Thank you all for your sweet comments! It makes my day!
Happy New Year everyone! Itís going to be another fantastic year!
So Iím sitting here going over some logos and introís and stuff for Alissalive! Because Iím heading in to Boston tomorrow to check out the editing process thatís happening with my shows.
They wanted me to come in the following week, but I need to make sure this is heading in the right direction after seeing some stuff happening already. So, here we go, next phase.
But, can I just vent for a momentÖ
Dennis makes us juice this morning and then he goes in and turns on the TV and catches about 10-15 minutes of the news. Iím in my office that has a window to the sunroom where the TV is. So I hear a re-cap of Hilary Clinton and the press. One guy stands up to ask her a question and says ďHilary, we see a caring side to you with what youíre doing, (something like that, donít quote me, Iím so blindsided buy the next idiotic statement that I canít remember the first line, but hereís the clincherÖ ) But, we also see, and I also feel, and I just canít shake thisÖ a cold and calculating side to youĒ
Cold and calculating??? She aint sittin home baking cookies and darning clothes, buddy!!!!!!!
The WOMEN IS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT!!!
Ok, Iím through.
(Btw/ this is not a vote for Hillary, I just think this guy is watching a little too many Leave it to Beaver reruns)
So after that Iím fired up. Which leads m into my next rant. You gotta love Dennis. Iím going into an office of all men tomorrow. (Which is fine, I loooove men, but these particular men keep trying to tell me what to do! ) (I also totally get that I created hearing that this morning, by the way Ö) They are very nice, but they have different ideas about what and how this should look. So I called last night and told them Iím coming in to talk to the editor and tell him exactly how I want it and to brainstorm with them. They wanted me to Ďtrustí them and let them do a lot of it and then come in and see if they are on the right track.
Ya, right. Have they met me?
So, I see a logo that I very much dislike that was sent to me yesterday. And of course I freaked. So Dennis being Dennis and knowing me, started ranting about how he canít believe I havenít gone in already because at the beginning I told them I was going to be there through the whole edit and went on and on about how I was going to be there every step of the wayÖ. So I break down, saying ďI donít know exactly how I want it though, I donít know what I want the logo to look like, etc.. and they are going to think Iím a bitch if Iím in there every day, etcÖ So he looks me square in the eye and says ďhoney, stop the bullshit (HA! This is why I love Dennis!) You are the one who designed your sites, youíre the one who wrote the book, youíre the one who created the teacher program, youíve done all your logos and youíve done all your PR and got yourself on TV, and youíve created a whole show by yourself. Youíve bought real estate and youíve created other business, all of this without knowing how to do any of it at the beginning but by teaching yourself! So, what are you talking about? Youíre the one who has created this business and youíve never listened to anyone, not even me, tell you how to do it. Youíve always had everyone telling you to do it differently and youíve always done it yourself, taken chances and its always worked. Who cares what they think, itís your money, itís your show and itís your name. So grow a set of balls and go in there and donít take any crap from themĒ he then kissed me and hugged me and told me to turn off the computer and come to bed, that I was burnt out and just needed some sleep.
Oh my god, Iím sorry, but can I just tell you that I think Iíve not only met my soul mate but my match. I love Dennis so much and we are so connected that he knows me so well. I love that he doesnít let me linger in my B.S for too long. I started laughing when he told me to grow a set of balls. I know it sounds a bit crude but it was said in such a loving way, lol!
Iím usually pretty focused but Iíve been so mentally burnt out for a few weeks now. I love that I have people around me that remind me of who I am when I need it.
When it feels like Iím fighting for my way or Iím swimming an uphill battle, I have 4 very close friends that I can call anytime and just say, ďremind me who I amĒ. They always do and then Iím totally recharged.
So this is in gratitude for Dennis and my clan, who circle the wagons (thanksí Elaine for that visual, Iíll never forget it) and who Ďget meí. And thanks to all of you who send your loving emails and energy to me every day here. You recharge my spirit and keep my light shining.
So happy new year everyone!
May 2008 bring you joy, peace, happiness, abundance and everything your heart desires.
