Hi friends! I hope you’re all doing well and enjoying the start of this Thanksgiving week.
I wanted to share something that has been deep on my heart, but I’ve been too proud…or let’s be really honest, too fearful of sounding too desperate.
Ever since becoming a stay at home mom I’ve struggled with the feeling of not enough. This started before becoming a mother, but has become a bigger source of insecurity since leaving the workplace (I was a middle school art teacher for 6 years).
Now that our son is in school, our family has an extra expense that we truly believe will benefit our son. And now he has the opportunity to add an extra day to his schooling a week which will help him even more!
I am so passionate about helping women feel beautiful in their own skin. That is why yoga, my artwork creating self portraits of women, and providing safer beauty for friends and family through Beautycounter are important to me. VERY important to me.
These modalities are a source of income for our family, and while I’m passionate about helping women find confidence in themselves, I want to feel confident knowing that through helping others I am helping provide for my family.
And there is nothing wrong with admitting that…but for some reason it’s hard to write that out.
The reason I share my heart about my career paths is that I want you to know where your money goes when you take a yoga class, commission a self-portrait, or buy beauty products from me.
Your money goes to providing for my family. And that brings me so much joy and happiness knowing that I am also financially taking care of my son. It doesn’t have to be that way, but I know for me it helps me feel good…it helps me feel beautiful and confident.
Thank you for allowing me to get that off my chest and out in the open! I have these gifts I’ve shared with many, but I stifle the drive to pursue more for fear of looking desperate. Why is it that when we have a gift that doesn’t have a degree tied to it we feel unworthy of using it for financial freedom? I might be the only one who feels this way…but I doubt it.
So I’m ready to take OpenHeart Wellness to the next level. Friends, this is my business. And for this Thanksgiving week and weekend leading into Cyber Monday I am sharing my business with you!
Yoga videos are coming soon! My goal is to film them and release before January 1st. These videos will focus on our bodies but more importantly the truth about who we are as women and who we were made to be. My favorite part of teaching yoga is providing a space where truth can be felt in the body and in the heart.
I will be offering my Women Are self portraits for 10% off! Starting today and concluding Monday 11/27 midnight. Click here to read more about them and gift a woman in your life who needs encouragement and truth about who she is. To order reply to this email.
Also, sales from my Beautycounter will enter you into a drawing for a free lip gloss! Purchases need to be made between today Monday 11/20 through Monday 11/27 midnight. Link to my Beautycounter and their amazing holiday collections here! Three entries for signing up for Band of Beauty (the flyer above explains it all. Make sure to include Heidi Pasley as your consultant). This month BoB’s free gift is No.1 Face oil…and friends…their face oils are my FAVES!!! This one brightens your skin, leaving you looking more alive and honestly, I don’t wear foundation or face powder after applying this oil. It’s. THAT. Good!
Thank you for allowing me to help you on your journey to feeling beautiful, more confident, and healthy. I love love LOVE helping women find their authentic beauty. And for helping my family. That means the world to me!
