For a brief moment yesterday I had considered going back into the corporate world.ย  It was a very brief moment!ย 

For a brief moment yesterday I had considered going back into the corporate world.ย ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
It was a very brief moment!ย โ˜๏ธ
Something was dangled in front of me and for a moment my mind wandered.
But then…..
.
.
.
๐Ÿ—ฏ๏ธI asked myself was I willing to give up my time freedom?
๐Ÿ’ธWas I willing to fork over a lot of money for help with my son?
โ˜น๏ธWas I willing to give up doing what I love to do?
๐Ÿ™„Was I willing to line the pockets of someone else instead of me?

๐Ÿ™ŒAt the age of 53 I wish I understood what all this represented years ago!

๐Ÿ˜ฎMaybe I wouldn’t have spent 8 years driving 60 miles a day, paying over $100 a week for day care, just to break even every month after bills.

๐Ÿ˜ทMaybe I wouldn’t have been so stressed out to have made myself physically sick and become obese!

๐Ÿ˜ญMaybe I would have been able to be there more for my kids when they needed me!

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸณMaybe I wouldn’t have spent many years waiting tables and working double shifts just to make ends meet while at the same time missing out on some precious mommy moments.

๐Ÿ‘€Looking back though I can say I am grateful for the opportunities! I grew as an individual with each experience, and discovered some new passions!
I was able to help a lot of people something I am passionate about doing!

๐Ÿค”However, I honestly don’t know how I did it. For 8 years, The 60 miles a day commute alone sucked! I was in my car more hours in a day than I was at home!

โœจNow my days are not dictated by a time clock or supervisor! They are
– On My terms
– I drive when I want to
– I have time now to take care of me
– I am healthier
– I am still helping others
– I am always available for my kids now
– I no longer break even in the bank every monthโฌ†๏ธ
– I get to enjoy being me

No I am not retired!
๐Ÿ’ƒI chose to live a life that that I design!!

My Business has Changed and I am no longer with Team Beachbody

As most of you may know, I have spent the last 3 years pouring my heartย โค๏ธand soul into my business.
Being part of Team Beachbody Not only turned my life around mentally and physically, but allowed me to continue to be a full time stay home mom to my CJ!ย ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ
Which I am more than GRATEFUL for๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

๐Ÿงย More importantly, I made some AMAZINGย friends,ย ๐Ÿ‘ญย and reconnected with old friends that I might not have! It also taught me so much not only about myself but about “TRUE” leadership, TEAM building and what is required to build a very SUCCESSFUL team!!
๐Ÿ“ฃHowever, I have decided it’s time for me to move onย ๐Ÿšถโ€โ™€๏ธย to some NEW, BIGGER ADVENTURES!!

This was a very difficult decision! However one that I needed to make for my family and my future

The reason I chose this new adventure is because after years with focusing on nutrition and exercise to myย  customers, fans, and followers,ย I learned from them that there was still something missingย in their health journeys; as well as in mine! After careful consideration and significant research I found what I was looking for to help them with TOTAL HEALTH!

THANK YOU ๐Ÿ˜˜ย from the bottom of my heart to all of my Facebook friends, family and customers that supported me through these years and this journey!ย ๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸปYou are appreciated more than you know๐Ÿ’š

๐Ÿ˜ย I am SUPER excited for what is next๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
๐Ÿ˜This is something SOOOOOOOO big that it’s going to completely change the game for so many moms and families everywhere!ย ๐ŸŒŽย ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

Choice, Chance, Change

Change, transformation, alteration what ever you what to call it , it is hard! It doesn’t matter what, or how, or even why; change is hard.

ย 
So many people resist change for many reasons!
ย 
Fear
Unknown
Lack of knowledge
ย 
The the thought of the word can make some of us literally physically ill.
ย 
Ugg Listen, I am not knew to change. I have been through many changes in my life.
ย 
I was a young mom and military spouse moving every few years,
Divorcee,ย single mom, a mom to a child with Down syndrome, Full time career woman, to a work at home mom.
Those are just to name a few! I have seen my share of change and I can promise you that none of them came easy!!
ย 
Change is inevitable, we all go through it but we are creatures of habit ! But, we are also creatures of change and adaptation.
ย 
Our habits are created in our brains, and our brains are constantly changing in response to our changing environment. Our adaptability is the secret to our success as a species.
So what is it that makes change a little easier for some than others. Some are able to harness adaptability and use towards something positive, to make those choices, those decisions, of how we want things to be; and who we want to be in this thing we called life.
ย 
You have a lot more power to become the person you want to be more than you might think. You are not predetermined by external environments, nor by the genes that created you . The secret is to learn to retrain your brain, yup, retrain those habits!!
ย 
I am not expert, therapist, or psychologist ,ย  and I have always found it difficult to deal with change. I am speaking the heart here because change is weighing heavy on my heart tonight.ย 
ย 
As much as I wanted to think of myself as a flexible go with the flow kind of person, It never went with out internal struggles. Aside from my OCD, I like to be in control of my situations!
I like to know where I am, what Iโ€™m doing, where Iโ€™m going. I like to have things layed out in black and white on my many lists of to-dos, and ideas.ย  Basically having a plan and being prepared I minimize the level of uncertainty in my life. Less uncertainty, less stress right?
ย 
My discomfort around uncertainty means I am usually very in-decisive.ย  ย In some ways this has been beneficial;ย  for example, itโ€™s allowed me to take my time making the right decision on hard choices of change!!ย ย In other ways, itโ€™s been a disadvantage, especially when it does take a long time for me to make those changes, those decisions. I see others in places where I would have been had I not made the decisions sooner.
ย 
In the past when life threw me curve balls of change, It left me feeling uncertain!ย  I had to do whatever I needed to do to regain my sense of control.ย  Keeping my options open or โ€œgoing with the flowโ€ provoked feelings of restlessness, insecurities, and eventually a whole lot of stress!

My relationship with change, took a indisputable turn three years ago whenย  I embarked on the adventures of a home based business.
Some people thinkย  ย Direct Sellers or Multi Level Markets as scam artists, or crooks. Some think of them as annoying, and bothersome.ย  Well I am a direct seller, a so called Multi Level Marketer and though my name may not be in spotlights just yet I feel like I have already succeeded beyond my dreams.

Change happens, and learning how to cope with that change I learned by being in this business. It has taught me how to be a better me. To live a life without fear! To live for change!ย  It has taught me that everyday we wake up to a new adventure with no way of knowing where it will take us!!ย  To adapt easier and accept thingsย  good or bad! To enjoy the ride, to live to the fullest!!

Change is hard, but with out it what do you really have?
