I need some good thoughts sent my way...

HerNameIsBuffy

1,101 views

I need you guys to be with me in spirit today...I'm about to do the riskiest thing I've ever done (and I've had sex on a second floor window ledge, so that's saying something)...just wish me luck that I can handle the repercussions, whatever they might be.

Even though...

which it totally could.  But...

Spoiler

and I need to be free from the torture of what ifs...my brain will stay itchy until it's resolved and this seems less risky that opening up my skull to pour calamine lotion in there.

So no matter how this shakes out the fact that I'm even considering this is so much braver than I ever thought I could be...

Spoiler

So why I am doing something I'm likely to regret?  Not sure I thought this through.

That's my way...doesn't mean I don't need some handholding in spirit, though...

And so you don't think I'm about to leave my job to join a circus as the chick who gets the knives tossed at her...I'm not.  I'm answering a message...

Because that.  and this...

well...he was...not that I don't think you guys are right up there, though!  And if this is a really bad idea?  Well...

And if it blows up in my face I've got some love and self loathing at home in the freezer.

Positive vibes coming your way.  And for a bit there I felt like I fell into a Pinterest Board.  Then I got to the goldfish and all was better again.

I'll be "handholding [you] in spirit" Buffy! I hope you like the results you get. :)

I still haven't done it yet and can't focus until I do but I have crucial memes to post on FJ and ...other important stuff to do to avoid sending the message I need to send.

The problem is it's like 4 sentences long.  And you all know me...I'm not much of a communicator in writing and that's a lot of words for me to use all at once.

I know.  But if it works out by sending me into recluse mode to be the next JD Salinger (but without with writing skills, but added breasts) help me find a place where I can avoid all human contact but still have pop tarts delivered.

I say go for it. Regrets if you don't?  For sure. Regrets if you do?  Maybe, maybe not.

Yeah - I'm still hiding in my blanket fort that is FJ so I don't have to do it.  I'm a coward at heart - why isn't that a trait people love?

I did it.  I was very brave...and now I'm very ...trying not to vomit.

This will end badly for me I'm sure - but every fiber in my being was nudging me to do this to the point I couldn't think about anything else.  Like I was supposed to do this...intuition was in over drive.

Now that I was brave and now vulnerable I think my intuition is a just a little bitch who likes to fuck with me.

Everything I try to comment sounds very trite, Buffy.  You're in my thoughts, and while I rarely comment anymore, I *think* about fj and read here often.  I hope this ending you refer to will surprise you and not turn out badly, but in your favor.  You mean a lot to so many of us here, and we're pulling for you.

I have the one true answer. Kittens. In particular. Some of my favourite foster kittens instagrammers. Anything is possible with kittens. So kittens to you, dahling. Kittens all around.

Even if it doesn't work out, and I fervently hope it does, you took a chance and did something brave. It's never bad to give in to hope and take a leap, who knows what's on the other side.

Dear @HerNameIsBuffy, Today is my first day to type a post since December. Had surgery, and the arm/hand was braced up a few months.  I was in reading mode only.

I want to share this little factoid lol.

In relation to the cosmic calendar:  The human life lasts for a blink of an eye = 0.23 Cosmic Seconds.

Buffy, you deserve the right to pursue your happiness.  I wish you well my friend, take care.

ETA: Can't wait to do memes again...I found some really sweeeet sloths!

@HerNameIsBuffy I'm late to this thread. Are you still in one piece? Or have we lost you down the bottom of a bottle of vodka? (I totally approve by the way. Frozen Stoli was my poison of choice back when I was an angst ridden 20-something).

@HerNameIsBuffy Also a late poster. I hope it did end well for you - and if not, it hurts but the pain goes away eventually. It's way better than having "what ifs" for the longest of time.

      I was interested in why they were popular at all at that price and found this: 

      That is really interesting.  I wish we could send this part to Shrader with his devotion to colloidal silver.  

      10 minutes ago, Coconut Flan said:

      But if you are using it because it is impregnated with silver to kill bacteria then you are being duped! It is nothing more than a scam with multi-level marketing. Proof is in the culture and agar plates! We used to use silver for burns, infections, etc, but now just use Bacitracin. Ask any specialized burn unit. Silver has lost favor in the antibacterial world.

      Now I feel better about my old fashioned cleaning methods of using clean rags and a low tech antibacterial vinegar and water solution instead of fancy expensive cloths.  You know what makes the best dust cloths too?  Old worn out towels cut into pieces.  Use 'em and toss them into the washing machine.

      On the difference between scam MLMs and legitimate direct sales businesses - Tupperware still seems to be on the side of the Gods too.  I hope so.

      Regardless of the scam-or-not argument, I just find representatives, parties, and pop-ups a ridiculously inefficient way to shop.

      This is my allergic reaction to this stuff too - even legitimate non-pyramid schemes.  I'm not a party person and I detest being invited to these things by friends and acquaintances.  I've never had a family member try to sell me stuff but I can imagine it would be very awkward.

      fair enough; so Norwex isn't MLM.

      It appears that it is an MLM.

      Quote

       

      Like any other MLM company, you have to become an Independent Norwex Sales Consultant before you could actually earn from this them.

      I will give you some information about the compensation plan that they offer below.

      You can earn 35% commission on your personal retail sales. Initially, you will get a discount of 35% when you buy the products as an Independent Consultant and you can sell the product to the customer at the retail price to earn your profit.

      You also get $300 worth of free product of your choice for each new Qualified Personal Recruit.

      Another way of earning is by hosting parties. This is provided by the company at no cost. The hosts also get generous rewards for hosting parties.

      You can also earn money from the sales of your team. You can recruit your friends, relatives or any stranger that is interested in joining your team. The Internet is a great place to recruit people. I have not yet noticed the percentage of commission on team sales, but I think it should be around 2% to 5%.

      You can also win gifts and awards for doing well as a consultant of this company. You can win gifts and awards from sales incentive programs and team building promotions.

       

      Quote

       

      Norwex gives you 90 days to sell $2,000 worth of products to avoid paying for the starter kit. I think this is not beneficial to most people as selling $2,000 worth of products in 90 days is not easy at all. The starter kit comes with the usual basic business supplies like order forms, catalogues, training materials, and some other things that you will need to start selling.

      The starter kit will cost you $200 when you fail to sell $2,000 worth of products in 90 days.

       

      https://howtopassiveincome.net/what-is-the-norwex-mlm-read-this-before-joining

      Other websites provide this info too. I guess you can sell it without trying to recruit people, but you can do that with Plexus and Plexus is still very much an MLM.

      Don't you watch those home improvement shows? You'll reduce the number of proselytizers at your door, if you line your sidewalk and flower beds with a cheerful assortment of rainbow colored dildos. :kitty-wink:

      I rather like the suggestion I read some years ago to have a chalk outline on your front walk and tell people that the outline was of the last proselytizer that had come to the house.
