My dream is to never have to worry about another bill in my life! Hence the word "worry" I mean it is so disheartening to get a check and have to spend the majority of it on living expenses. And just when you think you have taken care of every bill here comes another one. It's the fear of constantly wondering what scary bill is going to peek its head around the corner next smh sacrificing dream vacations, new clothes, random nights out on the town etc. Why? Responsibilities, that's why. I just want to be rich. In my first attempt to become rich I realized I was low on time, most of my day was spent working and maintaining the life I currently had. That usually consist of completing chores around the house, food shopping, cooking, organizing, and throw in a little bit of self care (a shower) and BOOM it's time to go to bed. It was then that I realized I needed more than money, I need a plan. I needed a proven method that I could follow to live the life I have always dreamed of. That would include a change of the mind, specifically my thinking patterns. I have always been accustomed to being broke and have adapted to the lifestyle pattern of worrying, hesitant to live my life to the fullest extent without the dreadful thought of bills. I had to ask myself a series of questions like What makes me happy? What is your passion? Do you place yourself as a priority or do you place yourself last? I found out I wasn't living happy, passionate, or important, and that was a major problem. Interior decorating made me happy, and I'm most passionate when I am helping others so I headed to the store for some inexpensive DIY's. I love flowers, decorative vases, pillows, faux throw blankets, wall art, candles, etc. I set my sights on a couple of items from stores like Ross, Michaels, and The Dollar Tree ( I told you inexpensive) I purchased them and I made it a priority to focus on my happiness. I sat in the middle of the floor putting together my flower vase and picture frames as well as placing four dollar candles around the house. I was in my happy place! I also thought of a way I can incorporate my love for helping people so I created this blog to document this experience to let others know they can do it too. As I focused on things that enriched my heart the pressures of becoming rich and the fear of bills began to fade away. When I created these DIY's I began to get request from friends and family for decorative ideas and even the opportunity to be compensated for my skillset, I also discovered I can get paid for blogging! My gifts made room for me! By just placing myself first, doing what makes me happy, and living out my passion I added multiple streams of income from things I would have done for free. Sometimes we can get so lost in the thick of life we forget that the best pleasures are the simple things, enrich your life with currency from the heart and you'll never go broke.
