Lucky to be…

Today is one of those days where an epiphany happened. It could be I’m running high on an almond milk latte. It could be that I had an incredible CrossFit and TRX workout today (more on TRX tomorrow). It could just be that I was meant to write this post today- just to share my feelings. Whatever reason, you get to read about it. Aren’t you lucky… 😉

I am human (I’m pretty sure). I bitch. I complain. I take for granted. And I accept. And you know what, I am lucky.

Leprechaun. Um no...

I am insanely, incredibly, and tremendously lucky for all that I have, all that I have been given, and all that I have accomplished. At 25 years old, I have wonderful, loving, and 100% supportive parents and family that keep me motivated. I have accomplished almost every goal that I have set out to achieve (lost 50 lbs, ran a full marathon, started my own business). I am 1000000% capable of lifting some heavy-ass weights, running some far distances, bend and flex in some cool yoga poses. And now, I am my own boss.

I think a lot of people out there have a mission or goal of living their lives to the fullest. Am I right? I know I want to. I want to be able to take a vacation when I want to. I want to be able to make my own schedule, set my own rules, run my own life… being subject to a full-time job is not always the most enjoyable way to spend you day… is it? I just have to throw out there that I am lucky to have found the business I did.

Not only do I now have the complete flexibility of choosing when I work, but I have had the opportunity to travel to new places and meet, and work, with some incredibly friendly and caring individuals (Hi Mom, Pamela, Monica, Angie, Julie, Wendy, Marcia!).

My paychecks have reflected the increase in hours working and since I’ve gotten back from (amazing) New Orleans, my business has taken off! See, I’m lucky. I mean really, where else can you start your own business with little investment, increase your checks significantly (and fast), work with two of the brightest minds in skin care/technology, be one of the firsts to be apart of this incredible opportunity, and teach other people to start their own businesses?

Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields
Marie Claire, Oct. 2010- We were scooped! They leaked the story before we even launched our new products!

Not someone I know, I just liked this picture. lol. AMP MD in use!

This tool is A W E S O M E- just launched, nothing like it, amazing anti-age skin tool.

Ok, now that that is out of my system, I am also lucky for another reason…

I get to eat some damn good food… Seafood!

Ahhh! It has a face!
Paprika and lemon stuffed whole baked trout
Don't mind the uncut nail... this fish was moist and amazingly tender!
With a side of quinoa and salad and I'm set.
Boyfriend's lobster dinner... I'm just not a fan. Am I the only weird one?
Coconut Curried Shrimp in a Mango Curry Sauce- spectacular!
Super blurry: Crab and shrimp piled with guacamole with mango, creamy aoli and sriracha sauce
Marinated ahi tuna nachos (INCREDIBLE flavors!)
Blurry Ceviche: wild fish, shrimp, and squid marinated in tomato, lemon, lime, onion, and cilantro
Looks are deciving: Crab shell stuffed and baked with crab, artichoke hearts, and cheese (OMG- this was incredible)

Lucky or spoiled… why split hairs?

All of the restaurant pics, from the lobster down, were taken (sorry they were blurry!) from Sandabs in Scotts Valley, CA (just north of Santa Cruz, CA). SUCH great food! See, I’m lucky to live close to the Ocean where seafood is aplenty! 😉


I am lucky. And I would like to thank you, YES YOU!, for reading my blog, supporting me with comments. You are some amazing people. Don’t forget that!
