Searching for the Silver Lining.

Sipping a cup of coffee...a large cup of coffee staring at the screen trying to figure out what I want to say today.  I have lots I want to say but to get it to form a thought for you to read, one that is witty and clever, is escaping me today. 

For a couple of weeks, it felt like everything was falling apart and I'm suddenly seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.  I hate to say this though, I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.  This, coming from the epitome of an optimist.  Maybe it is just a rut.  Maybe I'm turning into a cynic. But the optimist in me doesn't want to believe that!  Ironic, no?

Two awesome things are going to happen this week...I get to tell TXU to shove it and I am actually looking forward to getting my new electric bill from Amigo Energy and I will no longer have a car payment.  We'll start from there and see if I have a new outlook by my next post!

Ever Had One of Those Days?

Hello Everyone!

Have you ever just had "one of those days"? Lately, it seems that everyone is! Life likes to throw curveballs once in a while. It is what you do with those curveballs that makes or breaks you. Recently, I have had to sit down and rediscover my "why" for a lot of things in my life.

Events as of late has made me take a hard look at my life. Recent struggles have really put things in perspective. I'm making the promise to myself to truly dedicate myself to things that I hadn't wholeheartedly had before.

Health and fitness. What a big one! I thought to myself, "My family is number one in my priority. Why am I allowing myself to live with high blood pressure? Why am I staying over weight?" Bingo. Focus, Tianne! My home business allows for me to keep chemicals out of my house and I do that for my son, why shouldn't I give myself the best too? I'm cutting out all of the poison out of my life.

Home Business. Life was throwing me those pesky curve balls left and right and I lost focus with my home business. Now I work for a great real estate team and I'll be doing that too soon as well but I am still wanting to get back on track with my home business. The company offers stability, health, wholesome values..what more can I ask for? So for now, I make a promise to myself to dedicate 8 hours per week to my home business. Small amount of time for a HUGE gain. For those of you

Wifehood. My husband is my world (next to my bean) and I want to make sure that he knows that every day for the rest of our lives. I have always made an effort to do so but now it is even more critical.

I gave myself an allotted period of time to wallow and run from the issues. Now it is time to put my big girl panties on and charge forward!
