No Days Off

So.. for the past week and a half, I have set a few goals for myself, one being to work everyday that I can as many hours as possible until I make some of the major moves that are overdue. The only days I plan to be off is if I happen to be sick, have to take my daughter somewhere or to the doctor or when I have some errands to run or something. No days off is my motto and I am very ambitious towards this goal. I plan on maintaining it until my body physically gives out because I am just that determined at this point. Have you ever been so determined to do something and have your heart set on something that you pray that nothing will stop you from getting to where you want to be? Well, at 25, I had an epiphany that I need to be doing just that. I need some motivational words from others getting started in life or other tenured members of MyLot that have been in my shoes. How did you overcome your life obstacles to get where you are today or how are you overcoming them now? All responses welcome =)

I really don't think that you will be able to keep up with your motto of not taking any days off for a very long time. The reason that I believe that will be the case is because of the fact that my husband has had times at his place of employment where they've been really busy and he has worked until his feet were about to fall off and then he will ultimately have a day where he is able to get some rest. That said, the way that I've overcome the obstacles that I've had in my life to get to where I am today is by having strong faith. I don't feel like I would be anywhere in my life without the faith that I have.

So far, so good! I've had one day off in the past month or so and that happened to be this past Sunday, it was nice to relax and just do nothing! But, now I'm back at it, but I really need to pick up a few more hours for this week.. I wish I had the willpower to work 50 hours a week every week, I'd have so much money!!! Physically, I feel I can do it, but mentally.. I cannot. I'm not really a fan of working, but hey.. I guess who is really? We all know that we have to work to live and by a certain age grow to some form of what I guess we could call "acceptance".. and there are a few like me that despise what they do, yet do it so well!! Maybe one day, I will just swallow my wants and pride and do what is necessary and a little more! And you're right, faith plays a strong part in things. I haven't been to church in over two years... I have no excuse really except for the fact that I am not really feeling the church scene, though I am strong believer. I know the right way... which I guess is ultimately worse because I am not living my life "right". Hmm.. maybe someday...
