Good Morning, Everyone! Ain't life grand?

This morning, I woke early, which seems to be my new norm, ready to get on it!

I wanted to write my post early, knowing it will not be posted 'til after midnight. Following the WA guidelines for posting "one", per day, I have fallen into, after midnight, as my slot, which seems to be just fine!

My primary purpose, for joining WA, at first, was to "Make Money"! No surprise! However, now that I'm here, fulling engaged, having great fun, getting and helping others, that motivation, rapidly took a backseat, to the true reason, I am here.

My mind's eye, quickly became focused on how I could really share and care for others, right here!... with NO thought of personal reward!...Just what comes naturally, and from my heart.

I realized, this is not a competition...or , so I thought! Ha! Ha!

Today, I needed to do my writing, early, because writing has become something, I now, look, so, forward to doing! My challenge, is working, and way, before 21 days!

Getting my writing commitment completed, early, will allow me to now spend the day, on another challenge...overcoming my fear of computers, which means building my website!

Today's post was going to be about ways to overcome speaking challenges, a topic addressed with another individual, right here, but that will wait until, tomorrow.

My unexpected "reward"? Today, I was informed that I am now in the "Top 200"!

Someone spoke of ranking, last week...I checked out and did notice my numbers were going down, rapidly, but, okay, that's nice...back to sharing and caring! I have "bigger fish to fry"!

The explanation for the reward? I'm being rewarded for what has become natural, to me! Just, how cool is that? I love learning about others, and what makes them tick! Astrology was my vehicle, allowing me to be privy to deep motivations, in myself, firstly, and then to others, as my "gift" grew. I was a Nancy Drew "junkie"! I love a mystery!

"What you give out, will comeback threefold!"

WA is a supreme example of this very idea. The more you give, the more you get!

In life, this is true of "good", as well, as "bad"! I've learned to temper negative output, which usually stemmed from my big mouth!

I've learned to watch, what I say, and how I say it! Words spoken or written, can never be taken back! How, I did this was also a process, enough for another full blog, again, to be saved for another day! I've put it on "My List of Future Articles", which is growing by leaps and bounds! ...another unexpected reward!

I'm going to close, for now, and perhaps, add some additional thoughts, before I post, this, after midnight. I'll grab, another cup of coffee, and visit with some wonderfully, inspiring, WA folks, but not for long...I must face this computer "demon", and get to work on my certification training.

I know, "God's got something good planned for me, today, and everyday!", so a can wake with a song in my heart!

Today's song, I guess could be, "After midnight, we can shake that tambourine!"

Wishing everyone, also, a blessed day.

Barb

Notes on today...Faced that demon and hit a brick-wall. The beautiful mountain background, I deleted by mistake,...tried to restore... a futile effort. I send out an SOS, and had several wonderful replies. I still was not successful!

While waiting patiently for rescue, I searched my photos from my cross country trip, this summer, from Monterrey, California, through Colorado, on to Michigan.

Eureka! I found one even more suitable, from my Blackberry!!! Yippee!

Now, how do I get them to my computer to upload??? Time to "Give it a rest!"

" Oh, I won't think about that today! I'll think about it , tomorrow...for tomorrow is another day!" Scarlet O'Hara- Gone With the Wind

It's, almost, "The Midnight Hour"...and time to post!...then off to bed...ZZZ

Congratulations on your achievement. That's quite an accomplishment. The best teachers lead by example, and you set a great example. Like you, I find I really enjoy participating in the community here at WA. It's a fun learning experience. My own site is coming along, not as fast as I'd like, but it's not a race. While I love writing, it's sometimes hard to write for my site. I guess my fear of computers has a lot to do with it. Anyhow, one of my short term goals is to get where you are. Congratulations again. See you at the top.

I admire this great undertaking! From very early in the morning until far past midnight! Keep up the good work! You remind me Nathaniell’s story (You can check it out going to the rankings; he is always in the top 10). When he discovered affiliate marketing, he worked really hard and saw results super fast! Good for you! Best wishes! :)

Thank, you, Phil!
I appreciate this. Everyday, just gets easier, and the discipline, is something I know I have needed, but didn't want the commitment!
Now, I'm afforded, a larger audience for my ideas, rather, than just my mouth! LOL
Have a wonderful day, Thanks, again!

Hi B,
I like that too.. to give, and not expect back. Then when you think things are against you, other, positive, things start to come back, and life is great again.

Why don't you email that picture from your blackberry to yourself. Then open the email on your computer, and from there you upload it to your website?
Reply
brichnow21 Premium
Thank, you, Wouter!
I did just that, as suggested, as well, last night. Now, from email, to site...Today's project!
Wish me luck!! LOL
Thank, you, again!
