I always thought “things” were the biggest sign of success. I have found that to be FAR from the truth! I have had some people say some amazingly nice things about me over the past year. And I am actually starting to believe some of them 🙂 But knowing that I am helping people who found something in me that they had been needing in their lives makes me feel so humbled and makes my heart swell with love.
But sometimes, a sign of success comes in STRANGE packages!
Let me tell you about something I observed today.
I am almost 44 years old! That was my MIND BOGGLING observation a few days ago 😛 But let’s move on!
Today, I think it is odd that I made it to 43 years of age thinking that bed sheets are bed sheets. I honestly don’t think I have ever paid more than probably $35 for a set of sheets, and that was on sale and what I thought were a REALLY GOOD SET! Last weekend, while at Sam’s Club, I saw that they had Egyptian Cotton 600 thread count sheets ON SALE for like $69! I was like WTH?!?!?!?
But we really needed a new set of sheets. The thin little piece of elastic on the corners of the fitted sheet were getting pretty worn out, AND they are the only set I have left and have been using them for well over 2 years!!!
Well, my Beachbody Income is well over $500 this month, so I decided to get them! Between my FT job, Zumba, and Beachbody, I work anywhere from12-18 hours a day, and thought….MAYBE I deserve to have a nice comfy place to sleep for the few hours I actually get! 😉 So I bought them. I had just washed the sheets, so I got around to putting the new ones on today.
JUST WOW! I honestly always just thought that when you bought expensive sheets you were basically paying for a name, or just the extra thread at the very least! They are SO MUCH MORE! I was going to take a picture, but I don’t think it would even do them justice! They are a beautiful chocolate brown with the sateen look going opposite direction about every 3/4 of an inch. They are big enough to fully COVER our dual pillow top mattress and a 2″ memory foam topper with at least 18″ overhang on each side and 24″ at the bottom so I got to tuck in plenty enough to not come out EVERY night!
And the fitted sheet? it wraps UNDER the mattress by a FOOT, AND the elastic goes all the way around and is an inch wide!
Then we get to the 4 Pillow Cases! Yes, all 4 of my pillow cases will actually match for the first time I think ever. And inside of each pillow case is a pocket to keep the pillow from coming out! WHAT IS THAT??? AMAZING! That is what that is! 🙂
Now we get to how they feel against my skin. I have never felt anything like it! I thought the sheets at the MGM were the best ever, and I was hoping these would compare. They are BETTER! Soft. Inviting. Luxurious.
So at the end of the day, when I can’t possibly reconcile one more insurance EOB, help one more person, add one more number, write one more blog, pay one more bill, do one more workout, choreograph one more song, or even clean one more thing in my house, I know I will have that beautiful chocolate cloud to go to sleep in.
So, with all that said, I have to reiterate that I LOVE BEING A BEACHBODY COACH! I am still far from where I know I am going to go in this business. I mean seriously??? I get to help people improve their health and fitness and get PAID for it!!!
If you would like to come along on this adventure with me, I would LOVE to have you on my team. Maybe buying soft, fancy sheets isn’t a goal in your life, but think about it….if you had an extra $500 a month, what would you do with it.
I know my style, my personality, my “way” may not for everyone. But if you are willing to put forth the effort to make a REAL lifestyle change and do AMAZING workouts and eat a balanced nutritious diet including what is in my opinion to be the very best meal replacement dense nutrition shake ever made, contact me, and I will be here to help you as much as I can.
So, if you want more information, are ready to jump on board and join my team, or if you are looking for help to reach your personal health and fitness goals, please feel free to reach out to me. Because I would love to help you.
YOU have the power.
MAKE today GREAT!!!
