Friday Four: God Pushes-but I don’t wanna go,,,right now.

There are no failures – just experiences and your reactions to them.Image

This have been such a week..  Have you felt pushed? Not by any person but by life, God?

I’m feeling that way.I guess when you ask for change and you think it, breathe it, yearn it…. you’ll get it if the creator agrees. I just don’t think I’m ready- Right now? Does that make any sense at all? I see quite a few folks from my circle growing, progressing and I’m so proud of them. I honestly am. I don’t envy. I feel that I’m next in line, but I want someone else to get in my spot. Dang I sound stupid as I write this. But let me explain. There is a lot of work ahead of me I mean a lot. Start-up isn’t cheap or easy.I heard and feel the need and desire to be apart of my vision, but have no one passed me a fifty yet! 🙂

Right now my simple human eyes only see the right now. The kids, housing issue, etc. and I get a spirit of fear. Which isn’t like me at all.Not at all what I’ve been brought up to trust in. All of my needs have always been provided. Always! My biggest fear is doing it halfmoon. I take my calling as a mother,and professional so seriously. My goal of helping other mother raise full circle well children just won’t escape my hearts strings.  I’m not sure what to do. But I won’t give up. I’ll continue to do what I’m doing……till the next big push. So far here’s my four occurrences that have happened:ImageImageImageImageImage

 

 

Wednesday Wow: The Gift That 16.8 Million Families Need Most for the Holidays

The Gift That 16.8 Million Families Need Most for the Holidays

I know that you’ve max ‘d out that credit card didn’t you? Couldn’t help your self huh? Found any good deals? I was just told about a few sick shoppers bum-rushing into a store for some over the top- over priced sneakers? I call them sick minded because normal folks don’t do that.  It’s just sneakers. Of course, none of my readers would do anything like that.  If you’re in that group like me Christmas is far from your mind and change purse. I know you’re resting well and posted up on the couch drinking cider and watching those awesome specials. Now if you’re in that small group that has yet to shop-consider this.

1. Create a Budget & Stick to it.Plan who you are buying for and how much you are willing to spend before you start shopping and stick to it.  Try to come in under budget and reward yourself and the end of the holiday season for all of your hard work.

2.Remember What’s Important – The best part about the holidays is spending time with friends and family.  The memories that you create each holiday season won’t be about what fancy china was used at the dinner table or who got the most expensive gift.
3. Refinance & Skip a Mortgage Payment – If you have a mortgage rate higher than 4.5%, refinancing may make sense for you.  On top of that, if you refinance now you could skip December or January’s mortgage payment (depending on when you close.  -Don’t ask me how, I’m still renting)   A Home Loan Expert can provide more details.  You could use the money that would normally go toward your mortgage payment on gifts rather than racking up your credit cards.

If you don’t digest anything else, just keep his in mind-

4. You gotta live after the 25th right?  So shop better this year. Use these super fun and affordable tips!
