Pretty Perfect Posers

I have been slacking on blogging lately and I know it is directly related to the major life change I brought about in the spring, starting my own health and wellness company. It is funny how when you do something out of your comfort zone, those (shitty people) around you feel either 1. threatened, 2. pity (?) or 3. annoyed and avoid all contact as if I've got the plague. This has taught me a  lot about the people I had surrounding myself with in the last decade and what I choose to bring about in the future.

 

Let me back up a bit. In April, I wrote a post about my family and our daily struggle with severe allergies. Wheat is like my family's kryptonite and finding safe and reliable food and products has been a journey in itself. Over 3000 people read that post in less than a couple weeks and it was my first deeply personal exposure to the public about my life and our choices. It was met with mixed response from all kinds of people, family, friends, and strangers, but mostly supportive and appreciative that I shared our struggle and how i'm turing our lemons into lemonade.

Jeff & Gray both suffer with an extreme wheat allergy where they can't come into contact with it or they have a reaction. Jeff seems to be the most severe as he will have an anaphylactic reaction upon contact.  We had to switch out all products (toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant etc) for safer ones as everything seems to contain wheat.

Many people in our lives didn't even know Jeff and the little guy had this condition and that was alarming to me. How had I failed as a friend/sister/niece/cousin in sharing our story? It wasn't anything new, we've been struggling with it for almost five years. Was I too caught up in what was required daily of me to even stop and seek support? I thought about this for a long while and came to the conclusion, no, it wasn't on me. I had simply put stock in people that didn't deserve it. And living in a very small town can leave you feeling like you have no other options. I'm not about to make this post a rant about the people that have failed me, but rather bring attention to the real friends and hero's in my life.

In today's instant information and social media haze, it is so easy to overlook something someone has posted or avoid them all together. All it takes is one click, right? I have employed a different tactic on my social media where I generate lists for all kinds of people in my life and only share to those lists. Its a great way to target my content and generate interaction from the people that WANT to see what i'm all about. I talk more about how to employ this tactic here, but basically if you are in any kind of network marketing business, you should set this up asap. 

So, this post is for you, the reader. You may be a stranger, a friend from high school, a family member or even one of my so-called BFF's. Ask yourself, just because you don't understand what I'm doing, should you shit all over it behind my back? To be blunt (which you all know I am and value that quality in others) what does that say about yourself? I'm not here to try and bring anyone down, rather weed out the negative nellies. I haven't published in over four months, but boy have I been writing. I have about a dozen unpublished drafts with stories of success, failure, heartbreak and results from everything I've been up to the last while. I haven't shared them because I didn't want to loose the support of some people around me. I realize now, if they don't support me for WHAT I'M DOING, they don't support me. And thats totally fine, now. I've come to a place where I don't NEED their support, I'm getting it elsewhere and its amazing to be part of a community of people that help encourage and bring people together. No longer do I care if an old friend has ignored a phone call or text from me. For all they know I could have been asking to see if they wanted to go to the beach that day, but the plague is real people. Ignorance is real. People are afraid of what they don't understand and having experienced amazing success within my first couple months with Arbonne, I get that I don't need those people. They may never see what it is I'm really doing and I don't need them to see it. I connect with so many people worldwide DAILY helping them reach their true potential or recommend products so many people are searching for these days. 

So if you are reading this, and you are looking for a better way, a better way to buy your products, a better way to care for your family, a better way to generate income in your life and a BETTER WAY to connect with the human race, reach out to me. My favorite part about this gig is I get to teach and train new people to do as I do and that is where the beauty lies. My team is growing fast and internationally in a hurry, its exciting to watch it happen and to see the excitement in my support group around me, so dedicated to my own success.  

So, friend, what side of the fence are you on? I urge all of you that are annoyed by this post, left feeling uncomfortable by something i've wrote to not x out and block me, but to look within yourself to see what it is about my message that you are uncomfortable with. That is where the work needs to be done, on yourself, not on unfollowing another person. 

So marks the start of a bunch of great new content coming your way here on Project K. Join in, or get off. It makes no difference to me, I'm going to keep doing what i've always done but now I just don't need your permission anymore. 

my boys and I on holiday's summer 2015. I never thought I'd put a bare faced picture of myself on the internet. Thanks Arbonne for transforming my life and my skin!!!
