Peace. It’s too late by some people’s standards to wish you a happy new year, but I’m gonna do it anyway. Happy New Year!
Today is MLK Day. Some people are off work today. Not me. I’m an entrepreneur so I technically work everyday. My work today consists of nothing major, just working on a couple custom jewelry orders and some general creativity. I got my ass handed to me by my partner in life & business last night so I’m also brainstorming on ways to diversify and increase income.
And I’m asking myself what more I can let go that will make me lighter and not hold me back. I have been afraid. Afraid of not being able to be myself and still be successful. Can I be my authentic self and reach the level of success that suits me? Is this something that can really be achieved on my terms or will I have to compromise my values, my sanity, my overall wellness? Is it ok to put myself out there?
I am not sure if it’s possible but I am mentally and emotionally exhausted, I realized. I am not content with my current situation and I am tired of second-guessing myself. At my core, I know I am great. And it is time to start really living into that. So this blog is me putting myself out there. This is my new, public journal. It is my purpose to be as honest as I can. In no way am I perfect and neither is my life. And I don’t have all the answers but I am actively working to be better daily.
At the end of yoga teacher training last April, I said that I was leaving fear behind. At some point during 2016 I unknowingly picked it back up. Well, I’m burying fear this time, and I am not going back to dig it up. Cheers to 2017.
Thanks for reading.
