Weekly Reflections

Thanks to Deborah I came across scattered life collective. I liked what I was reading so I joined and from now on you can read my story on a weekly basis.

State of Being

I've survived my big birthday! It was hard but I did it. I also made some major career changes. Until now I did accounting full time and I had a 'secret life' of a beauty consultant with Mary Kay Cosmetics. After 20 years or so I've realized that being a beauty consultant makes me feel like a million $$, makes me happy - on the other hand - accounting doesn't make me happy, just pays the bills... Well, I decided to be MK beauty consultant full time and do accounting just part time (for now). Let's see where that will lead me.

Wednesday I'm leaving for MK Seminar in Toronto and I'm so excited! Four days filled with classes, demonstrations (my favorite one is with the makeup artist) and, of course, a Gala Night. Gala night is awesome - it is almost like the Academy Awards but better. Instead of Oscars consultants are awarded with cars, diamond jewellery, exotic trips, money - next year I'll be on the stage collecting some of the rewards, cross my heart. After all, sky is the limit.  Here is a little  promo clip from the upcoming event.

I haven't stitch much last week... this is progress on a new start called 'Courage' from Little House Needleworks

Good things

  • Finally I met Janet. We know each other for a while through the blogland, it was a treat to meet her in person. Here we are, I'm wearing beautiful shawl made by Janet.

  • birthday presents
  • clean up my desk
  • Frosty got her annual vaccination
  • Less bugs this summer
  • Blue sky and sunshine
  • A little rain and a free 'car wash'
