The Grocery Checkout Lady Made Me Cry

A Moment At The Grocery Checkout Brings Tears

Today was a very emotional day from the moment I woke up. Lately I have been reflecting on my life….that happens more and more as I get older.

March 14 is an anniversary of a tragic moment in my life that happened 43 years ago when I was in college. I’m not getting into that since it’s not the reason for this blog and I really don’t want this to be a bummer and sad blog.

The reason I’m writing is to share about a person (my adopted mother) that had an incredible impact on my life. I was adopted at the age of fourteen and will be forever grateful to have had her in my life. If you’ve read my other blogs you will know what I mean.  Today at the grocery store my checkout lady looked and acted just like my mother and I started to cry. I miss her so much and miss talking to her. We lost my mother to cancer and not a day goes by that I don’t think about her.

When we are young we take are parents for granted. I want to include an article that was written about my adopted parents. This will show what awesome people they were and how they helped people.

Gasts honored for volunteerism

With over 25 years of dedicated service, it is no wonder Bob and Marge Gast from Warsaw, Ind., have been named the Territorial Volunteer Family. What they have done to serve others through The Salvation Army could fill volumes, but here’s a glance.

Marge is a past advisory board member and a long-standing women’s auxiliary member. Both she and her husband work tirelessly on fundraising projects, including the auxiliary’s annual fruit and nut sale and the soup and pie luncheon. They have been instrumental in starting an auxiliary children’s fashion show and luncheon which raises funds to buy school clothes and shoes for underprivileged children. The Gasts also regularly purchase food and prepare the meal for the youth program on Wednesday nights. During the holidays, they’re on kettle duty, help with the Angel Tree and league of mercy.

They also serve their community by helping with senior center activities, and Bob heads up organization of Mobile Meals delivery through the Rotary Club. While they’re active in their own church, they support special events at the corps and Marge regularly attends the corps’ women’s Bible study.

The Army salutes you, Bob and Marge, for your Christian witness, commitment and service!

 I thank God everyday for bringing this beautiful family into my life. The article didn’t mention that they had 4 children and then adopted three of us…..that’s because they thought of us as their children……not once did we EVER feel different because we were adopted.  The same goes for their 4 biological children. We were brothers and sisters from the day we were adopted. I am a very lucky person! Cherish your family and have a great day!

Crazy Ass Family On The Loose-Why We Do IT

Crazy Ass Family On The Loose

My first video using iMovie app on my iPhone. It is great for making videos! I got to get a Mac computer! I was playing around with the iMovie app on my phone and just kept going. It turned into my video I named ‘Crazy Ass Family On The Loose.’ It was so much fun! So easy to do. As I mentioned I don’t have a Mac, but definitely will be getting one. (By the way… I don’t work for Apple….I wish!)

Hi, it’s no joke we are a crazy ass family on the loose when we are out and on vacations. We have so much fun on vacations as you can see. There’s so much more I could have shared, but it would have turned into a movie. Some that would have been embarrassing for us… lol

My husband and I work from home and love the freedom that it gives us. My daughter and dogs love the fringe benefits of being home together. It’s great to decide at a moments notice, to travel of just do what we want, when we want.

We play hard! And we work harder! If you are like us. then you need to join our crazy ass family on the loose! Have fun with fun down to earth people.

Why New Year’s Resolutions Don’t Work

Here’s Why New Year’s Resolutions Don’t Work

Would you like to know the real reason why New Year’s Resolutions don’t work? The number one problem is we write down 47 goals we are going to start accomplishing on Jan1st. Why all of a sudden is everything going to change on Jan1st? That’s crazy!… plus it’s not going to happen.

Here is the exact process I have been doing for the last few years.

The first thing you should do is write a vision of exactly what you want 2017 to look like. A vision is a picture. Clarity is power. Make that vision as detailed as possible.

The next big reason why New Year’s Resolutions don’t work is that you have no reason why you’re doing what doing. You have no Purpose or WHY. Let’s change that now. Look at your vision and write down three reasons why you want this vision to happen. Make sure these are your real why. They should make you a little emotional.

Now here is the biggest reason why New Year’s Resolutions don’t work.

You should only have three goals. Yes, I said three and no more. There is something called channel capacity which is scientifically advanced research that says your mind can only hold three things at a time. You can only focus on one thing, but you can keep three things at one time in your mind. That’s why Tony Robbins always says one, two, three overwhelm. You reach overwhelm with more than three.

So Identify the three biggest Outcome Goals that will create the vision for 2017. These three outcome goals are what will paint the picture of your year. These are the results or as some people call them product goals.

Now identify the process goals for each outcome goal. These are daily actions, outcomes or at the most weekly actions that when you execute your results will be achieved. The best way to identify the real needle movers is to write down every action you can think of and then identify the top three.

These three process goals need to be blocked into your calendar for the 12 months and protected like they are a dentist or a doctor’s appointment. If you erase it, you must replace it. You need to be a finisher.

Here is what I consider the thing that will make everything work:

Create three 12 week goals that will move you towards your One Year goals. Make sure that the process goals you identified earlier will achieve your 12-week outcome goals. Then focus on those process goals every day as your life depended on it and you will achieve your outcome goals as a by-product of that execution.

Execution and consistency are the keys to success!

Here’s one last point to really fine tune your plan. Write a 12 Week vision and identify three reasons why you want that 12-week vision.

My hope is this video has explained to you why New Year’s Resolutions don’t work and now you have the process that will make your 2017 the best year ever.

Tired Of Teaching And Want To Work From Home

You are tired of teaching and want to work from home?

Well join the crowd …so was I!  I am a retired teacher. I retired early about seven years ago in 2010. I was tired of the lack of interest of the students and living paycheck to paycheck. I knew that there had to be something better in store for me and found it…at least I thought I had.

I thought I had made it. My husband and I were working online and called ourselves internet marketers. Boy were we wrong! It wasn’t as easy as I thought, we didn’t have the skill set we needed.

We were successful at first since we had had some training, but it didn’t last long. As we all know the economy fluctuates and if you don’t keep up with the times…… are in for a big surprise.

Luckily we didn’t give up and because of it and aligning ourselves with top internet marketers we have been introduced to what we have been looking for.

We found Digital Altitude which is an Online Step by Step Training University ……that’s why I call it! I can learn and earn at the same time. I wasn’t able to do that while I was in college learning…………….

If you are tired of teaching and want to work from home…it’s with us!

If you are looking how to make money and learn the internet marketing skill from the top internet marketers………….you are in the right place!

Your Past Does Not Equal Your Future

Remember…Your Past Does Not Equal Your Future!

As I get older and really more recently, I have been reflecting on my life and the many decisions I would have made differently.  Why is it that we are so much more aware as we get older? I’ve thought about how I would have been more studious, a different major, visited my parents and family more often, financial decisions, taken better care of myself and the most important one- Not have been so selfish!

In general, I have been a good person and have many friends and a great family. Just have taken them more for granted. As I approach another year, I want to become a better person and this video spoke to me.  I wanted to share this and let you know that Your Past Does Not Equal Your Future!  its mine

This is an excellent video with an excellent message to all and give us hope to become that best that you can be and not let the past determine your self-worth.
