"Today I choose to believe in myself. My dreams are valid and reachable. With each step I take, I am a step closer to achieving my goals. "A statement that digs deep into my beliefs & values of owning a small business.
In these times of uncertainty for a lot of small business, it can be really hard to fight to keep going. The unknown of not knowing when your community will get back to “normal” is terrifying. You have to be able to get yourself out of bed, fight to have a good day sometimes, and keep a positive attitude. You have to BELIEVE in yourself. I will be honest here and tell you that yesterday was a hard day for me. I felt like giving up. I felt like my dreams were not achievable and that nothing I was doing really mattered. I didn't want to get out of bed where my fur babies made me feel safe & loved. But, I had orders to send out and things that needed to be crossed off my list.
Thankfully I have a very supportive husband who cheered me up & gave me validation. He of course always tells me it's okay to stay in bed and take a day off. But I knew that would not make me feel better. I had to regroup this morning and remind myself that some days are better than others, and that is okay. I believe that your mind or body might need a break sometimes. In fact, at this very moment I am under my favorite blanket, watching Friends and catching up on "lay low" tasks that need to get done. I know that with each post, new design, website update, idea and even a day off is getting me one step closer to achieving my goals for Chalk Boss.
So, today I choose to BELIEVE in myself. My DREAMS are valid & reachable. With each step I take, I am a step closer to achieving my GOALS.
