Scratch the title ~

Yup! That is what I just did!  I had an big ol’ long blog post written out, and just deleted the entire thing!!  Why? Because it was getting simply too wordy to announce a huge shift/change in my life and business! So, without any further adieu ~ I am simply copying/pasting an email I sent out!  A short back story, early in February I was hit with the realization that I needed to return to my passion, which is, and has been for several years skin care.  I LOVE the philosophy on which Arbonne’s principles were founded, yet, I was finding myself stretched far too thin with ‘all’ that they have to offer.  While I firmly believed I was on the right track, I also just began to feel some sort of ‘unsettling’ in my spirit.

I knew that returning to the basement to ‘make my own’ goods wasn’t the answer, yet, I didn’t know what it was.

Early in March I had a conversation with a friend who shared with me a switch she had made.  She had been introduced to a company whose ONLY mission is skin care.afraid  I listened, watched, gleaned, read their ingredients, and policies, learned about the founder, and her mission (which totally mirrored mine), and knew I had found a company that takes the mission that Arbonne had grown in my heart another step further.

As I prayed and pondered I felt this was the right choice for me.  Their ingredients more closely match my basement days, along with their commitment to using essential oils and blends.  Along with that, their price point is in a range that is much more affordable for the average American household.

With that, I want you to know that I have resigned my ID with Arbonne, and have joined Beautycounter.  Please know that this wasn’t a snap decision, but, was one that I know is right.  Please take time to browse my site,My beautycounter site.  On the front page you will find videos on the beginnings of Beautycounter ~ take a minute and watch!

I realize this may come as a shock to some of you, and for that, I apologize.

For anyone that would like more information on Beautycounter, please don’t hesitate to email and ask, I look forward to sharing this amazing product with any of you!

I wasn’t going to go,,,,

really.  Actually, I wasn’t going to make the phone call.  Nope. I wasn’t.  I looked at my week and thought nope.  Not. gonna. do. it.  Whuu?? Laura, you can be so confusing!

On Thursday, my daughter called me with a phone number of a Massage Therapist.  There was an event scheduled for Sunday, from 1-4.  First of all, I seriously work HARD to keep Sundays’ vacant of activity.  It is The Lord’s Day, and I make every effort to honor that.

I made the call.  The Massage Therapist was thrilled to have me join a group of other vendors at her small event.

Okay.  I went.  Before I share the results, let me tell you ‘why’ I went.  My very good friend, Lani Muelrath, posted a comment on her Facebook page the other day ~ it went like this: When ‘you’ stop stopping yourself ‘you’ become unstoppable.

That really hit me between the eyes.  As an example, here is a picture of Lani, (shared with her permission) .  This is a ten + year journey for her. Had she stopped herself, physically she would not be were she is.  Nor would she ever had become the mentor of so many on an international, internet level. Or, of at least one.  Me.  She has truly become an inspiration to me.

I encourage you to click on the link on my side bar to check out her extraordinarily powerful, one of a kind, fit quickie exercises.  I love them.

However, back to my title.  I didn’t want to go.  But, I did.  This is why.  I have a list.  I refuse to call it a bucket list ~ because bucket lists seem to imply something you will do before you die.  While that may be true, I am going there while I’m living, and enjoying life.  As a matter of fact, it is slated for next summer. Where is there?  There is Scotland, more specifically, Stirling Castle.  I shall also roll in the heather upon my visit to the Scottish Highlands.  Bannockburn.  Several places in-between.  However, to accomplish this goal, I must continue to press on with my business.  I absolutely LOVE what I do, but, sometimes, ya know, you get tired, you want a day off.  BUT!!!

When you STOP STOPPING YOURSELF, YOU BECOME UNSTOPPABLE is now forever in my head.

So, I went.  The result?  Business partners coming on next week.  Presentations booked.  Additional Business partners in September.  What if I had STOPPED myself?  Life is good my friends, So, I ask you, are you stopping yourself?  Or, will you become UNSTOPPABLE?

(Disclaimer; typically I have my blogs proofread for grammatical errors, etc., however, today you are treated to ‘shoot it from the hip’ writing!)

Blessings, my friends!
