Go Ahead. Get Pissed Off. You’ll Feel Better

Go Ahead. Get Pissed Off. You’ll Feel Better…

Yes, I am a yogi. I remain calm as much as possible. Teaching yoga is my favorite thing to do. I believe strongly in the power of positive thinking and manifestation. I use essential oils and Chakra balancing for my health. I informally counsel others on these ways of living. Most of the time, I am a happy, friendly, loving, and giving person.

But right now, I am pretty damn pissed off!

I have found myself here several times since June. I have been deeply immersed in medical arenas, discussions, inquiries, conferences, emergencies, planning, etc. on behalf of my father.

My father.

A vibrant, strong, intelligent, funny, clever, 86 year old man, who’s been reduced to unthinkable things. He WILL recover. He WILL be healthy again. I know it.

But every day or two, I just get pissed off. And I’m okay with that. Pissed off feels good some times. It releases me from the happiness and hopefulness often hard to muster.

Dad…get pissed off and get yourself out of here.

go ahead

Facebook Asked, What’s On My Mind?

Facebook asks me, “What’s on your mind?”  Well, that’s pretty cool. It’s nice and open ended. Tonight, as I enjoy a hotel stay by myself on my way to a conference, I’d like to simply tell you what’s on my mind.

  • A headache is on my mind, but it should be gone soon. Bedtime will be early tonight.
  • My daughter and hubby are on my mind. I will miss them this weekend but hope they have lots of fun together. Facebook
  • Fundanoodle Fiesta is on my mind. This is the first ever National Sales Conference for Fundanoodle. It will be so much fun! We will learn how to grow our businesses by sharing ideas with each other and learning strategies from the experts. I have the honor of sharing a yoga practice on Sunday morning. We will explore postures for our Second Chakra and tap into our creative energy.Facebook
  • Two of my yoga students from this morning are on my mind. One of them is a friend of the women who contributed to my book, In So Many Words. We really connected and hope to work together on some yoga/healing work. The second one is a woman who had been out of class following knee replacement surgery. After class, I asked her how class felt. She said, “It was like coming home.” What an amazing response! Those words made my day!
  • Lots of SEO work on my websites is on my mind. Two experts in the field gave me some really good information about the importance of Search Engine Optimization and the best ways to implement it. Will be a lot of work, but not difficult.
  • And lastly, my very full belly is on my mind. But it won’t stop me from eating the chocolate covered raisins I bought at Cracker Barrell.

Peace out !

Almost Fiesta Time for Fundanoodle!

In just two weeks, several savvy women will be gathering in Charlotte, NC for the first annual Fundanoodle Fiesta! We will come together for three days of networking, learning, sharing, shopping, eating, drinking, and celebrating. And I just can’t wait!

Twice during the conference, I will share my talents with these inspiring women. Because I’ve been with the company since their pilot program in 2015, I am one out of four Ambassadors chosen to speak briefly about our methods for selling, planning events, and marketing. I can’t be sure but I think I was also chosen because I am the turtle of the group. This means that I am building my business very slowly, as opposed to some who hit the ground running and are knocking it out of the park! Our CEO, April Whitlock, loves to remind us that “This is a marathon. Not a sprint.”

It’s a good darn thing.

When I officially started this direct sale business, I was also in the middle of writing my first book, so needless to say, my time and energy was split. Sometimes, Fundanoodle took precedence. Sometimes, the book did. Somehow, I’ve managed to do fairly well in both areas. Nobody’s getting rich any time soon here, but it’s been fun and rewarding.

My main contribution to this conference will be my yoga class for the team. I am so excited about that. We will be tapping into our second chakra for creativity:

Yoga for Creative Energy – Fundanoodle Ambassador Libby Blumberg

Libby will lead the group through a 75 minute yoga practice based on the second chakra (energy, life force). We will warm-up, do standing poses and balances, do one or two restorative poses on the floor, then finish up with relaxation and a guided meditation. The practice will be based on unleashing our creative souls. Libby will use essential oils and gentle presses at the end of class to integrate the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of the body.
