When you’re a part of a family, or a tribe, you bring a talent to the table, and so do the others! I am confident in what I have to offer to the group, AND I recognize my limitations…most of the time!
Right now, I wish John was home from school. I need his “lego brain” and gentle hands right now. He would be able figure out how to get the drawer off the frame so I could get the blue tape off! He would be gentle to not break anything, but persistent to get it done.❤
Sometimes it’s the little things that become big in a time of frustration, but working together they can be solved!🤗
Also, shout out to Lowe’s! All appliances are basically on backorder right now. We thought we were going to get call on October 1st to give us a date of delivery in the next 2 weeks. Instead, I got a call last night that delivery would come today! 🎉🎉
When plans don’t go correctly, or another’s lack or delay of decision creates chaos for your morning, its easy to say the first thing that comes to mind. But those words are not always useful or helpful to the situation. 🤷♀️
School was canceled this morning due to potential flooding from Tropical Storm Beta…it was canceled after I had already dropped off the boys at school. It would be easy to become a keyboard warrior and blast the district for it’s lack of early action, but those words from me would not be useful or helpful. Instead, I am thankful that we are now all home safe and dry, and school will continue online. 🤗

Woah!!! Insane reality by my friend! 👇🏽👇🏽 ”I just graduated college with $100,000 in debt”, but can’t get a job that remotely pays my debt… yeah, people clap, celebrate, and even hug you.
“I just got a loan for $400,000 to buy my first home”, that you really can’t afford, yeah people clap, celebrate, and even hug you.
“I just got a loan for $40,000 for a new car”, drive off the lot and the value decreases $10,000…yeah people clap celebrate and even hug you.
That’s $540,000 in total debt most people are living in (add a few hundred thousand for those living in Southern California), but they are feeling good about it because they are being celebrated for it.
Now, go tell those same people you invested a couple hundred dollars to start your own business…
“Whoa, are you sure?” ◀️ “What are you going to do if it doesn’t work?”◀️ “Umm.. I don’t think those things really work”◀️ “Do you think you can get your money back?”◀️ “I don’t believe in those things (i.e i don’t believe in you)!” ◀️
🦀 Picture a bucket full of crabs with no lid… the crabs never escape the bucket. The moment a crab tries to get out of the bucket, the other crabs pull it back down.
Pay attention to who you are surrounding yourself with and who is speaking into your life!!!
I jumped out of the bucket. I grabbed as many people that would hold on and took them with me! We are a tribe over 60 strong and we’ve never looked back.
▶️I’m sure! ▶️The products speak for themselves. ▶️Ive built a residual income ▶️my business of free to join and free to run! ▶️believing in MYSELF was all it took! . . .
Persistence pays off when you are truly going after your goals! 💯
We all have internal conversations, arguments really, where we constantly question our ability, our worth, or our knowledge. However, when we put the dialogue aside and do the work, that’s when we are unstoppable. 💪
Roaming…. Do you remember when cell phones came out? Living in Texas, I was happy with my plan that covered the entire state. In other words, as long as I stayed in Texas, I had “free” calls, but if I left the state, it was changed to ROAMING and I was charged a premium!
This still applies to my life – ROAMING costs a premium! 🙄💲 When I roam away from God, my life gets hard! 🤦♀️ When I roam away from my routine in business, the premium cost is high with a lack of income. 💲 When I roam away from my personal relationships, the cost is encouragement or even personal development. 🤗 Roaming away from my weightloss goals, the premium cost is pounds or inches. 🙄
ROAMING costs you a premium in your life. Are you willing to pay the price? 💵🤔
Social media is a tough place to participate in daily. 🤷🏻♀️
It’s a place where people share through the lens of love and kindness, but also through the lens of fear and negativity. We have to choose how we will participate…which lens will we use? 🤔
We have to not only filter what we post, but filter out the negativity and fear of others. It is an influence to our daily mental grind and actions towards others.
Today is Random Acts of Kindness today. Do something kind for a stranger. Do something kind for a friend. Do something kind for a family member. Pay for the prison behind you in the drive through. Not going out today? Send a note in the mail or through messenger to brighten a friend’s day. Big or small, the act is never wasted. 🌞🤗🥰
