One thing’s for certain…

Change is inevitable! This is true for anyone today. Nothing ever stays the same. Go to Walmart sometime and try to find your favorite product, it won’t be there or will be moved across the store. Your hair…just look back at some old photos. Healthcare, don’t even get me started there lol.

Anyway, some more changes around here at the house. No, no, I’m not selling Tupperware now too, on top of all my other dabblings… Colby is going back into school next year for eighth grade. It’s time, he’s bored and has really come into his own as far as making friends and needs some people his age to hang out with. He had the homeschool group he participated in, begrudgingly at first, but really did get into it towards the end of this year. It makes me a little (ok, a lot) sad that this chapter is closing, but I’m just super glad we got the opportunity to do it as long as we did and he enjoyed it, and is ready to do something different.

Things are well with Roberts’ job now, he gets home everyday usually by 3 and we get lots of time together now, that makes us all happy!! My job is going well, still enjoy my flexibility of working from home. I’m very excited about my launch party for Pure Romance next Thursday evening! I wake up everyday going through it in my head and making sure I have everything planned out. If you didn’t get an invite on Facebook and are interested in coming, just send me a message and I can add you to the event page. It’s going to be awesome!!

I’m loving life and I am just so blessed, changes can be good sometimes, even if they are scary!! Hope you all have a great day!

New venture

If you have been following along, you will see that I have hinted around to some changes coming to my life…well, they are here.

Before I divulge too much, let me give some background as to why I am now doing what I’m doing. I am a nurse. It was a calling for me to be that in my life. I love to help people, specifically women. I was in women’s health for six and a half years. I miss it, but it also now love my job working from home so I wouldn’t trade that. But…I needed to get out of the house and be around some people again. So……I am now a Pure Romance consultant. I am excited to be doing this and see it as an extension of my nursing, I want to empower, educate and entertain women. Plus it will be fun!!

If you aren’t interested in having a party or even coming to one, that’s fine. I can answer any questions or tell you about any of our products any way you want to contact me. I am discreet and non judgemental, and totally confidential.

I hope to hear from you soon!!

Random deep thinking

What kind of legacy and testimony are we leaving behind when we go? Will people remember us for how good and faithful we were or how we yielded to temptation and created strife? Life is hard, we were never promised it would be fair. We are not here for long at all, we should try to leave it a better place than when we got here.

I was not good in nursing school with behavioral health. I am not compassionate enough to understand those issues, I guess. I understand depression is real and hard to overcome, but I believe it’s a lot of times brought on people themselves by being under conviction from God over certain things in their life they have done and haven’t got forgiveness for. I also am becoming more and more convinced that certain medications out there for anxiety are brain changing substances that create addictions which just compounds the depression and at the same time, adding an addiction, or what I see as a crutch for people to use.

I believe medication alone is not a treatment for mental health. It takes counseling with a professional to get to the root of why the person feels they are depressed, anxious, hurt, rebellious, and addicted. Talking is powerful…this is why I blog, it makes me feel better, it’s one of my stress reliefs. The keyboard becomes my counselor and it’s like therapy to get things off of my chest and out of my head.

I am by no means even close to perfect, but I do feel that I can handle stress in my life and still be a happy person, even with alllllll of the stupid crap I have done in my past that if I wanted to ponder on it for the rest of my life, could make me depressed too. I have put that stuff under the blood and moved on. That is all we can do.

I lost a good friend yesterday, she had a lot of sad hard times in her life, but she always was smiling and sweet and everyone loved her. That is her legacy she left. This may seem like a bunch of totally different topics that I am writing about, but in my head and with a situation I am dealing with, it makes sense to me.

I guess the main things that are running through my head is this, suck it up, move on, live a good life that’s as pleasing to God as you can, enjoy your family, it’s really all you have and if you run them off you won’t have anything but heartache, get help if you need it, smile through the tears, and laugh often, get addicted to good things, always look for the positive even if it’s hard to find, and leave a legacy you, your family, and God will be proud of.
