Do you ever forget what day of the week it is?
As someone who works from home and loves her work, I often think Thursday is Tuesday and Saturday is Sunday. Please tell me I’m not the only one.
This week I had an important interview scheduled with the lovely Michelle Ward, often known as The When I Grow Up Coach, on August 1st.
On Monday, I told my husband to make sure that the lawn care team wasn’t coming, because I had an important interview and I didn’t want the sound of the lawnmowers interrupting what I imagined being a brilliant interview.
I emailed Michelle earlier that morning to let her know how excited I was to chat with her later.
I got camera ready, spending extra time on my makeup and putting my curly hair into this super cute side braid.
I had thirty minutes before the interview to chill.
I’d already set up my video lights, checked the internet to make sure it was running at high speed and had hooked up my webcam and headphones.
I decided to catch up on a few emails before the interview. I saw one from Michelle and clicked on it.
There were a couple of short paragraphs but all I saw was the bolded sentence that said, “I have us down for tomorrow,” in response to my email saying I couldn’t wait to catch up with her today.
I did a double take. Say whaaaaaaaaat?
I opened up my planner and realized that July had 31 days in it and the next day was August 1st.
How I forgot this I really don’t know. How does one forget that July has 31 days?
I immediately replied to her email with:
“Hahahahahahahahahahaha…I had it in my head that today was August 1st. I forgot that July had 31 days in it. Can we forget that just happened? I’ll be there tomorrow…don’t worry!”
Egg on my face.
Luckily, Michelle is super cool and laughed it off and admitted that it was something she would actually do herself.
We ended up having a great chat yesterday for a really cool project that you’ll hear more about in September.
The reason I’m telling you this embarrassing story is because I didn’t let this ruin my day.
Because I’d gotten myself camera ready, I took the opportunity to hop on Facebook Live and chat about a topic I’d been thinking about a lot recently. It gave me the chance to connect with a group of women who follow me on social media and it was a lot of fun.
I could’ve gotten really frustrated with myself and given up for the day. I could’ve beaten myself up for looking “stupid” in front of someone I admire.
But, I really wanted to show off my cute braid…
Seriously, it was that good of a hair day.
Hopefully, I’ll have another good hair day today (we’ll see…we’re in the middle of a battle right now but I think I’ll win), because I’m going to jump on Facebook Live at 4:30pm EST (on my Blacksburg Belle Facebook Page) to answer all of your questions related to Sunday Society.
In less than one week, I’m increasing the price from $29/month to $49/month. If you get in at the $29/month price, you’ll stay at that price for the lifetime of your membership. So, if you’ve been considering it, now is the time to leap…jump…twist…bound…hop…join!
If you’re still not sure if it’s the group for you, join me on my Facebook page at 4:30pm EST and ask me ANY questions you have about Sunday Society.
And, just so you know, I have a really easy cancellation policy.
If you can’t make the Facebook Live and you think Sunday Society would be a good fit but you’re not 100% positive, just try it out. You’ll spend $29 (less than a nice meal out or a top at the Gap) and you can cancel your membership at anytime if you realize it’s not the right program for you. You don’t have to jump through a single hoop. All you have to do is email me that you want to cancel your Sunday Society membership.
I set up the policy this way because I don’t want you to stay in Sunday Society if it’s not the right fit for you. No you won’t have to sign a contract before leaving, you won’t have to show me any completed worksheets and you won’t have to prove that you’ve danced around your living room in a bright orange tube top. (Don’t know where that last one came from…but that would be much more fun than some cancellation policies, wouldn’t it?)
