Good Afternoon everyone! I know its been over 3 months since my last post but I’ve been working on a masterpiece that needs to take time and develop in order for greatness! I am not talking about a particular object or idea but I realized that for this site and everything else in my life to work, I have to be the best version of myself and I can honestly say that I haven’t been for much of this year. A lot of it was throwing pity parties and feeling sorry for myself because things weren’t working out the way that I expected them to and I just felt like I was trapped in this never-ending cycle of a bad situationship and that no one could truly understand or relate. As a result, I isolated myself from people most of the time. In addition to all of that, I was holding anger towards people who I felt wronged me and envious of those who I felt were doing better than me in life and I was letting all of this negative energy consume me. It got so bad that my anxiety started to build and I would have trouble sleeping at night worrying about everyone and everything except what was most important. At that point, I knew that I had to make a change. Talking about it while I was at the worst of it wouldn’t help because it wasn’t that I didn’t know what my issues were or why I had them. I needed to tune out the doubts that festered within and focus on my life and what I need to do to get to where I want to be instead of letting my past and all those involved deter me from achieving my goals. Life is not a race where only those who are ahead will find success but it is a journey that everyone has to take and travel in their own way at their own time.
If you would have asked me a few years ago where I saw my life once I turned 30, I would have told you that I would be a successful marketing/pr executive, my site would have thousands of monthly views AND I would be a YouTube star on the verge of hitting a million followers (dream big or not at all right!) but life is funny in that way because things don’t always turn out the way you expect them to. In the past, I’d throw yet another pity party and grumble to myself while lurking on social media and wishing I had the career and all the materialistic things to show for it. Now I know that feeling sorry for myself only keeps me stagnant and I will be successful even though I have altered my goals just a bit to align with the modified vision I have. I am not as focused on views or hits but more about creating content that resonates with women so we can create a dialogue and learn from each other. As far as becoming a marketing/pr exec, I would rather focus on being an entrepreneur and build the “Amore Luxe” brand by sharing my experiences through various online avenues (YouTube, Facebook, blog, etc.). The most important part in doing that is to not put so much stress on quantity but quality. If one person can leave “Amore Luxe” feeling more confident and inspired, then I will have done my job and fulfilled my purpose.
I know this is a longer post than usual but I have 3+ months worth of things to say! For those of you who aren’t following me on Facebook, (and if you aren’t, you can add me on here: http://www.facebook.com/angelacherai) I streamed live for the first time in a LONG time last Wednesday. The topic of the stream was “Work In Progress” and I will post it down below so you can view and let me know what you think! Thanks to my producer Lance for making sure everything went smoothly behind the scenes!
Okay if you have read up to this point, BLESS YOU! I just have one more update. I will be live on Facebook again on Wednesday October 26th at 8pm EST. The topic will be “Eliminating Limitations”. I have LOTS to say on this subject and I can’t wait to read everyone’s comments so definitely tune in! If you are not able to log on while I am live, the video will be on my Facebook page as well as on here so you won’t be out of the loop!
As I stated in my Facebook live stream, I am a work in progress and have a long way to go but I am happy that I am in a better place mentally and spiritually than I was at the beginning of 2016. Still working on the physical lol but I will get there…eventually! Thank you all so much for sticking with me through all the craziness and trust me, the best is yet to come!
Until next time,
always remember to love and live life luxuriously!
