What I’ve learned… Day 7 – Better Me Challenge

I have learned several things about myself such as…

I have no patience. As a person who tries to get my to do list done ASAP, I find that I am putting too much pressure on myself to get my list done to every day.

I find I am getting frustrated with myself because I am not drinking enough water. Not the amount that I want to be drinking. I feel dehydrated and slow all the time. I always thought I was a patient person, but now I find myself praying for patience before I lose my mind.

Someone at work recently told me I worked too fast and needed to slow down. I was aggravated because I thought why weren’t they speeding up? Now I am trying to work at a good pace, but now a pace that is too fast or slow. Patience People, Patience…

I have to curb my spending habits. I immediately cut down the extras on the grocery list and cut out going out to eat but something else has to give. I need to really take a look at my spending habits, understand where the money is going and save some of it for emergencies.

It seems that when I do get a little extra money, we spent it on food-take out because I am exhausted. I have made a plan to come up with a few items that will only take thirty minutes or more so I no longer have an excuse. Like frozen hamburgers or making Quesadillas filled with cheese and chicken.

Good News is that I have started blogging again, something I enjoy and really missed. I spent almost two hours talking to my middle son-Ryan who just made me laugh, but gave me great business advice as well.

It felt so good to reconnect with my now grown son. He is so wise beyond his years. It really does me good to talk to him.

Day 7 has really turned into a great day. I have learned a lot and I’ve been very productive with just much more to come. I loved day 7.

What will the rest of the week be like? Wait and see.

I am a single parent of three wonderful children. Two boys who are grown and live out on their own and a teenage daughter at home. I have gone through a lot of drama with divorce and sickness- just to start, but have found my way out of the shadows and I am ready to motivate and empower women with what I have learned. Being unqualified is exactly what makes me qualified. I work full time in the corporate world, I'm a parent, and I resell products on several different online platforms. Last, but the most important, I am a Christ follower at Church By The Glades.
