January Journey: Day 3

In a moment of inspiration, I went to a Single Mothers Facebook group.

I saw a lady post about how she lost her job in August and how she was looking for a place to stay. I wrote to her and asked if she’d take PayPal so I could send her some funds.

She ended up replying and saying that she doesn’t have a PayPal account.

We talked back and forth via message and she gave me her address. I’ve already set up my bank account to send her a check to cover a month’s rent. She’ll get it in 5-7 business days. :)

 

Giving my sister the money :)

Thank you SO MUCH for everyone who participated in the baby shower sale for my sister.

She was so happy to get all that money, and called it a “huge stress reliever”.

She isn’t an overly emotional person, but you can see how surprised she was on the (not so stellar quality – my apologies on that!) video below:

Since then, her whole demeanor has changed. She went from texting me that “her life is over” to being far more relaxed, happy, and able to breathe.

Her stress levels also impact the unborn baby, so you’ve helped there too.

You’ve also inspired a baby-shower full of people, my family, and now hopefully some people who see this… so your efforts are far reaching.

Thank you again – very, very much. :)

An ode to 2012…

I posted this on Facebook and it got such great response that I thought I’d post it here too.

This time last year, I was in a numb marriage that left both us highly unsatisfied… to a soul-crushing level. But we were good friends, and we didn’t want to hurt one another.

This year, my ex and I are still friends, and now I’m in love with a man that enlivens me, makes me a better person, and makes me feel like the luckiest girl in the world.

This time last year, I was in a business partnership that left me feeling secure, but very creatively blocked and without freedom.

This year, I’m still good friends with my partner, and I’m on my own now… with a team of AMAZING people who leave me feeling so supported, business running better than ever, and floods of messages from people saying I inspire them every day.

This time last year, I was having all kinds of health challenges. I spent about $40k trying to fix them and nothing worked.

This year, I’m seeing the most magnificent doctor in the world. My health issues have all but cleared up.

This time last year, I didn’t know I was going to move several more times in the coming days.

This year, I’m living in an incredible home with incredible people, feeling rooted for the first time in 7 years, while getting my travel fix. :)

This time last year, I didn’t know I was about to have a situation with a good friend that created the lowest night in my life.

This year, we’re better friends than ever, and I’m surrounded by other amazing people that make me feel so loved and supported.

Ya, I’d say 2012 was the best year of my life so far. :) Hard, but oh so worth it. :)
