03 Apr When it Rains…. Does it pour?
There are moments in life when the phrase “When it rains, it pours” really rings true. Based on the events in my life over the past couple of weeks, a few people have said that to me… but I’m not really sure it’s pouring right now. It’s raining, that’s for sure… but I truly believe the sun is going to peek through the clouds any moment and the flowers will bloom again shortly after.
As I briefly posted before, I am in a position no where I am depending only on my own business, which I had put on hold in order to work with other people… the change came rather abruptly but I am determined to build my business finally and be successful in a way I have always wanted to be. It’s stressful – but I’m making it work and will continue to make it work because…. I’m stubborn like that. In addition to this life change that can be financially scary at times – I rear ended someone the other day. AWESOME.
What I am choosing to hold onto is the excitement I feel every day when I wake up, make my coffee, and get to sit at my computer and work on MY business. I feel like a kid in a candy store. I’ve been rebuilding my website, revamping my blog, coming up with marketing ideas, talking to mentors and colleagues about how to grow… and I am soaking it all up. I go to bed at night thinking about what I’m going to do tomorrow for my business… sometimes I get too excited about what I’m going to do tomorrow, and I run downstairs to do it before bed. That kind of energy and enthusiasm has been lost for a long time because I wasn’t nearly as passionate about what I was doing before. So rather than crying over spilled milk, and freaking out about how I’m going to make things work – I’m moving forward. Full speed ahead. Failing is not an option because I have bills to pay…. and I’m not going to get a 9 to 5 job for “safety” – I’m going to make this work.
Life is full of rain, down pours, spilled milk, fear, anxiety – you name it. But life is also what we make of it. Do you stand outside the front door and cry in the rain when you forget your keys? No, you run around trying to find an open window, and if none are open – you break one and you get inside. You might cut yourself on a piece of glass, or fall and twist your ankle… but hey – you’re going to get up, dry yourself off, clean yourself up, and get back to work. Because life is what you make of it… so make lemonade… dance in the rain… choose happiness… and all of those other sayings 🙂
With endless love and hope,
