This week’s journey was another whirlwind. Are your ready to read about it? Another set of highs and lows, successes and failures set the backstage for where we are right now.
This Week’s Journey…4/17/18 – 4/21/18
Sunday, I went to church and it was so good. I learned and I worshipped and I felt peace. If I could have come home and slept for 2 hours that would have been the perfect reset. By now, you know, that did not happen. I already determined in my mind that this week would be so much different. Plans were made during last week’s journey to begin living a balanced life.
Monday, I prepared for my week by resting and working on promoting my brand. I made a few phone calls that I was procrastinating about making. Not too shabby at all, I didn’t get much done and it didn’t hurt, terrific! To make it even better I received my biggest Paparazzi order to date! Making Monday wonderful and Tuesday great! I volunteered for a wonderful program called the Pajama Program, where we read to children while providing them with pajamas. It was over the top for me. Meeting the children was wonderful, they were so excited. The children enjoyed the book reading and really enjoyed the pajamas. I enjoyed myself so much and I look forward to doing it again. I was on a complete high note and took myself over to an interview.
My interview went well considering that I had prior knowledge of the company before arriving. We laughed and talked and I sat through a small preview of the work that would be done. We immediately scheduled a demo for me to participate in the very next day to see if I’d like the work that’s involved. Wednesday came and I was exhausted because I couldn’t stop thinking about, 1) enjoying myself volunteering, 2) doing well on an interview, 3) a day following someone and what that would be like, 4) I still have to blog, when will I do that?! and now 5) I’m doing an entire-day long demo. Nevertheless, I get up and I arrive, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, ready to go on time!
I spent 8 hours with a senior worker who’s energy level was on 150%. All that I could do was admire this woman. She is excited and ready for whatever life brings. God is good! Another person would have never convinced me to join this company. This woman is so alive about life! She reminds me of myself. I consider the fact that I’m Still Sealed With Love and it breathes life into me everyday so I should definitely have her energy. Here, a woman of a particular age with the body of a teenager and the energy to match, all that I can still say is WOW!
The Phone Call!
The demo wore me out! I’ll have to work on my energy levels to get to this lady’s level. At home I promoted on Pinterest, caught up with some Instagram followers and fell backwards and straight to sleep in my chair while doing so. Thursday, in the rain, I ran errands and I went to a seminar that I was scheduled to attend and I’m happy to say that I learned something, it wasn’t a waste of time. Then, the phone call came through!
A second interview was requested but I had to schedule a time. There isn’t any time like the present, so I scheduled it to happen after the seminar and some finagling was done, this time-no, this time, you know, the back and forth and getting it right thing. Needless to say, we met and I signed the dotted line. Next step, I’m going to training and I’m set to take the test to become a licensed insurance agent in the State of New York. Can you say nervous?
What Happened to Friday?
Now, according to my new plan, of “living a balanced life”, should have been in full swing. I should be able to relax on Fridays and Saturdays. Unfortunately, my great highs/successes during the week helped me to get off track and Friday became one of those Fridays that I never want again. It wasn’t all bad, just really weird. I should have been off and my husband was off, we were scheduled for relaxation.
Everyone was home and we had a really big breakfast. So far, so good, everything is going nicely. BOMB! What happened? Irritability kicked in. I attempted to avoid irritation by doing a little promoting since I was in the land of doingnothingness (my made up word for a place where I do nothing). Everyone is yelling about different things. I’m now in the middle of the mess. The day continued with one low after another. Most of the house disappeared outside so that it was only my husband and I left disagreeing about every single thing underneath the great big sun.
We never went out. Neither one of us did anything for fun. I don’t remember laughing. It was as if I needed a completely terrible day to balance out the rest of my week. Incredible, right? Now, I’m working on my new week, preparing for my LIVE videos and writing you. How was your week?
Do you have a plan for living a balanced life? Would you mind sharing it with me?
