A little truth coming at ya this morning from a recovering APPROVAL JUNKIE #HappyMonday
I spent an ungodly amount of time worrying about what EVERYONE thought of me
I spent countless hours hustling to making sure EVERYONE liked me (yeah that worked out real well ) If someone ignored a text or didn’t call me back I’d panic and start thinking about what I must’ve said or done wrong
I allowed people to disrespect me and treat me inappropriately and disguised my passivity under the mask of “grace” and “forgiveness”
All in the name of APPROVAL When I read this quote a couple of years ago, it hit me like a ton of bricks (thanks Brian Misner for the reminder again this morning). “What other people think of you is none of your business.” #truthbomb
Here’s the reality y’all, there are a lot of people out there who are insanely miserable with their own lives and when they refuse to take responsibility for that they project their own chaos onto others. There’s ZERO amount of hustling that will EVER get them to like you #hatersgonnahate
So brush your shoulders off #moveon and LIVE! The way you want to live! Unapologetically! Unashamed!
Since entering the entrepreneurial space I’ve seen SO MUCH of the same voice. Ova and ova. :
I *almost* got swept up in it. I was so damn close to doing it.
As a writer, it’s an even starker thought to stomach the idea of having to shift your voice to be more “mainstream.” To write copy just like all the others to draw potential clients in.
Well I say f that. I love my voice - it is multifaceted and oh so me. I have a poetic voice, an empathetic voice, a powerful voice, a humorous voice and well...a tell-it-like-it-is voice. ALL of these are ME. I’m not going to compromise the integrity of my voice to get you to “click” or “like” my business online. :
If you relate to my story, you’re going to read on. If not, you’re going to move on. If you read on I hope I inspire you. And if you’re drawn to my words and their meaning, maybe you’ll get that inner nudge that one day - when you are ready - we could transform your life to be in alignment with your true purpose, inner power and woman you’re going to be dancing that resilient dance! (Oh and we’ll probably talk about coffee, stories, and faraway lands - word)!
Tomorrow is my first day back at ‘work’ after this gorgeous AMAZING beautiful family holiday.... And I’m pumped 3 years ago it would have been so crazy for me to think that I could have a J O B that I loved this much! But as soon as I let my heart take the steering wheel of my life, I have been able to create a soul centred biz that uses my unique skills to help women by simply showing up and doing what I do best and what I absolutely LOVE to do! Crazy! Tomorrow I’ll be back behind the desk creating 3 amazing new offerings So much inspo! Plenty of time If you want to take a journey to create a heart centred space, it has to start with self love . Not there yet? Come join me for my 6 week online journey to #selflove through #intuitivemovement! (Just DM me for the deets) Now to think of a cool name.... any ideas ???
