Day 38 – Mediocrity to Greatness!


This was my day today!  Working at a company that strives to elevate the world from mediocrity to greatness.  I knew it was going to be a good day.  I made sure to smile when I woke up and say a big THANK YOU for another new day before I even stepped out of bed (which is in the living room at the moment – random but fun!).  I set the intention before my day even begun that it was going to be a good day.  I learned today that 6:30am yoga classes are too early for my liking.  Man that was tough!  My yawning was becoming annoying and I was so relieved when it was finally time for savasana – the pose where you just lie there and relax.  At least I tried!  I’ll have to give the 6:30am class another go.  I still haven’t been able to sleep much becuase of all the excitement, so I’ll just blame it on that for now.

I can’t say enough good things about Lululemon as a company.  I’ve been working at the head office for the past 3 days now and getting a pretty good taste of all the different components that make up this massive and brilliant team.  That is definitely what it is – a team.  I’ve never seen anything like it.  I had that feeling that I’m sure the kids in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory had when they were allowed into the factory before it was let open to the public.  You can just feel the creativity flowing out of the place.  Excitement fills the air, along with endorphins from all of the healthy and upbeat people who work there.  I love it.  I had a chance today to work with the design team for the products coming out for fall.  A sneak peak!  I can’t believe how much work there is behind the scenes.  It definitely has been a great opportunity, and I’m stoked that I’m wanted back to help with more!  I could get used to working there!

Again, I’m not really sure where my life is flowing right now but I’m just going to continue working hard and following it.  Who knows.  All I know is that I too am striving to enhance the world to greatness.  We all are by being the greatest we can in each and every moment.

I’m going to keep flying high right now.  I know it won’t last forever but there’s something in me that knows THIS TIME I’m going to continue to constantly fly higher than I was before.  I can feel it.  I’ve put the work in and now I feel like it just might be paying off.  You should have seen me going through my breakup last year – all you have to do is read my blogs from Australia this past December and you’ll see how much of a rough time I was STILL having!  But now I’m okay.   I’m in a good place.  Happy alone and happy to be focused on ME.  As for wanting a relationship right now??  Nahhhhh.  No time for that!  I’m loving life too much on my own with my new unfolding career, my wonderful family and friends and just spending time by myself.  I do happen to know however that when you don’t want something, when you LET GO of wanting something too much – well that’s when it comes flooding in.  You know what that means.  Not yet mister champion!  NOT YET!!

Thank you Dad and Rebecca (and Stella!) for donating all of these socks!  My sock lady partner in crime, Clorinda, won’t be able to come hand them out with me this time so Laura will be my sock lady date!  With all of this rain, the people living in the downtown east side will be extremely grateful.  I’m looking forward to bringing a whole bunch of smiles and warm toes our way!

Smile with your heart!

  1. Hi Jenn!
    I’ve been reading your blog since you “sprinted” on to the Lululemon website… the entry/interview caught my eye, as I love running in beauty-full Vancouver (I’m training for my first Boston marathon with 38 days and counting!) and am also a yoga devotee!! Reading your blog has been a true inspiration: your good energy (as well as authentically sharing vulnerability and the not-so-great days), positive attitude and big love of life is infectious! Thanks for writing from the heart. Wishing you every success, deep happiness and infinite possibilities :)

    • Boston in 38 days??!! MAN I”M SO HAPPY FOR YOU!! It will be the COOLEST experience of your life!! The city is just a buzz of excitement. You’ll have to let me know how it goes!!! I wish I was going again!!!! Thanks for taking the time to post!

    • That’s awesome!!! I can help you as a new Lulu girl and you can help me as a new nurse! hahaha. It’s definitely a great balance! Definitely think about working there – I love it! The store near me has a full time nurse who works there on her days off and says she finds it to be a really good balance. And I love your blog!! Checked it out, it’s awesome!!!
