Make it a habit to feel uncomfortable EVERYDAY. Sitting here now after a long morning cold calling and I must admit I STILL sometimes get nervous after doing it for over 3 years now. I interviewed @native_poppy yesterday for my podcast @sandiegobizbabes and the topic came up about how she makes it a habit of making herself feel uncomfortable every single day. It’s exhausting, it takes a toll on your body and it’s hard but without it we both wouldn’t be where we are today (and to think it’s only the beginning is insane). It is definitely vital to success and the more conscious you are of it the easier it gets to just make that jump, no matter what it is... even if it’s just a little one everyday. 😇
As hard as I try I don’t have the words to heal you. I don’t have the words to make everything wrong right. There’s no one way to heal, no one way to recover or forgive. But the choice is the same no matter which road you take – choose to believe that this is not all that there is to your story. Life can be different. Life can be better. Life can be beautiful. I want that life for you. I want to see you whole and happy and free. I want you to believe that your life, your story, can be full of joy and love and community. But you’ve got to fight for it. Every single day you’ve got to fight. I know you don’t feel up to the task right now, but don’t let that feeling keep you on your knees any longer. Ask for help. Find someone to anchor you. We are born for one another; we are created to help and to love. You are not alone in your story, you are not alone in your pain, so please don’t try to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders anymore. Reach out, and let people help you pull out the weeds so the beautiful things can begin to grow in your life.
Some much needed one-on-one time w/ my baby girl at the zoo. 🐒🦒🦁
