*At age 24 my home was broken into on the night of our stag and doe, and all of my possessions along with cash we worked so hard to save was gone.
Years ago I had a hater named Janice... who assumed all I did all day long was pawn my kids off and go shopping while I worked from home.
Years ago I also had a good friend name Kate who blocked and unfriended me when my business was successful and hers wasn’t.
Years ago I had a good friend laugh at me when I told her I was going to retire my husband.
But here’s the thing about haters.
You’re only shining light onto their darkness and most often it’s rooted in their own insecurity. It’s not even about you.
What the heck do you do all day?
An EMPTY day… As a business owner… or a BIG DREAMER
What do you do all day, and how do you do it all with kids?
Or how DID you do it?
Well first off, you gotta be deeply connected with a HEART and a mission for that will keep going going when the haters come
Second, if you want a better life, you don’t quit, and you...
Unfiltered and Real.
Tomorrow I turn 39, and I felt called to send you something tonight as I sit here and reflect over the course of my 39 years of life.
I can tell you that I have never felt more alive, more healthier, more happier, more grateful, more creative, more free, more authentic, and more aligned with who I was created to be then right now.. on THIS day.
But it wasn't always like this though.....
In fact, I'm pretty sure I lost my way from my source of connection very early in life.
Growing up morbidly obese, feeling not good enough, divorce, heartache single parenting, miscarriages, starting over, death of loved ones, car accidents, home invasion, lawyers, being fired from a job, trauma, PTSD, I often would joke with my best friends...
It's no wonder I'm not locked in a looney bin yet.... It showed.
In my 39 years of life, I've been through a lot, and I can say that I've experienced MORE darkness than light... but these days I...
I’ll swap you my half dead bush here... for those dead eyes of yours and that fake smile you wear on your face.
I don’t want either, but when I was hiring for a landscaper no one actually came to me with LOVE.
All I got was... “My husband can do it”…. Or “I’m looking for some extra money right now, so pick me"....
Nope. Not you. Not ever.
Ain’t happening friend.
I’ll hold off until I can find those people who come into my life full of purpose, spark, passion and a dire love for what they do.
I’m looking for a HIGH level of Excellence and a deep rooted passion. Not just clocking in and clocking out.
Let me tell you, it's rare to find these days!
You see friend, you were built for PURPOSE.
If you’re just waking up to make money, you’re dying just like this bush of mine.
So what will it be for you today?
Have you asked...
