PostSubject: Let's Share something special   August 27th 2011, 17:43

I was asked by a woman in our town, I would call her influential, to be part of a woman's group. It's to empower each other, network and most importantly talk about the good things in our lives. I think sometimes as women, when we talk about the wonderful things in our lives people think we are bragging or we are self centered and that is one thing that we aren't doing in this group. You know, shout out the amazing things going on in your life because when we work hard, we deserve it, right??!?!!

SO, I thought it would be neat to share the good things that are happening in our lives right now with each other. I really believe what we put out there in the universe is what receive back so if we can lift each other up with positive things, maybe we can get some of that back.

What do you think? Maybe we can make it a Monthly thing? Or keep a thread going so we can come in here and shout it out for all to see.

I'll go first...

Recently an instructor quit at the school were I teach. I was asked to take it over and wasn't sure if I could find the time (I have a big trip coming up for work which I'll tell you about soon Wink )

Something told me to do it, that it's a class I am familiar with and some of the students I have in my Wednesday night Marketing class. So the asst Director of Education came to see me to ask me (she had already emailed me) on a night I was subbing.

She said to me, "we really want someone seasoned in there and one of our best instructors and I thought of you immediately." I had to hold back the tears I couldn't believe it. She NEVER gives compliments. So the head of my department was teaching that night, too, and she took me over to the class to see the other instructor and get the book and materials and when I walked in the door the students STOOD UP and started clapping and cheering b/c they found out I was taking the class.

I cried on my way home that night I was so happy. I really really put my heart into those classes and I really love doing it so it made me so happy that they see that.


Okay. Who's next?!?!?!?!?

That is great Ellen!! That is so gratifiying isn't it when they compliment and students are happy your teaching them.


I don't really have anything to specifically share. I am excited to be on the Design Team here and love working with Norma and Ellen and the ladies here. I am currently doing a program for weight loss and have lost 38 pounds and I am helping women and men with there progess within the program and they were so happy to have me back from vacation and tell me I am inspirational. Which makes me feel good that I can help them out. I have a temp job that is temp not only weekly but will only be for a couple months and the head photographer gal was impressed and said I was a very fast learner.

yay on the 38 lbs!! that's awesome.
and a standing o from the class? wow.

I'm nowhere near that kind of achievement at the moment...

all my good stuff is wrapped up in my children right now. my oldest (7) takes piano lessons each week ( I homeschool her as well) and I'm always second guessing myself as a parent anyway, but the schooling adds to that second guessing stuff.
well at her last piano lesson she began learning Beethoven's Fur Elise - and it blew me away how fast she picked it up, and with what feeling she did it. I didn't realize my little girl had such feeling in her! It was beautiful. And she taught me when we got home from lessons.

That's the best thing for me so far this year Smile

Kathleen its great to feel proud and be part of the accomplishments are kids have because they are part of us and we help them grow as people.

Thank you Sherry, it makes me feel good they say those things about me in the weight loss group.

Like Ellen said, its hard to toot your horn, people do think your bragging at times.

I really need to focus on that more. I run and run but nothing comes off. I guess I need to try something different.

That is so neat. That must be beautiful to watch and hear. It gave me chills just reading it.

Congrats, Ladies!! Such exciting news from each of you!

Wow, Ellen, you sound like the energizer-bunny! I knew you did tons of stuff here and in the sb industry, but had no idea you also taught! (AND you run?!) Very impressive! Congratulations on your new teaching position!!

Ksimmonds, Losing 38 pounds is FABULOUS!! I will say (in the kindest way possible) I'm very jealous of you! Smile Would love to do that..! Good for you for inspiring others!

Alligatorally, this is a big accomplishment! My greatest accomplishments are through my children! They wouldn't be where they are without YOU, and everything you have instilled in them! My oldest son plays the piano and now even performs at parties we throw. He can sit down and play gorgeous music (that he just makes up, impromptu!) for several hours at a time. People love it, and it sounds like a fancy, upscale party! (And we get him for FREE, lol!)

Way to go, Ladies!!!

My personal latest accomplishment is that I've opened a new ad agency with my friend of many years. We used to work together at an agency years ago, and now that my kids are older, we decided to give it a go! Last week I wrote my first ad/marketing proposal in 14 years (yes, my oldest son was born 14 years ago!) After I spent several days working on it, I was proud of myself! (Yes, writing 3,721 words in one day was quite an accomplishment for me!!) My pitch went great and it actually felt good to "be back out there..."! I don't want to work a ton (as it would interfere with my scrapping & pinterest time, ha ha!!), but it was nice to feel connected again... We'll see how it goes!

Tracy your comment on the scrapping/pinterest time cracked me up... I so understand!

Congrats to you on the ad agency! Just saying that sounds so cool. "I own an ad agency" is a neat thing to get to say. I'm jealous.
And thank you for your kind words and sharing about your son, I'm so excited that my sweetie loves music, I cannot wait to have a party and let her perform Smile

Oh, thanks Ladies! Let me assure you that it is on a very "local" scale -- definitely nothing like Madmen, lol! (Although I'd love to have a little John Hamm eye candy in my office!) lol!
