In this day and age of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, so on and so forth and the illusion that a certain amount of followers equates to a specific status, it’s really no wonder why we’ve confused our worth with our titles, social media followings, even our material possessions.
Life is a journey for each of us. The sooner we can remind ourselves that every adventure will require awareness, curiosity, compassion, and vulnerability, the sooner we can breathe out that impossible idea of having control over every single aspect of our lives.
As I enter almost one full year of full-on entrepreneurship, this journey has been an interesting one to say the least. Considering everything that has happened and everything I am about to share with you, I am rejoicing in the choice I made in January and I am proud that I am still standing, still writing.
But it hasn’t been all rave reviews and smooth sailing since that fateful day in January.
I wouldn’t wish my path to this exact point on anyone as I’ve felt incredibly lonely at many different times, I’ve certainly questioned my sanity, and I’ve chosen to stand by my passion rather than listening to those closest to me. Yet, that is precisely why I've marched on and I’ve decided to write and share this piece of my heart with the world. Because I cannot stand the thought of someone sitting back and impatiently waiting to pursue their dreams simply because they don’t have a support system of their own.
