  • Keeping in Real

    Posted on Tuesday, October 26, 2010

    I have been a wee bit MIA. The last month has been a bit eye opening for me. I work in an industry where I have the privileged of lifting women up, helping them to build a business and create sustainable income for them and their families. I use a blog, social media and many other online avenues to promote.

    I was thrown off when a friend of mine said to me the reason it took me so long to decided to work with you is - “I can’t be like you....always happy and positive.” Total brick to the head. Yes we want our online presence to be positive but are we creating an expectation of impossible perfection. I have not until this week put only positive lines out there....well thanks to my fabulously wise friend Brandy - we are now keeping it real.

    Blessing in disguise, admitting out loud to flaws has done some amazing things. I own it, I accept it and you know what I AM HUMAN and NOT PERFECT!

    Day 1 - I have something living in my fridge and it is not a science project.
    Day 2 - I got a ticket for not stopping long enough at a right hand red light turn....and forgot to pay it.
    Day 3 - I always try to include everyone and really hurt when not included or someone close to me is left out.
    Day 4 - after a round of a prescription drugs this year I have a terrible skin discoloration on my face - very self conscious about it and do everything to cover it up. ( wow that was hard to post )

    They go on and every day I will post a keeping it real...I know I am not the only one who feels this way and I think as women we need to keep it real and not fall into the disease called perfection.

    Posted on Friday, July 23, 2010

    Just what the Dr. ordered a 1 week vacation in Mexico with my family. A week of the beach, pool, reading and relaxing is exactly what I needed to recharge my batteries.
    [Link Removed] - the staff was incredible and always said can I get my lady a drink....I think I could get use to that all the time.

    I have revamped my blog I am super excited about the features I learned to add on the right. Thanks Linda for unlocking the mystery for me. I am so very thankful for the things I learn on Fab 40 and for all the women willing to share there talents.

    Cheers to a castle a beach a book and a blog!
