I have spent most of the week watching the weather channel for what was happening on the east coast with Hurricane Florence. I am thankful to see that it is now just a tropical storm but it has caused a huge amount of destruction in the past couple of days. I hope that those affected are able to get the help that they need to get everything cleaned up and back to normal as soon as possible. I knew that the hardest part of my trip was going to be my flight home since I was flying into Charlotte, NC. We spent the entire morning checking and re-checking our flight status to make sure that our flight was not canceled. The good thing was that our flight was later in the afternoon instead of an early morning flight. Our plans had been to land, get our bags, and then make the 4-hour drive home but we decided to grab a hotel room instead. I am not a huge fan of driving at night but adding the horrible rain and fog would make it just a nightmare. We are still so tired that spending a night before we make the 4-hour drive sounds great. My feet are swelled, they look like sausages, and I have not been drinking enough water. I love traveling but I miss my husband and I need to get back in some sort of routine. I also want to just eat normal food again. The food was delicious (even the shrimp with the heads still attached) but I spent almost 2 months trying to lose weight and I found every bit of it in New Orleans. I love the colors in the print of this dress. I had to look up what the name of the print on the dress was and I found out it was called Majolica. This reminds me of the tiles that you see in the Middle East and I assume that is what they were mimicking. The slight flare of the dress is flattering and it helps to create curves if you are built like me which is like a ruler. The handkerchief hemline creates visual interest and it is also flattering. You need to know what looks best on your body to figure out what style of dress to get. If you are curvy then a fit-and-flare style dress would probably look the best for you. However, an apple might prefer a shift dress for their style. There are lots of different styles to choose from so just try on several to see what fits your body type best. THIS dress is machine washable and does run true to size and I am wearing a size 12.
My week of learning and growing has come to a close. There’s literally not a part of my body that isn’t hurting! I’ve walked no less than 40,000 steps (20-25 miles) in 4 days (those who know me know this is unheard of for me )…so many things to come through, not just for my business but for ME as a woman. My journey is just beginning. So grateful for the experiences I’ve had and the amazing women I’ve had the pleasure of bonding with!! This entire week was spent on uplifting each other. I love this business and this company because of all that they do for women and the youth. They had a goal to have given 10,000,000.00 dollars in 10 years to the Prescription For Change Foundorganizationainization for the betterment of our youth. The goal was reached at the last minute when we hit 10,187,796!!! What an awesome company I get to partner with.
I was so impressed by the diversity of women (and men) that I saw at the R+F Convention. There were every size and shape represented along with women in there earlier 20’s to women in their 80’s. There were extremely large women, extremely small women, and women who were in wheelchairs. There were women of all different races and from all walks of life. I met waitresses, lawyers, teachers, nurses, pharmacists, realtors, retired ladies, and stay at home moms. Each one of them was so different but they all had something in common……….they wanted MORE! I don’t know what their “more” was because it is different for each person. One person might be wanting more money while the next person might be wanting more friendships or confidence. I love helping more women feel good about themselves. I love seeing someone have the confidence to go into a room and know that they look nice. I love helping someone earn an extra payday that they might be in desperate need of. I love helping women!! If you are interested in hearing MORE then send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can schedule a phone call. You never know how that one little email can change your life. Don’t settle, go for MORE!
