    Your Reason For Everything: Your Why

    I’ve tried my hand at several work from home opportunities. Some have panned out. Some I’ve thrown out. But I’ll never stop trying. Which is good. I’m always learning. In my three plus years of attempting to earn an income from said house, I’ve been a part of four MLMs (think direct sales). I’ve done Origami Owl. O2. Jewelry. And we’re still going strong.

    Importance of Gratitude

    November in the United States has one of the more celebrated holidays of any other time of the year and made all the more important because it’s the perfect time to highlight the importance of gratitude. An attitude of gratitude can be the difference between happiness and bitterness. Between contentedness and coveting this time of year. Giving Thanks Right after Halloween, and right before Christmas, lands THANKSgiving. The perfect time… to give thanks. A couple of years back, my family started a tradition for my older children. Towards Thanksgiving,  we write down what we’re most thankful for on pieces of construction paper and then clip each “leaf” in a clip…
