Happy MLK day tmw

Tomorrow is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I’ve always honored Dr. King’s Day and yesterday we went to see the new movie Selma. It’s was a sad and tearful moments. It’s very admirable and courageous what each person did and their determination to keep marching. Dr. king was very brave and an honorable man as well as Corretta.

President Obama winning Presidency is a huge accomplishment & has opened so many doors for young people’s future. It’ll be interesting to see our Presidents over the next couple decades. Who will run and who will win.

During the movie Selma, I wanted to take a picture of them marching so bad. It would be cool to post here, but I never want to disturb anyone during a movie as I appreciate silence during a movie and I didn’t want to disturb the moment. The movie theater was completely silent and you could feel the emotion of pride. Everyone clapped at the end of the movie.

‘White Oleander’ Author: What Makes Greatness?

Janet Fitch's Blog

This question was posed for me by a reader on my Goodreads page. For me, the best questions are the ones that make me think more deeply about the issues involved. This was a good one:
#
 “What makes a great story/book? There are so many writers out there, but only a few get any acclaim, and some of the best posthumously. It is a herd mentality that snowballs into popularity?”
 #
The questioner is actually asking four separate questions here.
1. What makes a great story?
2. What makes a great book?
3. Why do only a few books get acclaim?
4. Is it a herd mentality that snowballs a book into popularity.

I answered them in order–but Number 2 is the one that interests me most.

Mind focused on success

image

I wake up in the morning with my goals in mind and excited. Some of my goals are money based to provide for myself and my child. Who is both a blessing and a teacher. Motherhood changed me for the positive.  I’ve been “broke” ever since having a child as a totally single Mom. But as I look back, my habits and money mind set is the same for the most part. That is what needs correction. My mind needs to be refocused towards my ability to acheive success and to beleive I can acheive what others around me have acheived.

One hang up I’m trying to get rid of is a frustration that all those successful people I see are men (they generally can go out and work “24 hours” a day if they want to) & (can focus on side jobs after work-wife takes care of kids); 😜 The women are married with successful high paid husbands or divorced with high child support and a rich ex. I’ve never seen a financially successful single Mom in my meeting people or not any single Moms. Oh I just thought of one single Mom that I persoannly know. That’s one!⭐️ She has always made very good money for the past couple of decades. So now I know I can. I have A lot of catch-up to do.☀️

I need to constantly redirect my mind to get it positive, myself confident and I think I need to try harder and for the long haul.

I am Grateful: I can go out into the world and share myself and get to know others today.

Another day going to work as Receptionist

Today I’ll go to work with the same intention of observing.

I am going to study writing under more about writing skills. In hopes to make some sort of a living writing.

as a receptionist in ministry did they tend to not hire temps. Therefore I’m staying at a lower rate for as long as I’m there, The matter what office to go to.

Learning a new skill is a good way i’m thinking, to break out into cycle of being a temp.

Yesterday 1/12/2015: I went to the bank and had $5 in my checking. Still $3 in Savings (Custodial). Today I got paid. Every week I buy food, gas to drive to work, monthly I pay rent.  I live weekly by my paycheck. So obviously I need to focus on acquiring what Rich Dad Poor Dad says: an incoming producing asset.  Whatever that will be for me. I don’t think it will be  real estate for me. But another skills or a purchase of something else I am more interested in. This is a journey for me.  But I feel like at my age of 49 years old.  I’m late, really late and messed up.

But I had a lot of childhood upbringing issues to sort out.  Now being older and wiser about how people think and about myself that I can try to focus more on a new skill.

My thoughts and posts need to be focused on what I want only and my life as I want it to be.

Has anyone out there ever read the book: The Science of Getting Rich? by Wallace D. Wattles. He says live in the imagined life and financial state that you desire as if it is current with Gratitude and Faith.

What I’m thankful for: I’m awake, I can walk talk hear & see.

Off to work today as a Receptionist on my Temp job

imageToday I will observe and try to see if I can get a feel for any new opportunities.

I tend to talk too much and eager to say hello (even on Mondays I’m up and ready to go!) but I’m going to be polite and really observe everyone around me and learn from that experience today.
