2/14/2018Thank you Chelsea,I think I suffer from constant hiccups. I am glad I am not the only one that enjoys motivating people along the way! Isincerely appreciate that last comment! The comment about planning your work and then working your plan isn't mine. Iheard it in the past year and fell in love with the simplicity behind it. Enjoy the rest of your week!Vanessa2/15/2018 ThursdayPOST 1Fredline this is an issue that I am constantly fighting, rewarding myself. It is actually much deeper thanthat for me at times; sometimes I refuse to take care of myself. I am not talking about the daily things likehygiene, but the serious things like going to the doctor when I had the flu last week. It is not that I do notwant to go to the doctor, but I am the only one in my family that does not have insurance, so I suffer. Wejust literally do not have the money for me to go to the doctor so I do not. These things for me go handin hand because I want my family to have what they need first, and a lot of times that means I gowithout. That also includes rewarding me when I should. If I lose 15 pounds, I will wear the same clothesinstead of buying some that fit. This is something I must get better at. I am going to follow your lead andschedule in some “ME” time.POST 2Chelsea in my experience, saying no can be one of the hardest things to do. I have been best friends withmy high school friends since elementary – we have always been super tight knit. There are 8 of us. In thepast 3-5 years I have literally had to cut ties with several of my lifelong friends because I could not say noto them. I found myself loving them more than they loved me or themselves for that matter. My love forthem caused fights between my husband and I and put me in some downright bad situations. Saying NOwas one of the hardest things I have ever had to do! In the past year, I have realized that was the bestchoice I could have made for my family and I. They know that I love them, but that I won’t sacrifice mefor them.02/16/2018 FridayPOST 1Marie when I was growing up and in high school I promise I thought my notes are what gotme through. I was the master note taker. One of my biggest fears when thinking abouttaking an online class was, ‘How am I going to take notes without being in front of aninstructor?” Although I do not want to admit it, I am still trying to figure out how I am goingto do that. You also pose a great question, what is important when you are taking notes? Iguess the good news is that the lectures are given to us and we can go through andhighlight what is important (even though all of the information is relevant). In myexperience, if it is on the lecture notes, most teachers have it on the tests.
POST 2Cheyenne the struggle is real my friend. My biggest thing at the moment is my life isunfolding as I write. Right as I am getting ahold of my schedule and all my planning, myfather in law gets sick. He was put in the hospital last night and now I am trying to
