I love a good reason to throw my friends together and have the opportunity to cook for the people I love. What better occasion than the official signing of the buy and sell agreement for Lifeology.
The build up to the exciting moment when Greggie and I gathered our friends together and chose our Robbie and Knight to be the witnesses.
The build up to the evening was nothing short of all the reasons why Greggie and chose to start Lifeology in the first place. Our company byline is ... wait for it coz I just freaking love it ...
COURAGE, CONSCIOUSNESS AND A SENSE OF HUMOUR!
My golly gosh ... I've replace me really wanting to say 'Holy F#$@ with My golly gosh, by the way!
So, my golly gosh ... if ever I've needed all three of those ... it's been over the past few days.
Firstly, there are meetings happening left, right and centre ... not that I'm complaining! I'm so excited that we are finally stepping out of the foundation phase and bringing everything to life.
As 'project me' goes I'm so proud of myself. I have gone from being that workaholic at the beginning of the year who had to plan and plan before I could go to a meeting or teach a class. Now I can feel this free spirited energy that can't wait to go to a meeting to meet the new opportunity and see where it's going to take us.
We had one of those meetings today. On the way I kept thinking that we had to be on top form so that we could sell ourselves to this guy and give him a million reasons why he should hire as to motivate his staff and make a difference to his clients.
Somewhere between trying to decide between thai green curry and home made quiche, while still moaning about how freaking cold it was and nattering about life ... we got hired. What? Yep ... we got hired!
Then ... with a bit more jabber jabber and a push of confidence ... we have a meeting set up with my Knight and him and I'm offering advice on all the social networking I do. Once again, just by being me ... I got hired once again!
Now that's what Lifeology is all about ... that's what courage is all about!!!
I'm teaching ... Greggie is teaching ... and we are teaching together. Sometimes it flows like clockwork and other times I let my brain get in the way and I fall off the wall and have to scale my way back up again.
It was actually hysterical. Greggie asked me to explain something to a client and my brain froze ... something that I know beyond textbook ... something that I live ... well it vanished from the brain. What point was that exactly? Oh yes... Be true to yourself.
Well ... that's an?interesting?point considering Lifeology's point of consciousness is playing havoc on my life.
Why ... oh yay, I get to answer why!
Let's see ... the cute boy who flirted with me at the soccer and made me feel like the prettiest girl around. That guy ... the one who wanted to sweep me off my feet and carry me away ... that one ... yep, he kinda avoided accepting my Facebook friend request. Why ... oh, because he's got a girlfriend!
I was fine about it in the beginning ... but then the chaos in my head began. I went from thinking he was so awesome for telling me the truth ... to freaking out that he had no intention of ending an unhappy relationship. I went from putting all my fears aside to not being able to get them off my mind for like one freakin' second. I went mad!
Mad is allowed in a situation like this ... that's what the sense of humour is all about.
That's where I'm so grateful for what I do and the gift that I intend to give to the world. There are always a million reasons to laugh.
Yes ... I'm wounded and I'm?disappointed?and I'm also being totally hasty because I don't know what someone else is going to choose ... yet I still laugh. ?I laugh at the thoughts in my head. I laugh at my ego and the confusion it causes. I laugh at what fear can do. I laugh at how irrational life can be. I laugh ... and laugh!!!!
Back to courage!!!!
Back to pulling myself together and being grateful for all the things that I have and all that the things that I am. Back to knowing that this guy isn't the one, but the one is out there ... because I want the one and I deserve the one ... I mean ... I'm a damn fine cook! I got so much love to give ... I'm a little loopy, I'm this young at heart kinda girl ... woman ... girl!
And that's just one day of what Lifeology is all about ...
Thank you to my precious friends for joining Greggie and I and making this night so special. We laughed ourselves silly while I fought on?courageously?against the ego in my head that spent the whole night waiting for a call from a boy ... that never came ... But consciously ... I knew it never would!
