I was sick as a dog last week. I don't know where that saying comes from but it was fitting. I tried pushing through it for a couple days but it really knocked me on my butt on Thursday.
I know we all hate being sick, but I truly hate, with a passion, being down for the count. I hate missing the gym. I hate canceling meetings. I hate hurting when I sneeze. I hate not sounding like myself. I hate the aches and pains that accompany being sick. I just hate being sick.
As hard as it was for me, I took Thursday completely off. In the sense that I stayed home...I didn't go anywhere or expose my nastiness to anyone.
However, I didn't let it stop me completely when it comes to my business. I had some really good ideas and we had an AWESOME event and promotion going on that day! I couldn't let that pass me by!
Yes, I know what you're thinking. I'm crazy obsessed for not taking the day completely off.
But, I was able to do everything I needed to do in my sweats and sat next to the fire, without over-exerting myself or harming myself further. Used my oils like crazy, took sudafed every few hours, and kept myself warm, well fed, and hydrated! All while continuing to grow my business!
This is the beauty of working for myself. I didn't have to risk getting anyone else sick. I didn't have to get dressed up and pretend to feel okay. I was able to do all I needed and wanted to do from the comfort of my home, in my comfy sweatpants and purple slippers!
I love having the power to control my business and my days. It truly is a blessing!
I'll be honest. I never dreamed of owning my own business or being a skincare rep, of all things!
My dream (or what I thought was my dream) was to be a criminal investigator for the government, get married in my 20s, and have 2 kids by the time I was 30. I was going to work for the government my whole career. Retire at 47 and do whatever I wanted.
Ha! Wow, just wow! Look at how that worked out.
Sometimes we have to let go of what we thought we wanted...what we envisioned for our lives...in order to fully claim what life has to offer. I'm so glad I let go of my "dream" to embrace what life was offering me. I couldn't imagine being anywhere but exactly where I am!
I hope you all are having an amazing December and are ready to celebrate Christmas! Remember, Jesus is the reason for the season!
Have a beautiful day! And a blessed week!
With love and wellness,
