Thought Provoking Thursday
What is one aspect of your life that you never expected to be there?
I NEVER expected to be a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant.
What? You expected an intense, life-changing answer?
Let's stop for a minute and consider the source. We are talking about a woman who, prior to becoming a Mary Kay consultant, washed her face with water. Just water. And only when she was in the shower. [Don't I at least get points for knowing that I wasn't supposed to wash my face with soap??]
I didn't wash my face, I didn't use moisturizer (much to Prince Charming's chagrin. He regularly admonished me for it.), I didn't wear makeup and I surely didn't use supplements.
And then one crazy day, worn down by my mom (who wanted a girls day out), I attended a Mary Kay event. I was blown away by the way the products made me feel and I knew that I liked them enough to actually take the time to start washing my face and maybe, just maybe, start wearing makeup. I became a Mary Kay consultant that day. Craziness, I tell you.
Fast forward fourteen months and I have the clearest, softest skin I've had in 31 years and a fabulous career that I love. Not only do I love what I do but I get the opportunity to continue to be a stay at home mom to the Monkey while still contributing to our family financially. In a word? Awesome.

Now it's your turn! What do you have in your life that you never would have expected?
