Welcome to the rest of my life

Monday, July 01, 2013

Hi. I'm Ronna. Nice to meet you. Well perhaps you have met me before it is true but it is time to disregard some of that. I have decided that I will welcome you to the new me...or rather ...more accurately new reality. Here is what I am sick of...complaining and being sad. Here is what I want to do...tell my story in a positive I'm gonna. If you are interested you are going to have to bear with me because this is my plan.

I am a 45 year old woman who has the most beautiful, clever children ever. I also have a wonderful and extremely talented husband. I live in Norway...for now. We get the opportunity to start a new adventure in life because we have no jobs! We also feel highly hopeful that the case that a previous landlord we has against us will go our way because ...we have faith...even if he wins, it is only money right? The neat thing is that we have no help with this so we really get to rely on ourselves and find out how strong we can be. I think we are very very strong people.

I also have to hope that my very favorite uncle in the whole world will be ok. He has been my biggest strength and support outside my little family here in Norway and he is now all at once, very sick. I love him and still have him so I am lucky.

Another interesting thing is that I get to face my biggest fear...the bottom falling out. Now I can stop worrying about it, because it happened! What a story this will make one day!

I am so happy because I am sleeping now...without the feeling of impending least now I know why I wasn't sleeping! I also dropped five pounds in about one week and although it wasn't the best way to loose...lack of appetite...I am eating again and plan on maintaining my current weight for a while. I was stress eating more.

Today is a good day because I brought my children to the playground and watched them play in the carefree way that children should...without worry...filled with happiness.

I have decided that I will bring you along for my journey...if you are see what kind of wonderful things will happen in my future. This is my plan.

    Hey Ronna,

    This is a wonderful way to get it all out there in the universe. Once you let it go into the atmosphere amazingly things begin to happen. I'm a firm believer that things happen for a reason and when one door closes another will open. Don't ever be afraid to ask for what you want, just get the want out there. What's the worst that could happen..."no", big whoop! You and your husband are in this together and you get to support each other through it.

    Some people, besides my own family and friends who have given me strength are Lee Harris (channeler, intuitive and energy teacher) you can find him at, Louise L. Hay (bestselling author, speaker, and inspirational teacher) and her websites are and Well worth looking both up and both are on FB. Hang tough and be true to you. Much love to you and your family.

    Love, K

    Ronna ! I am so sorry to hear of not only your job loss, but your husband's too ! It's no wonder you've been under so much stress recently. Between that and the Mr Crappy Pants case, you must have been pulled in twelve different directions.

    I know you and your hubby will find a new opportunity soon. Your both TOP gourmet chefs. Restaurants should be fighting each other to bring you on. I know how difficult it is looking for work, but I also know that staying positive will help you get through this.

    I'm here for you !

    Isn't it wierd that when the worst fears come to pass, they lose their power to cause quite as much fear! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Ronna.....what a positive blog! Thank you for inviting me to your new reality, I am happy to join you in your journey.

    I'm glad you are able to sleep well and that you are enjoying more time with your kids. I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.

    I hated it when people said to me "when God closes a door he opens a window" or "this means something better is in your future" BUT the two times the bottom has fallen out on us we've come out of it with lessons learned and everything was OK.

    Keep moving forward and looking on the bright side.

    Look at you. Killer blog. You are grounded. You see that your family is most important and you are lucky. although painful, jobs come and go and new
    Opportunities for growth surface.

    Hi Ronna!
    Being positive and expecting the best in all situations is a wonderful state to be in. You won't be disappointed. You have a wonderful family. And how nice to have a special Uncle too! You are bright & intelligent and so is Patrick. I KNOW the future holds only bright things for you and your family. I will hold you in my heart. I look forward to hearing what wonderful things are happening in your life. Hugs! emoticon m emoticon m

    Wow, Ronna, this is both amazing and well, I feel for your challenge! But you are indeed correct, it is only money, but no jobs? So sorry to hear this!! But I know that experience, as hubby was laid off and mine is tenuous at best. But like you we keep plugging away.

    By the way, the "plan" is a good one. People can take much from you, but not your spirit. Keep it strong, oh and I will write an email.
