Once Upon a Time ~ Day 13
So yesterday's challenge was to write a narrative about living your future life now, and I was just too tired to do it then so I am gonna have to double post today. But this is my space so I can do that and if you don't feel like reading two then you have the right to click next cuz Luv gonna do what she gots to do and right now she gots to catch up in her assignments.
I am looking at my calendar seeing what days I can take off for my trip to Australia with my bff. We are going to have a blast. I am relaxing thinking about how much fun I had today, riding around on the boat looking at the peaceful view of the Chicago skyline. I am cherishing the happiness and peace I am feeling about my life and about where I am in life. I love being debt free.
I am so excited about being named minority business woman of the year. It was a hard road but I made it.. We made it. I have such a wonderful team. I cannot believe that I am running 5 separate business and a non-profit while being a loving mother and wife. I am financially sound and have make enough for a couple raining days.
I am learning and growing each and every day that I read God's word. There is so much I had forgotten or never paid attention to. I am so glad that I have chosen to educate myself on how to really become God's friend.
The free days are basically over. But so are the struggling, tongue to teeth days. I no longer fear opening my mailbox. I pay all my bills on time or early and have plenty of enough money to buy toilet tissue and buy the things I want and then some. I am financially sound. I have set up a retirement fund for myself and life insurance for the kids.
I have had all the surgeries I am going to need. I am mentally and physically healthy. I take time out for me to release, relax and relate. I am centered. I am going to get checkups on a regular basis and when I feel overwhelmed or scared, I pray or work out.. I also am getting plenty of rest which is key to staying mentally strong. I am actively swimming, skating and playing tennis.
My family life is wonderful.. I have mastered the art of patience. I have a great relationship with my son and my niece. I am absolutely loving being a wife. My husband is everything I have wanted and more. He makes me want to be a better wife, a better mother, a better friend. I love him so much.
I am doing my part to stay connected to my friends and to make sure I know what's going on in their lives. I write them snail mail often and I am going to go cruising with them next month. Just the girls. We gonna get out feet and hair wet and just enjoy being sister girls. I have mastered setting boundaries for people that tend to bring negativity into my life. I am loving them from a distance without allowing them to throw me off my square.
i am living the good life!
