Keep Your Eye on The Prize

Last night I had myself a little pity party, because I had to work till 8:30pm last night and was utterly exhausted. I kept thinking to myself, there's gotta be a better way to make a living.

Then I started thinking of the people I know who have been without work for well over a year. For them, they would feel lucky to regain the feeling of working hard in exchange for a paycheck they could count on.

This post is an effort to shake off the negativity of last night and count my blessings. So I don't have the job of my dreams. It's still up to me to make my dreams come true. One day at a time. That means setting aside time every day to do that.

On Sunday, I had a deep tissue massage and at the end of the session, the massage therapist looked down at me and said very sternly: "You have WAY too much tension in your shoulders and your neck. Either come once a week for a month or come back for a 90 minute session. I can't perform miracles in just an hour."

This morning my neck is so stiff I can hardly turn it.  Ever since I got breast cancer,  I will never underestimate how stress negatively impacts the body. That's when I go off into my fantasy world of winning the lottery so I can quit my job and live happily ever after--stress free.

I keep looking over at the unpaid bills and mentally tally up the commissions I have yet to make in order to pay everything up. There's quite a gap. That's how it all starts.

So I guess I will just start with this quote to get me going for the day:

Some people dream of success... while others wake up and work hard at it.  ~Author Unknown
