5:45am- woke up with little effort (something that's unheard of in my life, I'm not exactly a morning person) but I took it and ran with it.
Decided I had to take an hour this morning to just sit still, REALLY think, and write. I really just needed some time to re-center myself.
This week has been nothing short of overwhelming and stressful.
Little by little, it started to feel like one of those "when it rains, it pours" kind of moments and I'm here drowning in a glass of water.
I sulked and complained about everything this yesterday. The fact I've been sick as a dog hasn't helped my mood or temper either lol. But I couldn't help but feel bad about all the complaining I've been doing, because it's not like me.
So today I took the time to really think... Why am I flipping out so hard? Why am I not allowing myself to fully feel the way I feel? Since when did having feelings whilr running a business become overrated?
I'm only human and I'm allowed to get upset and frustrated. Stress gets to all of us and we can certainly decide how we react to it, but sometimes you just have to give yourself a moment to have a fit. The key is to have your moment and bitch and moan about the hardships, but not to dwell on the negative for too long. I had to go back to the drawing board to:
• recall the reasons I even embarked on this whole entrepreneurship adventure in the first place
• understand that the world is not on fire, it's just happening in my head (let's be honest)
• and figure out how to get over this rough patch.
Sulking won't fix anything, and if anything, it's simply another lesson learned in business. The things they don't warn you about
It's not always unicorns pooping out rainbows and making bags back to back, but it's definitely a lesson on how to fasten my belt a little tighter and get back to work.
There's a light at the end of the tunnel.
Can't stop, won't stop till I reach my goals and personal success.
