At the risk of sounding ridiculously corny… I have to say that I am definitely living my best life right now. I’m working fuck hard, but playing just as hard, my only grumble is that it’s simply unfair that there are only 24 hours in each day – and why do we need to sleep so long to function anyway?!?! Whoever designed us didn’t think that one through too well!!!
So I haven’t blogged for a while because last month was beyond phenomenal at The Boutique. We have all run our little (or large in my case!) asses off! We’ve had amazing events and talks, we’ve had incredible parties, I am quite frankly euphoric! There’s no better word to describe how I feel right now. It seems like the universe is giving me everything my heart desires – I’m in a really good head space at the moment!
Something has struck me over the last couple of weeks though. Normally, with the nature of our boutique, we are the ones that leave a mark on the people we’re interacting with. I don’t know if you know what I mean, but sometimes someone you don’t know can leave a mark on you because something about them impacted you in such a profound way that it actually changed who you are? A lot of the time this is the case with ladies who we meet in store, and over time, some have even become friends, such is the nature of the experience at The Boutique.
Lately, I find myself impacted, marked and changed by the experiences, more so that ever. I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older, more mature, or what? But I have such a deep appreciation for every person who crosses my path lately. I have so much love for you all, just wish I had more time to share it.
Something else weird – in the past, those who know me know I really don’t make a fortune in my business (YET!), I moonlight as a webmaster on the side to make extra money, and I have 2 housemates normally – just to ensure I can afford to live the lifestyle to which I’ve become accustomed AND continue to do what I’m passionate about (The Boutique). Usually, it’s a struggle financially. I have to budget, I have to turn down invitations, and if there’s an unexpected expense (like a R1000 vet visit – thank you Pork Chop!) it’s a bit of a disaster. But the last couple of months, despite having only 1 housemate at the moment, and spoiling myself more than often, and entertaining more than often, I’m really managing financially! There seems to be a little magic leprechaun in my wallet stretching my pennies at the moment and I LIKE IT! 🙂
Wishing you all euphoria and little green leprechauns!
