... a few things have changed, and I have realized some things. The biggest change seemed huge and nonsequitur with my life at the time, but after reading over the posts on this blog, I guess I should have seen it coming:
I became a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant.
Yes, I did that just about 6 months ago. And what a half year it has been! I'm still in love with the product, and I'm even more in love with the company. I'm learning how to set and achieve goals, the biggest of which has been earning my RED JACKET! I earned it in December with the addition of my third team member. It was an exciting month! And thanks to Mary Kay I really do feel like I'm becoming a new person.
Leif doesn't have to photoshop out my wrinkles any more. Hallelujah! I'm learning that it's not about me, and this business isn't about selling product. It's about serving women. It's the greatest opportunity I could have been given, I think. I am learning to love others and lift them up. And I am continuing to learn how to look and be my best!
But because I am now a consultant, I think the blog needs to be less about Mary Kay (no matter how much I love it!) and more about other things. And if I can't find other things to write about? Well, I guess it will just quiet into oblivion. And that's okay, because we all know that I have enough other blogs to keep me busy. =D
Now... onto something I've learned about myself in the last 6 months...
I LOVE SHOES!
Perhaps not a surprise to some, given my last blog post, but it's true! My latest acquisitions?
Looks like I've got a thing for peep-toe wedges these days! I don't know if it's sad, but it's true! I love them! Not quite as on sale as the last ones I bought (see the post below), but it was BOGO, so I guess that counts for something. And I DID need some black slip on shoes that were cute! =D I'd say these qualify. And they're cute, too!
My last realization?
I LOVE BAGS!
I'm too lazy to switch out handbags very often, but I learned that I love them. Who knew? Right now I've got a bright red patent leather bag I earned through MK and I absolutely love it. I don't even care that it's huge and bright and loud. It makes me smile like you wouldn't believe, and that's reason enough for me to carry it!
So there you have it... my last 6 months in a nutshell. At least when it comes to fashion and skin care. ;D
