For the past few months I’ve been dealing with some MAJOR issues. I know it sounds cliche, but I wasn’t feeling in the mood to do anything big. No heavy lifting, no big plans… Really I just wanted to fall off the face of the earth. That’s what I did – I just closed up shop. I sat on my couch and I licked my emotional wounds. I poured myself into a 9-5 job. I tried to reconcile what happened in 2011 with my expectations. Then one day (very recently) I looked in the mirror. Did you know what was staring back at me???
I really didn’t change too much. My circumstances changed, but I was still the same me. I just felt like playing a game of hide my light. Well folks I’m back.
I’m working feverishly on the Mompreneur project. I want to help women like me tackle everything with a purpose and WIN. Family, business, emotions, support (or lack of), etc. There are hundreds of other things we deal with on a day-to-day basis. The trick come out the other end wiser, stronger and getter off than before. Here’s some other things I learned over the past six months.
No one gets out of this world alive – we all have limited time. How we choose to spend it, and who we choose to spend it with are FULLY in our control.
You control your emotions. No one ever forces you to have emotions. When you give your emotions away like an ATM machine you lose. Are you ready to close a few emotional bank accounts in your life? I know I did.
People have every right to emotions, but you don’t need to use them as a weapon to hurt the people around you. We all get hurt, but when we choose to get up and move away from the flame, that’s when we win. You need to have healthy boundaries.
The other thing I’ve identified – you can’t do everything alone – it really does take a village. When you need help, ask for it. When you need time alone, just get it done. Don’t let people sway you one way or another.
It’s true – the economy sucks, but you can’t change it on your own.
Look what a bunch of people did sitting on a NYC street – they created momentum. They gave a voice to everyone without a voice. They gave people the right to say – “I’m Mad as HELL and I’m not going to take it anymore!”
Well the Mompreneurs out there know – we get by with a little help from our friends.
I’m back, and I’m here to stay MOTIVATED.
You’re going to see some major changes to the website soon – I’m going to focus on my first love – success thinking. Hope you check back soon.
Warmest Wishes for you to Succeed -
