Just a Girl Who Decided to Go For It!

People often look at me and wonder how I got here. It is the most asked question I get, like somehow I figured out some secret and ended up as an entrepreneur following my dream, rather than continuing on at the job that I worked at for 18 years. Really there is no secret. And when I look back on the journey I've taken and how far I've come, it doesn't feel like anything actually happened that was that crazy, or extraordinary, or even that planned. Things just slowly evolved to take me to where I am today. With each decision I've made, I try to go in the direction of what makes me happy because what brings me joy, and what I am passionate about, is what I need to be doing. "I'm just a girl who decided to go for it." Giving Gifts fills me with love and there is nothing better, than the feeling of doing what you love. My friends often say that my eyes light up when I'm talking about my business and just the thought of it brings a smile to my face. I always feel like jumping for joy and dancing in the streets when a Giving Crate comes together perfectly. I can definitely be found beaming with pride (often)! It all looks easy and well planned, but really it is the hardest thing I have ever done and every day is one step forward, one step closer to living my dream.  

On those days, when things seem just awful, when everyone, and everything, seem to be conspiring against me to make me fail, when I feel like I just can't work any harder, or stay up any later, or face any more frustration, or on those days when balancing the kids and a business seem impossible (like today), I just need to look at this quote and remember that "I am just a girl that decided to go for it." There really are no expectations. There really is nothing I need to prove or achieve. There really is no definition of success, other than my own. I just need to continue to do what makes me happy, and continue do it with lots of love and everything else will fall into place, just like it has up until now.

I hope you too are a "girl who decides to go for it!" Find what fills you with love and do it! Your passion is the greatest gift you can give the world. 

With much love and gratitude I thank you for joining me on this journey.
Thank you for Giving Gifts,

Pretty amazing what you have built, and being a super mom to 3 little ones while doing it. Keep giving and great things will continue to come your way.
