3 reasons I’m feeling incredibly blessed today



It’s no secret that my life is hard. It just is. It’s no secret that I struggle at times. I just do. It’s no secret that if it weren’t for bad luck sometimes, we wouldnt have any luck at all. It’s how I feel.

Having said that, there are times where I feel extremely lucky or even blessed and today is one of those times.

There are currently three reasons why I’m feeling so blessed right now..and here they are.

Work

Money’s really tight since some recent changes to my income occurred. When I mean tight, I mean I can have less than $10 to my name at times. I’m not proud of that but it is what it is and I know I’m doing the best I can. I have to cling to that.



I’ve been working with some new advertising and pr companies lately, trying to broker some advertising deals that can help replace the income I’ve lost.

So far, I’ve inked deals with about half a dozen new clients already but I haven’t gotten any work from them yet.

Last night, I unexpectedly picked up a new client. It was really late and often times there are major time zones differences. Communication can be delayed because we’re on opposite schedules.



This client was particularly quick to respond and I ended up with two jobs last night. I was able to knock them out quickly and I was paid immediately. I also received a job from another client last night and another one this morning.

This came at a time when we desperately needed it. I was able to get school supplies and put gas in the car.

That’s a huge relief and an absolute blessing.

That’s fantastic that you got paid so quickly. What are the jobs? I feel like there are probably a lot of people who follow your blog who could benefit from being able to do the same thing to earn some extra cash and in such a short period of time. Follow up question- I know working full time outside the house is difficult and part of that reason was because any significant bump in income would lower your benefits, but now that Gavin is an adult does that change anything? His benefits are now independent so you should be able… Read more »
