I was speaking to my dad the other night about how the businesses are going etc. and something slipped out which made me think a little. It went a little something like this… “my two degree were hands down more tolerable that what I am going through at the moment”. His response: “no way!”. Now this is an interesting statement as it wasn’t all fun and laughter when I did those said degrees; they were some harrowing years. What it did make me realise was how much I have grown as a person since I started this journey as an entrepreneur, and what I am now able to cope with through the experiences I’ve had in the past 2 years.
The purpose for this post is to tell you that sh!t is gonna happen. A chain of events starts when you set your course and decide to do something you’re passionate about. We’re here to grow and learn, be tested so we can live lives that are full. You stepping up to do what you love is setting a silent intent, which I know not many people realise – which I didn’t realise. It’s a subconscious “ok” to the universe saying you are ready to step up. And step up you shall my dear.
There aint one business woman I have thus far come in contact with that hasn’t experience some or all of the above. There’s power in truth and we sometimes feel fear towards it or avoid it completely. Adulating can be challenging. It’s those of us that stick with it through these crazy times, through the brilliant times, that make something of ourselves. It is strength of character which each and everyone possesses in some form. These journeys show us what those are so we can work with them, not against.
You are amazing. And this is to show you that you are also human. Just like I am and just like countless other women out there are starting their own businesses. What I want you to also take from this is that these things are okay. You are perfectly normal. You are perfectly capable. And you damn well don’t need to justify any of the things below to anyone who deems to judge you. Don’t let these things scare you. Rather use it as a list of reference when you’re feeling like crap to see that others are going through the same – and we’re all here to understand and support you. We know what it’s like. And we are egging you on from the sidelines. Sometimes with our Pjs on and a pizza in our mouthes as we haven’t showered or functioned ourselves so well that day. But we are here for you. And this is me sharing to show you that being human is ok. Just keep swimming
