I took a leap of faith about a week ago and I decided to join my sister in the Land of Pink Happiness.
I mean, really…think about it. Pink and Happiness?! How could someone NOT join?
So what is the Land of Pink Happiness?
The lady who rarely wears make-up is now officially selling cosmetics.
Why I did it.
1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the skin care line. It makes my skin look and feel beautiful…so, lovely, in fact, that I never really want to cover up my real skin with make-up because it looks so lovely. True story.
2. It makes you happy. The whole organization is centered on women supporting women, who in turn, are helping women look and feel their best. There is competition, of course, but, the supportive kind…where you work to promote your co-Mary Kayers while building your own business. I can honestly say, when my sister began her business, she changed. Her perspective on life turned to incredibly optimistic, happy, focused and encouraging. Even with things are crappy, she has learned to re-focus on what is important and make even the worst of days good. I need as much good energy, support, fun and good in my life as possible. I needed to surround myself with good energy and good women. So, – yep. I joined.
3. I saw it as a fun opportunity to earn money AND still get to be a stay-at-home mom like I have always been. I am a Mom. First and foremost. But, like we all know…even mommies need to have some sort of income. So, I think that it is a great opportunity to do something for my family without having to give up my SAHM status.
4. It is a challenge. I have never sold anything in my life. I have never worked in this kind of environment. So, I see it as new and as exciting and a cool opportunity to see a new side of me. In a point in my life that is overflowing with change, I thought I would test out a new identity to see how it works in my new world.
All in all…I am pretty excited. I am in a place where I never envisioned myself…so, it makes sense that I do things I never envisioned myself doing. Yesterday was my official ‘kick-off’ and it was honestly a wonderful day. I was surrounded by positive energy, friends, laughter, accomplishment and support. Who doesn’t need that?
That counts for something, right?
