Saturday, already? Time for PCP or PPC?

Last Update: February 28, 2015

Saturday, already? Where does the time go?

After a deep deep night's rest, I awoke early this morning with the first light of dawn peeking through my window. In my drowsiness, I actuallly thought I saw rays of sunshine. No way...wishful thinking.

I made it to the coffee maker, only to look out the window and wonder...am I still dreaming? Did I move to the North Pole and just forget that I did? Yes, there is still a ground and mounds of white, and icicles hanging off my gutters that look like monstrous stalactites in an enormous igloo! Oh well, better not curse Old Man Winter or Mother Nature, lest I anger them and they withhold the beautiful art they create with weather!

I proceeded to sip my coffee, coax the dogs off their warm beds and get them out into the -8 degree temperatures, then turn on my computer. What a joy to see all the messages from the WA community. I am almost getting impatient with all the other emails I get....a lot for online shopping sites...(more about that later). What a delight that there are so many lovely, supportive, teaching activities going on around me within WA. So many associates/friends up and at 'em, or some who might not have ever taken the time to rest...staying up at all hours. Thank you WA community for welcoming and supporting me in this my first 10 days and sending constant encouragment and advice.

Anyway, I have opened many of the OTHER emails...luring me to take a look at the latest and greatest products and deals out there in the land of cyber retail. All it takes is a little bit of time to be pulled into thinking..."Oh, I do need that!"...."How did I and could I live without it?" PCP is what it's called....Pick, Click and Purchase, as opposed to PPC (which in my world, I am Paying Per Click...YIKES). And shortly thereafter, as I see my bank account dimish...buyer's remorse sets in.....do I cancel? or will this be the last time? No more!

Well anyway, I'm glad to admit that today, I deleted all those emails that were calling my name (my wallet really)....and instead, opened and read all my WA communications. I can tell you right now, a new pair of gloves, or another book (gosh, I have no time to read anything but the valuable information in lessons on WA), or piece of jewelry...I mean, come on...how may arms to wear bracelets, fingers to wear rings, ears, necks, feet...you get the drift, nothing compares to helping myself to the wealth and riches I find from all of you at WA. I can say that no delivery at my door can compare with the deliveries I receive on WA 24/7...with support to boot!

Upon this startling turn of events and alteration to my routine, I typed out on my computer and printed out the following:

"IF MY OUTPUT IS MORE THAN MY INCOME....MY UPKEEP WILL BE MY DOWNFALL"

Now say that 500 times, Lola.

I can just hear the phone ringing now...my bank calling me to see what's wrong....and what are these payments to "Premium" every month! Ha...when the time is right....they will know and understand I have turned a new leaf and that now I'm spending only time on my professional and personal development with WA.

Cheers and hats off to this great community. I look foward to a long, healthy and prosperous stay!

For those of you in the tundra...stay warm and everyone Have A Great Weekend!

Hi Lola, that is a fantastic first blog. I wish I had read your mantra earlier, but it would not have made my bank manager happy on Monday :). I really must also take a leaf out of your book and only spend time.

I look forward to reading more from you :)

Oh my gosh..too funny!
Thank you so much. I was nervous about writing..so I decided to just jump and let my fingers follow my mind. It was fun.
#2 will be shorter and easier to follow. In any event, I so appreciate you taking time to read, comment and hopefully, laugh!

I think sometimes you can write the best when you let your fingers do the talking and your mind just follows along. If that makes sense.

When I write, I find if I think too much then it can really become hard work, but if I just write I can produce some interesting stuff that I don't even believe I have written because it sounds great.

I love your writing style, it is amusing and honest, I wouldn't change it and in my opinion the blog was not too long, it was just right.
Lis :).

Upon reflecting and with some advice of a pro, I realize this is too long and probably won't hold anyone's attention/interest.
Well, "if at first you don't succeed......." There is always Blog #2!
