Life happens when your busy doing something else…
My name is Diane and I cant say that my story is a bad as many of the ones I have read here today. I am a nurse and a teacher and I try to always stay positive. I have had moments in my life where I almost forgot to be grateful, but my positivism has always risen to the occasion. I’m simply here hoping to catch a break. To breathe again and to gain a much needed step up from the organized chaos that seems to peek it’s head into my life. Life throws curve-balls and ya just cant see them coming, although you should always be prepared to seek the solutions instead of dwelling on the problem itself. I almost feel silly posting a wish for a stranger to throw generosity my way, but something is compelling me to do so. My story is an interesting one, life has never been boring in the least. I am amazed at the things I have survived and the hurdles I have jumped. I have been divorced twice, both relationships ended due to very different reasons. I have seen alcoholism first hand and the affects it can have on a family. I have survived and conquered the destruction of everything I owned in an F-4 tornado back in 2002. I have made it through nursing school, single with 2 kids and 2 jobs. I am resilient to say the least. I keep my optimism close to my heart and laugh often. Currently I am helping my son get back on his feet after his ex chose to have a relationship with a heroin dealer. Drugs have such a horrific fall-out not only on yourself if you choose to use them but to those you love. He was forced to move immediately for his sons (my grandson) safety. I am happy to report he has regained employment and is slowly getting back on his feet, My household however has been stretched to capacity and so has my checking account. He is not the only reason. My student loans have kicked in for my teaching degree and some unexpected house repairs have begun the spiral of chaos that is my current financial woe. I have never been at a place in my life for savings. It’s paycheck to paycheck and honestly I usually make it work. It has always seemed financial stability has been just on the other side of my reach. I work hard at my job and I give back often. I always tell my kids karma is a thing and someday it could be them in need. I have helped organize food drives, rung bells for he Salvation Army, cleaned up after natural disasters and even given financially to others in need. I will continue to bank those karma points as it is an important part of my life. My wish is to merely catch up on the electric bill and to get a few bills caught back up to due instead of the pay now status a few are in. I have food in the fridge and a full house of laughter. I am happy even amidst the chaos and I know I can figure it out somehow. It may mean a lowered credit score or a few more “your in default” bills in the mail, but I will prevail. Thank you for taking the time to read my wish. I am trying to change my stars and cash in some of my karma points.
If anyone out there is at that abundance stage in their lives I congratulate you and wish you continued prosperity. Happy Holidays from my house to yours!
