Over the last 3 years my life has transformed greatly in my personal life and professional life. It has been an amazing journey with a lot of personal growth that has been very self-revealing. As my business was just a business with Scentsy in the beginning, it has morphed into a lifestyle. Not the sales, the relationships. In the beginning it was about making ends meet and finding ways to stay above the water. It was a business based on sales, parties, and recruiting.
It didn’t take long for that focus to fade and for new focuses to arise to the forefront of my heart.
My life was by no means bad before Scentsy came along, but my heart was void of purpose and direction. I woke up this morning to learning of yet another SuperStar Director’s daughter dealing with a serious illness. This brings the total of four ladies with children fighting for their lives. From brain tumors, to respiratory diseases, to ovarian cancer, to leukemia. All of them children, and each one of them people I call my friend, my family. My role in Scentsy and it’s role in my life has gone from a business relationship to a personal relationship.
I realized this morning that despite the change in my life over the last 3 years I am so very grateful for the doors that have been opened before me. I am thankful for these women I call my friends and for the chance to pray for them and their families and they journey through these hard times. I know that if the roles were reversed that their hearts would journey with me as well, and I am grateful for the support system that has been offered to me. These ladies aren’t my competition, they are my friends, they are my family.
Today I am thanking God for his placing of people in my life, Scentsy friends and non-Scentsy friends. I am grateful for the chance to do life together. Often we get caught up in our lives; the sports, the concerts, the activities, the meetings, and so on. One day you wake up and find yourself lonley and isolated. It is important that as we journey together we remember that it is about long term relationship, one through the good and bad.
I love the way mother Teresa spoke:
“Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.”
We were meant to do life together.
We were meant to walk in community with each other.
Take the time today to re-evaluate where you stand in life. Are you walking alone? Take the time to build a support system and let others journey in life with you.
What is your support system comprised of?
