Oh The Places We’ve Been, Now on to What is Possible

August 9th of 2002 changed my life forever with one small gift, a Signing Time Video.

Original Signing Time VHS

I join the email list, then attended a playgroup where I told Emily Brown I should just sale the Video for them. I sold them out of the back of my car to anyone who wanted to learn more about why I was signing with my toddler. At the time there was only one VHS. I filmed for a commercial that never ran, but feel even more in love with one mother’s mission to help others communicate with her child.

I started participating in weekly chats where I met the most amazing people. There was a group of us that started volunteering for outreach events and became close friends. So close we even got together a few times for a weekend retreat.

In June of 2005 I became an employee of Two Little Hands Productions. Now 15 years later, today is my last day as an employee of Azevedo Studios/Two Little Hands Productions. It has been more than just a job, it has become family. It has been an opportunity of growth and personal development.

Over the last 15 years I have worked with many amazing people. I have attended many outreach events and meeting amazing Signing Time Families. I help start and run the Signing Time Academy meeting many incredible Instructors who have become dear friends. I ran my first half marathon as part of team “Strong Enough”. I have assisted at many concerts and the Saturday’s Warrior Movie Premier.

So as I sit here looking at pictures from the last 18 years of my time with Two Little Hands Productions. I am grateful for all the memories, the friendships, and the love. It is with tears of joy that I move on to the next chapter of my life.

I will continue to share the benefits of signing. I will continue to share Signing Time, so if you have are not familiar with Two Little Hands Productions you can get a 14-day FREE trial to My Signing Time Digital Products by clicking here.

Now on to what is possible

Monday, June 15, 2020, I will be running my own business as an Emotion Code Practitioner, Essential Oil Coach, AromaDance Instructor, Mindful Movement Instructor, Food Blogger, and doTerra Wellness Advocate. In other words, I will be creating my own future doing what I love most which is severing others. The biggest thing I have learn in my last 15 years is that one person can make a difference in the world if they just take the first step.

Thank you for the memories!

Kindness & Beyond

On September 4th doTerra along with Leon Legothetis, the Kindness Guy, invited its Wellness Advocates and customers to join the 15 Day Kindness Challenge. I took on the challenge and I received mixed results.

It was so amazing to be a doTerra Convention where the Kindness was contagious. I witness so many people opening doors, zipping up open backpacks, sharing, and more. My doTerra Team had kindness kits for those in need that had bottled water, food, and hardtack candy. It was awesome to see the reactions as we handed them out as we walked down the street.

During doTerra Together Convention Leon was one of the Keynote Speakers. I was inspired. He said, “Make people feel seen.” So I want you to know:

I See You

He told us to share our pain because we are all human. Knowing that there are others who have or are going through what you are going through is often beneficial. I know I have found strength from other Domestic Violence Warriors. Each of our experiences are different, but I have learned something valuable from each one.

My favorite quote from Leon was, “True Wealth is not in your wallet, it is in your heart.” Kindness is FREE. Kindness is as simple as a smile, a complement, a hug, etc. When you are kind it everyone wins. You don’t know who else it will effect, but it changes lives.

He also talked about being kind and gentle to ourselves. As he was talking recognized areas in my life that I can improve.

I loved when he said we could ask his ex-girls friends and then went on to say, “I may not always be nice, but I can do my best to be kind.” That is profound to me.  It brings to mind forgiveness. Being kind to ourselves and others requires forgiveness when we are not nice.

I look forward to daily finding new ways to be kind. I also look forward to hearing stories from others.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Violence Against Women - Break the Chain

Violence Against Women – Break the Chain

*Trigger Warning*

Triggers are different for everyone. You never know when they are going to show up. I am sharing in hopes of helping others. The One Billion Rising Video is a graphic depiction of violence.

If you need immediate assistance call 911 or your country’s emergency service number. For a complete list of resources click here.

It is time to break the chain. It is time to stand up and be counted. I know that abuse and violence don’t discriminate. All ages, genders, races, countries, and religions are affected. The One Billion Rising movement focuses on Violence against Women Globally.

To The Broken

Screams in the night
Silent cries you don’t hear
Souls begging for help
Bodies writhing in pain
Agony Tearing up flawless skin
Broken children of the night
Here’s to the Broken
The fighters and Believers
The misunderstood people
The world’s true face
The children who wonder where things went wrong.
Smiles Painted on Masks
Painfully stating “I’m Fine”
When what needs to be said is “Save Me”
Scars that want to be butterflies
Nightmares that want to be dreams
True color of the years
Here’s to the people who wonder where they belong.
to the unloved children
Here’s to the Broken.
because their heartbeats slowly fade to nothingness
