Home For The Weekends

Anytime I can come home is nice. My parents are letting me come home every other weekend. Still need to go back to the house on Hitson and pick up my medications. 

My son is still at school waiting for my sister Emily to pick him up. My Dad has gone dove hunting and we are all here at the house. 

My Dad bought me a pack of cigarettes and put the check in my bank account. Then left to go Dove hunting. Ready for whatever the weekend may bring.

Going home from the group home is completely necessary to stay saine.

Our Pets

My family has a dog named dixie who is a relatively big dog. He’s a gray healer and loves to chew on things. Also another Dog named Chloe a carrier terrier who is quiet and mind her own business. 

Two – Three cats. I love cats for the most part. 

Home Cooked Food

The food my family grew me up on. Especially my moms roast and it beats the cafeteria food we have at the center. Also Ms. Jefferson’s cooking is good but my parents is better it’s made with love. 

Money

Living on your own is expensive. I tend to spend at least $3 a day at the Family Dollar on drinks and cigars. Go about it the right way and you could get a dollar or two out of dear ol mom and dad.

Expectations Vs. Reality in Writing

Expectations Vs. Reality in Writing

The truth be told I love to write. Ever since I was young about 8 I was seen carrying around a notebook. I have owned all sorts of stationary. My favorite stationary character was Hello Kitty and sometimes Lisa Frank when I picked it up. 

I used to write a lot of peoms and even won a contest one time.  Lyrics and short stories we’re amongst my favorite. I have taken a creative writing course here at the Local community college TCC.

When we write do we really write for the entertainment of others or is it to be hidden in a journal where no one can see it? As a blogger I use most of what I write in that journal. 

Labor Day Sale is ON. Use Code: LABOR15 at checkout and Get 15% Off Site Wide. *Sale excludes Ray-Ban and Oakley products.

 

Right now it is a thin black journal for my blog topics while some I have gotten online. Doing my Pinterest research and digging through articles I find helpful. 

 

Expectations

I have had to write for so many of my college classes since I am a PR and ADVT major. I have big expectations for my writing and try to learn every day.

For this blog I need to be writing 8 times a week. Without fail in order to get more readers interested in what it is I stand for and have to write about. 

Reality

We aren’t born great writers and we don’t become great writers over night. It takes time and dedication to learn to write well. I suggest taking a class in Creative Writing when you get the chance if you haven’t already

While in reality I have been writing 5 to 8 times a week. That hasn’t built enough interest to my readers. While I appreciate all the readers I have gotten I know I can do better. 

One of my main goals is to be able to market and have some buyers for the things I Advertise here on my blogging platform.

Faithfully Gone Through

Faithfully Gone Through

Faith – firm belief in something when there is not proof. Complete trust; something that is believed especially with strong conviction.  (Webster Dictionary)

Trust is something I have and haven’t always been good at. We can learn to trust people more that we have gone through with people. The guy that drank up all my soda paid me back which was awsome.

My parents have faith in me the more I keep down the right road. My son has faith in me the more he has his mother around. Which my son just started school last Thursday. My boyfriend has more faith in me the more we talk and express to each other what we really need. 

Fiverr

 

Though all all in all faith really takes a foundation of trust and who to believe in.

 

 

One Day At A Time

Faith is built over time. As a New Christian you may say you automatically believe though do you really? Maybe you are at that point in your life right now. 

I have been a believer for over 10+ years. I have rededicated my life to Christ several times. Turned from the wrong paths time and time again. Made Christian friends then lost them though we are still friends on FB and social media. 

You have to learn that waking up with Christ is a One Day At A Time Thing and has to be continuous. We make a decision to wake up with Christ and depend on him and be on His Side. 

Walking Down The Road Together

Faith is confidence and trust in an unseen God. We have friends there to help us and communicate about what we don’t understand. We can walk down this road together by getting plugged in at Church of our local community. 

Knowing we all struggle right now really helps and there is proof. Not knowing what to do next helps us find a mutual ground. We can lend each other a helping hand and seek each others guidance. 

Somethings You Shouldn’t Have Faith In

Not all communities are good and clean there are some people you simply shouldn’t have faith in and need proof that aren’t good for you. Especially when they lie about you or put your reputation in jepordy. 

Gypsies & Witchcraft and special topics especially pertaining to World of War. I don’t hate this topic and I do think about it from time to time but it isn’t something to entertain your mind with.

Anything that will drag you down. If it’s not meant for you it’s something you should dissmiss and leave alone. Only do things that are meant for you and your lifestyle.

Blogging For Success

Blogging For Success

I have had about 500 page views for this first month. Not as good as I’d like to do but I have been putting my best effort in. With support from family and friends, I have seen some progress.

I have gotten no sleep and ready to crash out when I get to my twin bed. Got in trouble for smoking in the bathroom last night. Blogging gives me a purpose. My niche is lifestyle, faith, and self learning.

There haven’t been any affiliated sales but the numbers keep going up. I know I’ll make a sale sooner or later. I just have to stick with it. After all this is only month one.

I have written many other blogs before but never have I followed and tried to learn as much as I am now to make money from blogging. I need to pay off this debt so I can use the deferment to go back to school hopefully Texas Wesleyan.

Social Media Apps To Market From

Should only focus on 2 to 3 social media accounts to market your blog. I chose Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ to get the word out about my website. Although I do post something about my blog on most of these platforms from time to time.

Making More Page Views

Getting views is one of the most important things. Without views, you wouldn’t be able to run a proper website. I hope my views increases.

  • Use SEO – I use Yoast SEO and it only gives me one keyword and I type a synopsis into the about box and it seems to work OK.
  • https://www.shehustlesinc.com/traffic-growth
  • Quality & Quantity of Content
  • Outbound Links
  • Comment and Comment
  • Bookmarking Sites; Digg, Facebook, and Instagram

Views of Blogging as A Full-Time Gig

The best at home job that has hit the market. You can help people which my major is in PR and they can view how I write and try to help others. I can even work as a travel blogger eventually. Be patient and have a realistic outlook. Learn as much as you can at the beginning. Treat it like a business and post frequently and consistently. Build your mailing list using MailChimp.

Chinese Horoscopes’ = The Rabbit

Chinese Horoscopes’ = The Rabbit

Humanities Cultures & Beliefs

Last year I took a Humanities course at Texas Wesleyan and we slightly covered other religions and customs. The Chinese Horoscope is a tale that begins with the Jade Emperor, or Buddha, depending on the teller, who summoned all the animals of the universe for a race, or a banquet.The order that they came in determined the order of the zodiac.

Rat: (1984, 1996, 2008, add 12 years for each subsequent year)
Ox: (1985, 1997, 2009)
Tiger: (1986, 1998, 2010)
Rabbit: (1987, 1999, 2011)
Dragon: (1976, 1988, 2000)
Snake: (1977, 1989, 2001)
Horse: (1978, 1990, 2002)
Ram: (1979, 1991, 2003)
Monkey: (1980, 1992, 2004)
Chicken: (1981, 1993, 2005)
Dog: (1982, 1994, 2006)
Pig: (1983, 1995, 2007)

The animals endured different trials and the Rabbit won. Next to the Dragon due to tricks. The animals of the zodiac were brought to China via the Silk Road, the same central Asian trade route that brought the com/introduction-to-buddhism-449715″>Buddhist belief from India to China.

I Am A Rabbit

Long Suffering

Long Suffering

For some reason there is a difference between my jetpack’s stat results than my google analytics. I want to rely on my google analytics for my stats. So far I’ve had 446 page views. Which I wouldn’t consider bad for my first month of opening justly-found.faith.

I am in it for the long suffering anything good takes time and you have to be patient. I just bought our group home a broom so we don’t have to use the one with the broken handle. Two black and milds yeah my boyfriends favorite too bad he isn’t here to share them with me. Though he is here in spirit.

The Greatest Commandment “Love the Lord with all your heart and all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” The next is to “Love your neighbor as yourself”

God Is In The Long-Suffering

God goes in the long and extra mile sort of like 8 mile. With sinful and imperfect people. You have to forgive people especially if they’ve tried to change you in any way. Though you can’t be too lenient on how you let them into your life again.

God struggles with the Human Kind. Kind of like in our group home when one person messes up it seems like we all messed up and have to pay for it. God strives to work it out owning part of the problem.

Depending On Other People With Difference

You have to learn sometimes you can’t. Though people do the best they can and you have to bear in there with them through the difference. We’ve all done our part of messing up and I’m glad for forgiveness and to be given chances.

I chose to work with only one Affiliated Marketing company Rakuten Marketing to do my affiliated sales. Hopefully I don’t come off to sales and I really hope you do make a purchase and help me out. It’d be greatly appreciated.

Be The Kind Of Room Mate We Need

Be The Kind Of Room Mate We Need

We had a new roommate move in here. When this happens it can be a good experience or a bad experience. Now I really am starting to see the biblical phrase since “You are neither hot nor cold I will spit you out of my mouth”.

We have had three women come into our group home since the beginning of August. While only one has really stayed and gotten along with us and kept her mouth shut. In other words hasn’t argued with the rules. The other one was a 72 year old disabled woman who refused to stand up.

Well we are all disabled here but refusing to do something when they say you are perfectly capable is just not right. I also strained my back helping this lady up just to have her plop herself back on the concrete again. The other lady who is still here but we don’t know how long because she just said she was going to leave a few hours ago.

There is certain ways to make a clean entrance into an establishment like this group home.

It’s Not About You

When I first came to Cave Care it was a huge wake up call. I came off the streets of Lancaster and on the streets, everyone is your roommate. I was living on the streets of Fort Worth and just came out of the hospital mainly Millwood. My parents told me I had to start paying my check in order to go live in this group home.

I soon found out it is not about me. After being locked out once or twice that was enough for me and I decided to follow the rules.

 

Stop Griping

No one wants to hear whining and complaining all the time. Especially not violently but when it is no one in any sort of power. Not benefiting anyones good than its just annoying noise to your ears.

 

Past 30 Are You Grown Up Enough

Growing up we think we’re grown ups at the age of 12 some may say before then. We make a lot of stupid decisions like my chances with my vehicles, being reckless with people’s hearts, and squandering money. Pull your weight of the chores around here including washing the dishes and putting them away. Sweeping and mopping the floor and doing deep cleaning every once in a while.

 

In The end just be somebody WE want to be around

I believe it’s in everybody’s best interest to give everybody a chance. So make sure you set a good name for yourself. Meanwhile stop asking for cigarettes all the time from other people. This is the first time I have lived with several roommates in one room. My other roommate was back in Lake Charles and not so good of an influence.

Make your special day sparkle with elegant sophistication.Send your guests home with favors that are tasteful and practical. They will forever remember your wedding thanks to these beautifully designed styles.

 

Pride & Prejudice & Boundaries

Pride & Prejudice & Boundaries

Rebekah and Jacob from the bible Genesis 27 show a good correlation of boundaries of how getting people to do what you want isn’t always a good thing. Loving someone means you love them enough to allow them freedom. Which is owning what is ours while not dismissing what is ours. Or worse trying to own what belongs to others.

Our parents set us up hopefully for success. To make our own decisions in as an adult. While not trying to control their/our decisions. I use to think having my Dad as my payee set him up to be in charge of me. Though today I believe it is closer to freedom.

Today I’d like to talk about setting boundaries and how boundaries help us improve as people.

  1. Alone Time Take alone time from business – we can get so caught up in everyday life that we eventually feel like we are stuck in a rut. When we feel like there is no way out. Before this happens find peace and quiet by yourself. Reflect on yourself and your life away from business.
  2. Away From Negativity – If you have to be around them limit that time. Limit media consumption if it is too negative.
  3. Be Honest & Upfront In A Relationship – Others need to know how feel in a relationship. Maybe they’re getting to close and personal. It’s ok to tell them to back off a little bit.
  4. Taking Responsibility For Self – at the end of the day the only one you have to deal with is yourself. If your not ok than no one around you will be ok.
  5. Allow others to accept their responsibility for themselves & I do not try to accept their responsibility. – You can’t control other people or the way they behave.
  6. Prioritize Your Needs – We don’t always get what we want but we do get what we need.
  7. Get your happiness from gratitude not status – BE grateful for everything you have you don’t know when it’ll be gone.
  8. Be Honest with yourself about what you need & be realisitc – Be realsitic about the things you really need; food, water, and shelter. Don’t think the world owes you something.
  9. Don’t let resentment build up – It’s better just to let it go as soon as you feel it start.
  10. It is not my responsibility to take responsibility for others.

Self-Care Times of Need

Self-Care Times of Need

My parents bought some new furniture from Habitat For Humanity yesterday. Two couches and two chairs and two green lamps. All for under $1000. When I was younger my parents used to tell me they would help me furnish my apartment if I didn’t have a wedding.

Watching these two girls make slime all morning. They’ve made all sorts of slime and it’s kind of neat also really annoying. YouTube channels.

Just gave blood at MHMR and took a piss test. Had to come back to the group home last night so I could get this all done today. My son threw a fit because I had to go back to the group home. He wanted to stay with me and Dad and I wouldn’t let him.

Today I’d like to cover self-care ideas with you.

What Is Self-Care?

Taking the necessary steps to do all you can to take care of your health. Learning to love and protect yourself the best you can. Knowing your needs and knowing how to meet them.

Some Self-Care Things You Can Do

  • Journal: Write about anything also write about what you are grateful about
  • Take A Walk:
  • Nap: Lay Down for 20 Minutes at a time
  • Read: Try to read one chapter a day
  • Meditation: Try a meditation app and learn from it. One of my favorite is Simple Habit or Headspace

What are some of your favorite ways to take care of yourself? Mine is too get much needed rest and too journal on my blog.

I love my Qalo Ring in Hot Pink it’s comfortable.

This is something we need to do in order to take care of ourselves. We have to be able to take care of ourselves in order to take care of other people and things.
