I have been quiet on here, due to the guy I have been dating… his ex girlfriend had stalked me on here.
I feel I am safe to start blogging again.

I feel I am safe to start blogging again.
Yes, the title of this blog post is correct!
I feel the need to rearrange my blog here, and try something a little bit different to redirect myself in a whole new mindset of what I am trying to do for my life and not for others. Should be simple! Take care of you, focus on you, and get to the top of that mountain that you deserve to be on, the rest will soon follow.
I have been struggling with money the past 5 years and it has taken a tole on me for the worst. I do not get out like I used to. I do not get to go on vacations because it seems like money has to be involved on going on any vacation. I do not get to take care of my dog like I need to. It has all been rough, and I refuse to keep living life the way I am living!
THIS IS JUST NOT RIGHT FOR ANY HUMAN TO SUFFER!
So, what I have to do, or what I had to do was step back from things and focus on what I really needed to do be doing.
That is why I have not really blogged in so long here.
For my readers, I want to apologize for this.
I am going to try the hang of this blogging for another round and see how I do.
Everyone looks for the idea(s) of making money, right? I do it everyday. I know how it feels. I however have a full time job yet, but I still want to make some extra money on the side. No matter what it is, I want the that extra side hustle. (Especially on theses rainy days where I do not work at all)
I went ahead and got right into make money ideas and configure out how people actually really “make money from home” and some of these ways I am still testing out the waters myself on these ideas and once I see success, I will most certainly share all the ideas with you as time goes on.
When I first heard of the idea of working from home, and friend of mine actually does. The idea of working from home to me now for the past five years is still a dream of mine. Looking for the right way to work from home however seems like it has been a struggle for me because, there are so many scams out there!
There are real ways to work making money from home. Truth is, when starting out, it will be small amounts and you will be doing a few side hustles to really make that “one income” compared to having a full time job when starting out.
There are many ways to start out in this adventure, but doing research is a big part on anyone before jumping in the pool of entrepreneurs and work at home mom and dads.
That is a way to learn anything in this life is research and finding out for yourself if that idea is worth the time to put in or not. I am stilling learning this curve balls as I go with finding ways to make extra money. It is the biggest struggle I have ever been through to have this journey.
This journey of wanting to work from home and stay at home more and something I want, but I still want an income to provide for myself and for a future family, (if the day ever comes).
With that set aside, even if you are college student most of these ideas will work for you as well to make a little extra through college, even as young as high school students will be able to do some of these money making ideas.
Let’s all face it. MONEY is this annoying thing that makes the world go round, round, round, and yes round. We all need it.
So in my next blog posts to come I will dig into some awesome money making ideas for all of you to check out!
I guess it comes with how things have been. Looking into a future that you know yourself will get better, right? Things need to change and you know it. Whether it is good or bad, you know that whatever changes you make in life, they will lead you to the opportunities you are longing for in life. This life is based on hard work. That is the cold hard truth. I have met along the way, people who try to scum off others and it is upsetting to me to keep watching.
It is unfortunate that I live in an area that most do not want to work for a living. Instead, they sponge of others or sponge off the government for their lazy life. Pathetic, I know. I would give anything for things to change around here.
I want to become more than what I am right now. I have more of a purpose in life and I do not want it going to waste.
I have not blogged in a few months. It hurt me to not be able to come on here to do what I know I should be doing.
Growing an audience to get them on board with me in the ideas of changing this world around.
Why did I stop?
The answer, I will not expose.
But, in order to have this life I am dreaming of come true, I REFUSE to keep hiding on the things that are possible for succeeding in life. I will pursue bigger and better joy in this life if I can just get the courage to do what I love to do and not let others ruin things.
I am ready to make a lot of changes, especially to this blog, and keep going to have the life I am dreaming of, because in the end, that hard work will pay off.
I have sat, researched, and kept doing what I needed to do to understand how blogging ACTUALLY works.
THERE IS A TRICK TO BLOGGING!
There is a trick to everything in this life if you do your research the right way.
To my readers out there,
I am going to be making quite a few changes to my blog here and hope you are ready for the power of what will come. I am hoping it can bring me success finally.
I am ready to take this blogging world back on!
I do not know how any of you deal and cope with what life throws at you.
For me, I have to express through writing in my blog or channel feelings through songwriting or drawing.
I’ve learned that social media is NEVER the place to air your problems. This actually can cause more problems when you make such statements on your status.
Having to deal with a difficult situation that you are having to face can bring on many different emotions for one self.
It can change your eating habits
And many more emotions.
Life is never easy, and we all learn something about ourselves that we may have never knew before.
We are all born with some type of purpose in life.
But finding that purpose can take each and everyone of us a different time frame and path to find.
There are so many steps, ideas, ways that you can take to deal with any challenging event you go through in life.
Like many ways to cope and deal with anything, another way I tend to strive for is getting exercise in.
Eating well and exercising helps me to deal with any problems that may come my way.
I have been making this a challenge myself the past three weeks to start eating healthier and getting out in the fresh air.
It helps me to relieve everything that has been building up throughout the years.
CHECK THIS OUT
Believe this or not, did you know, that the people you surround yourself with can totally make you the person who you are, or should be?
If you surround yourself with negativity, you will have a negative life.
Surround yourself where people judge every move you make or everything you do, you will never succeed the, way you want.
All I wanted to do, was blog.
And I feel like I’m letting readers down.
But things have happened, that have made me take a break from blogging.
In due time, I will be blogging again.
How do you know when the right moment is to take a break from anything?
How do you become aware of everything you’ve been through needs to slow down?
What path do you take to make an adjustment in your life?
Where do you turn to when you feel you have no one?
I took a break from blogging this weekend to concentrate on getting my house done.
A lot of work I had been putting into it, and it seems so hard now to just walk away from it just yet.
Something is pulling me back into the life of the house after fresh paint on the walls.
How can I walk away from this house I have worked so hard on in the past eight years now?
Where me and my furbabies have been in together. Where my golden retriever was since he was nine weeks old.
It’s simple really. I needed a break from being in that house after seven years of bad memories, it is amazing what paint does to an old house.
It can be a safe place for my boyfriend and family if they ever needed.
When I first moved in, the carpet was John Deere green(still is). The kitchen had dull brown cabinets, old kitchen turn dial clock stove.
The counter top was an almost 80’s style design. The floor was a 70’s style. The drop ceiling tiles were yellow and gross.
The whole house needed fixed up to be ready to sell.
But, after working on this house so long, it’s now hard to even sell it.
Learning my way through trying to save my money, I know I can do this on my own yet.
I felt like I was going too lose my house lately, that I needed to sell it before it was taken.
Bills were getting backed up. I was getting so scared. I literally sold everything I had.
I have no furniture now.
Maybe I need to break from the house to fix it, so I can start fresh. So I can become a better person.
I fell off my track completely.
And here is why
When you are surrounded by stay-at-home house wives/mothers, you feel like you are in competition when you are a single woman going into her earlier 30’s.
Let me tell you what it feels like to be a single lady, who’s never been married, who works in construction, and her only kids she will ever have in her life, are her furbabies.
It’s hard, you do not have many girl friends. You do not seem too click with anyone. It’s rough.
So, my life had completely flashed before my eyes.
I want to settle down with someone. I want a different place to live. I want what I want.
Fixing this house alone, with my parents help at least, has taught me this.
Women are able to take care of themselves. Now, this is a message I send to every woman.
Women- you are stronger than men. You can survive on your own without.
My post says, How to Take a break.
I took a break from living in my house to wanting to fix it up and sell it, so I can start to save more money. Well, as I started to save money the past almost three months, I notice now, I may not need to sell my house.
I feel safe there.
I feel safe with the way I am able to save money my way.
No, not that David Ramsey way.
I am going to do this MY WAY.
Because we all have a different life style the way we all live, right?
I’m not going to keep living life the way most do. My life is different. I need a break from other’s lifestyles and beliefs anymore.
I need to find piece, and seek out what I enjoy so I can have my life I dream of.
My other half said to me this weekend, I am stronger than that.
He is right, I am a strong woman to endure anything in life. He has seen it since the day we started dated.
Taking a break from things is usually an ok event to take on. It shows you who you really are as a person.
Even though at times it can be very stressful, and there are always tests to go through. In the end, it’s all worth it.
Even taking a break from blogging is ok at times to regain your thoughts to bring something new to the table for your audience.
I will continue to blog. I will not let anything stop me from this.
I learn nothing is going to stop me from having a great life.
It will be a great life. 😊😄
I hope to bring some new ideas to all who want to save money or make money.
So be on the lookout for my blogs this week!
If you are anything like me, you might be searching for ways to improve you.
Maybe it is a skill you are wanting to brush on?
Do you want to learn a new skill?
Maybe you want to become a better person?
Whatever it is that you are looking into, it always begins somewhere.
SAVVY WAYS TO IMPROVE YOU
I almost though of taking a break from my blog here to actually brush up on my skills of blogging.
My number one go to source of learning the world of blogging is…..
Can I get a drum roll…
I am a HUGE Pinterest person anymore. I have set Facebook aside, not much one for Instagram lately, however Twitter is my second go to for a lot to grow my blog.
The reason why I considered on not blogging maybe for a week, was to actually reteach myself the basics blogging.
We all can take this course at times in our life, right?
I have learned that many come to start a blog just to make money.
Trust me, I would love this too.
But some days it may require you to take a step back into the
Fundamentals of blogging.
Blogging, is a way to write down what you know and guide others who are searching for a specific topic they are searching for.
Thinking about starting a Blog?
Think of your niche BEFORE you begin a blog.
I suggest before you start a blog, definitely grab paper and pen and write down what you know, so you have a clear mind of the topic you’d like to cover.
If you start a blog to just make money – you will fail miserably.
There is a lot to learn and research on blogging. I still do this while I continue to blog myself. Sometimes you have to brush up on things you think you know, but learn something new while you continue to learn.
Another thing I have been reading on.
People love those long, broken up blogs.
You know the kind. Those long blog posts, that have a paragraph of maybe three sentences, and it is drug out.
Yeah, people like to skim, they read, but they skim. So breaking up your post the way I am trying to do, because I myself that when I read other blogs, I like them to be easy to read through.
Oh, I know I have a long long way to go with my blog.
I will let you know this.
It does not happen over night to grow your blog. It does take A LOT time, effort, patience, and getting the right traffic.
I have found recently that you can create call-to-action buttons to generate on your blog, and this is another task that I plan to corporate in my blogs for future reference.
Always remember this.
It is ok to take a break from blogging to readjust your skills, to brush up on your writing, and to fix your niche.
There is no wrong in making this move.
I may have to at times to change things up a bit to keep my readers intrigued and excited.
Don’t ever get discouraged.
Just keep going until you see results. For many bloggers, it has taken them more than two years to see change in their blogs.
So, keep going. There is light.
Did you know, that the world we live in today is full of technology that you can find a way to make a little extra cash these days?
Crazy, I know, right? When I first found out about this, I was blown away I had to try it for myself.
I’ve been researching the past four years to bring in a few extra dollars on the side.
Well, in this blog post, I am going to share with you all how you can start to search for legitimate ways to make money.
Like I had made mentioned above, I have been searching for many ways to make extra money on the side. Through different search sites and social media, it’s been an up hill battle finding the legit wats to make a little moola.
Let’s face it, we all want a little extra money at times. But, what are wats to search and weed out the best possible choices.
Where do you start to search?
HOW TO FIND WAYS TO MAKE EXTRA MONEY
If your like me, always wanting to get ahead in life, pay off debt, and want to have a secure fund where you have money always set aside for any occasion, then get ready for some awesome information.
I enjoy researching.
For what it seems like forever for me, I have been looking for legit ways to make a little extra side income. For any idea I have found came intensive, dig deep research.
Check out Swagbucks! I use it to get free gift cards! Click my link to join: https://www.swagbucks.com/?cmd=sb-register&rb=18506109&cmp=197&cxid=2001-app
Have you ever went on search engines to look up something? Like ideas for dinner, home decor, books, and more? Well if you dig through these search engines deeper, and are tempted to make a little side income, then you can certainly my do so!
WHAT SEARCH ENGINES WOULD I RECOMMEND?
There are many search engines out there to seek out a way to make extra income.
These are the search engines that I have been using now for that last almost 4 years.
Now, there is a reason for why I have these ideas and in the order I did.
Pinterest is one search engine I use the most to find my ways to make extra cash. I ha e recently learned that pins have a tendacy to be on for three months at a time, and pins get REPINNED! If you take notice to those pins that are nicely displayed, bright colors, and the fonts are cool, they are very eye catchy!
So I would highly recommend Pinterest to do a lot of your research!
YouTube is my second on the list. I don’t know about you, but I love to see visual of anyone with a way to make extra cash. It definitely can set your mind at ease when actually seeing someone making money.
Google is another search tool I like to use to find out more about making extra cash. If I run into the Direct Sales companies through the Internet, I tend to search them through Google to find out more about that specific company. Checking their ratings through BBB (Better Business Beurao).
Indeed can have some awesomne jobs if you ever needed a part time legit job along your full time job. Lately I have been using Indeed as well to search for some ways on there to make a few extra bucks.
Craigslist is definitely that site that has been around for a while. You can search for a wide range of just about anything on there, however:
I would use extreme caution when using this site!
Instagram I usually will be scrolling through mine and may seem to find at times something to make extra money. Sometimes it is worth a shot to go through.
Last but not least!
Facebook, and I no longer use, but if you search for groups that are local in the area you live in, Facebook has jobs posted in your area so you can find something to make a few extra bucks.
If you are ready to start searching, I hope that these ideas help you to get started.
It is real simple.
How to Get Yourself out of Debt in today’s World
I am living proof that anyone can do this move in their life to help them get all of their debt gone, and to actually save.
I have done this once before, and living through it again. There are simple ways you can do this to help gain your life back.
But, you have to be willing to take action for you story, and for the why part.
I seem to ask myself these three questions.
Why did I get myself into this?
How can I get myself out of this?
When am I going to see the light?
The first question to take a look at is,
WHY DID I GET MYSELF INTO THIS?
It certainly wasn’t the ex I was dating or my friend to get me into this situation. It wasn’t my neighbor or my job.
It was simply ME.
I was the one who screwed up my finances, by doing the most stupidest move ever!
I can tell you a little story of my mess up of getting into debt, and can assure you I will not be letting this happen again.
It goes back to the year of 2015. I had everything going for me. I was working in a warehouse, I started working for them in 2013 of October. I was with them until about June, of 2015.
I wonder what life would be like today….
However, no regrets. Because even though I still struggle today, my life is the best it can be.
Back on track here!
So, I was at this warehouse job for almost shy of two years then. Things were getting rocky and uneasy like any warehouse job. So, I decided to shift a career change.
Now as most of you know by now, I am working in construction today.
I absolutely love my job today.
Anyway, when I left that warehouse job in 2015 in the month of June, I went to go work for a construction company then (totally different company from the one I’m at today).
I went for my field test and everything, and they hired me. They wanted me to start within a week, and right then and there gave my notice to that warehouse job.
That warehouse was upset I was leaving.
I felt so happy to be getting into the construction world, as of course, I was always fascinated in it because of my dad working in the industry.
Now up until then, I always had been good about saving money. Never thought of losing, always gaining. So, here is a little inside about construction.
Depending on what construction you are in, weather can play a factor if you get to make money or not during the weeks.
It is a struggle when you go one week without working because it rained. That me telling you this, is my advice to any of you whoever consider on working in this industry;
Have a side job lined up
Simply save your money.
Most guys I know in the construction industry have some type of second income coning in. Although some do have to take the unemployment route, and this is ok. But, it is only half your normal pay.
Trust me, I know how this route is, that us why I’m giving tips and advice and reassurance in each blog I post.

START SAVING MONEY PEOPLE. ANYWAY YOU CAN.
If I would’ve learned and understood a lot more, I still wouldn’t be struggling today. That is why from my mistakes and past events I went through, I want to help anyone out there fix their money problems too.
Let’s understand more of the why here.
I will fast forward the next few months of me working at the construction company. It was about November 2016, I had made the decision I was going to get into the Army, Part time and was going to start a new job thst would be better flexible for the weekends for me.
I was studying for my test in between working and sleeping, and trying to spend time with my dog. Little did I know the next.
I was losing a lot of money at this point. I had $4,000.00 saved, and by the end of the year that year. I was under $1,000.00. My truck was giving me problems. The fuel running, and me beingv so stupid spending money on chew and vape supplies and monster energy drinks…
Then to put in the equation- I met a guy in this time frame only to find out he was a sex offender and used me for 2 months.
That’s when I knew I was in debt!
So much hit me all at once between November 2015 – March 2016.
My truck had finally broke- this guy literally promised me a fake life of nothing. Bought a new truck that I knew I couldn’t afford, and I had no job because this guy promised me a life of “luxury” when he had nothing.
HOW CAN I GET MYSELF OUT OF THIS?
Two months of hell with this guy. I screwed up my Army opportunity, at this point. I was not allowed to think for myself. He used all of my money. I had to thiknk fast snd quick from January to March how I was going to get out of this hell hole.
It took baby steps, but I eventually left him.
I did everything to get back my life. When March 1st, 2015 rolled around, I was finally away from the guy. I applied to several places within a weeks time and picked up a job.
I went for several walks collecting cans. Worked part time at another job. Moved all of my payments that had fell behind the last 5 months to the end of the loans.
It was tiring. But I managed.

WHEN WILL I SEE THE LIGHT?
I am going to be straight up when I say this.
Everyone has a different situation they go through. I’ve been in debt since 2015, and it is extremely rough to get everything back under control.
But. It is possible.
In order to have a better life, you have to put all the work into it.
I have learned the hard ways throughout the years.
You want to get out of debt, you have to think smarter about your money in any situation you are in.
I know from experience, everyone will go through different events in their life. To get yourself out of debt it starts with you.
One step is to see exactly where your money is going. Once you have figured that part, the next step is simple.
Applying your money to your bills.
Start to budget yourself on the items you can afford and are a necessity.
I know how frustrating this subject is! Trust me, I have picked up a few part time jobs myself to get out of debt now completely. It is a hardship that we all go through one time in our life.
Have faith, and things will start to change.
