“Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it . Try again, do it better the second time . The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire.”-Oprah Winfrey
Well hello gorgeous, I know it’s been a minute since I have shown up on this here Monday . I have been extremely busy on top of refilling my cup . If I can be frank this has been extremely uncomfortable. I have been doing some serious inventory which has also been painful. You know they kind of self assessment where you got to check yourself on every single level. Let me be the first to tell you if you are looking for a short cut to keep bullshi*ing yourself. I am sorry I will not be much of service to you.
How many times this year have you talked yourself out of what you deserve? You know that voice or support system that’s not really helpful that tells you .. “ YOU DON’T HAVE TIME FOR THAT” or even worst you never gave yourself permission to want more . The things we speak into existence all rely in the power of the Tongue.(GIRLllllllllllllllllll) I felt all of that … But it’s true the things we speak of or to ourself will determine our altitude.
I am here to let you know STOP….
• Talking yourself out of it
• listening to people who have not accomplished anything
•telling yourself your not good enough
Identify your strengths and weaknesses and see where you can improve.
•Changing your mindset
•with you ….
I remember feeling like I needed more support to really go for the things my heart desired . I remember trying to get support from my daughters father since I raise my daughter on my own so I can attend the events and take the pictures. I remember asking him to sacrifice the way I sacrifice and the response was “I’ll see what I can do “ and if I am honest I was going to accept that . It was what I was accustomed to “ putting everyone else’s needs before my own was my speciality at the time . I was taught that’s how you take care of your family.
As I hung up the phone , something clicked . I am not going to wait on anyone to give me the green light to make it happen. That meant teaching my daughter photography so she can help me . That meant taking her with me to event that we’re kid friendly and networked .
Most importantly that meant showing up For Me and being able to pass down the blessing to her .
So I ask what are you willing to cut the chatter to live out your Why ?
