Happy Saturday! It’s the Saturday before Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for! •I am thankful for my husband and the fact that he is my forever best friend • I’m thankful for my family and the love and built in friendship they bring • I’m grateful for my jobs and to see the kids I work with progress • I am thankful for my home • Lastly I am so thankful I took the chance to join Zyia. It has pushed me to become a better Mikelle and to be ok with getting out of my comfort zone! Write down some things you’re thankful for below 👇🏼
🌟🔥Motivation Monday!🔥🌟 Disrespect The Impossible, this might be my new favorite saying thanks to Miranda Stacy Burcham!
What are you willing to do in your life to push out of your comfort zone Many people embark on a success journey and quit way too soon! They don’t enjoy the process, they don’t see success on THEIR time line!
For my Arbonne peeps, we are nearing the end of the month. This is when leaders are born! What are you willing to do to “Disrespect The Impossible” and make your goals and dreams a reality
Fake it until you make it, we all do that sometimes right!!
This was my face after teaching my very first class here! I look thrilled right! At this point I was just SO glad it was over, I was smiling through the adrenaline CRASH. Yep, crash! After class I crashed hard! There is an extra level of stress and anxiety for me that comes with doing something for the very first time. First time teaching this format. First time teaching in this location. First time teaching in front of my boss. Then, I also had a camera on me for someone to judge, I mean assess me, as a coach later.
There will still be some nerves next time, but nothing like today! Before class I stopped by the gas station and grabbed a Dr. Pepper. 🤷🏻♀️ Fully knowing it was a coping mechanism for my anxiety. It wasn’t a good choice, physically or even mentally. But, I did it anyways. I can own that! I took two sips before walking in...and it didn’t even help at all. But, it did lead to a great conversation with my kids. They called me out on it! (They are listening to me about making healthy choices 🙌🏼) This opened up the door for us to talk about being nervous, being scared and anxious. We talked about healthy options for expressing ourselves and seeking help. I shared that two of the best tools I tend to use are prayer and reaching out and talking about my fears. I explained, it’s ok to have fears, we all do over different things. I went on to share how we can take control of our fears by verbalizing them. When we share them with someone and get them out of our heads/hearts we take control! I shared how my ability to share with them in those few moments was helping me! It didn’t make it all go away but it sure helped. Before going in we all said a prayer together. Then after class the kids followed up with me all on their own. Such a proud Momma moment! I thanked them for their roll in helping me!
Next week these kids will be facing their own fears...first day at a new school!!! There is lots of excitement, but there is also some deep rooted fear among them. LOTS of unknowns! They won’t even see the inside of their new school until that first day!
Grateful for teaching moments! ❤️
