It’s been a while since I have done my Moments of the Week posts…so this will actually be a Moments of the Month post! Excited to get back at it!
Little Rascal Moment
This kid had my phone for maybe 2 minutes and managed to send a “You Better Work Bitch” Beyoncé gif to a former co-worker of mine whom I haven’t spoken with in over 7 years.
I went wedding dress shopping you guys.
Something I never thought I would ever do again. Wait…scratch that. This was not something I thought I’d ever WANT to do again.
But God has a funny way of writing our life stories.
I can’t wait to show you guys what I chose!!
Buh-bye muffin top!!
I finished the last day of the Ultimate Reset this past month and I’m feeling all cleaned up + energized!! Crazy what our bodies can do in just 3 weeks you guys!
Moment I Didn’t Think Would Happen
I used to put Cooper to bed + pour myself a glass of wine + and allow my tired mind and body to dream about my vacation fantasy…
And I’m sure my fantasy would likely be rather pathetic to most of you…but I’m going to share anyway!
GUYS –> I literally DREAMED of going to some totally secluded cabin in the San Juan Islands ALL BY MYSELF. I would only have a case of wine + ingredients to cook food + and a bag full of books from my local library. I would have no internet and no one would know where to find me.
I’d be like the Unabomber, only without the evil stuff.
– I knew it was a fantasy.
– I have never had family help with watching Cooper.
– I have basically been a single parent since he was born.
– I love Cooper more than anything…yet I will be the first to admit that being a parent is THE hardest job
So when Troy told me that he wasn’t able to come to Punta Canta with me because of a work conflict, I was so so sad.
BUUUUUUTTTT, I immediately pulled up my big girl panties and thought, “Hey Marion…maybe this is your time to do what you wanted to do before Troy came back into your life?!”
So that’s what I did.
I took my “mom vacation” in Punta Cana and I kinda owned it!
– I booked spa appointments like it was my job
– I read books while sipping on red wine
– But BETTER than my fantasy –> I had several members of my team right along side me in Punta Cana to keep my laughing nonstop thoguhtout the day.
My point is this:::
Your fantasy WILL come true. Might not be on your frame. Maybe not according to your original thoughts. BUT…it will happen. You just have to keep showing up to LIFE the way that you feel is RIGHT.
Raise your standard. Be that voice. KNOW that your “vacation” is coming. 😉
Thanks so much for reading!
