One blogger’s road to somewhere Fun & Lucky
Once upon a time, some fellow co-workers & I (early on in my sales career) headed out for one of our happy hour outings. An ‘elder’ told a story of a previous barber shop visit he’d had of how a few of the old blokes there reminisced of a pal who had passed recently. They all went around telling tales of their friendship with him and ended by using one-word or a short phrase to capture the man’s essence: Solid, a jokester, a story-teller and the like. This ignited our Happy Hour with a challenge of choosing titles for each other and voting on the labels… thus *FUN* Maria was coined. Despite the tagged trait, some are still good friends of mine.
I kid, I kid.
I don’t think it’s probably too surprising to also share that I’ve always LOVED to play games~ board, billiards, darts, euchre, poker, casino games… you name it.
I came, I played, and sometimes, I even conquer.
In addition, my efforts haven’t been in vain~ I’ve won multiple trophies, awards and Mucho Moolah over the years, so the newest nickname that’s been given to me by some of these same friends and some new ones as well, is the *Lucky* one.
But along with these upbeat monikers, comes real life. Which can include mishaps that appear as~ down days, speed bumps that feel like mountain ranges, and one sucker punch after another. Navigating the choppy waters with my Special Needs family life, alongside a full time sales career, and good ol’ life lessons can feel anything but fun or lucky.
So EVERY SINGLE DAY, I pull up my big girl panties and allow some soul-searching moments to flourish, reset and recharge my mindset back to a place of Zen… with any luck, that is.
So if you feel inspired to, please join me as I sift through the sands of life. BC I feel guided to share ideas, give hope, shed some light or simply state my opinion on this prism’d world through my eyes.
