Why a Butterfly?

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

It is probably the question I am asked most… Why a Butterfly??? It always makes me smile – probably because of the looks I usually get along side the questions, almost as if to say “What I really mean is… you don’t really expect us to take your business seriously when it is called anything Butterfly do you???”

Well yes, as a matter of fact I do!

😀

The Butterfly is a symbol of change and of growth and I believe in the neccesity of both in order to achieve true happiness. Too often we get caught up in who we were or who we are and we forget all about who we could be or worse, who we really want to be. When I started doing Mary Kay many moons ago, I came across a quote from Mary Kay Ash – one of the most successful businesswomen of all time and it said, “Worm, Cocoon or Butterfly – it’s the same life, CHOOSE!” And that pretty much summed up my philosophy on life.

We all have pasts – some worse and some better than others and we all face unique challenges – no one is spared pain and difficulty, no matter how it may appear. And while we often have no control over what happens to us, as kids or even as adults – we definitely can choose how we let those events affect us. While we may be victimized BY others, only we can allow ourselves to BE a victim.

Everytime you get overwhelmed by work and bills and chores, volunteer at a homeless shelter. when you are lonely or afraid, volunteer at a crisis center.

Perspective is an amazing thing and the Butterfly reminds us that no matter where we came from, no matter where we are, we all have the potential within us to be the beautiful and happy creatures that we were designed to be. That power is in all of us and only we can choose to use it or ignore it. And that’s why I surround myself with the image of these strong and graceful creatures that overcome their modest beginnings and painful challenges to be the beautiful being we see.

So I guess the question is…

Worm, Cocoon or Butterfly… which do YOU choose?

Welcome to our new site!!

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

I am so very excited to be able to launch this new and approved website! Scott Kasprick of Reaxion Graphics has done an amazing job of designing it and after three months of working with me – he hasn’t quit yet so you know he must be a great guy!!

We are goinmg to working out some bugs, looking for errors and responding to comments and requests as we go, so please feel free to let me know what you think, what items you would like to see and if you notice any issues that need to be addressed!

Everyone knows how much time I spend online on other sites, discussion forums and working with clients via email so I decided to simplify my life and create this blog and our discussion forums while still maintaining the personal contact and interaction with everyone that mean so much to me! I look forward to some intense and amazin discussions, answering questions and hopefully motivating and inspiring everyone to live the life they were always meant to live!!!

Remember: When you change one thing…you change Everything!
