For the past few days I have been in an extremely happy mood. Things have been going well and I am grateful. My friend hosted her first makeup workshop and that was a success! I knew from the. Whining that she was capable but I know the stress of event planning as well. She financed everything herself by saving and being focused. The event was well thought out and the decor was amazing. But the highlight was her! She showed up and was not only informative but engaging and fun. She truly stepped into her power and was a sight to behold. Proud is an understatement.
I was also able to work on an event with another friend of mine. She is an event planner and called in some extra hands for a wedding. It was amazing seeing her in her element and really thriving. She has always been creative but there is an ease about her when she is creating. I guess seeing two amazing women doing their thing reminded me to show up for myself as well. I really put in the time with Tropsical this week and was very productive. Part of the battle is just showing up. If there is something that you love doing, just show up. Do what you need to do to get where you want to go.
Another reason why I have been in a good mood is because I feel like I am in a state of flow. Things have been going smoothly. I usually have a pretty packed scheduled but even so things are just falling into place. Saturday I assisted all day at the workshop but I was still able to leave and make Tropsical sales. On Sunday I worked most of the day but still got to spend some quality time with my daughter in the afternoon. So I started the week energized and motivated. And then today happened. It just felt like everything was different. I wasn’t feeling free and excited. I was irritated and then another situation triggered me and I am just over today. I wasn’t even sure if I was going to post anything. But half of the battle is showing up.
This blog was created for me to share my journey. And the truth is the journey won’t always be sunshine and flowers. Some days I will be tested and it’s how I show up that will make the difference. If I am being honest, I reacted out of emotion instead of controlling my emotions but it’s a learning experience. It’s something that I know I need to work on and I have come a long way because generally, I got this but there are a few, really just a few people who know which buttons to push, even though they shouldn’t. So today was different, not bad but different. I also had some wins today and that’s the silver lining. Sold the most Tropsical pops in a day today. 🎉
Life is a balance of highs and lows but since I have committed my life to God, there is a certain ease. Yes I got frustrated today and one situation wasn’t resolved but I know that it’s ok to mess up. Fall down seven times, get up eight. I took notes today and I hope next time I do better at ignoring the triggers. Sales have been increasing and I am just grateful and overwhelmed by the support. My goal is to keep showing up and giving my all and on days when I stumble, to give myself grace. This week be kind to yourself, let go of perfection and show up. You got this!
