I woke up at 6am. I was having a fun dream and it was a slow easy wake up switching between dream and awake. When I became fully awake I laid listening to the birds. It was like a beautiful orchestra surrounding the RV. I felt so blessed and grateful.
After a while I got up, mostly because I really had to pee. Angel was still asleep. I woke her up and carried her into the house. I used the bathroom. Then I made smoothies. A cantaloupe, strawberry, spinach and fresh OJ one for me. Well first I had to make the OJ, so I juice 64oz. of OJ and used 8oz. of it on the smoothie. Then I made a banana, strawberry, date, coconut water and celery smoothie for Angel. I also made a banana, date, spinach and coconut water smoothie for later and cut up 3 mangos for later. I packed the cooler with our smoothies, mangos and added one small avocado. While I was doing all of that, Angel had gotten herself dressed. Good job Angel!
We packed up the car and headed to work. On the drive I listened to “The Path Made Clear”, by Oprah Winfrey. I was feeling frustrated with the book because my path wasn’t clear and I was feeling like a failure…unlike Oprah who is an amazing success story. I didn’t want to go to work, I didn’t want to clean and organize houses anymore. I want big bucks! I want to manifest $300,000.00 this year. Where the heck is it? Why am I not thriving as a blog writer and health coach? What am I doing wrong? Then I reminded myself that I am a success story, in numerous ways. I am a single mom who has food, a beautiful house, a nice car, healthy children, all my bills are paid and so much more. My work is service and helps people in many ways. Gratitude girl! So I let go of the frustration and fell into gratitude, all of a sudden the book became incredible.
At work I thoroughly enjoyed helping my client organize her kitchen. I worked for 3 hours and got a lot done. I love love love organizing. So I am doing what I love. Now to get paid big! I’ll work on that. It’s a fear, I see that.
I drank all of my cantaloupe smoothie while working. It was super yummy. Angel watched educational cartoons and drank some of her smoothie while I worked.
It was an hour drive to my next job. I listened to Oprah’s book on the drive and got a lot out of it. I was early for work so I stopped at the chiropractor and got an adjustment. Then went grocery shopping at H-E-B.
When I arrived at work Peggy and George weren’t there. I drank some of the banana, date, spinach smoothie. Peggy called and asked me to give the dog a bath. So I vacuumed the whole house, cleaned out the silverware drawer, gave the dog a bath, started laundry and took the dog on a walk. Peggy and George arrived home, then I organized the plastic containers, organized the laundry room cupboards, folded laundry and put it away and finished the banana smoothie.
After this job was finished I listened to the last of the Oprah book on the drive to my next job. It was a beautiful book and I cried. My last job of the day was a dog sitting job. I fed the dogs, then let them play out back for a while.
It was time to go home. I ate the small avocado on the drive and listened to Oprah’s Super Soul podcast with Richard Rohr.
At home, I unloaded the car, put away groceries, took a shower, crankily got an uncooperative Angel ready for bed, tucked her in and wrote my blog.
I think I will sleep good tonight.
