Long Hard Road Ahead

Last Update: February 16, 2019

Life is a journey, not a destination. Not truer words have ever been spoken/typed/thought. It is true, life is about the journey, not the arrival. Things sometimes go sideways and we encounter unexpected obstacles along the way. It has been an interesting month and a half for Tina and I and we are still here and we are fighting to stay here. I still contend that WA is the best training and support that can be found for not only the website building and affiliate training, but for the every day encouragement that every one of us needs (whether we know and/or admit it or not)

Health and financial issues abound for Tina and I and we are truly fighting to be here past August. No alarm sounding and not sympathy, this is supposed to be an encouraging post. It takes effort to have something that is not only worth having, but also that you take value in. We value the support, the community and the training that is offered here in the WA arena.

So, I reiterate the call..... Never give up, never give in, never back down. I am cheering us on as much or more than any of you. Life is a struggle. Some days are more difficult and some days you can coast, but it is always worth the effort. If you are the praying type, we will take it. If not, then please keep us in your thoughts and on your hearts. But, no matter what, know that even if worse comes to worse and we do have to leave, we will be back. It isn't a matter of if we want to be here, because we absolutely do. We pretty much NEED to be here.

So, to all of you who are thinking if this is worth it, IT IS. To anyone going through hard times - You Are Not Alone. If you are thinking of calling it quits - think again. I have been to others "communities" and they pale in comparison. No one ever said that it was easy, but so many have said that it is worth it.

Thank you all in advance for your well wishes and encouragement. Keep going, keep working, keep advancing.

Blessings ~ Frank & Tina (free4life)

I love this " No one ever said that it was easy, but so many have said that it is worth it." I've never heard it before. I truly hope that you and your other half have worked everything out and that you are back in the saddle again. I appreciate your kind words of wisdom and all of your posts. You take care and remember your own advice.

Pace yourself,
Decide to succeed,
Always remember its a long hard road ahead but you got this!

Dear Frank and Tina. Thank you for posting such an encouraging blog when you yourselves are also struggling to keep going. Know that its from the trenches that we make the biggest gains and have the ability to help the most people if we simply just keep going. In our brokenness the light inside of us can shine through and becomes a beacon of hope to others who are also struggling to find their way.

God bless
Laurie

Hi guys.

"Health and financial issues abound for Tina and I"
Really sorry to hear about these difficulties you both are suffering. I truly hope that you overcome them in short order.

Life is weird like that: many-a-time, it seems that it puts us through the wringer in order to get us to a better place.

Your determination is inspiring and I thank you for sharing.

Best of luck in everything, 👍

Frank & Tina,
I am so sorry - you two have always been dear to me!
The support and encouragement you provide here are
unmatched by anyone, to have to see you two leave
even tho sometimes it cannot be helped will sadden me :(

You do have my prayers and will be in my heart and should
it happen that you leave for even the shortest amount of time
know that you are going to be missed by this member very
much!

God Bless both of you and keep you,
Always,
Susan

Nobody ask a whichcraft interferance in your life
When this happened ask God to protect you for such
tnings because I telling you those bad things exist
And they here to bring you down even you don't want to but that why they are here to control your life and bring more drama
So in the Name of Jesus Christ I forbid you enter into my life ,everyone who wish me bad luck from now on receive back to the sender...according to the God's Law
So be it, Amen

It's hard to see where your going when your trying to navigate through the storm but the storm will end and the road will clear that is why you must keep moving forward with this and in life...it's not easy, if it was easy everyone would be doing it. Priorities. If you have to leave that is because there are more important priorities that need tending too at this time and that is the most important road to take for you. So do what's the priority and don't even think about anything else...

Hi Frank and Tina, it sounds, like the storm clouds, are gathering on your Horizon, wishing you the best as you work through possible solutions.

It can be hard when we get caught in that no-mans when we still have that foot in the need to make money to pay the bills camp.

Really hope that it all works out for you, still, plenty of time between now and August, keep on creating.

Take care and don't forget to look after each other, face your troubles head on and don't forget that we are all here for you.

A winning combination all around.

Alex

You said it best - life is not about the destination, it is about the journey, and whom you are grateful enough to help and share along the way.

It has been said twice -- you don't stop learning until you get called home, because we were not put here for "easy" we were put here to learn, grow, develop and advantage, and share that knowledge with those around us. We ALL have something on the inside of us that someone else has a need for.

Something I recently learned out bike riding, the downhill ride is not appreciated as much until the challenge of going up the hill has been accomplished (I meant that in a good way). The least amount of downhill I do the better I like it, because downhill is too easy, it doesn't require any effort. And we were not put here for "no effect" we were put here to build, strengthen, grown, expand, and share (just like a tree). What better way to do that then to go up the hill. It's nice to have a downhill coast from time to time to breath and gather thoughts, but the more uphill, the more benefits that are going to be earned, and well deserved, and you will also cherish them along the way.

Always remember, what does kill you, will only make you stronger. Grow on the inside, grow on the outside, makes a person, healthy, wealth and wise. The wiser one gets, the more knowledge there is to share with others. You have a gift to share with others.

Thoughts, prayers, best wishes to you both,
If there is anything I can do please ask,
Ronnie

Hey frank and tina..as you all know i am technically homeless myself ..at the moment staying with friends and looking for a foster for my dolly in the meantime.Anyways yes is a long sometimes hard painful journey but with that journey also has many bright spots.Like wealthy affiliate and the community as i have posted before many times if it was not for this community and the inspiration gained from many members here .well i dont know what i would have done...yes we NEED to be here it is so much more than a want.. Determination ..stubborness..a WILL to not give up and a few guardian angels . You also have many guardian angels on your side and we are all praying for you.. I might be down myself right now but if you need anything even if just somebody to talk to i will try to help. Keep your chin up and lets keep hiking up this hill..i hear there might be some bright spots just around the bend ☺
Please let me know if you need anything Cathy

I joined back in 2017 .. poked at WA training for a while but "Life" was happening, and I had to leave ... Came back in 20!8, and went Premium just in time for a Major Crap Storm to hit us (ended up virtually homeless, Plus Physical and Medical problems, etc) ... Anyhow, U am still here and am now getting Serious, and hoping/Praying for the best.
Y'all Hang In There, and I will too .. and "Lord Willing, and the creek don't rise" We will both Make It :-)

You are in my thoughts, and prayers!! If there is anything I can do, and it's within my power to help, please PM me, I'd be happy to do what I can for you.

Keep going!
