People get tired of hearing me say “Rodan+Fields has changed my life and my skin”. I know they tire of me talking about my business. But when something good turns your world upside down, in a loving and tremendous way….you can’t help talking about it. Right?
By a long-shot, I’m not the only person seeing life improve through RF…and I like hearing about what Rodan+Fields has done for my friends as much as I like thinking about what it’s done for me. Some of their lives have been changed in more incredible ways than even I can comprehend. Earlier in the month, a friend and Rodan+Fields business partner shared a very personal look at the transformation of her life. She and I come from similar, broken places…we’ve both had our self-esteem ripped and tattered by words attached to the ends of fiery arrows. And worse. Those days are gone now. Oh it’s true, the “word memories” do surface every now and then. But thankfully, they are quickly vaporized when I think of the sweetness of today and the promise of tomorrow.
Please read my friend’s words… I believe you will feel her gratitude in them. And know that what we do, you can do, too. Your life can change, you are not destined to live financially strapped in a pit of despair. If you’re interested in learning more, you’ll find my contact information at the bottom of this article.
Thank you for reading…
Best Wishes, Danita
“This is Reflective and emotional. So… just skip on by if that’s not your thing.
I had a surreal moment today. Today I dropped my daughter off at her piano lessons and sat in my parking spot for a bit while I talked on the phone. I glanced up and caught my reflection in window of the storefront. Overwhelmed. That’s me sitting in that shiny white Lexus that Rodan+Fields pays for. (*he said I would never have anything.)
I walked into the bank to fill out some paper work and the young man asked me.. “what do you make per month before taxes”, it was necessary for their paperwork. I stumbled over my own words as I said it out loud.. “um.. this month..$XX,XXX and it goes up ever month usually.” He stopped and looked at me and said.. “what do you do?” And then.. I shared. Just a little part time work changing skin and lives and you can see my business online. I gave him the full story. We are talking later about that. (*he said I would never amount to anything or have anything.)
I received a call from one of my business partners today thanking me through tears for sharing this business with her and how it has changed life for their family and how she has been paying their mortgage with her RF income and how it has relieved a burden. I cried. (*he said I was good for nothing)
I received another call someone working diligently in their business to retire themselves and they are making confident strides in that direction. She is bravely moving forward. Oh my heart is thrilled for them.
I walked in our lovely home filled with sunshine and full of life. I am thankful.
EXACTLY one month ago I was on a plane returning from San Francisco after being treated and treating my team to an amazing trip. I stood on stage and shared a little piece of my journey before 350 people. (*he said I’d never go anywhere.) This is real life. I can’t believe this is my real life. It’s not what I was told it would be. It’s not even what I thought it would be, but it is REAL life. The one terrible picture is of me trying to keep from the snotty ugly cry on the airplane coming back from San Francisco. I was listening to the two songs in the picture and I could barely hold it together. You only see glimpses of this journey but it I wish you could KNOW. I wish you could KNOW how this can change life for yourself, your family and others. I wish you could know the support and encouragement. I wish you could know the satisfaction of watching someone succeed beyond their wildest dreams and having the tiniest part in it. I wish you could know what it’s like to hear the dreams of others and pray with every fiber for their success. This business causes you to face yourself and I get it, that’s not easy for everyone, including me. But this is REAL life and I’m experiencing all of that.
I invite people on this same journey because I’m living it’s effects. I want this for others. I’m overwhelmed. God is good.
That (*he) who painted such a dismal picture for me. Well, I had long since forgiven him but sometimes the word memories float to the surface. I know those words are from the liar (John 8:44). I know TRUTH. I know who God says I am and I know that HE provided this opportunity for me to walk in and work in and I will do so in a way that honors Him. It doesn’t look conventional for a missions family…but my mission in living in HIS plan and walking in the path that HE has laid out. This is my Ephesians 3:20 path. I may cry tears of thanks. I may laugh that God has used a little poor country girl to do some incredible things and go some incredible places…but I KNOW His plans are good. I trust HIM.
I’ll be over here in a “teary thankful, overjoyed, overwhelmed, feeling FREE, Loving life, laughing at the wildness of the blessing”…mess!”
