Why…?!

So almost 3 weeks ago I started this outrageous project. I started with a huge goal that I wanted to reach at the end, like a light at the end of a tunnel, or a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. All of the sudden life happened and I became overwhelmed with everything and gave up on my outrageous project. Today I revisited my project, all the notes I wrote about it, and the vision I had, the awesome pot of gold at the end of that ridiculous rainbow. I realized that life is always going to happen, kids get sick, arguments happen with your spouse, & some days you just feel off but you can’t just give up on your dreams because of these things….that is silly and ends up leading you down a path of unhappiness. One of the most influential women in my life told me not long ago that sometimes #SuccessIsChaos, she was right 🙂 So today I sat in front of my notes and decided I had to show myself WHY this project struck my heart in the first place, and WHY I needed to get back to work.
I thought I would share the vision of my project I am working on. Hey, if it’s on the internet for the world to see then I have to be accountable right?!
I have a vision, a dream and a driven passion to free young families from the burden of working themselves to the bone in a job that they have zero passion for. I want to show them there is more to life than work, eat, sleep, repeat. Wouldn’t you like to make it to your child’s kindergarten graduation? How about being present when your tiny toddler takes his or her very first steps, instead of watching it on a video sent by your babysitter after you get home from work? Family vacations don’t have to be put on the back burner because ‘it’s not a good time’ or ‘work is just too busy’.
There is something that is just so much bigger and better than work, eat, sleep, repeat. There is a way to enjoy time freedom, financial freedom, and live your life the way YOU choose.
Today is the day that I take a stand and begin to live my vision, I will no longer work, eat, sleep, repeat. I will build my empire, while watching my children play, grow and enjoy the life of their dreams. I will show them how to dream as big as they can and then I will show them how to achieve every single one of their dreams.
If any of this resonates with you in any way, shape, or form then maybe you should email me and we should be friends. Seriously, you are the sum of the 5 people you spend the most time with and spending time with people who share the same giant vision as me would be AWESOME!!! Imagine the lives we could change and the places we could travel?! That would be a kick ass life. So seriously, don’t be shy, I don’t bite, email me and let’s be friends! 🙂

Being Silly Makes the Day Better

I just wanted to write today about how my morning went.  So most mornings I’m up before the crack of dawn to make lunches for the kids, get the dogs out for a run, enjoy some peaceful meditation and sip on a coffee before the kids wake up!  Today was just like all the rest with that standard routine, except I started to feel really silly as I got in the car to take my 9 year old to school.  It started with waving like a maniac and making silly faces at my friend as we drove away.  While driving, my absolute favourite song (right now) Happy by Pharrell Williams, came on the radio, this just added to my silliness as I belted it out with my son.  We pulled into the parking lot and he wanted to listen to his favourite song, what happened next changed the entire course of how my day was going to be.  We started a car dance party.  Singing, dancing, playing the air saxophone all the while other parents dropping their kids off are looking at us with strange expressions on their faces.  It got me thinking about being silly, and happy, and content, and also not being afraid to be a little weird and have people stare at you.  I’m sure this dance party set the tone for my son to have the best possible day today, I know I am having an AWESOME day.  The silliness has continued with me and my excitement and silliness is infecting everyone around me.  So if you woke up on the wrong side of the bed today, or if someone cut you off on your way to work, you hit every red light, you spilt your precious coffee, whatever may have happened here’s what you need to do.  STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING RIGHT NOW, turn up the music and dance your little heart out!! Dance all those negative, crappy, angry, frustrated feelings right out of your body!!!!  You’ll feel better, I know you will….I leave you with 24 hours of Happy to get you moving and get you smiling today! 🙂
