Good Mornin’ Y’all!!! Happy November everyone!!!
I LOVE this time of year! Any of you that know me know that this is ABSOLUTELY my favorite time of year… SO I googled some photos & LOOK what I found…
So- I’ve participated in the NaBloPoMo daily prompts before & I thought I would join in again for the month of November with http://www.blogher.com. I wanted to let everyone know that I may follow the guided prompts on some days & then some days I may not. This NaBloPoMo suggestions are that we bloggers commit to write a post every day, of course, as a Momma, I try not to write on Saturday & Sunday even when I commit to NaBloPoMo due to the fact that this is family time & hopefully the blogisphere understands my commitment to my family.
Onto today’s post, which is about money, specifically $1 million dollars. My readers who know me & my story are aware that in my younger 20’s, I suffered a car accident which caused me to be in a coma for 21 days & suffer a traumatic brain injury or TBI as an acronym. I am fine now, life has been quite an adjustment & there are posts you can read back about & I am currently in the process of documenting a more accurate timeline of everything that happened to me & adjustments that needed to be made in order to live a happy and well ADJUSTED life!
Anyways- prior to my accident, I was a very determined sales person with high goals & big dreams & dollar signs in my eyes. I didn’t care who I stepped on to get there.
I was very materialistic & I thought it didn’t matter who I trampled over, friend, foe, family member, or not, to get ahead but I was going to get wherever I needed to get there, period. It was BAD… when My Hubs & I first began working at the same telecommunications company in 2004 when I was married to my first husband (divorced not long after though).
You see he’s a very skilled voice telecommunications installation engineer, so, all of the telecommunications systems I sold, he would install. Well- If he didn’t install the system to MY expectations, I would show my rearend & he would, in turn, not scream back at me (he is not a screamer) simply explain to me in some ridiculous GEEKED out method (he can go super geek man in a heartbeat) that the phone system COULD NOT work like that & if I would have used my brain & asked him before selling the system to the client & making promises that would never work then maybe I would not look like a “COMPLETE IDIOT!”(we know a phone system is an inanimate object & doesn’t have wings so I should have never promised that in the beginning anyways) Yes- he would talk to me just like that- he despised me in my early 20’s, he rolled his eyes & laughed at me. He would snicker, he was just down right mean… LOL.
My dear sweet Hubs didn’t like me until after my accident, everything I stated in my first sentence, he will tell you is spot on accurate & true. I love him for his honesty & the fact that he NEVER gave up on me… xo, Hubs.
You see before my accident- I was all about me- I was that selfish 20 something kid, but, after my accident, I became WAY more humble, I realized that GOD gave me another chance at life & that I had been BLESSED to be able to watch my baby girl grow up & little did I know that God had a plan for me to be with this man, the Hubs…
So- my car accident has messed up a lot of things in body physically but I can tell you that I have things that I would not have if I still had not had that humbling attitude adjustment that God gave me from the “coma car accident” as my family calls it. (My family calls it that because I am a HORRIBLE driver & I am notorious for wrecking vehicles, just sayin’…LOL)
So- y’all there’s my insight today, about how money isn’t everything & how my view about how money changes attitudes. Today, I could care less about money. Right now, I am hanging out with the family, looking for some part time work possibly, entertaining the idea of going back to school, tell you the truth- I have NO clue what I am going to do, but, I do know that God is speaking directly to me- He’s almost screaming “Amber, it’s almost time for you to do something” now I just have to figure out what God wants me to do… so keep me in your prayers folks…
Until next time, I am going to let y’all rock out to one of my fave songs, Martina McBride & Be Blessed, folks!
