me. No more! So....here I go.......

    Good for you.
I can totally relate to the get a "real' job. My husband and I just celebrated our first anniversary today, and don't work 9-5 jobs. It drives his mom nuts- she doesn't think that we work, since we are not in an office. She asks us if we make any money at what we do- he told her, well, have we asked you for any money- no- well then leave us alone. We do direct sales ourselves, three home based businesses, Cookie Lee Jewelry ( that's the main one) Tupperware and Avon. We started in April and every single weekend we were booked at a fair, festival, trade show, car show, bazaar, or fundraiser. We love meeting people. ( My hubby has two children from previous marriage, we have them during the week, and the ex has them on the weekend, so we are available during the week, take them to school, pick them up, sports, etc, also to take his mom shopping, appts, and do errands for her, which we could not do if we had the real jobs- but she doesn't see that!) We are not desk people, been there done that and its not us! You do what makes you happy, what you have a passion for is what you will be successful at and happy doing. ( sorry to go on and on).

Another day under my belt

Sunday, February 01, 2009

I was on here earlier and almost did not blog about my day and feelings. I have noticed that when I really write down what I am feeling and why, I feel a little bit better. I know that writing doesn't really fix anything but it gets out those darn emotions that I other wise would try to hide.

I've been thinking about divorcing my hubby. I still am not sure that it is the right thing to do but it is where my heart is being lead. I feel like a failure but I also know that it is not all me. He is some of our problem too. My biggest hang up in making the ultimate decision is how to afford any of it...attorney, new home/apt, car ins, home ins, and so on. I am a stay at home mom right now. I've been looking for a job and have not found one...yet.

I am not going to be lead down a path of no return and feeling lousy for myself all of the time. I am better than that and I will not be brought down. I am a smart, funny, caring, loving person....who is just scared right now. I can do this. I will do what is right for me. God will lead me down the correct path. He is there for me. I will pray and He will answer.


Home based business people...

Feeling Positive

Saturday, January 31, 2009

I've not written for the last few days. I had to go out of town for a funeral...just one of my old neighbors. Anyways, it snowed like crazy when I was in Michigan and it had snowed like crazy where I live at in Ohio. We are lucky that we still have power so I won't complain.

I am have re-dedicated myself to being successful with my Arbonne business. I keep getting e-mails of others that are doing very well and I want to be one of them. I need to get myself out there and make it happen. No more negaitve thougts, no more thougts of failure, not wanting to, no more being scared to heat "no", no more self doubt and no more listening to my dh tell me that I can't do this...that people won't spend the money. Well, what I am selling is no more than what you would spend in Target for skin care or the next step in Macy's at one of the counters there. This is a great company to be with and I want to be at the top. I want to feel like a successful person with something great to offer. And I AM!!!!!

I have been eating a little bit better than what I usually do and I have got up and exercised more than noraml...but I forget to track it. So that is my goal for this week....to track what I eat and exercise minutes. being honest with myself about it and not feeling guilty if I eat too much or don't exercise. I am a success here as well. I can do this....I can do anything!

So here is to feeling positive and oozing positive energy. I am propelling forward in my thinking and in my life. I will get done what I set out to do. No more holding me back. Here is to the old me, but with more confidence and better skin:) I love me and I want to be me:)


Just a day

Sunday, January 25, 2009

Today has been an okay day for me. I had some ups and downs and some in betweens.

I feel a little bit down about my financial situation at home. I really need to find a job to help out with our income. I keep looking and applying but I've not had any call backs. My dh tells me almost every day that I need to get a job....as if I don' t already know that. It is so frustrating and is really bringing me down. I am trying to stay positive about it but having a hard time dealing. I am just about to the point where I would take about any job offered...almost. I know that I am smart and I know that I can do anything that I set my mind to. What can I do to help potential employers to see it too?

I also have been praying to God a lot more about everything. I talk to him about my good times and my bad times. I am letting Him know that I am trying to be a better and stronger me. I want to learn and know more about my faith and in the Lord. He has brought some great people into my life to help me with that. I am enjoying it a lot.

Well, the babies are fighting so I better go. Thanks for listening to me and offering some great advice:)
