Last week, I was able to send some time on self development with some of the best people. I will admit that more often than not, taking time out to grow and learn is something that can get pushed to the side.
But...it is so important! Self reflection and evaluation helped me figure out just how diligent I am truly being. Am I settling or pushing myself to my truest potential?
This journey is my own journey. No one else’s! And the way my journey is going, is exactly the way God intended it to go! But I have to have faith in Him and put in the work!
I need to stop comparing myself to others. And do me!!! Find out who I am!
Looking at me now and looking at myself last year or even 2 or 3 years ago since I started this journey to better health. I have changed. I have grown. I have helped changed lives!
Hitting a goal or making that dream a reality are the “physical” gifts at the end but the journey and personal growth we go thru during that process is the real gift. The gift that actually keeps giving. It keeps us going for that next goal or dream. With each step we grow stronger and stronger! We could never achieve that next step if we didn’t go thru the process.❤️
House to choose a new home: #KirstyandPhil and #escapetothecountry make it look so easy. Find 3 houses to view, sit in a pub with a drink, phone the agent and voilà = job done. I have two words for that process, "As. If." Finding our new home was a challenge and a half. And not because we were picky. As these pictures show, we viewed a variety of houses from show stopping grandeur to fixer uppers, old to new, detached, semis, city and more rural, those big enough and those that would need extending. We were pretty open minded as long as the house had potential.
We chose to sell our home at the perfect time for sellers. There was a huge demand and we'd had 4 full asking and over asking price offers within 36 hrs of listing our home for sale. The dream seller scenario. However, it also meant it was the worst time to try to buy. Not many houses were coming up within our budget and so there was SO much competition when they did, houses sold sometimes even before making it to the internet and there were cash buyers everywhere (damn builders). We viewed 17 houses in the end. It took up every weekend of our lives for 3 months and although it was fun initially, it very soon because frustrating and laborious. We offered on 6 in total (1st pic) before we had an offer accepted.
People kept telling us not to worry or get disheartened and that the right one would come along. We put our offer in on number 39 on July 27th. To this day there has not been another property within budget that would have been suitable. I guess number 39 really was meant to be ours 😊
“There are six things the Lord hates— no, seven things he detests: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent, a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong, a false witness who pours out lies, a person who sows discord in a family.”
HOOOOLLLLDDDDD UP!!!!! Something majorly exciting happened today!!! Two of my favorite oils are now in the Premium Starter Kit! 😍😍😍😍 The kit now has 12 oils! Valor and Peace & Calming retail for $98 together. That means the kit value is INSANELY huge now.
Valor is my go to oil when I need to calm myself, stabalize my nerves, assist in body alignment and more!
Peace & Calming...well I love to diffuse this after school. 😂😂😂 Grab a new kit through me this month and I'll mail you out 2 pairs of diffuser earrings in your welcome package. 💃
Another amazing Attraction marketing Bootcamp has finished and so much great knowledge has been gained.👩💻
Now to implement it! 💪
One of the gold nuggets of this training for me has been this:
"Faith it till you make it!" 🙌 ❌Don't FAKE it till you make it, people will smell it miles away.💩
