Today is an anniversary of sorts... ...because 1 year ago, I was LAID OFF for the first time in my life, after the startup event company (that I had left my 9+ year job for) laid off half of its workforce nationwide, right after the holidays and completely out of nowhere. The photo on the left is a picture of me that I shared when I finally posted about the news. The "me" in that photo was going through so many different emotions… Fear… Shame… Confusion. What the hell was I going to do now?? Why had I taken this risk?? What would happen to my family?? We had gone through YEARS of struggles, friends....and this just felt like TOO MUCH. But in amongst all of this, there was also a feeling of TOTAL EXHILARATION. It was FINALLY going to be MY TIME. Because after over a year of dreaming and working towards the goal of I had never felt brave enough to take the leap. Honestly, I was AFRAID of how it would go, being a full-time entrepreneur mom without the safety net of my day job income. It took being laid off to force me into a decision I should have made long before... because, like so many of us have learned, being "comfortable" can also leave you FEELING STUCK. And being BRAVE is what makes us, our lives, EVERYTHING, great. I was brave for me AND my family, because I had BIG DREAMS for us...and even though I have endured MANY ups and downs since, it has also been one of the most rewarding years of my life. ❤Because now I get to choose how I spend my time. ❤I choose to take care of my body in a way that feels right to me. ❤I choose helping others over climbing a ladder and dealing with endless meetings and commutes, working on someone else's dreams. ❤I choose to be present for what matters to me most - my family. This isn't just about a paycheck (although those help!)...it's about loving my life. ❤🙌🏻 I hope you can see how happy the "me" on the right is...because THAT'S who I am now. And it never would have happened if it weren't for being pushed out of my comfort zone...so I will forever be SO THANKFUL for that kick in the butt I needed to say "YES" to this life! 😘🙌🏻 Thanks for being with me on this journey...you are a HUGE reason why I do what I do, friends! 😘

Feel free to drop a ❤ below if you can relate, or if I have ever impacted you in any way...and if I can support you with your goals and dreams too, PLEASE let me know! I'd love to hear from you! 😘🙌🏻
