I am just going to take a minute to say Thank You. I am practicing gratefulness and beginning each morning with prayer about what I am thankful for to get in the habit. So it just makes sense to me to give a little gratitude here! For this blog is the source of most of the things I am grateful for! For the past week now I have been praying for God to send me those people who are interested in a healthier lifestyle, who will be open to hearing what I have to say and teach, and more than my daily bread but more not for me but for me to bless others with. I went from having 4 hundred something friends last week to 1127 today with more friend requests in my box than I can keep up with. I really want to connect to each and every one of my new friends. I can say I will be busy developing relationships with each of my new friends and trying to promote whatever it is they are in business with or helping others with! I can’t begin to explain this away even though my skeptic ways want to. My blog is getting promoted by other lovely bloggers who are so creative and giving so much wisdom to their followers as well and I am learning so much in this community. I have learned how it feels to just be another face to sell to and how not to sell like that. I have learned what it’s like to make a real connection with someone and begin to develop a beautiful friendship. I have also learned the importance of having these people to turn to and talk about real life. I have learned how to be vulnerable and open myself to the entire new world and just a few months ago, my best of friends wouldn’t know what I would be going through. I would never share about anything too personal and I didn’t feel like developing relationships and having friends or a community to belong to was important. I have also learned how to provide the knowledge I have to give the opportunities in a non-cheesy sells-y way because no one wants that. I have also learned to be a giver and not a taker. I have made it my passion to give to others with my time, my money, my efforts, and become a better leader because they deserve me to lead them to our highest potential. (Luckily there’s an oil for that!) I believe in my products, I believe in my team, I believe in myself and mostly I believe that God will not let you miss your purpose!
