Here we are on Month 5. I was forced to take on a journey that I had been eyeballing for quite some time, so technically I was not forced, but more-so forced to do something before I was ready!
REALITY CHECK – You are never ever ever ever really ready! You just do it or you don’t! My situation, of course, was a DO or DIE one! So for the last 5 months of true, on your own, not holds barred, entrepreneurship journey, there have been emotions! BOY, have there been emotions and I will be honest, I flippin hate emotions!
Now, before you go off the deep end….I just think emotions get in the way of thinking is all!
So for the last 5 months, my emotions have gone a little something like this:
Pissed: This is just what happens! It happens and then you get over it!
Irritated: What do you mean you do not like my idea, my idea is GRRRRREEAT!?!?
Elated: When I received the call that the house was SOLD!
Excited: YES!!!!! I have a new client and we are about to knock someone’s socks off!
Nervous: Shit! I have a new client. What do I do next?
Overwhelmed: This has to be done. That has to be done. Do the laundry. Cook dinner. Repeat.
Frantic: HOW AM I GOING TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN? PANIC ATTACK!
Tired: Spending endless hours writing, writing, networking, strategizing and the other endless things that must be done!
WTF…WHAT ELSE?: Where to begin? Given 7 days to pack up a 4 bedroom house to move into a 2-bedroom apt. Oh and then the car accident that left my car totaled! The list goes on and on…do or die!
Confident: Woke up one morning with my granola bar in hand ready to take on whatever hit me!
Terrified: Two words – CAR ACCIDENT!
Happy Dance: I did it! I am awesome! I am fabulous! I created killer content!
Mellow: Where the hell is the sun? I need the sun! Instead there are clouds with rain! FINE – I will make my own sun..I think!
Sickly: That day when I deathly ill! Yep that one!
There are more emotions I am sure, some I may have not come across yet and some that I am not ready to talk about yet! Just keep in mind, at the end of the day, YOU control you and your emotions!
Take a walk!
Have a glass of wine!
Talk to an old friend!
Call a mentor!
Write in a journal!
LET IT OUT and MOVE ON! You are depending on YOU!
Now stop whining and get up and do something!
From my fingertips to your eyes
