I know comparison is the thief of joy, but I can't help but see everyone on FB and Instagram, zenning out, with their perfect poses, and I'm just not feeling it. I am feeling more calm.. and I'm beginning to understand what "leave it on the mat" means. I look forward to that "mat time".. "me time" every day, but physically, I'm challenged.

Before I became a business strategist, I was an ICU Nurse and End of Life Care Nurse. I've saved many people from death and I've helped people die with dignity. When our time comes, we truly are stripped down into the shell of body. I've seen that first hand. All of our worries, fear, anger, regret, material possessions, degrees, it doesn't really matter. What matter is how we've lived and how we've loved.
"Give me two tips about websites; what makes a good one stand out?" Websites? That's my husbands jam! Now don't get me wrong, I love to write the story, the content, the about pages. I geek out about helping clients answer "who they are, what they do, and what result they get their clients." But websites? I was in trouble.
At first it annoyed me. Maybe that's because I feel like I wouldn't have half the success I do, if it wasn't for my amazing husband. His skills and leadership is needed in our business and at home, and our success is truly a team effort. But then I thought deeper about it. What if it wasn't about outshining men, stepping up where they can't, or... world domination. What if it was about empowering women to play bigger than they ever have before.
Having a focus word for the year grounds me. It’s like a guiding compass for the choices I make each day. Now that’s not to say everyday will be rainbows and sunshine, and I’ll never experience sadness, or conflict, or pain, but when I can't trust my gut, I go to my question. Will this bring me joy? There's 3 difficult things I've had to face already in 2019.
You could say that being an entrepreneur gives you freedom, but it also comes with a shit ton of emotions. Constantly putting yourself out there for criticism and opinions, and if you're doing it right, you're going to take risks and you're going to fail.
As I lay in bed, with my husband snoring beside me, I fought back the tears. "I'm failing as a mom. I'm failing as a business owner, I'm a crappy friend, and I'm totally going to screw up my kid." Then came the waterfall. I was tired. But it wasn't from all of my to-do's. I was tired because my relentless striving for perfection burnt me out.
"Mom, do you have a baby in your belly because it's so BIG!" Ouch. Kids say the darnedest things. That innocent comment from my 5-year old was the straw that broke the camels back. At the end of 2018, I had enough.
