Live to Work or Work to Live

I recently read a blog about living to work or working to live. I immediately asked myself which one am I doing? It would have to be to living to work. All that I do seems to be centered around work and their needs, not my own and not my family. It seems all so simple to say my mission would be to enjoy life and focus on living but it is not so simple. Often, as an imperfect person I say one thing and do another. I say I want to live but I don’t because each day I die inside. I say I want to be free but the shackles of life’s routines imprison me. I say if I work harder I will have the American dream but each day that dream moves further and further away even though I am working harder and harder. The reality is what  I say and what happens is two different things and I have not yet mastered the art of how to make what I say a reality. Even though, I have read the book titled The Secret which is about the law of attraction. The law of attraction is not working in my favor currently but if it did I would attract opportunity, courage and happiness so that my desires, my words, my thoughts would become a reality. I would work to live and enjoy that simple bliss that is somewhere inside of me and in this life I live.

What are you doing- Living to work or working to live? Share which one and how you are making sure to be where you want to be in your life.

Wishing you a peaceful week filled with joyful surprises and the courage to follow your dreams!


I have fallen behind!

By the title you may think I have fallen behind in a task, work, chores or maybe life but this post is simply about falling behind in something I am addicted to and how I miss it terribly…..couponing. Life has been so busy and I have managed to keep up with work, chores, family and most tasks except for this one. By no means am I an extreme couponer (yet) but I am in love and addicted to coupons, the money it saves me and it allows me to help others.

Sunday’s are my favorite day of course because I receive several newspapers. I prepare my space to sit down and begin my clipping, organizing and planning my shopping trip. I think about standing at a register and watch the total decrease and that drives me to keep the hobby going.

Sadly, it seems that coupons are not as good as they used to be and the newspaper does not have as many as they used to. However, there are still deals to be found and coupons to use.

Coupons have allowed me to bless others, maintain my family and give me an inexpensive hobby. I have to get back to my healthy addiction! Coupons here I come.

Are there any couponers out there?

P.S. Thank you for reading my random outside of ASL post.
