You know those
days, its cloudy, the weather is cooler, its damp, I am rummaging around for
sweaters to wear, I am eating waaaay too many carbohydrates for comfort food
and its all going terribly wrong.
me that all my friends are married to perfect spouses, their children are all
excelling and they’ve launched their own business and overnight Julia Roberts
is wearing their creations and they all tell us they have a ‘SIX FIGURE
my island, people are starting small businesses from ideas they saw on
Pinterest. They can’t keep up with demand and they just started.
They’re hiring videographers to make their films, top graphic artists to do
their websites and oh goodness me, they’ve got 18 million Instagram followers
So today I
stomped around my office like a petulant 3 year old and kept saying ‘I am done,
we’re done, let’s sell off our supplies, and everyone is complaining how competitive
businesses are getting. And I yelled out
“AND I AM QUITTING THIS STUPID 30 DAY BLOGGING, I DON’T HAVE TIME”!!!.
Bloom came over to see what the ruckus was about and quietly sat while I ranted
and raved and then she got up and just hugged me. I tired to explain that
the end was near and I didn’t have energy left to keep going. Then she
made me tea. And an individual oatmeal cake that she specializes
in. And it helped. I picked myself up off my pity party platform
and thought “let’s try this again”.
It helped that I did NOT go on Facebook and look at all the
other popular kids making 6 figure incomes, I checked my messages only and
turned it off. And then I sat down and wrote this blog and realized I had
to keep going. You put one foot in front of the other and you just keep
going. You find a warm sweater, a nice cup of tea and you start
again. And the best part, try and find someone who will give you a hug or
even feed you cake.
