Stick the Freaking Landing! (The 3 womb mates business mantra)
3 Womb Mates learned an important lesson at 30 years old; inspired by a very important duck face selfie. This past Friday we were all sitting in the back seat on the way to a wedding (perfect opportunity to take a selfie!). Well, the driver decided it would be funny to keep jolting the break in an ATTEMPT to destroy our perfectly positioned duck faces…but guess what? Through all the breaking, giggles, and swearing at the driver we STUCK THE LANDING! I mean look at that photo above….you would practically think we were platypuses…duck face success! After my womb mate yelled out to the sabotaging driver, “HAHA we stuck the f*@%ing landing!!!”(and after we recovered from seizure-like giggling) it really got me thinking about our life at 30 and how at this age we have really focused on “Sticking the landing” and reaching our goals no matter how messy it looks as we tumble our way down the path to success.
Here is what we do know; through all trials and tribulations we have two ride or dies right alongside us that make it all a little less scary. If one person trips up or is about to collapse the other two will pull them back up. Another benefit of going into business with your womb mates ( or those besties of yours) is when things get super busy you can call on them for help, or when you have nobody show up to an event you at least get to make a night out of it , get some wine slushies and go out to dinner while your husbands blissfully believe you are “working”.
This is a crucial step to sticking the landing…don’t go back to your car huffing and puffing; throwing a mini tantrum because everything didn’t go your way. If you do you’re in for lots of wasted pout time. Suck it up, move on, and go out for a drink and some fantastic carbohydrates (who cares, you have Grapefruit essential oil anyways) and discuss what you are going to do with your next few hours of freedom with your bestie/partner in crime.
(we see your thought bubble)“but Womb Mates…What happens if I can’t figure out how to stick the landing?” To that we cackle and say “ you can bet Donald Trump didn’t get his comb-over right at least the first 300 times (we've all trained hair before, right ladies?), but as you can see he didn’t give up…still rocking the best and only comb over in the country”...perseverance and hair spray my friends! We also bet he has a team of people that get that Wiff to sit just right…find these people!!! Most of the time the people that would be best to help you be successful you don’t even have to search for. They are the ones that have been there when nothing was great, everything was going wrong, but together could rummage up enough money for a 12 pack and a lottery ticket…that my friends is who you want to help you.
So please remember, No one says the road to success is pretty, you flub, you fail, you try again and again.....but in the end you STICK THE LANDING!!!!! and you blast that S*&t all over social media!!! Because you earned it!
