A client asked me this morning what happened yesterday to warrant my insta story about my heart exploding with gratitude...But it wasn’t actually anything major, just a series of pleasant moments throughout the day that I decided to be crazy grateful for 💞 Ryder only woke once during the night (there may have been Panadol involved #sorrynotsorry 💞 We ran ALOT in our 5.30am session and had the best girlie chats, which made me feel amazing 💞 I got to train again at 7.30am with my #rawpackbabes while trainer Jodi was on duty 💞 The vibes and people were amaze balls at all the group sessions 💞 I had a doof doof dance off with my #karmachild while one of her lovely friends almost wet her pants 💞 The same lovely friend sat with the little kids while they had a bath so I could catch up on work emails 💞 There were newbies at kids training 💞 Convos with my one on one clients gave me belly laughs 💞 New one on one clients signed up 💞 A heart warming post and subsequent supportive messages flowed on the private raw family group 💞 Two of our raw dudes tacked a blocked drain at the gym while covering their hands in plastic bags and dry vomiting #grateful #butbloodyfunnythough 💞 And Kobie forgot her lunch so I visited her school to the warmest welcomes from all the happy and smiling kiddies, a friendly reminder how lucky we are to have such an amazing local school.
So all in all, no “oh my” moments, just so much to be grateful for. I think my break from mindless Facebooking is helping me focus on my own life instead of scrolling through other people’s 🖤
Next on my list is an Insta clean out! So many people who I used to be inspired by seem to be advertising products so frequently now.

So this totally happened a couple weeks back... ⠀
As I was hanging out at our local park with my girls I got a phone call from an old friend... we hadn’t spoken in a while, 4 years perhaps Anyway... she started the conversation with "Sabrina... hey... you’re the owner of Scarlett Red Designs right!"... Nervously I said..."Um... yes... why what happened"..⠀
Suddenly I broke into a sweat... farrrrk! ...all these thoughts started rushing in my head so loudly I had to almost yell to quiet it all down!⠀
And then she continued and says... "I just had a young child pass a card to my kid at the park this morning... and it had your business name on it". I began to calm down a little whilst also thinking... why is a young child handing out my business cards!!... Then she says "It was a card telling me to SMILE and to pass it onto another person who may need it". She started welling up saying it was the most beautiful thing as she was having such a crummy day! ⠀
I then realised that she had been passed one of the kindness cards that we had been sending out with all our new orders…!⠀
Crisis averted... 😅 We chatted for ages, reminisced and made a time to catch up in person. ⠀
As I hung up the phone I couldn't help but well up a little too... it was so nice to hear from an old friend and better yet it was awesome that something so simple brought us back together!
I had recently shared this story with my mailing list & the responses with what you guys have been doing with these little packs have had me feeling all kinds of hells yeah! 🌈🧡
Each order that heads out comes with a pack of 5 cards... you can keep ‘em or share them around. They come in a rocking OPACK from @betterpackagingco 💫
... and there’s a lil sumthin sumthin cooking with these coming in the new year ... stay tuned 😉✌🏽🌈🌼⠀
