So I have a confession. This business is HARD! I love it, but it's HARD! You know I'm doing this by myself and I don't always want to make this juice. I find myself often standing on the front end of making a large order and think to myself "Nope...I'm taking a nap." But then I look up hours later and I've done it ALL by myself...back aching and feet hurting, covered in beet juice or carrot juice, but feeling victorious! And then something else will happen and I think again "Man f this!" (This is just me being honest y'all.) I'll say things like "I'm not doing this anymore." or "I'm not taking any more new customers." and as soon as I think it someone places an order...or I discover the magic of home grocery delivery...or I'm accepted into a program that will help me achieve EVERYTHING I've dreamed of doing with Vivid. So then there I go juicing again. I can't get away from it...It's life now and as much as I sometimes complain about the hardship that comes with realizing this dream of mine I REALLY do love it! Which is great because the universe won't allow me to stop. Not now...I still have dreams to manifest...
Guess what today is?? My anniversary! 2 years ago today I sold my first juice. 2 years ago today I discovered a level of support I've never experienced before. What a ride what a ride! Vivid has transformed me in ways I'm so grateful for! It has been the perfect addition to a journey of discovery for not just me, but so many others as well. I'm so blessed to be in the position to help people in this way.
The other day a woman told me she eats "like one orange a month." *GASPS!...A MONTH!??* That's why I'm here. That's why I do this...We have to take better care of ourselves! And we don't have to just focus on oranges...although I think they are one of the most delightful fruits ever created...but insert any other fruit or vegetable and there are so many other people just like that woman. I'd like to say I've had a hand in changing the mindset of so many people though. Man as I type this I wish I really knew the number off the top of my head. We are all learning to eat to live instead of live to eat. Chewing is overrated! And when I say that I'm referring more so to the things we chew. Many of us go through life on autopilot...constantly moving, but never really putting much thought in the things we put in our body. It does our bodies and minds such a disservice to operate this way. I hope in my service I am helping my customers...my Vivid family...to be more conscious and intentional in the choices we make regarding our food. It truly does fuel us and helps us to run the race called life more effectively.
Thank you all so much for all of the support. The past 2 years have been amazing! The growth has been tremendous! I've made so many connections along the way. We're still not where we want to be though. I promise this year will be even better. I'm up to something. Stay tuned...*wink wink*
We've become a society that prefers stories told without words...in pictures with tiny captions that are oftentimes left for the viewer(s) own interpretation(s). It's sad actually. The eloquence and beauty of words are literally and figuratively being lost in translation. Everyone is in such a rush to post, that abbreviations of words and phrases are common knowledge. I've made a promise to myself to write more...to read more. I want to exercise introspection as much as I do extrospection and I want to connect and share with all of you more. We'll talk about juice a lot (obviously), but it could quite possibly be a random thought I want to share. That's life isn't it?...Completely and totally random even when are best intentions are to stick to the script. It's all improv. I'm just going to go with it. And in this way perhaps I will also be able to express my undying appreciation for all of the support. I'm still blown away by it all. It's moving in a way I've never felt before. Which is confirmation that this juice life is exactly what I'm supposed to be doing. So grateful...so excited. Please please do stay tuned! There's so much more in store...
This is the first juice I posted.😊 I woke up this morning reflecting on this Vivid journey. In just 6 months the growth and support has been nothing short of amazing! On this first day of 2016 I want to thank all of you who've decided to take this journey with me. None of it would be possible without Team Vivid juice! I'm eternally grateful for all of the support. Stay tuned for new developments in the world of Vivid as we embark on a new year. I promise it'll be something you won't want to miss!
Started feeling like I was coming down with something...my throat was bothering me, ears started aching, runny nose, sneezing...Officially woke up with a cold yesterday morning.😷 Rather than run to the store for meds I ran to the store for fruit and vegetables. Juiced carrots, apples, beets, and grapefruit. After just one drink I'm feeling almost 100% better.
