Empty nest, be normal.

So the kids have grown and they say empty nesters are normal. Quietness is normal. Depression is normal. Then they come with their kids is normal. I don’t know what is normal.

Sleeping in is supposed to happen but I wait to see it. I get less sleep now kids are gone. Worrying what they are  doing, are they ok? I thought it was me but I’ve talk to several moms. Youngest is off to college and I’m constantly worrying about her. Hoping she’s not getting into the party life, and being safe at night when most of her classes are.

I think back on the years I had to play mom and dad, because father only came to see children on Holidays. It became so surreal when the kids started calling him the holiday daddy. The struggles of being a single mom are real.

Then I look  back and I did the best I knew how.    But no one told me about the empty nest and what to do next.  Is this where middle age crises sit in. Is there a book or guide I go by. Maybe a vacation, or trip some where or even a cruise, then I look back and no one is hanging to the shirt tail. Where did they all go?

Starting over the 100th time

Starting over for the 100th time. Ready to give up life, reality. Questioning “why me”. Why go thru it again. People say don’t give up but then they turn their backs and your alone again.

So here we are again and I should of stay but because I wanted to be super hero I drove off to the other side. Instead of sticking it out and be consistence and discipline to myself  I was digging myself deeper, deeper.

All sound like something you have been thru? How many times have you started over and landed the same place you started? Life carries weight on us and some of it we can’t avoid.

Some of it is like a train wreck.

Soo it all comes back to consistent and discipline ! Its all black and white with no pretty colors. It all pretty simple, it doesn’t have to be anything hard about it. I’m leaving you with positive vibes and everything nice. Wishing you a great holiday and remember 2020 is a new year, starting over is not hard!

Take control of your attitude!




Take control of your attitude and stay positive! Change your attitude, change your life! Let me give you an example, for a child if he doesn’t want to learn most general he isn’t going to learn until he changes his attitude. If we take the attitude of we can’t do something, we probably won’t do it! If we take the attitude of failure then we probably will!

Things in life are not a bed of roses, its full of thorns and thistles and we are going to scrap our self’s. We probably will even fall down but with the right attitude we can get back up again. A child falls off his bike for the first time, we encourage him to get back up and try it again!   Its the same in business, something not working then step back  and re-evaluate the situation and try something else! Get out of your comfort zone! So what we accomplish in life we can agree is due to our attitudes!

Some people don’t like change and some get down right mean when it comes to change but you have to look at it as a new opportunity and getting out of your comfort zone. Doing things differently, I had to deal with change and I have a OCD problem until my child looked at me and said “Mom can I please play with my toys,? I will have to move them” I knew I had to deal with change. My attitude I had to change. I had to train it and it wasn’t easy and still till this day its still not easy and its 21 yrs later.

Now look at the top of your company and see why they succeed. They are positive, cheery and outstanding, they are no better than you and I! We can be the positive, cheery and outstanding as long as we take the change of attitude. But they found the right attitude and accepted they may fail but they don’t dwell on it. They set goals and they go after what they want!

Now some are waiting for the world to change but it won’t change unless your attitude changes! Because everyone sees the world different!

How to make Facebook work for you!

How’s everyone doing? Wondering why so many people succeed at this game of numbers? Do you know what socializing really means?facebook

Lets get started I’m going to give you a couple of ways that you should work in your every day life and it really shouldn’t take more than an hour a day! First of all lets look at your friends on Facebook , you should be adding more friends daily to have more of audience and let more people see your post. maybe 5 people a day. Don’t want to go to Facebook jail! lol Then message them a thank you for adding you! Get to know the person!

Posting on your business pages and sharing with to your profile page is a must! You need to be posting of at least 20 times a week! That averages out to 3 post a day! Posting during the busiest times is morning when people are reaching for the coffee between 7 and 9 am and then again between 8 and 10 pm  when people are settling down for the evening! You can schedule your post and be done for the rest of the day! 12 out of 20 should be about branding yourself. Such as random fun post, asking questions, asking advice, photo of family or friends. 6 should be inspirational post. and then a couple about your product before and after shot without ever saying the company name. Then a power post it paints a picture of what life could be like,

Comment and like post. Just liking their post usually doesn’t do much. When someone looks nice tell them, Interact with people! Always tell people Happy Birthday, doesn’t it brighten your day when someone takes time out to do that for you? If someone is having a bad day, send a positive message! Facebook is all about socializing. Don’t get distracted and get to the game first save that for later.

Love teaching others as well as my self. I’m always learning something new everyday! Hope this gives you some tips on Facebook!
