More Car Trouble. Good!

Hi Accented Family.

Can you believe it. Another car issue. Well, the best thing to do was to just fix it, right?

Ok, so last Sunday while driving to my tennis meetup group, I noticed my car overheating again. I couldn’t understand as I had just replaced my radiator by myself. So I figured I must have missed something while doing that.

Turned out I did overlook the tightening up of one of the coolant pipes which explained the overheating. Coolant spilled everywhere, but I couldn’t care less whether someone was going to help or not. (Thanks to my morning rituals that sets the tone for the day). I got to work and fitted the pipe back on, threw some more coolant in and I thought would’ve been the end of my situation….nope! As I’m driving to my tennis group which luckily was one block away, it started rapidly overheating again. This time I was already one hour late for my match. I figured to park my car in a paid parking area, went to play what ever was left my time, came back out and yep you guessed it, I googled “radiator troubleshoot” and Ta-da! I find out I needed to bleed out the air that was stuck in the radiator.

I immediately went to a church that was next to where I had parked, asked for masking tape, because that is what was required to tape over the funnel to fit snugly tight over the opening of the radiator and did exactly what the youtube guy told me to do. The youth pastor who happened to be there offered to drive me to a gas station so I could buy some more coolant. We shared a lot in that short ride.

In about 20 minutes the air was bled out and my car was running like an Austin Martin that was drivin for the first time….well, not quite, but you get the picture. lol

The next day I made sure to go to my friend who had a toasty warm garage to help me ensure that the pipe wasn’t going to come loose ever again.

Till next time

Hasta luego.

A total random occurance.

Hi Accented Family.

So today I managed to get my paycheck that was lost, all of it back into my account, my phone’s service provider issue fixed and I found $100 in one of my jeans pockets. Whoohooo!

So I felt like celebrating and went to Hutchinson, a place 10 minutes away from where I live to watch the movie, “A mountain between us”. It wasn’t going to start for another 40 minutes, so I decided to go to the sports bar opposite the theater to wait until the movie started.

As I was standing outside, I noticed this woman dressed in a suit coming out to smoke. I greeted her and she greeted me back. As she went inside, I went in after her and ordered a honey whiskey….something I don’t do at all. I originally wanted to order a Mike’s hard lemonade, but I kinda wanted to taste whiskey. I know, the pleasures of life. Lol

As I was drinking, she offered me her whole pizza which she only had two slices from. We started chatting and she told me she was a rep for a dental company. She travels a lot and it just so happens that she was crashing over in Hutchinson for the evening.

After quite a pleasant conversation, she offered me an interview at the company she was working for. Now, I don’t know whether I’ll accept it or not, but it was quite an offer. I can tell you how I got offered that job…because of the positive energy I was putting out. I’m not the greatest at English, but she wasn’t phased by it and since I changed my frame of mind, my life has been rocksteady and positive, because I allowed myself to learn from my failures and turned it into positive successes.

Don’t worry, I wasn’t drunk from that whiskey. After we separated, I asked her if I could take a selfie of us, but I did not ask her permission to have it up on my blog. Bummer! Maybe I can find her on Friday after or before my interview so to ask if I can have her permission to post our selfie in my blog.

Also, I never watched the movie. I went straight home to write this blog.

Till next time.

Happy Halloween Part 2

Hi Accented Family

So last night was a blast. I’ve been putting off to celebrate Halloween for so long and finally I got to do it with friends and let me tell you it was so much fun. I had two of my work buddies with me. A Picachoo and a Batman. I of course was the headless man.

So I had worked my landscaping job earlier with a smile by the way, because I was so looking forward to the evening. We decided to go to “The Haunting Experience ” in Cottage Grove.

We were taken for a 1/4 mile ride on a haytruck to an abandoned house where we were met with chainsaw characters, bloody zombies, narrow rooms and weird and bloody props.

At one point I found myself in a corner with a chainsaw character facing me. I really didn’t know what to do, but to do a little wave as to say “Hi, how are you?”. He must have thought I was terrified, so he handed me a lollipop. That was funny. They probably get people who are scared out of their minds, hence the handing out of lollipops.

The whole evening was spent with laughter and excitement. I hope to have many more fun times like we had last night.

Petty things that used to determine the rest of my day

Hi Accented Family.

I’m sitting here in Edina’s Target with a nice Grande White Chocolate Mocha waiting for my blood pressure medication from the pharmacist. I know, I need to cut back on the cappuccino, but hey…I haven’t had one of these babies in months. Lol

Anyway. I wake up most mornings at 5am or 6am and just feel great knowing I’m working towards greater health and financial freedom. I have never felt like this ever in my life. It’s something I have made a conscious decision about.

An example of what has changed is the following.
This morning I woke up at 5am, did my morning ritual which is what I always start out with which is watch a motivational video and if there’s time, watch the latest news happenings, watch a tennis video and then a short stand up comedy one too.
This alone is what sets the time for the day.

So I usually donate plasma twice a week. It’s a process whereby one donates blood that gets separated from the plasma and the blood gets put back into the body.
It’s for a good cause and in the meantime I get paid for it.
So upon checking my levels before the donation process, my blood pressure was too high. So normally they tell you to go sit for a couple minutes to initially have your blood pressure lowered, but mine was still too high and that was because I hadn’t taken my medication in two days. It’s amazing how much my Blood pressure rose in these two days.
If this would have happened 2 years ago, I would have been the most miserable individual you could ever find, because that meant I wouldn’t be able to even get out of bed. Man, my health was pretty bad back then.

So today I can’t donate plasma unless I take my meds again and here I am in Edina’s Target sitting by the window with my cup of white chocolate mocha just soaking up the little bit of sun left before possible snow might hit us on Thursday.
After I get my meds, I’m off to share more love by working at my part time landscaping job in Bloomington.

I’m happy about the chance I have in life again to just be honest with myself and affect those around me positively and lovingly.

Till next time

My 90 day Blueprint Journey

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything and there’s good reason.

I have been offered a couple of jobs. Landscaping, lawn mowing and handyman tasks. It has been great, but it took a while to juggle all this.
The blogs, youtube and Facebook had to take a back seat.

I have created a “My life” Worksheet that represents “Where I am right now” and “Where I want to be in 12 months”.

Next I am going to write “My ideal day”, “My ideal week”, “My ideal life in 90 days”

This is to hold myself accountable to you guys. Yes, some of it will not be accomplished within the expected timespan, but it will get done. The deadlines are just guidelines to keep me on par with my journey.

In the past I have made promises to people and it did not come into fruition. Those promises I made actually now came into fruition which means it took longer than expected. That is the side of me that gets exited, because only I can see the possibility of a positive outcome within the specific promise I’m making.

Finally I want to add. I’m happy to say that a big challenge for me was to see my kids. They have grown so much and I am glad that I will be seeing them very soon. Some kinks need to be worked through. That was certainly the biggest challenge as it was humbling to have not seen them in a while. As a dad I have made a commitment not just to myself, but to have my kids be reassured that I will never leave them.

My dad was murdered when I was only 6 years old so I used to have the excuse to say that I don’t know what it’s like to be a father just because I never had a dad to show me the way.

Well, this is my chance and I’m never going to throw it away.
Here I am MR. Challenge. Show me what you got.

Had too much fun at work.

Hi Accented Family

Yes, my weekend was full of fun at work. There’s never a dull moment there.

I decided to take my phone and shot a couple of clips to show you guys of the fun we had. Most of it was spontaneous so you can go ahead and enjoy.

My job entails taking kids with autism to wherever they need to go. The schedules are already written out in the morning, because they don’t like to deviate from it.
It is just something they like to stick to.

The spots we go to nowadays are the Mall of America and Sky Zone. It is just so much fun to be with them. Like I said, there’s never a dull moment. What’s interesting is that everything has to happen at a specific time like be at Sky Zone at 12:30pm and be at the Mall of America at a certain time.

It’s long hours but very much fun.

Here’s me and my co worker laughing and dancing.

The journey continues.

Hi Accented Family.

This past weekend was hectic, but good. I worked and by that I mean had fun.
I went to The Mall of America and went on the rides for free with my client.
For those who don’t know, my client has autism and it’s just a ton of fun taking her places. I also went to church and Sky Zone in Plymouth and yes, FUN FUN FUN!
I love my job and I can’t see myself doing anything else other that my online business.

This morning I woke up at 5am and got ready for the day. I remember struggling staying awake when my health was at its lowest; I could not get out of bed.
Anyway, I went to donate plasma this morning where I get paid to do it twice every week. It helps pay for gas which is sweet. I miss saying the word “petrol” instead of gas. LOL.
I used to do this when I was living out of my car. Good times I tell you.

I actually feel a bit lazy today. So I’m just going to take it easy and have fun watching tennis and comedy. Tomorrow I get paid and then it’s on with the money making strategies and planning.

Initially I wanted to make money to get out of this month to month living, but it gave me a new perspective in life. By focusing on improving myself, I sort of found out that making money became secondary.
Don’t get me wrong…money is still what I need to have to have an anxiety free existence. So for now it’s hasta luego.
