I felt compelled to write about this today.
I want you to all know it's okay to not always have everything perfect and together. We are all human, we all have our limits, strengths, weaknesses and have times that we need help.
I had a discussion about a month ago with a group of people and I had somebody say to me... "you sound like you have everything all figured out; you are running your business with two toddlers at home and everything seems to be going so well for you".
To be honest, it made me happy that somebody could see the effort and strength I was putting into my every day life. On the other hand though, I don't want people to think that everything is perfect because I never want to portray that I have "it all figured out"....because I don't!
I'm learning through new challenges each day and with others helping me on my journey.
For myself personally, I've struggled and been working with doctors for a while now to target and help with my anxiety. I never show my struggles to anyone. My kids will not see it, nor do my clients, because I am a mother, a friend and a professional and will do what needs to be done.
What I am trying to say is this: the people you see that seem to have everything all put together and brave a smile when they see you; that doesn't mean that everything is perfect!
You will never know because you are not them; so do not compare yourselves to others.
Do I think my struggle made me weak? Heck NO! I can conquer anything I put my mind to and I believe that!
I am happy to say that through lots of trial and error, thoughts and changes made in my life, that I am becoming a better person then I was before.
I spent so many years putting everyone else's needs above my own and I am taking baby steps to change that outlook. I'm taking charge of my life and working towards my dreams and taking things as they come, and I love it!
Do not compare your business and its success against another, because you are different!
Do not compare yourself to another person, because what makes you special, is because you are different!
Nobody has everything all put together; we all deal with our own struggles behind the scenes.
Work on making yourself better, that's all that should matter in the end! You won't make it very far if you do not care for yourself.
