Sometimes you just want to scream!

So I left my full-time job in December to start a membership-based meal delivery company for babies and tots. It’s something I’ve been dreaming up since last June. I’m a one-woman show right now and it’s definitely not an easy task. Hmm, no wonder why it took me this long to make the leap!

There are days when I’m on top of the world and there are days where I am drowning in to-do lists and overcome by fear. I guess it’s normal when you are on your own. The thing is, I haven’t even launched yet! Once I launch, the to-do list is going to be THAT much bigger! Anyhow, the best thing that gets me out of my rut is to just take action. I’m what they call “an activator” by nature. When I have an idea or am motivated or inspired by something, I act. It definitely annoys some people because I expect them to be on the same page as me, and not everyone is like that (you should ask my husband!). It is a great quality for me as an entrepreneur, because I get a lot done. But, on the other hand, I also have A LOT of ideas so my brain is constantly running. 

One day at a time. One day at a time. It’s a mantra I have been trying to incorporate into my daily routine. I’m the only one pushing me. I’ve always been my biggest critic, the hardest judge, the most demanding boss, it’s me. I do it to myself. It’s what got me here. I’m grateful for those traits, but they come with a lot of expectations. 

Anyone feel me!??

We all need a little pick-me-up now and again. You see the featured image? That is what I feel like doing today. But instead, I write. It’s a healthy outlet for me. A way to unwind, relax and check-in with myself. We all need to do a little bit of self-lovin’ every now and again. 

At the end of the day, it’s good to remind ourselves that we are ultimately not in control and that things are going to work out just fine, the way they were planned to. Each of us needs to keep following the right path; keep doing the next right thing and remember what you choose to spend your time doing is up to you. Do what makes you happy.

Feel free to drop me some encouraging words every now and again if the spirit moves you! I’ll write some right back at you!
