Good Morning! I know it’s been a minute since my last post and as I’ve stated before, I’m still trying to sort my life out. This has been one of the toughest years of my life because I have been in a state of uncertainty for most of it. When you are passionate about something and you pray that things will work out the way you imagined, it feels like a punch to the gut when things take a turn for the worst. I never wanted to settle but it felt like a lot of the decisions I’ve made in my professional and personal life weren’t ideal choices but instead, the most logical ones for the time being. This was because I was letting fear take control over my life.
At the beginning of the year, I had so many plans for my life and specifically, for the site but I allowed fear and doubt get in the way of my goals. There was so much that I wanted to do but instead of taking things one day at a time, I let myself feel overwhelmed and decided not to go after any of the things I desired. Now I’m at the point where I can either decide to let my fears (fear of failure, fear of rejection, etc.) control my life and keep me at a standstill or I can let it motivate me to become the best version of myself. I’m going with the latter 🙂 Fear is normal because most of us have things we are unsure of or uncomfortable with. Fear gives us limits and limitations are only good when people and situations can put our life at risk. Fear is not good however when it threatens to limit your potential. In these instances, faith and belief in yourself must override the fear that is holding you back. It is a scary process but the result is worth the anxiety and uncertainty that lingered at the beginning of the journey.
It’s about a month away from the new year and I’m not waiting until 2016 to overcome my fears. There is one end of the year goal that I’m working on and once I achieve it, I’ll be sure to tell you all about it. I want to go into 2016 with a bang and this goal will be the spark that I need to start 2016 off right! Thanks for rocking with me and stay tuned for my comeback:p
Always remember to love and live luxuriously!
