What scares you?

 

What are you afraid of? Do you not like spiders, mice or other things that crawl? Do you not like the dark, you need that nightlight on when you sleep? Do noises scare you? How about the boogie man under your bed? Do you have a fear of what your future will look like?

 

I do not like to be in tight quarters, I get Claustrophobic and think I cannot breathe!

 

I heard someone the other day talking about the Astronauts on the International Space Station. They were having problems and had to shut part of it down because of a gas leak! They needed to crowd together in tight quarters until they could get it repaired. This meant they needed to get in a place that they were uncomfortable to be in. They actually had to close the American side and move over to the Russian side. Out of their normal surroundings.

What are you scared of?

I think that would be pretty scary. Here you are in outer space, you have nowhere to go, death all around you, and you need to fix it or else.

 

It’s not like here on earth. Down here problems can be fixed rather easily, or some can be ignored all together. It depends on YOU and what YOU want to change, or the question is “DO you want it fixed”.

 

What are you scared of?

 

Facing your fears and going into the unknown is quite a difficult thing to do, especially on your own. Finding your way and knowing that there is help around the corner can be your first step.

 

When I wanted a change in the way I was living my life, I wasn’t sure what it was. I had a family that I loved, I had a house and a car. Some might think that I was pretty good off. Well, I can tell you it just didn’t feel right.

 

I was working many hours away from the house and the other family members, and when the weekend came it seemed like all I did was clean the house and do the laundry. We got paid just enough to keep what we had, but repairs and updates were not in the budget. Vacations were a whole other story, it was a choice of what to give up in order to go somewhere. Is that really living?

 

How do you spend your day?

 

I said that was enough. I needed to find a solution to fix this problem. It just wasn’t living to me. I felt like the robot, doing the same thing day in and day out. I did these things just to keep doing them again and again. Enough already!

 

So, what did I do? What a lot of other people seem to do! I went searching the web. I wanted to make some extra money online without spending anything to do it. Well I will tell you right now, you get what you pay for. If you do not pay for something how can you expect to get anything in return?

 

By now most people would give up and go back to their routine. Back to the answer of ignoring the problem? Not ME! I needed more, I was far enough in my life that I did not see anything changing. I would be stuck with my horrible carpet in the living room and the crappy windows that you cannot see through anymore.

 

Was I scared? Well, yeah, change is always scary. You do not know what it will like, you do not know if you can do it. There are a lot of unknowns when you start something new.  Be strong! 

 

So are you still wondering? What did I do? I found a place that I could call home. A home away from home. An extended family to share and grow with. A place that I could share and build my life and my families’ life with more than just money and objects. (Mind you we make a lot of money too, see the disclosure on the bottom).

 

I have found a place to expand my goals and learn that I too can have it all, if I put my mind to it. I am on a path to never have to worry about where the money is going to come from again. I know what is needed to do to get it. The freedom to work where and when I want. The choices of “can I have this or this”, will be gone. Then it will be, “do I really need what I see?”

 

find a way
