The more crowded the world gets, the busier our lives get – there is a lesser probability for serendipity and surprises. Have you noticed that? We over schedule our lives – who we meet, who we talk to and who we do business with.
And then, just once in a while, if we get out of our comfort zones, true *magic* can happen. And it does – if we just hang in there long enough to get comfortable with the discomfort. Yes, that is the catch.
I did just that. Went on a 16 hour road trip to Utah with Jenny and roomed with 6 women in a huge 2 bedroom suite for 5 days.
My post today is like a journal entry – a reflection. I write about the people because writing about them helps me reflect in the person they are. I hope you will go check them and their sites out – because they all have something different to offer. And if you live in the social media world, they are women you want to know.
So here goes – (all pictures are taken by me)
Lisa – lovely soul, mom and artist. Lisa’s wildly successful jewelry business is a direct outcome of the passion she has to do good in the world and give back. When she talks, you see through to her heart.
Laurie – a powerhouse of ideas and execution. An entrepreneur extraordinaire and a pillar of strength that will make rocks move.
Cindy – a quiet creative that slows you down in a gorgeous way. ( She reminded me of a favorite cousin. ) Cindy owns the term “Simple Glamor” – a paradox that will want you to get to know her more.
Lucrecer – a clean heart, a shiny heart. A woman that has let life teach her how to dig her creative self and value it. She taught me that – time and again. And for that, I am thankful. Something tells me she is a very very special mom too.
Catherine – a passionate storyteller and a gentle soul who is not afraid to let you know her thoughts. Yet she is the most gentle in a strange sort of way. She is selfless to a point that irks me (yes, I love her THAT much). Go check out the story of her nephew, since she will not do so herself
Stephanie – a heart and brain that are eager to share, learn and teach. Ever since I met her ( at Blogworld last year), she has impressed me with her combination of smarts and heart. Steph stayed with us just one night – I really wish she had stayed longer.
And last, but my icing on the cake – Jenny – a sheer joy of life, a perspective that many lack and a sense of caring that the world could use just a little bit more. Her laughs filled my world as I roadtripped with her 14 – 16 hours to Utah and back. She is everything I wish I could be and cannot – and for that, I will always want her as a friend. How selfish, right? But I am sure she is alright with that – cause that is hoe she rolls
The next time you think life is boring or full of crazy heartless people, get out of your comfort zone and do something crazy – and hang in there.Okay? It will be well worth it, I promise.
