Brave Girls Club....

Dear Inspiring Girl,

Try for the next 24 to say yes to whatever lessons life is handing you. Say yes to crazy things that have shown up that you weren't expecting, but that you know are meant just for you. Say yes to the opportunity to love unconditionally, even if it is difficult. Say yes to the opportunity to forgive another, even if it has seemed impossible. Say yes to the things that are creating resistance, because they are making you stronger. Say yes to a disappointment that you wish would have turned out the way you wanted it to...and say yes to what is going to show up in it's place.

We bring ourselves so much pain and suffering when we resist the flow of life...when we try to paddle upstream or walk DOWN and escalator that is going UP.

When we can stop and accept the things that we can not change...accept them just as they are....without conditions or expectations...we are free from so many unpleasant things. After we have done all we can, we need to just let things go, and even say yes to the lessons they are bringing to our lives. It is silly and futile when we continue to hold on to the belief that we have control over things that we can never control....outcomes, people, etc.

Trust is powerful. Trust life as it is happening. Let go of any attachments to any specific outcomes. Trust the One who made you, and the plans that are meant for you. Love unconditionally and forgive freely.

C'mon.....just for 24 can do anything for 24 hours. Chances will love the way this feels so much that you will stick with it even longer....isn't it worth a try?

You are so loved, never forgotten and never alone.


Are you a part of the Brave Girls Club? Do you read the Daily Truths? If not, you should make it happen!

This is a tribute to one of my favorite things that a little birdie has told me. Sometimes things are so serendipitous in this little world we live in. Some days everything just seems to make sense. The things that you read and see just seem to feel so interconnected no matter how unrelated things appear from the outside. As I read this daily truth, Dear Inspiring Girl, I thoughts instantly of all of the strong beautiful women that I have been blessed enough to know. Thank you little birdie for reminding me what is important when I need it most.

worlds collide

First off....I am STILL without my camera. I am pretty sure that I know where it is but I am waiting patiently for it to be found there (so that I can be right) and returned to me. Either way, I don't have it. Which in this case is sad. Because there are really no words to describe the fun that I had over the past weekend.
It was a wedding weekend which I usually do not look forward to and am happy to have behind me. Not because I am against weddings or hate love but because I don't fully understand the necessity of spending exorbitant amounts of money on mediocre food and a crappy DJ while people with nothing in common aside from somehow knowing either the bride or groom spend an evening with each other because the bride and groom are usually so overwhelmed that they are hardly able to spend any real time with their guests. And while all of that was a possibility for this was in no way the case. Dan and Erin are thoughtful individuals who wanted to be sure that this weekend was an adventure not soon forgotten by anyone.
We were able to spend 3 full days and night getting to know and enjoy incredibly intelligent, creative and outrageously fun people and I am better for it.
Living in small town MT it is nice to be reminded of and get a taste of all that is out there. AND I have tons of new CA friends to hang with this September when I travel to SF for the R+F Convention!!!
Congratulations Dan & Erin and Thank You for a memorable weekend.

I will try to snag some pics for others to post....and hopefully my camera will be found and returned soon;)

I had an amazing night last night at my Rodan & Fields Big Business Launch! I was lucky to be able to hold it at The Drawing Room; the most adorable little store in Livingston and got some very lucky ladies set up with some fantastic skincare. Last night helped ease my nerves and I feel slightly less crazy for taking this chance on myself and this company. I am definitely blessed to have some really wonderful ladies in my life who support me.
I of course did not bring my camera and have no pictures. To be honest I'm really not sure where my camera is. I'm pretty sure that G was the last one to take it on an adventure but I haven't seen it around lately. hmmmmmmmmmmm

couldn't sleep at allllll last night.........

A combination of excitement and serious anxiety kept me up most of the night thinking about my new venture with R+F. The product is great, the company is solid, that leaves the rest up to me.....but what if NO ONE I know is interested? I thought people would be interested but nothing for sure so far, I had to remind myself over and over that I JUST started and that nothing happens overnight. This business will not happen overnight. Hopefully I can convince myself of this tonight because if not....tomorrow will not be pretty! Help me avoid the loony bin and check out my website!! for products for the business
