Dream Big!

Ok, so I think I am getting the hint, Dream Big!

~What you think about, you speak about, you bring about

~10X Everything in your life that you want more of

~Dream Big because God has Big plans for you

Basically, God is telling me to keep dreaming big, thinking big, speaking big, and He will help to bring about Big changes. Ok, ok, but man oh man if there wasn’t some 5’6″ brunette standing in my way, I could do it (that’s me).  I might be alone in this but I am always standing in my own way.  I know I should do X or if I’m listening to Grant Cardone, I should do X then 10X it or 100X it. Often times, I think about what I should be doing then come home tired, but on Netflix and stress about how I’m not doing what I should be doing because I’m tired so it’s okay if I binge watch a weird history show for the next 5 hours then go to bed late and wake up tired.  Actually writing down what I do some nights makes me want to get up and slap myself across the face.

We are only given one life and it’s up to us to live that life to the fullest. We don’t do everything perfectly and yes it has ups and downs but we have to keep pushing forward, because you only get one shot. You only get one opportunity to things right and wrong. You only have this one life for better or worse. Honestly, right now, I want to ask the inventor of Netflix why they had to do this to me!, not really, you’re awesome and I’m the one who needs to get a grip. I abused the gift of Netflix streaming and turned it into a vice (binge watching shows for 5 hours definitely qualifies as a vice).  So, from now on, I am going to STOP my binge watching and focus my energy into something positive, like writing.  No one may read my posts but if one person reads this and makes a positive change in their life, then well that my friends is called AMAZING! Sitting on my sofa was not changing the world, it was not adding anything positive to my life (besides adding to my waistline).

So here’s to making changes big or small, that are positive and life giving.

The biggest secret in cleaning

Most of my friends know that I am a clean Freak. I love to walk into my apartment and see everything nice and tidy. I also love that feeling I get after a great deep cleaning. Some people use sage to clear out the unwanted spirits, I use my steam cleaner.

This summer (2017), my friend Xavier told me about this steam cleaner and my life has never been the same (or cleaner) since. I told him I use a steamer for my clothes, instead of an iron. ‘ A steamer?’ he said, and then suggested that I purchase a McCulloch (no endorsements) steam cleaner.  He swore by this product as the end all, be all of cleaners. He bragged about the many attachments and how he used it on everything in his house.

Well what was a neat freak to do? I hopped on Amazon and bought myself a Mcculloch steam cleaner. It arrived in a few days and away I went.

This is AMAZING!

Seriously! amazing…it’s super easy to use and even comes with it’s own cute little funnel. I bought some distilled water (as recommended) and went to work.

I have faux hard word floors in 90% of my apartment and this thing makes them shine. I also have a glass shower with the nasty water marks that accumulate over time. A his and her sink and a guest bath.  All of this would’ve normally required many different cleaning solutions, mops, sponges, etc… No more! I use the different attachments depending on what I’m cleaning and the results are remarkable.

Most importantly, I love not using cleaning products. I have been using essential oils more and more to avoid the harsh chemicals. I save on not using all of the cleaning products. #savingmoney . I’m a frugal person, so it was a big investment, but at the end of the day, I’ve been super happy with this purchase. I’d have to sit down and calculate how much I’ll save in the course of the mcculloch’s life.

Draw-backs

Some of the attachments produce this ear piercing sound. I pull out my noise cancelling headphones and move on with my cleaning.

Positive- points

Unlike swiffers in which you have to buy and buy the cleaning cloths, the Mcculloch cleaner comes with pads that you can wash in the washing machine.

The attachments are easy to use and easy to store.

It’s small and easy to store.

Very easy to use and effective.

The leftover water can be poured down the drain and I don’t feel guilty about polluting the water.

Overall, the Mcculloch steam cleaner is a great product and I love using it.  In fact, I used it today (hence the post) and am reveling in the cleanliness of my home.
