Once again I am using that handy little calendar to backdate my post. I have had so much going on and have to prioritize things and this blog is one thing I can set aside temporarily until I get a minute to update it. So I am grateful that I am so busy because it means I have things to do, that I have 2 nanny jobs with kids I love, that I have a life and family that I spend time with and a business that I run that I am so passionate about. All these things keep me going and going but it is all worth it and God is blessing me everyday with strength, health and energy to live it all.
Encouragement! I am grateful for the encouragement I received today from a couple of ladies I have grown to love and appreciate so much! They have come along side of me to help me with my business and in turn became my friends. They are always there with a word or a compliment to help motivate me to be my best and not give up. I see them working hard for themselves and our team and I know they are pulling for me to succeed every step of the way. When others are not so encouraging I know if I call them I will get the boost I need and will be able to press on. They are there in not only words but actions, if I have something that needs to be done or someone to meet with that I can't, they are willing to help. I couldn't do this without them. As I have said before, I think God brought this company into my life for more than a few reasons and meeting these ladies was definitely a big part of that! The encouragement I receive from them is beneficial to me in many ways and I am so grateful!
Social Media! So many possibilities to share your thoughts, your pics, your business, your life. As a business owner I really appreciate the avenues available to me to promote my business and inform my potential customers of what I have to offer. I am on several different sites and I like them for different reasons. And things are great when everything is working. Lately my company has been having some problems with Facebook and Instagram. They won't let us post links to our corporate website. Our corporate office is working on it but in the mean time it really limits what we can share.
So I am glad we have other avenues.
So if you are interested and want to find and share my info, hint hint, here are the links:

I promise that this 365 Gratitude project will not be all about my company. But I am very grateful for it and everything it has brought into my life and want to share it from time to time. Today my company, It Works, is holding their annual conference in Florida and I was not able to go this year. I went last year and had an amazing time. During conference they announce new promotions and new products and I am so thankful that I am a part of this amazing 12+ year old DEBT FREE company that gives back to their customers, distributors and the community! All of their products are all natural, whole foods and are made with the highest quality ingredients and standards. They have changed my life! They strive to keep current and help all of us build our business and get and stay healthy! So today as I continue to get updates from my team members that are there, I am so thankful and appreciative of this opportunity God has given me to be a part of this company!
Today I am thankful for my loyal customers! I am thankful that my business is growing. I know that God has brought this business to me for many reasons like my health, my finances and to meet some wonderful people that I might never have met otherwise.
But I also think He had other reasons in mind. I used to be much more of an introvert. I never like to be the center of attention or speak in front of a group of people. I am not a born salesman nor do I have an outgoing personality. And you could forget about me posting my pic all over the internet! I was embarrassed to talk about myself to anyone other than close friends so a blog would have been out of the question. All that started to change once I began using these products. My life changed for the better so much and so quickly that I wanted to tell everyone. I wanted to share what I had found that was helping me. And if it could help me, someone with fibromyalgia, then it could help anyone. Now almost 2 years later I am more outgoing. I will tell anyone who listens all about me, my journey with fibro and my business and products. I stand in front of networking groups and can talk without problems and share my story. I can post my pics and write my blog and tell about the things I am most grateful for and not be embarrassed or have fear of rejection. I have learned that for everyone I talk to or share with or who reads my posts, it's either the right time or the wrong time. And if they say yes and want to be a part of this amazing opportunity then great! And if not then it might not be the right place, right time for them. I have been learning not to take it personal, not see it as they are rejecting me or even my company sometimes. It might just be the timing of it all. And I am ok with that because I will be here when their time rolls around and so will my company. Plus just like last night, there will be a loyal customer or distributor out there that says "Yes, today is the perfect time for me to sign up for It Works!" And I thank God for those perfect place, perfect time moments that are still coming.

I am thankful for potential, in all of us, in everything, every situation, no matter what, there is always potential. I am trying to see the potential in myself. I am putting myself out there in my business, with my blogs and website and trying to expand my previous idea of myself into something bigger. I have always had dreams and hopes and would sometimes reach a little for them but I am realizing that a little is not enough. I am broadening my horizons, taking a leap of faith, trying new things. Potential is looking at something in a new light, a different way.I need to see the potential in my relationships. I am aware of the great potential in the team I am building within my business. I see amazing potential in this company. The potential for my health to improve even more is a constant motivator to use the products and share them with others. It is said, "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me." What greater potential could there be?
