Yesterday I found myself in NY City, with Stacy London (TLC’s What Not To Wear) and her entourage, being primped, styled, made-up and photographed for a magazine spread on Style for Hire – not my average Sunday.
As I was driving back last night, I was thinking to myself, what the heck just happened? So I hit the mental rewind button to dissect the moves that landed me there.
If I had NOT put my big girl pants on and signed up for the original conference with Style for Hire in October, I would NOT have met Stacy or have been trained, certified and invited to be a Stylist in her network.
If I had NOT responded to her email three days ago asking me to come to NY for this shoot, I would NOT have had this experience – and quite the experience it was!
Yes, it would have been way easier to not inconvenience myself with 8 hours of driving in one day. Yes, I paid for two tanks of gas and parking in Manhattan. Yes, I had to function outside of my comfort zone. Yes, I had to worry about butterflies in my stomach and not falling off 6-inch heels. Bottom line – no big deal!

My new mantra – Think Outside The Box!
