What I Am Grateful For Today

Here are some of the things that I am grateful for today:

  • While I haven't got my adsense payment yet, I'm grateful for the fact that I know that some people have posted that they have received their "Payment in process" line in their adsense accounts so I know that mine can't be too far behind and that I will have it soon!

  • I'm grateful for the food that I had for dinner

  • I'm grateful for my cellphone - just spent about 40 minutes talking to my brother

  • I'm grateful for my computer and my internet access and being able to afford paying my internet access

  • I'm grateful for my house

  • and last but not least I'm grateful for my cat!

I'm Still Waiting For My Adsense Check......

This is one of those situations where I should note what I am grateful for. I'm grateful that I'm getting an Adsense check at all. So many people have said how they have added adsense to their sites and have made little to no money from it yet.

You have to earn at least $100 during the month before Adsense will send you a payment and fortunately I was able to earn this amount last month. So now that I'm supposed to get an adsense payment this month for last month's earnings, I'm anxiously awaiting the payment.

What Would I Do If (When) I Won The Lottery?

I do buy lottery tickets every now and then. Recently a group of women won a $200 Million Dollar + lottery and I am very happy for them. I know that that money will come in handy for them.

They all said that they would continue to work - at least for now.

What would I do if I won the lottery? Well the first thing that I would do is pay off my bills and I would pay the mortgage off on my house. I would also buy a good used car - I'm not too much a fan of new cars!

More importantly I would set some of the money aside and keep it in the bank to use in case of emergencies.

Also too, if the amount of lottery money that I won was substantial I think that I would start a foundation to help people who are having financial difficulties.

I would also donate a percentage to my favorite charity causes.

And while I know that wise financial planning has to play a good part in keeping my finances together I am also going to have some "mad" money! Just to go and buy something that will make me feel good!


I just spent some time updating my website and it made me realize that I have a talent (I should say an additonal talent)

I also think about this when I'm watching television. I see a commercial with Rachel Ray in it and what comes to my mind is here is someone that loves to cook and she has managed to make a successful career out it. Cooking is one of her many talents.

My talent for being able to create and modify webpages is very useful for me. I haven't thought of becoming a webpage designer but I actually could because I do have experience with it.

You may not think that you have any talents but my guess is that you would probably be wrong.

No Mail For 2 Days!

One of the things that I most definitely have to work on is worry!

Even my astrological sign says that I do tend to worry alot!

I did not get any mail for 2 days! A lot of people would probably consider this a blessing because it would have meant no bills and no advertisements! But for me it made me worry. The thoughts that came in my mind was that 'well maybe the mail stopped delivering here' - now why would I think of something like that!

Instead of dwelling on the negative aspect of my worry - what I'm supposed to do in a situation like this is to turn this around.

Instead of worrying about not getting any mail I should be glad to know that my mail is in order and that I haven't done anything to cancel my mail. I just didn't get any mail for two days.

On day three - I got mail!

I'm Dealing With Negative Thoughts Today

Where I feel lack I should feel abundance!

Today has been a day of negative and angry thoughts. If anything this should show me what I do not want!

Here is my "Things That I Am Grateful For" list for today

  • I am grateful that I have a computer and am able to be online

  • I am grateful to have a blog that can be visited from people all over the world

  • I am grateful for my adsense income.

  • I am always grateful for my cat who is lounging by the window now

  • I am grateful for my home

  • I am grateful for my talents and passions

  • What I am most grateful for right now is my sanity!

A "word" here about negative thoughts:

From what and all that I have learned the thing to do with negative thoughts is to turn them into positive thoughts. Although I am having some difficulty with this the mere fact that I'm posting about it now helps me to realize that!

So the negative thoughts that I am having I am going to turn them into positive thoughts - meaning if I am feeling a lack of something then I going to turn that around to having a feeling of the abundance of it!

It seems to be a very hard thing for me to do but I am going to work on it for the rest of the day!

What I Am Grateful For Today

I'm grateful for:

  • the leftover "takeout" that I had for dinner tonight because it reminds me that I am capable of earning money online - this time with Adsense and it also reminds me of how good it feels to be able to afford ordering out every once in a while!

  • I'm always grateful for my little cat - who is my furry companion and "fight" partner! She's eating dinner now!

  • the jazz music that's playing in the background while I'm at the computer

  • the money that I have that is going to allow me to buy more food and household essential items

  • being inside a nice warm house while the winds and the rain are wrecking havoc outside

  • my computer and being able to afford and have internet access. I'm also grateful for my all-in-one printer that allows me to make copies at midnight - a time of my choosing - so that I don't have to go "out" to make copies

  • the talents that I do have! Just being able to have a blog - or should I say blogs - and continually being able to add more posts about my life so that other people can see that they are not alone with their problems. Hopefully this blog will help and inspire others too!
