ROAD TRIP!!! I am SUPER excited to be going on a week-long vacation with my extended family. Unfortunately my hubby can’t come due to some health issues so we’ll miss him. BUT, I’m heading out with the girls to hang out with my mom’s side of the family at a state park in Virginia.
My girls are SO excited about hanging out with their 7 cousins. It brings back fond memories for me of when we did family vacations with my cousins. I’m looking forward to a week of rest and relaxation, pool time, playing games and being outdoors.
I was just reflecting today on how I’ve taken more vacation than EVER in 2015. So far, we’ve traveled to to Cancun, Florida, Rehoboth. Now we are heading out for a week. We also have trips planned to the Dominican Republic and Jamaica. In my corporate job, I NEVER had the luxury of being able to take vacation time whenever I wanted to. Seriously, I was so limited on the number of vacation days and even the timing of WHEN I could take those vacations. I felt like I had to ask permission to live my life.
THAT is why this means so much to me. Becoming a Beachbody coach and being part of this community has BLESSED me and my family more than I could’ve imagined. There are moments like this where I take a deep breath and say a prayer of gratitude. Family is everything for me and I’m so grateful for this TIME we have together.
I remember the day I quit my job to build my own business. I was SUPER excited and also TERRIFIED. I was taking a huge pay cut. There were no guarantees. Some people even gave me the side-eye. Haha.
But it was all worth it. I’m blessed to have increased my income over what I was making at my corporate job and to be able to live a LIFE BY DESIGN. I get to choose how I spend my time and make my family my priority. That means SO MUCH to me.
This is definitely not a get-rich scheme or something where you get “something for nothing”. Run away if people try to sell you something like that. Haha. This is simply a business where you get rewarded for helping others. Helping them with their health and fitness. Helping them with their confidence and personal growth. Helping them build their business. And when you help enough people, you get reap rewards beyond what you could’ve imagined.
THAT is the reason I share this with people. Because I know that it can change people’s lives for the better. I know that there are SO MANY moms out there who are YEARNING for more flexibility, more freedom, and the ability to spend more time with family. This opportunity can give you that. It will take work, effort and sacrifice. But it’s all worth it.
One of my favorite quotes is, “Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t so that you can spend the rest of your LIFE like most people can’t.”
I don’t have any special talent, skill or ability that helped me do this. One day I just decided to GO FOR it. I wanted to create a better life for myself and my family. I said “Why not me?”
So, I’m going to ask YOU to ask yourself that question. “Why not you?…Why not you to create a life YOU love and which reflects your highest priorities?”
The only thing that holds us back from our own power and potential is ourselves. We let all these fears of what other people will think and lack of belief in ourselves hold us back. I believe we have an OBLIGATION to share ourselves with the world and to live out our God-given potential.
Open your mind to the possibilities for your life….
