Stages in Life Do Not Always Go The Best Way.

Life is so difficult. We have challenges in childhood, as an adult, and growing old. We all are so selfish on life, do we show sympathy for others?

A Friend, Like A Father, Is On A Spiral

13 things mentally strong people doI met a friend of mine almost 15 years ago. Today he is in Williamsport Hospital and will be getting his second foot removed. He has had thick blood for a long time. It has caught up to him. When I fist met him he worked at an auto shop. His daughter was only 5 years old. Time flies by but not  always for the better.

When I was doing advertising for Amazon he had his first leg removed. He was really depressed and didn’t know how he would get around. I showed him a wheelchair carrier I sold. He liked it because it would fit good on his van, easy to take his wheelchair up, and is sturdy. This cheered him up a little, but over the last few years he has gotten even more depressed.

A little over a year ago he had to have a foot removed. They severed from below the knee. It had to heal before he could get an artificial leg, he still has not gotten one yet. As of Sunday it was determined that he would have to have the other foot removed as well. I was so sad for him. He had to make a decision to have it removed or not. I had reached my opinion decision, but that does not matter it is all up to him.

Yesterday he made the decision to have the foot removed. Why he decided this I do not know yet. I do think this is a good decision though. His doctor said that he would get him fitted for an artificial leg for the one he had done last year. He will have to undergo therapy for awhile. In the meantime his new leg will be made and he should get it in two weeks. Then in six months to a year he can get one for the foot he had removed yesterday. I hope within the next year or two he get back to the ways he was five years ago. He will be able to mow the lawn, cook on the grill, and probably be able to drive again. He will not feel helpless. I know it will get better.

 Financial Hardships

I think we all, except those born into money, have had a financial hardship. I have had it, my parents have had it, my friendsworkoutplanz.com  http://workoutplanz.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/daily-routine-change.jpg have had it, and my co-workers have had it. I think if everyone who has had a financial hardship named who they know in the same situation the list would be indefinite. These are hard-times. We need to make plans, budget, and save.

My first financial hardship was when I graduated high school and moved out of town and went to college. I went to ITT Technical Institution for Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD). The class was five days a week and four hours a day. I had two jobs, one in the mourning and one in the evening. Everything was cheaper back then and the pay in Harrisburg, PA was not that bad at that time. The problem I had was coming home every weekend and using a full tank of gas, going out to eat all the time, going to the bar, buying video games, well blowing my money. I never learned about budgeting my money until a few years ago. If we do not budget our money we are not aware where our money goes. We will spend money when we do not have it, up our credit cards, and go into debt. Stay out of debt by simply budgeting your income and expenses. Trust me it needs to be done.

We all have problems in life, we just need to find a solution.

Do Not Lose Your Passion

“Follow your #heart and you will never lose your way.“ #Passion #Life

follow your heart

Do Not Lose Your Passion

Loneliness, downheartedness, astray, and disarrangement are the way one feels without love. I know because this is how I feel now. There was a better day in my life. I had love, close friends, family, and positive ideas to look forward to in the future. Well what was the future in the past has become the present. My roads have been rough and I have been alone.

Future Plans From The Past

I graduated high school in 2000. I had plans of getting a degree, meeting the girl of my dreams, and having a family. I moved out of town and went to ITT Technical Institution to get my degree in Computer Aided Drafting and Design. I liked it because I love Math. I did well but had problems that happens in life.

Plan Your Budget

I did not realize at that time how hard it was to pay bills, buy food, take car of my car, gas, and have free time. I kept running out of money. I had never been educated on budgeting my income. I have now. I suggest to anyone who reads this learn how to budget. There are apps on Androids to help you.

I lost so much money I tucked my tail and ran home. I only had a semester left in college and I gave up. I regret that decision to this day, if I could go back in time this is one thing I would change.

Strive Forward

I did not give my degree up. I went to Pennsylvania College of Technology for a week. I took Culinary Arts a hobby, I will say, of mine. Gave it up because it was not what I really wanted. I still had an unknown desire in my heart, a passion.

When I lived away I learned a lot about business, setting goals, and being a leader. This always inspired me to do better, to strive for greater goals. I feel that if I set an example, set goals for others I can help them at work and in life.

I once received a suggestion from a manager of mine to go to college for management. I thought, “Yeah right, why do I want to do his job!?” But after going home I reconsidered it. I set my goal to become a manager.

Set A Goal Before You Get The Job

I went out looking for a job in food service, because that was my experience, to be hired on as a manager. I had experience as a Team Leader, several years in food service, and always did great with customers. It took time, but by the Grace of God I was hired at Long John Silver’s. The General Manager and Area Manager made an arrangement with me. They hired me on as crew with a higher wage and trained me in counting cash, inventory, orders, and more. They also guaranteed the intent of promoting me. It did happen. Although when you reach the top of the mountain you have to go down.

Reach Your Goal, But Planes Do Not Work Out

In my last year at LJS my General Manager retired and I was promoted. His Assistant Manager took over the restaurant. I never felt good with her from day one. I had a couple employees complaining that I was making them do their job. Wow what do you get paid for? I was mainly trained to close the restaurant, not open. One day I was scheduled to open. I messed up.

Now the night before the deposit is made. In the morning the manager runs it to the bank for a scheduled deposit. This has to be done because of the deposit made on the books the night before. If the manager is late then it screws things up. Well I was a little late. There are two reasons. One was because I was scheduled one short and the second was because another called off. I was trying to get everything ready and forgot about the deposit. I made several calls, even to other managers, and got no help. I was demoted because to deposit did not make it on time. I decided at that time to look for another job. It has been tumbling since.

My Passion Injured, But Not Defeated

When I was looking for a job my friend recommended me to apply where his father worked. I decided to take his suggestion. His father told me he got paid well with good benefits and vacation time, paid sick leave, and paid personal time. I got the job, but they were 12 hour shifts and I got stuck on nights.

I stayed positive the first couple years that I would make it to days, but gave it up eventually. I was in a department where only two people work on each shift. The only way I was going to get it if someone got fired or quit. I was the lowest one who would be able to bid on it.

During this time I was going to college online through DeVry. I majored for Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a focus on Management. I did not have a lot of time in a week, much less in a day so I took only fourteen credits at a time. This was taking forever. My loans were going higher and higher. I kept feeling more discouraged that I would never make it. I saw American InterContinental University (AIU). They run their sessions 5 weeks, whereas DeVry did it 8 weeks. I did not leave DeVry because they were not a great college, I did it because of time. If I had the time to do a whole semester then I would have stayed with DeVry and graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, but it did not happen. I do not think this is something I did wrong, just things happen because of choices we make in life. I graduated AIU with my Associates Degree in Business Administration.

To Place Passion In Effect or Let The Fire Burn

While I was in college I had this passion to start my own business. I wanted to be my own boss, put my ideas in effect, make plans, and have a drive. I was sure it would work, but it did not. I started as advertising for Amazon.com. I established a business, started a blog, and promoted on Facebook and Twitter.

I spent money for months before Amazon even talked to me about keywords. At that time I knew about tagging friends in Facebook to show them a post. I did not know much about Google. I thought if I just advertised it on Social Network I would get sales, I was so wrong. Time to replan. I researched, established a Google account, focused on keywords, scheduled posts on Facebook and Twitter, I even used Hootsuite to help me out. I did it so I could be on break at work and I could go to my web page and share a product on my Social Network. Hootsuite helped, but Facebook kept changing. I would get less likes, and less page likes. My traffic was screeching to a halt.

All I got from family was negative support. No one was supportive of my decision. Now with everything coming to an end I was lost. My passion was no longer, it had been extinguished. Now all I can look back on are failures.

A Ray Of Hope

There was a time in life when I felt positive, I had my passion, I could never stop striving for more. That was when I was around more positive people, I had set goals, I had choices in my life, and my mistakes I learned from and was not lectured all the time. This can happen again. Maybe I am on the right road. I like where I am working at now, I have goals set for a new car, a place to move, and maybe even a relationship. What happens after the dust finally settles? Maybe one day I will let you know.

Should We Agree Or Disagree?

This Last Week Was A Nightmare!

Should We Agree Or Disagree?

There are conflicts every day because we all have different opinions, point of views, priorities in life, and desires. Even in your own life your personality has changed over time. Think about the past for a moment. Go back 10 years from now. What was your point of view on a job? Was it just to make some money to get your video game? Maybe you had no idea what a job was? Of course you could have just been starting your new career. Now go back to today. What is your opinion? Is it about working 9 to 5, a paycheck, or about friends? I have always had the dream of finding a job where I enjoyed working, hanging with friends, and doing something after work. That has not come true yet, but I do still pray it does.

Generations

There are many different opinions among many different generations. You may be wondering what I am talking about. Well things have changed over the last 50, 60, 70 years. Science and technology have taken off into space and then into cyberspace. Some people have decided to follow while others have not come into the new Millennium.

Technology

I have met, talked to, and have family that have had challenges with the changes over the last 70 years. I have heard stories about when the first black and white television first came out. It wasn’t like a new Xbox game that everyone has to get. People did not have the money to go get a television when it came out. Eventually though the price dropped and a television got into everyone’s house and the economy boomed, a new era began. Now televisions are Hi Definition and color, WOW! Just like the television culture has changed.

Culture

There was more respect for one another back in the 50’s. Kids had respect for their parents, wives had respect for their husband, and the husband had respect for the family. In our history back then it was more of a family country. There were more small businesses, mom and pop shop, and kids having fun. Now laws have changed, industry has kicked up, and respect for one another has been thrown out the window. Parents wonder why their kids do not listen to them, it may be cause the kids do not get parental respect from their parents.

Ephesians 6:4

-Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord

Now I do not want to preach, but if things were better in the past maybe we need to go back to what our culture did back then. This verse tells me that not only is a child at fault, but so is the parent. If a child drops their drink on the floor and gets yelled at it will not make them a better person.

I know time has changed. Our likes on TV, the internet, how we spend money, internet, cell phones, and more. Just do not disagree if you both can be right. Just because two generations are in the same room and talking about the best cartoon in their generation ever, does not mean one is wrong. Agree to disagree.
