As we head into the week of Christmas, there will be many opportunities to think about the what and the who but don’t lose sight of your why. This year was the first year where I actually took off all month. I was nervous to do so. I had to turn down opportunities to work with new clients and say no to current clients.
Let me give you a little back story. For years I worked sometimes two and three jobs just to make ends meet. (Let’s be honest here…do they ever really meet tho?) I missed milestones and moments that will not happen again. I hardly saw my children and I was always tired. ALWAYS! One day would slip right into the next one. I know that many can relate to this because I receive messages every week that remind me that there are others living the life that I was living.
Then, a few months ago, after a 7 AM call from my doctor, I had to rush to the ER for a blood transfusion. It was a reality check for sure. Had I forgotten my why again? I had a real hard conversation with myself and decided to make some adjustments. You will have the opportunity to see and even be a part of what I am working on very soon.
My why…was the freedom to live a better life. Better than what you may ask.
Better than living paycheck to paycheck
Better than living on medications or in pain
Better than not having REAL relationships with the people I love
Better than not enjoying brownies before dinner sometimes
Better than the IG lifestyle (That’ll preach right there. lol)
While, I have done a lot of work to live a better life, that hospital visit showed me that I was not living my best life. So, as I embark on this journey, I will be sure to keep you updated. The weekly emails will continue, and I have two major launches coming in 2022. It’s the transition from better to best and I don’t just want it for me. I want it for you too. Over the next few weeks, I will be highlighting some of the accomplishments of 2021. Here is the first one I posted over the weekend. A Blessing with my name on it!

I see myself in this reflection! We spend too much time earning money and forget to live life!

True indeed. It was a great way to shift my mindset for the new year.
