Word of the year

I’ve never heard of using a “word of the year” as a guide until recently, but when I did hear about it- I immediately knew what my 2018 word was going to be. A word to guide me and motivate me towards my goals. I’ve been in a very transformative period of my life for the past year – I’ve grown personally and professionally but it’s only left me craving more transformation. I’m obsessed with being the best possible Sarah I can be, in all areas of my life: the best wife, mother, employee, business owner, daughter and servant.

So it’s only fitting that my word of 2018 is GROWTH. I’ve got this word on my screensaver, my phone background, written in my journal, on my vision board- and other random places around my home and office. Anytime I see this word it’s just a small nudge to keep pushing through, that any type of resistance is an opportunity for growth.

I would love to hear your word of the year and your reasoning behind it!

Something magical happened to me today…

Have you ever had something happen where there is no other explanation for it- it was just magic?

I had one of those experiences today- if you know me, my life is very serendipitous- I have little magic moments quite frequently. But today-even though the end result was something insignificant- how if happened was nothing short of magic.

I’ve been doing a lot of mind work lately, all having to do with the law of attraction and (I live my life by these principals) so for this to happen today-it was perfect timing.

Here’s what happened…

I had a lady call me this morning that was a customer at the last show Sixfourteen participated in- Mistletoe Market- she bought a bracelet that I didn’t have, but I wrote her name down and told her I would get one for her and ship it- but totally forgot about it- So I went to my wholesale supply store where I usually purchase these bracelets with my friend Carrie. I call this store the “crack store” because it’s like going to a drug store- the hardcore drug store- there is so much to choose from and it’s easy to get addicted… I never leave there with less than $500 in merchandise- at wholesale prices mind you… that’s A LOT of crack!!

We searched for this particular bracelet for 10 minutes (like a needle in a hay stack in that place, there are literally over 1 million items in this store- makes type-A people have serious anxiety just by walking in the door…) We couldn’t find the bracelet, so I grabbed something similar hoping my customer would be ok with it, but wasn’t happy I couldn’t deliver on my promise… We were about to leave and Carrie is rummaging through some bins on the floor- I close my eyes and say to myself- “when I open my eyes, I’m going to find that bracelet…..”

I opened my eyes- and the first thing I saw was THAT EXACT BRACELET!!! It was literally a foot away from me, in the random bin on the floor that Carrie just went through 10 seconds before I closed my eyes.

I had chills that wouldn’t go away for 5 minutes, and have them again as I’m typing this. I couldn’t believe my eyes…

Magic bracelet

I’ve been really digging deep into mind work, law of attraction and self development lately and one of my morning routines is mantras that I say to myself or out loud- each morning I say this one particular mantra.. “something magical is going to happen to me today….” And each day-something magical HAS happened!

They may be very insignificant life events, but they are pure magic in my eyes. I am 100% convinced in the power of the mind and the power of positive thinking. This event has stirred my mind up even more and has challenged me to find the magic events that happen every day and share them.. Hopefully I’m able to inspire someone else to create a little magic in their life..

Summer reflection

Summer 2017 flew by way too quickly and I feel like I haven’t had time to process it. I quit a job, I took a couple months off work to spend with my son, started a new job, travelled to Florida and Las Vegas, sparked up many new friendships, spent quality time with my husband at the lake, and many other significant events that are too long to list.

I continue to put irons in the fire, but the hours in the day remain the same. This is something that I complain about when I’m in the moment, but when I have time to sit back and reflect I realize how truly blessed I am to be overwhelmingly busy. I don’t think I’ve said the phrase “I’m bored” in 2 years- and I am extremely grateful for that.

The next couple months are going to be a whirlwind, but I’m ready to take it head on- I’m traveling to New York City for business, my sister is getting married, a friend is getting married, my son has basketball games every weekend, junior league events are beginning to take over my life-and prep for Mistletoe Market should have already begun-on top of wholesale orders and holiday specials- I’m not sure how I’ll do it, but I do know I will no longer look at my full schedule as a burden or hassle, I will make a conscious effort to be present more often and I will count every single event on my calendar as a blessing.

Cheer to fall and packed schedules!!

It’s finally here…

Over the weekend I submitted the very last college paper of my 17 year (undergrad) college career. The emotions that surged through my body when I clicked “submit” were unreal. I got chills. I had tears in my eyes. I have tears in my eyes typing this. Going back to college as an adult is hard. I have boasted about how easy this has been for the past year, but that was a lie. Looking back, the last year was a complete blur-but I wouldn’t trade the lack of sleep or the endless hours in front of my computer writing, reading, and enriching my life for anything. The last year My life has been comparable to a tornado, but it was totally worth it. I am SO PROUD of myself-and that’s not easy for me to admit. I have maintained a 4.0 GPA somehow and for those who know me-you know I’m not a scholarly individual-nor am I the type of person to stick to anything until completion. This degree is solid proof to me that you can do anything you set your mind to.

If you wonder if you should complete college-stop thinking about it and JUST DO IT! I guarantee you will not look back on that decision wishing you hadn’t done it. 

Congratulations to all the graduates of 2017!!
