Walking the Path, even though it's Bumpy...

Good Morning!

There is no question this journey has unfolded completely different that I had imagined. It's not been a straight B-Line of success that's for sure!

But I have celebrated many small victories and have made lots of big changes in my life style. I've really felt so tired this summer, overall just pretty exhausted and not so full of energy. Don't get me wrong, it's been good to rest and catch my breath...I just know that I really need to just keep doing my best, stay close to my plan and tracking, and look for openings and opportunities to fold in exercise and tighten up my healthy eating routine.

Cindy & I have both been really scared about finances lately and that really makes it tough to not get discouraged and off track.

I'm going to be looking at a part-time job this week that hopefully will work around our already busy schedule running our business. But you gotta do what you gotta do. Being anxious everyday is no fun at all, and it makes me feel just terrible inside that I'm not providing better for Cindy...I don't think it has much to do with our business not being a good business, I think it's just that across the board right now in our country, people are only spending money on what they need...nothing extra. Sorry for the ramble....just airing it out a bit.

Have a Smooth Sunday, Ryan

    Ryan, don't ever feel that you're rambling on. We're here to read what you have to say & support you in whatever way we can. I hope you find your part time job, but I also hope it doesn't add more stress. Stay calm and cool. Hopefully, things will work out for the better.

    Money worries can take a person down so fast!! I know from experience. (Seems like everyone does!) Running your own business in these economic times is so scary. Good for you for doing what you need to do. I hope you can find something you like. I know your positive attitude will bring good vibes to any place you work, and you will be a blessing to others.

    I've been having an awful time of it with family stuff this summer, so have been feeling pretty crummy. I have been going to the gym daily which has probably kept me from going nuts. The bathing suit I ordered should be in today or tomorrow, so I'll FINALLY be able to try water aerobics.

    Ryan, you and Cindy hang in there and keep on the good path. Things have to get better eventually.

    Air it out - air it out all you want. That's what we're here for so you can get it out and not resort to shoving it in -


    Hang tight buddy!

    I'm glad you shared your money issues; so we all can chime in and give you moral support. So many of us have been there or are there currently!
    I admire your entrepreneurial spirit, and I hope the economy will pick up so we all can feel a little more secure. In the meantime, we all need to adapt and do what we can to make ends meet. Good luck in the job search!

    Well, Ryan, you certainly know you are not alone on any of these fronts. I think every day we are hanging by a thread, and that is a place that has me running for food! It shows, I am 'maintaining' but not losing at the moment, which has got to be okay until I can pull myself out of what has been a summer-long depression.
    Hang in there! And good luck looking for work!

    I hear you on the financial worries. I am just praying everyday that I can keep my house, and that DH ALex gets a steady job that will work into the needs of the family. I have a daughter with a disability, so it's hard to have 2 people working. But something will come through eventually. I think I am being taught patience. Not an easy lesson for me.

    I hope you can get a part time job that will help you through until the economy picks up again. I'm glad to see you are committed to your program. You are inspiring to a lot of people. Stay strong -- Kathleen

    I hear ya on the money side of things. It causes a lot of unwanted stress. You'll pull through. Good luck finding a new p/t job too.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Take care and stay healthy.
