Two years ago, I could never have guessed, I would be sitting here writing a blog piece in support of Network Marketing. My personal opinion was steer clear of it, it’s a pyramid scheme. Of course I knew very little about the field. Although I did try and fly a non existent plane once. Boy that was an expensive night!
I promised in my last blog post to share some of my sober October observations. Let me start by saying the biggest finding for me was a sense of peace. I happen to share my head space with a rather snarky and pretty pushy critic. She's a real debbie downer. While I haven't ever given Debbie a name before, as I type this it seems she's been christened. So Debbie she is.
My house mate Debbie particularly enjoys waking up on days after nights when I've been indulging in too many drinks. Why? Because she knows my defenses are low at such times and she can run riot. Which means, game on, she's got plenty to stay, typically starting with an accusation (you shouldn't have) or a question (why did you have to).
Choosing the right picture for this post was a little difficult. I'm sure you will agree we don't often focus our camera's lens on those moments when things could have worked out better. This snap was shot in San Diego on a very over cast beach. It was the last day of a long weekend and my travel companion was on a much earlier flight than I. Which left me at our beachside locale without a lot to do. I could have easily sat around the hotel, perhaps had a few drinks and wasted away my day. Instead I decided to get out in the fresh air and practice yoga on the beach. To my delight the hotel even furnished me with a matt at my request. Result.
I hope like me you're dreaming up a future project of some sort. It's thoroughly stimulating to push boundaries and limits when it comes to what you aim to achieve in life. When I started thinking about following my passion for health and nutrition I had no idea where it would lead. I still don't. But I find with action comes traction. Which is a little like believing you don't need to be ready to start. This is particularly true with a website or blog.
When six weeks ago I felt compelled to launch a website focussed on my future career endeavours I didn't really have a clue what to do. But after plenty of time with my good buddy Google I just got started. I'm quite sure this site will never be finished anyway, it will evolve as I do. And so will you!
