Wishing You The Best For 2017

lets-make-this-year-awesome

Wishing you and your family the best for the new coming year. I hope we have all learned, appreciated, and value all the lessons 2016 had to offer. Some were not the best, some were very painful as we lost dear friends and family members.  Our financial struggles might have gotten better, others might have gotten worse.  Relationships flourished while others had to walk away.

Still, we are all here! Promising ourselves this new coming year will be better, and it will!

I have tremendous faith in you. You will make it happen!

Let’s Make Some Noise!  Happy New Year 2017!

Let’s Make 2017 Awesome!

Divorce 101

Hi everyone, you have all become a part of my family and I give thanks for visiting my blog. Today I will be discussing my opinion on this topic. I hope it helps someone out here.

Fighting Couples

Divorce is never easy. We all go thru some changes in our life and adding divorce to the pot really doesn’t help at all.

It really doesn’t matter how many times you have been thru this it really doesn’t get any easier. Your life as you have known it for a while has turned again. You need to get yourself out of these murky waters and re-evaluate what you want out of this.

 

For starters Think about yourself. Yes “Me” comes first and the rest will follow. You will have does moments that you will feel you made the right decision and you will have other moments when you are second guessing yourself. So Stop!

Do not second guess yourself. Move forward. The same energy and dedication you put yourself thru trying to make the relationship work are now needed in order for you to survive.

I know, going it alone is not easy. You now have the added stress of feeling like you failed again, but you didn’t. Commend yourself for walking away. Yes, you will still have the same financial problems from the past, but you are now in control to handle them.

No matter what, children are always hit the hardest. Lossing a parent or a segregate can be very hard on them. Explain the best you can, why this is happening. Do not make promises you cannot keep. Regardless, if those children are biological or not it will impact them emotionally and they are hurting too.

If this is your first divorce or you have been thru this before. I can assure you, they are not the same as it wasn’t the same in your relationship. If you need time for yourself, take it.

If you do not have the luxury to have time, financial matters need to be set and met. Then handle that first. Get a job, set a budget, maintained your household. Economised were you can, and do without were you can. Once you are stable enough you will be able to expand and get those added luxuries again.

Set realistic goals for yourself. Meet them head on. Do not give up. Be confidence.

You do not have to do this alone. There are others that have gone thru this and are always there to help. So seek them out. Join a support group. It helps to talk about it. You can do this.

I believe in you, and you will be okay. As I am going to be okay as well.

Is your blog used as a stepping stone by others?

person-1627693_1920

Is your blog use as a stepping stone by others? If you answered yes, you are right. No matter how much you try to protect your blog or  you did your  best with copyrights. Your blog can and will be used by others as a bridge to get better status.

Should you be sore about it? No. The reason you made a blog was to share information. As long as you get the recognition from the other bloggers you should be fine.

So why they have more followers than you? I know it’s not for the lack of trying. Remember these rule:

  • You need to blog every day
  • You have to be consistent with your chosen theme
  • You have to let people know you are out there. The web is huge, you are just a speck in its infinitive universe.
  • Social Media plays a huge part in this as well.
  • Choose your topic well.
  • Grammar is everything. Double check or even triple check for errors.
  • Pictures get their attention.
  • Captivate your audience with your title
  • Make sure you keep their interest so they can keep visiting your site.
  • Accept comments and engage with your audience. Make them feel special.

Never give up on your dream. If this is what makes you happy and you are dedicated to it do not stop.Maybe your stardom to fame will come later than sooner. You are here to built a solid foundation, not a trend or a passing wonder that eventually people will get tired of it.

Things Happen For A Reason…..

ecclesiastes-3-5-6

Good Morning, everyone. I hope your weekend was fruitful.

This morning while checking my daughter’s backpack I came across her bible verse for this week.

It got me thinking. I know we all have questioned one time or another, events that have happened close to us, and sometimes not so close.

I believe this verse should get you in the right direction to the answers you seek.

Enjoy your Monday. Remember to think positive. All things happen for a reason.

We may not like the answers we seek, but the truth never lies.

Do Numbers Really Count….

person-1627693_1920

Do numbers really count for you when you blog? Are you blogging for money, recognition or just because you enjoy spending time writing content on your blog?

Do you have a Twitter or a Facebook Account? Does it bother you when you lose followers or friends in these accounts? Does it make you lose sleep wondering, what you did wrong?

When you started blogging, the main reason was to help others with the knowledge you have. To seek others like yourself and share your information.

For me, it has never been about any type of monetary compensation. It has been about sharing my opinion. Sharing the articles, bringing more awareness to issues that matter most to us.

For the new bloggers out there, welcome to the blogging world. My advice to you, write about what you like. Do not worry how many followers you have or didn’t get today. You are informing a community, you are helping someone out there with your words.

The road to knowledge

 

You have opened a road, “the road of knowledge”, you are their voice. You are their inspiration. The words you write today will be immortal. Choose them well.

Have fun! Bring irony to the situation, but most of all always bring hope and peace in the article you write. You have taken a very important job. Self-satisfaction will be your reward.
