We all Bring Something to the Table

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! 🎉🎉

Deep Breath

I had to take a ⒹⒺⒺⓅ ⒷⓇⒺⒶⓉⒽ this morning.🤦‍♀️

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. 🤗

A ⒹⒺⒺⓅ ⒷⓇⒺⒶⓉⒽ and ᎶᏒᎪᏟᎬ can go a long way!

Take care of your Skin

You can change your hair color and length. 💇🏻‍♀️
You can change your eye color. 👀
You can straighten or replace your teeth. 😬
You can thicken or thin out your eyebrows. 🤨

The only thing we can’t change is our skin! We can’t replace it, and we can’t change the color or the shape. We must take care of it! 💯

Hydration, nutrition, and even gut health are all important to add to your skincare routine. Cleansers, moisturizers, and sunscreen matter! 💦

And ladies PLEASE take off your makeup and especially eye makeup each night before bed! Your skin needs the time of restoration during the night, and your sheets will be cleaner! 😍

Who are you Surrounded By?

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!

You are Enough

Maybe the only reason you think you’re not good enough is because you’re letting other people define your worth.

❌ NO MORE ❌

You are more than enough.
You always have been.
You’ve just been lost for a little while.
Welcome back.

YOU are beautifully & wonderfully made.
You’re not perfect.. but who is?

Stop letting people define you.
Stop letting people determine your worth.
Stop people pleasing.
Let that weight off your shoulders.
Just love them. Everybody. Always.

Be undeniably Y O U
Be uniquely Y O U

God has made beautiful things…and He also made you. ❤️

Mondays

It is Monday! The start of a new week. How you start your week will determine how you end your week. 🤔

If you make up your mind for it to be a great week, then it will be! 😍

If you are determined to pursue your goals, then set them and go after them. 💪

We don’t need a new year or even a new month to start over, God gives us Mondays each week!💯

Roaming

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? 💵🤔

Random Acts of Kindness Day

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. 🌞🤗🥰

I Sell Things

I sell things…. There, I said it.

We’ve made sales out to be such a dirty industry. But I read an incredible sentence….. “Selling is simply listening.”

When i read that from a friend, it all clicked in my head.

Selling is simply listening.

It’s listening to what someone needs.
Listening to their dreams.
Listening to what they want.

And then asking myself if that’s a need I can meet with the resources I have.

I listen to stories every single day. I get texts and messages from countless people who share their stories with me…..

•The story of a mom who feels like she lost herself in pregnancy and just wants to feel like herself in her skin again.

•The story of a college student who wants to graduate debt free because she’s seen her parents struggle and she wants more for her future.

•The story of someone who is struggling to feel better after a cancer battle. A fertility battle. An emotional battle. A weight battle… the list goes on.

•The story of a wife who has a crazy dream to retire her hardworking husband and I know that I can help her bring him home.

I’m a professional listener.

Many times, I am able to join and even change (for the better!) the story of the person I’m listening to. Sometimes I can’t.

But most of the time, I listen, I share, we lock arms—and lives get changed.

You earn the right to hear someone’s story every time you make the choice to tell yours!

So next time you write someone off because “they sell something” maybe just try telling them your story. See what pieces you can fit together.

Because absolutely everyone deserves to be heard.

And who knows—maybe, they just might be able to change your life. 🙌🏼 #ChooseJoy
