Remember to Be Thankful. Remember Your "Why"

Last Update: February 27, 2020

Can you remember why you decided to join Wealthy Affiliate? Why you first wanted to start an online business? Can you remember why you wanted to make money with a blog or website?

This is a short, photo explanation of my "whys" It has to do with the babies.

Reason for this post: It is important to remember to be thankful for what is good in our lives. It is important to remember our "why/"

If we take time to scan the news and even the WA blog roll, it is hard to miss the negativity, sadness, misdeeds and the rants. Life is hard. Sometimes the unknown, such as how the corona virus might affect us. is scary. If we can not completely unplug from the news, it will help our attitudes if we can remember the things that we are thankful for.

3 Reasons Why I Am Thankful

Below are pictures of 3 reasons why I am thankful to be able to work from home. Had I had a JOB in town, I would have missed being able to witness each of these moments. It would be much more difficult to keep an eye on the babies and make sure they are staying safe. Staying out of trouble.

Reason 1:


Reason 2

Playful Foals

Reason 3

New born calves

As a bonus, blogging allows me to share the baby pictures with other people.

Blogging allows me to share what farm life is really like. Sometimes it is great. Other times, it is very challenging. An online, affiliate marketing business allows me to be physically on the farm - during both the good and the bad times.

Back to you....

I hope that you are able to take the time today to remember why you are wanted to join Wealthy Affiliate.

I hope that you can take time to be thankful for the good things in your life.

This is sweet. I love it. I needed to see some innocence and goodness. This brightened my day. I am thankful for so much and I started losing sight of why. This article may be more important than you even realize yourself. I hope it has others like it has me. What a blessing!

Thanks for asking. Why? I started blogging on my other site because I wanted a place where I could rant a little, to vent a little, to share my thoughts and to be able to talk about Alzheimers disease which is afflicting my father. I was also looking to supplement my retirement income a little.

Your blog sounds like the perfect outlet to share the challenges associated with a loved ones Alzheimers. I wish that I could say that I have no idea what you are talking about.....

In time, I hope it will be a place where lots of other people can see that they are not alone in the challenges they face caring for their loved ones.

I want to be here because I'm not physically able to do a lot of what I am doing in my 27 year old locksmith business. The potential additional income stream is an important factor too, but also the freedom to be with my family and work on all the things that interest me! Thanks for asking, Sondra!

Jeff, I doubt you will ever run out of things to talk about on your blogs because you have so much that interests you.

I hope that you, the blog dogs and your family all have a great day.

I am grateful every day Sondra. Lovely photos.
I created this lifestyle to give me time with my grandchildren, to look after them so my daughters could work. My work fits around it.
I gets lots of family time and work I love. It also can go with me when I go away to visit other family for long weekends.
Couldn't do any of that with a regular job.

Thank you.

I am glad that you have been able to create the lifestyle that you have.

My grandparents babysat my kids when they were little and I was working. Neither my kids or I will ever regret the time spent with my grandparents rather than being just another kid at a daycare center.

Best wishes as you work on your website.

Beautiful animals, Sondra. I am thankful for Wealthy affiliates, as I was really struggling to learn about affiliate marketing before I joined this platform. Now i'm learning the proper skills to succeed.

Thanks for the post!
