I’m pretty unsatisfied with the way some things are going in my life right now. So what does one do about that?
They CHANGE IT!!!
Well that’s exactly where I’m at right now.
I’m fed up with so much and I have control over so little.
So what about my life can I change right now? Or can I take steps to change?
So many things actually.
You can’t complain about your life and not know what you want. You gotta know what you’re willing to fight for. What you’re willing to sacrifice for. I know exactly what I want. I’ll admit it took some time to come to that.
So what do I want?
- to move into a 3 bedroom 2.5 bath home
- a new position
- dslr camera
- good credit
- happy weight
- provide for my family
- blog growth
- more money
That’s just to name a few. If I were to open all of that up to you this blog post would be so freaking long. I could go into specifics but I just wanted to give a good overall view.
For each of these things I have to ask myself? What are you going to do to achieve this?
I would love for my answer to all of the above is to win the lottery. I believe I will but realistically, I gotta do my part to achieve what I want.
Take a look at how I break this down in my mind okay…
More than anything right now, I want to move. Again, I could be writing forever telling you all the reasons why I no longer want to live where I live. I don’t care if it’s by renting or by somehow being able to buy…we need more space as a family. I want to live closer to my job. So what do I have to do to make this happen? Well either way I need to work on my credit. Could I qualify for a mortgage? I don’t currently have an active credit card, perhaps I should start there….get a card, pay on time, in 6 months I could see maybe 50-100 points increase in my score. Combine that with lowering costs on some of the things I can control like cable and cellphone bill…put the difference to savings. A down payment doesn’t come out nowhere. Not to mention staying on top of couponing like I should means more money to spend on bills and/or savings.
I’m working on my vibrations with the Law of Attraction and I was reading that it’s not so much about the tangible things that you want as much as it is the actual feelings they evoke. Now, don’t get me wrong, I want my house, but if I look at it from a feelings aspect…what are the feelings that having a larger home would create for me? Happiness, Security, Pride, Peace and Joy. I believe that by rising to feel these feelings I will attract the home I want.
I’m working on the blueprints in my own notebook of the life I want.
I’m kind of testing the LOA for myself.
Like I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I believe in the LOA. When I first watched The Secret when it debuted, it made sense to me. I used it to get parking spots at Walmart! Because I only got the light dusting of the LOA via The Secret, I didn’t realize that I would give up after things falling apart in my life. I’m now learning how to overcome those things. So I decided a few nights ago that I’m sick and tired of living my life like this. Life is too short and too precious to go about it so unhappy and so unfulfilled. I know what I want so why the hell am I not going after it??? That made me decide to write down what I want and make steps to get it. Small steps, big steps, some I may not know the steps, but they will be shown to me.
Today I took a step.
Well, let me go back a weekend first…
Last weekend was Mother’s Day weekend. On Saturday Brianna and I went to Parade of Homes. If you don’t have one in your area, it’s where the local homebuilders association presents homes that are on the market for the public to view. I love it because it’s open to the public and I don’t feel like an idiot going into an open house lying to a realtor about being in the market. I love going to see the homes both in my realistic price range and some just because I like to see different homes. Anyway, I fell in love with a home.
When I say fell in love, I mean fell in LOVE! As in I haven’t stopped thinking about this house since I saw it. It’s $285,000. Not even in my imaginary price range. About that lottery…
|because I know you want to see my dream|
I would be happy with a house I can realistically afford or with the beautiful Craftsman style home that the lottery would allow me to afford. Oh how I love the Craftsman style. It truly is my favorite home style. Especially in this neighborhood, because all of the house are complimenting in style, not cookie-cutter.
Today I took the step towards rebuilding my financial core. I have a lot of rebuilding to do. In so many aspects of my life, but definitely with my finances. I took the step in applying for a credit card. First, I signed up for credit karma. Since it’s free. I saw in reviewing my info, that my last credit card company which my card is closed with, still showed active on my report. The wheels began to turn in my head and I said to myself, what if you apply with that company, at least you have a history with them. So I applied.
I felt the good feelings that getting approved would give me: happiness, security, goody goody feelings. Normally I would expect to see the message about receiving a letter in 7 – 10 business days. I know what that means. Instead I was delighted with seeing the approved status!!! On top of that, a higher credit limit than I expected!!! I can definitely make that work! I can double the limit in 6 months, improve my credit score, and give myself some peace of mind at the same time!
So today I took a step. Tomorrow I will take another step. With each day I will take more and more steps.
Many of the steps I won’t really post up here, some things are more personal than others. But I am putting the Law of Attraction to work and that I will definitely be sharing. I’m excited for the ride!
