I Was Strong Enough

The other day, I was in the pool bathroom and as I stood at the sink washing my hands, I happened to look in the mirror next to me and looked in to the face of my ex-best friend's sister.  We said hello and exchange pleasantries and then she asked me what I was doing for work.  We didn't talk but a few moments and then went our separate ways. I have to say, I did not even ask about her sister, even though in my head I was wondering about her.

The truth of the matter is, I do miss her and I wonder about her all the time.  I wonder if she feels the same way. But from reading her blogs, she may have moved on.

Which is the way it is supposed to be. Since I was the one who put the final end to our friendship.

You see, we had a very complicated relationship.  We really did fit together.  We completed each other.  We accomplished a lot together.  We had fun. We laughed and people looked up to us.  We had dreams.

But then there was drama and the final straw was after our trip to Vegas when she invited her real "best friend".

I'll just call the "real Best friend"  KDB.  For those of you who know what it means, no snickering, ok go ahead and laugh. It really is funny!!!   :-)

 KDB was the down fall for the whole trip, she complained and made my friend drive back to St. George instead of staying in Vegas as originally planned.

So the rest of us, who did stay in Vegas as planned, stayed and played a little longer.  Needless to say, she had a miserable weekend and then wouldn't talk to me anymore.

I never knew why. I tried to find out why but she wouldn't answer me.  So I thought I would give her time.  But then she de-friended me and our other friends on facebook and I knew.

So I wrote her an email and told her to never contact me again, that I had had enough of her drams filled friendship.

She is still friends with KDB and  in fact they stayed in Vegas together.  I am still trying to figure that one out. I don't know what KDB has over her, but even though I supported her 100%, KDB always won.

But it still doesn't matter, I miss her.  And if she contacted me, I would at least take a moment and answer her back.

If she is reading this... well I hope she is anyway...

"Sometimes you have to give up the life you planned to find the life that is waiting for you"

There comes a time in life when you walk away from all the pointless drama and people who create it...and surround yourself with people who make you laugh so hard that you forget the bad and focus on the good.

Life is too short to be anything but happy.

Every year at this time, I think of all the hundreds of thousands of women who are finding the perfect evening gown, then packing and heading to Dallas Texas for the annual Mary Kay Seminar.  I used to be one of them.

It is a celebration of the Consultants, Sales Directors and National Sales Directors achievements for the year.

Seminar was so much fun!! There are classes, dinners, music, dancing, fun and the biggest best night of all...the Awards night, which was like Miss America and the Emmys all rolled in to one.  It is the last night of the 4 day event.  The Mary Kay Company does this 5 times through out July and August.
Every Year!!

Day 0
Get your packet with all your ribbons you earned, then go on the factory and Mary Kay tours.  Usually it was your Area Awards Night.

Day 1
Opening Session...Meet all the NSDs, Friends of Tyme preformances  Usually a luncheon that was earned for recruiting.   After it is all over then it you had your Unit awards night.

Day 2
Classes all day  then it was time to get all primped and pretty and dressed up for the long awaited Awards Night....

Day 3
Closing Session and head home...

And of course this is all done in 100* and 100% humidity, wearing black skirts, White shirts, hose and heels if you were a consultant, or the gorgeous director's suits...

But I think the best part of the whole trip, is the fun you have with your pink sisters.  I have so many fun memories. Of course my first year was the best and most memorable. 

Oh, Did  I mention....And NO SLEEP?

So to any of my MK sisters...  Follow your dreams!  I know you will do it!!

Most people live and die with their music still unplayed. They never dare to try.

How Can It Be...

How can it already be July 11?   I don't ever remember the summer moving this fast.  Do you?  Oh wait maybe it did since we are all adults now...

With summer flying so fast, that means school will be starting...again.  I am not sure I am ready for all that just yet.  I am loving my job and they are trying to find a way to keep me, but I will only stay if I can keep making what I am right now. Otherwise it will be back to USD.  Now don't get me wrong I love working with the deaf kids.  They are so much fun and I love them all.  But I am tired of having to worry about having a job or not. This usually happens in January when the state legislation goes in to session and tries to fix the budget  by cutting it in education.  This time it was to legalize aerial cake fireworks. (Hmm, still trying to figure out that one...) It just gets old after a while.

So now I am trying to decide... Rise or USD?  Its all going to depend on who shows me the money!!
