Though I don't actually have to head out of the house to work in my office, sometimes I just get a hankering to dress up like I do. Leaving the corporate world was one of the best things I could have done for myself, I'm not going to lie though, leaping into the unknown with little to no safety net was terrifying. What if I failed? What if combining all the things I love into a career is the worlds biggest belly flop? What if, worst of all, my loved ones would see me flop? Essentially I was quitting WAY before I had really started and allowing myself to be intimidated instead of inspired by the plethora of talented and successful business women in the same industry. With my focus on others, not myself, things stated to slip - my creativity was shot, my enthusiasm was dulled and I knew my heart was only half in it - in short, perfect flop form. I have to admit, some days are harder than others to 'stay in my lane' and 'just keep swimming' and this past week tested me good and proper but the long and the short of it is that I'm still standing, working, functioning, creating and moving forward ... at the end of the day, that's the goal isn't it?
