I hope you had a grand weekend. I spent time with friends and chilled in my bed watching this quirky show called ‘Huge in France’ on Netflix. It’s a show all about rich people problems. Well, not really but that is the conclusion I came up with.
But mostly after a challenging day at work, I just needed breathing space. Not to give to many details, I had someone who challenged my character because I did not want to take them on as a client.
Being an entrepreneur can put one in some sticky positions sometimes. On one hand, you want to be of service but on the other had one has to make it completely clear that we are not servants.
As an expert in my field is not a title that I bestowed upon myself. It is a term that people that I have worked gave to me. I consider myself a constant learner. There is always more to learn and technology is constantly making improvements.
I have realized one thing I wish I had learned 25 years ago. Everyone does not deserve access to your shine. We all have a place where we shine. That thing that comes easy to us and is as simple as breathing. True many people do that same thing but the exact way you do it, sis, that is your shine.
We live from the notion that if you have a gift that it is your duty to share it with the world. Well, what I have come to realize is that really is not the case. Some folks like Coke and some folks like Pepsi. And 9 times out of ten you will never convince a Pepsi person that Coke is better.
My life had been a quest or liberation and the older I get the more I realize that true liberation is the freedom to say yes to yourself. This eliminates stress, people pleasing and spreading yourself thin.
The 2 things that God gave us is free will and choice, and in this life, I am beginning to choose me. My shine is worthy!
