{blessed2be} the biology of M2B

It's the terrible 2s! That's far the company has come in such a short time! Just two years ago, I went independant with Meant2Be Events ! In that time, I have been honored in creating 35+ weddings and  10+ corporate events! Rock on with my bad self!

So while making plans to celebrate my 2 year old birthday, I wonder what makes us who we are? How can I celebrate a beautiful beginning and not perfectly have defined its progression?  Is it destiny?  Luck? How about biology? Let's explore.
DESTINY. Is my path in life in the stars lined with candles, adorned with chandeliers, and created with the finest in crocodile skin? Is it cosmic that I love to plan parties that people drool over? Is it fate that I have an eye for all things "bling"? Is there a planet in my house of Glam? Well , I cannot say for certain. But here is what I do know about this matter.
I am a Capricorn. In my research this is what I have found on

Capricorn, the tenth sign of the zodiac, is all about hard work. Those born under this sign are more than happy to put in a full day at the office, realizing that it will likely take a lot of those days to get to the top.  Capricorns are both ambitious and determined: they will get there. The Capricorn-born are extremely dedicated to their goals, almost to the point of stubbornness. Those victories sure smell sweet, though, and that thought alone will keep Capricorns going. They are attracted to luxurious purchases despite their practicality. Capricorns are loyal to those they deem important, almost to a fault. A capricorn is also a foodie, and suffers from addictions to  spas, travel and wine.

Ok, so I added the last part. Pretty much this is saying that because my mom had me in January- I am a stubborn project manager who loves loves nice things. So far...destiny has a pretty good argument for M2B's successs...onward.

LUCK. Well this one is easy. If you believe in luck, well, you have just given all your power away. My philosophy has worked for me for many years now. Take ALL the Responsibilty and you will NEVER be powerless in creating a life you want.  One of my favorite quotes is by Thomas Jefferson: I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.
That being said, I still feel there is a pinch of "magic" in successful ventures big and small.

So maybe its biology. There is a difference between people who are left brain and right brain dominant. Here is a quiz for you to see which half of your brain is on vacation.
So my results came up pretty even on this quiz (15L/16R) so I found another one 
That test is of a dancer that is turning and based on which way she turns in your head is how you can tell if you are right brain or left brain or maybe drunk...I'm not really sure how anyone could see it anyway other then clockwise... but so far in two tests I am right brain dominant.....

RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS ( I have noted my thoughts on this in parantheses)
uses feelings ( everything in my life is fab, delish, and I am madly in love with everyone)
"big picture" oriented (flailing hands in the air as I describe blowing up my ballroom)
imagination rules (enough said)
symbols and images (rockin storyboard proposals baby!)
present and future (actions are always for results 9-12 months out)
philosophy & religion (worship all things sparkly & know the meaning of life is the celebration of it!)
can "get it" i.e. meaning (I  totally get it.)
believes ( in magic ** see above commentary on luck)
appreciates ( the beautiful people who support and love me)
spatial perception (this one is simple, still surprised when I hear about others floor plans- yikes)
knows object function ( hmmm, you mean  I can't hang it from the ceiling?)
presents possibilities( Here's how it will be hanging from the ceiling when I'm done!)

In conclusion, I have discovered the many, many things that make M2B successful. I do believe that the planets were aligned as such so that I was born of two fab hip parents. My father who showed me through hard work and persevernece that I will never be without. A mother who lived her love for me through laughter, guidance, friendship and art. A brother who showed me that his brand of luck/magic lives on and that following your happiness is the way to go. Through their support I have come to have a life that I love and a business I never thought possible. 

Oh and it might help that my left brain checked out around 2005.
