What's in a moon?

The moon brings me into a different state of being.

That giant's fingernail, a sliver of goldenness, hanging low in the sky.

Or a full white orb. Blazing its' light like a beacon in the wee hours of the morning.

I'll stand outside, regarding the moon from my porch, wondering at it from the garden, wherever there is the best view.

Or I'll grab our kids, pajama'd and ready for bed, and show them the sight, pick out some stars, and enjoy that special moment of moonlit cuddles.

The moon makes us realise that we are small creatures, yet part of something bigger. It's the best reminder to pull us out of ego and into the picture on a grand scale.

Lately I've been watching a loved one, helpless, as they chart their course into illness and ours into grief. It's a journey with no return. We are sad, impossibly sad, but also grateful for small moments stolen together, for family time, for the kind words from friends, and appreciative of the little things that mean so much.

We don't have much time, and none of us know when our clock stops. It feels at times like these, kindness, love and care makes the world go round.

At times like these, the moments we can spend watching the moon and feeling it's unique pull, somehow helps. Reinforcing that it's time to seize the now, and let your people know just how much you love them.

Fave Quote:

"Love always protects
Love always trusts
Love always hopes
Love always perserveres
Love never fails."

What are we here for

I'm not on this earth to be popular. I'm not here to be a pleaser. I'm certainly not here to whinge about my life and do nothing about it.

I'm a do something kinda gal. I'm here to make a better life for my family and loved ones.

I'm here to give back. Im here to serve and help others - should they wish to help themselves first, that is.

I'm here to find out what true happiness is and find ways to live it every day.

Pyramid my arse.

One year ago, I decided to stop swapping time for money, and start a network marketing business.

I decided to make some time for it in amongst the other office work and businesses I run, and supported by my gorgeous thriller-writing husband, who knows what reoccurring income is all about (and how hard you have to work for it), and got started.

A year is going to pass whether I start something new or not, so it was fantastic that the natural energy I had for the business combined with consistent learning, being coachable and being open, oh and that special ingredient determination and elbow grease, is now paying off.

From a year ago, there's now a network of thirty of us doing this business, some fast, some slow, as well as a network of clients numbering in the hundreds who choose our pure, safe and beneficial 500-strong range over the toxins that appear in store bought products.

Still though, there's something we continue to come up against, time and again, which is the preconceived idea that a network marketing business is akin to running a pyramid scheme.

To that, I have to say - quite politely, but firmly:

Pyramid my arse.
