Fun fact about me: I am a total extrovert but I have a really hard time believing that I can influence and inspire other people. In fact a big insecurity I have is befriending new people, because what if they don’t like me? This year, I earned an all expenses paid trip to Spokane WA to visit Young Living’s farms in that area. They are putting a bunch of us in the Davenport Grand Hotel and giving #alltheswag and just spoiling us in general while we are here! But y’all, because of my stupid insecurities, I very nearly cancelled the trip at the last minute because of the anxiety I was feeling over having to be around new people! Of course, one think about punching your fears in the face is, once you do, you realize how silly and insignificant they truly are. I’ve been here all of 5 hours and already I’ve made some amazing new friends that have blessed me so much!! I came here convinced that I would just hide out in my room because no one would like me because I’m a nobody from Milton, FL and I’m not worth being friends with. But tonight I’m walking out the door to dinner, confident that I am worth making friends with, and I do have something to offer! Because guess what? My worth isn’t wrapped up in wether or not people like me! My worth is in Christ and He says I’m enough!!! I don’t often share stuff like this because #feelingsaregross but I just want to shout out all my friends who struggle with feeling like you don’t have anything to offer, that you don’t give value, YOU DO! So I want to encourage you to step out of that comfort zone, make new friends, and be a blessing to others, and don’t miss out on being blessed by adding new friendships to your life. I am so glad I didn’t!
Glamming it up for the Recognition Dinner!
Aaaanway, meeting new people, getting to hug the women I have watched in the business who push me and inspire me has been amazing and just what I needed. I am so glad I decided to come! Shout out to the hubby for holding down the fort (with my Mom’s help!) while I enjoy all this luxury!
I miss my babies of course, but it sure has been peaceful. And not only peaceful, but it has been good to be myself, and to have an identity other than a tired, struggling, stay-at-home momma to 5 kids! Don’t get me wrong, my children are AMAZING and I love them so hard, but the joy, and the fulfillment and the inspiration I have received from the relationships I have found in Young Living has been phenomenal and just good for my soul! I am so thankful the Lord dropped this opportunity in my lap and I am so thankful for the blessings it has brought to me.
