Walking For the Cure



October 17, 2015, Rydere, a hight school student from Philly said it best:

Whether we walk for the cure, or talk for the cure,

It does not matter as long as we work together to help find the cure.

We may feel like we doing a lot,

but we can do so much more.

We cannot stop, until we find the cure.

Cancer is not just something that makes a woman stress,

It’s a sickness weakening her and attacking her breasts.

Men can get it too, so never think less,

We need to keep fighting, until we put this thing to rest.

This is something we have been battling for quite some time,

We have been our hard earned cash, sometimes every dime.

A good friend lost his Mom to breast cancer,

That’s irreplaceable, a woman of her own standard.

I just want people to be aware, prepared, not scared,

Cancer is something no one should have to bear.

We can change someone’s life, do it because it’s right, not for the hype.

Making a small donation can make someone’s dark pain have a little light,

Also make a victim who is diagnosed, have a little fight.

Cancer is something no one should have to endure,

We need to keep walking, talking, and fighting, together to help find a cure.

I Quit

After 20 years of teaching in the public school system, I quit…well I took an early retirement, so that I can take care of my parents.  So much has changed but it feels so good to be here for them.  After the sleepless nights, the guilt of leaving them with professional strangers, and the needless stress,  an enormous weight has been lifted from my shoulders.

I know jobs these days are hard to come by, but there are times when an opportunity comes, and you have to take it.  I even felt a little guilty for leaving my boss, but I got over it.  Sometime in life you have to just go for it and take that leap of faith.  Yes it may be scarey, yes your cash flow will change, but you have to make a game plan.

I wanted to find a way to earn money doing what I love, while using my photography skills at the same time.  Now I’m selling on Amazon and Ebay, taking great pictures for my products and giving back on both platforms… I love it.

If any of you feel stuck and you have a passion you want persue, I recommend reading the book titled  “Turn Your Passion Into Profit” by Walt F. J. Goodridge.  He gives action steps for turning your passion into an actual business.

Conquer the fear by taking action, make that first step.

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild & precious life?”(Mary Oliver)

This is the year of action, thanks to a great read by Erin Morin McCormick.

Are you ready to take your business to the next level?

What do you need to do to succeed?  People say, to be successful in your business, you need to …write a blog, get on Facebook, start pinning, start posting, start tweeting, update your profile, and so on…but how do you begin?

This book outlines 3 steps to success:

  1. Get clear about what you want and why (Time to take a breath and focus)
  2. Get a plan (What are you going to do to get the job done)
  3. Get going (Take a step and then the next one)

Taking consistent small actions is the best medicine to overcome fear and doubts, and a sure way to make this year the best year of your life.
