Ulog: Keep Your Head Up

in #ulog10 months ago

We are on fall break right now, meaning my kids get a whole week off of school.

It is nice.

We will have Thanksgiving on Thursday, and then back to school again for another three weeks and then the semester is finally over.

I am very proud of my children and how well they are faring in school.

I had an abundance meltdown these past couple of weeks. A HUGE (well, big enough) check was supposed to come in, and it would make it so easy to pay my bills. It didn't come, and I spent the week fretting over "what am I going to do?"

Then steem dropped to 11 cents yesterday which highlighted my fretting.


So close to dolphinhood, yet so far away.

Then I stopped myself, and reminded myself. "This is a marathon, not a sprint." Simple enough advice. Just because I am choosing NOT to invest any money right now, doesn't mean that all is lost. It just means that I have to find the opportunities elsewhere.

Steem at 11 cents is great. And steem at 25 cents will be great. And Steem at $1.00 will be great. I am choosing to spend my time a certain way, I DO have choices, and these are the ones I made.

If I don't like my outcomes, I can change my choices.

The TRUTH is that if I really wanted to, I could buy some STEEM, but my kids are on vacation, and I choose to take them out instead. San Diego Living, means that $100 goes FAST. So fast, you may not even see where they go if you don't pay attention.

Another choice I am making. Being a freelancing SAHM who lives in San Diego.

I could get a job.

I could go back and live with my husband in Alameda and cut out all this "bills" nonsense.

I could Air BNB my condo and spend my upcoming vacations in Mexico (for free).

I *could" do a freelancers form of busking and walk into businesses all day, looking for one that needs a writer.

I could and I can change my choices which will change my current financial circumstances. And I will.

Next week. When my kids are not home for me to cuddle and enjoy and take to the park. One thing I do realize, is that they grow up fast.

How much longer will my teenager want to be home waiting for mama to make pancakes?

How much longer will my three kids fight over who gets to hug mama this morning?

How much longer until they wake and do their Saturday chores, so they could be with their friends instead of me?

No need to ask. I just need to enjoy.

Enjoy your Saturday (Sunday?)

You know I really feel the same way right now with STEEM being so low and being stretched thin cuz of the holiday season.

I had to call out of work this week cuz of strep throat, waited for the antibiotics to work. and then we were so slow my boss called me off my next shift anyways. Living day to day as a server is really tough during this time of the year. I can definitely feel the stress and tension from the coworkers too- a few of them gave their two week notices and they offered me a promotion to become a trainer.

I might have no other option but to take it if I wanna stay and make good money at this place. SO things kinda worked out for the best I guess in that regard. Trainers get better sections and consistent schedules and hours.

So from here on out with the STEEM thing we should ALL be dollar cost averaging at regular intervals just to increase our stake and to support the overall ecosystem. If we all work together we can build up our savings and then be able to get back the initial investment later while keeping the profit to earn more interest on :)

Sorry to hear about your strep throat. You should try being a mom, we NEVER get sick (lol, mom joke, we just don't have time for it).

Good luck with being a trainer, I know it has its downfalls too... but consistency is great to have at any job so that's always good.

I'll be buying again soon enough, and yes, we should all be dollar cost averaging. I see that 11 cent steem didn't stick around for too long, so I think that's a good thing.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are fully well real soon.

Enjoy the little things.....

I like your positive attitude.

Thank you <3

kids stay your kids if they are 10, 20 or 30 don't worry about it every age has its beauty :)

Keep blogging here while the price is low. You get more sp now than in times of higher prices. Also take a look at Linda Bomba videos on YT. She have a lot of ways to make money on her channel.
