Happy Birthday to Me

Birthdays are a funny thing you are suppose to get wiser as you get older and I hope this is true. I learned not to sweat the small stuff let go and let GOD. My co-worker arranged a surprise birthday celebrate for me, and the number of people that came out (on such a cold night) to show me love was moving. That night I promised myself that I would appreciate what and who I have in my life and let God handle the rest. Truth of the year: You can't turn a sows ear into a silk purse

Let Your Relationships Refine Not Define

Don’t allow your unsuccessful relationships to define who you are, rather use them to refine you into the person you want to be. Cliff Young

How To Survive the Recession

Here are a few tips to survive the recession: Go through your closets, drawers etc collect all the have empty bottles of shampoo, lotion and perfume and resolve not to buy new ones until those bottles are empty When cooking dinner add a little more rice or noodles to the pot and pack up the leftovers for lunch for the week ( a possible savings of $25.00) Purchase a jar of instant coffee/tea/hot chocolate, creamer, sugar/sweetener and a bag of frozen bagels and bring your breakfast to work in the morning ( a possible savings of $6.25) Collect all that loose change in your purses and the junk drawer wrap those bad boys up and walk them to the bank (I had $115.000 worth of loose changes) Calculate how much money you will need per week and only visit the ATM once until your next check (**Only use your banks ATM this will eliminate banking fees and make you more aware of your spending habits)
