Well, it's been a while but I'm back...... and I have to be completely honest with you all, this journey back was a rocky one and today I want to be completely TRANSPARENT with you all.
You know in the road to being this supermom amazing rockstar entrepreneur, things get rough along the way, most people don't talk about it because they don't want to discourage others from taking the leap into business ownership themselves BUT the truth of the matter is this is probably the most important element of being an entrepreneur. Basically it's the HARD TIMES or wha people call a slump or a burnout. And it happens!!! The truth of the matter is people that are passionate and driven will always experience a time where they feel a little overwhelmed with it all, you know why? Because we are HUMAN. We run into these times and let me be the one to say IT's OK!! It happens to the best of them! But I want you to also consider something, what is it that you say to yourself when you fail or when things maybe just don't work out quite as well as you wanted them to. How does your self esteem change? Do you say.... "oh this just isn't for me" and walk away OR are you the wine that says "it's ok, I'll try something else tomorrow".... you see I'm a PROBLEM SOLVER so for me it's not an option to throw in the towel, I just have to figure out another way out of the maze.
So this past past month was a tough one for me, both in my business and in my home/ family life, I began to feel overwhelmed for some reason, even tho I handle my plate very well each and every day, doubt began to creep in and I started thinking "well what if I can't handle it" "what if this is how it all falls down" and the WORST PART, I thought it was the enemy trying to knock me off course. It I was mistaken because it was GOD. You see I want to be a leader, a triple diamond leader with my business this year, I also want to be a motivational speaker and author as well as a better artist, that means I asked for A LOT... and God is testing me with whether or not I can balance it all so he's giving me MORE, because I asked for more, but see I have to be prepared for what comes each and every day and he ready to fight for ME because I am worth MILLIONS and that is a lot, I KNOW I can do all the things I've set out to do because that's why I set them as goals, I am making this PUBLIC declaration to continue to fight each day and to grow and to change and to learn from the lessons God gives me. This is what happens when you FIGHT, when you choose to fight.
The honest truth, I started to doubt myself and I started to get low self esteem because I began to compare myself to others and say things like, "Well I won't get there because I'm not like....." but WHY?
Because fear crept in, I started to see myself as less than but my uniqueness has always been an advantage because everyone is different and even tho I'm a crazy artist who uses too much color in everything, I'm a boring mom and housewife and I don't dress like a runway model or have my face made up like the girl at the MAC counter BUT I'm ME! I love me, crazy colorful Mohawk and all and I just had to snap back to reality because I KNOW I have got this!! If you are thinking you are a "misfit" let me tell you that you ARE but that is PK because there are other misfits out there just like you, continue to fight he fight and encourage others to do the same!! We as a human race are One Team with One Mission for overall happiness, success and peace of mind.
