Ebay continued...Don't know how to feel...& a life update

Ok so today I was wondering about this one guy that bought a lot of shirts from me a few months ago. Anyways I looked up his account and of course what I thought was happening is happening. So he bought my shirt so he could sell them him self. So I don't know how to feel about that...I guess it's my fault that I priced my stuff too cheap to where he saw he could take advantage of that. But then I think well I'm still glad I had a good day from him. So he bought like 17 shirts from me for over 200 and he's selling them for twice he paid from me. I can't be mad at him it's my fault. Well because of that I now have changed all my listings to buy it now and no more haggling if they want it they will pay the price I list on there. There is this other guy that sells ties and he does the same thing. I know about this other guy that sell shoes...same thing. So I changed all my fixed listing to buy it nows. I hope that helps me out. I will keep an eye out to see if that helps my sells. Also I'm going on a cruise with my mom again. This time we are going to the Bahamas. Why does that always make me want to sing kokomo by the beach boys? I love that song, dude! I'm so happy that God is going to let me take my mom on a nice long vacation. She deserves it. Back to the ebay thing, can you believe that guy even stole one of my pix to put in his ad? Maybe that's what I'm most mad about. IDK. Or maybe I'm mad because I work so hard to put up nice pix and price my stuff to sell and I saw his ads and they look like shit but people at buying it a twice the price with no effort for him. Yeah, that is it. Well I guess ounce again it's my fault because I have not advertised on my YT channel and taken advantage of the people I have access to... I don't know. Me watching all these YT people makes me want to get back on YT and document all these shenanigans since I became a re-seller. Well shall see...


TTYL,

One Year Today...

So one year today I started a new part of my life. I became a seller on E bay. It has taught me so much. I started because I saw this lady on YouTube talk about how in one year full time reselling on E bay she sold more than 100K. That sounded amazing to me. I thought I can be a re-seller. I did it and now it's a thing I do part time. I love things about it. I do have to admit that not all of it fun. I really dislike to list things but if I don't list I make no money so a year later I'm still struggling to to post on a daily. I have to say I have learned so much. One of my goals was to pay off credit card debt. And I have to say that I have paid one credit card which I though I was going to be a slave to for the rest of my life. And I did it with this extra money from E bay. I'm an going to continue because I have more debt unfortunately. You know what I really like about this reselling thing? Shopping! I love shopping. And with this part time hustle that part is about 50%. And it keeps me busy. I hope that this part time thing can continue to help me pay off stuff. Ultimate goal would be to use this vehicle to get out of debt completely. What a day that would be, OMG. The funny thing is that I had always thought in the back of my mind that selling on E bay would be too hard or complicated. But on the contrary it's fun and it's super easy. To tell you the truth I think that once you learn how to do this you could potentially always work. I think it's since it's not a hard job when I come up for retirement I think I would still do this because it's so easy. Any then I also think about people who are out of a job and what this skill could bring people. The potential to make a lot of money is there you just have to learn it and be committed to listing everyday and finding a good place to source from and be honest with your customers. It's easy money. I definitely wish I had started doing this a LONG time ago. If I had maybe I wouldn't have debt.  Well, you live and you learn, right?

Houston Proud!!!

So as you may have seen all over the new this week, we were hit by a crazy amount of water around this time last week. It just reminded me of why I fell in love with this city. The kindness of people. So in 1995 my mom and my brother and I were on our way to one of the most important interviews in my life. The interview to get my residency card (green card). So if you don't how important that is, it basically is the reason I was able to become a citizen and be able to live in this country. So we were going down the road and we got a flat tire. So my brother looked in the trunk and could not find a tire iron. So we were stranded with an impending super important interview that was to decided weather or not I was going to be able to stay in this country. So what happened? The sweet people of Houston came through. About three people pulled over to help us. They provided the tire iron my brother needed to change the tire and I got to become a resident. That's the way the people of  Houston are. They pull together! And that's why I love Houston and even though I was not born here I was raised here, have spent most of my life here and I'm proud to be a Houstonian! This will only make us stronger!
 Check out the little river across the street...Thank the Lord Jesus it did not get in the house.

Stopping the cycle...

So there isn't anything I believe in more than the that God has his plans. I have seen in in my life so many many times, I write about it all the time. These past few years his plan in my life was let me discover the bigger picture and to come to terms with his plan for my life. Part of that has already happened. I read a book once ( I forgot the name of it,Sorry ) that said that if you don't discover your own issues and over come them they will keep on repeating the same things over and over again. It's not until you come to terms with the pain about what happened then your life with keep on taking that same path. Sometimes it's a stand still. For me that was what happening. I was choosing the wrong people because I didn't see my own value. Yes I grew up with no Dad because he didn't want to acknowledge I was his kid. My mom was always telling my I was special but I guess maybe I didn't believe it. As time has gone on and I have matured I have come to realize that my mom was right. Not to be so stuck up but I'm a really good friend to people I have a tight network of people that I have in my life and I would do anything for. For a while now I have been on this hunt  to "heal" my own heart or soul. To come to terms with some of the stuff that was holding me hostage. I wasn't making good decisions in my love life. Frankly at first it was because I didn't know something was wrong. I didn't know why I always had the same thing happen. Then it was because I didn't know how to fix it. I have come to terms with so much. I'm moving forward and so happy with that part of my life now. I feel like now I can evaluate and see from far away the red flags so much faster now. It's frankly I wish I would have has this skill in my 20's. But God has his plan and all I have to do is to trust that it's way better than anything I could ever come up with. I guess what I'm saying is that I feel ready for the next part of my life. The part where he guides me to tell me what it is I'm supposed to be doing with my life. I wonder how many books I'm gonna have to read to figure that out...lol.

A thought and a prayer...

So as I get older and older ( last month I turned 37) I'm in this faise of my life where I want to make sence of it all. Yesterday I had a thought...I saw this lady who was clearly sick, cancer most likely. Her family was well off or at least way better off then my family. I thought man I bet she and her family would be so happy to give every penny they had to make this lady healthy again. And then I think Im lucky I'm healthy and I'm lucky my mom is healthy...Sometimes its takes putting your self in someone else's shoes to get things into perspective. Im always complaining about my job when I at least have a job. Some people don't have that. I'm complaining about how I dont have money to buy the stuff I want but in reality I have way more stuff in my house I don't use or will ever use. After seeing that lady it reminds me to take advantage that in young and healthy still. I wanted to ask her if she regreted anything...I wanted to ask her if she wanted to do stuff off her list...but I didn't. It would have been inappropriate. So now my only option is to pray for her and her family. So God if you are out there, please make this lady healthy again or at least if this how you'll take her, let her go without pain or regrets, thank you.

Merry Christimas!! and my year end review...

Ok so here is the my year end review....what was this year about? what what have a learned? what will I change about myself? what can help others do the same?...
Well for one is that I have a great life...try to concentrate on the good things. Like that I have a great network of people that love me. That my friends are amazing! Maria and Judy are my sisters as well as Claudia and Melissa. That I'm blessed to have all of them in my life.We don't stay in constant contact necessarily but when we do communicate it's like no time has gone on. We start fresh every time. Don't take for granted that you work or where you work. So this we moved from branch...I miss it. I can't go get a snack when I want to anymore! So that is the only thing that will stay the same is that time will continue and change. Its cool I'm growing. That it's ok to try something new, especially if it will benefit your family (ebay). I'm gonna keep going with that because my plan is to get out of debt and to continue my school. I have wasted too much time already. It's time to finish what I started.  I feel like next year I want to go back to school and start a new hobby like dance or something. I'm not sure we shall see... But this year was cool I learned a lot. I took my mom on a cruise and she LOVED it. I liked that because that shows her how much I love her and appreciate her. Hopefully I can take her on a cruise in 2017 as well but this time I want to take her on a 7 day. That would be awesome. So there wasn't any epiphany this year just more of the same. But I'm happy, that I'm health and that my mom is healthy and that maybe soon my house will be filled with more people and family.

My theme song....
