Be Happier at Work

I found a cool list of 11 Ways to Be Happier at Work. My favorite thing on the list is to do the thing you dread the most first. I love my job as a blogger, freelance writer and photographer very much, but even I sometimes get lazy and don't want to work. There are aspects of every job that some folks dread and for me it's editing photos. It bores me to tears...The faster I get that task over with the faster I can get back to the things in my job I love to do. Check out the list of 11 Ways to Be Happier at Work yourself and tell me what you think. Do you have another way to be happy at work that isn't on this list? Leave it in the comments below...

I Want Clocks to Not Matter


Today I cost my family money because I over slept. Basically, at my husband's job if you are late to work the day after a holiday you lose your holiday pay. I hit the snooze button one too many times and boom- he was late and the money was gone all because I couldn't get up on time....

I want to have a life where clocks don't matter. I want my husband and I to have enough money flowing to us freely, quickly and easily that we can sleep when we need sleep, eat when we need food, work when we want to work, do other activities when we get board and on and on we go...

I want to truly be a money magnet and use the law of attraction to set up a life of financial stability that doesn't rely on alarm clocks to boost my bank account. I want to have my work be as much fun as it is now and make my family enough money that my husband doesn't have to work in a job he doesn't like.

He has always said he loves to work and wouldn't mind working until the job is done but that the confines of a set schedule and clocking in and out are what drives him crazy.

What I do for a living has a deadline, but I make my own schedule. As a contracted writer and photographer I do have to get things done by a date, but I decide if I'm going to work on my articles or edit my photos in the middle of the night or early in the morning. Sure, if I'm photographing an event with a set time I have to be there at a set time, but I'm fortunate that my entire work life doesn't revolve around clocks. I want this freedom for my husband too!

My goal is to make it so that clocks are not the false god we have to worship in order for my husband to bring in income.

Thank you for the money constantly coming to me quickly and easily. In my daily life I am attracting abundance. I am a money magnet. I always have enough and am always attracting positivity and exciting adventures. I can afford to travel and do all the things I want to do daily.

The Prosperity Game - Day 121

rhode island 

We have been in Hawaii for a loooooooong time. I think now that the weather is getting warmer it's time to get back to our road trip. All the clothes, cars, miscellaneous goods we have used in Hawaii we will donate to charity and then we will hop a flight to Rhode Island to finish visiting all the states we were attempting to see. The last state we visited was Massachusetts so I think it's time for somewhere new.

As of today I'm two weeks sober so I won't be adding any drinking to the tab going forward, but that doesn't mean the fun stops!!!

The hard thing now is figuring out what to spend all this money on. My husband and I have to spend the entire amount that we receive each day in this game and we're learning how little we actually need to live out our dreams, feel prosperous and feel generous. The funniest thing is the more we are receiving the more we find ourselves just giving away the money. That's also very encouraging and exciting!

Even after the flight and hotel in Los Angeles (have to change planes and arrive in Rhode Island the next day) and all of our food, drinks, entertainment, etc... we will still have well over $118,000 and we will just give it away on a crowdfunding site again! We're already done saving for our retirement and have real estate properties we are going to use to keep money after the end of this year so, we have plenty of money to just give away!

Thank you for the money constantly coming to me quickly and easily. In my daily life I am attracting abundance. I am a money magnet. I always have enough and am always attracting positivity and exciting adventures. I can afford to travel and do all the things I want to do daily.

Prosperity Game Days 82-120

lots of money 

Once again it has been a loooooooong time since I've added an update to the spending of the money we are receiving daily. Just like before we have spent $24,000 a day on savings bonds for retirement.

As of today, my husband and I have $2,010,250 in Savings Bonds toward our retirement! With this we are done buying savings bonds because we feel that is the amount we wanted to save up prior to retirement and even at just 4% interest we will be earning more than $80,000 and have decided we can live off that :)


We spent $2,000 a day on food, entertainment, lodging, etc... On days 82-100 we gave the rest of the money away to folks attempting to live their dreams on miscellaneous crowdfunding websites. One days 100-120 we bought real estate! Lots of it- condos and small homes to rent out for investment purposes.

Worry Less and Giggle More


I love this idea - Worry less and giggle more. What a brilliant way to live, don't you think? I believe I should start doing this today!!!! They say that laughter is the best medicine for what ails you and I prefer to be a laughing soul than a depressed one. Perhaps laughter is, dare I say, a secret to happiness.

My challenge to you- if you find you are feeling low, find something to make you laugh as quickly as possible.
Write down your worry and then throw it away believing that it will take care of itself or that some other power will make it work out. If you can change your worry do so, if not, let it go and find a way to laugh!
