I solved my own puzzle!
A big part of the reason why I stopped blogging for a while is because I felt like something was missing. I didn’t know what, exactly, but there was definitely just something lacking from my day to day life. I wasn’t facing any challenges, other than the fact that I didn’t WAAAANNA. And you know when you’re just… not happy with something? I definitely had that feeling hovering over me like a dark cloud that was about to pour rain any minute.
I wasn’t WANTING to get up out of bed, and drag myself to work, and then deal with people I DIDN’T want to deal with. That “tomorrow’s a brand new day” crap just wasn’t working for me. Every day felt like such a struggle + sometimes wasn’t worth it. And I tried, believe me, I TRIED! I needed to do something, so, when a job opened up at an office that my cousin worked at, I jumped on the opportunity to start something NEW + CHALLENGING!
A few weeks into that job, after I had just been pumped with copious amounts of information + learned how to basically RUN an office + understood medical jargon that goes way beyond my Grey’s Anatomy medical training, a friend of mine who I’d taken acting classes with + is a fellow blogger + total sweetheart approached me with an amazing opportunity that was really hard to turn down…
I COULD BE MY OWN BOSS + HANG OUT WITH AWESOME LADIES + WEAR MAKEUP AND GORGEOUS LIPPY’S ALL THE TIME!
I could do those things by being an independent distributor of LipSense + SeneGence products.. so I signed up. If I didn’t make any money off of it, oh well — there’s a 20-50% discount in it for me either way! But something just.. clicked. I’d been toying with the idea of becoming a distributor for other companies before (like Scentsy), but even though I LOVE their products.. I didn’t feel the same ‘click’ I got with LipSense.
Would it be really cheesy to tell you at this point, that this new little endeavor was the missing piece? Eh, I’m gonna do it anyway.
This was the missing piece.
And I didn’t even know it at the time!
I just signed up, got super excited by all of the beautiful lip colors, and now I’m placing orders + have my own client base + my own lip business + I’m like WHAAAAT?! because I’m having SO MUCH FUN and it doesn’t feel like work at all AND I have met the most amazing ladies who just have the sweetest things to say and are the best squad to work with (holy run on sentence, Batman!)!!
And now, I suddenly feel refreshed and inspired to write + create content and want every single one of my friends to know about LipSense and it’s amazing staying power AND moisturizing power!! It’s literally taken over my life (and my living room/bathroom counter!) and I couldn’t be happier! I feel like my own self again — the one who gets excited about things and doesn’t put so much pressure on herself, and it’s so nice to have this Cassie back! There’s something about this community of ladies… just the best!
I’m gonna wrap this up before I get too sappy..
I just wanna say how thrilled I am to be back!
