Keeping up the positive

A month or so ago I wrote to Jen and Kate. Both of them are my friends through PartyLite. I finally received an email from Jen the other day. We have been emailing back and forth since. Today I find out that she is going through a divorce, had to move into a room, and had to take a month off from PartyLite. Not only did she lose her team of PartyLite girls but she also had to step down from Unit Leader to Team Leader because of it. At first I was sadden by all that she has been through. Then I kept reading her email.

Have you ever been able to hear the person talking as you are reading their email? I am told that people can hear me. Maybe it is because we write exactly the way we talk. My friend Melinda is very good at it...LOL!

Well, I could "hear" in Jen's email that she is seriously ok. She was the same upbeat, motivated, person I used to attend meetings with at her home. And, she is sincere. I can totally tell that it is not an act. This is a huge reason why she has been an inspiration to me. Nothing gets her down for very long. She is back to doing PartyLite, working full time and totally keeping it together. All I can say is that I hope I can be her if I ever have to go through any major life changes. She will be fine because she makes it that way. I know from the past that this is not an easy thing to do.

I am wondering if she read The Secret. I only ask that because she seriously lives it everyday. You can tell by her positive attitude.

What I am thankful for today:
my store
Chinese food

clean laundry (now that my washer is broken)
my children
"Friend's moments" PIVOT! PIVOT!!!!!!! LOL!
new customers
