Abide – A Christian Way to Meditate

I fell in love with meditating sometime ago and I have not looked back since. The benefits of meditating regularly are just too numerous to mention. Being still has changed my life for the better, which is why I find the time to do just that every day. I have been listening to many guided meditations on YouTube and most of them are great. I found them useful but I wanted more. While browsing the App Store, I found the Abide App – A Christian Way to Meditate and I quickly downloaded. I was lucky enough to get a free trial for a week and that gave me time to see if I really liked it.

When it comes to Apps, I like getting them for free like many other people, so deciding to keep this Abide App and pay a monthly fee tells you how much I like the App. It is the only App on my iPhone I pay for. The picture below best describes how I feel about this Christian Meditation App.

Abide – A Christian Way to Mediate

For those who have never heard of the Abide App, it is a christian guided mediation and daily prayer App. The App comes with daily meditation, bedtime stories to hep you fall asleep soundly, various meditations for different topics and more. I am currently enjoying the guided mediations for women and it has already changed my wellbeing and whole life for the better. I wonder how I am only just finding out about this amazing App.

If you want to try out this mediation App, a quick search on your App Store should do. You should be able to get a free trial for a week like I did and that will give you time to browse the App and see if it is what you would like. The monthly fee for the basic package is only £3.99 per month as at today. So it is not too pricey.

Since I tried this App, I have not had the desire to go back to listening to the guided meditations on Youtube. This App is worth every penny and I highly recommend it to anyone in search of  christian guided meditation App. You need to try Abide. It may be all you need.

Self employment – Charge what you deserve

I have been self employed for about 6 years now and I have seen it all. The clients that never pay up until you chase them and those that wait until the very last day to pay. I have seen clients that want all for nothing. They are happy to pay you peanuts and keep all the profits for themselves. Earning money as a self employed person is hard work. Don’t believe the stories that tell you it is easy to earn a living from home because it is far from easy. Trust me, I have 6 plus years worth of experience to know that being a self employed person, running your own business from home is hard. Which is why you should charge what you deserve.

My reason for doing this

I found myself working from home full-time after my twins were born. Going back to my old job was not an option. I hated it and the commute and income won’t be worth the hassle at all, so I ended up focusing on making money online. It worked! I started earning a full time living wage from this blog and my freelance jobs (mainly copywriting and blogger outreach). It wasn’t easy. I had to work every free hour I got and I hardly slept all those years, but the money started coming in.

It got easier as the twins got older and started pre school and now primary school. I have more free time to focus on my hustle and even throw in studying for a whole new degree. However, the journey has been a rollercoaster ride and has taught me a lot. What kept me going all these years was my “why”. To be a happy self employed person, you have to have a “why” because you will need to remember the reason when the days get tough.


Which is why I charge what I deserve

I love what I do and the opportunities it brings are too numerous to mention but I also have my own fair share of dealing with people who don’t want to pay the right amount for what they want. A really funny email came in yesterday and it was the lowest fee I have ever been offered and it make me giggle. Obviously I didn’t bother replying but I am pleased with how far I have come because on a good day I would have been fuming at the audacity of the email.

My rates are my rates. I charge what I deserve and I don’t apologise for it. I believe there is value in my work and I would now let anyone take advantage of me by accepting low fees just because that is what they are willing to pay. The first rule when it comes to self employment or running your business is to charge what you deserve. There is enough to go around for everyone if people stop being greedy and I believe to unblock the flow of abundance, we need to charge the right amount of money. There will always be people who will happily pay your rates once you are comfortable asking for it.

When it comes to self employment, the pros outweigh the cons massively for me. Which is why I am still doing what I do full-time for now. It is great to be able to work from home. I won’t charge that for anything now. Are you self employed? Do you feel you charge what you deserve? Do drop your comments in the comment section below.
