My own thang

Thursday, July 18, 2013

So this week was a big one. Since a new part time job was not enough fun (aka stressful) - on Monday I decided to become a consultant for a certain product. You know..those in-home party ones. And No, I will no be soliciting on here Spark...that is just rude. I don't like it when I see others doing it, so I am not going to unless someone asks directly...and then it's a web-based retail purchase at that because goodness knows, we are all OVER the place on here! LOL

Yup, I took the plunge and then I felt good about the decision.

I felt like I took a step for me, myself and I... and it was just like when I joined Spark. Same feeling of "Ahhhh, I did this for me"

and now... I am reading and learning and having that "AHHHHHHH! OMG I HOPE I REMEMBER IT ALL AND DON'T FAIL!"

And you have to spend money to make money too in business, so I am trying NOT to flip over some of that stuff too now.... more "AHHHH WTF AM I DOING?!?!?!"

But I am trying. It's not like it's $2500 bucks here that I am spending...that honor goes to the truck that decided to rust through the front brakes and have tranny issues this week! LMAO When it rains it pours over here! LOL

Next week we go on vacation there is a bit of a crunch to get some things ordered too. OF COURSE the outlet orders I got for hostess gifts won't be here until August/ I have to put an order in for some other things today too...stuff that will make it here on time for August 1st! LOL Only me....

But it is what it is.

My brain is spinning with all of this BTW...

But that is all...Mentally feeling better too. Things needed to settle in there. I have to give things time.

Funny...I just took a survey for the National Weight Control Registry about delaying gratification with money... Interesting study. You had to choose between money amounts and time frames for returned compensation...and I guess that can go for anything (including weightloss) and now I am experiencing just that!

How ironic is that!?!?!?!

I hope everyone stays well.... I might be on and off on here very sporadically, so forgive me, my Sparkfriends! In the meantime,,,,STAY COOL! emoticon

    I am so happy you conquered your fears and took the plunge of the consultant job. Good for you! I know you will do well with your excellent people skills! I am glad you are going on vacation next week..You deserve it after some difficult weeks.

I am excited about your new career!

I am going to see if the registry sent me that survey..It sounds interesting. I can see the correlation with weight loss!
