There's something about the fall that brings out all the feels. Maybe it's just me, but I get a little more snuggly and start to think of my loved ones a whole lot more.
Do you start thinking of love, family and cozy everything this time of year?
Let's get real real...This time of year can also bring up some sad realizations like still being a single 30 something, how broken my family is and the slow moving financial growth of a 7 year business. I wouldn't change my decision to follow my dreams, but I do wish hard work paid off more. I know I'm not alone in some of these thoughts. Nearing the holidays brings out the best and worst of us. The things that have gotten me through the discouraging thoughts have been gratitude, resourcefulness, healthy lifestyle and good people. I realize that I chose to take the path less traveled as an entrepreneur. I chose to never settle for less than my dreams, but with that means practicing patience and positive mindset. It takes a whole lot of effort, but I have to believe that it's all worth it.
"Little baby steps", my new go-to phrase.
It may seem like I have it all together or the other Instagram-blogger friends do too, but really we are all real people going through this thing called life together. I don't want to sugar coat my life in hopes to inspire you. I want to offer the stylish and real parts of me in hopes that you feel less alone and more inspired to express fully who you are.
