88 cents

88 Cents : From Forks To Fitness

Real talk. If you don’t want to get all emo with me, just keep on scrolling. I’m having a moment.

My Beachbody paycheck for next week is $0.88 more than my paycheck from my full-time job of 9 years (11 years, if you count the years of volunteer work before being hired!). 88 cents seems so little in my hand here, but it’s so much to us.

I’ve worked that job for more hours than I could even calculate. I worked that job from my laptop when I was in labor with both boys. I’ve continued to work that job even though we’ve been on a wage freeze for years. I’ve lost tears and sleep to that job. It’s been my job and it’s provided for us. For that, I am thankful.

But this is 88 cents closer to retiring my husband and bringing him home. It’s 88 cents closer to achieving some of our biggest goals. It’s 88 cents closer to the life we’ve chosen to DESIGN for ourselves now. It’s 88 cents of control WE have back in our lives.

And that whole paycheck? That check is going to deposit the day before we leave for an all-inclusive [earned!] free cruise from Beachbody next week. A week of family time in the middle of sunny nowhere. Bring it on.

I work this business part-time, truly changing lives of others for the better and brought to you from the comfiest chair in my warm house.

Do whatever makes you happy. Do whatever pushes you toward YOUR goals in life. And by all means, take a damn chance. Stop whining and wishing, and just do something about it.

“Nothing changes, if nothing changes.”

    This post got my attention for two reasons…it was posted on my son’s 8th birthday, March 3rd…and I kept reading about 88 cents…the numbers is what got my attention because -ok, this is silly but…-I have believed my whole life that my angels guide me one way or another and when my kids were born and I was too busy being a mom, all I could notice was little signs, especially numbers, and that’s when I thought I knew my guides or my guardian angel(s) were watching over me and sending me signs…I especially like Doreen Virtue’s explanation on numbers. So…to get to the point 88 means -in angel messages- it says
    “this is a very auspicious and favorable sign about your finances. Your actions, prayers, visualizations, and manifestation work have resulted in a large inflow of abundance. Open your arms and receive!” – This is from Doreen’s angel number app. I know it might sound silly, but I just know you are not only .88 cents closer to your dreams, God is watching over you and He will turn your life around. Keep up the good work!

      In fact, if you look up the number 3 or 33 which is when you posted (March 3rd) and it says you have a clear and strong connection with an ascended master (for example Jesus), and he has answered your call and your prayer. They’re helping you with your present situation. Ok, I’m sorry, I also had a moment here…I hope it didn’t bother you.
