You guys have been so sweet about my announcement two days ago! In case you missed it, I’ve decided to join the Beautycounter team as a consultant and I couldn’t be more excited. A few things you can expect: more videos, more sharing about my experience with Beautycounter, and a few calls to see who wants samples or to host online socials (and get rewarded for it)!
But of course, the day after I make a huge announcement about something big happening in my career my sweet little guy comes down with a pretty high fever and general yucky feeling. I feel like this happens every year – the motivation to make big plans comes so strong after the busy season for food blogging, and then BAM! Each time one of my cuties comes down with something. To be clear, I know that it’s not their handiwork and more than anything I just wish I could take all the ickiness on myself so they wouldn’t have to feel it. There’s nothing more heartbreaking than a sick child.
The thing I’m wanting to work on this year, in this season of sickness and beyond, is a relentlessly positive attitude even in the midst of hardship. For a very long time I’ve tried to be as authentic and real as possible, to the point that I almost feel like I need to share the ick and frustration with others before I even give myself a chance to focus on the positive. That negativity isn’t helping anyone, though, least of all me. This year will be different – even when life happens and babies get sick and work gets hard and relationships are strained and I realize yet again that I have no clue what I’m doing as a parent. Because at the end of all of it all? How BLESSED am I to get to call this my life?
VERY. The answer is very blessed.
I’d love y’alls prayers for my little guy as he fights this sickness, and I promise to be back soon with some delicious food and amazing skincare next week!
