I just wrapped up the month in Phoenix this past weekend for a Beautycounter Leadership conference, and it was pretty much the perfect way to end March because the conference was all about celebrating ourselves.
While it was so great to connect with so many of my friends that I’ve met through Beautycounter and this business what I’m left with was how I felt after leaving the conference: it got me thinking about what I could do better, what I could improve upon, and reflecting on my own weaknesses and shortcomings. With all of those thoughts running around, I *also* took a moment to tie it back to what we’ve been talking about all of March.
No matter what you do, no matter how successful you are, or how much you achieve, we ALL have vulnerabilities and things we are working through – we just need to try be kind and easy on ourselves!
SO, I’m thankful that this weekend made me reflect and process, and ultimately be able to move forward with more confidence that I have what it takes in all aspects of my life. So friends, that goes for you too! Vulnerabilities aside, you have a unique set of gifts that nobody else has, and you deserve to pat yourself on the back and embrace or work past those perceived vulnerabilities. Nobody has it all together, remember that!
What to expect this month:
Coming up this month on Lexi’s Clean Kitchen, we’re loving on the earth! While we are always concerned with creating clean and healthy recipes to nourish our bodies and switching and using safer products, we’re also aware that what we do in our day-to-day life affects this planet.
