Taking a Step into a new career path...

A couple of weeks ago I decided to take a leap to become a Real Estate Broker Associate. Those close to me know this is definitely something I have talked about and pondered on for several years now. Even my hair Stylist knows and she would always ask me if I had decided to go for it yet. When praying about different job options, this was always the first thought in my mind.  What has kept me from it before was fear of not being able to do it, and also using money to take all the classes and tests.  Fear of failure honestly has not been a part of my vocabulary, so that is a hard one to admit. Those that know me, know that when I set my mind to something I go for it!  I signed up for the classes and decided to go for it. I am about half way through my on line courses and let me tell you this is hard hard hard stuff. Little did I know there are so many laws to memorize. I was terribly frustrated on the chapter a few nights ago that taught me all about surveying in one chapter crammed with information that made no sense to me what so ever. But pushed through it even when I was about to burn the book, I finally passed that chapter test. This is probably the hardest thing career wise that I have decided to tackle, and lets just say it has been a good 20 years since I have had to study for anything. I can't wait to finish this on line and be in class for 2 weeks to go over it all again with a teacher!! After that I will pass his class, then 2 state exams.  Every day I open my book it is a new adventure and a pretty huge challenge and commitment!! 

  I love this quote: It is so true!! If you are going to do something. Just do it!

God I Trust You

God I trust you. I don't know , maybe this is a test.  Maybe you're stretching me further than I would like to be stretched, but I do know that YOU love ME.  And at the right time in the right place, my breakthrough will come.  And no person on earth and no devil in hell can keep me from getting it because God is my source!!!

Be the best version of yourself that you can!

Many challenges & hard losses came upon us in 2014. I have to admit I am not sad to say goodbye to it. In fact "Good Riddens 2014".  For 2015 My prayers are for good health for our family!! I am not someone that makes stupid new years resolutions. I am just a woman that says, "This year I want to be the best version of myself that I can be, better in all aspects of life and I am seeking positive things in my life to help me reach what I really want to become inside of myself. I truly believe surrounding yourself with positive people is a huge huge thing that we all need to pay attention to.  I am praying for God to send more of these people into my life.   A friend said this, "your personal success is going to look a lot like the average success of your 5 closest friends.  when you look at your call log or text history, who do you see yourself communicating most with outside of your family?  If we want above average success in life, we will need to seek out those who have already done what you want to do and duplicate what they are doing.  Surround Yourself with those on the SAME mission as you".

My friend was really talking about careers, but i really believe that to be true in all aspects of life!! How are you becoming a better woman, or better version of yourself? If you surround yourself with friends that are negative all the time, you will find yourself looking at things negatively as well. For married couples, I think it is very important to surround yourself with couples that are in good marriages. Men need good men to turn to and look up to as mentors to help their own marriages, just as much as I feel woman need that too. There is a lot said about being around couples that are happy, and creative in their marriages. It does rub off on you in a positive way and I believe we could all use a dose of positive people.  So in all areas of my life I pray God to help me be the best that I can be, that he will surround me with the positive people in my life to help me reach my fullest potential that I can.
