Pay Day

So let me go back to that “mental turn-on list” I made and go into detail about the first one I listed, there is no paticular order.

1. Getting paid for being myself.

There is nothing greater for me than knowing someone appreciates what I do. There once was a speaker I saw in highschool that said “get a job that makes you happy, a job that you want to wake up and do everyday”. Above all things that make me the happiest and what I look forward to every day is taking care of kids and being the “house manager”. Technically I don’t get paid for this, unless you consider my husband working 40 hours a week payment. Which in a sense I would consider it.

I also have my own business and do accounting on the side. I wear many hats. But I like all the hats I have. And love it more because I am happy to do it all.

I am not a person that chases money.  In my heart I know that God will always provide everything I need. (that’s also in the bible – not sure which scripture – but bug me if you really want to see it).  So I have a business and do accounting not for financial purposes but out of pleasure and to get paid for that is a bonus.

One might think that this is easier said than done. And I wouldn’t blame you, everyone always says I’m very “lucky” when it comes to money and jobs. But I say I’m blessed.

I’m blessed because I haven’t done anything but align myself with Him. And acknowledge that His will will  be done weather I approve or not – so might as well get with it than fight it.

Do you think that I can control if someone buys my shoes or not? No. I might be able to advertise, do promotions, have sales, but at the end of the day the choice is solely out of my hands. I control nothing. And knowing that truth sets me free.

Free from the bondage of thinking I need to have $100 pair of jeans to feel good about myself.

Free from thinking I need a minivan just because I have a kid and I need the “room” – I’m surviving 2 kids and a two-door coupe just fine – it sucks – but we get around.

Free from thinking that we only need to eat organic food to be healthy.

Free from feeling like I need to go out every Friday night and drop $60 on a dinner.

My life might be simple but it is full.

Full of love, passion, integrity, freedom, peace and joy.

I look at the cross and know that the most serious of sacrifices was done for me so that I can have this freedom.

So if I’m “lucky” so are you!

  1. Roxanne…your site makes me happy. After immersing myself in producing my darker pieces on Echoes Across Time, I feel like a castaway who finally found land when I surf your blog. You are joyful and your site is so necessary. Thank you. ~DL McHale (www.dlmchale.com)

    • The grass may be greener on the other side – but what about all the bills it takes to keep up that grass? I am happy you have found joy in simplicity. The best things in life are free =D
