A Dog, A Snail, and a Life Lesson...(ps. there's a coupon code too!)

The other day I went to go put the Macdog outside for his afternoon trip to the bathroom! Normally, he dashes out the door without reserve, and I struggle to get him to come in.

Well, not this afternoon.

He saw a MONSTEROUS, THREATENING, HORRIBLE, GROSS...tiny snail stuck to the door.

And he got all grumbly about it. He wouldn't go past it. Even when I encouraged him...

Want to see the video? ps. I recorded it on my phone and somewhere some of the graphics got a little mixed up...oops :)

After watching this, I realized that I often act like Mac. When something unknown is before me, even something small, I refuse to go out. I don't want to take the chance of some weird, unknown thing pouncing on me.

Even when I have people assuring me that it's okay, I am still afraid. Even when I have a God that is always, always trustworthy, I ignore Him.

But, guess what folks?, I don't want to be like Mac and that horrible snail. I want to sniff the snail, trust the doorkeeper, and enjoy the outdoors.

That is why I decided to finally take the plunge and go the Influence Conference. I'm still wrapping my brain around the idea that I'm going to a blogging conference (little old me!), but I am genuinely so excited about it!

Yes, I feel a little unsure about entered a room filled with a bunch of (wonderful) ladies that I don't really know. I'm a little nervous that people won't like me in "real life" or think that I'm too reserved or quiet. Or, maybe I'll be too talkative (which often happens when I'm nervous!)...

But, I decided that I wasn't going to miss out because of all those unknown "snails" and decided to take a chance and dash outside!

So, to celebrate, I'm offering a 20% discount to all of you!

Yep. 20% percent. Until the end of August. Whoop!

Use this code during checkout: INFLUENCE20 :)

I just listed some new stuff in the shop too! Here are my favorites :)

Happy Wednesday!
