So, for some reason, I thought starting a business would be simple. I figured, it couldn’t be but so hard, right? Wrong! It’s super hard. Between juggling mommyville & and goodwifeville, it’s been quite a task. I’m not complaining, but you know it’s always something to cause a bit of stress. I can’t remember which exact preacher said this, but the quote was, “Whenever you get to a new level, there’s always a new devil!” I laughed when I heard that quote because we just found out that we need a new bathroom, and we need it now. Of course, a new bathroom is certainly not in our budget, so the next best thing to do is ask for help. Although we haven’t received much yet, I know God will provide. I decided to do a gofundme to raise money for our new bathroom. I think there are always going to be obstacles to success and the lesson I’m learning now as a new mom is that my old ways of dealing with stress are no longer going to work. I can’t cry all the time, think negative thoughts, close myself off to the world, complain, and expect to get good results.
See, I’m a glass half empty kind of gal, and it’s not on purpose. Really! I’ve always been this way even as a child. But it’s never too late to change no matter how long you’ve been doing something. So, I have made a consciouse decision to always look at what I DO have instead of what I DON’T. Each of us has something that we need to work on, and though for me, I still feel like, “Woe is me! It’s always something!,” I know that it’s all going to work out, somehow.
If you’d like to donate towards helping us get a new bathroom, please click the link below. Every bit counts. We are planning to put up a tribute in the bathroom to say thanks to all who have donated once the bathroom is complete.
Just know, life is always full of surprises, and it’s okay to ask for help! 😊
