I’m Back…

24 Sep

Good Evening to All,

My sincere apologies for not writing sooner. It has been very hectic in a good sort of way since we returned from vacation. We arrived, did laundry, went grocery shopping, went running to the store to find school supplies, ironed, cleaned house, went to bed and that next morning after Labor Day we went to work. Of course we then went back to the normal routine of getting up early, packing lunches, dropping off children and then commuting to work. It’s incredible that by 8am I feel ready to face the day.

Let me tell you that our Holiday Line came out and it is simply irresistible. Oh, instant gratification on the smells – DIVINE, the new products, the packaging, the incredible prices and promos going on. Unbelievable, I feel a shopping frenzy coming on, bring it on baby!  🙂

On Monday night I spoke with a client and she asked me to showcase the products at last night’s Gala Event to kick off the Dominican Fashion Show and Parade this coming Sunday. It was an honor to have been invited to share with these incredibly nice people. I love being able to work my business while building relationships. I had the chance to chat with clients and meet new people who I know will become friends. It was definitely an incredible evening and although I am very tired today it was rewarding.

Not only do I get to build relationships but I get to teach people on the harmful effects of the sun and chemicals on skin. There’s nothing better than showing people the difference between a lotion that is penetrating your skin to nourish and moisturize versus a product that is occlusive and whose long-term result is premature aging. When people look at me in amazement at what I am telling them I always smile. Hey I just turned 41 and many people wouldn’t guess it. Results, that’s what we all want. Knowledge is Power and it is very important to learn what you consume internally as well as topically, especially when your children depend on you to protect them from anything harmful.

Speaking of, since we have soccer practice tomorrow I need to get to my bed and on Sunday I will be at my sponsor’s home where she is hosting an event for anyone interested in joining this incredible company. If you are interested in joining my team or know of someone that is, please contact me. I am always willing to teach others to learn about natural products while earning an extra income.

In Harmony,

End of summer beginning of a new season

4 Sep

I write these words from my hotel room, it is 10:42pm and I have just finished packing everything in the suitcases, (or should I say thrown in) combed through the room to  make sure nothing has been forgotten, checked in via the airline website, and now with not a moment to spare I decided to write and express myself. This family vacation has been absolutely incredible. We had so much fun and needed this time away, yet it is now time to go.

We were able to share with our children the fun of playing at the beach and pool, under the blazing sun. We also reminded them how important it is to share with family which we have not seen in quite a while and encourage them to love these people who I love so much even though the distance separates us. I feel it is so important for them to acknowledge that even though they do not have frequent interactions with these family members, these people love and adore them. My husband had so much fun and actually confessed to me that he was so happy I had insisted we take a vacation. It gives me so much pleasure to know that he appreciated my insistence, even if he didn’t in the beginning. 🙂

I know we will think of the wonderful times we had as the plane departs the runway and heads for the sky. Ironically, once we reach our destination, the memories are stored in the back of our minds to be brought back up when I download the pictures. I am so thankful that we took this vacation.

School is now upon us with Hannah so it is time to hunker down and prepare for the late nights working on projects and daily homework assignments and after school sports. Nicholas is starting his pre-K in a couple of weeks and we need to give him time to adjust although he is very sociable so that shouldn’t be an issue. The darling Bella will be sad when she realizes neither sibling will be with her but she’ll be fine. And us, the Parents? Well, we will go back to our regular schedules of our children, our jobs, and our business opportunities. I like to prepare for December Holidays from now so that there’s plenty of gifts to go around.

I bid you a good night and to my family and myself a Safe Trip Home.

In Harmony,

Happy Birthday to Me!!

26 Aug

Good Morning World,

41 years ago today I was born. I must say it was an exhilarating day for my parents as they were overjoyed to bring me into this world. This morning I woke up with that incredible feeling of fulfillment. My children ran to me singing happy birthday and there was plenty of love to go around. This is life! I also received a nice bundle of cash from my hubby which of course made me very happy. He told me to pamper myself – and I plan to do that – Oh, yeah!! We will also be going on vacation this weekend for a much needed time off under the sun. I have no complaints, life is good. I wish you all Harmony, Peace, and Love on this day.

Life Interrupts…

23 Aug

It’s funny, blogging, that’s what I’m referring to here… When I completed my last blog, I was so happy and proud of my GREAT accomplishment, heck it’s not easy to start learning how to do something and then actually do it. You understand? But, I did and it felt great. Of course, then I realized, I have to do it again, and again, and you understand where I’m going with this right? Then my cousin calls me to congratulate me on entering the internet world, as if I was coming out of the dark ages and into the light superhighway internet world. Which I am and then I ask him what he thought of my blog. He gave me some great insight which I will implement soon and some important critiques which I also need to address. I became nervous because now I know people are reading what I write, how will I interest them and keep their interest? He tells me to write about me and my life. So I laugh as I think back to his words because I remembered when I was younger how I thought it would be great if I could write a book on my life based on situations I was presented with. I like to say, Life Interrupts…

Last Sunday I was getting ready to write my blog keeping in mind that which Hugo had told me, when I started feeling ill and had to stop since I ended up sick again. Of course, when you are sick, have 3 kids, have to crawl out of bed to dress for work, and push your own business, well, it isn’t easy or pretty, but you do it. Why? Because you have to. The simple answer is that life interrupts. I’m thinking wow, I just got over being sick and being out for 2 months and here I go again? This time my will is strong and my determination to overcome this is too great. I have children that I need to raise on a daily basis, I need to make sure I go to my job so bills can be paid, and I want to grow old with my partner. Now I sound selfish, don’t I. Why do I not mention my partner, my lover, my husband who is remarkably helpful and my pillar of strength? Because no matter how great he is, when I am sick, it becomes all about me. 🙂 The important truth here is that I am getting better and I figured let me write before life interrupts yet again. So now I’m on the computer writing as fast as my thoughts come to me – don’t want to forget anything. Wondering if anyone will be able to decipher that which I would like my words to convey. But as life is life, all problems have solutions, health improves, and then we go to sleep hoping for a better tomorrow and to awaken to a brighter healthier day. So until my next blog, I leave you in harmony. 🙂

Acne – What to do, what to do

5 Aug

Acne, that dreaded word that we learn in our teenage years. Then when we think it is a distant memory it hits again in mid-life. What to do. Well, the first thing is not to cower in shame or disgust, although some grow so big and ugly that it just can’t be a pimple. Or so I try to convince myself. Of course, there is always humor to be found in this type of situation, after the face has cleared up again and there’s not a blemish in sight. How vain, yes? This same situation happened to me not more than two weeks ago. It turns out that I am taking a high dose of iron, and while that in itself has many uncomfortable situations for the body, it seems to squeeze the excess out of my face in the form of pimples. If I was reading or hearing this story from someone else, I would be laughing so hard I’d fall off my chair. Yes, I have this terrible manner of laughing at these types of situations – after all isn’t laughter the best medicine. Of course, I still find humor in this because I can. My face has gone back to its normalcy and all because I continued my daily skin routine and added in the acne kit which I have now put away. Yes, it feels great that I will be 41 years young this month and know that I again beat the acne. For now anyway, there’s still more iron to take.

Enjoy your evening,

Zamira
