I remember writing a post a few months back when I wasn’t in the best of moods to be blogging about something inspiring. I had challenged myself to blog everyday so I HAD to write something. This was one of those, ‘man, why did I make this goal?’ days. It was just one of those days, we all have them. Anyways, my mom had given me a quote that week that was short, simple and would do the job for the day. “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”. Well, what can I say, life right now is giving me a whole bunch of lemons – lululemons that is. I GOT THE JOB!!! I can’t believe it. I’m going to be one of the fit models for the lululemon website! I still can’t believe it. Who the heck am I? I’m just your average Vancouverite who loves yoga, fitness and hugging trees (cookies and coffee too). To think that I will be representing them even more feels AMAZING!! My bum will just be a mouse click away when you’re not sure which pair of hot pants to get online. Haha. I’m still in shock.
I called JC as soon as I got the good news because SHE was the one who found this job posting online a few weeks back. THANK YOU JC!! It’s overwhelming how things just work out. The friend who randomly finds a job posting that she thinks you’d love, then sends an email, then gets the interview, then gets the job, then WHO KNOWS WHAT!! I don’t even bother anymore to try and figure out how it all works out, because it just always does. Here’s the cutest picture of Quinn that JC sent me right after I texted her with shaking hands, half in shock that I actually got it! As quoted by JC and demonstrated by the Quinn-man (love it by the way), “when life gives you lemons, just go ahead and eat the whole frickin’ thing!”.
I’ve been given a whole bunch of lulu-lemons and I’m loving it. I had my first training day at the Kitsilano store today, which is the original store for any lulu fans out there! I feel like I’m the perfect fit for this company right now. I sported a gentle, secret smile for the majority of the session just sitting there soaking it all in. I have a feeling there’s going to be some pretty cool blog posts coming your way. This company is so fueled on personal growth and development it gives me goosebumps to be apart of it. Perfect timing for me, because I feel I’ve taken a bit of a break from self growth. I’m stoked to learn more, so much more about myself and how to continue to be better. How to encourage others to be better. How to help bring the world to greatness. So thank YOU for reading this and supporting me. Get ready because this is gonna be good!
I guess my little tid-bit of inspiration today is to BELIEVE that you can have it. Visualize, feel it, work hard and be the kickass, confident person that you already are. Set your goals bigger and your dreams higher. Believe that you are AMAZING. We only get one shot at this life, so why not start believing that you are a rockstar and start shining from the inside out. Do you want to look back on your life and wish that you would have done more, seen more, been more? NO WAY!! Shine from the inside. It all starts with the belief that you are one in a million. YOU are here with your special talents to enhance everyone around you. It all starts with one simple thought. “I AM AWESOME!”. Believe you are! I believe that you can be anything you desire to be. So dream big!
When life gives you lemons, dream up and create the sweetest, most daring & bold lemonade imaginable!
Smile with your heart!
