Need to Get Back On Track!

Posted on: October 9, 2017

I recently got back from an Amelia James company retreat in San Diego

and am facing some darn really hard truths…

This is me meeting the owner of the company and doing my thing of offering encouragement,   she told me I almost made her cry, lol….

I am so good at taking care of others, but seeing pictures from this trip I can see my weight gain and how I have not been taking care of myself.  

I don’t just mean the weight gain,  I have not been sleeping well, I have not really launched this business I feel so passionate about.    

Today, I was so focused and ready to change that, by doing a Pop-up shop in my front yard since I live on a busy road going into my neighborhood, but alas

mother nature mocked my enthusiasm and sent me scurrying back inside and forgetting that plan…. 

It was just way too windy and after some clothes flew off the rack and broke my hangers, I had no choice but to abandon my plans.

The Director of Sales heard my comments to the company founder and pulled me aside immediately afterward, 

telling me “That was Great!  Take a picture with us!”   What a boost for my damaged soul these last months!   

All we want as humans in this life is to be seen, valued and understood! 

 

The final event of the retreat was the three top people in the company taking the stage to answer questions we had been putting in the box all weekend. 

Imagine my delight when my question was picked and cheered by the room of reps!   

I sat down at the computer to write this post and reliving those moments was good for my wounded soul. 

Some days are harder than others and today was just one of those tough ones. 

I am just putting so much pressure on myself to get this business launched, after realizing that I had tried to start this

too soon in the mourning process.   I am in a much better place now, but just feel so much pressure to fly with this new venture as

there is the added importance and value of spending my sister’s life insurance to start it….

I am looking forward to boxes in the next week or two with new inventory including this outfit… 

The delightful part is that I love the clothing line and am passionate about wanting women to get their hands on the pieces to

fall in love with the comfort and styles.  I came home from San Diego and booked 4 vendor events to do just that and just need to be patient.

I am normally a patient person, but this venture is testing me in a way stronger than I can recall before, unless of course, you count the last month of

pregnancy when every woman becomes impatient.  

Dear Readers, Just working through my funk and writing a blog post seemed better than stuffing my face, which is what I have been doing lately…

When I voice it out loud, I am committed to getting back on track and making self-care a top priority!  Will head back to Weight 

Watchers next week, meeting tomorrow, but it was an early day and is now after 11pm, so sleep is more important. 

Back to eating right and working out in the morning!  Thank you for being my sounding board!  Back with outfit posts soon!

You need to give yourself more credit Tracy!! Just the thought of flying out to San Diego would have frozen me in my tracks!! 🙂

Self care is hard for all of us, I think. I’ve had the worst time getting off my butt to work out, but it is important!
