Some days are great, others are not...but no matter what twists and turns I encounter, you can be sure I'm going to write about it!

Baby Steps.

If you make it a goal to say what you think in order to attain harmony in your life, does that mean I should speak up if I'm offended? My parents taught me not to speak unless I have something nice to say, etc. So what if most of my thoughts seem to be very negative? I'm so confused. Does this mean there is something wrong with me? I'm having a difficult time figuring things out!!
I'm really making an attempt to follow through with what I say as well...this takes time and patience on my behalf (but it is something I am truly trying to work on). For example, I want to eat healthy. To attain this, I planned out my meals for the rest of the week, including utilizing left overs and transforming them into new meals. This should not only cut down on the amount of food I waste, but also serve as a healthier alternative to eating out. I also want to have a clean house. I know this cannot happen overnight, but it is something I am consciously aware of...hopefully I can achieve this goal sooner than later (and actually keep up with my housework for once).
Where am I getting all of these cock-a-may-mee ideas you ask? PBS....Suze Orman to be more specific. I happened to catch a talk she did to an audience of women about becoming a wealthy woman. I had never been a big Suze Orman fan, nor had I ever given her or her ideas the time of day. But for some reason, I was drawn to hear her ideas. She was not only referring to financial wealth. She took a more holistic approach. It was fascinating to listen to. Maybe it is because of the desperation I am feeling to be a financially free and unburdened person. Either way, her thoughts and opinions really stuck with me. Hopefully I can keep taking baby steps, and will eventually end up a wealthy woman. I know I can do it....I know I can!


  1. Just wanted to say thanks for the link in the sidebar :)

  2. You can totally do it. Every year, I write a list of my top 5 goals, and every year, at least 4 of them come to fruition. The power of the written word is incredible.
