Today’s Saturday motivational is about the why. Why do you want to change, why do you want something different, why do you want to live? What is it that moves you? What drives you? This is about that deep desire that we each have inside of us it’s about pulling it out and doing something about it.

This week has been rough for me, I’ve just been feeling stuck. Stuck in my relationships, stuck in my finances, stuck in living the same way everyday and going nowhere, just spinning my wheels.

I had to look deep to find my desire again, to find my why. There are two major things I have always wanted in life, that was to write a book and to have a restaurant.

My why for starting this blog it’s cheaper than opening a restaurant and I still get to cook in the kitchen. I still get to have fun in the kitchen mixing different flavors together. I get to write whatever hits me. I will actually finish writing a story or my sister will kill me.

I’m in charge of my destiny, I’m fifty and I’ve found my why, I’ve found my desire.

So what’s your why, what’s your desire? Post in the comments and let me know

PS: I find all of my great motivational videos on YouTube by Mateusz M. He has some great works that really make you think and truly inspire you to want to be and do more.


What’s Your Why?


Finally got the new place set up and pretty much organized even though I’m sitting in my office surrounded by boxes and feeling like a hoarder (really have to stop watching that show). Don’t know if this place will be temporary for three months or will it be a permanent spot until next spring, regardless we are living out of boxes until we make that decision.

The one room I had to really set up was my kitchen and as you saw from my last post it’s pretty much a hallway, so I had to incorporate a few pieces reserved for the living room into the function of my kitchen.  Continue reading

I found this video for my Inspirational Saturday post and this one brought tears to my eyes and reminded me that sometimes I have to slow down and enjoy my life even more, especially now during this season of my life. Being off work due to ankle surgery, hassling with insurance company for my disability and having to move into a smaller place. All these things could get me down but I’ve been blessed and the next time it rains I’m going to go and get washed. Happy Saturday my friends, enjoy!

Moving Day & Starting Over

It’s moving day and my Internet is a bit spotty until next week. Finally got everything moved out of the upstairs apartment down to the basement apartment and it is going to be an adjustment regardless of how long I’m here.

The biggest adjustment is going to be cooking in a hallway called a kitchen, so I’m looking forward to that challenge.

So because of the packing, unpacking and the organizing going on around here I have decided to wait until things calm down next week and then post my birthday post and my recipe for my Mom’s Pineapple pie. Plus I have to try and make sure I get the steps down right because I cook like all the Richardson women by taste, sight and touch.

Be on the look out for a look back over my Fiftieth birthday and a few things I’ve learned along the way and how I’m starting all over again from the bottom up.

Anyone that knows me, knows that I am a preachers kid aka PK, and I have a set of beliefs that I try to live my life by. I haven’t always been this way it took some time and a whole lot of dark days but I do believe in God. So you will notice that I will make reference to my belief a lot of times and I’m not trying to preach to no one, I’m just writing what comes from my place in this life that it may touch someone else.

Today for Inspirational Saturday this video was posted on my FB page from GodVine and it really gave me an even clearer understanding about how prayer works. Even if you don’t see anything happening right then an there, there is a change going on and things will get more clear as you continue to pray. Enjoy and please let me know if this video has touched you in any way.

It Will Become Clear
