ricardog started this conversation
Living in Austin, Texas for more than 25 years. Originally from Abilene, Texas. My philosophy is to live life to the fullest and I try to do something new everyday. Never be afraid of doing what is right for your life.

One of the biggest things I enjoy doing is traveling. My recent adventure was going to the state of Colorado. It is breath taking their. With it's beauty and profound natural life.

The reason for my blog in Aidpage, is to help other with the knowledge that I have developed from all my life experiences. Going up and down the latter, gone from great credit to bad credit, dealt with people differences, built small business, coach people in being successful, and have given spiritual counseling. Because of all of this, I want to share my knowledge and hopefully help people grow.

Even tho, life seems unfair at time. There is always a different direction that you can take. But sometimes you can't see, you need to get someone to open up your eyes. Let me help.

Hmm, I glad you are taking action and trying to do something to make things right for you and your son's. That is good, not to many people are doing what you are doing.

It looks like you are going the right direction even if it feels like you are not. Day by day, life is a challenge, I know you can do it. 

Just keep trying. Let me do a little thinking and see what I can come up with.

Okay, just give me more information, you said that you are looking for help for a deposit. What are you doing in your life to get that.

Maybe by explain more, we can see where the help is needed.

Let me tell you about jail and bills. No bill collector will take you to jail. This will not happen. Let me tell you why. It will take $5,000 (or around that amount) for them to place a court order to get you to jail. Now, think about this. If you owe them like $500.00. Do you think a company will pay 5k to get you to jail on 500.00 that you owe. That is cost effective for the company. If they did that to everyone who owes that company. The company would go broke.

NOw, look at the form letter that you got. That's right, form letter. It is a mind way of making you worry and the more you worry the more they think you will give up.... 

Fight! fight for your right. Yell at them. Tell them to leave you a lone. Trust me, they have more people on there plates. Look at the letter, listen to the phone message. Think of what they are really trying say. Act but don't react right away. 

 

You can fix this and you can get it right. Just fight.....

, thank u for ur words, they ring so true, my son and daughter and i lost my husbands soc sec after chad turned 18, and when bridgette turned 17 and against my advice decided to get married, now shes still 17 and i cant get it back for her, and i got another mouth to feed, i am currently waiting on my highest ranking caz i lost the alot of use in my rt leg due to some action in dessert storm, bridgettes ex isnt in the babies life, its like he dont want the baby if she aint with him, its an odd situation, now i am waiting on my settlement from the military since i lost most the use of my rt leg and destroyed the nerves in in in combat which was suppose to be a safe zone, but there are no safe zones in the dessert, but some my fellow soldiers wait years as a matter of fact, they say its worse now since the recession, but i am hanging in there......... but its hard not to get those bills paid when they threaten u with jail, then that ex hubby of mine just about destroyed, in fact he did destroy my credit, but i am gonna keep trying to save the money and get back to my own house and try to fix it up, but i cant possibly see how the kids will make it without me if i am in jail from not paying bills, i checked on a bankruptcy lawyer they wanted 1750 dollars to file that for me, and everything id just a bunch of bull right now, feel neglected from the career and the nation i served, and my other fall back is cosmetology but when u got the leg disability the pain makes u shake and u cant cut people hair like that, my granmas check is all spent on her medicine and lights and water as u say, but i am sure that one day i will be straightened up enough to do what i need to do, until then its just killing me caz the money i had saved went to chads doctor bills after he flipped his car 6 times last year and he didnt have any medical insurance and they had to put his head back together, but its fustrating if just for a lil while, and being in this situation has almost took the fight out of me, but i am trying to hang in there and keep doing what i think is right..................thanks for the comment

That is a good question and I've asked my self that many times and in many stages in my life. But what really stick is to have a good full time working job from home. To be able to help people more on information and give them direction. To be able to get what I want without asking for it. I guess just to have it my way....

True but God is the one who is showing me and telling what to say. You just don't know it or you don't want to see it.

What ever you do and say. God is the one who is putting the words in your mouth... Remember when you don't see the God in a person, it's because you don't want to believe. 

Until you do, that is when God is going to bless you.

That is nice what you do, but everything you said God name or words is not in it. For with out God you or I can't do anything. Everything is given to you from God. Power to go rich , Power , health to work a job. Remember God is always first in everything you or I do. Give thanks to the lord. bobo1
