Six Months With Wealthy Affiliate

Last Update: August 27, 2016

I am a little behind getting this post written. I celebrated my sixth month anniversary with Wealthy Affiliate on August 20th. That also happened to be my husband's 50th birthday.

I would like to say I have made a lot of progress in the last month, but I haven't. I have been dealing with a lot of personal stuff the past couple of months, which has sapped me a little of my motivation and creativity. That being said, I am not going to give up on what I started. I know why I started this journey, so giving up and quitting is not an option.

I enjoy being a part of this community and know that my website will be helpful to people when I start getting more traffic. I used to be on Facebook every day, but now I am on here all the time. I look forward to reading the posts and trainings and learning more and being motivated and inspired. I feel like I miss out on making contact with friends when I am not on here each day.

I am hoping that now that the personal stuff I was dealing with is behind me that the motivation and creativity will return. I will have limited time, since I am now back to work and don't have as much time as I did during the summer. But I will continue moving forward and do what I can at my own pace.

I had hoped to have the certification course completed by now, but I don't. I know that will come as well. I will keep plugging away at it. Even though i have been dealing with some personal issues, I also know that I am very blessed! The difficult times we go through are difficult, but we also need to look at the blessings around us. When we do that, the difficulties don't seem so bad. That doesn't mean that the difficulties don't affect us, such as it has me with my motivation and creativity, but I know that now that they are behind me that things should start to look up.

We never know in life what we are going to be thrown. We just have to handle it as positively as we can. That can be difficult, but once we are on the other side, we will see how strong we really are. And who know, maybe these things I have been going through will turn out to be blessings in disguise. That is often how I look at it.

I know this has been kind of a downer post, but when personal trials go on in our lives, which they are going to it's a part of life, it can bring us down. I do know that these personal trials are just going to make me stronger and I will get back on the road I started when I began this journey six months ago. I just have to get my mind back to where it was, now that I don't have to worry about these personal issues any longer.

I also want to thank all of my WA friends for being so supportive and helping me a long the way. You are another reason why I will not quit on myself. I may be struggling right now with my motivation and creativity, but I know that it will return and my website will be great someday!

We all have times like these and yes, it's easy to give up. But, when you get to that point, looking at why you started is a very good way to reset your goals. I know you'll be back with a vengeance! And looking forward to it!
