The 100 Day Reality Challenge

I had a very hard day:


1-No job prospects;

2-Bills are way overdue;

3-I don't know how I'm going to take care of my financial responsibilities;

4-My BF did fracture his finger and he will be out of work for a couple of days...but at least he has some pain killers (good for him; better for me because he's easier to manager :)

5-I had an incident with some stranger at the Walmart parking lot...I was moments away from losing my temper and wanting to go out and hit her. Good thing my boyfriend was there or else I would have been in trouble for sure.

It's been very hard to be positive today, hard to find something positive.


I will accept this as a part of the process in this 100-Day reality challenge. Perhaps if I get a good night's sleep, I can think clearer and figure out what to do next. Besides go to my parttime job tomorrow, then going to school. It's not God's fault or anyone else fault but myself. I will have to have the strength to get throught this, is all.


Good night everyone. May God bless the road we all continuously travel :)

Thank you sooooo much, dearies <3 <3 <3 I really, REALLY appreciate it, more than you folks know. I was up early this about 4:30am, which is very early for me. My BF was up watching t.v. Come to find out, the pain meds are barely touching his comfort level. That's because he has a very high tolerance for pain, so when he finally "gets" there, it's probably at Level 9 or 10. Thank God he finally went to bed at around 5:00am, but I've been up since.


But it is all good. I will always find the ray of sunshine in a cloudy day. Now instead of rushing to the positive, I can explore the process of getting there, see what works for me, what doesn't...


One good note: I am able to borrow some money from my dotter to pay for one of the most pressing bills today. I just have to wait until the banks open to get some $$$, then go and pay for it. I still have two other pressing bills but those will have to wait until my financial aid check comes in...


THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR LOVELY SUPPORT! I feel like you folks are helping me to stand up and not drag butt so much :)))))))

HUGGLIES Sherry-Ann!

mmmg gurlie, we have ALL had those days now and again, GOOD for you for finding the wonderful things to be grateful for, and taking a moment to write them down.  That's a huge step in the right direction.  Loving Sunny's advice, sooo totally true, although not easy to do all of the time, but just trying to get there, is worth any and every effort.  Looking forward to you sharing news of the new job and financial freedom you've created for yourself!

Chin up gurlie, YOU are a MAGNIFICENT Creator!!!!

I am sorry to hear that you had a bad day. I do think it happens to the best of us. I would say after doing whatever you can to look for a job, financial aid, extensions for bills, and take care of your BF, you need to LET GO of your worries and focus on YOU! No wonder you almost lost your temper, you are under so much stress. What can you do to de-stress and give yourself some TLC?  I believe it is easier for the Universe to take care of you once you let go of the worries. What can you do that is calming, pleasurable, relaxing? Also, what can you think about that will raise your spirits? I have gotten advice recently to visualize my desires for the future and I found that helped. What do you want for your life in one year? Everyone says it but it's true--spend more time thinking about what want and love instead of what you don't want. I see below that you still have so many things to be thankful for which is amazing! Remember you are beautiful and worthy and you have a life full of wonder. Hold that sentiment in your heart and the rest will follow. I send you a big hug and lots of love!

I am thankful and grateful for all that I have in my life. I have a home for my family. We rent, but it is still our home, a place to rest and rejeuvanate. I am so thankful and grateful that even through hard times, we always have food on our table and the ability to have kewl things like computer access, cable to watch t.v. shows, my children have electronics to play with (they're young adults). There are many people who aren't this blessed, and I have to remember to be grateful for what we DO HAVE.

I am thankful and grateful for my beloved BF. We drive each other crazy, but it keeps us on our toes. He is a good man who made some mistakes, but hey...WHO HASN'T MADE ERRORS??? I am the last person to be putting people down because I've MORE than made my share of mistakes. He's hung in with me for over 16 years, through the good times and the VERY BAD times. I would miss him dearly if he were to be out of my life. I love him so much and am glad that I am with him.

I am thankful and grateful to have A JOB. It's okay that it's very parttime. I am working with people who I love and respect above and beyond. They are very good to me and appreciate the work I do for them. I am thankful that I got a .50 cent/hour raise. In other jobs (like when I worked at the hospital) I was lucky to get .25 cents an hour and be rated Outstanding! So I am so very thankful and grateful for my job.
