Every past experience has been a lesson. A lesson, ultimately, in how to be true to myself.
Being so caught up in the day to day happenings, I lost touch of what truly brings me joy. I am grateful because I now know that every moment of my life has led me to where I am now. Of course, fear can stop us from doing a lot of things, but everything in my past presented itself to teach me how I want to live life and run a business. Those experiences have taught me to be compassionate, maintain my integrity and fight for what I believe in.
I was always meant to be an entrepreneur.
Running a business with my husband is so rewarding. We are able to set our own schedules, spend quality time together, connect with our customers and the local community, and build something great. We can do business on our own terms and do not have to battle with those who are more inclined to care about quantity over quality. It’s refreshing to know that a business can operate successfully, while still caring to do the right thing.
Having transitioned so seamlessly into entrepreneurship, I wonder what took me so long! Being an entrepreneur has brought me back to a space that enjoys the little things in life again. I helped my husband in the garden, I had toast with butter and jelly, something I used to love as a little girl; I actually used the sun roof in my car, I have gone to a local beach and for walks, returned to volunteering at the local cat shelter, and have been able to spend time with family. I discovered the happiness inside of myself that was always there. I let love and joy in again. I’m back to where I was always supposed to be.
Now, I can’t imagine it any other way.
And since it was inspiration for my post title – here’s some Matchbox Twenty for you to enjoy 🙂
