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.

Peace

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.

FREE BOOK PROMOTION !!! AUG 31-SEPT 4

Hi Accented family

Before I start today’s spontaneous blog, I’d like you to know that I have changed my free book promotion. It’s now on Friday August 31st – Monday September 4th.
My book is called ” Adult ADD/ADHD vs Society vs Me: Transcendentally present in the real world. Long title I know, but worth it.

I’ve been told quite a few times how weird I was. I’m so used to it, it doesn’t even feel weird. You could even say it’s normal to be weird.
Over the years I hear how funny I am, which is still me, but only with a different adjective this time. I’ve also been told how talented, creative and inspirational I am to others.
Well, now the adjective craze phase don’t seem so weird anymore. Instead, this makes me look normal. Sure, I interrupt you at any given chance when we have a conversation, laugh hysterically at a mundane thing or situation or walk away in the middle of a conversation, but that is what millions of other people do at some point in their lives. I just do it more often than them. LoL.

Luckilly, because I’ve learned about myself, I recognised some of these moments in time to correct it on the spot, but the effort that goes into it is tremendous at times.

I remember getting done singing at a concert in “Benjamin Wilson Ministries” church in Elsies River years ago, I had a fun chat with a friend and it went well, but I got so exited, I forgot I was actually in the middle of a conversation and ran away to another friend without realising I was chatting with this friend. I know this happened, because when I looked back over to my abandoned friend, she looked at me stunned and shrugged her shoulders like a girlfriend who was surprised that she got cheated on by another girl.
I couldn’t put it together, but years later it dawned on me that it must have been my ADHD.

Another incident happened when I was much younger than the experience I had in church. I had just learned how to do a backflip a few months before and I was exited to do it at every chance I got. A bunch of us had found an abandoned mattress in a different community called Clarke Estate. We dragged that mattress for two miles back to Elsies River to enhance our flipping experience. No pun intended there.
Along the way, we crossed paths with a friend of a friend, but as I was looking at him, the weirdest thing happened. Suddenly I was thinking of how focused I should be when doing my dismount from the mattress. My eyes started squinting and my face looked like I was so mad at this guy, he felt compelled to ask me why I was so mad at him. In fact, I did not even know him and here I am looking mad as hell at someone who knew nothing about me.

I couldn’t understand why he was so confused and irritated at me. I quickly had to think of something. My only response was, ” I don’t know, I had something in my eye.”, but he seemed like he believed me and that was that.

So, who and what really is considered weird. No one. We’re all prone to some form of abnormality and that makes each and everyone of us as normal as the word normal itself.

Update on my journey so far

Hi Accented Family

First of all, for those of you who saw this blog with the many spelling mistakes, my apologies. That’s what happens when you’re in a hurry. Lol

Here’s one without the spelling mistakes…hopefully.

It’s been a while since I’ve written down anything. So here goes; my Wednesday blog as promise.

Before I run off to work, here’s something to nibble on. This blog is about what I’ve accomplished so far and what I still need to work on.

One is definitely visiting my kids as I’ve been advised to focus on that. It’s been something I keep neglecting believe it or not. Watch my video to learn more about people with ADHD and relationships.

You see, I’ve been embarrassed about not seeing my kids, because I don’t want them to see their dad being homeless and jobless.

I thought that if I get my place and a job, I’ll feel more confident. Well, it took two extra months to get to where I’m at now.
So this month I’ll do some blogging and hopefully some video blogging to show you my progress.

Hasta luego Accented family.
