Happy May! I love May as this past week was my birthday, it’s warm and sunny and lots of good stuff seems to be happening to me always in the month of May. I have to say that this week has brought a few exciting events to my life and I just had to take a moment to share with all. I have not blogged in a while and thought my wonderful network of friends might want an update.
My ‘Goal’ was set last fall as a result of being in a business that made me want to stay in bed every day. My clients were wonderful people, but the work I was doing made me feel sad, lost and as if my life was not heading in the right direction. This is where Kim Wesley entered my life with much support, help, encouragement and guidance. Kim is a special friend and truly like a sister to me. She introduced me to the career of being a Virtual Assistant. Through her mentoring and connections, I joined social media networks. She connected my life with people that have truly transformed my life. Together by the end of 2009, we had come to the realization that the goal was to exit the old, ‘yucky’ business as soon as I could obtain enough clients.
It is my extreme joy and excitement to announce that – Goals can be achieved and Dreams do come true – because this week I gave notice to my old, yucky business. I am now a full time, 100% Virtual Assistant! Woo Hoo! I love being a VA! It is one of the most exciting, wonderful and awesome decisions that I ever made (with great encouragement from my friends and family).
This year of 2010 has given me so many wonderful blessings, so many new friends and opportunities that are beyond any goal or dream I could have ever imagined by myself. It would fill a book to name each of the friends that have helped me, guided me and surrounded me with a community of love and support. It is my great pleasure to call some of these folks my clients, also! Hmmm… A book is not a bad idea. Maybe a future goal. It could be entitled “Every connection really does count” because that is how I feel. My life has transformed because the people that I have connected with have helped me, with no thought of what they were going to get in return.
My life is already filled with all of these opportunities, but in addition, I have been given an incredible gift this year, Mother’s Self Care – See Kim’s blog for more details – but the short version is that I was given a new extreme smile makeover. This week my new smile will arrive and by next week I will be experiencing a new me that I could never envision before. My new network of friends are teaching me to dream big dreams! It has given so much new hope to my life. Again, I could write a book to thank all the numerous people who I would love to thank over and over for this incredible, amazing gift, but maybe later with the book. Back to work for me, now. Thanks for tuning in for my dragonfly’s recent adventures 🙂
Since I shared – why don’t you – What exciting, wonderful opportunities are happening in your life?
