Pushing Through The Challenges

Pushing through the challenges of life in general can be hard.  Not to mention work, kids, all the adult responsibilities we all face.  This last year has been hard.  My husband has had five major operations in the last two years.   Each one with different challenges.

My biggest challenge has been balancing taking care of his health needs, working a full time job, recruiting for two network marketing companies that are new to the direct sales market IPro Network Creating Your Future Now and Vitae Global – Products are fabulous .  While I’m doing all of this I forget to look out for the most important person,  Me!  When someone you love is having health issues the last thing a caregiver wants to do is complain about how their feeling to the one person they’re caring for. 

I will admit that I have let my blogging suffer, my success goals and determination to meet those goals has gone down quite a bit.  It’s not because I don’t desire to complete what I set out to finish.  By the time I am home, tending to my husband and what he needs it’s already so late at night I barely have time for myself. 

Caregiver Action is a great resource for anyone needing to find solutions, ideas, advice on caring for ones self.   

For instance in this article 10 Tips for Family Caregivers the number one thing is seeking other caregivers for support.  You are not alone! Second, take care of your own health so that you will be strong enough to take care of your loved one.  Number five – Caregiving is hard so take respite breaks often.  (That I know I don’t do enough of). Lastly give yourself enough credit for doing the best job you can in one of the toughest jobs there is.

The biggest challenge for me has been keeping up with a positive outlook and mindset.  In network marketing most of us are taught keeping positive, working on one’s self image and being persistent will out weigh the negativity, the dark days of feeling overwhelmed and helpless.

How have I been able to get through all of this you might be wondering?

PRAYER! 

Prayer – I am a born again christian I firmly believe in the power of prayer.  Jesus Christ gives me strength everyday and my hope lies in him

READING!  

Reading keeps my mind focused and clear headed towards my personal goals.

These are the main two I can actually say I focus on at this time.  I am sure there are other things; however they must be suppressed at the moment.

As always,

For A Single Moment We Forgot Hate

On August 21, 2017 something amazing happened. 

 Most of you are probably aware that there was a phenomena in the sky called a sloar eclipse.  The solar eclipse encapsulated the United States of America and the world for a few shinning moments. 

When I saw this meme on Facebook posted by Damien Von Dunn I knew it spoke volumes.  

Frederick R Barnard first wrote the phrase, ” One look is worth a thousand words“, in Printer’s Ink, December 1921.”

 If one look is worth a thousand words then I found a picture worth a million.

Where were you during the solar eclipse?

Many people traveled across the country to catch a glimpse of totality while other’s stayed home, went to work or school.   

Where was I?   I was at work in my office.  However one of my colleges brought in a pair of glasses to share with anyone who wanted to take a peek.   If you missed it click this link to see NASA’s Solar Eclipse Photos.  

And for a single moment, our nation stopped, and looked up at the sky and forgot about hate

Lately I’ve been ashamed of the ugliness, hatred and bigotry gripping the United States of America.   What has happened to getting along with each other? Settling our differences in a calm and collective manner?  

I’m not going to get on a soapbox here, however I am disgusted at the actions some people choose to participate in this past weekend. 

Can we just all get along?

Where is the love?

Has love escaped us?  Has common sense left the world? Every man, women and child should be reaching deep into their hearts, finding the love, pulling it out and spreading it around.  

Enough with wars, violence and hate.   Waylon Jennings said it best when he sang “Let’s get back to the basics of love”.

So another eclipse has come and gone.  The world stood silent in amazement for just a few moments in time forgetting all it’s cares and worries to bring peace.  I wonder when soldiers are fighting in war and on Christmas Eve if at one point they stop everything and listen for the peace?

I hope you found this inspiring and as always I welcome your feedback.

Father’s 

Happy Father’s Day! 

My Father passed away in August 1993.   Reverand Frank R Agnew will always be remembered. 

 He always taught me to lean into the wind and ride out the storm.  In the end you will come through it being a stronger person.
Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s here and in heaven. 

Let Freedom Ring

America, The United States of America, The USA are all names for this great country I live in. 

 The United States has been in it’s share of confrontations within itself and others. 

In 1775 America went to war against Great Britian to keep her freedom.  Thus the American Revolutionary War began.  

As General George Washington led his troops through freezing rains,  wind and snow he never gave up and never quit!  By the ending of the war he was more feared and respected then any other war icon of his time.
The American Civil War took place in 1861 thru 1865.  It was a war between the Northern and Southern regions.

Many more times Americans would find themselves caught up in fighting for either their ways of life or the common good of man kind.

Millions and millions of brave men and women have given their lives to keep the bells of freedom ringing in America.

Throughout history so many lives have been lost, the ground soiled red with the blood of men who heeded the call for freedom.  

Memorial Day

Memorial Day marks a time of remembrance honoring those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country. 

Something you may not know.

The National Moment of Remembrance encourages all Americans to pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation. As Moment of Remembrance founder Carmella LaSpada states: “It’s a way we can all help put the memorial back in Memorial Day.”

Please take a moment on Memorial Day at 3:00 pm no matter what time zone you’re in to be silent. 

Thank you to those that have given their lives to Let Freedom Ring!
