I finally did it! Stepped out on faith and started my own Registered Behavior Technician tutoring service.(supervising service will be added soon)
I passed my applied behavior analysis (aba)board certification on Wednesday and haven’t come back down to earth just yet. I have been praying and working my butt off and it’s all happening. My advice to everyone is to be prepared for what you pray for.
Yes, you have to move your feet and work…but it will come.
Stay motivated and focused. The same day I passed, I secured three paid clients. It was like they were waiting for me to pass the exam.
Im so excited. This post may be a bit rambly….but it’s because I’m excited. But I had to share my great news with my bloomers.
Thanks for all the support and continue to keep BLOOMing!
Sometime life throws you a curve. You can stand there and look at it, cry and strike out, or you can swing and hope you knock it out the park.
Life threw me a curve ball called Covid 19. Yes…I tested positive and was quarantined alone with a high fever, sever body pain and difficult breathing. For the first two days…I felt so miserable I simply laid there and waited for death. Yes….I felt that bad. On the third day, literally three days after my symptoms began, I gave up on death taking me and pulled myself up out of the bed and slowly forced myself to walk around my bedroom. I opened the curtains and even turned on the TV. I decided to swing at the curve ball. Instead of looking at the boxes and bottles of meds on the bedside table, I decided to take them. I sat, for as long as I could, up in a chair and faced the window to get a little sun. I texted a close friend, only to find out that her husband was going threw the same thing, symptoms and all. We chatted for a bit and that very day I felt better. The next two days were horrible, as far as pain and breathing, but I continued to take a few steps around my bedroom, take the meds and sit in the sun.
Finally on day 10, I began to feel an ease in the pain and was taking a few deep breaths without struggling. Slowly I began to improve…I hit the curve ball on strike two.
This past Wednesday I was back at work, on Thursday I went to work out and by Friday I was back cheering for my son.
The Covid virus is a horrible THING. So many families have lost love ones to this ugly virus. I was blessed to recover from it and so was my friend’s husband. I beg everyone who reads this to do your part to stop the speed of this deadly virus. Wear a face mask, wash your hands often and please practice social distancing.
To use another baseball analogy…lets knock this virus OUTTA HERE!
No matter what is going on in your life today, remember, it is only preparation. People come and go; situations rise and fall; it’s all preparation for better things. You must stretch, reach, grow into your goodness. Without the preparation we receive through adversity, disappointment, confusion, or pain, we could not appreciate the goodness when it arrives.
I wanted to take the time out to tell you about two of my latest discoveries…two things I found to make my life alot easier. The first, is GROCERY STORE DELIVERY! yes…I have discovered this wonderful luxury and added it to my new lifestyle.(simple things make me happy)
Next…is something I hardly ever do. I never endorse a product of any kind but this I absolutely have to…(and NO it’s not a paid endorsement) I love Cascade max dishwasher pacs!
Now you might be used to using grocery store delivery, I don’t know where you live, you can tell me that in the comments… and you may be used to having sparkling clean dishes😊 weather you use what I use or not! Its new to me and it makes my life a little bit better! I almost felt like I moved up a lifestyle grade. I feel like I’m fancy😊
I just want to encourage you to do what makes you feel good. Enjoy this life… love yourself…love someone else… enjoy THIS life. Yes, we are living in a crazy world, we are living in a global pandemic so please remember to wash your hands, use your mask and practice social distancing… but call somebody up and check on them, call somebody up and tell them you love them, call somebody up and tell him you miss him. Go read a good book, order some gourmet cookies, have them delivered and eat every single one of them, mind how you think, mind your thoughts, keep your thoughts positive you’re the only one who hears what’s going on in your head so speak gentle to yourself, talk lovingly to yourself; enjoy your own company and by all means love on yourself; and when you get a chance spoil yourself a little bit!!
Leave me a short note in the comments, like and share! Until next time…# boss lady out!
The first Sunday of the new year…what a perfect day to start anew. I’ve asked the question on other blog post and I will ask again …What are you doing today that helps move you towards the life you want?
Small changes toward the lifestyle goals you want is a perfect example. You don’t need to much a lot of noise to make changes……and yes cheer yourself on. Be proud of yourself for moving forward…no matter how small the step
