A Better Cup of Water….

I am working hard to drink more water and less coffee. Even though coffee tastes better. I was looking for a healthier coffee and didn’t come up with any. At least none that didn’t have a side effect. Dandelion coffee is supposed to be good for you, and it does help you go to the bathroom, but who wants that? Then again, if there is ever a need, I guess drinking coffee to help would be a good thing.

Drinking hot spicy lemon water and watching an old movie is better than drinking another cup of coffee. I am sipping on a bottle of water here and there, because I know it’s good for me. I have stopped trying to figure out why what is healthy either tastes bad or costs a lot?  

I am finding myself chewing on gum, instead of getting the chips that are on top of the refrigerator. I did get Lays with less salt, so not as bad, but it’s true no one can get just one or a few. There is also some onion dip inside of the frig. I may have gotten that for someone else, but it’s still there for me to enjoy as well.

I may have to look up some ways to jazz up my water: 

I can’t wait to try some of these and hope for a better tasting cup of water….

A Nice Walk….

I surprised myself by walking 30 mintues today. I was singing and dancing as I listened to gospel in my headphones.

I believe once my tummy started yelling at me “feed me” and making a list what I could make?

The idea of cooking made me close my eyes. Breakfast doesn’t have to be eggs,  because food is food. So, as I started preparing a salad, and I couldn’t stop thinking how I will see a better me one day.

Walking and eating right as I start my day😊

A Cane isn’t the End!

I never thought I would have to use a cane. I am just barely over the sentry mark (52 years young) and knowing I shouldn’t have a cane in my hand. I enjoyed my 30min walk outside. I will get back to a Better me and this cane WILL NOT BE NEEDED MUCH LONGER.

 I can walk freely, but the pain in my back says, “slow down and take a seat.” To think I got the cane, because my job (where I am standing for four hours) doesn’t want to honor my doctor’s note (the note said I needed a chair). Which said I needed the chair, because this is temporary. 

Then again if I cannot heal, my job doesn’t care, but I am putting my faith where it needs to be. This pain WILL NOT be with me for long nor will I be at the dead end job for long.

It’s 8:29am let me get back to my boring classes, because I need more knowledge to be free..

The time is 9:23am I got through four videos before my mind started going a different direction. I wish this instructor would just teach what is needed, and stop the unnecessary words (telling things we don’t need as beginners) and talking about stuff that is in the next video. One topic at a time.

I am going to take a break from this, but not what I need to do. It is time to edit my book. I am getting closer to that 50000 thousand word count every day. I believe I am just a little over 63000 now. Although I really just want a cup of coffee, work first relaxes later…

11:00am The Real just came on. I know it’s a repeat, but I am home and I am NOT missing my ladies if I can help it. I am smiling, one chapter down at 62885 word count, and now I am ready to have a cup of coffee.

I believe I am going to watch a double feature of Mary Poppins as I work on a new crochet project. I realized yesterday that I needed some reviews on my projects and I have lost contact with a lot of my customers. Some was co – workers from long ago jobs, to a few passing friends I only spoke with while on the bus or friends who have moved away.

The few friends I am still in touch with, I will be putting out words to them that I need help, and I will be giving a few gifts away to add a little more to my creative resume. (Smile)

I am still ignoring those who say I should sell and not accept job offers by request. For some reason people believe I can make a blanket in a day (I am shacking my head) and I just give them a stupid look and move on.

I am only one person doing my best and I am blessed as always. My goal is to have my new Blog/Website ready by the first of next month. I am so looking forward to working Smart and no longer for a company who does not care. My time and energy will go to where I am most happy as it should be. I believe to give your best one has to be at their best.

An Address Book

 I am not the one for being patient, because patience is a hard thing to do. It is especially hard when you want something or there’s something you want to do. 

When I have too much time to think, because I do not know what’s going on. I get to thinking of the what if’s:

  1.  What if I am not Important enough for someone to keep their word? (playing on past hurts)
  2.  Did I make a mistake in trusting someone who at one time has done wrong? (Although I did get an apology. I also know he has had a lot on his mind and he would never do anything to purposely do anything wrong).
  3. Did he just forget about me?
  4. Did I get put on the back of the list, because I am family?

When you have time to think of all these possibilities of what could have happened or what could have  gone wrong?  A simple phone call could have cleared everything up, but unfortunately there was no phone call that was made (his phone was totalled and he had to go out of town for work).

 I decided to reach out to someone else  that knew him, but that person decided to not answer my calls ( my brother and not his mother).

I finally got my computer and I just now realized I forgot to apologize to my cousin. Oh well there will be another time I see him.

I am laughing, because what happened to him actually happened to me. I  should have told him what I did to prevent this mix-up.

An address book. What is an address book? It’s a book where you simply add people whom you want to stay in touch with with their personal information. I had names, phone numbers, and a note of who they are for example: family, friend, co-worker, church family, doctors etc…. Etc…

I know I am not alone when I say, “I started putting in my phone”. Although putting everything in your phone is Fast and Easy  it does have a drawback. If you have to change your phone, all your information doesn’t always transfer to your new phone, and it’s lost. 

I should have learned from my mistakes, because just like before changing phones I lost all of my contacts.  I even said I was going to get a book and start writing all my information in, but I kept on saying, “one day” and that one day never came.

The good I am on Facebook. I may not have too many friends, but the few I have are on my fb page. There are a few who aren’t on fb and if you contact me cool and if not I wish everyone well. 

I can’t believe I spent most of my day learning. I didn’t think I could learn online, but Ii am HAPPY I was wrong. I did two sections, which held 10 15 minutes videos and handouts (well examiles that you were able to go along with). I really want to continue, but a day without working out I cannot do.

I can’t believe I just typed that. Who said they would rather workout versus learning how to change careers? I wonder if that is why I hear thunder outside my bedroom window?

I guess one has to look good going into a new world. God is so good, because this 51 year old is about to get LOUD!!!

Some don’t see me, and it doesn’t matter, because ONE DAY EVERYONE WILL!!!!!
