Have you ever had that feeling where you just wanted to get away and never come back?
Life can be extremely hard and unfair. The world is still shocked at the death of Kobe Bryant. It’s just one of those tragedies that you don’t know what to think or do. We all go through a traumatic event at some point in our lives. I don’t know whether it is Kobe’s death or the thoughts in the back of my head reminding me that my due date just passed which has me feeling uneasy.
I live a pretty isolated life being a stay at home entrepreneur. So, I’m with my thoughts a lot. It can be depressing being alone 90% of the time. Sometimes, I wonder did I make the right decision. I didn’t think it’ll be so isolating being your own boss. I can say I miss face to face interaction with people. Now, most of my interaction is done via video calls.
I try to make the best of it but it’s hard. I have a husband that works long hours and no little one to keep me on my toes. It’s just me. Or maybe it’s the “winter blues” that has me in a funk.
To add becoming an entrepreneur hasn’t been an easy road. You hear about all the success stories but you don’t hear the struggle. I would have thought by now I’ll be overflowing with income but it’s been slow but steady. I love what I do. As far as working I’m the happiest I’ve been in a long time.
I love helping people. I love learning new ideas and new approaches to life. It’s helping me in my own life. I know I’m not the same person I used to be. I’m wiser now but I’ve learned that growth comes with its own set of challenges.
With growth comes a mindset shift and you have to be strong enough and wise enough to understand not everyone is going to get it. One of the main reasons why we can’t elevate in life is because we are so stuck on what other people think.
I’ve learned that what other people think is none of my business. I can’t change the way they think. I can only change and shift my atmosphere and I can see how this can take a toll on any type of relationship.
Think of it this way, start being more positive and watch your negative friends start pulling away. Your mindset can open your eyes to a lot of things.
Don’t be shocked by what comes to light as you grow and become a better you.
